This hotel is situated 5 minutes walk from down town Vancouver, and has everything at walking distance. They had nice staff, decent rooms, and a lousy breakfast. Rooms: A big gap between door and floor, had to put a towel in the gap to shut out noise from later arriving hotel residents. No safety deposit box in the room. Comfy... More

Many thanks for your comments BjornC. It's a bit of a mystery to me how you missed out on our fresh fruit, yogurt, croissants and locally made granola that we serve each day, but it sure explains why you had a complaint about the breakfast and I'm sorry about that . Please try us again next time and I can... More

Very clean hotel with continental breakfast. Polite and knowledgable staff. Centrally located and conveniently close to the Hop on/Hop off tour bus and restaurants. My only two negative comments is there are no air-conditioning in the rooms nor is there an elevator. There are fans to cool but it's not the same. If you have a hard time with stairs... More

We stayed here after an Alaskan cruise for our honeymoon. The hotel was an easy 10 minute walk form the cruise terminal, even in the 30 degree heat! After the small cruise stateroom, the beautiful an large victorian room we were given looked even more amazing! The bathroom was well decorated with a powerful shower. It's true, this part of...

I would categorize the Victorian as a good mid-range hotel close to Gastown (think of it as a large, older B&B that has been restored). It was nice to start the day with a complimentary continental breakfast in the shared dining room every morning. The food was fresh and plentiful. We stayed in the Family Room on the first floor...

This hotel was located in an "iffy" neighborhood, but close enough to walk to Gastown. Nothing fancy, but adequate. I didn't feel safe walking outside at night. The host was sufficient, but not overly friendly. The radiator near the bed was leaking, so beware. Very small bathroom, but functional.

Thanks for the comments CurliCarli, I'm now in a quest to locate the offending radiator. We should not have to wait for a guest review to identify room deficiencies, So, I both thank you pointing it out and apologize we missed it in the first place. Safe travels. More

We enjoyed our two night stay there en route to Victoria. Being so close to the wonderful area of Gastown with its great restaurants was an added bonus. This is a hotel with character befitting its age. Our bedrooms were overlooking a car park so was nice and quite apart from bin lorries one morning. The rooms have that nice... More

Many thanks Jane C for your wonderful Belfast-perspective of our city's less fortunate. I certainly appreciate how striking the contrast between urban and non-urban environments must be for some people, depending on where the are from. Vancouver is one of the safest cities on the planet, yet we share many of the same challenges other major cities have in dealing... More

We decided to stay at this small downtown hotel after our cruise from Alaska. Our room looked out onto a lane way. Nighttime produced shady characters doing shady things and the morning produced loud and frequent delivery trucks providing an early rise from a comfortable bed. Not again. Having a room on the first floor beside the reception and dining... More

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...
