Jarvis House Downtown Toronto B&B

If you're a little person or a fan of getting ripped off, then this is the European-style hostel for you. Upon arrival, I was informed that the room with a normal human-sized bed I booked wasn't available, but my girlfriend and I were expected to climb 4 flights of stairs to a cramped, former attic-space room with furnishings from the Late-Garage Sale Leftovers Era with 2 tiny twin beds. Being a tall, broad man, I informed the innkeeper that we would not be staying one night in the establishment, since no reasonable accommodation was offered. The slumlord seemed to understand that I couldn't spend my short stay in a tiny room with tiny beds, so I thought our business was done.

I discovered the next day that my credit card had been charged the full 3 night rental rate. I returned to Jarvis to confront the innkeeper, where I was informed that the charges would not be reversed, but the room had been rented out in our absence. So, not only did the odd woman get my money, but she suckered someone else into the same trap and received their money, too. If it was about lost revenue, I would have received 2 nights' worth of a refund. It's about ripping people off. DO NOT FALL VICTIM TO THIS SCAM.

Booking.com and Priceline seem to think that it's my fault that I can't fit into a twin bed or that I didn't conduct their due diligence prior to my trip and have failed to take action on my behalf, though Jarvis House did offer a credit towards a future stay. Yeah, I'll jump right on that....

Positives: None.

Negatives: My credit card was charged the full amount, even though I didn't stay there and the tiny room for tiny people was rented out anyway.
