“A Suite Dream indeed!”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Arriving in Toronto from Australia, we stayed at A Suite Dreams for four nights in May 2014. What can I say! The proprietor, Mr Tan, is helpful far beyond what anyone would reasonably expect. Not only did he arrange transport, give excellent tourist advice and provide an outstanding breakfast for us, but on one occasion, he physically took us on the subway because traffic problems, (due to a local marathon), had prevented our pick up by the bus. Without Mr Tan’s help that day, we would have missed our trip to Niagara Falls. Mr Tan – Albert – is a wonderful host and an engaging conversationalist. From the moment we arrived, we were made welcome with a lovely cup of tea. Mr Tan’s breakfasts are delicious and his home is cosy, spotlessly clean and welcoming. I cannot imagine a better b & b experience in Toronto and am so pleased we found A Suite Dreams. I highly recommend this as a ‘home away from home’. This b & b reflects Toronto’s spirit of welcoming visitors – and we applaud Mr Tan for his high standard of service. Thankyou for making our stay so memorable!

My story . . . . I recently made the decision to try to avoid HOTELS whenever possible. If you have watched the recent CBC Marketplace reports on the filth found in most hotels, you'll understand why hotels disgust me. (Original episode: http://www.cbc.ca/marketplace/episodes/2012-2013/the-dirt-on-hotels and Follow up episode: http://www.cbc.ca/marketplace/episodes/2013-2014/the-dirt-on-hotels-were-back ). As well, the reports of bed bugs in Toronto hotels is very concerning. I thought about it and realized that perhaps if I want to have a stay where the host actually cares about the quality of my stay, takes pride in what they offer, and has a clean, pest-free place to stay, then perhaps a B&B would be the best option. With that thought in mind, I decided to give Suite Dreams a try based on the great reviews on TripAdvisor. Without a doubt, Albert proved my theory correct! His home was sooooo clean! Cleaner than my own house! As well, everything that he promised was exactly as he said it would be from the convenient parking to the delicious breakfast served right on time. He was also very helpful with advice on how to navigate the city to avoid traffic and shorten travel times. Without a doubt, I am a B&B convert and I will be staying at Suite Dreams again in the future. Thank you Albert. :)

We stayed here for twelve nights of Hot Docs Film Festival in April-May, 2014. Because of the exceptional nature of this B&B, we had a marvellous trip. Our suite was the beautiful Cathedral suite on the top floor where we had a huge amount of quiet space: sitting area with fridge, walk in closet, enormous bathroom, deck and living and sleeping areas. Along with openable windows at each end of the suite, air-conditioning and heat were self-controlled. We found the bed a little softer than ours at home but slept well. Our superb host, Albert Tan, was always gracious, accommodating and engaging. He made special gluten free breakfasts on request, kept a scrupulously clean, smoke-free B&B, offered travel assistance and provided Toronto information readily. Suite Dreams was the best location for us a block from the subway and within walkable distance of Royal Ontario Museum, University of Toronto, Chinatown, both Bloor and Royal Theatres, terrific restaurants, a local library and much more. We both strongly recommend staying here and will stay again in the fall!

Room Tip: We toured two of the other suites when they were empty: Sunrise and Sunset. Though smaller than th...

I stayed at this B&B for three nights in April. The house is very nice and conveniently located in Koreatown near the Annex and Little Italy and just around the corner from Christie subway. The biggest flaws for me were the beds (yes, they're too stiff) and indoor noise that seems to travel from the ground floor even up to the loft on the top floor. I switched rooms the second night from the small street-facing room on the second floor to the loft on the third floor, but I could hear everyone at the breakfast table on the ground floor through the vents and flimsy doors. The doors are plastic or some other light material, and changing them or putting some kind of soundproof padding should help a bit. The owner dismissed my complaints saying I was too sensitive. Finally, the breakfast was the most basic I've ever had at a B&B and wouldn't fly where I'm from. The owner does everything himself (cleaning, check-in, check-out, bookings, "cooking") and doesn't seem to take criticism very well. When you do everything yourself and do not delegate, something suffers, and in this case it's the breakfast. However, I'm more concerned with noise and comfortable beds, as there is plenty of food just around the corner. Due to this experience, I'll be staying at a hotel the next time I visit Toronto. It's just not worth $200 per night (and no cancellation!).

Room Tip: The third floor loft or large second-floor room facing the back.

Selected Suite Dreams because it was near our daughter's home, close to restaurants & transportation. It is clean, quiet, beds are good & breakfasts are tasty but the best part is Albert Tan. Gracious accommodating host, engaging gentleman, goes the extra mile. Gives great dining, parking and touring advice.

This is the second time we stayed with Mr. Tan. As per last time, everything was superb, specially the host!!

All the mornings we were enthusiastic with the breakfast (you must try the cheese omelet, it is a must) and the lovely conversations with Mr. Tan. With this regard we must really thank him because he prepared two days earlier the breakfast because we needed to leave early.

Regarding the room, this time we stayed in the Cathedral Suite. Described in one word: Amazing!

Finally, as we said last time, the location is strategic: a lot of stores and restaurants walking distances. And the Metro is only one block away.

Suite Dreams Toronto B&B is Home away from Home! See you next year 

Room Tip: If you want a spacious room, choose the Cathedral Suite.

Selected Suite Dreams because of its proximity to our daughter, and but also found that driving in and out of downtown Toronto was not difficult, taking anywhere between 12 and 20 minutes depending on traffic. Parking is available just down the street at $10/day, and access to public transportation is close by. The room, “Sunset Suite,” was spacious and well furnished, spotless, and had a comfortable double bed. Having to prepare a conference presentation, I especially appreciated the large desk and multiple outlets for computer, iPhones, etc. Mr. Tan is a gracious host, helpful in offering suggestions and attending to any need. Breakfast offered a choice of items, served in an inviting atmosphere. Glad we found Suite Dreams on TripAdvisor, and no doubt will return when visiting Toronto.
