This hotel has plenty of old world character and is with many modern conveniences. It is close to beach, many restaurants and is easy to get downtown or into Stanley Park. Large parking underneath at reasonable cost. Would recommend.

Convenient but very very tired hotel. Bathroom was an after thought - super poor design. Elevator queues were horrendous. Room had no AC (should have checked). Super budget hotel...staff were friendly and good though...

I call this the green hotel, for the obvious reason that's it's completely covered in ivy. It gives it a very cozy look. It's obviously an older establishment, with the smallish rooms that go along with that type of place. But it was extremely comfortable...More

That’s it really, lovely people, super hotel, large rooms and just a great location. The jack of aircon or ability to open windows fully to get air flowing just killed it for us in 32degree heat but apart from that it’s a great holiday hotel.More

Yes we have had a very hot summer like most places in the world suffering the same problem. Most guests tell us they love the fact that all the windows open to get fresh air instead of the air that is forced thru an air-conditioner,...More

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
