I think that you get what you pay for here. The rooms are basic and in need of renovation but they are very reasonably priced ,and are clean with plenty of hot water and soft towels.The common room/lounge is very nice and has lots of helpful literature on Vancouver and free tea and coffee. We found the front desk staff to be helpful and friendly. There are no phones in the rooms so a wake up call is a knock on the door which works just as well.
The area that the Buchan is in is lovely being close to Stanley park,a wide variety of restaurants and interesting shopping too. It is also handy for public transport. English Bay is a short walk away.
It is a budget hotel but is perfectly adequate for a short stay.
