A classic retro hotel, in a magnificent location

Location, price, service,
The hotel is accessible by public transport from the airport (train/bus); no car or taxi necessary. It is right on the ocean, close to Stanley Park and within easy walking distance of restaurants and any other service a traveler could require. Bicycle rental establishments are sprinkled all over, and the cycle trails are well marked and often separated physically from traffic. For us, the stay was perfect.

Poor customer service, bad attitudes

The location and the historic nature of the hotel are great. Convenient bar and restaurant located within. Easy to find.
The showers are poor quality- taking a long time to heat up and thereby wasting water. There was a mouse in my room. The hotel staff moved me to a new room but did nothing else to convince me they were concerned with my experience at their hotel. In general they handled the situation poorly: making promises they never kept. In general the from desk was rude and did not seem as if they wanted to help.

Friendly and clean hotel

the location, its staffs and cleaness
IT was a wonderful short stay in Sylvia. I can easily walk to the beach get lost and found myself back again where I start. I like taking pictures, so I sometimes I stared very early at 6AM - or even late at 8 in the evening. I just walked along the beach shore, enjoy it, take some pictures, grab my breakfast and ate it on a beach bench or just easily enjoying my coffee. I can of careless that sometimes I left my luggage open, I found none of my things missing. And they have nice smell on their bed sheet. The staffs are very friendly, helpful and funny. If I ever go back to Vancouver again, I would definitely come back to Sylvia hotel.
