    Bad wifi

    It’s a nice hotel, but the wifi is awful. It’s constantly cutting out.

    Great location

    Great location and wonderful staff. Beautiful hotel but smelled kind of musky in the room and the shower was poor. Could definitely use an upgrade as poor water pressure and old, low shower heads.

    Great little gem On English Bay, the rooms are excellent, and the staff is super friendly. But remember your staying in vintage hotel so it has some corks as An old hotel.

    Old building with very thin walls - the set up of our room was terrible and had our bed heads against the next room’s TV which was very loud. We had to switch room at midnight with our 4 months old baby because of noisy neighbours

    Sylvia Hotel is a great spot to spend time with family. Spacious uncluttered rooms, quiet location with an awesome view. So many great restaurants nearby, but we chose to enjoy Happy Hour in the lounge. Thanks for the wonderful cocktails!
