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

Dear Steve H, We are really delighted you enjoyed your stay at Alma Beach Manor again. This time for pleasure during the Holiday Season. The new bathroom and kitchen modernize the manor but keep the traditional style. The new gas stoves have received rave reviews for those "create your meal at home" guests. The location is the best of both... More

Alma Beach Manor is in a great location - easy walking to everything you could need (including the lovely shoreline) and close to the bus routes for a 10 minute trip downtown or out to UBC.

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

We stayed in the English Bay suite; intimate one bedroom. So lovely and clean. Handy bus stop across the street. There was a welcome basket in the fridge and the kitchen was spotless and bright. Lovely bathroom. We will certainly stay there again. Great hosts to greet us!
