My husband and I stayed overnight in Vancouver after a cruise. The Victorian was perfect for our purposes - a safe, comfortable and clean place to sleep and shower before we were off to the next day's adventure. Some surprises: no AC, wifi was great downstairs but patchy and sometimes inaccessible in our third floor room, and our room did... More

Thank you so very much for your comments Jleigh. The staff will be delighted to see your kind words about them. As for the wi-fi, we actually have a very highly rated system currently but we are installing what I believe will be the fastest network in the city as we know how essential it is for so many travelers....

We loved our stay here. The hotel is clean, the beds are comfy, and the staff is fantastic. It's old, so if you're looking for some sleek, modern place, this might not be for you. We thoroughly enjoyed it due to it's central location and value. Having a great staff really adds to the place. We had a King room... More

My traveling companions found this gem for us when we needed to move from the expensive package that was part of our fundraising. We loved the price but were a bit worried about the location. No need to worry! the rooms were well appointed, clean and very friendly! We worried about "no elevator and potential of stairs to get our... More

I made a reservation on December 3rd for two nights in May at a very favorable rate. I gave the hotel a valid credit card number in December and my confirmation email states that no deposit is required and that a valid credit card number is required at check in. Today is three days before my intended stay and I... More

Dear Margaret, you are absolutely right that it would be a dishonorable business practice to cancel your reservation and re-sell your room if you were not given a chance to resolve the invalid credit card situation. I can assure you that is last thing we would consider doing. Unfortunately we didn't have your phone number on the reservation. Our standard... More

This small boutique hotel is my first choice in the city for something affordable. It was really clean, newly renovated, and even includes a continental breakfast! Wifi was the only thing that was challenging as it wasn't consistent during my stay. Don't be worried about the shared bathrooms. I had visions of needing to share a bathroom between rooms which...

Many thanks MKoehn. I'm glad you took a chance with one of our rooms with the shared bathroom configuration. I can say they're not for everyone but you simply can't get a better value in downtown Vancouver if do don't mind the set-up. (It doesn't hurt that they are brand new, immaculate, stone-tiled facilities). As for the wi-fi, we are... More

modern convenience with charm. great location, fair prices, a decent Continental breakfast, very clean, down comforters, near to good restaurants and attractions, and my travel agent found it for me! Easy walking distance to Stanley Park, waterfront, Canada Place, Gastown, and the Amtrak station.

This hotel was in a GREAT location! Lots of stuff to see/do in walking distance. We got a room with a private bathroom for the first 3 nights of our trip. The shower was teeny tiny, but privacy wins over space in my opinion. Lol. I fell in love with the hotel the moment I walked in. The room was... More

Many thanks for your review Carey. Your recollections of last August are timely, given the summer is fast approaching. As they say "better late than never".The room you stayed in will be completely re-done by your next stay. No more tiny showers, just high ceilings and super cool exposed brick. I recommend that you make your reservation soon. Not that... More

We loved this hotel. Yes it is old and dated. Yes you share bathrooms and showers (private of course). Yes it has that old-builidng feel. But the price is fantastic, the rooms comfortable, although small, and you are within 15 minute walk of anything in Gastown or Robson Street for numerous places to eat. Our room was small (full bed),... More

What a simply wonderful, laid-back review Daniel. I have to mention that we have another half of the hotel that offers a decidedly more contemporary feel, with beautiful ensuite bathrooms and substantially more room. If you like cool, you'll have to try out one of these on your next visit. We'll see you then. More

The hotel is right outside the entrance to Gastown and is within walking distance to downtown. Friendly staff at reception. Spacious rooms and comfortable beds. Simple but good breakfast. Value for money.
