For the price, this is a great deal. Located in the heart of downtown vancouver, this is an apartment building/hotel in one. Rooms have a full living room, kitchen and dining room - its the most space I've seen in an urban location. Beds/linens are comfortable, and the room is very clean. The few negatives that I have are that... More

These apartments are brilliant, they are spacious, stylish and upmarket - you really couldn't ask for more! The service here is lovely and friendly and everyone is full of smiles.

I stay at the Carmana Plaza whenever I come to Vancouver now and rate it amongst the world's best kept secrets in serviced apartment stays. It has spacious rooms and I love the little study and kitchen which provide everything I need for a business trip. The staff are friendly and helpful and the deli across the road has everything...

This was great accommodation in a very good location. Beds were very comfortable, unit very clean and staff helpful. The urban fare over the road was great for supplies and breakfast. This hotel is very easy walking distance to downtown, Gas Town, the waterfront and Stanley Park. We stayed in a two bedroom suite with four single beds - suited... More

Again we enjoyed our stay at the Carmana. Lovely welcome from Desam Fong who also acknowledged our email when we thought we may have been late checking in due to the winter chill across Canada Rooms still as we remembered some years ago but they are going to be refurbed which will make them even better as there are now...

Location is tops! Short walk to all shops, restaurants etc. you're literally at the heart of the city but because Vancouver is generally a peaceful quiet one you don't feel it. The suites were lovely. Modern and spacious plus impeccably clean. It came with a full serviced kitchen plus a beautiful balcony facing the skyscrapers. The staff were very helpful,... More

The location is great--close to the business district and an easy walk to Stanley Park. The one-bedroom condo is a good alternative to the downtown hotels. The kitchen has a full sized fridge and stove. If you want to self cater, the Urban Fare grocery store across the street has a great selection of gourmet ingredients and prepared foods.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
