This venue is not for the hotel connoisseur – the whole building is very out of date and not particularly clean. It is also unsuitable for people with accessibility requirements or significant amounts of luggage, as there are steep steps to enter the building and no lifts. I’ve stayed here twice (at the beginning and end of a round-trip), and on both occasions the rooms were cramped and had malfunctioning lights and power outlets. The carpets are dirty and worn out, and the wallpaper and paint is peeling off of surfaces (this refers to the rooms and the lobby/corridors). The sole reason for staying at this hotel is for the location – it is less than 5 minutes from Stanley Park, Downtown and a key area of the English Bay beach, and has good restaurants nearby. Other hotels in the area are more expensive as you are paying for quality as well as the location; the Buchan is merely a roof over your head at night and a place to leave your suitcase whilst you explore beautiful Vancouver. Only stay here if you’re willing to sacrifice luxury in order to get a prime location.
