“Artsy Hotel”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Lots of great things about this hotel. Location was fantastic, staff were amazing and the place was packed with great art. The hotel had a really nice vibe and they even did a 5pm wine hour which was a nice touch. Summer deal included parking which was the bait for us on this last trip.

However I can only give it a 3 due to the beds. Old, cheap and glad I only spent one night.

liked the room with comfortable bed and a balcony with a view down to the waterfront, and breakfast was really good. On the edge of downtown, so reasonably quiet but still central. Got to make up 200 words!

Just finished a two night stay at the Listel in Van. The best word to express it would be "decent" the hotel is on the very busy and popular Robson Street so the location is great.

The property is covered in art, and tries to give off a modern flair, but I just did not feel it. The rooms while having big modern TVs feel kind of dated, it has old light switches, sinks and overall decor. The hotel is green conscious and at the same time had roll tissue paper that you would find in a public restroom, no boxed facial tissues, and no bar soap, only liquid soap in the the showers. Speaking of showers, same older dated feel in them.

We were lucky enough to stay in room 218 which has a lovely view of the garbage dumpster which is always busy with people looking through it, or looking in our window.

Overall for the price and location it was a decent stay, but next time it's probably worth a few dollars more for a bit more of the creature comforts.

On a side note I found that most taxis don't know where the hotel Listel is so we told them across the street from the Blue Horizon they seem to know where that is located.

Safe travels.

I found the hotel to be clean, the room with the king sized bed spacious and the bed was very comfortable, even the pillows! I would have preferred to have a phone however next to the bed instead of on the desk across the room. There were no supplied bar soaps or body lotion since everything was a liquid hand soap or dispenser provided shampoo and conditioner. The towels were very white, soft and luxurious. I did however find maneuvering over the tall tub somewhat difficult due to being short, older and there was no handrail to grab onto to assist the move.
Staff were helpful suggesting dining options however they recommended some of the most expensive places in town whereas an excellent restaurant was right across the street and not mentioned. Friendly staff. Would return again another time.

This is a great little boutique hotel. The staff were friendly, directed us to good restaurants, the room was clean and it didn't hurt that we were upgraded to a suite. It's located downtown within walking distance of the water and major shopping.

We had a conference with 65 ish College University Educators. The Listel was so helpful before the conference with planning. Immediately before the conference all details were assisted with... right down to printing that we had forgotten to get done, the Listel employee, took it and said "Let me look after that, what room would you like me to deliver it to?" The hospitality room was supplied and tidied and food stored for us... We had simply amazing service!!!! Very responsive... so helpful... and amazing gourmet food presented in a really lovely manner... And the AV person was very quick and helpful!! Lovely rooms for conference and food! Truly such good people to work with for a smoothly run conference!

We stayed here recently for the first 2 nights of our holiday in Vancouver. We walked from the train station and found the location really quiet but with plenty of restaurants nearby as well as being close to Stanley Park where we walked to on the 2nd day. Staff were friendly and the room was clean and quiet.
