If price is the main consideration, and you don't mind shared toilet and shower facilities, then the Buchan could be a fine choice. No A/C but there was a ceiling fan plus a stand alone fan, plus windows to the outside that opened. Great location- 2 blocks off Denman and Robson with access to all those shops and restaurants, but... More

We enjoyed our short visit there and would like to come back another time to stay longer. We needed a short overnight to connect us from a late arrival to an early morning departure. The building is really charming! Loved the vintage atmosphere! We enjoyed a nice romantic dinner at Adesso (Italian Restaurant attached to the Buchan) for a reasonable... More

The Buchan is perfectly situated at walking distance to English Bay, Stanley Park, and multiple eateries from middle to moderate range. The hotel is comfortable, very clean, and well maintained. Our room was quiet, and spacious enough for our needs. The only drawback was the bed. It was quite hard.

Good value in a really good location, easy to get around and close to Robson/Denham streets and English bay. Thin walls however = earlier wake ups than expected due to other guests showers mostly!!!!!

Very good location in the near of Denman and Robson Street and its shops and restaurants. Short walk to Stanley Park. The staff always was helpful and very nice. The room was suitable furnished and very clean.

Wonderful city and the Buchan hotel was exactly what we wanted. The value was excellatn. We were in the city location we wanted. The room was very clean and tidy, it was not fancy, modern, etc. but we are a retired couple who likes to travel see the sights, and we don't spend much time in a room.

We've stayed at the Buchan numerous times. For its excellent location near Stanley Park and the restaurants of Denman St, its affordable price, its old world charm and its welcoming staff, the Buchan can't be beat.

The hotel is pretty much as it describes itself on its own website - a budget hotel in a great location. While only a block or so from Denman and Robson streets which are both bustling and full of restaurants, I was pleasantly surprised at how quiet the room was - you wouldn't know you were in a city.

In other parts of the world you get better bang for your buck. That includes London, Hong Kong and Paris. Given the current housing issues in Vancouver, my research showed this was the best priced hotel for the money I wanted to spend. I want to say, how disappointed I am, with the old rooms, the small outdated bathroom, my... More

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.
