We were guided by previous reviews. We were not disappointed. The hotel is close to restaurants and within walking distance of a supermarket and fresh produce market. The room was tidy and adequate . There is no lift but the reception people are willing to carry bags for you.

We stayed 5 nights. The rooms are small but adequate, clean and have all essential facilities including fridge and ensuite. There are no lifts, but only 2 floors and we were offered help with our luggage by reception. The location is fantastic, right in dowtown Toronto, 15 mins walk to Canada Place and Gastown and heaps of other cafe's and... More

The hotel looks far from inviting from the outside, guests have to lug heavy cases upstairs and the reception looks a bit of a mess. But first impressions were soon to be transformed. The receptionist kindly offered to carry our cases to our superb room. It turned out to be a suite, the bed was huge and, more importantly, hugely... More

I've stayed at the Barclay before and I come back! Good, clean, basic and affordable for those weekends away from home. I really appreciated this stay from the friendly and professional reception by John who looked after the paperwork and offered to keep my bags until later that day. Friendly charming service! This hotel offers a good value for a... More

I had no choice where to stay as this was the only room available in the area i needed to be in. The room smelled like old moth balls and the bed is so hard i could feel every spring in it. I barely slept because of this. Could not use the phone in the room unless i asked them... More

Friendly service, carpet smells a little, probably because windows don't open, but the room was clean. Try to take one of the first floor rooms, because there is no elevator to take your bags up. Entrance with stairs, not accessible for weelchairs. Doesn't store your luggage if you need to leave them in Vancouver for one day, we payed our... More

We were checked in this past Tuesday at 1am by an older Asian gentleman with glasses. At that time we were unaware of the hotel's policies regarding payment as it was our first time staying with them. We gave the man my wife's credit card to pay for our stay in-full. When the man took my wife's card, he proceeded... More

Barclay_Hotel_YVR, Manager at Barclay Hotel, responded to this review

The hotel's policy regarding credit card pre-authorization is the same as every other hotel. We ask every guest to provide a credit card (or cash) for the anticipated cost of their stay. This particular situation was slightly confusing because the guest's card was declined for the full amount. The guest then paid the first night in cash and the hotel... More

Great location! Room was ok, had everything I needed. Bad and pillows could use an upgrade, but I'm planning to go to Vancouver and to this hotel again this year. If you are on a budget look no further!!!

Stayed in queen sized room on the 3rd floor which was very clean and had everything I wanted and expected. There are no lifts but I knew this when booking. Basic no frills Hotel which was no problem... More

The bar was not set very high, but the Barclay exceeded my expectations. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Check in was easy. The room and hotel were clean and the hotel is in a great location, we could walk almost everywhere in down-town Vancouver. The room was small and the bathroom was tiny with just the essentials.
