Just what was needed!

Coming off a cruise for a one-day lay-over before heading home, the Listel Hotel provided just what we needed upon our return. Clean, quiet, and within walking distance to a ton of varied restaurants and /shopping needs, free landline calls into the US, free internet access including a computer for access as we traveled without one. Would stay there again next time in Vancouver.

Awesome!

We loved our stay at The Listel. The staff were so helpful and kind. We arrived late at night and the staff helped us check in and get settled quickly. They provided us with a map of Vancouver, explained how to get around town, suggested great restaurants, and made dinner reservations for us. We highly recommend visiting Vancouver and staying at the Listel is a must!

Very Coo, well-located Hotel

The Listel was one of th best value hotels i have experienced. unassuming from the outside and lobby, the hallways with artwork led to a surprisingly well-furnished room with great style touches, a nice bathroom with great products and excellent white fluffy towels, and a huge bed with quality linens. the view of the harbor was nice, and the proxinity to tenis and the entire Stanley Park and the best shopping in town makes it the best location for tourists and business travellers. the food from Delaneys downstairs was delivered hot and quickly, and the staff were consistently professional and friendly at any time of the day or night. a very nice touch; you need a room key to go up to the guest floors, which would be very comforting for single travellers.

Great location and very comfortable

This is a great hotel in a wonderful location in downtown Vancouver. The room was spacious and clean-- with very modern furnishings. Yet, it was still warm and inviting. I would definitely recommend it.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Robson gets all the attention but head to Denman or even Davie streets. Both are a moderate walk from the hotel and offer equally interesting shopping and dining options.

Friendly Staff, Comfortable Rooms

The Listel Hotel Staff met all of our needs. We had forgotten to request a king-size bed, and they found a room for us the next night with a better view. When the zipper broke on one of our bags, the staff helped us find the nearest repair shop. They also looked online for the bes bus routes for use to a museum. The restaurant was friendly and the food flavorful--but it's on the more expensive side. Fortunately the Listel is located in the heart of Vancouver's entertainment/shopping/food district, so there were plenty of other options available.

The staff was very helpful and polite. We loved the art. The room were clean and they brought us a complimentary pot of coffee in the morning. We will stay there again. It was a great location as well.

Great honeymoon hotel!

The bed was the most luxurious place we have ever slept in. The location was conveniently located in the middle of Robson Street. The hotel is in walking distance to many of Vancouver's main attractions. The rooms were clean and the air conditioning was welcoming. There were a lot of dining options. The staff was friendly but not invasive. The maids were chirper.

Plan to spend a few days exploring Stanley Park if you are into hiking and walking the seawall. Watch the dolphin show at the aquarium. Don't bother with Canada Place.

Great Hotel downtown

I went to vancouver for a conference over the weekend, and stayed at Listel. It is on Robson St in the middle of many eateries and shops, and within walking distance to Stanley park. Great location. One of the best prices for the area. The rooms are a little small but has everything I needed and very comfortable bed. Would stay there again without hesitation.

Great Get-away Location

We had a great romantic trip to Vancouver, and the Listel added to the experience. It is a good value for nice rooms and prompt service. O'Douls, the bar/restaurant in the hotel, was a great place to un-wind after the long drive to get to Vancouver. Pricey for what you get, but still it was a wonderful location with live Jazz. Parking at the hotel was $60 for the weekend, but the car is safe.
