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

Shops, restaurants, car rentals are all around. Staff is very friendly, courteous and willing to help. Wi-Fi is free and has good coverage and strength. The bad is that air conditioning does not have heating mode and they turn central heating on only when it's really cold.

I was quite surprised when I first saw my room. We booked a "deluxe" room, which was $10 more per night, and we got room 431. It was very spacious and clean: living room area, separate small room with a desk and chairs and large bathroom. Bed was comfortable - not too firm, not too soft, and there was a... More

Stayed here for a 3 night stopover in late October. Wasn't intending to be in the room very much and I was on my own. Given this criteria and the fact that the location was ideal for me to renew my acquaintance with this beautiful city I was happy with the accommodation. Sure, there were some negative aspects that you... More

I'm not paying for this room so I have no idea of what it cost, but I would hope that it's not very expensive. There are some pluses; good mattress and decent bedding, plenty of water pressure in the shower, decent channel selection on the tube. The room seems to have been renovated fairly recently. On the downside the room... More
