The room is very small, the bathroom is bigger than the room for example. There was molt under the ridge of the refrigerator and though a coffee machine was available, you couldn't place it anywhere in the room to actually use it. Furthermore, there was NO airconditioning. Even in my room there was an instruction sheet that said I couldn't use the airco together with something else because it would overcharge the circuits in the old building, so I was pretty sure airco had to be there. However when I asked about it they said it was 'not there and probably removed last week'....very uncomfortable, even more so as the windows could not open and the building is so old so it gets very warm, smelly and musky... I had to turn on the air filter in the bathroom to get some fresh air into the room. The wifi reception is very slow at best. and wifi often not available at all. But the biggest problem is that the reception is only open from 11am to 7pm. After or before that time, there is no one there. You have to call a local number instead, which most often goes to voicemail and it's very expensive to call that number if you are a tourist. I had to call several times because I wanted to check out but I couldn't because there was no one there. Also, after 7pm they lock the front door and you can only get in with a code, but no one told me that and they didn't give me the code either! So there I was, late at night after a hard day's work, locked out of the guesthouse, trying to call a local number which went to voicemail. It was really a very unpleasant experience. Finally another guest arrived who did have the code so he could let us in. It was just so unprofessional. Sleeping is also hard because there are big gaps between the doors and the walls and the lights in the hallway are always on, which results into a lot of light in your room. As it is an old house, it can be quite noisy too.
Location was fine, near downtown Toronto and near subway station. Also, a great supermarket is just five minutes away. Bed and bathroom were cleaned nicely every day.
