Klemens et Rob ont été très accueillants et chaleureux! Le logement est conforme à la description. L'appartement est propre et magnifiquement décoré, tout comme la chambre, la terrasse est immense, avec une vue superbe. L'appartement est en plein coeur de downtown, à proximité de Chinatown, idéalement situé particulièrement pour ceux qui n'ont pas de véhicule.
Je recommande sans hésiter.
Klemens and Rob were wonderful hosts; they responded to questions immediately, were helpful and very friendly. One couldn't wish for a better airbnb experience, and one shouldn't look further than their place. It is in the perfect location right downtown, with lovely restaurants, shops, and bars within walking distance, and the Art Gallery of Ontario is almost literally next door. The apartment is in a quiet and safe neighbourhood, with a great private bathroom and a wonderful terrace overlooking the splendid Toronto skyline. Stay here!
Our hosts, Rob and Klemens were very welcoming and helpful providing information about the neighborhood. The private room and bath were clean and comfortable (we especially enjoyed the skyline view out the floor to ceiling windows). Rob also went out of his way to arrange for free visitor parking in the building garage (fortunate for us as those space are hard to come by on a Friday afternoon).
This was my first AirBnb experience and what a great one it was! The apartment is in a superb location downtown, minutes from the subway and streetcars, around the corner from the Ontario Art Gallery and right off Queen Street, home to loads of great little shops and restaurants. The room is as in the pictures, comfortable with generous storage space. What you don't see is the truly spectacular view from your room, especially by night, the CN tower directly ahead and the city lights sparkling...unbeatable.
I also really enjoyed having my own bathroom which was literally 2 steps from my room. Rob was a superb host: helpful and considerate, pleasant and welcoming, present but never intrusive.
I have only positive memories from my stay and can highly recommend a stay with Klemens and Rob!
The view from the patio is absolutely stunning and it's very easy to get to all places Toronto from the apt. Klemens wasn't there during my visit but I had the pleasure to meet Rob -- who even spoke Mandarin with me (!). I had a great time. Thank you both very much for everything!
Je suis restée 4 semaines chez Klemens et Robert pour un stage à l'hôpital. Ils ont été sincèrement chaleureux et accueillants. Je me suis tout de suite sentie chez moi dès la première journée. J'avais un horaire atypique et mes hôtes m'a mis très à l'aise avec cela. La chambre est confortable, la salle de bain est magnifique et nous avons accès à une cuisine entièrement équipée.
J'ai eu l'occasion de rencontrer plusieurs personnes formidables avec qui j'ai adoré discuter et rire.
J'espère retourner pour un second séjour !
