    The Dougie


    This place is decent for budget travellers who want to be close to the center of town and have their own room. The hotel is pretty well secure considering what's outside. Now for the downside. Homeless people and teenage drug dealers tend to gather around the hotel's area. The hotel is located on Douglas Street and as a result it experiences a great deal of noise from traffic and late night revellers. If you actually want sleep you may want to consider somewhere else.

  • Bad Location in Downtown


    I personally have not stayed at the Hotel Douglas , but I can comment on it's location. It is located at a busy downtown intersection close to many bars and pubs. It has a liquor store and pub right on the ground floor. It is located on a corner of the street that has a lot of fights, drug deals and less-than-trustworthy loiterers. They employ private security guards to keep the front door area safe. The neighbourhood is very noisy at night.

    I have heard reports from actual young (early 20s) travelers who stayed in the Hotel Douglas. They were so put-off by the noise that they left after one night and went to a different hotel nearby.

    According to the hotel website they are recommended by Rough Guide and Lonely Planet... so perhaps they are good if you are a serious budget traveler. The link to their website is below.

    Unique Quality: Located close to major tourist attractions, shopping areas and central to city bus routes.

    Directions: Downtown, about five minutes walk from shopping mall and ten minutes (max) to the inner harbour.

    For budget travellers hoping to get their own room and bathroom, be close to the center of town and all for a reasonable price, the Douglas is one of the best offers in town. Rooms are comfortable and spacious, with a slightly English flavor. Hostel rooms are also available. In the lobby, a small cafe, Cafe de la Line, serves coffee, drinks, as well a quick meal.

    Unique Quality: A word of advice, although the hotel is fairly safe, homeless people and teenage drug dealers sometimes gather around the hotel's area along the northern end of Douglas St. The best thing to do if you encounter them is to just ignore them.

    Directions: Take the #70 bus to the Victoria downtown. The trip to town may take a while as several stops are made along the way. Please ask the driver for a stop closest to Douglas and Pandora
