This was perfect for our family. We could walk to downtown and Leslieville was just a short streetcar ride away. The kitchen was well-quipped and having a washing machine/dryer was a great bonus. There is a FreshCo within walking distance (about 10 minutes) for groceries. Monique had a travel crib for us to use; all we had to bring was a sheet and sleepsack and our babe was very comfy. Sherbourne and Queen does look a bit rough at night. We did not feel unsafe in this neighbourhood but if out at night, I would recommend taking a cab home. Monique was just a text away and would answer our questions quickly. We would love to stay here again some time.
The apartment was well presented, clean and spacious. Private access made it feel like a home from home. Monique, our hostess, provided great communication at all times and ensured a range of maps etc. were available for navigating the sights. The apartment was well located, just 10 minutes from St.Lawrence Market (a great place for breakfast) and approximately 20 minutes from the Eaton Centre and the heart of all the action. When you first leave the apartment (the street it's on is lovely) you can pass a Dollerama with quite a few homeless people congregating, but don't be daunted in anyway - they are very polite and give you space as you pass by. Once you pass this side street (which you can easily avoid if you prefer) you are close to everything, including the waterside. A beautiful apartment, well worth the price, excellent location - a very happy holiday.
Been to Toronto many times and I would have to say that I enjoyed my stay here more then any other. The Suite is definately charming but also clean, organized and makes for a wonderful stay in the city. If you are looking for a great place to stay that's only a 15 minute walk to downtown, then this is the place. Lastly, the owner, Monique is a wonderful host!! For my next trip to Toronto, I will be staying here again for sure. A wonderful experience!!
