My family rented an apartment in this building for two nights. The moment we opened the door, we realized that the pictures were taken at angles that made the room look much bigger than it was. We had a one bedroom place on the 5th floor and it was so small. For a couple without kids, it would have been fine for space. We ended up putting one of our kids in the main bedroom, the other one in the weird little office room that you could barely turn around in, and then we slept on the hide-a-bed.
Because we faced a busy street, we could hear traffic noise all night, especially on the weekend. It kept us up a bit.
Overall, the amenities were fine. The kitchen had everything we needed. The laundry was good. The view was nice. But as a family, we were on top of each other the entire time. There is a small glassed in little patio that seemed like a complete waste of space but my kids enjoyed using it as a dining room and play area.
The hotel staff were great and very friendly. And you can’t beat the location. It’s right across the street from Stanley Park, which is exactly where we wanted to be and was very convenient for us. It’s also right off Denman, which has lots of restaurants, coffee shops, etc.
The biggest complaint I have isn’t the space or traffic noise. It was the condition of the room. And from reading other reviews, it seems to be a common theme – they are really run down. Major dents and scratches on the walls. Old carpet. Stained furniture. Vertical blinds that didn’t cover the windows very well and let in a ton of light. A portable air conditioner just in one room. Very outdated bathroom with old tiles and strangely stained grout.
It was disappointing, especially for the price we paid. But then again, we were clearly paying for location.
Would we stay here again, even if it was just two of us? Probably not unless we got an incredible deal. Next time, I think we will try one of the other locations around there and see what they have to offer. Maybe all locations around the park are like this but can charge a premium. But I think we will take that chance and see.
We we looking for an executive apartment hotel for a week near Stanley Park. While searching, this place came up…must say that I was dubious at first, for we had never heard of it. The reviews on TA were good, and the hotel met all of our criteria. Well let me tel you that the hotel surpassed our expectations. Firstly, the hotel staff is courteous and extremely helpful. Secondly, the hotel is spotless and rooms, whilst a little tired, are clean, comfortable and well appointed and quiet. Thirdly, the hotel is central to everything, and if need be, the bus routes are a 3 min walk from the hotel. The rooms are cleaned daily, toiletries replenished, towels exchanged and laundry soap replenished everyday – yes there is an en-suite washer and dryer. The is free wifi and parking. There is also a gym and a pool (though we didn’t use them). ***insider tip: if you book directly through the hotel website, your breakfast is included for all room guests***. Lucky that we booked that way. We were thoroughly impressed with this hotel. Highly recommended for families, couples and business travellers. We will return. Great value for money
