Affordable hotel in downtown Toronto

Pros: Location, breakfast
Cons: Little worn.
Location: Close to everything, Union station one block away, excellent connection by rail to Toronto Pearson International Airport.
Good value for money considering location, excellent breakfast. Rooms ok, noise on lower floors.

Great Location / Price

Hotel has a great location and is reasonably priced. The only issue I have is having to pay extra for WIFI, it is a small fee but could easily be built in to the price.

Unbeatable location for the price

Great location only a short walk from Eaton center and CN Tower. This hotel didn't have a pool, but when you are shopping and sight seeing that doesn't matter, as long as the weather is good.

Small room but perfect for our stay

The hotel is located close to the train station and only a few minutes (10-15) walk from the main shopping area in one direction and the CN Tower in the other. Everything was within walking distance from the hotel and the hop-on-off bus stopped a few metres from the hotel. Plenty of resturants in the local theatre district and around. The rooms where small but perfect for us as we were out site seeing most of the day, so only really there to sleep. But comfty beds and a lovely shower. Air con was a bit nosey, but soon got used to that. I would consider staying there again.
