    Great value in a good area

    Excellent facilities in the room - 2 large comfy beds and 4 lovely squishy pillows per bed. Extras including coffee machine and microwave. The best shower I think I have ever encountered. All spotlessly clean. Convenient location- do take a walk into Cabbage Town, about half a mile along the street - really eclectic housing and interesting area.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Room was huge, with a comfortable seating area and a big bed. So plenty of room to chill out at the end of our 3 week trip. Very busy area and convenient for College subway stop. The incuded breakfast is from a food outlet, part of a chain. The breakfast items are maybe not to everyone's taste.

  • 8.0.Very good

    St James is in a good spot just off Yonge so easy to get around. About a half hour leisurely walk to places like CN Tower, Ripleys and the waterfront. Our first room had a plumbing problem and we were moved to a 2nd room unfortunately the 2nd room although larger wasn’t as nice as the first on our last day a different guy on reception said the first room issue could have been fixed without us having to move which was very disappointing to hear obviously too late to move back. Most of the staff we interacted with were friendly and helpful. Complimentary breakfast at the in hotel Freshii was a plus. Rooms quite dark in the evenings ceiling lights only in the door area I moved a lamp to give more light in the room but it was moved back by housekeeping.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Hotel centrally located, very friendly staff and clean. Our only issue was the breakfast available. The Freshii attached has a very limited menu which is not suitable for young children. We had to go out 2 out of 3 mornings to find something more appropriate.

    Good hotel

    The staff were great very polite , and gave us great advice. The location was just outside the city centre, but that was fine. We had to complain that the siding door was faulty but other than that the room was fine. The only down side was that although we could make coffee there was no facility to make a proper cup of tea, Overall I would recommend the hotel

    Best little hotel I ever stayed

    They are always accommodating. I am disabled and require special attention. I don't want to even have to consider another spot. Staff are excellent, very friendly. I'm sure we will be back again.
