As others have indicated, the price is good and it is in a good downtown location. However, the hotel is very old, the rooms very tiny and there is no elevator so people with mobility issues would have a problem. Also, the halls are tiled which makes it extremely noisy especially when people are pulling their wheeled luggage down the... More

I spent 6 nights in this simple and good hotel at Robson Street. Good price and excelent location. There is no luxury in this place, but the rooms are confortable and very clean. The build is old and there is no elevator, but for me it wasn't a problem.

A good hotel for a short backpack type trip. Very basic rooms and noisey hallways. However it's in a great location on Robson street, a two minute walk to most shops and central dowmtown. It has a small bar downstairs which again is very basic but It also provides free wifi internet. If you are in need of a place... More

I've spend there four nights and the service was a superb. Good location, clean and plenty of shops and restaurants around it. Good price, not too expensive. I was really surprised for a deal like that in almost central downtown.

Travelling to Vancouver for a weekend, I was looking for something budget but clean. Reading the reviews on this hotel and the recent one million dollar upgrade, I didn't think I could go too wrong. Unfortunately though, it is clear that the upgrades were not made to the rooms. The hallway to the rooms is nicely tiled, wide and bright,... More

A very old hotel that has been refurbished - clean warm and fresh with very helpful friendly full of service staff. Being anxious before I check in I spoke to front desk about travel destinations. Within half an hour I was given a reply on all details that I need - wow! Awesome service! I was also given a percolator... More

I have stayed at the Barclay many times simply because of the price and location. There is no elevator which may pose a problem to some, but the staff will help you with your luggage. The halls are wide and nicely tiled. The room I got this time was massive! I could have held a party for 40 in there.... More

Stayed a week here in December. The hotel is fairly basic with no elevator but the room was clean and cleaned daily. I found it pretty quiet at night and staff very helpful. It's in a safe area, close to all the city centre activities and amenities. Overall it was good value in a good location
