“Great location, reasonable rates, wonderful staff.”
Reviewed 25 October 2009

This wonderful little hotel is located in a quiet residential area just a few blocks from Stanley Park. It has no elevator and some of the rooms are European plan, so we are talking no frill here. There is a wonderful restaurant next door and it is just a few blocks from the West End shopping district. I only stayed one night, but the staff on both shifts I encountered were incredibly nice and very helpful. I would definitely stay return.

This was our second visit to the Buchan. The first being 1988. This time we stayed prior to a Alaskan cruise. We love the area as its close to Stanley Park for walking and just seconds from a vibrant cafe and restaurant area. A big thanks to the desk clerks. We flew in about mid-day and asked if we could leave our bags in storage until check in at 3pm but the room was ready so we were able to move in early. The clerk the next day was more than happy to arrange a cab also.
Rooms a little warm but the fans along with being able to leave our second floor window open during the evening fixed that.
Hopefully it will not be another 20 years until we come back next time.

The upper floor is far too hot when temperatures rise. No aircon here. Location is perfect.

We stayed in this hotel during our travel to Alaska.
There are many young people, so if you want to socialize it's the right place.
The Hotel it's a little old, but our room was very clean. It's very easy to walk to the Stanley Park and downtown from it.

Good location, helpful and nice staff, hotel a bit tired around the edges. Bed comfortable, but room a bit noisy and with a slight musty smell. Bathroom had some mould on the tiles, smell, etc. A good place for a single not spending too much time in the room. TV very small.

Clean, comfortable and well located.

Definately not a luxury hotel but well maintained and boasting a friendly and helpful staff.

An excellent value for the money.

Nice little hotel,very close to stanley park.Parking is a problem an once the parking in the street runs out you have to park in a parking lot about 2 blocks away.This isnt to far but it seems if you leave anything in the car the window will be smashed and your stuff taken.The front desk staff were lovley and went out of their way to help us.
