It was cheap. But they charged me extra.. Still fighting that.
It smelled so bad (mold), windows were super old and it was super cold (also no screen in it and it's a big window.. Dangerous), staff was cranky when I asked for another blanket, and I couldn't get wifi in the room (they told me sit by the elevator). Lame
Parking felt safe
Bad location. Drug users all around outside
hotel is very normal considering the 'mixed' surroundings. very good value for the money, staff is exceptionally helpful, have good breakfast and wi-fi. the shower, toilet, and sheets, and the hotel overall are clean. compared to the bunch of weird folks on W Hastings, the hotel guests are perfectly normal people. the small size of the room was not a problem for me, just enough, but wouldn't go there with kids.
the carpet is old and even if cleaned, smells, some other things like the sink and bed cover are also old but ok. the bar downstairs is okay, they have some food there, the breakfast is good, but it smells like cigarettes and is dark. the street, W. Hastings is the worst in Vancouver, very depressing, do not walk there, best to take the bus - 14, 16, 20 will take you downtown and back, or a cab - only about 6-7 bucks one way. if u walk, pick a different street
Room had private bathroom, was clean. Friendly staff. Hotel quite close to city center and waterfront.
The neighborhood is really terrible. It is very sad to see all these homeless people and junkies on basically the whole of East Hastings street. However I did not feel they were dangerous.
The lobby had some cool old touches that could have just as likely come from inside of it as opposed to being bought. Vintage feel through building.
Rooms were tiny to say the least, my wife and I barely had room to stand once we had our only suitcase inside. Bar downstairs is great if you're into that, but considering we were only staying to leave early in the morning the noise of people leaving in inebriated states was an annoyance. Will echo other posters as well about the quality of the surrounding neighborhood. Had a real concern that my vehicle wouldn't be intact the next morning. Only recommended as a super cheap option reasonably close to the city center.
Convenient walking distance to Rogers Arena. Pat's Pub downstairs has great food and beer and a wide range of music. There was afternoon live jazz during the day and a metal/punk show late at night. Both were great. I would definitely stay here again. It's only 4 blocks from the Gaslight district if you're looking for places to go out nearby. The room was clean and the staff was extremely professional and polite.
Neighborhood is a bit sketchy, but not in a dangerous way. Just lots of homeless people doing their thing on the street at night. Had no problems walking back to the hotel after midnight.
Interesting hotel, felt like it had a lot of history. The lobby was inviting and intriguing, with an upright piano, neatly arranged seating furniture, and an old telephone switchboard that caught my attention among many other things spread around. It was obvious this hotel is a bit on the older side (I think the front guy said it was pushing a century) yet the front (staff) were as helpful as they could be. It was affordable, had WiFi and cable TV, both which helped my stay more enjoyable. Location was decent, within walking distance of the Pacific Central Station, and many stores and restaurants along Main Street. A little farther walk to downtown, but buses were also available in the area.
Unfortunately, and not because of the hotel's fault, but the surrounding area is a harbor for the homeless of Vancouver. Even though I am single and did not feel threatened, I can see how this would be a very big turn-off and/or safety concern for others. Also one morning room service woke me up a little earlier than I would have liked, but other than that, no complaints.
Excellent value for money so close to downtown Vancouver. Interesting historic hotel with a European feel. Very helpful staff.
The immediate vicinity is seedy. However, nobody bothered us on the street.
A bit noisy at times from traffic below could be fixed with double glazing
