Just spent 2 notes at the Barclay Hotel after cruising Alaska. Front desk staff were very friendly and we were upgraded to a suite for the same price. We were allowed to leave our luggage at the front desk on the day of arrival as the cruise ships dock at 0730 and of course we were not able to check... More

We wanted to stay Downtown to see the fireworks and they had a room available for a very good price. We were not expecting much. It was a bit tricky to find mid-block and the parking was at another location (not valet). But - at only $15 a night it was a smokin' deal in Vancouver. I was dismayed to... More

I stayed here for 10 days. During my visit I was kept awake every night due to the noise from the hotel bar. Staff would shout to eachother down corridors and you could hear every movement from the rooms around you. I had a do not disturb sign on my door, which housekeeping chose to ignore. I had to lock...

The Barclay Hotel is towards one end of downtown Robson Street. Not a fancy hotel but convenient location. Local buses and Hop-on Hop-off tour buses past the door. Dozens of eateries of all kinds surround the hotel. We even parked the hire car behind the hotel for $10/day. Rooms vary in size but ours was more a suite than a... More

Very basic but clean. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Because of availability they upgraded us to a very big and spacious room. The location is good and in walking distance. Some good restaurants in walking distance to the hotel. The bus to the Ferry terminal is one block away. We would stay there again.

Was there with a group, someone else made the reservation. Describing it as "no frill" is a complement, poorly lit hallways (very bright), poorly designed rooms, can hear every movement outside of my room and above. Our room had no closet, a shelf with a closet pole was put on one wall - might have worked but the desk was... More

Stopped here for a few nights. Staff were helpful. Parking available just on the next block. Room was clean. Certainly a no frills place but got all the basics right and the location was great. Shame there wasn't an elevator to reception and our room that's the only downside. Would stop there again if on a budget.

We chose this hotel as it was one of the cheapest in downtown Vancouver, which turned out to be a very expensive destination! Therefore we were not surprised when it turned out to be as dated and basic as expected. The location is good though and for that reason we re-booked for a few extra nights after visiting Vancouver Island,... More

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.
