I stayed at this hotel several times and have always had a pleasant stay. This is your typical european style hotel. There are no frills but just the basic necessities that a normal hotel guest needs. I've stayed here several times over the years and have always had great iteractions with the staff. They have always been very accomodating. Two things I would recommend to the hotel is to update the communal shower/bath areas and replace the bedspreads which have been there for as long as I can remember. A traveler won't regret staying here if they aren't expecting the Ritz.

The Buchan Hotel was very conveniently located and in a quaint, lovely neighborhood. We walked and took buses everywhere! The downstairs living room was big and cozy with tea and coffee available all day long. The staff was friendly and very helpful in answering questions about Vancouver and its sights. The rooms were very basic, but clean, with shared toilets and showers down the hall. In June, it was pricey for what we got, but they are totally honest about what the room rates include.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms not facing the streets and closer to the toilets.

I spent 5 days at the Buchan in July- what I liked was its location - its easy to walk to Stanley Park in one direction and to the central part of the city and harbourside on the other. Despite being very central its down a side street which means that its quiet.
Staff are friendly and the room was ok although not the best. I had a private room which was comfortable enough but its not the cleanest of places and the general decor needs updating. Also, my room was directly next to some communal bathrooms which meant I got disturbed quite often.
In conclusion, I think its good enough for the price but there are also better options for the money

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from communal bathrooms

Sunday, June 26, 2011 — UBC to Stanley Park, Vancouver, BC
http://www.canadarunningseries.com/svhm/index.htm

The Buchan Hotel is 800 m from Expo and early morning Shuttle Pick Up
10mn Walk from Finishing line , the Famous Stanley Park
So IDEALLY Located ....

They provide very clean room thus Basic
amazingly quiet ,

Paid (2$) Fast Wifi access .
NO Breakfast . just Coffee

The reception is very friendly and helpful .
Early Morning ( 4.30 am ) coffee was not ready .. usually from 6 am
but they agreed in providing Boiled Water ..
and They DID ....
so we could make and have our Own Coffee in the Room ..

We liked the place
we stayed 3 nights during our first stay ( room 32 )
then 3 more nights ( room 32 as well ) a month later.
They have Rooms with shared Bathroom and Toilets
as well as in-suite Rooms such as room 39 for those who need more Comfort

The area is Safe .
5 mn walk to a Bunch of Cheap and Good Asian and Ethnic restaurants

Bottom line : we will sleep there again if needed

Tip:
If online reservation seems to be fully booked
don't hesitate to contact them they have " Hidden Rooms"

Great area close to Stanley park and out of the city slightly, great for exploring the park. Unfortunately no ramp into the hotel, had to climb and carry up cases just to get through the doors to reception about 6 in all. Not good with heavy cases!!! Booking in was ok but then found out no lift so had to cart the heavy cases now up flights of stairs. Not fun and all, a bit of a work out to say the least.....Room very basic and in need of an lick of pain. No toilet paper provided in room (obviously overlooked)and no fridge and no coffee/tea making facilities- couldn't believe it..There was pot of coffee always on in the communial lounge area but would have been nicer in the room. Wouldn't take much.Unfortunately stayed there the night of the canucks riot so was fairly noisy in the street, could have been worse though could have been more in the heart of the city.
