Pleasantly surprised. My only issue was a funny chemical smell that seemed to permeate the whole second floor where I was staying and was a bit stronger in my room. I set the A/C to cool and dehumidify and purchased an inexpensive plug-in air freshener to sort out things while I wasn't in the room. Bed is comfy enough and... More

The Barclay is a really good budget option when visiting Vancouver and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. I was a little worried about how this hotel would be as I got a really good price, especially considering the prime location on Robson Street. Although the building is old, the room was clean and comfortable. There was even a... More

They have done a nice job updating the main hotel areas, the guest rooms could do with the same treatment as they are looking a bit tired. It was clean and tidy and we managed to get a decent nights sleep. Shame there was no kettle for got drinks.

I have stayed here several times over the last ten years or more. The hotel is reasonably priced. It is located walking distanced to everything. Especially Stanley Park. The hotel has a nice communal area with coffee and tea. Would be even better if they added a microwave and a fridge or ice. Clean hotel. Some rooms are noisy if... More

This is a budget hotel with limited amenities. That said, it is clean, the staff are friendly and hospitable and the location can't be beat. If you don't need all the extras, this is the hotel for you!

Not much not to like. The hotel was built in the days when rooms were large and corridors were wide so it feels wonderfully spacious, even if there are signs that a spot of paint could be applied. The floor in the corridor on our floor was so shiny you could see your face in it. Should have been a... More

We stayed at the Barclay for about a week. We got what we paid for, a decent room in the heart of downtown Vancouver. The location is probably the best thing about the hotel as it is close to all sorts of different restaurants and cuisines. The room we were given was decent, but there was always this smell of...

Nothing exceptionally great about the hotel except its location. The area is safe at night unlike the outskirts of the city. Daily shuttles for Capillano and Mt Grouse start from nearby the hotel (10 mins walk) Also the hotel has some good food joints across the road. They provide soaps ,shampoos and clean towels. CAUTION- NO ELEVATOR (although you can... More

Its basic but it is comfortable and clean. My room was small but the bed was comfortable, the air con worked, and there was tv,... 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.
