Viva Suites
Reviewed September 5, 2011

What a great alternative to staying in a hotel for a month in Vancouver. The apartment was very spacious with full facilities allowing us to dine in or out at our convenience. The location was perfect being close to Granville Island (check out the public market for food) and only a few blocks from the downtown areas of Robson Street and Coal Harbour with English Bay and Stanley Park both a few minutes away. On-site parking and cycle storage lockers made for easy living and we felt very comfortable with the whole set-up.

I had a trip to Vancouver that was one week in length. I did not like the prospect of staying in a hotel, and was delighted to find Viva. The room was exceptional, felt much more like home than a hotel room, the service was top notch, and the location was perfect. I am a confirmed user of their service and will use it each time I return to Vancouver. Bob Barnum

We stayed over Christmas and had great service from the team after our outward flights were delayed by two days. We were in the 4 bed apartment on the 14th floor. Each bedroom has access to a balcony and vast amounts of closet/wardrobe storage. With a huge lounge and a snug with its own fire we had plenty of space to spread out and relax - and when top-end hotels still continue to charge for WiFi the free access was a big plus with teenagers. Inclusive underground car parking is also a bonus. All in all we would definitely return when next in Vancouver and would recommend Viva Suites to other visitors.

I am happy with my stay in Viva Suite. The suite (one bedroom with den) is spacious for the price, good security system, free carpark is convenient.
Location of the hotel is good, esp if one have to drive across Lion Gate Bridge frequently, instead of driving through downtown and get caught in traffic jam, can drive along Beach Avenue and cut through via Stanley Park.

We were extremely happy with the spaciousness of the accommodation and layout of our apartment [903 ]. The facilities were excellent and the apartment was cleaned regularly ---- towels and bedlinen changed.

The staff were particularly helpful when their advice was sought .

It was a definite plus to have a parking space underground of the suites.

We shall definitely return next year.

Viva Suites provides exceptional service! You get the amenities of a hotel except with the comfort of your own apartment. We had TWO balconies a fireplace and there were even heated floors! It was a great experience, friendly staff, free parking and housekeeping. We stayed for two months and it was a great experience. I will be back next time I'm in Vancouver
