“A super friendly place”
Reviewed 22 December 2010

This B & B is so far one of the best that I have stayed. It is located in a great area with great respect to cultural diversities. The food is healthy and the place is very clean and well maintained. It is a definitely a home away from home highly recommended!!

The entire house is freshly renovated. There's nothing about this place that says used, old, or quaint. Despite this, the atmosphere is entirely welcoming.
Our host, Unal, was so nice to upgrade our room for free! I'd initially booked the Lily room, but received the Violet room instead. It came with a massive private deck, which made for a spectacular bonus.
All of the floors are hardwood, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean and well maintained.
I'm ashamed to say that we didn't wake up in time to catch breakfast, but the spread looked decent. It lacks eggs though, or anything cooked for that matter.
Unal was entirely hospitable and welcoming. He even accommodated our later-than-normal check out time, which was nice for us late risers.
Overall, it's a classy, well-maintained place that I'd love to go back to and greatly recommend!

If you don't mind sharing a bathroom then this small boutique b&b is a perfect alternative to a hotel in downtown toronto. It is located just 5 mins walk to the metro and 15 mins walk to the Eaton Centre. So it is well situated for a trip to Toronto. There are 2 bathrooms for 6 rooms and everything is very clean. The B&B has just been opened and the furniture is all new. We will definitly stay again if we come back one day.

This B&B combines the charm of an old house with modern comfort and style. Tastefully renovated, the rooms were clean and fresh and the host was very hospitable. Five minute taxi ride to theatre and museums. I will go back.

We booked our stay in the Downtown Park Inn for 1 week but extended our stay for another 3 days as we enjoyed our stay so much.

Atmosphere: Everything is really clean (everything gets cleaned every day), the host (Unal) is a really nice guy who helps out, answers your questions and give you good tips.

Amenities: There are 6 rooms in the house which are all nicely decorated and two shared bathrooms which were also nice and clean. It is all brand new and the small amount of rooms make it feel like home. Unfortunatly there is no washing possibility in the Park Inn. But 2 to 3 blocks away there is a big laundry (Maitland street). There is Wireless Lan in the house for free, which is really nice.

Breakfast: is to be self-served - which means that you just get up and make your own breakfast. Everything in the fridge can be used and the table is already set in the morning. There is a dish-washer which is nice: no cleaning dishes. There is always fresh fruits, different kinds of cereals, breads (bagels, toasts), cheese, different jams and marmelades, honey and much more. And the best: it varies all the time with different breads, bagels juices etc.

Location: perfect! Only one block to the subway station (Wellesley). Right in the Wellesley/Church-district with a lot of supermarkets and restaurants around. Perfect location to explore the city. One block away from famous Yonge street as well.

Conclusion: We enjoyed our stay a lot. The Downtown Park Inn is a perfect place for those who want to have a clean, warm and friendly stay in downtown Toronto for little money. We are sure we will come back next time!

I stayed a few nights at the downtown park inn B&B when i arrived in Toronto before finding a flatshare and i have to say that this was one of the best B&B experience I have ever had.
First of all, Unal the onwner welcomed me with the best manners and made me
very comfortable straight away. I had the Iris room and although it was not
huge, it was cosy and sweet. the bed was great, i slept like a baby. there is a club not far from the B&B so very light sleepers could maybe have troubles but as far as i am concerned it did not bother me. It is obvious that this place is in the heart of a vibrant area with many bars and clubs so I was not surprised to hear some light beats. the
bathrooms are on the landing and are beautifuly done. It is all brand new,
very modern: chic and sophisticated with some colourful bits and pieces. The
owner managed to preserve the charm of a homely house. I really felt like i
was at home or staying with friends, welcome to hang out in the lounge. As i just arrived for the very first time in Toronto i was happy to feel that i was not just a number on a room. I had many questions about everything and he (the owner) has been very helpful.
The location is very convenient and central, close to the subway so you could be
shopping on Queen street in just 15 min or just a few blocks away from eaton centre. the price was more than descent and the welcoming atmosphere was beyond what i would have expected: to me that is priceless. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a very nice, friendly, well located place to stay downtown Toronto. Espcially if you are around your 30s and laid back, then this is a place for you!
