“A nice apartment but hot and noisy”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The apartment itself was extremely well equipped and comfortable - it was at 1010 Howe St - and our welcome from Amelia was friendly and helpful. The location made it very easy to access the major sights but it's proximity to Granville Street was a problem as the noise from clubbers went on thought the night until about 4am. This and the fact that the apartment was very hot made sleeping really hard.

Thank you again for staying with us. You are a lovely guests and we greatly appreciate your feedback.

This year, Vancouver has had an amazing summer - sunny & hot temperatures. We do keep our guests comfort in mind by providing 2 portable air conditioning units and tower fans in the suite at no extra cost. It is extremely rare in Greater Vancouver to have private residential apartments with central air conditioning because of our generally cool temperate climate with low humidity.

With the convenient central location coupled with the warmer weather, the weekends do get livelier on the streets. During the summer, Granville St is pedestrian only (no cars) during the weekends to host lively entertainment, festivals and street fairs.

We hope you still had a lovely visit to Vancouver and British Columbia overall. If you do come back, we would love to have you again - in a different suite perhaps. Returning guests enjoy 10% OFF their stay. Happy Travels!

Thank you again for staying with us. We greatly appreciate you sharing your experience.

I am so sorry to hear that you were not comfortable during your recent stay with us in our 6th floor suite. I can greatly empathize with the warm/hot temperatures you had to endure. This year, Vancouver has had an amazing summer with the longest stretch of dry and hot temperatures in July/August on record. And as you pointed out, it is rare in Vancouver to have apartments or houses, for that matter, with central A/C due to generally cool to temperate climate and low humidity. Keeping our guests' comfort foremost in mind, we do provide portable A/C units in each of our suites to help cool down along with tower fans in both the bedroom and living areas. Having a portable A/C unit is not commonly offered in other private property rentals in the city.

With the convenient, central location Downtown, we are in the heart of the city. Walkable to Yaletown, CBD, Davie St village, Granville & Robson St. Vancouver has really grown into a vibrant city. There is easy access to public transit, restaurants, grocery shopping, and to various sights and tour drop-off/pick-up points.

The suite is a bright, corner 1-bedroom apartment condo at 600 sq ft. Decorated with updated furnishings and well equipped in the kitchen with full-size Whirpool appliances (white) - stove/oven, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher. Toaster, kettle, microwave, cookware, and dish ware are all provided for guests to have the flexibility and choice to eat-in at their leisure. The countertops are laminate and the floor laminate hardwood. The 4-piece bathroom has a 60" bathtub with shower, vanity and toilet. The building is over 20 years old and well maintained with friendly building staff and night security. Our professional cleaners come in after every stay to ensure that it is ready to accommodate our next guests. Also, parking is limited in downtown and we have secure underground parking in the building for guests to go freely in and out as they choose.

Thank you for kindly for your high rating (4/5 stars) on Location, Cleanliness, Check-in and Service. Although some things were out of our control, we are truly grateful that you recognize our efforts in these areas of the guest experience. Much appreciated.

Many thanks again!
