This condo in an old-school low-rise building is on a quiet street in the heart of Toronto. A perfect locale for business travellers, with both subway lines a block away, Rosedale, Yorkville and the Gay Village are also at your doorstep.

The space

In the 1950s, this was a hotel, and in the 1990s it was restored and renovated. The character and charm of this building resembles the style of the New York apartment life.

The one-bedroom condo, 745 sq ft, is a corner unit, so there's lots of light throughout the day. The living/dining area is divided into three separate areas — lounge area, dining and work space. The galley kitchen, in a separate room, has lots of room for prep and includes a dishwasher and a Tassimo, with a well-stocked cupboard of pods for you to indulge in. Laundry facilities are beside the kitchen, and include a washer/dryer for your use.

The bedroom, with a queen bed, is big and serene, and comes with a (seriously) spacious en-suite bathroom. There's also a separate two-piece powder room in the front entrance.

Guest access

The building is small, only eight floors with 55 units, and the space is very private. You have access to a small gym facility as well as a roof-top patio and a courtyard adjacent to the front entrance. In the unit itself, there's wifi and Apple TV, and a landline with free long-distance calls in Canada.

Interaction with guests

I live in the unit, but will be offsite during your stay. That said, as a born-and-bred Torontonian, as well as the former editor of the Toronto section of one of our national newspapers, my knowledge of the city is vast and I love to help people discover the real Toronto so would be happy to help you with tips, build an itinerary or show you around for an evening.

Other things to note

Please note, this apartment does NOT have a microwave.

If you're musically inclined, I have a piano, ukulele and a tambourine, which are at your disposal as well. :)

We loved Maryam's place- the location was fantastic, she was easy to communicate with, and the space was beautiful. I'd definitely stay again. Thank you!

I am a regular AirBnb user and this was one of my best experiences ever! Maryam was exceptionally clear and responsive in her communications. The apartment looks better than the photos: cozy, stylish, comfortable and full of lovely books and films. We also really appreciated having two bathrooms! The neighborhood is fun and the condo is just removed enough that it's quiet at night. It's also close to public transportation and within walking distance of many other cool neighborhoods and cultural activities. We really could not have had a better experience.

Maryam's place was wonderful. The space is bigger than the photos let on! The location is exceptional. The decor is charming. And Maryam herself was extremely responsive and kind enough to let us check in when we arrived a bit early. I would definitely recommend her apartment!

Maryam definitely made my wife and I feel welcome as first time visitors to Toronto. We appreciated how flexible she was with our travel plans. She also went out of her way to provide many recommendations for things to do and places to eat, as well as the best ways to get around Toronto. Her home was so comfortable, we will absolutely try to book a stay here again the next time we are in Toronto.

Maryam made the check in/out process very easy for us- the keys were available at the time we arranged and she had helpful information about the condo and the neighborhood waiting for us! The apartment was colorful and cool and in a great location. We had a great stay!

Maryam has a wonderful place! It's just as nice as her posted pictures. Maryam is well versed in the city of Toronto and can offer great advice on places to go, things to see, and how to get around. This was my first airbnb experience and Maryam has definitely sold me on the concept! Highly recommended!

Hi! I spent much of 2013 travelling around the world (21 countries!) and using Airbnb as I moved from place to place. I met the kindest, most interesting people and got to see the cities I visited, from London to Istanbul to Cape Town, through local eyes.

I want to be able to provide the same experience to those visiting Toronto or Trogir, Croatia. If you have any questions about my apartments, or the cities in general, please send me a note. I'm happy to help.
