Great location for exploring Vancouver

Perfectly situated on the famous-for-shopping Robson Street, and within a healthy walking distance of the harbor and other great sites. Our hotel room (for two women) was spacious and attractive, with comfortable queen beds. Beautiful art work throughout the hotel, Full breakfast buffet was an unexpected treat. The staff were friendly and helpful. When visiting beautiful Vancouver, I'd stay again at the Listel in a heartbeat.

On the decline

Still a nice hotel but has taken a fair drop since we stayed here a few years ago. The room was basically clean as far as sheets and towels, etc. went but there was a fair bit of dust built up on the head board which suggests housekeeping just does a quick pass through. But the location is great for the price and the staff are quite pleasant.

Super Location & Upscale Value

Repeat customer for this hotel. Great value (parking fees excluded!), super clean and crisp furnishings, and friendly staff. Location is walking distance to everything! You won't be disappointed. Perhaps better for couples than kids.

Perfect location

Pros: perfect location on Robson Street in the West End, within walking distance to countless shops and restaurants. Try Santouka a couple blocks away for the best ramen! It is also a short jog to Stanley Park and the marina. Cons: the parking is expensive ($37 after taxes per night), although there is in/out privileges and free valet. They bring the car up and you get the key from the front desk, so I didn't feel compelled to tip

Disappointing

Nice enough hotel but it is still a renovated older hotel. Decor is nice with extras in the way of artwork on the "gallery" floor we were on. Poor lighting in room, no fridge, and inadequate seating. Biggest issue was the $36 charge for valet parking. This isn't in the central core of Vancouver so I didn't expect to be compelled to accept valet parking and certainly not at that price. They make a big deal of the fact that about $7 of that is taxes, not their fault, but the remaining $29 is all theirs. Won't be back.

not good

Staff are slow and parking price is over charge $36 per night, the gallery room looks same as stander room but over charge for $20 more. The policy is hidden behind the reservation, Beware when you book this hotel, you might never get refund.

Beautiful hotel, awesome comfortable bed

Beautiful hotel, well located, near shops, restaurants and bars. The bed was sooo comfortable. Great service except for the housekeeping staff that came in twice in my room in the morning while i was still sleeping, kind a weird. Otherwise, amazing place.

Great location, average hotel

The interior of the hotel was classy and interesting with the different types of artwork. But, I don't see it as a 4-star hotel other than the price. When making the reservation, we chose a king-size bed, but upon arrival was given a queen-size bed in a room overlooking a back alley next to the dumpsters. Unfortunately, the dumpsters are emptied fairly early in the morning. The hotel only has six floors, so don't expect any stunning views. We did have a nice view of a man changing his clothes in the apartment next door as we walked down the hall to our room. The room is average-sized, the bed is fairly comfortable (even though it was smaller than we requested). Valet parking is pretty expensive, and it takes 15-20 minutes to have your car delivered. The staff is friendly and were willing to hold our bags for a couple of hours after we checked out so we could do some last minute shopping. The location is near several great stores and restaurants as well as about 1 block away from a Big Bus stop. However, next time I'll probably choose another hotel so I can have better views of Vancouver.

Good central base

Disappointing first impression but we were only in a standard room. Grew to like the Listel as it was easy to get around from here. Room facilities were fine -spacious, large comfy bed, good shower, but no communal lounge/public areas made it a place just to come back and sleep. The associated restaurant Forage is excellent and a real dining experience without being pretentious.
