Hotel was very conveniently located

Hotel was very conveniently located right in the heart of the town with a skytrain station just 5 mins walk away and frequent bus services passing the hotel. The area might be a little too lively for some tastes and noise at night might concern some especially if you are just over the night club attached to the hotel but it didn't bother me. The free wifi worked well.

Quiet and Friendly!

The staff at this hotel were extremely helpful and friendly. It's in a busy neighborhood but the room I had was on the interior and was extremely quiet. It's just around the corner from Davie Street which has many quaint coffee shops and breakfast places and its a 20 minute walk to the Harbor. Really a great value!

Cheapish alternative downtown.

No views or pool or decor or anyhing but the basics: a clean comfy bed, ac that works, bathtub with soap. I took a star off "comfort" because the shower does not stay hot, it oscillates from full hot to full cold. Other than that, sure.

Ummmm...

The staff was not great. Parking is an ISSUE. Couldn't get parking at 11 when we arrived in Vancouver. Went back at 3.30 to find out there wasn't anything available. 30 minutes after it was 'first come first serve'. At 6.30 after searching for parking went back to ask the front desk where I should park only to find out there actually WAS parking. And the guy that originally told me there was none was surprised that HE had said no. What confusion. What a headache. The room was small and the bed was super uncomfortable. The only good thing for us was location. Will not be staying here again.

Budget downtown option

Decently priced option that was a quick bus ride away from the convention center/Gastown/other downtown attractions. The staff were quite friendly and helpful. The wifi would go in and out without notice, and it sometimes felt like I needed to do a magical conjuring to get the hotel login screen to show up on my computer. Small inconveniences with the room, like the water kind of dribbling out of the shower and the toilet seat not staying up. But overall the room was spacious and served my needs while staying there for a conference.

Great, this is my second visit.

Good Staff, Room is good, excellent price. Location is so so, it is Granville street after all, there are a few adult shops, homeless, pawn shops around but on the other side there are a lot of coffee shops and little restaurants. I was traveling by my self so it was OK, family maybe I would find something else.

Nice for a weeknight getaway

Spending a Wednesday night at this hotel, we probably had one of the quietest nights along Granville Street - an area well known for being the strip of bars and clubs in Vancouver. Both vehicle and pedestrian traffic were definitely audible in our room on the second floor, but we were able to sleep through it. If the club beneath was open (Barcelona), I imagine the night would have been insufferable. For those planning on heading to the club and crashing somewhere afterwards, this hotel is perfect. For those in Vancouver for sightseeing etc, the location is good but you're probably sacrificing a good night's sleep for the price.

Good location

It is quite close to downtown. We could easily move from the hotel to all places. People are gently. The bed broke so they gave us another room.
