Unlike the UK, not many places like that in BC. Will ponder on this a bit more but can't think of one right now!

The Kingston comes to mind. Has a pub/restaurant, is small etc.

I have a feeling you are using the the pub with rooms example to give us an idea of what you have in mind for accommodations. Are you really just looking for a simple place, and okay not to have a pub attached? I would suggest that here, you might not want to be trying to sleep above a pub, or anywhere in the immediate vicinity actually. (Although there's definitely something looking very alcoholic in your avatar! :-o)

Why don't you have a look at the YWCA Hotel which is reasonably priced, in a good location, highly regarded and highly suitable for a solo traveller. Reviews to the left sidebar in Vancouver Hotels.

www.ywcahotel.com

Another option you might look into is the HI Downtown hostel. Only the Downtown property though. They have a variety of room/bathroom configurations and there would be other people to meet during your stay.

You could also try the Sandman on Georgia which has Shark Club and Moxies attached to it but it is part of a chain.

Something to keep in mind, historically drinking establishments in BC needed to be in a hotel for the place to get & keep its liquor license. So you would often find beer parlours in "hotels" with "rooms" but they wouldn't be the best of accommodation, merely to keep the liquor license. Of course liquor laws have changed but if you are looking for accommodation that is reasonably priced, you won't find the charming little pubs with rooms like you get in the UK. Just look for a reasonably priced hotel & don't think in terms of its having a pub attached. I'd take Mufti's advice about the YWCA. Also

maybe a B&B might be an option?

In most parts of Canada Pub accommodations =dive, bad rooms etc. Sort of a holdback from the old drinking laws --some of those places are strictly the domain of people down on their luck, possibly with addiction problems etc. \

Be careful when choosing one.
