The Beverley Hotel Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Its like the best designer at IKEA designed a dorm room. Cheap, compact, super cool.

Toronto is not known for affordable hotel rooms.  Particularly close to downtown.  This is a newly regentrified stretch of Queen Street West, close to very cool bars, late night eats and walking to distance to the sights and transportation.  You won’t need a car here, which is good because there is no onsite parking and you will have to rely on what is available on public lots in the area.

The rooms are small.  Like 10 x 10 small, so small that the TV’s are mounted on the ceiling so you can only watch them in bed.  But if you are not in the bed the only other place there is to be is on the toilet or in the shower.  There are no windows except for the end units.  The windows are overrated so don’t bother asking for a room with one unless you want to hear noise from the fire escape all night.

You would think that based on the above that this hotel has the possibility of being uncomfortable.  Not at all!

The design is impeccable and after you put your things away into the built in closets that act as a bed surround you can tuck your suitcases under the bed.  Yes, you cannot lounge in your room but why would you want to?  You are in the middle of one of the most fantastic cities in the world.  And you don’t even have to go that far, head on up to the rooftop bar if you are there in the summer months and have an expertly crafted cocktail while listening to a playlist that made this girl super happy.  The free WI-Fi allowed me to watch Netflix and do anything else I really needed to do via computer.

The restaurant isn’t amazing but isn’t bad either.  But with so many options in the area head out and get a taste of what the United Nations has determined to be the most diverse city in the world.

One of the best things about this hotel is that it is routinely 1/3 to 1/2 of the price of hotels in the area that may have more space but can’t compete with the Beverley for unmitigated hipness.

Notes

Small hotel with limited rooms in a sliver building....meaning only 3 rooms have windows. Don't bother with those. Grab a complimentary coffee, an apple for the road and a paper on your way out for the day. The front desk also has good information about assorted activities, tours and can arrange airport transfers.

Finally someone has figured out a great design to store all my assorted beauty crap when there is no counter space.

The hotel eschews the choice of either expensive or cheesy generic art and instead goes for objets de pop.  These record sleeves changed daily.

The perfect hip little room

This is the perfect little self contained flat pack of a room. All of my stuff is away and my suitcase is under the bed.
