Style on a Budget..if you are under 40

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 10, 2005

This place was a shot in the arm for the Queen West West area when opened nearly 2 years ago. This crazy IT dude ditched his business to open this ambitious "art, design" hotel in a sketchy area. Very ambitious, sometimes works, sometimes doesn't..but at least it is never boring!
Rooms are very small and meant for a nite of 2. This is not a place to stay a week. Also on weekends noise can be an issue so I would suggest this place for sound sleepers or party animals that go to bed at 4am.
Beds are new and comfortable but don't expect Heavenly Beds.
Bathrooms are shower only so bathtub fans need to go elsewhere.

Great thing is that for the younger cool crowd rates are affordable while offering a "local" experience..regular tourists don't come here or this area.

Unique Quality: wannabee quirky, artsy, fartsy...great place to see Torontonians try really hard to be alternatively cool, bohemian and trendy. Celebrities occasionally hit this place so could be good for star spotting..not that Torontonians are into that!

Unlike anything else in this city..or Toronto for that matter.
