          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Excellent location close to Stanley Park and convenient for downtown Vancouver. Kitchen facilities very practical with a couple of supermarkets in close proximity.

            Very small lift - totally inadequate for size of building. Had to wait significant amount of time for lift.

          • Single
            4.6

            The only thing one may like about this hotel is that it is in the downtown vancouver.

            I booked Riviera only because I didn't find many options on the internet about other available accommodations in the area. The hotel is only for lodging and there is absolutely no arrangement for any type of food or beverages, not even breakfast or any other meal. Some of the kitchen appliances provided in the room were pretty old fashioned with no instructions on how to use them.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            The rooms were a little out dated, but very clean and well kept for the most part - the room even smelled of cleaning products when we arrived, so we knew it had just received attention. We had new linens/ comforters, which made the experience much, much better to have the fresh and updated bedding. The desk staff was friendly and helpful. Included parking (above and below ground options), which was a plus.

            The bathroom really did need a remodel. Although the bathroom was clean, the heavy duty wall paper was separated from the wall in large sections along the seems and corners. The narrow shower was a little cramped with the fabric curtain brushnig on my legs and shoulders - a little uncomfortable - one of those curved shower rods (that are popular in hotels) would be an easy fix. Also, there was very little counter space - some extra shelves would be helpful.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Location on Robson is excellent for a city trip to explore downtown area of Vancouver

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            A very spacious one bedroom apartment, conveniently situated and with lots of storage space. Comfortable bed. Lots of potential. Serviced every day.

            Had a great kitchen but it was poorly equipped, with no pots and pans so couldn't save much money self-catering. Why have stove, oven and microwave with no pots and pans? Hotel generally a little 'tired'.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Location was excellent. Walking distance to restaurants, Stanley Park, English Bay and other tourist attactions. Indoor or outdoor parking. Having the balcony was a bonus. Sitting out there in the morning and evening was fantastic. Will definitely stay there again when in Vancouver.

            The sofa was old and uncomfortable. Other than that everything else was great.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Room very clean with sparkling white sheets. Lots of space and useful kitchette with fridge/freezer, cooker, microwave, toaster, plates, dishes, cups and glasses. Also two easy chairs and table and chairs. A very enjoyable stay and would certainly go back.

          • Family with children
            9.2

            Spacious clean room. Very good location at busy shopping street about 500 m from the centre. Free guest parking.

            Door was thin and noise (or even normal voice) could be heard from the corridor. This is not any problem, if your neighbours do not return very late at night as it was in our case.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Location was perfect for walks or short rides to the waterfront, Stanley Park, Chinatown. Liked the view and spacious suite with full kitchen use.

            The heat was turned off for the summer which would work for most summers but not this cold one.

          • Single
            7.8

            Great location. Room was actually a suite, so had plenty of space. Clean and tidy. Comfortable, and quiet.

          • Single
            9.2

            I had a spacious suite (separate bedroom, living room, kitchen), somewhat dated in decor (a new couch would have made all the difference), but clean and comfortable. The two people at reception were helpful and friendly. Good facilities for a family, great location, excellent value for money.

            Because of it's well worn decor, I wouldn't recommend this for a romantic weekend, unless price is a consideration.

          • Family with children
            2.4

            Nothig it is the worst hotel in my life.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            The lady at the front desk was very nice. The location was good. And the parking was free. The room was a suite and had a full kitchen, which was nice.

            Wi-Fi internet was slow and going in and out. Shower was small. Did not have A/C. Late checkout fee.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Thank you so much! When we arrived the person at the reception hellped us a lot with wonderful advices where to go and what to see. The room is clean and nice, excellent service. We're staying 2 more nights and is going to advice our friends to chose this hotel when they come from Calgary for few days to Vancouver.

            Large and clean rooms.

            Late check in (3pm) and the single elevator was always packed full of cleaning supplies.
