Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Small rooms
  • Some street noise

Bottom Line

The 285-room Bond Place Hotel's sleek, minimalist rooms may be on the small side, but they're thoroughly modern, with big flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, light hardwood floors, and shiny marble bathrooms. The hotel is the Queen's Park and the University District, just north of the Financial District, and within walking distance of popular tourist attractions. But note that features are few -- just an espresso bar and a small fitness center.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Located in the Queen's Park and the University District, blocks away from tourist attractions

Located in the Queen's Park and the University District, the Bond Place Hotel is blocks away from the subway, the Financial District, and numerous tourist attractions in the nearby Entertainment District.

This area is home to one of Canada's top ranking schools, beautiful neo-Gothic buildings, and a tree-dotted park with monuments, footpaths and benches. It's a lovely area to explore by foot, and offers easy access to the rest of the city via public transportation. Bustling pubs and diverse restaurants attract a young crowd, as well as those who work in the legislative buildings housed in the university campus. Some parts of the neighborhood can feel somewhat seedy at night, particularly around Allan Gardens (which the hotel is adjacent to), but the area is not as unsafe as it appears.

  • 10-minute drive to Casa Loma, a Gothic Revival style mansion and museum, or 25 minutes via public transportation

 Bottom Line

The 285-room Bond Place Hotel's sleek, minimalist rooms may be on the small side, but they're thoroughly modern, with big flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, light hardwood floors, and shiny marble bathrooms. The hotel is the Queen's Park and the University District, just north of the Financial District, and within walking distance of popular tourist attractions.
