Myself and my husband stayed for 2 nights after visiting Vancouver for a week. I was slightly put off by the neighbourhood at first as a cross the street the shops are abandoned and a homeless guy was fast asleep on the floor. The next day after we had explored more the neighbourhood was definitely nice to look around.
We checked it at the tiny check in area which just has a desk and lift. We booked via Expedia and it was very cheap and close to the Skytrain which was a plus for us definitely.
The building is Victorian so I'm used to this coming from the UK so I didn't mind it at all but I can see why some may find it dated. Our room was at the back with a view of 2 apartment tower blocks which I didn't like. The bathroom was clean but the shower not powerful enough for me to use.
All the staff on the desk were polite, friendly and helpful.
We used the 15% discount voucher to use the Met Bar and Grill adjacent to the Hotel on the first night. Very fairly priced food and drinks. We had spaghetti and meatballs and fish and chips and really enjoyed it. The staff behind the bar were so very welcoming and didn't mind advising us of nearby places. The locals having a drink did put me off slightly as they were shouting and swearing a lot which of course isn't anybody's fault, overall a good cheap place plain and simple.
