Hotel prices in the city can be costly whether you're visiting Toronto or just having a weekend staycation. Sometimes renting an apartment or house can be more cost effective and feel more comfortable than a large hotel. We've scoured Airbnb, a community marketplace for people to rent out their personal accommodations, and found these promising short-term rentals in the downtown core for under $100 per night.
? Our first rental is a one bedroom apartment near Yonge and Dundas Street asking $95 per night. The rental includes washer and dryer, TV and internet. The reviews are good and Airbnb host, José, looks like an honest and friendly guy. Minimum stay is two nights plus cleaning fee.
? The next rental is a one bedroom apartment near University Avenue and Dundas Street asking $95 per night.
