We went for the 7:30 show. Make sure you get there around 6:30 or it may be hard to get a table. We had mixed reviews of our food. One of us had a beef burger and fries and was very satisfied. One of us had the veggie burger. The bun and burger were burned yet the burger was cold...

paid far too much ($170US EACH!) for day trip to Cu Chi Tunnels and Mekong Delta. The tour we were promised ended up being the same tour other tour groups offer for $50. The only difference was we drove in a private car instead of a bus or van. Tourist Beware. WE learned our lesson the hard way. The hotel...

A great breakfast for under $12 total omelet, sausage, potatoes, toast, coffee and it all tastes good! They have a good lunch and dinner as well. Usually in the afternoon you get to enjoy live jazz almost every day.

Stayed here one night in December. Price was great for location. We stayed in room 222 and the radiator heating was not working. Staff left an electric heater in the room which we needed to have on all night, and the room still wasn't quite warm enough. (outside temperature was -2C). Walls in bathroom were very dirty and had a...

We stayed here and what I loved about it was the atmosphere. This place makes me think of Toronto and when I was growing up here. I just feel comfortable here. Nothing fancy. Low cost. Friendly staff and people! This place is in the heart of the city so you can walk to many bars or restaurants or a quick...

Me and husband stayed for 5 days. The rooms are Small but very neat,a decent bathroom. The owner was very hospitable he even asked us if we needed some cleaning at the room.. But the rest of the staff wasn't that friendly as like him. There were times that the music from downstairs was a little loud especially on weekend.

This hotel is at the back of a jazz bar right in downtown Toronto - the closest you can get to many of the city's attractions, is reasonably-priced, clean, safe and with friendly staff. I was so excited to find it - it was a small but awesome upgrade from the hostel that we usually stay at and was well...

I recently spent 5 nights here on my cross-Canadian trip. The location is excellent - right around the corner from the subway and short walk to Union Station, and close to some great food also on Queen St. The staff in the hotel and bar were all very attentive and welcoming. The bar is the reason I decided to stay...

We stayed at The Rex for two nights on our way across Canada. It was great. The atmosphere is fun and musical and friendly. The fish and chips and Club sandwich are great. Our room was small but it was clean and comfortable. It is within walking distance to everything. Close to buses and street cars and a taxi is...

Neighbourhood Profile
Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
