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.

... day and the scenery was just beautiful. If I hadn’t already fallen in love with Vancouver, I had now. The peace and quiet of the park, the water, the fancy skyline, the sun bronzing our faces and the amount of hilarious ‘I-almost-crashed-right-into-the- water’ – moments made it an unforgettable day. We had rented the bikes for the whole afternoon and had yet another sushi dinner before we brought them back to Spokes. No one was ready to go ...
... a train is far different than what occurs at an airport. We checked our two large bags, but they weren't weighed and if they went through a security screening we didn't see it. No one even mentioned the backpacks or rolling carry-on bags that we were carrying. The only contents that seemed to be of concern was fresh fruit so we were good to go.

... America and compare it to my own. The Bus took around 4 hours and at the border you were just required to get off with your bag then get your passport stamped, it wasn’t overly complicated.
After Getting into Downtown Vancouver I took the Sky train to where my hostel was located and with a little exploring soon found it, the hostel was definitely a party hostel with a bar downstairs and several communal areas. After having a Tim Horton’s, recommended to me by ...
