Everything but location is the most important. Dining was excellent. Staff were very friendly and professional
Beautiful Old hotel with character. We have two little ones. They had a playpen/crib. They are located on english bay beach, so when the kids got up early morning, we could go and play on the beach, without the need to pack up first. We walked around in StanleyPark, went back for nap time, and then the park again. No need to drive/find parking (which is usually hard in the park). They had parking for our vehicle with Thule box on roofrack... Also tricky to find downtown. Excellent restaurant.
next to the beach and stanley park, lots of restaurants in the area. historical building
parking is not free
Close to the beach, the park and restaurants
Hotel itself has charm but very old and wifi didnt work well
I love this hotel largely because of its location, but for many other reasons as well, including a very good restaurant with great views of English Bay.
Food , room, view, can open windows, location, parking,staff, coffee in room
Weak wifi sometimes, elevator carpet dirty, cost, could have in mini refrigerator in non suite rooms
Location Huge room on 8th floor - but got the impression some of the lower-dpwn rooms were smaller
"didn't like' is a bit strong - but it is showing it's age - although that's part of the charm.
The location is perfect. Right across from the beach, with many great restaurants nearby. The restaurant at the hotel is also very good and the views can't be beat.
I loved the location near Stanley Park. I loved the view from the lounge area. Waitress was very nice. Loved the charm and history of the hotel.
There was no air conditioning so it was a bit hot in the room but there was a fan. The price seemed a little high for an older hotel.
No AC. Unstable WIFI
Love, love the location. I am a runner and enjoy getting up in morning to run in stanley park, or sun bath @ english bay, or enjoy a drink along the many restaurants/pubs close by. The staff are very friendly and provided exceptional service. This was my 2nd stay @ the Silvia and I plan to come back again soon.
Very well kept, clean, quiet and comfortable. Location was wonderful
Lack of a/c in room but the fan in the room helped!
The staff, food , room, bar, all great !
An old fashioned gem. Very clean and tidy. Excellent location and close to great restaurants. Friendly , Hardworking Staff.
Too much wall to wall carpeting everywhere.
Excellent customer service. We had two 12 year olds with us and the staff were very kind to them. We asked for two cots, no problem. Having the beach across the street is such a luxury. There are many excellent restaurants in the area as well.
next door to the beach
Wi-Fi didn't work.
Located next to a nice beach in a lively entertainment district with good public transportation to downtown. Hotel has a decent lobby and nice restaurant and bar with a good happy hour. Although room prices are rather high because of the location, they are considerably less than for more modern and luxurious hotels in the central Vancouver area. The staff is knowledgeable and courteous.
The hotel is about 100 years old. While it is clean, the rooms and hallways are a bit dowdy. Cooling a room requires opening a window, which may admit a few flies and considerable street noise. The address is on a minor side street that the map provided by Booking.com did not show, making the hotel very difficult to find in rush hour traffic even though it is also on a prominent street that runs along the beach.
The hotel is in a great location. The staff are friendly, our room (although right across from the elevators) was quiet, and it is clean.
It is OLD. Our room, though big and with a comfortable bed, smelled musty (even with the windows open 24/7). The bathroom was just horrible -- cramped, dark, and if the shower is not original, it's close. If this hotel were updated inside, it would be amazing!
We really enjoyed the location and exquisite view.The hotel had a charming atmosphere and the food was excellent. The staff were all friendly and courteous.It was a great hotel to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary.
We enjoyed the jazz in the evening
The location is wonderful and the restaurant has great food. The hotel is located right on the water and is surounded by great resturants, shops, and is also close to ferry to Granville island. Our room was directly across from the elevator but we didn't hear hardly any noise from the hall the entire time we were there. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I definitely plan to return!
We came on a busy weekend so the room was pretty pricey so make sure to plan ahead or look for coupons.
the location and the room
it was all good
