Rooms were fairly large, staff friendly, wifi average (which means getting kicked off at times but otherwise okay), beds average, excellent location and rooms were clean enough. One drawback was that the walls seemed pretty thin, as we could hear others talking in the rooms next to us. It wasn't a big problem though as the hotel didn't seem too... More

My husband and I only stayed for a night. Requested for a room as high as possible. Upon check in we were told that there was an upgrade for us which was a plus.

Hotel is in the heart of shopping and restaurants. Perfect location. Rooms were clean, comfortable. Not fancy but more than adequate. Upper floors have great views. Wi-fi a little querky, staff helpful and friendly. Parking is $17 per night.

This was my fifth stay at the Blue Horizon. Was originally referred by a family member who knows value. The rate is good, particularly if you drive a car to Vancouver. Between Christmas and New Year's, I paid $129/night for a large, double queen on a three night stay. Self parking is only $17/night, the hotel is accessible from the... More

I love Vancouver more each time I go there. I have friends living there and could have stayed with them but chose the Blue Horizon so as not to crowd them. Located on Robson St with its buzzy attractions, I scored a corner room high-up with a fantastic view over grouse Mountain and English Bay. The building is probably 70's... More

On arriving in Vancouver, BC, Canada on 3 August 2014, my husband and I checked into the Blue Horizon Hotel. We had initially booked a room for five nights. The Blue Horizon hotel is centrally located on Robson Street in downtown Vancouver. Our room was on the 6th floor with elevator access and views from our balcony. Though the room... More

The location of this hotel is what makes it an interesting choice when visiting Vancouver: it is really easy to get there from the airport and the other way around as well. Also really important to mention is that this hotel is downtown so you're really in the middle of the action: restaurants, boutiques and some attractions (Canada place, Stanley... More

Dear Manuel P, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. “I agree, we have an amazing location.” I am happy to hear you enjoyed our large guest rooms and appreciated the good value we offer.

Easy to find hotel on robinson street. Very central location, with convenient car park attached to side of hotel. Staff very friendly also. Breakfast was very good, with lots of choices - from very healthy to not so healthy! Rooms were very good, not complaints there! Overall, would have no concerns saying here at all!

This hotel is in the perfect central Vancouver location. The small lobby is pretty and the hotel is very clean. We paid to upgrade to a room on the 28th floor and the views are breathtaking.

Referred to this refurbished hotel by a friend who said it offered BC residents rates. For a centrally located downtown hotel, this was certainly within the budget! Highly recommend upgrading to a higher floor as the views of Stanley Park and the West End are spectacular. The balcony was not huge but certainly could fit a couple of patio chairs... More
