Great place in Gastown

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful loft apartment one block from the bars and restaurants of Gastown. Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Vancouver. Building and residents are very security conscious. Apartment was on the 4th floor and we rarely had to wait for the elevator. Included parking in secure garage was a big plus. Clean, convenient, well-equipped...what more can you ask for. Security deposit refunded shortly after checkout.

Highly recommended.

Excellent location/very hot loft

  • 3 of 5

The loft was clean, had everything we needed including laundry facilities. The owner met us, let us in and spent time with us telling us about the area. We had free parking and the location was perfect for us to walk wherever we wanted to go. It was in an excellent location but it was uncomfortably hot our entire stay. This was a few days after the heat wave. There is a ceiling fan in the loft but to us it seemed too small for the size of the loft. There is a door on the bottom floor that opens, no screen. There were no other windows for cross ventilation. That did not do much to cool down the loft. There was a tower fan in the bedroom that only reached the small area it pointed to. More portable fans are needed. Because of this we really couldn't enjoy spending any time more than necessary in the loft and were only there to sleep. The owner was as helpful as she could be and apologized about the heat in the unit, explaining that this type of heat is uncharacteristic for Vancouver and that the stores sold out of portable fans.

Dirty apartment, homeless heroin addicts everywhere

  • 1 of 5

Bed had obviously been used, had to wash sheets on arrival. Washer and dryer both had wet towels and cleaning rags in them. Found unwashed dishes in kitchen cabinet. Freezer dirty (? mold). Rugs should have been replaced long ago.

Addicts shooting up in alley outside window day and night. Every morning started around 5 AM with ambulance sirens and delivery trucks. Never saw anything like it and I'm from a large US city.

We complained, but our comments were dismissed. "Professional cleaning company"; I doubt it.

We arrived during a bad heat wave and we were brought an extra fan, which was greatly appreciated.

Owner's Response: Hi Joseph, I am concerned hearing about your experience. We talked on the phone on the day of your arrival and I remember telling you that the sheets and towels are washed every single time another guest checks out, that the sheets might have looked a bit worn but definitely they were not dirty. After your check out we disposed of those sheets and got a new set. As for the sheets in the dryer I explained you that due the turnover the same day, with a 4 hr window to clean, sometimes we leave the last load of laundry drying, but again this is clean. I wish you had mentioned the dirty dishes you found as I had no knowledge of this. Apologies for it. As for the addicts, there are a couple housing facilities nearby the area that try to help homeless and people with addictions. Yes unfortunately sometimes they are hanging around alleyways and although not pretty, I agree, they are not dangerous to anybody. I am sorry you had a bad experience due to some circumstances and wish that besides this you enjoyed your visit to Vancouver overall. Wish you the best, Maha

Excellent location, apartment a bit worn

  • 3 of 5

The location of this property could not be better - it is in the heart of Gastown and walking distance from so much. The parking spot is also an absolute necessity and an amenity that is very valuable. The apartment however is a bit worn which gives you the feeling that it is not entirely clean. The sheets on the bed were wrinkled - hopefully they had been changed? And the washer dryer must be reached by moving out the entire bookcase, so a bit cumbersome. With some new/clean feeling updates this would be a five.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. The sheets are always cleaned and changed, sometimes they are a bit wrinkled due to the dryer. As this place is in a character building, maybe the finishing or the floor style and color might make it look worn but rest assured that the whole apartment is cleaned after every check out by a professional cleaning company. We will look into ways to improve or refresh the looks of it. Thanks for your input :)

Character apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a characterful apartment and a great place to stay for couples, being right in the heart of Gastown, with all its restaurants and bars on the doorstep. It's also just about a 10 minute walk from the Waterfront station, so very handy for transport links. There is secure entry to the apartment building, so it felt quite safe. In addition to clean linens & towels, the owner provided other facilities, such as coffee, toiletries etc., which aren't always freely available in apartments, so they were much appreciated. Overall, we really enjoyed our holiday in Vancouver.
