“Great location, clean room”

We really enjoyed staying at house-i. Best of all is the location, walking distance to much of downtown, including a few blocks in either direction to Robson and Davies shopping streets, and a few blocks further to the east and west seawalls. The olympic cauldron is located right at the end of this street on the eastern seawall! With the ideal downtown location does come some morning traffic noise, so bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper. There is no air conditioning, which means sleeping with open windows if it is hot out. It's nice to have your own bathroom (some of the small floor tiles were coming off, which I'm sure they will be fixing soon). Included is nice soft bedding, thick towels, and a dispenser in the shower with shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. The place is clean, and it is nice to have access to the kitchen and a sitting room. We felt safe in the neighborhood. The price is a bargain too, if you happen to compare it to hotel rooms anywhere in Vancouver. Although we never got to meet him in person, Kai was easy to communicate with by email and phone.

It looks like this place offers rooms on 3 floors. We stayed on the main floor, where there are 2 superior rooms (#5 and #6). We stayed in #5, but had a peak at #6 which looked a bit more spacious and had 2 big windows instead of one. The superior room photos on their website show #6, not #5. #6 might be a quieter room since you could open the back facing window instead of the side one, perhaps eliminating some of the street noise. However, #6 is also right beside the kitchen, so not sure if you might get some noise from the kitchen in the morning (#5 is located off the main hallway). It looks like the standard rooms are in the basement, while the family and patio suites are upstairs via a separate entrance and their own living room and kitchen.

We rented bikes from Cycle City Tours and Bike Rentals, located a few blocks away on Burrard near Davies. Next door to them is a nice little sushi place with tasty and very inexpensive sushi. The next day we walked a little further over to Bayshore Bicycle Rentals on Denman Street where we were able to rent bikes for only $16/ half day vs $30/ half day that many other places charged. Be sure to cycle the sea wall--amazing!

I'd recommend staying here and would gladly stay again.

Great Location! Very Clean room! Reasonable fee for the middle of down town.
The owner was super nice!!! I was in the half basement room. Big enough for one person.
But sometimes the upstairs were too much noise with children. I think they are living there. Except that, it's almost perfect.

“Great experience”
Reviewed April 6, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed here over a long weekend, it was a perfect location and a much better price than hotels in the area. We had a "superior" room, which was a spacious and clean bedroom with a private bath. Kai was prompt in communications and checked in to make sure things were going well with the stay. I would recommend staying here. Also, the nominal fee for parking is well worth it.

“good & comfy house in the middle of downtown!”

people found this review helpful

we spent a view nights in house i in august 2014. It's really more like a house than a hotel, so for me it was a more pleasant stay than in a hotel room. the double room wasn't that big but sufficient nevertheless. it has got an own bathroom with toilet and there's also a guest toilet down the corridor. The house itself has many other rooms like that, but we didn't hear the other guest. It's got a kitchen and a TV room to share for everyone and Wifi access.
you're only a few blocks away from for example Robson Street, so you're in the middle of downtown. Only thing is it gets a bit loud in the mornings because its being placed in downtown.
I'd definitely recommend house i !

We appreciated having this accommodation for part of our Vancouver stay. It was close to the places we needed to be and was reasonable value for money. Great to have access to kitchen facilities and an outside sitting area.
The bathroom tiles do need attention as they were glass and coming unstuck which had the potential to do some damage to feet but despite this we were comfortable at this accommodation and enjoyed the brief contacts we had with other people staying there.

We stayed in a standard room. The place is nice, bedrooms are sparse. There is a shared Tv room and kitchen. Bed was not very comfortable but all in all a nice stay for the price. Definitely a good location.
