"Great Place To Stay - Clean, Safe and Dry"
09/23/14 James C Pincher Creek, Canada
Stayed at Annex House on 83 Spadina Road for the first time for Sept 7th to 12th, 2014. Great place to stay and located next door to the Bloor-Spadina Station, which means 14 minutes to Union Station downtown. Very clean and very little rug or carpeting. All furnishing either wood or easily laundered or washed cloth, unlike those big hotels continuing to use those infrequently washed bedspreads. Would say the Vasta structure has a lot to do with it. It is also located to Honest Ed's (a definite tourist destin you must go to before it closes up) and at least 100 restarants and pubs easily within a 5 minute walk. Will I stay there again? Most definitely!. Best "Clean, Safe, Dry Accommodation Deal In Downtown Toronto!" - James C, Pincher Creek AB
"Friendly staff, good location"

This is more of an inn than a hotel offering plenty of charm in a converted Annex style house. While this makes the layout a bit odd and cramped and the rooms not that large, it has been completely renovated and the rooms are clean and modern and nicely decorated. Free wifi, bottled water, mini-fridge, and snacks. All of the staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. The subway entrance is literally right next door and getting around is very convenient. There are endless options of places to find great food in easy walking distance. It might not be everyone's cup of tea, and the 4 stars is based on the type of place that it is, but I enjoyed the neighborhood, the charm, and the reception. I would go back again.
"Another nice experience"
09/06/14 OutsideTraveller Ottawa, Canada
We've visited them again in a long time. Nicely maintained, same friendly atmosphere, clean and tidy. Not much option of rooms as all of us came for same events I guess, but overall a great experience at much lower cost than hotels round the corner. Have recommended to our friends and came together this time.

Poor initial first impression was difficult to erase. Small unswept and dirty front entryway leads to a narrow hallway around which office could be found. Stairway up to the third floor was narrow and hot, half empty bag of toilet paper rolls remained on the landing for our entire four day stay. ThIrd/top floor room had window that would only partially open and never let enough air in to cool off the room , even as the evenings cooled down, requiring constant running of noisy room air conditioner (even while we were out during the day). The noise of the ac did block the noisy traffic, as the house is on a noisy heavily travelled street. Room was furnished with shabby and worn 'garage sale' type furniture, although the bed was comfortable and the bathroom shower decent. Room service was non-existent, and i had to ask repeatedly for them to empty the garbage and give us some clean towels. It apparently had 'slipped the mind' of the staff to pick up our room. Returning at 3:00 on the following day, they 'hadn't gotten to it yet". Office staff seemed quite confused, initially reserving two rooms for us , although i had only reserved one, and then not seeing yet another email when i responded that we wanted one room only. Price quoted on the room also increased twenty dollars, although they later denied ever giving me a lower quote. Office staff was also curt , except for one woman who helped us out with printing something. ALthough check in was to be at 3:00, the room was not ready at 2:45 and we were told to go around the corner to the coffee shop. Felt quite depressing returning to this hotel and i would say it definitely detracted from our stay in Toronto. The place definitely needs some 'spiffing up" and better management.
"Simple and comfortable"

It was great to have the mini snack bar especially with water: the drink of life. The view of the sky and trees from my window was my therapy every morning. The walls are thin though so I was disturbed by noises. I stayed here for 2 and 1/2 months so that can become annoying. The decor is interesting but I think a bit too much for the space. I would recommend it though because it's simple and comfortable enough.

Overall, I like the concept of this place, but it feels as though it's past its prime, perhaps having lost its original management (??) The good: comfortable, clean bed; reasonably well-appointed room; interesting sink faucet; right next to subway station; parking available; easy walking distance to many attractions The not-so-good: tiny bathroom has ceiling caving in over shower; at about 6:30 a.m., a plumbing problem presented in the form of regular thumping in the walls somewhere... lasted for about 10 minutes... most disruptive to sleeping (come to think of it, maybe it was other guests enjoying an amorous morning, tho there really didn't seem to be anyone else staying there on the day we were there)... when I mentioned this disruption to the staff, the young lady advised that it is an old house, so noises are to be expected; parking area immediately beside subway station; back external stairway entrance was unsafe; complementary food is a study in preservatives
"Our go-to guest house in TO"
07/08/14 Foodie_Mouse Montreal, Canada
Everything in downtown Toronto is expensive, so even though I would like this place to be a bit more affordable, when compared to the hotel and airbnb offerings, this still comes out the winner. The hubby and I love the Annex area of Toronto. It is great to stroll and things stay open late-- which we love! The guest house is basic, a little creaky at times and of course you'll hear other people when they go up the stairs and whatnot-- but it's clean, quaint and comfortable. The decor is charming.
"good location but noisy"

After reading reviews, I was looking forward of my stay at Annex. I did like my room when I entered it, it was cozy and I enjoyed my evening in my room when it was quiet. However, there were noise through the first two nights and steps/noise from upstairs could be heard clearly which was quite annoying in the early morning.

Well, I will definitely spend the extra money next time I need to stay over in Toronto. This place was just on the cusp of OK. The bed was OK, sheets and comforter worn but clean. Great location but very old building. Microwave was quite disgusting. It was supposed to be in the "B&B' category but I don't call granola bars and water bottles enough. Hot water took about 5 minutes to appear when showering. Quiet enough but I just would rather for more 'hotel' like standards.
"Quiet and pleasant"
05/08/14 Yukonbis Whitehorse, Canada
I stayed here for three nights visiting family. Right next to subway and not far from any where downtown. Room are small but very pleasant. Bottle water and snacks were free for the taking. The service was prompt, courteous and friendly. Will stay again. Very clean.
