My wife and I enjoyed our week at Havinn. It was fine. We drove up to Toronto from Illinois for our son's wedding and were grateful to find a place like Havinn (so close to downtown) with free breakfast and speed wi-fi incl. Worry-free parking very cheap. For price and location (with lots of trees around but so near to downtown), you really can't beat this B&B. We saved plenty of money compared to the big downtown hotels and liked the homey family style atomsphere.
B&B just a block away from the TTC, but since we like short walks, we just set off down Spadina to the restaurants and shopping. Everything convenient to TTC subway and trolley cars; it's really crazy and unnecessary to use a car. There are many different eating places close by, but make sure you try the Chinese steamed and stuffed bowza (sp?) with a bowl of sweet and sour soup. It makes a real good lunch.
Gary the innkeeper and his wife Emiko were very nice to us. I don't understand the negativity. Everything we asked for like extra towels and pillows, Gary provided. The breakfast was quite adequate. We enjoyed the self-serve and homey family style atmosphere. We slept well. We ate well. It was friendly and comfortable. We parked our big van right in the back yard. And the price for the week was a bargain. If our second son ever gets married to Canadian from Toronto, we'll be back! LOL
