Convenient for the Sights Downtown!

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 13, 2011

I stayed in this hotel one night during my 2000 trip when I toured Canada. The rooms were pretty basic but functional and very convenient for the city's attractions. It remember it being a very busy hotel and found the hotel staff rather impersonal and rushed particularly at breakfast time when there were so many people to see to.

I've noted on the hotel's website that the hotel has been renovated in 2011 and has a more contemporary and urban feel to it.

Please note breakfast is generally not included in the hotel rates.

Unique Quality: I remember the hotel not just offered the standard rooms but suites with spa bathrooms and business class rooms. The hotel also has a conference centre for meetings and events along with a fitness centre and other facilities you expect in a three star hotel.

Directions: Downtown at Yonge and Dunda Squares. Not far from the Toronto Theatre District, Eaton Centre and other attractions.

I would recommend this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was small for two people but you could always ask for a bigger room.

Unique Quality: Downtown City View, In the Middle of Everything

Directions: Financial District

Overlooking Yonge-Dundas Square, and located in the heart of downtown Toronto, this hotel is ideal for the busy tourist that likes to spend as little time in their hotel room, and getting to the heart of the action!

This hotel has clean bathrooms, and ok rooms - although there seemed to be a smell of cigarettes even in the non-smoking rooms. Being located in the heart of the city, the lights coming from the surrounding buildings (Eaton Center, etc..), and noise coming from the hustle and bustle of the city can make it difficult for you to sleep early (if you are planning to do so) - but that may be the trade-off for being right in the center of Toronto.

Unique Quality: - Excellent Location
- Friendly Staff

Directions: Bordering street: Dundas Street East

Central location, good price

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 14, 2004

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days and overall it was a good experience.

Front-desk staff were less than friendly, but still quite professional, the room was OK, but not great, but it was reasonably large and clean and that is enough for me.
Location is very good, just behind Dundas square and the Eaton Centre.
If you want to go see a theatre play, you are 2 minutes away from a ticket sales point.
There is a desk in the Hotel where you can arrange sightseeing tours and get vouchers for the CN Tower or helicopter rides.

I got a great rate online, with a free night so we paid an average of 100 CAD/night

UPDATE:
We stayed here again during our last stay, this time for 8 nights and it was another good experience.
We were first placed on the second floor by the not-very-friendly girl at the front desk, but the view was not any good (we had a tree right in front of us) and there were buses parked (with their engine on) early in the morning. The usual street noise was also quite noticeable.
The next day I went to the front desk again and this time I spoke to a very friendly person (the front desk manager) who was very kind and placed us on the 16th floor with a view overlooking Yonge street (you don't actually see it because of the buildings, but its quite nice).
Rooms were still clean and comfortable, they seemed a bit smaller this time, but still adequate.

There was wireless internet available for 8.95/day, which is only available on some floors, so if you need it ask for a room with access or take the laptop to the lobby. I was told there is also a computer you can use in the basement. Be careful, however, as the subscription is actually renewed automatically if the time is up... without any warning. If you subscribe for 24 hours (you can also subscribe for just one hour or one month), one minute after you will be billed another 24 hours, so make sure you keep track of time.

We paid 100CAD/night including taxes, so I was glad to see that the prices did not go up since our last trip. Parking is 14 CAD/day.

Unique Quality: Good location

Directions: Driving up Yonge Street (coming from the lakefront), turn right when you see the Eaton Centre at your left (right at the corner of the Hard Rock Cafe), straight on and then turn right at the traffic lights,

We stayed at the Bond Place Hotel.
Our stay was part of a citybreak package.

Unique Quality: Reasonably priced hotel. Part of a Thomas Cook citybreak package. Good restaurant for breakfast and evening meal. Excellent location. Short walk to the Eaton Centre. Handy for the tram to Chinatown. Saw black squirrrels at the back of the hotel.

In my opinion, this is a one-star motel trying to hide its actual station under the guise of renovated rooms & newer but very cheap furniture.

I would never recommend this hotel to anyone; I have had better experiences staying in the military bunkhouses of NATO military camps in Bosnia. We will never do business again with this hotel based on this experience.

Rooms:

* Very clean & in good repair.
* Very small, cramped, and uncomfortable.
* No hair conditioner provided, only shampoo.
* Uncomfortable mattresses.
* Floor air conditioner blows directly on to the bed making it uncomfortable and difficult to sleep (turn it on and the cold air keeps you awake - turn it off and you sweat to death as the room temperature rapidly rises).
* No phone at bedside; the phone is located on a shelf on the far side of the room.
* Phone has no speakerphone or mute function.
* No chest of drawers or nightstand drawers for use during extended stays.
* No desk and a small, uncomfortable chair.
* Toilet seat too small for the fixture - more comfortable to use with the seat up.
* Shower stream is weak - many of the shower head nozzles are not functional, most likely clogged judging from the lime scale on the head.
* The bathroom's sliding door and the toilet flush is extremely noisy - enough to wake one that is sleeping.

Services & Staff:

* Elevators from hell - the wait for elevators is often over five minutes when called and they occasionally get stuck.
* Rude front desk staff - the woman behind the desk became snarky when I asked for an incidentals receipt and handed it over with a snitty, fake smile.
* Helpful, friendly, and professional cleaning staff.
* Rude restaurant personnel - the three staff sitting at a table in the empty restaurant were irritated with my wife interrupting them and made her uncomfortable enough to leave.
* No room service.
* Insecure, slow wireless internet (no authentication required, only room number and name).
* No onsite parking.

Location:

* Good central location close to Dundas Subway Station.
* For shoppers, the Eaton's Centre is a short walk away.
* Guests receive 25% of food at the nearby Imperial Pub (avoid the hotel restaurant and dine there - our experience at the pub was terriffic).
* Several fast food locations nearby.
* The neighbourhood appears to be a seedy area. Bums and beggars abound - within minutes of our arrival we were accosted several times and several more times in the days following.
