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.

Worst Stay

This hotel is on Robson, but situated very far away from the shopping district. Our room was so hot we couldn't sleep, and when I asked the staff for help with this issue, they only told me to "turn the thermostat down." Thanks for nothing. The elevator floors were dirty and the bathroom in our room was the SMALLEST one I'd ever seen. You had to stand in between the toilet and the shower in order to close the door. Will not be returning.

did not meet a 4 star expectations

I'll start with the positive features: room service staff - Excellent! the food was good as well. Free wifi during your stay another plus. As a business traveller I expect a few more amenities from a 4 star hotel - there was no safe box in the room and no refrigerator! Unfortunately, I did not find the room to be considered clean either (the dust on the table was left there for 3 days!). The pillow quality was atrocious! Finally, turning on the AC was impossible since it made so much noise making it impossible to sleep! I would not stay again! Location is good - walking distance to the convention center.

Don't waste your time

Romantic weekend in Vancouver, but Hotel Listel wasn't anything special. I would pay a little more next time to stay at a nicer hotel.

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.

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 for a quick trip to BC

The room was cleaned but there was a lot of long hair in the sink! The bed was hard , the hall ways were dark. You have to use a key to unlock the elevator to get to your floor. The location is great and the staff very helpful. Nearby shopping, historic and scenic sites. No restaurant in the hotel but many small restaurants in the area. A bit over priced for the room.

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.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

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.
