We will be travelling to Toronto soon and will be there for 3 full days over Shabbos (Thur night - Sun). It will just be the 2 off us and the little ones cannot make this trip quite yet and we will be busy with things not so interesting for them.
Are there any fully kosher hotels or even better AirB&B spots close to a Chasidish Miniyan and at the same time not too far from downtown/city center?

Definitely no kosher hotels. You won't find a Chassidish minyan in the downtown area. Toronto is huge and the Jewish community is spread out covering a huge distance. You need to pick an area and then look for AirBnB lodging. I'm in Thornhill, which is probably not where you want to be as it's not close to downtown at all - that being said my husband works downtown and it's an easy trip and not too long door to door. There is a frum family here with an Air BnB listing for their basement in Thornhill. I don't know anything in the area further south....maybe someone else will comment

Not sure what kind of Chasidish you're looking for but there is a Bobov shul near Bathurst and Wilson

The Chassidish Community is quite small, there is only Bobov
There is a holiday inn on Dufferin that lots of people stay but not Kosher.
There are Kosher Restaraunts- Milk nhoney, Chicken Nest- fleishig, Tovli takeout- they deliver. They should all have websites, you could order online.

Bathurst and Lawrence a large frum community very close to downtown (it’s 5 min drive further down from Bobov but there are a couple of nice chassidishe shules few blocks of each other in this area) it’s mostly a big mix of litvishe yeshivish and chassidish that daven together. Many kosher restaurants and Jewish stores surround this location

Bathurst and Lawrence is not "very close to downtown".

Yes, there is a kosher hotel in Montreal. Accommodations include buffet breakfast. I would definitely NOT eat in the meat restaurant in the hotel. Next door to the hotel is a dairy kosher restaurant - Pizza Pita. You can get salads, sushi, pizza, sandwiches etc. Hotel is the Ramada on Decarie.

Toronto is huge. The Jewish community can be described as spread out into separate "enclaves" more than an hour's walk from each other. From south to north they are:
Downtown (along Bathurst or Spadina; the "old" Jewish Toronto; think "Kensington Market");
Bathurst and Eglinton;
Bathurst and Lawrence;
Bathurst and Wilson (just a few hundred feet north of Bobov or the Agudah);
Bathurst and Sheppard or west to Faywood/Wilmington (Bathurst Manor area);
Bathurst and Finch (more sparsely than most of the others); and
Bathurst and Steeles or even farther north (Toronto's northern limit; our "North Pole").
