Good Experience

Had a pleasant stay at The Listel Hotel. The hotel is located right in the heart of Vancouver making it very easy to get around. If your looking for a clean, simple hotel with cheap rates per night then I highly recommend The Listel.

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.

Mostly good, but...

The hotel was right on Robson Street, which had tons of restaurant options. Overall the hotel was nice, quiet, and clean. Unfortunately, our key cards rarely worked in either the elevator or our room's door, meaning we often had to swipe it 10 times before it would work. Other people had similar problems. No adequate solution was provided. Very frustrating, and for that reason, probaby wouldn't go back.

Good location/disappointing room

We spent two nights at the Listel right before Christmas. The location was good- we walked to many sites, including Stanley Park and Granville Island- long walks, but nice. The room was very standard, artistic details limited to lobby and other parts of the hotel. The vanity area was extremely small and not well lit, making it a challenge for two people to prepare for the day. The staff was very helpful and courteous.

Looking back at Vancouver from Granville Island at night is beautiful. There is a wonderful farmer's market that sells all types of prepared food and the seating area at the end of the building affords one a breathtaking view of the city across the bay. Breakfast in the hotel is also very nice with big windows, good food, and helpful staff.

Listel for LOCATION

The great part about this hotel is the locaton. Everything else seemed mediocre, typical hotel. You're within walking distance of Coal Harbor, English Bay, and Stanley Park. I've been to many hotels and this is the 1st hotel that I had to ever insert my room key card to get the elevator moving??? With regards to the classic king size bedroom, there was leftovers in the mini fridge from the previous occupants that the maintenance staff forgot to clean. However staff was nice and quick to resolve that issue. The bathroom had shampoo conditioner and body wash dispensers on the walls, not the typical little bottles. Restaurant hotel was your average restaurant hotel. Overall it was not bad but definitely not 4 star in my book.

Bicycle rentals are everywhere. Hop on Hop off Bus stop is on the next block from the hotel. You can take a leisurely stroll from Coal Harbor to English Bay in like less than 30 minutes??? and Whole Foods about 3 blocks down from the hotel as well.

Fine art yes, but no shampoo

The staff are very nice. The hotel is unique with original art in the rooms and gallery displays on each floor. The location is nice, right on Robson Street near Shopping and the West End. The fitness center is small and very warm because the hot tub is in the same room. There is a fee which is not part of the room price for telephone calls and internet service.

The name O'Doul's sounds like a pub serving fish n' chips, but its an amazing fine dinning restaurant with experienced staff and great wines from Canada and around the world. I learned about food and wine at each meal.

Very Convenient

The hotel in on Robson, so it's close to everything. You can walk everywhere from it's location. There many food places to eat at. Stanley Park is just blocks away.I gave it a 3 star because I got a bad vibe from the first gentllement who checked us in and there was nothing that made the hotel or the services stand out for a higher rate. The rest of the staff were very helpful. I'm not picky with hotels, so Listel was fine for my boyfriend and I.
