Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Great unit, fun location, good host, overall great experience for us.

    For guests who are traveling internationally, we did not receive check-in information until landing in Toronto, so I recommend making sure you use a phone that can receive text messages and/or emails in Canada.

  • We had a wonderful time at the apartment! Great neighbourhood with easy access to the rest of the city. Would definitely stay here again! Thanks!

  • Host will only provide access information immediately before arrival for security reasons. This is understandable when the access method is known howevrt communications by Mielle on this could have been better. No contact during stay.
    The apartment is very smartly furnished and clean. Internet good. No TV, microwave or washing machine. The location is superb in a great neighbourhood. Overall recommended.

  • The apartment was exactly as described and just a couple of minutes away from the great Kensington Market.

  • I had a great stay while in Toronto for a conference. The location is perfect,with a bike share station just a block away and Kensington Market right next door. Everything worked very smoothly and the suite was scrupulously neat and clean. Bed was incredibly comfortable. On the other hand, the living area is not for lounging, as there is only one sofa, and no other comfortable chair.

  • Mielle's place is a great quiet place to stay and enjoy Toronto's downton. 10 minutes walk to the Art Gallery of Ontario (Franck Gerry's building in the middle of Chinatown), 1 minute walk to tramway stop, shops, supermarkets, restaurants... Nice and confortable room, kitchen fully equiped ... you'll have everything you need. Definitely recommend. Thanks Mielle.

  • We had an amazing time in Toronto. This apartment is on the door step of Kensington Market and has loads of nice places to eat and drink, all within a 1 min walk from apartment. The apartment itself is very nice and has everything you could need, if you wanted to cook etc. We never met Mielle, but everything was so easy, we didn't have need of her.

    Couldn't recommend this place enough. Will definitely be back!

  • We had a perfect time in Toronto. This apartment is ideally located in the heart of Kensington Market. The location couldn't be any better! The apartment is also very clean and has everything you could need. We cooked a bit and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Thank you!!

  • Lovely flat ideally located in lovely part of Toronto. Everything Mielle says in her description are spot on. The flat was very clean and is a perfect size for a couple. Our daughter also stayed with us as we were visiting our son who lives nearby. There was plenty of space and the sofa bed comfy, however the layout meant that all needed to be waking up at a similar time because the sofa bed is in an very open plan area. Loads of places to eat reasonably nearby and 2 large supermarkets 10 mins walk if you want to self cater. We may be returning to Toronto at some stage in the next 12 months and this airbnb will be top of our list.

I am a gypsy scholar currently in the rainforest in Costa Rica studying biodiversity and eco-tourism. When in Toronto I teach at York University. My passions include yoga, rock-climbing, hoola hooping to groovy music, blues, and exploring tropical paradises. I strive to live an ecologically and socially conscious life, to do no harm, and, as hokey as it may sound, to make the world a better and more just place. The apartments at Kensington Suites reflect the eco-conscious and eclectic nature of the funkiest neighbourhood in the city. Welcome.
