A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.

"Marvelous and centrally located"
reviewed 1 week ago by JamesKMTan
This historic building is located right in the heart of downtown Vancouver near to many tourist spots and the commercial centre of the city.
The architecture is unique and historic. The sky us and translink light rail transit is located inside. There are some restaurants in this station. Short distance to the Canada Place, Tourist information centre and Vancouver Convention...
Worth a wee trip even though it's not a massive museum. The room with the confiscated items was interesting as was the display about policing in the city. Think part of the museum was closed while we were there so not sure what was in the other bits.
Maybe a bit expensive for what there is but it's on the...
There are larger, flashier galleries with much more extensive inventory but the three gentlemen who run this gallery are unmatched for their expertise and impact over the decades on NWC art and Maori art, being the first in North America to do a show exclusively featuring the latter.
The items they offer are well-curated. By that I mean not only...
Bought a walnut rosemary sea salt loaf yesterday at the Kitsilano Market. Oh my goodness! That's got to be about the best bread I've ever had. Made a fantastic turkey sandwich. So glad you are in my neighbourhood.
Visiting Vancouver, where to have breakfast? This IS the place! A weekday at 9 o’clock in the morning and there was a waiting line but it was worth it. We waited for 30 minutes. Inside we had the most memorable meal of our 14 days in Canada. My wife had the buttermilk biscuit melt and I the farmer’s breakfast skillet...
"Outstanding food; hip locale; more $$ than expected"
reviewed 1 week ago by Lisa K
Ate here before a show with our family of 8. Food quality is outstanding. And filling. Try the spaetzle. Decor is minimalist, hip and cozy. But it’s more expensive than I thought. I’d 100% return with my husband or for work but not with a big group.
If you sit by the kitchen, it will be entertaining but noisy. Wine...
We had the sandwiches here several times during our stay. We tried both the porchetta and meatballs - family loved them - I found them a bit rich but the had the meatballs without the kale and aioli and was delicious
Nice hotel, and good location and informative and helpful staff. Parking fee seems to be on a higher side but considering the local parking fees of the area and the fact that you can use for few more hours even after checking out makes it worth.
Waterfront, Gastown and Chinatown are all in walking distance.
Cool vintage building, but with very nicely updated rooms and bathrooms. Super clean. Good value relative to Vancouver high-rise hotel prices. If you don't mind Euro style hotels and/or places with shared bathrooms (a few of the rooms use hallway baths) then you'll love the place.
Location was fantastic, right on the doorstep of all the main tourists areas.
However being so central it was quite noisy with passing traffic, especially a lot of police cars at night (maybe I was just unlucky).
Breakfast was ample but nothing exceptional.
I live in this building.
The suite are ok. Mine got a lite renovation(wall painted) but still is just ok.
The building service is one of the most poor and horrible that I had to deal with in my life.
You pay rent regularly but receive a disconnected services.
-Swimming pool out of service for 4 months!
-Hot water runs...
Possibly the cheapest hotel within walking distance to city centre. The bed was comfortable and shower okay but the hotel badly needs a makeover. Staff were friendly at the reception and there's a nice spacious lounge to spend time reading or planning your day. But the hotel does look very old, from the lift to the light fixtures.
