About this listing
Welcome to my apartment in the heart of downtown Toronto!
Walk up, typically shared apartment in ideal location. Private room in Downtown Toronto with a Queen Bed. There is access to a bathroom, kitchen, and back patio.
This room is small, as is reflected in the price. Perfect for sleeping/relaxing in after a long day, but not much else! Please remember, this is not a hotel. If you are looking for a a cookie-cutter room, experience, or building, this is not the place for you. What makes this room and apartment special is the imperfections.
Please get in touch with any questions.
Live like a REAL Torontonian for your stay :)
No Smoking Indoors, only on the patio please!
Its a very nice room. The place is in the middle of downtown, so its easy to move around. Sofia was very helpful.
Sofia's place was in an absolutely perfect location. We didn't rent a car on our trip and it was so much better that way. The street car stopped right out the front door and the bike share station was one block away, but we walked everywhere most days anyway. The apartment is small but very clean, and the back door opens up to a rooftop where a few chairs provided a great getaway from the busy streetfront. The weather was beautiful while we were staying, but since our room had no a/c or windows to outside, it was a little stuffy on the day that the temp got into the 30's. This didn't make the stay unpleasant, and I simply propped open the backdoor for awhile and ran the fan Sophia provided, but it is worth noting if you are prone to discomfort in warmer weather. All in all Sophia was a wonderful host who was more than happy to let me check-in a number of hours early and offered plenty of good advice for things to do throughout the City. Her apartment is a great combination of location and charm, and I wouldn't hesitate to tell my friends to stay there.
The bedroom doesn't have a window and the appartement is located on top of a restaurant so it smells like food all the time (especially in the staircase)...
Other than that the location is great, and Sofia seemed nice even though we just talked on the phone.
Sofia was a fantastic host and was more than happy to help us out with anything that we needed. The room we originally ordered was unavailable but we used the other bedroom instead, which was really great. Being close to the Kensington Market and Chinatown makes finding a cool place to eat or drink really easy. I'd be more than happy to stay here again!
Sofia was an excellent host who did everything to make our stay very comfortable even at short notice. We did not get to meet her but communocation was excellent and the flat is located in a great location, seconds away from kensington market. I highly recommend staying here if you are in Toronto.
I stayed at Sofia's place for 50 days. It was a really good time. The location is perfect. Close to the subway station, street cars at the door, good restaurants, and even the AGO is a fifteen minute walk. Kensington Market is a special neighborhood. You can find everything there. The apartment is very charming and cozy. She made me feel so comfortable that I really thought I was at home.
Thank you Sofia. : )
I needed to check in early and Sofia was kind enough to accomodate me and meet me in person. I didn't have the chance to say this in person, so I'll do it here: you're a great host, I enjoyed my stay.
