Vancouver is a beautiful town. But this hotel is a mess. The loudest hotel-room we ve ver been too. the standard was lower than in nearly every youth hostel. Considering that the room-rate is quite high, what you get is a bitter joke. Good advice: Avoid this hotel.

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in Vancouver and we thought it was great. Basic room but everything you could need for the price, and was right in the heart of Vancouver!!! Staff were fantastic, had a fridge and safe in the room, shared facilities were also great. Full access to a kitchen, and had no issues waiting for... More

Last minute booking due to flight issues. Booked online through a third-party website, but when I got here they hadn't received my reservation or payment. Amenities - virtually none. There is a sink in the room but no personal bathroom. Rooms 201-224 share 4 unisex bathrooms: 2 have only toliets (no sink) and 2 are full bathrooms. The bathrooms were... More

Needed a place to sleep. Was clean. Shared bathroom - had no conflicts. Geared to young travelers on a budget. No major issues. Staff was helpful. Some maintenance required, i.e. plumbing. Good location with allot of places to eat. Parking on street is difficult. Hotel has limited parking available.

This place was dirty, smelled and was unsafe. It also is a brothel. Do not stay here. The reviews on hotels.com were terribly misleading and the company was of no use in helping us defray the cost of getting a new room on a high demand summer weekend when nothing else was available (seriously). Will be using trip advisor or... More

It's located in the yaletown area on Granville. It can get noisy at night as quite a few bars/clubs in the area,but from my 2nd floor room it didn't once bother me. There is plent of cafes, restaurants and supermarkets in the area and the yaletown skytrain stop is about a 5-10min walk. Most places of interest are accessible by... More

I stayed in this 'hotel' for 2 nights and felt unsafe the entire time. Calling this a hotel is generous, and it's actually a hostel. The area is bad, and the lock on my door was very flimsy. The chain had been removed so I was unable to have any additional security on my door. The check in staff were... More

Stayed 3 nights. Clean and quiet, the location suited us very well. Only thing I didn't realize until we got there was that it was a shared bathroom with the whole floor. It didn't end up being a big deal as it was so quiet. Other than that, really no problems. shared kitchen for hot water etc, and we didn't... 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.
