This was my mine and my dad's first trip to Toronto (my dad's first trip out of Europe) and we were very pleased with our room. The view was awesome, we could see the CN Tower from our window which was great for me as I did the Edgewalk - I could even see the hotel from the tower lol....

Two of us stayed here for 3 nights in June. Not fancy....it's a former student residence for the University of Toronto....but functional. Even has a tiny kitchenette. Interesting neighbourhood...on the borders of Kensington Market, China Town and Little Italy....offers a bit of everything. Close to the streetcars and within walking distance of many of Toronto's most interesting sites. Friendly staff...

Thanks for posting your review. I'm glad your stay was satisfactory! The Alexandra Hotel was never a student residence, but it is a somewhat unusual downtown hotel because we're able to accommodate long-term stays thanks to the kitchenettes and laundry facilities.

If you're looking for a clean, quiet room in a decent hotel in downtown Toronto, within easy walking distance of frequent public transit, with a functioning kitchen, all at a cheap price, this is the place to stay. I spent three nights there this month, having driven up to Toronto (the hotel has ample parking and was easy to get...

During a recent convention -when every room in Toronto was sold or was $350 a night - I was sent to the Alexandra by an acquaintance who always stays there. It seemed to be unusual - up a quiet suburban street in an old area of Toronto - nearby Queen Street had many eclectic business, including great restaurants and a...

Thank you for your detailed review. I'd like to make a few clarifications. The Alexandra was never a "self-help retirement facility" - it was just an apartment building before it was converted to a hotel. Also, we are indeed downtown. The Alexandra Hotel is east of Bathurst Street, which is the western edge of the downtown district.

I have been to Toronto twice before and stayed virtually within spitting distance of Dundas Square. For my stay in February 2012, I chose this hotel, because rooms were advertised to have a small pantry. The hotel is located a few stops by streetcar from Dundas Square/Eaton Centre. There are basically three streetcar lines (on Dundas, on Queen and on...

Good review! We don't try to be fancy, we prefer to keep our prices as low as possible.

Thanks for taking the time to review the Alexandra Hotel. It's true the Alexandra Hotel does not offer valet laundry service. We aim to be affordable and convenient and simply don't offer luxury services like valet parking or valet laundry services.

Nice, friendly and comfortable. Located near the China town - about 30 min by walk from city center and Railway station. A lot of places to eat in the neighborhood. The room was not very big but with the kitchen and bathroom. Laundry on the floor. Very friendly and helpful staff. Enjoyed the stay. Can recommend to everyone.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
