The location is great beside English Bay beach. The area is full of restaurants and cafés. The room was very clean and tidy. I recommend it if you would like to spend the day out and just come for sleeping. Also, the kitchen have everything you need to cook and this is great. If you prefer a quiet place the area is busy and maybe not the best. Overall the price is good and compared to the service.

It was okay. Location is good, close to lots of food places, liquor stores, and the beach. but very busy and loud all the time so if you don’t like vibrant big city vibes and want something calm and relaxing don’t stay here. Parking was weird and hard to find and not free, also you had to walk through a few very unpleasant smelling rooms to get to the parkade. (They share a building with a few food places so think grease buckets and stinky food) Mostly clean but kinda not in some spots. Too much big bulky unnecessary furniture in the room makes the room feel smaller. Staff were nice, room was cleaned everyday if asked. No fitted sheet on the mattress so if you want to be under all the blankets you’re sleeping on the mattress lol. Very old hotel and furniture but that Doesn’t bother me. Kinda weird that the staff have to buzz you in every time you want back into the hotel but I guess it’s cause of busy location. Full kitchen so that was nice. Elevator sucks. Overall it was very just okay. Not bad not great. I stayed at the Sylvia last time and I think next time I would pay the extra couple bucks and stay there again instead of here.

The room was very good and spacious, the room was clean, the AC and fan worked well, and my family and I loved it. I didn't like the stress of carrying our bags from the basement through the staircase as the elevator did not go to the basement.

Wasn’t really sure what to expect as a mixup with another hotel had me searching for something last minute. Once I arrived the front desk was super friendly but the building is older and I was worried about what I’ve gotten myself into. I Couldn’t have been more wrong. The rooms are massive and come with all the modern amenities you could need. Plus you can’t beat the location - it’s a block and a half stumble to the beach and even less to amazing food (Craft Social Market, Three Brits pub). There are plenty of shawarma and East Indian cuisine places right next door and it has the feel of a real life market. Can’t say enough about the staff - I believe it’s a family ran business and they put the extra care in to make sure my stay was memorable. I’d take this over a Holiday Inn any day.
