The views maybe nice but some of the house cleaning staff were very rude! Along with that the place is very outdated and the floors are filthy!! The layout is nice but update everything from the kitchen to the furniture in there and make the wifi signal a lot stronger! Would I stay in this place again?? Only if I... More

The rooms absoulsty stank of food from the local restaurants and the we just did not enjoy our experience at this hotel. Our room was at the back beside private flats and we got... More

Customer service was horrible, room was NOT cleaned properly for the whole duration. Only one cleaner for the entire building! We had to talk to her twice to get her to change the towels and make the beds. Forget getting her to vacuum, impossible. Toothpicks on the floor, dirty dishes (poor washing job),

I stayed at the English Bay hotel for the weeks in April 2014 while waiting to move in to my apartment. The front desk was always helpful and courteous through the duration of my stay. I had a room with one double bed and one twin, with a small kitchenette. The kitchenette had all the basics you need, fridge, stove,... More

Kind of says it all, brilliant location as we had our children with us and English beach is just across the road. Smells of local restaurants in the lift, run down reception area and hallways, staff pleasant enough but not as welcoming as most Canadians! Beds were comfortable, got used to noisy air con stand alone unit which did keep... More

This hotel was run down. Everything in the room was old, worn and in need up replacement. That said, it was relatively cheap compared to other hotels in Vancouver. It was also in a great location, near Stanley Park and the West Side. The proprietors were friendly and helpful. We checked out at 9am and they kept our bags for... More

We stayed there for one night, we came from another hotel in vicinity. I went there to reserve room in person, resection staff were rude and not... More

Location is great right at English bay. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable and we could even see the sky lit up for sunset over English bay from our room. The room we got had a little kitchen too.

We stayed here for 4 days/3 nights and had a great time. This hotel is in a great location, steps from the bay and surrounded by tasty restaurants. The hotel itself met our needs: warm, clean, and comfortable. But this place is nobody's definition fancy. Pros: cheap, great location, fast Wi-Fi, kitchenette, good water pressure, stocked towels and toiletries. Cons:... More

We arrived in Vancouver at midnight. We had been travelling for 13 hours from Mexico, through the States to Vancouver. We missed the last ferry to Vancouver Island and had to stay in Vancouver til morning. We chose this hotel for its relative proximity to the ferry terminal and the fact that we did not want to pay $200-$300 for... More
