Score from 264 reviews Very good
Great location. Very clean with good restaurant and lounge. Able to walk to Stanley Park. Good place to get a good nights sleep.
There was nothing I didn't like.
The hotel faces English Bay and is next to the seawall, which encircles Stanley Park. We walked around the park and it was beautiful. Excellent location. Walkable to almost everything. The room was large and quiet. The bed was great and the staff were very helpful with restaurant suggestions.
The breakfast was fine, but brunch was the same as the daily breakfast. We wished it had been a little more special.
I enjoyed the class of the hotel and it's original style. I especially like the fact that I could dine for dinner with entertainment. Also, all the guest needs are met with care.
Loved the location....loved how sound proof the room was...and how private my room was....staff very pleasant and friendly
That I only got to stay one night.....thought the price if your free range eggsa was outrageous....that was pretty much the only sore point I had....but on a positive note I was appreciative that that waitress let me know the price listed for free range eggs was in addition to the price of a regular egg before I purchased them.
For the cost very good for Vancouver - The hotel in areas is a little tired but you don't get the feeling of it being grubby. Very friendly & efficient reception staff
Staff in restaurant need to learn some customer service
Great location near Stanley Park. Comfortable room but small by today's standards.
The wifi could be better. Too expensive, should be cleaner and updated.
The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location next to English Bay is quiet and convenient to more restaurants than you can imagine.
The rooms are somewhat dated, but everything is super clean.
Dogs barking in the middle of the night.
Proximity to Stanley Park transit services. Convenience of Happy Hour and restaurant on nights you are too tired to go out. Nice staff. Six blocks to Whole Foods, 2 blocks to drug store. Step out the door and you are bayside with beaches and 1 block to Stanley Park. Fantastic!
Our room was over driveway garage area. We paid 189.00 a night but with taxes and other fees became about 250.00 a night -- and that was without Booking.com It was direct booking .
The Sylvia is what it is. Probably unique in it's refusal to modernise which I sincerely hope it will not. It won't appeal therefore to everyone but we loved it.
Yes I did see mice on the patio. Time to get another cat I think.
Everything about the Sylvia Hotel made our stay in Vancouver a real pleasure. The location is wonderful, the room was wonderfully large, every staff person we came into contact with was polite and friendly. Service was excellent. It offered the best of old-fashioned care for the guest. It was slower--in a good way--and more personal than many other hotels we have stayed at.
Beds were comfy. Had three beds with one separate room. Location is perfect for being by water. Staff are like family - so friendly.
Not for you should you need luxury living, eg. newer rooms. Walls are thin, could hear neighbours conversation clearly.
Desk staff helped me greatly with perfectly-executed business, travelling and leisure bookings and advice.
Nice room with comfortable bed. Lovely location and view.
Nice staff. Great location near Stanley Park. Comfortable room but small by today's standards. Lots of character.
Proximity to English Bay Comfortable beds Excellent bar and restaurant Friendly staff Historical context
Clumpy duvet Weak wi-fi
quaintness of hotel, staff, restaurant on site, parking on site
even though the food was excellent I thought it a bit pricy
We love the location, the view, the spacious , light filled rooms with windows that open to the fresh air. We have a dog so very much appreciate that she can come with us. Love the neighborhood, beach, park restaurants all within walking distance
I chose this for my elderly mother and I and we loved it. She was very comfortable there and felt well looked after. The position right on the bay and close to Stanley Park meant we could enjoy it all without having to walk far.
The wifi could be better
The location the best staff the history!
The staff was very helpful and friendly. We had lots of questions and the staff was very pleased to answer any questions that we had. they were also great with giving us helpful information such as restaurants and places of interest for first time visitors. Wally actually walked my daughter and I to our restaurant since we did not know where it was and also recommended an Italian restaurant to us. Overall we had a great visit and are planning on coming back next year.
My ONLY complaint was that our room was to warm but being an old hotel the rooms do not have AC so we used the fan that did help
the food is getting expensive. The drinks in the lounge are also seeing cutbacks, Mandatory coffee no longer has sugared rim, or wafer, yet price goes up.
My neighbour in Ottawa told me about the Sylvia Hotel and I decided to follow her advice. So glad I did. I loved the location. I walked everywhere including to Granville Island and to Stanley Park. For further destinations such as the Anthropology Museum, it was easy to find and use public transit. I appreciated the advice from staff. Everyone was very helpful. I will definitely stay again.
I wish check in was earlier in the day. I understand it is a popular hotel and cleaning takes time but that is my only negative. Having said that the staff did their best to accommodate me as they could.
the location is really outstanding and the hotel itself is a very nice, traditional smaller hotel, not one of the big hotels which are the same wherever they are located. very nice atmosphere. I was lucky to enjoy live music in the bar
my room was quite small which was okay for just 1 night and 1 person. For a longer stay I would recommend to book a bigger room. The elevators seems to be fairly old and I doubt their safety.
Great location, old but very pleasant breakfast area looking over the water, building covered in autumn coloured creeper
Some fittings getting tired but still comfortable
