The Good
Guests that stayed at this boutique hotel were quite mixed on their opinions of the property. The guests that liked the hotel typically said good things about the location and the hotel's room rates.

Guests that liked the location of the hotel often mentioned that they were near a subway station or public transit. Some guests also mentioned that there were a lot of restaurants in the area. 

When it came to the hotel's prices several guests were happy with the rates they paid, especially since the hotel was a downtown Toronto property. Many guests called their room price "reasonable" and felt that the hotel offered good value.

In regard to the rooms, guests had pretty mixed opinions however when it came to the question of cleanliness several guests felt as though their rooms were up to par. 

All opinions weighted, the hotel's pub/restaurant is a facility that could be called controversial and opinions were mixed about this aspect of the property. However there were a fair chunk of guests who liked the food, the drinks, and/or the "party" atmosphere.

The Bad
Several guests who stayed at this hotel did not enjoy their stay and one persistent complaint had to do with the lack of peace and quiet.

Numerous guests complained about noise while staying at this hotel and the nearby pub was a big part of that. Many guests complained about the "real struggle" involved with "getting a good night's sleep" and "the drunk crowd" that emerged from the Madison Pub was often finger-pointed. 

One guest explained how the "noise from the bars next door" prevented him from getting much sleep and another guest described a scene where a group of partiers sang "Oh Canada at 2:30am." There were also a fair number of guests who were disturbed by "the rumble" of Toronto's subway. 

The staff did not consistently impress guests as they were often depicted as unhelpful. One guest, for example, claimed a staff member would not call him a cab but rather suggested that he use his in-room phone book to find one and call it himself.

The hotel's breakfast was "nothing fancy" according to some patrons who described a "dreadful" meal that was called "cold," "tasteless," and/or "stale."

Guests that did not like their rooms often said that they were small and occasionally the hotel received criticism for not having an elevator.
