I stayed in this hotel on two occassions in the past 2 years.
This is a very good hotel right in the center of downtown Toronto. The Via Rail station is a 5 minute walk away from the hotel, Bay and King (i.e. financial district) is a 10 minute walk, and the Eaton Center is approx. a 20 minute walk. Can't do much better than that in Toronto.
The rooms are extremely clean, albeit a bit on the small side. But I cannot complain about smallness with such amazingly low prices. Aside from smallness, many of the rooms also don't come with a "view".
I recommend this hotel without hesitation for people wishing to stay in downtown Toronto on a budget.
