If only there were more small, affordable, family-run hotels in Toronto like the Baldwin. This charming, friendly bed-and-breakfast is located on the equally charming Baldwin Street, steps away from trendy Queen West, Kensington, and Chinatown. It’s a historic, converted house with six rooms that are well-cared for; bathrooms are shared, and there’s a homey eat-in kitchen and a small garden in back. Reservations are a must. The owners, Roger and Tess, have four other inns scattered about the downtown, each with its own charms, and some equipped for long stays.
