I've stayed in this B&B two times. Both have been pleasant stays. Location is brilliant, two subway stations are close, a walking distance from some nice bars and so on. People there have been really nice as well. The rooms are not very modern or up-to-date, but I haven't been bothered. I highly recommend this place.

I booked a room here via hostels.com. I then emailed the Castlegate directly to ask about the cost of parking, and they informed me that they were sold out for the dates I booked. After telling them that my reservation with Hostels.com was confirmed, they told me I would have to request a refund, as they would not honour my... More

Yes, this is a cheap place and yes they are about to turn it into a youth hostel but in case they haven't yet, do not go there. I have been in several B&Bs in different countries and this is by far the worst ever. The owners have no sense of customer service whatsoever. Cheap does not mean disrespectful. The... More

I absolutely loved it and I would definitely recommend it. I stayed here with my husband and we absolutely lived the location. I would definitely recommend it. Though the rooms aren't the best you definitely get what you paid for.

Stayed in May for a few days. The arrogance of the owner is matched only by his incompetence. Key didn't work in a room I was transferred to. I couldn't get anyone on the phone. It was 9 o'clock at night. I ended up sleeping on the floor in the hallway. Never again.

When I couldn't get into residence for my third year at U of T, I ended up having to crash at my friend's frat for a month before moving into my own single room at the Castlegate Inn.

I recently stayed in this Bed & Breakfast for a week and really enjoyed my stay. The vintage looking rooms feel like they're out of a movie. All rooms and facilities are very clean, however, old. Don't expect any contemporary features or 5-star service. The staff is friendly and helpful but their office hours are usually very short, only 9am... More

I didn't even stay at this establishment because I had such a terrible experience with the "manager" who would not give his name. Nowhere on their website do they have their cancellation policy. The policy is that if you cancel within seven days of your stay, you forfeit the entire amount of your booking. However, this cancellation policy was only... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
