Historical Traveler Reviews Bond Place Hotel Toronto
Alone in T.O. !
Stayed on my own here whilst visiting my daughter who lives in Toronto.
Perfect location, a block from the subway (Dundas) and the great shopping mall, the Eaton Centre! Felt safe and comfortable -great value for money. Lived in the suburbs of Toronto previously for 20 years - it was great to stay right downtown, walk to all the major sights and enjoy being a tourist. No problems in rebooking the Bond Place on my next visit.
A good night spoiled
I was all ready to write a glowing report on Bond Place because of its location near downtown, good staff, fine room and value for money. Then the morning stifled it!! I was woken at 7.30am by the noise of the building site on one side of the hotel - I imagine the rooms on the other sides of the place would be fine - and the horrendous noise of the music being played by the workers - it was absolutely horrible.
Maybe by the time you try it, the work might be finished, but I wouldn't be in a hurry to go back while its still going on. Definitely a good hotel spoiled.
Surprisingly Good, Great Value
I have stayed at non-chain, low price places like the Bond Place in many cities, and by far it was the best value. As others have said, it's in a great location, and the rooms are very clean. Hot shower with great water pressure in the bathroom. Cable TV with a number of channels, including news and weather. I really felt like telling them I'd have paid much more to stay there. I feared the worst when I made my reservation, but if you're traveling on a tight budget, don't even consider anywhere else this is the place. It's not just cheap it's really fairly good.
Great price, some rude staff
I was amazed at the location which was excellent for the price. There were a couple of faults that should be very easy to correct. Firstly, the smoking floors smelt terrible, corridors and rooms. I know that smoking is a dirty habit etc, but just because I smoke does not mean I have totally lost my sense of smell. Secondly, one female member of staff was unfriendly to the point of being rude. Apart from these problems the hotel was good and excellent value.
Great Location and Great Value
Just got back from a 3 night stay at the Bond Place Hotel. It was an excellent location, very close to Eaton Centre, Subway, Double Decker City tour, Hard Rock Cafe. The rooms were very clean and the maid service was good. This hotel is a great value overall. I might avoid the hotel restaurant, we ate breakfast there and it was not so great.
Parking is OK, a bit expensive but you can just leave the car and take the Subway or get a city tour and jump on and off the double decker bus for 2 full days. Overall I would definitely stay here again. You won't find a more reasonable hotel with a perfect location for most things.
Toronto is a beautiful city to visit and the Bond Place Hotel made it even better.
Clean rooms good location
Stayed at the Bond Place Hotel from July 7th - 11th. Got a great rate, and for the rate we paid, the hotel was great. The rooms are small but clean, we were even able to change from a room with a queen and a double to a room with a double and 2 twins, which was great because we had our teenaged kids with us. Continental breakfast was juice, coffee, toast and a croissant, so not gourmet, but got us by and was included in the price. The location was perfect, right off of Younge street on Dundas, but at night, Dundas felt a little unsafe, although we had no real problems. If you can get this hotel for under $100 Cdn/night, then it's worth it. Just a tip about parking if you have a rental car. There is a parking lot that the hotel recommends which is a flat rate of $12 per day, but you can also park on the street the hotel is on between 9pm and 8am for free. We were never back at the hotel before 9pm, and were ready to go at 8am, so it worked out perfect for us. One more thing, taxi from airport to hotel is $39 Cdn. flat rate.
Just don't get a room next to the outside airconditioner!
Two night at the Bond hotel and the first night was a complete right off!!! We had awful room with outside window right next to LOUD air conditioning unit. My father and i did not sleep a wink. The next day we changed rooms - a nice room...
The rooms are simple, clean - quite ok for the price. The hotel is central - good spot. Area a WEE bit dodgy maybe at night.
The staff on the front desk friendly in the morning - but the night staff not the best!!
I may stay here again - although I think I would also look at any other options.
Great Location and Staff
The bond place hotel has a great location, great staff and was very clean. Overall I was very pleased with the hotel. A nice bonus is a free continental breakfast every morning with enough food to tie you over till lunch. I would stay at the Bond Place hotel anytime. Two Thumbs Up!
My wife and I have just returned to the U.K following a 7night stay at the Bond Hotel,Toronto. We found the Hotel excellent value for money and revelled in the views of the city centre from our 17th floor room. The hotel itself was clean and tidy and our room was serviced to a high standard on a daily basis. The staff were warm and friendly (but we found most Canadians to be like this). The in house restaurant was perfect for breakfast and the Hotels overall location served us well, as a 3minute stroll took us to the Eaton Centre shopping mall giving us access to the PATH, subway etc. It would appear that the Canadian Hotel star rating system must be far harsher than our own as to my mind this hotel deserved a far higher rating than 3star. Our own U.K hotels would do well replicate the standards of The Bond place; yes even the 4 and 5 star ones
Excellent value for money
I have recently come back from holiday in Toronto. I live in Scotland so i was very excited about this trip. For six nights staying at the Bond Place, flights included it came to £327. When we arrived i was delighted about the hotel room that we were given.It was quite basic but it was clean and comfotable a bit like a quality inn type hotel. It was also in an excellent location as it was practely next door to the Eaton Center and a 20 in walk from the CN Tower. I would definatly go back in the future and reccomend it to people who dont want to wont to fork out alot of money.
