Built in 1896 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.

We offer private and affordable rooms and suites, set in a 19th Century Victorian Guesthouse, right in the center of Downtown Vancouver. A friendly cross between a property Home, a B&B and a Travelers Inn, where you can mingle with travelers from all over the world in a quite, laid-back setting.

Your friendly hosts Janine and Ken, aswell as two friendly felines Nimue & Pippin, offer a relaxed, west coast alternative to the typical plastic hotel experience.

For the convenience of all guests there is roof-top sun deck and flower gardens, smokers refuge, comprehensive complimentary city map, guest library & huge DVD collection, laundry facilities, storage for your luggage, free WiFi, open kitchen for use.

Free Breakfast Kitchen

Downtown Center of Vancouver!

- Just 2 blocks from the CanadaLine City Center Station (transport Airport, 30mins.)

-Only 1 block from Granville Skytrain Station
-Two skytrain stops from the Bus/Train Station

Tip:
- cab fare is about $35.-
- LEAVE your car at home, if you are coming by car simply aim for downtown. The house is on 581 Richards Street @ Dunsmuir across from the park and the cathedral. There is no private parking but many public parkades around the block.
- Rent car first when leaving Downtown Vancouver, most sightseeing easy to explore on foot or with public transportation. :)
