This 1912 historic property has so much character. The room with the ocean view was clean, comfortable and had great views from all the windows. Have stayed at the Sylvia more than once and can’t wait to stay there again.

Needs updating and the wifi kept dropping. While I appreciated the historic aspects of the property, the location and upgraded bathroom, there was a stale odour which reminded me of a nursing home and further renovation would vastly improve the guest experience.

This property was convenient to location to Stanley Park, the shops, boutiques and restaurants on Denman Street and an excellent base to all other places in Vancouver. The breakfasts are second to none and the rooms are clean and well appointed. Will stay here again when in Vancouver.
