TravelPod Member ReviewsBuchan Hotel Vancouver
The Buchan Hotel is on a luscious tree lined street next to a charming garden but my heart sank as we entered the lobby. It looked quite shabby and poorly maintained. I was apologizing to my travel companion and kicking myself for not making a good choice. The TV was smaller than my iPad and had only a few awful stations. Tiny bath with only a shower and barely room to get around the beds.
We went out immediately in search of food and discovered an ENDLESS array of multinational cuisines less than a block away. These all looked a bit shabby as well.
HOWEVER: That night the same Denham Street, a half block away, lit up the night. The street was packed with Ferraris, Mazeratis, Bugattis, Bentleys and a few humble Porsches. Neon lights blazed and young hipsters threaded their way up and down the street in search of the perfect meal. And they didn't go far to find it. I discovered a large percentage of the restaurants I had placed on my "go to" list were with a block or two of the Buchan Hotel. Handmade Asian noodles, sushi bars, Greek, Italian, and countless subcultures were fully represented. Stanley Park was just a few blocks away and a walk of several blocks in either direction took us to the water. Robson Street, shopping mecca of Vancouver, was just two blocks.
AND, as far as the hotel goes, it was clean, the towels were fresh and fluffy, the linens were immaculate, the staff was extremely helpful. Coffee available in the lobby in the morning. The Wi-Fi was a bit wobbly but they took off the $2 charge when we asked.
SO: If you are looking for a relatively inexpensive place to sleep in an ideal location, try the Buchan Hotel.

... not sure if we will see snow, as its pretty warm.
We did our usual walking for the rest of the day, exploring the city, its a easy city to get around.
Russell bought new American jeans for only $29 and socks as he left his at home!!!, socks that is. It has been a bit of a hassle getting our photos to load, so hope this goes ...
... he was flying with another friend from his former high school. His American name is Justin and her name is Rona (which sound very close to her Chinese name. And during our conversation in the waiting area, they offered, that once we got to Beijing, they would like to show me around Beijing, and these kids have really kept their word. These are two real nice kids (see picture below). But ...
... so we ordered an Indian (local cuisine and all that...). The delivery driver was rather fascinated that we were British and loved it when we tipped him with a shiny £2 coin. It appears the Canadians have borrowed something from their neighbours when it comes to food: the size. Two curries and two portions of rice (three, actually, as they gave us an extra one for free) lasted us two nights. Full up from half a curry and half a portion of ...
... from pedestrians and cars; harbour views while I rode; off-road trails amongst beautiful old trees; friendly people (I did get lost once or twice after I'd left the main path and had to seek advice); and gorgeous sunshine. What's not to love? We arrived in Vancouver on Thursday evening after two days of train travel on the Rocky Mountaineer. We were pretty tired and were therefore delighted when we discovered a guitarist ...
