Excelent location, clean and comfortable rooms. Friendly staff. Noisy neighbours and no elevators. No breakfast but there are options nearby. But overall a good choice to explore the city. I recommend those who seek good value for the money to consider this hotel.

Good value for the money, very good location, excellent staff; hotel is quite in need of some modernization, but if one merely needs a no-frills place to stay in Vancouver, this is certainly a place one should consider!

If the thought of shared bathrooms is making you hesitant about booking, please, please don't let it disuade you!! This hotel is immensely clean, the staff are all incredibly pleasant, and the location literally could not be better. With a sink in your room and individual rooms for each bathroom down the hall, the facilities are more then adequate. Cannot recommend this hotel enough.

We chose the Buchan hotel as it was our first visit to Vancouver and only had 2 days before travelling oon to Seattle to visit our son and his wife. The location was excellent, and the hotel was clean and comfy but could do with some new paint as it was quite shabby in hallways and public areas. We had eeverything we needed for the stay and the staff were very pleasant.

Reread the less-than-favorable reviews & agree with (good) reviewers who say that if u are looking 4 la-di-da, stay somewhere pricey (and noisy, and shallow; a place that could be found in any of a bazillion cities). Came directly from airport and Buchan was easy to find with #250 Horseshoe Bay from City Center skytrain & (great) map from (airport) tourist info.

Excellent location for a first time in Vancouver. Easy walk to Stanley Park and bike rentals. Nice quiet area. Complimentary coffee/tea was appreciated. Good access to public transport, restaurants and food shopping. Staff were excellent. Our room was right opposite the restaurants outdoor dining area but this did not disturb us. This is an older building with no A/C. The rooms could use a bit of TLC. Would we stay at the Buchan again? YES.

Lovely old boutique hotel, has a great Italian restaurant below, walking distance to Stanley park ,beach,eateries . Would recommend this to people who are looking for accomodation with ambience, not clinical hotels, some rooms share facilities but ours had its own bathroom. No lift but no problem to us in our 60s. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

Downtown near Stanley park is the perfect location. A short walk to the park or to restaurants. Good safe neighborhood. Everything downtown is within walking distance. Close to coffee shops and bakery. There were a couple corner grocers that made fresh local fruit easy to get.

We chose the Buchan to wind down after a Denali tour and coastal cruise. Good proximity to cruise terminal (we walked but most wouldn't). Stairs to entry and lots more stairs to rooms would discourage some. Lack of air-con on a hot night is forgiven as this is rare. Room was clean, large and comfortable, if a bit dated. Overall good value.

Very affordable hotel. My room came with a shared bathroom. In some hotels that might cause an issue, but at the Buchan it did not. The bathrooms were very clean and never occupied when I needed to use them. The room was very clean as was the rest of the hotel eventhough it's a bit dated. The hotel is right next to Stanley park and the Downtown area is only about a 20 min walk away.

The Buchan is another 'grand dame'. Definitely a bargain - with options for 'shared bathrooms' (not as bad as that sounds) or private baths (we opted for this). Also - a walk-up (no elevators) and no AC - but all windows are newer, screened and work well. All of this contributed to the charm for us. Oh - great rates! Now to the really good stuff: Amazing location - literally 2 blocks off Stanley Park and 2 blocks from Denman. Denman is a vital and happening street with wide array of dining ... Read more

Walking to waterfront was no problem and you can even walk to Yaletown or Gastown in 30-40 minutes if you don't mind a decent stroll. Hotel itself is fairly basic but great value for money.

Parking was one of the reasons I chose this hotel as it can be hard to come by in downtown Vancouver. However, we were there for 2 nights during the week (a Monday and Tuesday) and they didn't have any available in that time and so we were forced to find street parking and move our car every 2 hours. The hallways stunk like mildew and the rooms left much to be desired. One positive is that they have 2 fans per room, which were so helpful as there was no A/C and the rooms were sweltering.

The location and price is great. They don't have elevators so it is a little bit painful to carry 3 luggages in to my room on the 3rd floor. They do have storage which allows me to store my stuff when I change the type of room for the next night (for my own reason). The staff was very friendly and suggest I can leave all my luggage on the same floor and they will put them in my next room, which saved me a lot of time and effort. I enjoyed my stay!

