    Individual guest reviews

    • Helpful staff and location, the local bus service is frequent and cheap. The sylvia hotel is excellent and internet is available to guests in the lobby. The restaurant is great in the morning for gazing out at the bay and enjoying your coffee, the famous Stanley Park is within walking distance. The rooms are clean, fresh and pleasant, the bar is very comfortable, the breakfasts are very good.

      Some of the public areas could use a little repair/, the decor is old world, updates to furniture and paint are not a priority at the Sylvia, the elevators are horribly small and outdated.

    • The location was the best and the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were spotless, on the other two days the service was fine, and the breakfast wonderful.

    • Location makes worthwhile, cost friendly and backpackers would rate this good. Very quiet, excellent service, comfy beds and the late night barman and the breakfast waiters were great.

      The hotel looks very nice on arrival, is very old and as our room had a well equipped kitchen we would really have apprecaited some tea/.

    • Its location was perfect and quaintness of the hotel was wonderful. The staff were friendly and the foyer of our suite was huge. None of the other drinks were available.

      The history of the old place, the bed in our room was very uncomfortable.

    • Very quiet residential neighborhood surroundings, good value and for a reasonable price. Staff were efficient and friendly, our room was fantastic. Nice bar, breakfast was ok.

    • Nice restaurants in the vicinity, fabulous location and enjoyable hotel in a wonderful position. We liked the ambiance of an older established building, reasonable parking rates and the lobby staff were extremely helpful and likable. The sylvia's service was just fine and beds were comfortable. Breakfasts were always great, in the bar and the menu was excellent.

      The elevators were not working for most of our stay and my room was pretty old looking.

    • Lovely large room overlooking English bay, we really liked all the nearby choices of restaurants on Denman St and helpful Location is the best in the city. The place is cozy, warm and wonderful, fish is gorgeous and staff great.

      Old hotel and no hot tubs. There's no continental breakfast.

    • The sylvia's location is ideal and a very wonderful place full of character. The service is very good and the rooms are clean and comfortable albeit smaller than the N.

      Used your bar and restaurant and spent a fair amount of money in the hotel, the staff were excellent and helpful. The furniture was worn and the mattresses were hard, the elevator wasn't in great shape and kept breaking down.

    • The location staff very helpful great restaurant, very central to shopping, the park and the bay, the kids splashed and played at the beach, and my Mum just rested at the waterfront. Very pleasant unpretentious atmosphere, beautiful building and the price and the lovely simplicity. Traditional style/, wonderful service and plenty of hot water for shower. The bar looks inviting and good breakfast.

      Rooms are ugly and worn; public areas are dark and grim, the Sylvia Hotel is a classic old, no air conditioning available.

    • Good location and price, our first stop on our BC tour and a great choice. The situation is perfect and the hotel has such character, the lobby is a friendly circus, nice bar/lounge overlooking English Bay at sunset is fabulous. The staff are friendly, helpful and rooms are charming. The sheets smell fresh and the pillows are soft, lovely Irish guy behind counter.

      The decor was very poor, limited restaurant menu Some of the workmanship in our bathroom was almost third world.
