Be ready to share bathrooms and small toilet rooms. Fortunately, there is a basin in each room. It is too bad there is no incentive to keep linen and towels if they are suitable for using them throughout the stay. With the heat during the day, towels could dry quickly. A hair-dryer in the room would be appreciated. Too bad... More

I had read other reviews and was expecting a very minimal experience but it is a great place. Nice room, great area, inexpensive and really, really quiet! You have to share a bathroom but it is no different than a house. I was so surprised at this little gem in expensive Vancouver. Definitely coming back!

Great hotel in an ideal location near Stanley park and lots of restaurants and at a good price. Shared bathroom was an initial concern but there were plenty of toilets and showers so never proved a problem and they were just across the hall.

Can't beat the price. The Buchan is a very clean, spartan place to stay with a great location (for my particular trip needs). Yes the bathrooms are shared (each floor has multiple small toilet rooms and shower rooms) but I knew this going in. They were both clean and accessible. If what you expect out of your hotel is a...

We stayed here for two nights in August. It's in a good location very close to Stanley park, aquarium and you can walk into the city no problem in around 15 minutes. We stayed in a room with a private bathroom, large bed and it was a decent sized room. With a huge tv! However the room didn't come with... More

Good value excellent location. Stayed twice with no problems. Bathroom just across hall no big deal. Sink on room for washing and brushing teeth. Everything else same. Just don't go to onsite restaurant. Tiny portions.

Very inexpensive no frills hotel. Had a shared bath which was not an issue. Nothing fancy. Very basic. Quiet and great location for the price. Close to all the people watching and bustle of English Bay but on a tree shaded serene street. No elevator. No AC but 2 fans. As mentioned, very plain. Nice restaurant, Adesso, with lovely ambience... More

From check-in until the check-out we had a wonderful time in the Buchan Hotel. The missing air condition is no real issue because the hotel staff developed ways to deal with it. The location of the hotel is even perfect for tourists having no car!

Affordable and comfortable accommodation in an unbeatable location. Our family members have been staying here for years and it never disappoints. Make sure to ask for a room with a bathroom. Some rooms have toilets and showers down the hall

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
