“A gem at this price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2005

If you want room service, daily housekeeping and multi-channel tv this is not the place for you. If on the other hand you want a cheap room (we paid CDN$79 per night) right in the heart of the city (it's located behind Nathan Philips Square close to the bus station and Eaton Centre) with a free breakfast buffet then this is a great deal. Formerly the Colony Hotel the rooms obviously have a hotel feel with comfortable beds and chairs, nice bathrooms, a writing desk and table. There is a hairdryer in the bathroom and also an iron and ironing board. Housekeeping comes around twice a week but there are plenty of towels available to keep you going.

Check-in was quick and simple. You have to show your key to security before going up to your room but the staff are very friendly. Check out was no problem either and there was no problem storing our bags until later. An added advantage of the hotel is that the airport express bus stops directly outside the front door so no long walks with luggage. I found this hotel thanks to reviews on here and would have no problem recommending it to others.

Great place! This is the cheapest place with the best atmosphere I know in downtown Toronto. I paid $79 a night as opposed to $150 that I normally pay in other hotels. The only difference is that there was no TV in the room. But who is goes to Toronto to watch TV. I would definately stay there again, this place is a keeper!

Great rooms, great location and a good value. A university of Toronto residence the rest of the year but visitor accommodation for Summer season. Friendly and helpful staff and a welcoming atmosphere. If you have a minimum 3 night stay(they don't accept shorter bookings) in downtown Toronto, this is the place to be!
