I had a lovely stay with Azmina who was very welcoming and friendly. Azmina was full of kind attentions and easy to chat with, yet discreet too. It was the perfect location for me and I enjoyed having everything I needed to make my own breakfast in the morning. I would be very happy to stay with Azmina again when I next go to Vancouver. Thank you so much Azmina! :-)
Azmina welcomed us warmly and went out of her way to make us feel at home in the cosy space she has made for guests to stay in. Although the location is just off Lonsdale with its bus connections, shops and places to eat, the street is quiet and leafy. Recommended!
If you don't want to have home sick, this is the one. Owner is so nice, place is clean and also she can cook very well. She is the best.
