I was hesitant to stay here based on the photos. The location was wonderful, two blocks from English Bay. Both Denman and Davie had many places to eat close by. The parking was first come and was very tight, do not plan on if you have a big car. Room was comfortable, did not need the small kitchen. No air... More

One of my fatal error was not to check trip advisor to let me know how users rated this hotel prior to going to booking the place and going to Vancouver. The location is definitely great but the hotel is not. The room we stayed in had the floor air conditioner and had a tube going out of the window.... More

Service is the hotel was good, but nothing special. Very friendly staff though. Rooms weren't bad at all. It was very spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was a equipped with a stove, sink, microwave, coffee machine, crockery and cutlery, and a big fridge and freezer. Rooms could be cleaned better. We noticed the carpet wasn't cleaned...

This hotel is extremely reasonable and the location cannot be beat! Right by English Bay so an easy walk to the Granville Island ferry and all the attractions of Stanley Park. I have rarely seen as many or such a variety of restaurants as are on the neighboring streets. It would be impossible not to find something to your taste.... More

First off, not a glamorous hotel in any way but our room was very comfortable, clean and in a good location and within easy walking or cycling distance of lots of Vancouver attractions. Value for money. We would consider staying here again.

I booked this hotel in order to be close to English Bay for the fireworks festival. In that respect, this hotel met the requirements. In every other aspect, it did not. We arrived at the hotel and tried to park in the upper garage, but were unable to get in. When I went to talk to the man at the... More

Was pleasantly surprised with this hotel, excellent location (near davie street, which has good restaurants and nightlife) and our room was clean and spacious. Considering what we paid for our room we would happily stay again.

The hotel lobby looks like an old Las Vegas strip joint, my room smelled bad as soon as I unlocked the door, and the whole building is very run down. I had to wash the bathroom & kitchenette floors before I would take my shoes off. There was hair all over the bathroom, yellow spots on the walls and mud... More

Unfortunately we booked on "no car" day and several blocks of Denman Street were blocked off. A hotel that cared about customer service would have let us know this at the time of booking but nonetheless we found our way to the back alley where we were faced with one of the most terrifying entrances to a parking garage I...

The location can't be beat - except perhaps by the Sylvia which is - and the price is certainly good, but everything else about this hotel is horrible. The 'quiet' rooms at the back look out over a roof littered with needles and trash and the front rooms are very noisy. Both hallways and rooms have an unbelievably bad smell,... More
