I can't rate less than 5 points of Alma Beach Suite because all things around this suite are excellent! Just 20 mins to Downtown, UBC...etc. Nearby to shoppers, Safeway and whole food market... Furthermore, all cooking and eating utensils, excellent living facilities are available!

This place is one in a million! So warm and inviting, spacious and comfortable, peaceful and pretty. From my perfectly appointed suite I was able to get downtown in minutes by public transit, and yet I am only a couple of steps from the beach. Vancouver itself is wonderful in that respect, and this perfectly located boutique hotel is truly... More

Alma Beach Manor is exceptional. I spent one month in Vancouver on a busy schedule and found that I had everything I needed here. Firstly, the location is great. Situated in a pleasant part of town, Alma Beach Manor is within a short walking distance from the beach and the main shops of Kitsilano, but is also just an 8-10... More

Alma Beach has fast become my favourite place to stay in Vancouver, for work and for pleasure. Located in the Kitsilano/Point Grey area, these fully furnished suites are superb for a short or long stay, with easy access to the downtown core. Our apartment had been recently refurbished with a new bathroom and full kitchen - great for preparing meals,... More

We overnighted at Alma Beach again, December 5, what a joy. Great location and to wake up to and be able to relax in your room with a cup of coffee and a full kitchen - fantastic. No better place to stay when in downtown Vancouver.

The location in the trendy 4th ave is ideal. It's close to the beach and the university. The suites have been tastefully decorated and upgraded. First class all the way? The checkin process is wonderful and the attention to detail was lovely. They even left a starter basket of goodies to enjoy you first morning breakfast
