The Toronto hotels recommended below have been carefully selected for their overall value (price versus rating and user reviews) and their close proximity to one or more subway stations. Each hotel listed has good to excellent reviews from the majority of users. Some selections are also based on our personal experience. We have recommended hotels with a range of prices and ratings from 2-star all the way up to 5-star — something for everyone.
Keep in mind downtown Toronto is well serviced by bus and streetcar routes so there are many more good hotels with good access to public transit, however, choosing a hotel near the subway is the most convenient option for accessing the transit system and getting to different parts of the city with ease.
