Great place, staff, pool, position

We had an absolutly great stay in this hotel. We got upgraded to a slightly better room (the first one was nice) as we were staying for 2 weeks. The staff were lovely, helpful and friendly. We had the pool to ourselves almost every day. The location was great for walking everywhere.

Ideal Location

Staff were very helpful. When we got to our room it wasn't made up. We were immediately upgraded to a suite. The in-house Moxy's Grill is very good value with very attentive servers. A good hotel in an excellent location just 5 minutes walk from downtown Vancouver.

Very nice clean inexpensive hotel with a pool

We stayed in this hotel for 13 nights and that is obviously longer than most guests as the receptionist was quite shocked. Because of the length of stay we were upgraded, however the first room we were given would have been fine for a short stay (no wardrobe in the room). The upgraded room had a very comfortable 6' bed, a wardrobe and all of the normal things you would expect from a hotel room. There was a tidy little pool and jacuzzi on our floor which was very handy but we didn't know about it until we got there and smelt the chlorine. The position of the hotel was great for all of the things we wanted like Robson Street, Christmas market etc and good for transport links for other areas

A bit dingy, but well located and good value

The hotel is very well located in central Vancouver, about four blocks from Vancouver City Centre Skytrain, direct on the Canda Line from YVR. The staff were very courteous and the room was good value. The place was a bit dingy and the room quite small. Some extra lighting in the room would not go amiss.

Städtereise Vancouver/BC

Das Sandman Hotel Vancouver City Centre ist ein sehr altes Hotel, die Einrichtung alt und sehr dunkel gehalten. Vermittelt keinen behaglichen Eindruck. Das trifft auch auf die anderen Sandman-Hotels in BC zu. Allerdings wird es von den Angestellten sauber geführt. Mitarbeiter sind sehr höfflich. WLAN ist sehr langsam. Die Preise im Restaurant sind sehr hoch. Die Lage ist gut, da man Down-Town ab hier sehr gut zu Fuß erkunden kann. Die Preise für einen Tiefgaragenplatz sind ebenfalls sehr hoch, deshalb wäre es angebracht, Vancouver zu Fuß, mit dem Rad oder dem Bus zu erkunden. Wir würden dieses Hotel nicht mehr buchen.

Netter Aufenthalt in Vancouver

Wir sind für 2 1/2 Tage in Vancouver als Start unserer Kanadarundreise gewesen. Das Hotel ist vom Flughafen mit der Bahn gut zu erreichen. Von der Station bis zum Hotel sind es noch einmal ca. 5 Minuten Fußweg. Die Lage des Hotels Downtown ist perfekt. Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten sind gut zu Fuß zu erreichen. Das Hotel ist zweckmäßig eingerichtet. Das einzige was uns wirklich gestört hat, war die Entlüftungsanlage der gegenüberliegenden Radiostation. Mit geschlossenem Fenster war alles gut, da es aber sehr heiß war und die Klimaanlage nicht unser Freund ist, haben wir mit offener Tür geschlafen, was auf Grund der Lautstärke z.T. schwierig war.
