We booked the Cupola room for 5 nights. We were getting married in Casa Loma on the 3rd day we were there and wanted something special - not just a normal hotel, but somewhere with a more friendly feel. We couldn't have wished for more. Justin & Caroline, the owners, are fantastic hosts. Justin was there on his own for...

Caroline and Justin are supreme hosts, and their B&B is simply tops. We tend to avoid B&B's (lack of amenities, intrusive owners, too many ye-olde frou-frous, etc.), so we're really glad we listened to Tripadvisor reviewers and chose to stay in this wonderful property with such delightful people. The beautifully renovated house has a serene elegance, with stylish upholstery, saturated...

From the initial enquiry emails till we reluctantly said our goodbyes our experience was nothing but positive at Butterfingers. Jason and Caroline welcomed us in the their amazing home like we were family. We arrived early on the day of check in and our room was free, so they kindly let us settle in and get cleaned up for an...

This place was beautiful - 2 stunning rooms in a beautifully converted Victorian house. The hosts were wonderfully friendly, the decor is fabulous, we had our own lounge area as well as a great bathroom and bedroom. The bed was extremely comfy and there were lots of lovely personal touches such as chocolates on our pillow, books beside the bed....

We stayed for 5 nights while visiting family pre-xmas. It's a lovely restored Victorian. The bed was super-comfy and welcoming to come back to after a day of tromping in the snow. The bathroom was toasty warm on a cold winter's day and the whole place was beautifully decorated. Half a block to the Queen streetcar, it's convenient to get...

My husband and I found Butterfingers to be the perfect B&B to stop. Butterfingers really is a gem of a place, they are THE perfect hosts, we felt so at home whilst we stopped there. The hosts were always ready at hand to help, assist on places to visit, restaurants etc... Constantly going out of their way to accommodate us....

Myself and my girlfriend planned to stay in Toronto for three nights at the end of our 10 day trip to Canada. Having researched both hotels and B&Bs on Trip Advisor we settled on Butterfingers. We were so impressed we thought we would write our first review! Location - we arrived at Union Street station on a Wednesday afternoon. We...

We just returned from three nights at Butterfingers and had such a great stay that I was compelled to write my first TripAdvisor review. Justin and Caroline are perfect hosts--down to earth, helpful, friendly, knowledgeable. We loved their restaurant recommendations and their delicious and hearty breakfasts. (I tend to choose B&Bs based on the reviews of the breakfasts, because I...

If you've found it, book it and don't even think about staying somewhere else. I travel a lot with work and am well used to staying in 5* hotels like the Malmaison chain and, without wanting to sound like a spoiled princess, my expectations are high. And I was utterly delighted by my stay at Butterfingers - the house is...

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
