            clean bed, nice and friendly staff at the reception, easy transportation to the citycenter, but: last bus at 10 pm

            the basthroom can use a light renovation

            Even does not have toothbrush!!!!!nobody told me internet access would be charged when I checked in. when I checked out , a bill about $100 showed on me and I had to pay for the internet access

          • Single
            7.4

            the guest mini bus into the city centre

            its location probably to far from the city centre aprox 20 mins walk

          • Single
            6.2

            great location but the hotel next door was cheaper and had better facilities

            Air conditioning did not work, TV poor reception and old style display,had dinner but the steak was tuff, sinue and poor quality for the price, i told the waiter

          • Single
            7.8

            The room was enormous! I enjoyed it was centrally located to meet my needs and as usual the friendly staff.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            The extreme friendliness of the staff, and the variaty of nationalities was very positive.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            We were happy with the friendly, helpful staff. We were also very comfortable and thought we got good value for money.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Beautiful view, The room was great and comfortable. The city transfer was very useful.

          • Couple
            7.4

            our room ws spacious and had a balcony, nice enough hotel

            about 20 mins walk to the town centre, which is quite a bit of a walk esp when walking in 30 degrees. would prefer a hotel nearer the centre.

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            I liked the view, even though the weather was rainy and overcast (rainy season).The staff was very helpful and the room was clean and comfy. Little further from downtown than I thought, but no big deal.

            It would be nicer if the internet were free (as a number of hotels in Vancouver, Canada)

          • Couple
            8.8

            The staff was great. Our room had a nespresso machine to make coffee with. Walking distance to city centre but they offer a shuttle bus nonetheless. Great memory foam mattresses! Nice size bed and room too.

            The shower has a strange effect: when you open the faucet completely a strange airflow develops which blows the shower curtain everywhere, resulting in a drenched bathroom. Not opening the faucet completely alleviates this somewhat, but maybe they should just add some weights to the shower curtain. Ofcourse this is just a small nitpick, it's a great hotel.

          • Couple
            7.4

            Comfortable room with a balcony, a great view overlooking the bay and very convenient to the airport. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Shuttle bus is very handy if you dont feel like walking to and from town, which is a nice walk.

            Only issue would be not having maintenance support on weekends. Coming from hotels myself, some simple tv problem solving training for staff would be beneficial, and giving staff a key to access the tv cabinet seems necessary.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            This is top class accommodation but allowing it to also be for the older traveller.
