We were looking on-line to find a place to celebrate our anniversary....and we found it!! On the West End on Vancouver, off the main drag, quite and quaint, we parked our car and did everything by a foot-walk. The Vancouver Aquarium in Stanley Park only a 10 minute walk away, near cafe's, shops and 15 minutes from the nightlife on... More

This review echoes what most others have said. We were in Vancouver for the Grey Cup and had trouble finding a hotel downtown. The Buchan is located on a well-treed street close to Stanley Park. Denman Street is half a block away and has many restaurants. It also leads to English Bay. Getting downtown on Robson is easy although the... More

Thank you so much for your kind words. I do agree with you, the stairwells need some work. Taking care of the Buchan as she gets closer and closer to that 100 year old mark is a daunting and rewarding task, and it is something we are going to address. More

We reserved a queen with private bath several months ago after our usual Vancouver hotel (the Victorian Hotel on Homer) got a little too pricy for our budget--possibly because I was booking for Grey Cup weekend. The Buchan turned out to be quite fine. The location is a few blocks from Stanley Park but we could still walk to the... More

Great experience here for very little money. Very clean rooms with TV and desk area. Our room had a bathroom (some do not) but bathrooms and showers are just down the hall. Limited covered parking available for $10/night on request first come first served. The Adesso gourmet Italian restaurant next door is casual but great food and service. We were... More

I have worked in hospitality and tourism for 30 years and have a degree in hotel management. The Buchan is a nice hotel with a great location in the heart of Vancouver, close to Stanley Park. Expect no frills amenities, a comfortable bed, very attentive and caring staff and a "no cookie cutter" atmosphere since the Buchan is a unique... More

This is perfect place to stay! The staff is super friendly. They helped us out a lot with our Luggage. We could leave it in a room when we travelled further through the country and picked it up later when we stayed another night. This was no problem. Also, the waiting / (free) coffee area is great. The beds are... More

Thank you for your comments. We certainly have no problems storing guest's bags free of charge, we just like to let people know that we have a 90 day limit on pick up. More

Vancouver is an expensive city so we were willing to give up the "luxuries" of a more modern and expensive hotel for a two night stay at The Buchan. The building is old but does have a certain charm. The desk staff were helpful, if a little layed back. Coffee and tea are available in a large sitting area just... More

Decent stay... if you're not spending any time IN the hotel. The bed was comfy, the TV was new, and the location is PERFECT; so close to Stanley Park and many restaurants. The staff were friendly and super helpful. The hotel is advertised as a "clean, quiet, and comfortable". Quiet was not what we got. We were able to hear... More

I wanted to love what looked like a gem from the outside. Sometimes the charm of an old hotel outweighs any shortcomings. I loved the front desk staff and maid service. They were friendly and helpful. The hotels location is amazing, and I felt like I was living in a park given the green space around the hotel. The price... More

I spent 2 nights at the Buchan and the experience was good, even if I found it a bit expensive for what it offers, but I know Vancouver is a city with high rooming prices. The location was great, very closed to Stanley Park. The room was decent and clean. Is in a quiet street, but some noise comes from... More
