The location of the property is in a terrible unsafe area of Vancouver. Even our taxi cab driver told us when dropping us off. I believe this a refurbished apartment building. The room we had a separate set of stairs as if the room was originally the attic. Not enough space for 3 people's suitcases. No air conditioning. No one to complain to since we checked in late at 9:30 pm. Not a typical hotel with a front desk. We went out to look for dinner and the area was scary with many drug addicts around. And I am from NYC so I am not afraid of a city setting. But this was terrible. And I paid over $400 for one night. Do not book this place.

The room was clean and nice. Loves the art and the goals of the hotel. Unfortunately the surrounding area was unappealing though I think it is usually better and was circumstantial.

Beautiful room and the comfiest hotel bed I’ve ever encountered. The building is very secure so You can feel safe despite the proximity to East Hastings. The staff were all friendly and super helpful. Definitely will stay here again!
