Property Information:

Built in 1896 during the height of the Victorian era and the west coast gold rush, 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. Our unique property was originally built as a guesthouse for travelers seeking adventure and their fortune in the wild west of British Columbia during the gold rush.

We offer well appointed private rooms, a superb dorm and our Loft with ensuite toilet and shower, set in a 19th Century Victorian Guesthouse, right in the center of Downtown Vancouver. A friendly cross between a home, a B&B and a Travelers Inn, where you can mingle with travelers from all over the world in a quiet, laid-back setting.

Our friendly felines Nimue & Pippin will happily share their house with you. We offer a superb relaxed, west coast alternative to the typical plastic hotel experience.

For the convenience of all guests we have a roof-top sun deck and flower gardens, smokers refuge, custom maps, guest library with huge DVD collection, laundry facilities, storage for your luggage, free WiFi, and a large kitchen with all you need for your use.

Free Breakfast Kitchen
We stock all the basics you need to make your own Canadian Breakfast in our kitchen. (bacon, eggs, veggies, pancakes, cereals, many types of fruit, coffee, and many types of tea)

Prices do not include Cdn Tax.

Cancellation policy: 7 days prior to arrival
