For tourists unfamiliar to Toronto, you might be put off by its location. It is near some housing developments in a shadier part of the city. However, you are steps away from the main streets where everything is happening! It is safer than you first feel when you arrive.
Pros: Price ($60/night from teambuy.ca)
To be honest, my friend and I were a bit uncomfortable when we arrived at Studio 6. Two men followed us into the foyer (which is not the lobby and is not attended) and asked us if we were staying there. The concierge came out from the side to get us and we all went to a separate room that is the lobby/office. We felt the concierge should have spoken with the two men first, as they were not guests, but he proceeded to check us in, in the presence of the two men. We had to ask him to write down our room number so that he would not tell the two strangers where we would be staying. Maybe because we were two girls in an unfamiliar neighbourhood we were being paranoid; that said, we should be!
The room we stayed in was very clean. As Studio 6 used to be The Grange, it was recently renovated so everything was still new-looking. The only thing that didn't look very new was the linen. There were some stains in the pillowcase and bedsheets. (Tip: Bring your own pillowcase or a towel to throw over your pillow.) However, it is a budget hotel so your expectations should be realistic upon booking.
P. S. Free WIFI! ($20 for parking)
