Excellent experience for the price

The concierge service was great--friendly and very helpful. She provided us maps and recommended places to go since it was our first time in town. The bathroom in our room was smaller than we hoped it would be, but the size of the room itself and the service we received made us disregard that fact. For the location, size of room, and the price we got for that night, we would definitely stay here again next time we plan a visit to Vancouver again.

Nice, but you are paying for the location

Not much to look at from the outside as you walk in from a busy street into its well appointed but crammped lobby. Only 2 chairs to sit in if you were meeting someone or just wanted to watch the street activity. Checkin was easy and the staff very proffessional. Room card key required to get the elevators to move which is a good idea. Room was clean and well laid out with a flat screen TV mounted on the wall which freed up a lot of space on the dresser. Even though I was on the second floor the room was very quiet, but not much of a view. The only non bed spot to sit was a chaise lounger in the corner next to what appeared to be some sort of high art wine bucket. If you have childern be ware of the goodies on top of the fridge. $5 for a bottle of water, chocolate bar or bag of peanuts can add up fast. If you like walking around an internationl city with an exciting buzz this is a good spot. Very nice dining in the hotel and within walking distance. Never been to a Tim Hortons before but a 10 minute walk will save you about $15 on breakfast, and the seems to be a Starbucks on every corner.

I love this Hotel. The room is

I love this Hotel. The room is tastefully furnished and great beds. Shower is rather small and I can see how bigger people can knock themselves out in it. The eggs bene are like they said, the best in BC. Great location as well. Reception was efficient and House Keeping was super clean. Keep up the good work. Only 1 negative is that the serving staff in O Douls were not really friendly.

Excellent Place To Stay in Vancouver

What a pleasant surprise! We just finished an anniversary trip to Vancouver. And although we were only at the Listel for one night, it was nothing short of fabulous. We were able to check in three hours early. The front desk staff was amazingly friendly. They gave us great tips for how to spend that day, where to walk, what to do. AND there was a free wine tasting that night in the adjacent art gallery. The room was clean, professional looking, and had free wired internet access. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a cheaper downtown alternative to the larger chains. The Listel was great!

Really an excellent hotel

Listel Hotel in Vancouver is in an excellent location. I was particularly pleased about the staff. They have a lot of free stuff (a wine reception in the afternoon; an art gallery; an off-site gym at Steve Nash). About the only thing overpriced was parking ($26 + tax per night). If you don't need a car in Vancouver, it's perfect.
