The Moda was a nice small hotel especially when you want to immerse yourself into downtown Vancouver nightlife and culture

My wife and I, along with another couple, stayed at the Moda while in Vancouver the night before our plane departed Canada. We were drawn in by the relatively low price compared to other hotels in the area. The pictures made the hotel seem very modern and trendy. After staying there I would say that it is more boutique than modern, but overall we were pleased with our stay. The Moda is located in a more upscale area of downtown Vancouver and away from a lot of the other tourist hotels (also away from the tourist attractions). We enjoyed not having to walk more than a few blocks to restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. The area felt safe even late into the evening and had a lot of pedestrian traffic. Our room was basic, but really all we were looking for was a place to sleep since we had planned to be out and about in Vancouver. Many other reviews mention how loud the hotel was, but we didn't find this to be the case. Being and older, renovated hotel you could hear water from other rooms and doors closing in the hallway, but it wasn't any worse than other hotels. The room had double glass windows, both of which could be opened, to help buffer the outside noise.

Basically, if you're looking for a plush, trendy place to stay in Vancouver the Moda probably isn't the best fit. But, if you want a unique hotel and a good area, with a decent price, it's a good choice in our opinion.

Room Tip: The inside rooms might be quieter than those facing the street.

Moda Hotel is a very accessible and chic hotel.. Loved the decor and the hotels room and its essential amenities as well... It was just what I needed for a visit in Vancouver..

Based on the other reviews, yes the walls are thick and you can really hear your neighbors talking but it didn't disturb our sleep after a full day of exploring Vancouver... if you are a very light sleeper, then the noise might keep you up at night.

Overall, I would go back regardless of the noise. The hotel met my requirements: I needed a nice, chic and safe place to sleep in downtown Vancouver. Also, the staff were ALL very helpful with our queries, requests, etc...

Overall a very nice experience!

Stayed: December 2010, travelled with friends

When returning to Vancouver after a side trip to Victoria, we chose the Moda Hotel for three reasons: its proximity to the Skytrain to the airport, the good price, and our desire to explore a different part of Vancouver: up-and-coming Yaletown. Based on Tripadvisor reviews, we had contacted the reception and asked to be put in a quiet room that had already undergone their soundproofing renovation. The hotel did indeed put us into a quiet room; we could hear neither our neighbors nor too much of the traffic outside. So ask for a soundproof-renovated room when making your reservation. Our room was very bright and had an interesting color scheme, but showed a bit of wear and tear. We noticed the slightly slanted floor in this old building, but considered it an interesting feature. Yaletown was fascinating to explore, and it was hard to pick a restaurant given all the great choices.

Thank you for choosing Moda Hotel during your stay in Vancouver. We are happy to announce that we have now completed all of our soundproofing renovations and it certainly made a difference. It is an old, almost heritage building, over one hundred years old, so it does have its corkiness and funkiness to it. We are glad that you enjoyed our locations as it is walking distance to all the atractions in downtown.

We hope to welcome you back to Moda on your next visit to Vancouver.

Warmest regards,

Moda Hotel,
General Manager

Had booked to stay in this hotel last week (July 2011). Upon arriving, was informed that the booking had been upgraded to a "Suite across the Street".

The front desk was quite disorganised, but after some wait time, the clerk walked outside the door, pointed across the street (at a door i couldn't really see) and commented that the room was "over there".

Making my way across the street, with suitcases, i discovered that the hotel had added a few rooms into a local carpark!! (the elevator is actually labelled Parkade). As a result, the rooms have no hotel presence (not the most secure feeling), no sound proofing and they resemble hostel style accommodation eg the shower forms part of the room, so much that you can see the shower head from the bed!

Needless to say, this level of accommodation did not meet my expectations. In fairness to hotel management, they refunded the full cost of the accommodation upon this being explained to them.

The Manager noted that the rooms offered "European style" accommodation. However, having stayed in many many hotels across the world, including Europe...this couldn't be further from the truth.

If Management wish to continue to provide this cheap style of accommodation, they should lower their prices to Hostel equivalent prices.

Dear Livmac,

We thank you for your comments. The suite you were " upgraded" is not built into an existing parking lot, it is part of the luxury apartment high rise which was completed just last year. We have many media guests as well as entertainment industry guests who use us on a continual basis and this is the first time we are hearing a feedback as such as these rooms you were upgraded are our private VIP rooms. However, as you have mentioned we have refunded you fully as a good gesture as you were not comfortable with any option we have provided you and we wanted to give you that courtesy.

Thank you,
General Manager

This hotel is walking distance to pretty much all of downtown. It is very close to the sky train which is easy to get to and from the airport. The conceige was very helpful. Uva is the wine bar attached to the hotel. You should have a drink if you have time.

Room Tip: 4th floor is close to business center with free internet.

Moda Hotel, very cozy Inn. Price was very nice. Parking if you need it is right across the street in a secured ramp. We stayed on fourth floor. Rooms were all recently remodeled.
Very nice job in my opinion. Very limited street noise. Yes you hear some, you are after all in a large city. Book the stay directly with the front desk, best deal to be had that way.
Very close to a lot of different areas to visit. Nice, easy walk to Rogers Arena. Very near to Robson. Check them out. We will return here...

Room Tip: Call the property directly.
