Lighthouse Park

Dnes padla volba na Lighthouse park v severní části Vancouveru. Až téměř k parku nás dovezl autobus, který je svým způsobem i vyhlídkový - nejprve překonává obrovský Lions Gate Bridge, ze kterého je nádherný výhled na moře i město a poté pokračuje podél pobřeží, kdy vidíte všechny parkujíc …

Capilano Pacific Trail

Pro začátek si vybíráme jednu z lehčích stezek poblíž města. Capilano Pacific Trail začíná na pláži v severní části Vancouveru, kam se dá snadno dostat autobusem. Pokračuje podél řeky lesem a chvílemi spíše pralesem, až dojdete k přehradě Cleveland, sloužící jako zásobník pitné …

Dnešek byl velmi nabitý, ale nakonec jsme stihli vyřídit SIN (Social Insurance Number), BC ID (místní občanku) a máme oba nové kanadské SIMky, takže na českých číslech už nás moc nezastihnete.

Za odměnu jsme se podívali do čínského parku Dr. Sun …

    Good service for budget price, but unpleasant surroundings of the hotel.

    The Hotel itself is nice and pretty clean, however the surroundings (E. Hastings Street) is crowded with homeless and other "suspicious" people. They pose no danger, they pretty much ignore You if You ignore them, but even though it is not very comfortable, especially if You are walking alone.

    The hotel offers very good value for the price, once we arrived, the receptionist was very nice and gave us a map and explained what is where to be found, suggested good and cheap shops and restaurants in the area, explained local public transport system (as we are from Czech Republic) and some other stuff.

    A nice surprise was that though we booked the cheapest room, we got one level better one for the same price as we booked for a whole week. Later we prolonged our stay and every 7th night is free, another nice surprise :) It was also nice to find out that You get a 20 % discount for all meals in the restaurant, that is located within the hotel building. A bit unpleasant surprise for an european guy is that prices (not just hotels, but pretty much everything) are usually without tax, but this fact is mostly not stated and You find out after paying the bill.

    Public transport accessibility is very good as there are bus stops of important bus lines in the surrounding streets and the Sky Train station is some 10 minutes walk and by that You can get to all important Vancouver places within another 10-15 minutes.

    To sum up, You get a quality service for budget price, however in a bit "scary" location.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Budget Inn Patricia Hotel Vancouver

    Budget isin't always bad...


    Despite some previous reviews we spent 2 nights at the Patricia hotel. Despite being in a neighbourhood that wasn't always nice to look at I have to say that the Patricia hotel is a wonderful place. We looked at several room types and decided on one of their more "expensive" rooms a queen deluxe, which was quite a bit nicer than their budget rooms and still a wonderful deal at a third of the price of most other accomodation in Vancouver.

    Stay as far away from this place as possible


    I have been to Motel 6 once and that seemed a paradise to this! I slept with my $1000.00 US suit jacket over the pillow! I would sleep in my car before I would ever consider this again!!!!!! Trust me, BEWARE! If you still dont believe ask to see the room first!

    The Worst Location Ever


    This hotel is located in arguably the worst neighborhood of all Canada. Check it out on the internet if you dont believe me but I had to find out the hard way, thinking I was getting a decent deal on a budget hotel. There are literally hundreds of homeless, drunks, druggies and prostitutes in this "war zone" of decay and depravation. I had to cancel my remaining 3 (of the original 4) nights because of safety concerns, particularly to my rental car. The hotel claims the parking lot is secure with video surveillance but I only noticed two cameras and who knows if they actually worked. The cameras didnt appear to have much range as it they were only pointed onto the first row of cars. I am familiar with these types of cameras and the range isnt that good if it's pointed straight down.The parking lot also houses a bar that presumably has the types of people described above as customers. The folks at the hotel can refute anything I state here but without a doubt, I will never ever be a guest at their hotel again. I also paid a fee for access to the internet in their lobby and the computer station had no internet access the following day. I ended up finding another hotel closer to the center of town and needless to say, I felt a lot safer than at the Patricia Hotel. I have been to hotels all over Europe and never had such as bad an experience as I did with this location. If you decide you still want to stay here, dont bother parking your car in their "free, secure parking lot." Be warned!!

    Very nice hotel, great location, in a safe drug neighborhood


    Very nice hotel in a safe drug neighborhood (a statement that could only be made in Vancouver?). Rooms very clean, with lots of character. Lobby is great, lots of character, nice to read in. Staff friendly, helpful. The location is ideal if you plan on visiting several areas of Vancouver; better location than the expensive downtown hotels. And on the edge of China-town, you get amazing odors of bbq meat and other great food.

    Do NOT believe the hype or manager rebuttals...


    Saw this property online through a travel booking website and figured that judging from the pictures, the hotel's website, and description, it might be a steal for New Years accomodations. WRONG.... Yes, it is very economically advantageous rate-wise if you're not concerned with security of belongings, surrounding environment, or quality of lodging.

    Don't Stay Here!


    This hotel is in the heart of the ghetto. I was told by 3 different people, within 10 minutes of checking in, not to leave ANYTHING in my car. I was totally misled by their website into thinking this hotel was going to be a great place to stay on my vacation. I knew I was getting a bargain but didn't know how shabby this place was really going to be. The bed was no more than plywood with padding, the pillows were pancake thin, the walls are paper thin, the "door" to the bathroom(which is barely bigger than the toilet itself) was a very thin accordian-style plastic curtain with no latch or knob. AND BEST OF ALL...there was no mention of having to look over a trashy slum before you see the fabulous "city view" from your hotel room. I wouldn't recommend staying here and enourage the people who work here to be more honest with consumers when they call on the phone for details about the hotel.

    You get what you pay for.


    Yes this hotel may be cheap, but it's a textbook case of getting what you pay for. It's located in the worst neighborhood in the city. Junkies, prostitutes, and panhandlers await you outside. Not an area you want to stay in on vacation. The rooms are very small and have all the ambience of a flophouse. No climate control. Bathrooms are about the size of an airline restroom. Our view was an abandoned rusting car next door. Pay a little more and stay downtown.

    A Nice Hotel in a Not-Nice Neighbourhood


    There are two key things to understand about the Patricia: 1) Great hotel. 2) Declining neighbourhood.
