Enjoyed staying in a residential area of Vancouver as opposed to the high rise style hotel facilities. It has a laid back casual atmosphere that appeals to my style of travel.

Overall not a bad place to stay when on a budget. Staff is frendley and the outside was well maintained, the only downside is the rooms could use some updating as in beds, newer bedspreads, furniture, and paint.

Unique and a true experience of an authentic Vancouver building! I got a room with a private bath and it was definitely worth it. Amazing location! Wishing 15-30 minute walk to beaches, Stanley Park, water front and pier, as well as downtown Vancouver.

The overall condition of the hotel needs a complete upgrade.

Easy walk to down town, even trailing my big case. Shared facilities were fine especially as they were opposite my room on the ground floor. No lift but ok down stairs. Sitting room with continuous coffee made up for not having this feature in the room. We had a wash basin which was good. Reasonable price and very pleasant staff . I would stay again.

Location was good. Next to Stanley Park and a lot of great restaurants. The WiFi only works in the lobby. There’s no air conditioning so if you’re staying during the summer it’s going to be hot. The bed was HORRIBLE! Extremely uncomfortable, just a box spring with a topper on it, no mattress! Bathroom was so small you couldn’t turn around in front of the sink you have to walk backwards to get out and I’m skinny.

Easy to use facility. Great close to downtown location. It was an easy walk to shops and local businesses

Location-location-location! Centrally located but on the quiet street. Walking distance to everything. Great places to eat within 5-10 minutes for every budget. Although the hotel a bit dated, it's very charming. There is a cozy sitting area with complimentary coffee and tea. Our room was spacious and clean. Exceptionally helpful stuff. If we ever back to Vancouver, will definitely stay at this hotel again.

The main reason why I booked this hotel was that it was within walking distance to Stanley Park. The Buchan is in a nice neighborhood and an easy walk to shops and restaurants. No need to have a car to get around. Staff was friendly and helpful.

The hotel was close to great restaurants and not far from Stanley park. We were lucky to find free parking right across the street, as the hotel parking was sold out. The neighborhood was very nice.

Enjoyed our stay. Would definitely stay here again. Close to Stanley Park.

great, all around, nice neighborhood, friendly staff, close to park & main street, etc.

Staff was very helpful. Room was clean, efficient, bed a little hard. Shower down the hall worked out fine. No lines, clean.

There is no elevator, air conditioner or pool, but a fan and a ceiling fan were in the room. The walk-in closest was phenomenal. It is in a very nice and quiet neighborhood. All the buildings are very well-cared flower garden out front. Our stay was very pleasant. Only three blocks from Stanley Park and within walking distance to many nice restaurants. It is also very reasonably priced. I would stay here again and will recommend it to friends. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a very nice sitting room downstairs with coffee and hot water for tea in the morning.

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights. When we first checked-in the receptionist was very pleasant. She was very kind and answered all the questions we had. The hotel is near a main street with a lot of places to eat and a safeway. There is also several bus stops near by. The rooms are really warm so we quickly turned off the radiator, after that it was fine. There was no phone in the room to call to the front desk but they always have someone at the front desk. The room we had had a private shower. Unfortunately, the shower did not drain well at all. The shower floor got filled with water. In order to prevent the water from flooding I had to turn on and off the water while showering.

The hotel is well located in the heart of the Stanley Park area of downtown Vancouver. The hotel is old, and while the rooms are clean, they are small and in dire need of an update. The bathroom was the smallest I have ever encountered in a hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful.
