About this listing
A downtown location doesn't get any better than this, yet our place is very quiet. You can either take the public transit, bike share, walk or if you need to drive, zipcar and car2go are just across the street.
This guest room is part of a two-bedroom plus den apartment that boasts one of downtown Toronto’s largest private terraces. The apartment is situated over a residential courtyard, so there’s no traffic noise and yet we are right in the middle of downtown Toronto.
The apartment features:
1250 sf of living space.
An 800 square-foot private terrace offering unobstructed south- and west-facing views of downtown Toronto. From the terrace you will enjoy an amazing view of the CN tower, the OCAD building and great sunsets. The terrace has an electric barbeque, which guests are free to use.
Antique furnishings from China and Indonesia in the living room and den, which were recently featured in Apartment Therapy.
A private guest bathroom with an upgraded glass shower enclosure.
A spacious, open-plan kitchen.
Free wi-fi access throughout the apartment and terrace
Access to a fitness room within the building, with elliptical machines, running machines, free weights, and a universal set. The building also has a hot tub.
THE GUEST ROOM
