Sorry folks, but the Aberdeen Mansion is no longer available for guests. We stayed there for many years while visiting our daughter in the Commercial Drive area, and it was top notch. But more than a year ago the owner switched to a "long term lease policy" for the many apartments within.

This initially seemed like a lovely place but the longer i stayed the more i realised that it has many problems! Negatives; 1 - Staying on the top floor and sharing a bathroom with other rooms was interesting seeing as there were no cleaning products available and when the cleaner came all she did was tuck the end of the...

This is a great place to act as a base for business or vacation in the city. The area is great and convenient for transport. The self-catering apartment was spacious and comfortable with some quirky designs, which added character and was much better than a soul-less hotel room. The wi-fi in the room worked well. It was a bit cheap... More

we arrived there in august and the hostess was not helpful but the cleaning lady was more welcoming and friendly. The place is dimly lit and computer with internet is located in a small basement room side by side the washer and dryer. The room is very small and extremely uncomfortable if you have more than 2 pieces of luggage... More

My husband and I stayed in the Newcastle Suite for 6 nights (has a full ready-to-cook kitchen). There is no front desk, and you must call employees when you on your way to the Mansion. The people there are very responsive to your needs. All you have to do is call them, or leave a note on their clipboards throughout... More

We stayed in the Canterbury Suite for six nights and enjoyed it very much. We never saw any of the staff after the first morning, but we didn't need them. We made use of their wifi network to do any planning and checking on directions during our stay, and we were able to make our own bed. The suite was... More

The Aberdeen House itself is lovely - an old Victorian mansion. It looks great. We stayed there from mid October to mid December. The top floor shares the bathroom with the other units, but this didn't pose a problem. There's a claw tub, which is awesome. There was one very major hitch, though. Not long after arriving, we asked for... More

We booked Aberdeen Mansion on line and were very happy with the accommodation and location. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite and with the large front room and full kitchen it was like a home away from home. For us all the furniture and added touches gave the suite character, not your typical stereotype hotel room. The location... More

From reading previous reviewers, I was a bit skeptical on the condition of the Aberdeen, but after being shown our room, this soon became one of our favorite places to stay in Vancouver. The suite is spacious with living room, kitchen, dining room, bath and bedroom. The bedroom is a bit on the small side but it is quite nice... More

Staying in Commercial Drive

Neighborhood Profile
Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy counter-culture. Straddling the line between sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups, and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit of self-aware graffiti, Commercial Drive has resisted gentrification in favor of continuing to build a thriving den of affordable multiculturalism. Once known as Vancouver's "Little Italy," it has also been the immigration point for Guatemalans, Hondurans, and Portuguese to the city. The resulting hodgepodge makes for poetry readings in espresso cafes, social debates in early-open bakeries, and eco-activism posters pinned up in the many multi-ethnic markets in the area. Commercial Drive is where you go to feel like a local, and if you have them, bring the kids – The Drive has a number of bookshops, toy stores, and attractions to get them involved too.
