The Sylvia fairly oozes old world character and charm. Its location is unbeatable, on English Bay, next to Stanley Park, an easy walk or short bus ride to downtown, with a wide variety of excellent restaurants and shops nearby on Denman, Robson and Davie Streets. My room was well-appointed and surprisingly large for the price - off-season rates are more than reasonable. The staff were pleasant and helpful. It was unfortunate that my stay was rather spoilt when I found and killed a cockroach in my room on the first day, and presented it to reception, thinking they would probably want to know about a possible infestation. They said they would take (unspecified) action, but I believe pest-control chemicals were introduced into the room in my absence, because every day thereafter (for four days) I woke up with a splitting headache, something I never get. They deny having done this, but to be on the safe side, I would recommend asking for a change of room if the same should happen to you. Either that or just don't report anything.
