Clean and friendly and great value, with excellent location. Parking can be a challenge: I advise finding a weekend spot and not moving your car if possible. This didn't work for us, but when we returned we had the luck of a space opening up. I can't over-emphasize the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.

Great location, but that's all. If you're not staying here other then just sleeping it's fine. But if you're in your room more then a few hours the smell will make you sick. It's a smell of chemicals and harsh mold that lingers everywhere in the hotel.

Thank you for your review. I do appreciate the feedback regarding the cleaning chemicals we use. It's always a fine line between cleaning chemicals that don't clean deep enough, and ones with the heavy cosmetic scent. Our room attendants are constantly asking me to try different products to see if we can find that balance. Obviously what we were using...

I checked into the Buchan Hotel after needing a break from hostels. Needless to say I was thoroughly impressed. My room was cosy, the bed was comfy, the TV was great and the bathroom clean. Haro is a lovely street to walk along and close to many coffee/food spots. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and highly recommend - a...

The room was a bit hot due to the old fashioned radiant heat, and the toilets down the hall were no bigger than broom closets, but a great deal for the price. Would definitely stay here again. The little Italian restaurant downstairs was a bonus.

No free parking but it was very easy to find 2 hour parking on the streets. Rooms were tidy, great place if you plan on walking around a lot. Close to ocean and lots of great shopping and restaurants.

I have stayed at the Buchan and will no doubt stay there again. The atmosphere is friendly and warm and the location can't be beaten. The room was ordinary for a budget hotel but it was clean and neat. The lounge was an added bonus. The neighborhood hotel reminded me of neighborhood hotels in Europe.

This is a bare minimum kind of hotel. Restrooms down the hall that, in one case, were so small that the door has to be modified to open it past the toilet. Plenty of restrooms available though. The rooms have a small sink and mirror for other things. The coolest part of the hotel were the historical photos lining the...

Love staying at the Buchan Hotel -- it is just like traveling in Europe and staying at Pensiones! The low cost coupled with extra comfort of the lounge, helpful staff and the great sightseeing just minutes from the door are all things we love about the Buchan.

overall enjoyed our stay; a little off the beaten path if you are attending shows/things in town but easy 10$ cab if need to or a nice walk. Very quiet setting, woke to birds chirping outside the window :) Pretty minimal in terms of amenities but will do the trick if trying to save a buck. Restaurant wasn't open during...

Cute little hotel at a very reasonable price, near beautiful Stanly Park. Quiet and clean. Nice little italian restaurant in the same building. No breakfast at hotel, but Starbucks and other caffees close by. City center is app within 10 min walking distance.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
