The hotel is in good location for Stanley park and shopping but sadly the room I had booked smelled bad with smoke. It was a non smoking room but for some reason it smelled really bad in their and had to air out the room. They have a cheap breakfast available for $6.30 tax included on offer as well. Also... More

This is the second time we have stayed at the Barclay for a one week stay and it is like coming home. We stayed in the Garden Suite this time which had its own entrance. As always, the room was fabulous, clean, ambiance galore. We enjoyed the separate living room adjacent to our bedroom. We had a fireplace in our... More

It doesn't look great from the outside, but inside this a good, clean hotel - a little dated and a little small but with excellent service and a fabulous location. There are tons of shops nearby and it's a brief walk to Stanley Park and downtown. Ask for a kettle in your room if you want to make tea!

Great location with friendly, helpful staff. Room was comfortable though a little small, but clean with everything needed for a comfortable night. No lifts so was a bit of a hike carrying bags upstairs. Good value for money!

Barclay hotel is in a super location!! Walking distance to the city, Stanley park and has many restaurants and other amenities around it. Nice and clean and on the cheaper side too. The only complaint we had was about the breakfast lady being a rude. Otherwise great place to stay.

Hotel is well located in downtown Vancouver and is close to many restaurants, bars and the waterfront, all of which are just a walking distance away. I wasn't happy though with the room which was old and a little dingy with parts of the plaster coming off in the bathroom. Also, house keeping wasn't up to scratch and the bed-sheets... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location and the price for it! It is located on robson street, just right at downtown which is awesome! A variety of restaurants around, you won't ever starve living here. There are also a few hotels around, so its pretty quiet at night. The room I got was on the second floor.... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I entered Barclay Hotel. The outside does not reflect the ambiance of the 1800s that is reflected in the leaded windows of the door entrance to the rooms. The high ceilings in the room and adequate space speaks of a simpler time. The room I stayed in was very cozy with a workable TV and... More

This hotel in a perfect location for Vancouver city sight seeing but be prepared for no elevator and very small rooms. We were on the third floor with two 25kg bags! There was mould in our bathroom but the room was adequately clean. Only one night. If it was a longer stay we would have wanted something nicer but for... More

Well, it is on Robson Strasse, but that is all that is going for it. The building is very tired, although it is resonably clean. The rooms are depressing with views of back alleys and service ducts. The breakfast is strange to say the least - stale pastries, poor coffee and some asian food. The place seems to be run... More

Staying in Robson Street

Neighborhood Profile
Robson Street
Robson Street is a shopper's paradise. Whether a window shopper or a serious trendsetter, a fashionista or a dabbler, the crowd of independent boutiques, quirky one-off shops, and well-known luxury brands on Robson Street have something to cater for every itch in your wallet. As a result, it draws a diverse crowd, and the people-watching along this famous walking thoroughfare is a primary attraction. In between the clothing shops both high-street and budget-friendly are a number of cafes to lay down your load, as well as numerous specialty stores ranging in their wares from music, to art, to city souvenirs. Known as "Vancouver's Runway," if a new trend is on the rise, you'd spot it here first.
