Alexandra: no frills, but that's expected

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 9, 2010

It was a decent place to stay in. I was not looking for big amenities like spas and workout rooms, and this place does not have any. It is a bit small, but basically clean, and within walking/transit distance of most of the major parts of the city. I was very satisfied as all I really needed was a shower and a bed. The mini-kitchen and included dishes were nice.

Unique Quality: It is in a residential neighborhood, so there were some less than impressive environmental factors (some garbage, graffiti, etc.) Also near Kensington Market and Chinatown.

Directions: just off of Queen street West

Friendly and Reassuring

All in all, we ended up with a nice stay. The place was inexpensive and close to the fashion district and Chinatown/Kensington Market. It was dark when we arrived, and we were skeptical about the area we were in, since it was residential and the houses and garages were rundown, decorated with graffiti and piles of trash adorned the driveways and back yards. The man at the desk was very reassuring that the area wasn't bad and that we (and my darling, beautiful car) would be safe. They were also very helpful with showing us where to go and how to get around. They also let me keep my car there for a while after checking out during our exploration of the city.

Unique Quality: The shower had great water pressure, and the beds were very comfortable. Christy and I both got a great night's sleep, and the best part was, I could look out my 6th floor window directly at the parking lot where the hot rod sat. Any time I got nervous I could look out the window to make sure my "baby" was safe and sound...
They also have a sink and microwave for mini-kitchen use.

Directions: 3 blocks off Queen St., between Queen and Dundas off Bathurst in the fashion district, about 5 blocks from Spadina.

Good, inexpensive accomodations

It isn't the fanciest joint in town, but it was clean, comfortable and pretty inexpensive. Located just a few blocks from China Town and Kensington Market, it is pretty convenient to some of the trolley lines and while it's not in the midst of the downtown areas, on a nice day it is a pleasant walk. :-)

It is more of a hotel/apartment than the more traditional hotels are. Since I'm not interested in a concierge, spa, exercise room, etc in most hotels I did not miss them at all. (and didn't have to pay for them either!)

Unique Quality: Easy access to transportation, parking lot for those driving, a city park right behind it, close enough to the center of town to walk and a kitchenette in every room.

Directions: West on Queen from Spadina, right on Ryerson and stop before you walk/drive into the park and you're there.

Don't bother coming here. You might save $30 by not being at the downtown hotels, but the quality of your accomodation will drop dramatically if you stay here.

I like the neighborhood you walk through along Queen street to get here from downtown; very eclectic and colorful. But once you arrive here, you'll likely be dissapointed. It felt like a college dorm room to me.

inexpensive and clean

Besides being inexpensive (89$ a night) this place is in a cool, funky neighborhood. It's about a 20 minute walk from the subway and the walk can be as much fun as the destination. The hotel is not new or upscale, but clean.

Directions: take a right off of Queen Street if coming from downtown.
