We were dismayed to view this Hotel on arrival as the condition of the exterior had deteriorated markedly from the published photographs. It also has to be said that the interior requires redecoration and refurbishment. However, our apartment was relatively spacious and clean and the Lady who serviced our apartment was very helpful and produced items missing from the Kitchen... More

if you are not fussy this is the place for you. perfect location. kitchen is basic and functional- groceries stores around the corner and starbucks next door.... no balconies, limited air conditioning. it's all a bit tired but you should be outside anyway! so if you are wanting to save money and explore vancouver this may be your solution.

First of all, the location of this hotel is really attractive. It is located next to English Bay, and if you are lucky, you might get a really nice view from the room. The price is pretty reasonable for the price. Service is good. Depending on room types, the room I stayed in had a kitchen and a dining table... More

It was perfect for a three day stay in the city. We were able to catch a cab or a bus to the major shopping district with no issue. Furniture The rooms were definitely a bit dated, but the beds were comfortable enough and the furniture did it's job perfectly. There was plenty of storage if you needed to unpack... More

If you're low-maintenance, this hotel is totally fine. The location is perfect. English Bay is unbelievable. This hotel is tacky, but it is clean. The rooms are large. It's hideously decorated. But like I said, it's clean, and you won't find a better deal in terms of location. Right beside Stanley Park and the beach... amazing.

If your not looking for something fancy, not clean, you've come to the right place! Our room had a great view of English Bay but just don't look at the room! There were hand prints over the headboard of the bed! The kitchen floor had a huge red stains all over it. One of the two kitchen chairs was bend... More

For us it was great! Spent 3 nights and had a kitchen and bathroom with plenty of closet space. To have that and to be in the "West End" for the price.... Wow couldn't be happier with this hotel. Sure it needs a freshen up with paint and carpeting but over all a good value!

We are so happy to have found this hotel! The price, location and staff are great! We are very frequent Vancouver visitors, and love the Sylvia Hotel, but it was booked. We now have another favorite Vancouver hotel. Great room, very pleasant staff, incomparable value! We will be back!

I see a lot of negative reviews which makes me think if I actually went to an entirely different hotel : ) Obviously, this place is far from fancy but we had all the amenities that we needed. We booked through Expedia and got a great deal. If you are a stickler for squeaky clean surfaces, then book some place... More

I stayed here for one night last Saturday night because I was on a last minute trip and the only hotels left were more than $300/night. If you want luxury this is not the hotel for you, but if you are only staying a night or two and don't plan to stay in the room much and are on a... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
