The Sylvia is a comfortable old hotel right on English Bay and a block from Stanley Park. It's the perfect place to stay in Vancouver, because of its warm welcome, its price, and above all, its location, which is in a neighborhood full of house and apartments, not the hustle and noise of, say, Robson or Burrard Streets, and not down where all the cruise ships leave. Yet it's easy to walk anywhere from here in greater Vancouver, or you can use the direct phone in the lobby to have a cab arrive in a minute. The rooms are large with comfortable beds; the bar is great; the restaurant bright and airy. We were there during the hot summer of 2013, and though the rooms lack AC, we stayed cool because the building dates from the early part of the last century and the thick walls kept the heat out. No place in Vancouver is inexpensive, but the Sylvia delivers first class comfort and service at a reasonable price. It's lovely and definitely a keeper.
