    The bed is so comfortable and the location is good for shopping.

    The underground parking is terrible, it need very good skill.

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    The location of the hotel is excellent as it is near to the metro and shopping.

    We found that the carpeting in our room and the corridor is in need of replacing. The front desk staff could have been more friendly. We booked a kitchenette and it did not even have a spoon in the drawers.

    Good location - near metro station 2/3 stops from city sights. Great Japanese restaurant on Carlton St on route to metro. Taxi called to take to airport was a limo (normal price)! Leaking WC was fixed by on site maintenance person within 20 minutes.

    Very poor value for money. Room was grubby - dirty fittings & switches, air con unit thick with dust, cigarette burns in carpet, cig burn marks around sink (no smoking room!). Dated decor. No restaurant - small Tim Hortons for breakfast next door (prepare to queue!). Tea making facilities in room were not replenished or cleaned, only powdered milk available. No visible cleaning during stay, crumbs on table & carpet (from breakfast) remained for 3 days. Very slow lifts. Swimming pool closed even though Apr weather was sunny & 15-20C (only open Jun-Aug)!

    Central location, easy walk from downtown Toronto. The staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious.

    Bathrooms need renovation. The hotel restaurant and bar was never open. Not even in the evenings.

  • Couple
    6.2

    Rooms were comfortable and spacious. Tim Horton downstairs very convenient for breakfast. The location is good and close to the city center

    The staff was far from nice to us. We did not get the room we booked so we asked for a change and they got a bit angry at us. The rooms are nice but it is still a bit expensive for what it is.

    I stayed in Toronto Primrose hotel 3 times so far. The reason I keep on going there is the neat room,great location and friendly staff. Everyone there treated me as family, the room had all what I need ( fridge, kettle, ironing table + iron, T.V., Desk .... etc. ) , and the location is just close to everything :) If I am going downtown Toronto once again, I am still choosing Best Western Primrose Hotel.

    Everything was great except for the Fire trucks that kept on passing in the street nearby all day long !! There noise could be annoying for some people. But everything about the Hotel was just great.

    We got very nice city view room enjoyed it and lv to come back

    Staff service was very poor .night time gentlemen didnt say hi hello and taking a cal while checking us in.and we asked fr an extra sheet and never provide.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    I likes the bed. There were cooking options . The location was excellent . The room was clean and contemporary. It was quiet . The staff was friendly and helpful.

    I don't like the entrance off the street, or the fact that the roof top isn't used as a place for guests to relax and enjoy a fantastic city view. I don't like the foyer very much. It is gloomy. It took a long time for the ac to cool the room. I didn't like the fact that the bathroom fan and the light were on the same switch.

  • Single
    8.2

    I loved the comfortable bed and bedding.

    A charge for a breakfast coupon was charged to my bill although no coupon was received. It was sorted in the end....
