Stayed 2 nights at Barclay Hotel. It is located on the bustling Robson Street - many restaurants and several supermarkets. The room was clean, modern and everything worked. Wifi was consistent. However, the room with double bed we got was rather small. The breakfast while cheap was rather basic. It is true that sound proofing is not good as you... More

Despite reading mixed reviews for the Barclay Hotel, we had no issues during our stay. It was a very good hotel and only added to the many positives of Vancouver. Arriving early we were able to leave our bags and set off and see some of the area. Stanley Park is only a short walk away, so it's easy to... More

We stayed at this hotel as it was on sale. I was really surprised at the room as it was big, clean, really nice bed, great rate. Was expecting not much for what we paid and was surprised how nice of a room it was. We were upgraded to a suite. The room was clean, spacious, nice bathroom, updated. Friendly... More

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
