Very affordable adorable place to stay

Toronto Garden Inn is a very cute homey quaint place to stay while in Toronto. Ergin the host is a very nice guy, very accommodating and while there are only 2 bathrooms for a max of around 14 people in the house, if you don't mind waiting a few minutes for the loo from time to time, it is really a charming place to stay for a good price. There is kitchen access and a fridge full of food available 24-7 and it is fun to cook your own eggs in the morning and sit around the big kitchen table and get to know your fellow inn-mates.

Friendly welcome, comfortable and clean

Just stayed four nights at the Toronto Garden Inn and felt well looked after by the helpful friendly hosts Ergin and Unal. Great location in Cabbagetown with lots of interesting Victorian architecture in a leafy, quiet street and easy access to downtown. Affordable (shared bathrooms) but they were spotless and my room was comfortable. Most important, the place had a great atmosphere and I met lots of interesting people passing through.

Friendly, clean, 10 Min. to Eaton Center

Das Haus mit sechs Zimmern (eines im EG, vier im 1. Stock, eins im 2. Stock) hat zwei Badezimmer, die sehr sauber sind. War immer frei, wenn ich es brauchte. Die Zimmer sind vom Stil gewöhnungsbedürftig, aber sauber und im Endeffekt auch gemütlich. Das Frühstück in der Küche ist super. Man kann sich alles nehmen aus dem Kühlschrank, sich einen Kaffee oder Tee kochen. Saft ist ebenfalls immer da. Auch Früchte kann man sich nehmen. Mit der Straßenbahn, die 24 Stunden fährt, ist man in 8 bis 10 Minuten in der Dundas Street direkt am Eaton-Center. Die Bahn ist praktisch direkt vor der Tür. Der Inhaber Unal Bargu ist eine sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Person. Das ganze Haus ist sehr sauber. Eine wirklich gute Alternative zum Hotel, wenn man auf Zimmerservice und anderen Schnickschnack verzichten kann. Wireless-Lan ist ebenfalls vorhanden. Ich kann es besonders jungen Leuten empfehlen, die für wenig Geld eine gute Unterkunft suchen. (wir haben pro Nacht inklusive Taxes 93 Kan Dollar bezahlt). Viel Spaß Eva und Thomas

Location, price, conversation!!

I stayed in the Inn for almost two weeks -- great hosts (Unal and Ergin), conveniently located (one block away from streetcar Route 505, I believe, and 1 km away from Dundas Subway). The rooms were clean, the hosts were friendly, wireless service was fast and interrupted, adequate cable channels were in the rooms, continental breakfast was served every single day, I interacted with folks from all over the, fun and friends. As a stranger in a strange land, I had my fill!!

Great vibe.

Friendly staff and a homey vibe at this converted-house hotel. The communal kitchen and living room make good spots for conversation, day and night. The staff sets the breakfast table each morning. The rooms are beautiful and well-kept. If you don't mind sharing a bathroom with other guests, it's a wonderful place.

excellent place
