“Nice weekend getaway”
Reviewed 5 November 2011

Great location just a short walk from the nightlife of Banff and an even shorter walk to the river. Elk were the first wildlife spotting of the weekend. Very nice room and very quiet especially considering how many people we saw at breakfast. It was nice to have my gluten free preference met. Thanks for a nice escape from the city!

Not sure I understand some of the other comments. I think of a hostel as a place where multiple people stay in a dorm-like environment. This is nothing like that. We had two different stays here, and both rooms were large, beautiful, and modern. We stayed in the king room on the main floor and had a huge room, bed, and private bathroom for an excellent rate. Later we stayed in the king room in the basement, which again had a huge room and bed. (One note: if you're very large or overweight, the shower and toilet area in this room are rather small, so you might want to pick another).

As for the location, it's an easy walk to town, and you can pick up a walking-biking trail right across the street. If you walk or bike one way for about a mile, you get to Bow River Falls. If you walk or bike the other way, you get to the Cave Basin area, which is currently closed, but the surrounding ecosystem is very interesting and you can continue biking or hiking to another waterfall. I can only conclude that those who didn't like the area are sedentary.

As for the view, I'm not sure what the person who said there is no view was expecting, but if you eat breakfast in the front room, you're looking right out the window at a giant snow-covered mountain. I certainly don't have that kind of view at home.

The rate was good, the staff was friendly to us, the manager was friendly and accommodating, and we enjoyed the granola and pumpkin muffins at breakfast.

Room Tip: King room in the basement is a good room but has a small bathroom. Preferred the king room on the ma...

This is a real jewel in Banff - beautiful, charming, very clean and spacious rooms. I loved the walk-in closet! A delightful breakfast (included!) and great service. A must stay!

Its a very short walk (5-10 minutes) into Banff, and on a quiet side street with big trees.

The Pension is located about half a mile from the center of Banff, along a rather scruffy road across the river. The rooms are perfectly adequate (though our bathroom was tiny), the staff are helpful, and the breakfast is very ordinary. There are no views, and isn't that why one goes to Banff? I have no specific complaints, other than the price which is very high for what you get. On the other hand I can find nothing to enthuse about. The other accommodations at similar prices that we experienced during our five days in Banff/Lake Louise/Jasper were markedly better.

Our accommodation was excellent, as was breakfast. Very quiet location close to downtown along side river.

We had advised hosts that we were arriving on Rocky Mountaineer. They came to collect us at station. Train was 2 hours late, I had made reservation for a meal at a restaurant in Banff for which we were very late. Our host phoned the restaurant explained our situation and the restaurant stayed open to serve us. Superb service from Bannf Boutique. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Have upstairs room on front if possible

We spent 4 nights at Banff Boutique Inn - Pension Tannenhof. The room was really nice and spacious. We had share bathroom. Both room and bathroos were really clean. The breakfast was good, with bread, homemade granola, fruit. It was a pity that bread and bagels were not fresh but from the supermarket.
The pension is really close to the city center, in a quite area of banff close to the river.
