My husband and I stayed here at the beginning of May this year. We spent a lot of time researching and once we decided on the Carmana, everything else fell perfectly into place. It is very handy to subway stations and busses, if you're using them to get around, which is really easy in Vancouver. And we had a whole... More

The Carmana was one of the best value-for-money options in downtown Vancouver, with a full kitchen, dishwasher, and dining area. Beds were comfortable, housekeeping did a great job on each of the 3 days of our stay, and everything worked. I was very pleasantly surprised by how spacious the one-bedroom suite was, and the location couldn't have been better for... More

Stayed 13th & 14th May Reception staff were excellent, friendly and efficient. Our room on the eighth floor faced Alberni St and a streetscape of low & high rise buildings. We had a one bedroom king suite which included a full kitchen, separate dining area, lounge and work desk. Location was excellent with Robson St shopping a couple of minutes... More

Good price for very nice quarters, especially considering location, location, location, in the middle of downtown Vancouver. $160/night. I'm guessing not every room at this hotel consisted of a multi-room suite.

Eight traveling friends in four suites. Lots of space and great to have two bathrooms. Nice to have tea and bottled water in the room. Coffeemaker too. Beds are comfortable. Bathrooms clean. Towels a little thin, but they got us extra. Love the little balcony and views. The windows open - great to have fresh air. The lobby is not... More

We stayed in 2 two bedroom suites for a week and were very pleased with the Carmana. We were a little concerned about booking the suites because of the star rating for the hotel. The deciding factor was the second bathroom in both suites. making a total of 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.The kitchen was well stocked with a full... More

Stayed at Carmana for few nights during a conference. It is conveniently located in downtown core not too far from Convention Centre. Very clean rooms with good size balconies. Well equipped kitchens, if you prefer to eat in. Grocery store is near by as well as great restaurants and shopping are a short walk. Stanley park is walking distance, approx... More

We had friends visiting from Australia who wanted a two bedroom hotel room centrally located. Voila....The Carnaba Plaza fit the bill perfectly. It is located within walking distance of all the highlights in Vancouver - Stanley Park, Davie Street and the famous Robson Street shopping. Right outside the door is the Canadian icon Tim Hortons and across the street is... More

This was our first stay at the Carmana and we were pleasantly surprised with the size of the 2 bedroom suite that we had booked. It was the size of an apartment which it probably was at some point and is very nicely furnished. It had 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, one being an ensuite off of the master... More

Had a two bedroom two bath condo for a night in Vancouver. The views were amazing from the 24th floor. The suite had been updated and we were not lacking a thing. Free wifi, parking included. Complete kitchen and lots of space. Not your typical hotel room. The location is perfect. This will be our "go to" in Vancouver. Price... More
