About 5 minutes of walking to the chinatown with cheap parking. It's not too expensive, but the cleanliness was poor. The room smell bad (probably because of the really old carpet) and had to buy a "Frebreze" to get rid of the strong smell. They might try to charge you extras when booking online if you are not careful. Other... More

This basic hotel has a lot going for it........the location is great for getting around Toronto with a pleasant park adjacent. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the price is very reasonable. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable with everything you need for a short stay.

Was thrilled to find this hotel for my short stay downtown with a friend and my significant other. Made for an excellent base camp with a short walk to Queen west and anywhere else you'd want to check out. Parking was plentiful and no extra charge. Bring ear plugs because it backs on to a park that can be noisy.... More

I stayed at Alexandra hotel in September 2016, and I was in a little studio with my gf. The hotel is located 5 minutes walk from Kensington Market, and Chinatown.

Easy to get around for here, lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Very old basic room with small kitchenette. Older ensuite too. Clean but some weird smell- ??? Air freshener. We left the window open all the time which helps. A/c isn't great, only on or off, can't control temp at all.

Perfect for someone looking for a cheap place to sleep, without all the luxury of a hotel. The rooms are locked with a key. Our room had lovely pee aroma to it. As well, there were hairs on our pillows. The woman working the front desk was very short tempered and did not make the place feel welcoming. However, AC... More

This is a perfect location for people who are in Toronto for the first time and want to enjoy the city and see the sights. It is in a quiet location next to a local park and a less than 5 minute walk from Queen St. West and all of the restaurants and shopping it has to offer. The room... More

We were in Toronto for only one night (attending a concert) and the Alexandra was just what we needed, and fit our budget. The accommodations are simple, but everything was very clean and nicely organized. It is walking distance to Toronto's Chinatown with parking on site, and only about 10 minutes by car from the lakefront, during non-rush hours. We... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
