My husband and I recently stayed at the Bee & Thistle Guest House. We chose this B&B because of its high rating on TripAdvisory - and we were not disappointed. This place is great! We stayed in the Florence's Room - beautifully appointed (the bathroom...More
What a lovely inn. The rooms were all refurbished and everything was absolutely perfect. The bedroom contained a stocked refrigerator and coffee maker, and the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept in at a B&B. And if you used anything from the stocked...More
I picked this place because of its high rating on TripAdvisor, and because I thought it would be fun to stay at a B&B. The Bee & Thistle is fabulous, I would never stay anywhere else in Vancouver.

Quite simply the best B&B we’ve ever experienced. Sure, it’s a little pricey compared to some places, but it’s convenient to transportation on a quiet neighborhood street, our room (Lion’s Loft) was amazing, quiet, and comfortable, the breakfasts were huge, the privacy perfect, and Lynn...More
We chose the Bee and Thistle for our two-night trip to Vancouver based on Trip Advisor reviews. Although my husband was in Vancouver for business, we preferred staying at a B&B to one of the downtown hotels. It's a short walk to catch a bus...More
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy counter-culture. Straddling the line between sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups, and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit
of self-aware graffiti, Commercial Drive has resisted gentrification in favor of continuing to build a thriving den of affordable multiculturalism. Once known as Vancouver's "Little Italy," it has also been the immigration point for Guatemalans, Hondurans, and Portuguese to the city. The resulting hodgepodge makes for poetry readings in espresso cafes, social debates in early-open bakeries, and eco-activism posters pinned up in the many multi-ethnic markets in the area. Commercial Drive is where you go to feel like a local, and if you have them, bring the kids – The Drive has a number of bookshops, toy stores, and attractions to get them involved too.
