Large Private Room in Downtown

Apartment - Private room · College St, Toronto, ON M5T, Canada

The Space

First of all, I'd like to say a BIG Thank You to all of my previous guests. Over 100 reviews, and counting! :D Read on for more info...

Welcome! Charming walk-up apartment in Downtown Toronto located on top of a landmark Cafe. This is a Heritage Building and is central to so many great neighborhoods; Kensington Market (foodie and vintage haven), Little Italy (great restaurants and night life), China town (cheap eats), U of T (beautiful campus), Queen Street (trendy shopping), as well as the Club and Financial Districts. There are two nearby Laundromats and two 24 hour convenience stores, just a 1 and (maybe) 2 minute walk away. The streetcar stops right outside the building, and it is only a 10 minute ride to both major subway lines. In the summer months, take the streetcar southbound to the Harbourfront... it's only a 20 minute trip! Also, this area is Bike friendly; with bike lanes and ample parking. This place has so much character- High ceilings, and some of the old fixtures and detailing still intact. There is a full washroom and kitchen to share, which leads out to a sunny back patio!

There are Bixis (Bikes) and motor bikes for rent directly across the street- this is a great way to get around the city!

I am offering the living room/guest room for rent in this typically shared 2 bedroom apartment. Your room is private, and extremely large with two big windows facing the main College St. strip, and an amazing view of the CN Tower. There is one queen sized bed and one pull-out couch available. You have your own sitting area and large desk, plus fun nick-nacks to keep your eyes entertained. There is T.V in the room- feel free to watch any DVD you please! I've got lots to choose from. I will provide the latest copy of Now Newspaper (so you can see everything that's going on in the city). Stays lasting over a week will get a complimentary room clean and linen change on the 8th day, if desired. Fresh towels available on request.

Please check back for updates, and feel free to message me with any questions. I can't wait to meet you!

Note: At times, this apartment might be shared with people other than me.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Sofía was a very attentive host, clearly she knows very well what she has been doing. The room was very nice, in the end it's all about taste so I liked the decoration, my girlfriend not so much but it definitely is convenient located and with a great host.

  • Sofia was an awesome host. Why? Because she is so accommodating and honest. The room and apartment is as described and the location is fantastic. I will be staying here the next time I'm in town.

  • Sofia has a really cool story that reflects the living quarters in her apartment! The moment i saw pictures to the moment i stepped inside, i knew this was a place I could see myself living in despite the fact I was only there for a week :(. Sofia was super flexible with our accomodations at last minute and made time out of her busy schedule to come introduce the place to us. Couldnt have picked a better place that was in the centre of EVERYTHING. Super amazing person that reflects her personality into the aprtment. Thank you again!

  • Sofia's place is decorated with style! I felt like walking into one of the Gladstone's art boutique hotel rooms.

    Thanks Sofia!

  • I just had a great time in Toronto, and thanks to Sofia, I also had a great place to stay.

    The location is very convenient to get to work in Downtown or hang out around little italy,chinatown,kensington market, etc.
    With a bixi stand (rentable city bikes) right accross.

    The room , like the pictures has fantastic vintage furniture and collection of interesting reads. The mattress and sofa are new , and comfy.

    The appartment has a full equip kitchen. And an hip feel.
    very friendly and discrete host

    Many cafes, bars, bites around, and conveniance store
    Hanged out with Sofia in little italy.

    Wich as said make it an exciting and convenient location but
    only thing, its facing a busy street, but even tough i am a light sleeper i still had a good sleep and would recommend it.

  • Sofia was a very nice host. Waited for us ona late arrival and made sure the room was set up for us. The apartment is a prtfect location in Kensington market - close to all the shops and restaurants. We didn't have to drive anywhere.

  • I stayed at Sofia's apartment near Kensington Market for 4 nights and had a great time. Sofia was away but her friend Dason greeted me and was always a call away if I needed anything. A super nice guy. Sofia was also a pleasure to deal with and very responsive. Great location.

    September 2012
  • Sofia was away when I visited so I had the apartment to myself. Her apartment is comfortable and quieter than I expected for being on a fairly busy street. I love the Kensington Market neighbourhood with its diverse selection of restaurants, bars and speciality food stores. When I'm next in TO, I'll be checking whether Sofia's place is available.
