Rockcliffe-Smythe is Toronto's hottest neighbourhood according to Airbnb

What's the hottest neighbourhood in Toronto? It's not West Queen West, Dundas West or even King West, at least according to Airbnb. Apparently it's Rockliffe-Smythe.

This neighbourhood, located by the Stockyards shopping mall, ranks number six on Airbnb's hottest neighbourhoods of the world list, behind Chutes-Lavie in Marseille, France. Milneburg, New Orleans takes the top spot.

As CondĂŠ Nast Traveler reports, Airbnb describes Rockliffe-Smythe by saying, "Greenery isn't just Pantone's color of the year for 2017, it's the main event in Toronto's Rockcliffe Smythe."

"The area, which saw 497 percent more bookings in 2016, is a family-friendly residential area with large green spaces, like the Black Creek Valley, featuring running and walking trails throughout."

On Airbnb, the neighbourhood boasts numerous listings, including cozy-looking rooms and spacious lofts.
