"The Grange"
"The Grange is a cheap hotel in a down town area of Toronto. For the price the rooms are good and well equipped. Fridge, stove top, Microwave and free internet access. Plenty of hot water and a good shower. I will use again when working in that part of town."

"Hotel's atmosphere is very groomy and not very clean too. Rooms are very congested and untensils provided are not clean at all. Room heater does not work. Even taxi drivers were not aware of the location and hotel - difficult to locate."

"We had a wonderful stay at the Grange Hotel- we were under alot of pressure and having the people at the Grange looking after us was such a big help. This hotel is near our favourite restaurants in Toronto so that was great and near some of our favourite shopping as well as being near the Art gallery - this made it a wonderful time for us and I am looking forward to staying there when I come back to Toronto."

David from Toronto, ON CA rated Grange Hotel Toronto 8 out of 10 on October 25, 2004 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"A great low budget accommodation. I didn't feel out of place with backpacks and grocery bags. The kitchenette included a mini refrigerator, two burners, and sink. A frying pan and spatula, small cooking pot, kettle, salad bowl, plates, bowls, cups and cutlery for two were also included. I saved the cost of eating out and relaxed in my quiet room. A laundry room is available on each floor. It's the perfect non-frills home-away-from-home for the independent traveller. Modest. Clean. Simple. Inexpensive."

"Not their fault but the hotel was extremely hard to get to because of one way streets. They should send directions with map."
