This was our second stay and third night at this delightful little hotel in downtown Vancouver, BC, and as it turned out, we had the same room each visit. Location, location, location--that's the main asset this place has, close to Gastown, Skytrain, the Amtrak/VIA and Bus station and the cruise terminal all within walking distance or a short taxi ride...

We just stayed the one night and whilst a bit disappointed that there was a private bathroom over the corridor rather than ensuite (which I should have checked) , it was made easier by having a lovely bathrobe in the room to help with the toddle across. Bit warm with just a fan, but clean and comfy bed and lots... More

I had a bad experience in this hotel. I stayed here for some nights and I had the bad luck to be given the standard king room on the ground floor right next to the reception. I have never experienced that a hotel has rooms in the reception and breakfast area and the hotel should definitely reconsider this option. The... More

Dear Kristina K, I am really sorry to hear that the lobby noise made your stay a disappointment and that we couldn't find you a quieter room. Clearly, the activity in the lobby is heightened in the busy period but generally speaking, guests staying in either of the two rooms near the front desk area enjoy their stay. Obviously, that...

Would we stay here again? Answer - no. There are plenty of alternative choices in Vancouver. We thought we had reserved an ensuite room and, as the room originally allocated to us had accidentally been given to guests arriving earlier than us, we'll never know. We did have a private bathroom across the corridor with plenty of towels etc and... More

Thank you for your comments From Leeds. I'm sorry that you didn't get the room type you were hoping for. Had we been made aware of your feelings I believe we would have been able to offer you alternative options. I sure do hope you enjoyed the balance of your time in Vancouver. More

Lovely old building, lovingly restored. Rooms are simple, spacious and elegant. And resonably priced. The staff couldn't be nicer and more helpful. The location is perfect - a couple of blocks to Gastown, downtown and Yaletown. The rooms facing the street may get some traffic noise, but it's manageable.

My wife and I took a risk, having never visited Vancouver and having no idea of where to stay. We stayed at the Victorian for a night and then after a cruise and returning to Vancouver, decided to stay two more nights there. We absolutely loved this place! It has a beautiful vintage vibe and is a very relaxing atmosphere.... More

I almost switched hotels at the last minute after seeing several recent reviews that were negative about the neighborhood. I'm so glad I ignored those reviews though because we had a great experience here! We booked several rooms to accommodate my relatives, and everyone loved it. It was nice to find a more affordable option in Vancouver that still fit... More

I read the mixed reviews here and didn't quite know what to expect, but I was impressed. My room was very clean, well furnished and comfortable. The shared bathroom was immaculate, and I rarely had to wait to use it. The staff were efficient and for a city centre hotel pretty friendly. I was disturbed one night by lorries behind... More

We recently stayed at The Victorian in a small room on the second floor. We picked the hotel based on location (proximity to Gastown), the charm, and the price. The first two pros were very true - we enjoyed the location and the charm of the hotel. A major con to this hotel (or at least our room) was the... More

Thanks for the review KBo24 and thank you for your observations regarding carpeting and/or rugs. I'm not entirely convinced they would have made much difference regarding the boisterous young girls at 3:AM. That said, we just finished re-carpeting the entire hotel and although a lot of guests love the original hardwood, we are now looking at adding additional throw rugs... More

Pros: The manager of this hotel is friendly and helpful, the rooms have been renovated in a lovely style and the simple breakfast is adequate, its also reasonably priced for Vancouver.

Thanks so much for the review Jo&Co. You're right about us trying hard but obviously we could try a little harder. We should always be looking for opportunities to be accommodating and your example about the breakfast was perfectly tee'd up, we just shanked it. Extending the breakfast service a while longer is a no-brainer. As for the back-packers hostel,... More
