Ordentlich aber spartanisch ... Dieses sehr alte Haus ist insgesamt ok. Die Zimmer sind klein. Aber dass man nur von einer Seite in und aus dem Bett kann akzeptiert man, wenn man schon mal das gemeinsame Bad in Kauf genommen hat. Ärgerlich ist der "Frühstücksraum". ...

Description - Guesthouse

Built for wilderness-bound travellers in 1886 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.

With just five guestrooms, a romantic View Room and a big sunny Penthouse Loft, your friendly hosts Janine and Ken offer a relaxed, west coast alternative to the typical plastic hotel experience.
Here, in the heart of the city, you are only steps away from just about anything you feel like doing, eating, shopping for, or seeing while here.

For the convenience of all guests there is an entertainment room, roof-top sun deck, flower gardens, smokers refuge, free bicycle hire, comprehensive complimentary city map, guest library, laundry facilities and storage for your luggage.

OPTIONAL BREAKFAST: We have a big open kitchen stocked with everything you need to create your own Canadian Breakfast (Bacon, Eggs, Pancakes, etc..), decide when you arrive.
