A great advantage of the Listel Hotel is its location. It's a reasonable walk from the Sky Train's City Center station, even with carry-on luggage. (By the way, the Sky Train, Canada Line is definitely the fast, cheap, and easyily-navigated option for getting into the city proper from the airport.) So, coming or going from VYR is very doable. The hotel is located on Robson St., on one of the the city's main shopping drags, but in the residential West End so you'll not be overcome with too much noise and late-night traffic. There are many restaurants within walking distance, too. And, we found having a Whole Foods just a couple of blocks down Robson very convenient.

We also walked to Stanley Park -- a bit of a hike but not too bad. You can also walk easily to and from Hornby St. where there is an Avis office if you plan to rent a car for an out-of-city day trip. This worked well for us. Almost across the street is the Blue Horizon Hotel which is a major pick-up/drop-off spot for many tours (hop-on-off trolley, etc.) and you can request a pick-up there from Pacific Coach if you are doing the coach/ferry combo to Victoria. We did this and found it worked very well. The hotel pick-up cost a bit extra, but is worth it. This arrangement requires a reservation with Pacific Coach.

The Listel itself is fairly basic for it's rate structure-- we were comfortable but found nothing to rave about. I think their standard room is rather pricey for the level of amenities. (It would be nice to have at least a comp bottle of water when you arrive after a long day of travel!) The staff was consistently helpful and professional.

I think there is quite a big difference among what you get according to different room types -- e.g. we stayed in two different rooms; the second was much more posh and got us the comp French press coffee another reviewer mentioned, but that we were not offered in the first room. This might be worth checking out before you book.

We stayed at The Listel twice last March. Found it by chance online and it was great. Modern, smart layout and furnishings, and superb artwork everywhere. Good, helpful, unpretentious service, and the restaurant and bar are wonderful, plus there are so many great restaurants (all cuisines) within walking distance. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious. Loved the double mirrors with basin on one and countertop under the other. When we returned to Vancouver we thought we might try a different hotel, but it was so horrible we checked out immediately and went straight back to the Listel - and always will.
Easy walk to most areas of Vancouver downtown, and a bus or taxi will get you everywhere else. Very reasonably priced for what you get. A late review but well deserved.

Room Tip: 5th and 6th floors (maybe 4th too, not sure) on the north side give you great glimpses of the harbour and mountains through the cityscape.

We were on a gallery floor...our room was pretty basic actually. A few of the fixtures could use updating and our view was of a back alley and condos. We did like the vanity area seperated from the toilet and shower. And, also enjoyed the comp french press coffee delivered to the room on request...very good coffee! Breakfast was very good, and the location of the hotel is pretty decent for shopping.

We didn't care for lack of a self park option. Valet parking wasn't cheap either. We also noticed several taxes on our bill that I don't recall seeing at other hotels in the area. We might return, but maybe only if we leave our car at home.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Robson if you want a bit of a view.

We spent 2 nights in the Listel Hotel at the end of a 3 week stay in Vancouver and Vancouver Island. The decor of the hotel is stunning with museum and art floors and rooms. Our museum room on the 6th floor had great views of Robson Street and the skyline of the city. The room was spacious, well furnished and clean. It is a great hotel to explore downtown from and the seawall walk is within easy walking distance.
Staff were very helpful. The restuarant was under renovation and change of name when we were there.
We did not take breakfast in the hotel and there are good cafes serving great breakfasts nearby

Room Tip: We were on the 6th floor and near the lift. With windows closed the room was quiet
