Our place is a little pied-a-terre right in the centre of Queen West. In a great location - walking distance to Trinity-Bellwoods park, great shopping, amazing restaurants and it's a few minutes away from lots of transit options.
It's a basement.
There are some low spots in the apartment -- if you're much over 5'10" -- it may not be for you.
But in terms of location - it can't be beat in the city.
