We lived near the Prince Alfred Hotel on Bay Street and it was very noisy on Friday and Saturday nights at closing time. However, other times it's not too bad. A bit of traffic but you got used to it. It was worth it to be in such a great location. A great mix of people and a nice community feel. Didn't find it tacky at all!

Sounds like a great place, and even worth a little inconvenience to live in such a great area!

Bit noisey for me - buses and trucks turning off to the Port off Graham St. Higher up is better, but further from the beach....

Totally understand what you mean. If you could make it slightly quieter it would be ideal. Would the noise be a deal breaker for living there?

Great for lifestyle- it is the best place for people who want a mix between CBD living and the beach. Only concern with Bay street is how busy it is and it does some a little tacky.
