You will have a private room in a unique penthouse 3 floor condo with a fantastic rooftop patio in the middle of it all. Steps away from King St restaurants and bars, to Queen Street, Chinatown and Kensington Market! No better place to spend your time in Toronto!

-Apple TV
-Sonos Music Player

Interaction with Guests

I am very clean and take care of the place. I'm also not at home very often on weekdays as I manage a tech startup a few blocks north but also love to show new comers around the hidden gems of Toronto.

The Neighborhood

The house is in a prime location, steps away from Toronto's newest and best dining on King Street (2 minute walk south), and tons of cool bars and indie music venues (2 minute walk north), and a short walk to the entertainment district, Kensington Market, or Chinatown (all 5-10 minute walks). You are also very close to Trinity Bellwoods Park, Art Gallery of Ontario, Roy Thompson Hall, CN tower, Rogers Centre or Air Canada Centre, Fashion District, Theatre District & City Centre, all within 10 minutes by public transit or on foot.

Getting around

You will be right next to the Queen Streetcar as well as the Spadina streetcar so it's easy to get around to anywhere you might want to go!

Other Things to Note

Coffee, Tea, and basic breakfast is available to you through the length of your stay and you're free to use the kitchen if you need.

Having moved almost every year for the past 7 years all around Toronto, this is by far my favourite place and don't see myself moving anytime soon. You will love your stay here!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Bijan's apartment was fantastic. The room was a great size for a couple and the location was perfect for sightseeing Toronto. We enjoyed having a few beers up on the rooftop which provides stunning views. Thanks again Bijan - hope our paths cross again soon.

  • Bijan was a great host! Could not have asked for a better host. Told us about all the best foods and bars in the area. We did not even leave the general area during our stay because the location was so good. Home was clean and had a ton of amenities. If i ever stay in toronto again I would book the same place.

  • This apartment is great! It's clean, spacious, quiet, and tasteful, in a fantastic part of town. Right off Spadina, one of the main streets in Toronto, I had easy access to my event at the Metro Toronto Convention Center as well as the University of Toronto and Kensington Market. Bijan is a great host, who was incredibly helpful with local information and advice when I needed it. I would definitely stay here again during future Toronto trips.

  • Bijan was a great host! We arrived past midnight to his apartment and he was very understanding and helpful in getting us checked-in. His apartment is really nice and right in the middle of everything in Downtown Toronto. This will definitely be my go to place next time I'm in Toronto. Thanks Bijan!

  • We loved our stay at Bijan's place! It is very well located if you want to explore Toronto by foot or using public transports. The room was clean and comfortable and the whole flat is warm and welcoming. The highlight is definitely the host himself, Bijan is a very friendly and easy-going person - he welcomed us with tea and cookies, gave us the best insider tips for food and nightlife in Toronto and he also baked some amazing Banana Bread. All-around, a 5-star AirBnB experience - we hope to be back soon!

  • The place is clean, well lit and in a great neighbourhood in Toronto. Centrally located downtown, I couldn't have picked a better spot. I stayed with Bijan for a week while starting a new job and apartment hunting. Bijan is a great host. He's a young tech entrepreneur and we had quite a few conversations about technology. I even enjoyed a nice dinner with his family for Persian New Year (Nowruz). Overall would recommend A+.

  • Bijan is a wonderful host. He was quick to respond to all my questions before I arrived, had great recommendations, and found answers to anything I needed during my stay. I was a solo traveler that stayed a week at his apartment; I was really pleased to have a few nice conversations with Bijan as well. The apartment is in an excellent location for either walking or public transport. It is a very comfortable place and you will find it exactly as pictured. The rooftop terrace is a great bonus!

  • Bijan is a fantastic host! He's kind, courteous, accommodating, and an all around great guy. His apartment is gorgeous, with plenty of space for relaxing and cooking. Staying with Bijan was a thoroughly positive experience and I would recommend him highly to anybody.

  • Although I didn’t get to actually meet Bijan, he was a great host. His place is awesome – spacious and simply decorated. Sadly, I was there during the winter, but can only imagine that his rooftop patio would have been fantastic and offer amazing views. His apartment is also in a great location – a great area downtown with cool shops, bars and restaurants, close to China Town, Kensington Market and the streets cars. His place was super clean and he offered fresh coffee and breakfast, and access to laundry. He was also very accommodating – I stayed at Bijan’s place because my own apartment was flooded, and he even provided me with extra storage space and drawers for my belongings. I definitely recommend staying here.

After moving every year for nearly 7 years, I've finally found a place to call home and I hope to share my enjoyment of it and my area in Toronto with you! I really enjoy playing host and making sure any traveller really gets to see the best of Toronto and having reviewed almost 300 businesses in Toronto ((website hidden)_details?userid=JVbqMyicxGWlEVPpyo6gpQ) I feel like I can guide most towards what they're looking to get out of their trip :) I'm a Tech Startup Founder and have lived in Toronto for about 18 years. I'm a huge soccer fan and a massive coffee addict (luckily I live near 5 or 6 of Toronto's best coffee shops!).
