In the Heart of the City

I generally take 'pilgrimages' to the city a few times a year, to take in a concert, go to the museum visit the AGO or just to get out of my familiar surroundings. This visit was just an overnighter as I was catching a train bound for New York the next morning, and AMTRAK only runs once a day out of Toronto. I stayed at The Rex this time, after …

We had a nice night's rest in our VIP apartment at the Rex Motel. In the morning, we had a light breakfast in the room (yogurt, granola, and banana). When checking out, we had a very pleasant conversation with the owners, Emily and Simeon Ivanov. They told us a bit about how they bought this motel, fixed it up, and furnished the rooms (each in a …

After our arrival, the owner (the husband of the husband and wife ownership) greeted us and showed us to our "room", the "VIP Apartment" located below their living quarters and with a door on the backside (from the parking lot) of the motel (it has the appearance of what we know as a non-chain, one-story roadside motel where you park right in front …

    Great Place, Great Location, Great Owners

    We loved this place and the owners! They were so helpful and accommodating. We called for a room late in the same day we wanted to stay there. They were booked up but called us back and offered to let us use their "VIP Apartment" below their living quarters (adjoining the motel) at the Single Queen Room Rate, which they normally only make available to friends and family. This apartment was just that -- not a "normal" motel room -- it had a bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom (all small but all there). It was furnished and decorated very "smartly" with a Middle Eastern theme.

    We had a very nice conversation with the owners in the morning before we left. They told us about how they bought the motel with no previous experience in such things, have slowly put their own "signature" on it (decorating each of the 17 rooms, plus the VIP apartment) in the motif of a country they've visited. We wish them all the best in this endeavor -- they have apparently come so far with this little motel and made it an oh-so-charming place to stay at an oh-so-attractive price.

    The rooms at The Rex are small, approx. 120 sq ft and they make great use of the space. The furnishings are simple and classy, the bed is comfortable and the location is top notch.

    The rooms are facing Queen West, smack dab in the middle of The Entertainment District and The Rex itself is a restaurant/pub that realizes its true character as a live jazz & blues bar by night.

    The food is good and while there is no coffee maker in the room, you are treated to a complimentary breakfast in the morning. The owner is very gracious and the service from various members of his staff, is top notch.

    There is really no reason no to stay at The Rex.
