Lovely historic hotel but rooms a little institutionalised

by olthomas44 on 25 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

We enjoyed our stay at The Sylvia. The staff were really helpful including upgrading our room to a 'slightly larger one'. The rooms themselves are definitely old with the impression of cm thick paint. Pipes are on open view and the bathrooms are basic BUT I've stayed in much better places with worse conditions. The staff helped us with excellent dinner choices, delayed luggage and ghost stories. Apart from jet lag we slept well here. Would happily recommend. Traffic wise it's a good quiet spot f...

Wonderful staff, historic and charming hotel

by VisitorTraveller on 24 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

Sylvia Hotel a Vancouver treasure

by malia37 on 22 Jan 2017

The historic, charming Sylvia Hotel - situated on English Bay in Vancouver's West End - has great warmth and friendly service from the entire staff. Many of the staff have been there for years which is a testament to their sense of pride in the hotel. We have been guests since 1998 and have never been disappointed with our stay. In fact, we would not visit Vancouver if we couldn't book a room or suite at the Sylvia.

Very well located. Nice staff.

Sylvia Hotel is well located and it's quaint. Building is old but charming. Rooms are spacious but require updates and maintenance. Rates are very affordable in comparison to other hotels in Vancouver.

A Pleasant Place to Roost

The Sylvia Hotel, Located across the street from English Bay Beach, is very close to a large variety of Dining and Shopping choices. The Property is quaint, very well operated and convenient, and also walking distance to Stanley Park. As one of Vancouver's oldest historical hotels, where many celebrities choose to stay, it is definitely boutique and feels like home, something ownerships prides itself on. Room Rates are very reasonable based on downtown location, within a $10. cab ride anywhere i...
