Loved quaint charm of hotel and the history. Restaurant was good and convenient. Being on the bay was lovely and nice part of Vancouver l. Great option if you want quiet but with plenty of restaurants close by and jogging trails and Stanley Park.

The Sylvia hotel was the perfect place to stay on my trip to Vancouver. It was very clean and safe. The only thing i wish it had was fridges in the rooms. This would have saved me from eating out all the time....but I would still give the hotel all the stars!

Spacious room, Nice location, Quiet. People were nice.

Built in 1912 and had photos of the people. Very charming ☺️

No air conditioning or fan. Hot Hot Hot

I like the classic feel of the Sylvia. It feels like going back in time. And views of English Bay from our room and the dining room were beautiful.

This is a horrifically dated property, like a Ford Model T operating in day and age of Tesla. Update it, man ! Whats wrong with you guys ? From the classic keys you'd find a 100 years ago, to a ridiculous dated tub that wont drain water, to disgusting floors, to hallways full of construction material. Why do you even have your doors open ? Why ?

Amazing location within walking distance to a beach, bars, restaurants, parks etc. Staff were very welcoming and friendly to us and our dog who is very shy with new people. I requested a mini-fridge and staff were able to accommodate that request and had in my room within a few hours. The building itself is beautiful and the underground parking was worth the ~20$ a night for me. I can't wait to go on another road trip to Vancouver with my dog and stay here.

Pros: Old building charm, great views and wonderful area to spend the day with many restaurants and attractions within walking distance. Cons: No A/C so had to have the windows open and the area was noisy at night. Expensive rooms and connecting restaurant for breakfast.

Loved visiting the hotel that was in the book "Mister Got to Go" that we read to our son when he was little.

Hello, thank you for your review. Yes, this crazy heat wave has been hot, hot, hot! Thank you for your understanding. Although we do not have air conditioning, the windows in the room open and fans are in each room. Normally, we enjoy a cool ocean breeze. We hope you will stay with us again.
