I needed a room for one night in Vancouver and booked a single room at the Barclay Hotel before reading the TripAdvisor reviews. Obviously the experiences of other reviewers vary, depending on what room you got, so I can't say my experience was typical but I felt lucky. Pre-booked for a single room @$50/night; I was upgraded on check-in for... More

booked this hotel for 4 nights in leui of a backpackers as it worked out cheaper and far more convenient with a private bathroom. For $60/night we were not disappointed! The room was small but we weren't as cramped as we thought we'd be, and in the great city of Vancouver we spent far more time out of the room... More

Stayed here in Oct 2005. Wasnt that cheap, but lower than some others in Van City. The service was ok, nothing special. Room was small, air con didnt work correctly and there was bonking couples above and birds out side in the under well kept court yard, which was the poor view from my window. Wouldnt stay again, this place... More

If you are going to be in Vancouver for tourist or business purposes, and as such won't need to be spending lots of time in your hotel, then this is a great place to stay. Not because it is dire in any way, but because it doesn't come with those things like a grandiose foyer, swimming pool etc that some... More

This is a good budget hotel in a convenient location. Housed in a traditional building in downtown Vancouver close to shops and restaurants and near to Stanley Park. We were upgraded to a suite after a flight delay and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The suite was clean and comfortable but probably best to say that it is... More

This is an honest hotel. It's a budget hotel at a budget price with budget level facilities. And that's a good thing for downtown Vancouver. I'm here in January 2014 in a basic first floor room at $50/day plus taxes. The room is a small, basic, clean, comfortable place. It has a tiny TV that gets enough channels to make... More

we stayed there 15 days. The front desk people is always ready to help and the price is the most interesting cost position in terms of Vancouver downtown. The hotel location is the most positive remark: close to several restaurants, markets, shopping streets - at Robson Street, the main Vancouver street.

I stayed at this hotel and wanted to book a single room but was told they were sold out for the next 5-6 days and all they had was a double room or a suite, both more expensive. I booked the double room for a few days and then I wanted to book a room for 1-2 more days. I... More

My husband and I recently stayed for 3 nights, and it was very basic, no frills but clean. Small room that needed some wall touch ups and noise carries from slamming doors. No elevator, walk up only, although assistance was offered to carry up luggage. However, for the price, I would stay there again.
