Only Fabulous Vibes
Incredible space. Really captures the best parts of the Annex vibe. Like a mature and sophisticated version of our boho 80s Toronto, only much cleaner. Love the contactless check in and check out (though the human staff were fabulous). Loved the tucked away, private vibe. Introvert artist dream destination. We will return.

Great stay but can be noisy
Great stay. Staff was attentive and rooms were modern and had interesting details. Soundproofing was very disappointing so needed to ask to change rooms (could hear people upstairs and the bar downstairs) but staff was very accommodating. Breakfast was excellent.

Great stay
Overall great stay. It is mine second time staying with a friend. Just short walk to metro and many restaurants in the neighborhood to choose from. last stay, we loved the room with two queen size beds but this time only one king bed room was available. The room was not as big and shower was not as nice. Walls are super thin and we heard peple above walking around early in the morning so we were woken up few times. Free breakfast was great and we would definitely stay again. recommend to book higher floor with bigger room for more privacy and good sleep.
