I stayed here a few years ago when I first visited Toronto. The staff was friendly although the hotel itself wasn't very appealing at all. However I was able to sleep well there without any major distractions. It is within walking distance of the rogers centre and the cn tower so the location is great.

Real Simple. The picture on the ex website or any other site is wrong. What you get is a dilapidated house, police cars on the street because of the drugs that are present in the area. Don't waste your money or time. I have never written such a negative review and we had to fight for our money back.

I booked this hotel via Expedia, arrived and was waiting 20 min to the host that eventually arrived, was extremely rude. We got single bed (without beddings, just mattress) instead of double bed that was promised, which of course wasnt suitable for a couple. I asked Jay to cancel he said ok (after we paid) and after I left he... More

If you want to live in a wardrobe like Harry Potter this is the place for you. Super tiny rooms like 4m2. Didn't feel comfortable at all in the basement there. Cleanliness was OK but is improbable. They try to avoid cleaning by having a shoes off rule for the whole house..

My recommendation is to choose another hotel in Toronto. We called Toronto Travelers home to ask for late check in and the person who answered the phone said it is okay. But apparently he didn't leave a note for the staff after his own shift and when we got there they already have given our room to another guest. They... More

Me and my wife spent a few nights at travellers home during the summer, and the top qualities of the place are 1 - the location, near subway and public transport in general, and walking distance of the CN tower and the aquarium; 2 the the reasonable price and 3 - the friendliness of the owners and employees.

As I tried to check-in, the receptionist pushed me towards the door because he said he wanted to make sure I had a reservation. When I asked him not to push me, he literally responded: "why so sensitive? Were you damaged as a little kid?" I don't think it's too much to ask not to be pushed by the hostel's... More

My room was very clean, reception was friendly. In the heart of Chinatown which is so much fun. However, my room was on the first floor and it's very noisy there. You hear the squeaky door every time someone comes or goes. People arriving past 11pm and even one showing up at 3:20 am. The night manager was very loud,... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
