Alex's home was just as the pictures and perfect for my trip. My boyfriend and I really just needed a place to sleep and shower as we planned to spend most of our days being tourist. We didn't need much and didn't have to bother Alex after check in. I did need to find a place to print a permit for street parking and Alex helped with that. His home was clean and spacious. The area was perfect.

My parents visited from india and were looking for a central, quiet location to stay in. Alex's place was great- close to groceries, restaurants, and a mall. He was very responsive and the place was very clean.

Alex has a lovely, orderly apartment with an excellent location. It's worth noting that it's at the back of the building so you don't hear any of the traffic on College. A comfortable bed is a big plus for me, and this one was great. Alex was running a bit late for our check-in, but he communicated promptly, and getting in and out of the apartment was very easy. Highly recommended.

My mother and I came to visit family in Toronto. The location of Alex's apartment was great - it was a 5 minute walk to our family's home, and for visitors, it is located right on College St. in downtown Little Italy so you have easy access to tons of restaurants and bars. The apartment was, overall, nice, nicely decorated, and spacious; however, the apartment did not appear to have been cleaned prior to our arrival. There was an orange seed on the floor, a clump of blonde hair in the living room (we have dark hair), spots of urine on the toilet seat, hair all over the bathroom sink and floor, a dirty kitchen sink. I understand that this is someone's home that we are staying in, and I am not usually one to be so particular, but it grossed me out a little. The bed was a very, very firm, foam mattress.. some might prefer this, but both my mother and I found it very difficult to sleep on it. Alex provided us with thorough instructions on how to check in, and even included a map; however, the check in process was a little difficult due to the fact that there was construction right outside of the front entrance, which he had neglected to inform us about. We drove, so we had to find out which building was his from the back alley. Thankfully there is a side door entrance that made it easier for us to unload everything from the car to the apartment. The construction had been going on for at least one month prior to our arrival (my cousin lives two blocks away and told me). I understand that Alex has no control over this - but he should have informed us prior to booking. We stayed for one week and the workers began jack hammering at 7:30 AM, 4 out of the 7 days. Again, the location of Alex's apartment was perfect for us, and would be great for those visiting Toronto.

Response from Alex:
Thanks for your feedback, Jenn. I apologize if you did not feel the apartment was clean upon your arrival. I had a cleaner in the day before you arrived and did not have a chance to double check that they did a good job, and for that I take full blame. Looks like I will be looking for a new service. Regarding the construction. While crews had been updating the sidewalks along College St for some time, they were going block by block and did not start construction in front of the apartment until the day that you arrived. I had no information that this work would going on and, had I been aware, would have shared that information upon your booking request. It seems it was very unfortunate timing and I by no means attempted to keep anything from you. I had also indicated the locations of both the front and rear entrances on the building with the provided map as I know it can be a little confusing to find your way around. Perhaps I will include pictures to further help future guests find their way. Again, thank you for your feedback!

I was in town for a few days with the girlfriend and Alex's place was perfect for our stay. The location in Little Portugal was lively and not too far away from the city center to hit all of the touristy spots. Alex also provided very convenient information about obtaining a parking permit provided by the city of Toronto that turned out to be a great bargain. Great overall experience.
