Hi all,

I have received my PR visa and I am planning to land at Toronto by the end of March, 2010 with my family of three members. As I have no relative there and I have never been to Canada before I shall prefer a short stay to a hotel then long term accomodation. I have already checked with studio 6. But could not decide as they have only one hotel at Mississauga. I do not know whether it will be a suitable place for a newcomer to Canada. If you have any experienece about studio 6, please share with us. Alternatively, it will highly be appreciated if you could advise any alternative information about short term (like for a week)accomodation. Your feedback will really help me to take my decision in time.

Thanks and regards.

I will also land on 10 April 2010 and planning to stay at studio 6 as I have found it most suitable costwise and facility wise.

But I am also looking for anything better.

Good Short Stay Option

Hi all,

In the last couple of days I visited the following Short Stay options to check out for my friend's forthcoming landing:

-Motel6
-Studio6
-Derry Guest House
-SafeHomeStay
-Best Western Hotel
-Holiday Inn Express

All r similarly priced (little here-n-there), except the last 2 hotels.

A. I'd suggest everyone to go for Motel6. It's way better organized, value for money than the others.
B. In the Hotels, Holiday Inn Express is better than Best Western.
C. Do not go to Derry Guest House, unless u must want to be in Downtown Toronto.
D. SafeHomeStay is well managed by the Twin Elderly Couples. Its the Cheapest among all. -Not bad too.
E. I've booked my friend for Motel6.

Accomodations and Help for newcomers to Toronto

If you are totally new to Toronto and don't have anyone there, then you will definitely need some help.
Your 1st problem is suitable accommodation in the right area as landlords are not likely to
give a lease without any credit history, references, or a stable job. Temporary housing is very expensive
and a source of stress as 4-8 weeks is too little a time for you to understand a big city like Toronto.

We provide a service that includes the following in the GTA Toronto Area:

airport pickup
arranging accommodation (shared or private)
set up of essential utilities - heat, hydro (electricity), cable, net, phone etc.
orientation to the city - transportation, best places to shop and save etc.
banking, sin card, health card
assistance with your resume and advice about finding a job


If you are interested, please contact me via email with your requirements.
