Budget hotels can be handsome, as in the gleaming hardwood floors, high ceilings, and chandeliers at this prettily restored 1898 European-style pension. This is one of Vancouver's best values—guest rooms in the two connecting three-story buildings have down duvets, Oriental rugs, lush draperies, and period furniture; a few have bay windows or mountain views. Some of the private bathrooms are outfitted with marble tiles and granite countertops (though some lack a tub).
Even the shared baths are spotlessly clean and nicely appointed. With three queen beds, Room 15 is a good choice for families.
