We checked in at 8pm and were given a 1st floor room facing Granville st across from the elevators. I was abit worried about noise in the hallway and the bar underneath our room but it was not a issue. Not big rooms but comfy bed, table and chairs, coffeepot and nice bathroom. Room was very clean. The noise from... More

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times. I recently stayed there for 5 nights and then again for a separate 2 nights. The best thing about this hotel is the staff. The receptionist staff, Andra, Richard, and Adam are in particular, genuinely concerned about the guests and want to help the guests get the room they want. They help... More

The room had vintage decor but the beds were comfortable. The bathroom has had an excellent makeover & was very clean with lots of clean towels provided. Too much air fresher used in the room. The HJ is a gem in the heart of downtown Vancouver and is close to everything; but be warned, it is in an area that... More

The last two times that we stayed in Vancouver, we stayed in small hotels with shared bathrooms to save money and were prepared to do so again. However, a friend mentioned this location to us. Their prices were comparable to the previous places which we stayed, but had the full amenities that you usually get at hotels in the US,... More

A bit of a late review as we stayed here in late 2014. Yes, the rooms are small and the decor is sort of, umm, vintage. The location was great though and the staff were pleasant. Basically, we got what we expected and paid for. I do agree about the previous reviews that complained about the overuse of air freshener... More

One can easily walk to Yaletown, Gastown, Canada Place, etc. I walked pretty much walked to all corner of city from here. Also the Yaletown train station is a couple mins... More

Stayed here ten nights. We originally booked 6, but enjoyed it so much that we booked 4 more. The staff were friendly, rooms were cleaned every day and it was in the best location to walk everywhere. We would definitely stay again.
