      Room I stayed in was small, but clean, cosy and comfortable. Staff are friendly, nice atmosphere. Breakfast is delicious for a continental. I had to share bathrooms on second floor, but was aware of this before I came. They are very clean, modern and it wasn't an issue to access them although may be if the hotel is fully booked. They are painting interior at moment, but this is causing minor disruptions only. It's so close to Gastown, Canada Place, Waterfront Station, Library Square, Vancouver Sky Tower, Chinatown and BC Place plus any other number of attractions I could mention. Location wise it's across from the Salvation Army house, but this wasn't an issue for me. I would be happy to stay here again in the future.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Victorian Hotel Vancouver

      Baby friendly, clean and nice

      from

      We really appreciated our stay in this hotel. The room wasn't huge, but was very nice, quiet and superclean. Same thing for shared area. The breakfast was good for all tastes.

      The personnel was nice and very helpful for baby's stroller storage. So for the price it's a very good choice in Vancouver.

      The location is good, you can go downtown or "chinatown" only in few minutes walk. I don't have any critic against this Bed & breakfast. I'll stay again in this one if I need to go back in Vancouver.

      Nice hotel, not so nice neighbourhood

      from

      Last September we paid our first visit to Vancouver. We decided to stay in a double room, bay window, private bathroom (it wasn't ensuite). Our room was nice and sunny not a great view but comfy bed etc. So all in all the hotel is great value, nice staff etc. The problem is the location - I felt the neighbourhood around the hotel is very unsafe, especially if you are a tourist! There were a lot of drunks, drugs etc around the hotel - in fact we took a turn to go to Gastown for an evening meal and had to come back as we had to go through what you'd term the wrong part of town to get there! I'm not unused to dealing with this - still when it's not your own city it's hard to tell how unsafe you are It made our stay in the Victorian almost stressful so next time I would stay nearer to Stanley Park etc - it's a lot more pleasant.

      A Great Find

      from

      My husband and I visited Vancouver in September. I found the hotel after some research on the internet and not having visited Vancouver before I was a bit apprehensive. I need not have worried. We were greeted by a very nice receptionist who checked us in. Unfortunately there had been a mix up with our room and we were not given the room that we should have had on our first night. However, the room, I have to say, was fantastic with two queen beds and a fab bathroom. The next day we transferred to our room for the rest of our stay. It was the kingsize room. Wonderful. A bay window, a comfortable bed with nice linen and covers. The bathroom was slightly smaller but, hey, it was spotlessly clean.

      The breakfast was complimentary and the coffee was the best we tasted in Vancouver (and as all you people know the Vancouverites like their coffee!!).

      Although the hotel isn't in the best end of town, it certainly isn't in the worst. We enjoyed our stay there and would definitely go back.

      Just average

      from

      Nice historic building, but in very edgy part of town with rundown buildings just around the corner. Nicely decorated rooms, very clean.

      Evening front desk service was good. Morning front desk service wasn't very helpful, and a little bit rude.

      Dont tell a soul

      from

      I stay at the Victorian Hotel every time I visit Vancouver. I get a room with a bay window, share a bath and hit the town. Tastefull decor, hardwood floors, most comfortable beds in town with down comforters and always clean sheets. Likewise, the bathrooms are always clean and seem quite private. I hardly ever run into another guest in the hallway - save breakfast in the mornings which is unremarkable.

      This hotel was renovated five or six years ago and still has the feel of a new establishment. It is conveniently located in downtown Vancouver, walking distance to shopping, bars and restaurants. I dont know why I'm writing this review as The Victorian Hotel is supposed to be my little secret. Dont tell a soul.

      Comfy bed

      from

      Stayed March 2003 for 3nts. Locked out upon midnight arrival(!), plumbing problem in one of the bathroom, but I remember most was a comfy bed. If you demand excellence in every way, find somewhere else (with more dollars), but comfy bed w/simple bkft is good enough for this price.

      Nice Charming Little Room

      from

      My husband and I stayed here last August. It's a restored European-style Victorian-era charming hotel. It's very reasonably priced--the room was tiny and we shared a bathroom, but the room was cute and clean and so was the bathroom. The manager on duty when we checked in at 2 a.m. in the morning was charming (and a little tipsy!) and everyone else was friendly, too. You will have to pay for parking. It's walking distance to various tourist destinations and restaurants. The website is accurate.

      Charming and great location.

      from

      We found the Victorian Hotel through the Lonely Planet guidebook. It is such a charming little European style hotel, with great furntiure and shared bathrooms. The owners gave us a lovely tour and a choice of rooms. We stayed in the Bay Window room for $89 plus tax, with a great king bed and a big tv. We think those are the best value rooms. There was a nice sink and the bathrooms are down the hall. Some rooms have private bath but we were on a budget. The service was excellent and they even brought us a hairdryer. Breakfast was small with coffee, juice, and a muffin, but was free and very fresh! The nice thing was that the staff were friendly, and the hotel was very clean and secure.

      We parked our car in their private iron gated lot which was convenient and fair for $10 day. We left the car in the lot and walked everywhere downtown. We are definately coming back next time we venture to Vancouver. We even told our parents to go there.

      Warning

      from

      The hotel was nice at first; however the service was absolutely terrible and not from the front desk clerk however from the owners themselves. They were extremely unfriendly and quick to take our money. If visiting Vancouver, for a good time, do not stay here

      Charm and Affordability

      from

      bathroom is very nice but down the hall breakfast is tiny bagels and coffee a handy inner city location and very nice renovations to what used to be a real dump. charming decor comfy beds best feature: BUDGET FRIENDLY

      At last, I was ready to jet off on another leg of my adventure! A change of scenery, certainly a change of climate for a few days. I couldn't wait for my break from all my hard work over the last 3 months in Winnipeg. The next few posts will hopefully be more photos than me writing, which I'm sure a few of you will be glad to hear...as they say, …

      We unpack in our new apartment, and I have the first shower. And what a shower. It has about a dozen different nozzles, and I flood the entire bathroom, which leaks onto the 200 yr old inlaid parquet flooring in our bedroom. We sop up the mess with every towel and roll of paper in the place. The Rosswalds have arrived! Now the fun is figuring out how ...

      ... some awesome stores, and lots of amazing people…

      Do I attempt perhaps to avoid this region if I am walking home from the downtown core when I am not feeling like taking a bus or bike…No, not really…I am confident that they are just good people who ran into horrid situations which forced them into where they are now – so I say, give them a break and just leave them alone and you will not be bothered as well.