We stayed two nights and it was nearly perfect, especially the value you got for the price was very good. The location is very good, only 20 minutes to the center (by bus) and in a nice and friendly neighborhood. Eating facilities are within walking distance. We had a room with a private bathroom which was located right to the staircase. Due to the fact that door and walls are thin we heard everyone passing by. Earplugs are provided by the hotel.;-) But this was the only minor disturbance.

I loved staying at the Buchan, a pleasantly old fashioned, comfortable and clean small hotel in a quiet, attractive street.

The front sitting room with facilities for making hot drinks was a great way to meet other travellers. Staff were pleasant and helpful.

convenient to Stanley Park and Denman street, which has tons of ethnic restaurants; also convenient to #5 bus downtown yet is in a quiet neighborhood. Facility itself is a little worn, and rooms have few amenities. Wi-fi signal ranged from adequate to poor. Walls are thin, and the wood hallways, although cool looking in a retro way, do little to muffle sound. No AC, which in a heat spell would be tough.

The location of the hotel was great, close to Stanley Park and restaurants. I slept really well because I was tired after a long flight, but there seemed to be a lot of noise inside the hotel throughout the night, people in the room above me, and people coming and going and talking. The hotel was really good to not charge me for the first 2 days I was unable to stay due to weather delays.

If you looking for the great location and want to spend most of your time exploring and enjoying beautiful views this is it. Guest room is very busy and you can meet people from around the world. The only thing you have to be comfortable to share showers and washrooms. .During warm days it can get hot but rooms are equipped with portable fans. We will be back more often if the air tickets would be less expensive.

I had my doubts when I booked two nights at the Buchan. Low price, considering where it sits in the placid west-of-Denman streets, and shared washrooms/showers like a backpacker's hostel? I was expecting something close to the grotty Downtown Eastside vibe (I lived in Vancouver for four years, so I developed prejudices.) I waited too long to book a room before my Northern Hemisphere trip started, though, so I didn't have much time for advance planning. First thing I did when I got to the room w... Read more

The Buchan is a comfy, older hotel smack in the middle of a lovely, leafy green residential neighborhood. Nearby are great international restaurants on Denman St. and the expanse of Stanley Park. It's a brisk walk or a short bus ride to the center for shopping, museums, etc. This was our third stay and I don't think we would choose elsewhere. BTW, Having a car here (or most anywhere in the city) is a pain in the neck.

No elevator making it a nightmare lugging 2 big suitcases up 3 flights of stairs! Our room was right next to the communal bathrooms so there was constant sound of doors banging. People in room opposite had their room door open so could hear them and people congregating in hallway talking for over an hour which was really irritating... Read more

The headline sums up my review. Chain hotels are predictable and generally fine but little properties like this are a nice oasis from the norm. The neighbourhood is charming, the room was basic but just fine with a good bed, blazing white sheets and pillow cases and a functional bathroom. TV was basic cable and it would have been good to know what channels were blocked on the menu. I found the room too hot but most probably wouldn't. No air conditioning so summer visitors should take note.

It was great, location perfect. Staff friendly. Did park in Bachman parking spaces and that worked out well. Ran in Stanley Park two days and this location is so close. Next time I would like to try the Italian restaurant below hotel.

The lounge needs a good clean and a bit refreshing it's dowdy and musty looking Change the frames on the historical photographs in the hallway to something more fancy and add more splashes of colour and elegance in rooms and bathrooms

The location was great, the cost was great, lovely area. We wished we could have had breakfast there, but walked up to Robson and found a good place. The small size of the hotel was wonderful; the walk up made us a little breathless, being seniors, but the room felt cozy with a great view out into the quiet tree lined street.

We had a room that faced the street, with a private bathroom, and it was very quiet at night. We were able to find street parking. In our room, the beds were very very firm, almost too firm. ...

The hotel rooms are spartan but the overall experience was terrific. Great bed, good television, great showers and free wi-fi that works. Plus the location cannot be beat. Overall I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to friends and family.

I have stayed there around thirty times since 2005. It's a lovely, friendly, unpretentious place in exactly the right location. It's safe, secure, a bit like the United Nations and just cool. There is little that's glamorous and no lift but it's just plain nice.
