Lonely Planet review
This cozy but fiendishly well-hidden guesthouse is a word-of-mouth favorite in the heart of the city. Tuck yourself into one of the comfy rooms (the loft is recommended) or spend your time in the lounge areas downstairs. There are laundry facilities, a computer that's free to use and loaner bikes that are also gratis. Bathrooms are mostly shared; the loft's bathroom is private.
The hosts are highly welcoming and full of suggestions for what to do in the area if you need some ideas.
Our independent authors have visited Urban Hideaway Guesthouse and selected this as one of our recommended guesthouses in Downtown & West End.
Description provided by property
Built in 1896 during the height of the Victorian era, the Urban Hideaway Guesthouse is, uniquely, one of the ONLY DOWNTOWN HOMES in Vancouver to survive the 20th Century and watch the city literally grow up around it.
We offer private and affordable rooms and suites, set in a 19th Century Victorian Guesthouse, right in the center of Downtown Vancouver. A friendly cross between a property Home, a B&B and a Travelers Inn, where you can mingle with travelers from all over the world in a quite, laid-back setting.
Your friendly hosts Janine and Ken, aswell as two friendly felines Nimue & Pippin, offer a relaxed, west coast alternative to the typical plastic hotel experience.
For the convenience of all guests there is roof-top sun deck and flower gardens, smokers refuge, comprehensive complimentary city map, guest library & huge DVD collection, laundry facilities, storage for your luggage, free WiFi, open kitchen for use.
