Much Love for The Annex Hotel!
I simply love this hotel. It’s a true Toronto gem. Very clean and cozy rooms with an awesome staff to match. The drink and pizza menu are a must to try. The live band and comedian during the week really made the experience complete. I look forward to staying here again during my next visit to Toronto.

Great Niche Hotel
Couldn’t find a downtown hotel room so stayed at The Annex. Great funky neighborhood, well appointed room and super comfortable. Easy access to the TYV.

Planning for guests comfort needs attention
Lovely modern stylish and comfortable rooms and great location. However I was dismayed to find out that water was to be turned off on Monday morning ... on Sunday night. Schedule service by the city. 1. I should have been told this when I booked. Perhaps offered a discount for that night, perhaps not. But warned. 2. The hotel should have arranged for water bottles or pitchers for guests and coffee tea in the lobby. Not that hard to do given prior notice. For the price and vibe of this hotel I was disappointed.

Excellent hotel in a great neighborhood
This was the perfect hotel for my stay in Toronto. Very clean, boutique style hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and perfect for a relaxing time. The neighborhood is cool and has lots to do and see. 10/10 would stay here again.

Great hotel in great location
Had a great stay; cozy rooms that are clean, comfortable beds, blackout shades. Entry to your room is via a door lock code, you text your host rather than “check-in”. So close to amazing food and bars, easy in and out from airport and to downtown. Restaurant and bar on lower level are great, definitely try the pizza. Highly recommend to stay here

Cute and clean hotel!
The Annex was great! The room was beautiful, and checking in and out was very easy. The blue tooth speaker in the room was a nice touch and allowed me to listen to music and podcasts just like I would at home. The neighborhood was also cute. I wish I hadn't visited during a polar vortex so that I could have explored it more without my limbs freezing off. My one hiccough was that you have to walk through an alley to get to the main entrance of the hotel. Not a problem, but it would have been helpful to know that beforehand since the first storefront on the property was under renovation. I had a brief moment of panic thinking that the hotel wasn't real! Overall, I would stay again.
