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.

Great location, facility and staff

Very pleased with hotel and staff. Room desk and nightstand does not have drawers so a lot of our stuff was scattered around. We were in Vancouver, BC to visit our Grandson who is a freshman at UBC.

Listel Hotel

Hotel is clean, although a bit old. Nice display arts. The hot water does not work properly so the shower is not very enjoyable. The hotel does post a sign saying they are fixing up the hot water system.

Great Hotel in Downtown Vancouver

A great hotel for any traveler type. Located almost directly in the center of downtown, it is surrounded by restaurants and shopping. Equally distant from Stanley Park, the waterfront and the Gaslight neighborhood, my wife and I walked to all. Only a short drive over the Granville Bridge will take you to the market. The hotel's interior appeared clean and museum-like, without appearing sterile. The customer service is first-class, even after making difficult requests. My wife and I stayed in a premium room, with window seat, large plasma TV and king size bed. Smaller bathroom with the sink outside of it, and my only complaint is that I am used to a softer mattress, while the Listel had more obviously spring mattresses. Still very comfortable. Also has AC which was great for the local weather at the time!

A couple of blocks from the hotel are bike shops, great for picking up and biking down to Stanley Park for a great bike route along the waterfront and the through the forests of the park.

We got a room with two queens for 4 adults to share. It was bit small. Nice television, well stocked bar and goodies. Complimentary coffee service in the AM. We went to museums, shopping, restaurants. We would have liked more info in the room on restaurant options. Taxis were easy to get.

Pretty nice for city center. Nice art.

Right downtown on Robson. Restaurants everywhere, lots of shopping, especially for the younger set. Hotel was really nice. My only complaint was the noise from the boilers or air conditioning or something. It was everywhere, even in the hall, and soounded like a fridge running - just a slight whine. I acknowledge being sensitive to sound, as i live in the woods, but I did end up sleeping wearing earplugs. The noise from the city was no problem - the hotel is well insulated from outside. The room decor was quite nice, and good mini bar and nice big modern tv etc. The parking was $35.00 per night - ouch!

Listel is Swell! Great Location!

If you are looking for a place close to the action but not too close, check out the Listel. You pretty much have access to everything. Stanley Park and the seawall trail are merely blocks away. There are awesome eateries on Denman (like ZAKKUSHI) and a gourmet grocery store (Urban Fare) with seating for a quick bite.

The SkyTrain (www.translink.ca) is an awesome and affordable way to get around. The Expo and Millennium SkyTrain Lines connect downtown Vancouver with the cities of Burnaby, New Westminster and Surrey. The Canada Line connects downtown Vancouver to the Vancouver Airport (YVR).
