This hotel was awesome! Walking distance to about every park within two miles, or bicycle if you prefer. It is an old hotel however, it had been updated furniture wise. Appliances no. But, the surrounding area is all historic infusing this hotel. I'm here in July middle of summer and it is 73 degrees in my room. Room 38 deluxe... More

Really enjoyed my stay. I needed a quiet affordable place to stay for a quick trip to Vancouver. The Buchan Hotel fulfilled my needs. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Perfect if you just need a bed and access to a shower.

Good location, but there is no a/c or sufficient accommodations for heat (also no concern or even proper costumer service from the staff over our discomfort). Probably a decent deal during the cooler months but nearly unbearable otherwise. It would have been more comfortable trying to sleep in my car then to toss and turn in my own sweat. For... More

Thank you so much for your review. I do agree with you, The Buchan can get very hot in the summer time. First off the bat, I do want to apologize for the seemingly poor customer service. That is not what I want or expect any of our customers to experience. I will have a discussion will all of our... More

This hotel has what a traveler needs. It is close to Stanley Park, shopping, bike rentals, food, and great views. Room was clean, the bed was comfortable and water is drinkable from the tap. Only downside is that there is no elevator but you only need to carry your luggage up once so that shouldn't be a problem. I would... More

love the location and environment, cleanliness, free coffee and tea in hotel lobby, a lot of restaurants and 7-11 nearby, friendly staff. Good value hotel. Stanley park and English bay is just 5-10 minute walk and close to free shuttle bus stop to Capilano bridge.

The Buchan is marketed as a "Budget Hotel". In general you get what you pay for but in this case I feel you get more than you pay for. Location, Location Location! Minutes from Stanley park in a peaceful tree lined area this close to downtown - perfect location. We arrived early but they got us into our room anyway.... More

The Buchan Hotel is in a great location on a quiet residential street; just one block to Stanley Park and a couple of blocks to Denman Street and Robson Street. We (mature couple) had a corner room with ensuite bathroom; the room was spacious, clean, quiet, and simply furnished with an armchair, desk, wardrobe and television. We appreciated the free... More

Took an Alaskan cruise that started in Vancouver three years ago. I happened onto the Buchan. I enjoyed my stay 3 years ago so much, that when I was doing the same cruise in June 2014, I immediately booked the Buchan again. The front desk is very helpful and friendly and the location right next to Stanley Park is great.... More

Vancouver is a beautiful but expensive city. That said, the Buchan is a great bargain. To begin with, its location is superb. You are only a couple blocks from Stanley Park (which is where you will want to spend as much time as possible). Denman Street is only a could blocks away as well. There you will find plenty of...

Thank you so much for your kind words. It's always great to hear nice words about the staff, I know how hard they try, and it's great to see it recognized by others. A lot of travellers find themselves getting used to a shared bathroom pretty quickly, especially when they're traveling on a budget. More

We stayed at the Buchan Hotel, May 31, 1, 2 , 2014- we found it to be clean and comfortable. We had a basement room, so private bath and was cooler downstairs. Close to Denman Street (which we loved for the restaurants, and people watching), Stanley Park, close to the Hop on Hop off Trolly's and we enjoyed being in... More
