Sam was very nice, thus the second star.

My boyfriend and I were booked for a night at Between Friends, and the service was great during booking. Several days later, Simone contacted us to let us know that they had double-booked and would need to cancel our reservation. This was definitely an inconvenience as my credit card had already been charged, and we now need to find other accommodations... more

January 25, 2013

I stayed for a total of 9 nights spread over a 2 week period, after initially booking for 3 nights. Simone, the owner & Sam, the manager, are wonderful hosts and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The rooms are cozy & the breakfasts delicious! Secure car parking is available for a small fee. Located in... more

Great B&B, Fun Neighborhood
November 14, 2012

Lovely home, tasty breakfast, very welcoming hosts and wonderful location. We stayed at Between Friends when we traveled to Vancouver tour the University of British Columbia with our teenage daughter. The accommodations were perfect -- quiet and comfortable. The location is ideal, a half block from 4th Avenue, with its shopping and restaurants and bus lines leading directly to UBC,... more

Simone and her Staff do such a great job

This is the kind of place you want to keep as your little secret, as it is so great. Simone and her staff are so accommodating and the conversation at the breakfast is always so upbeat, interesting and memorable.
Perfect location in Kits, walking distance to beaches, great shopping, movie theatre and wonderful
restaurants. What can I say we love... more

Simone is the Best
June 30, 2012

Cute little rooms in an old heritage house. Bed was pretty good in the Seabreeze room. Simone says she is planning to replace it very soon. Simone is great and interesting to talk to. She obviously loves to meet the clientele. We sat with guests for breakfast from all over the world. The house is located about three blocks from... more

Fantastic B&B in Kitsalano - Great, quiet neighborhood
June 30, 2012

We found Between Friends and were quite happy with our stay-- a good value in Vancouver away from the bustle of the city and downtown yet close to all the action in this nice Kitsilano neighborhood. Very comfortable room, gracious, accommodating, and available host. Breakfast was copious and had many options including fresh fruit, granola, and a hot entrée. We... more

Warm & Friendly Place
June 27, 2012

Had a wonderful stay here last week. Simone is a warm and welcoming host who provided a great experience - and delicious breakfast! A big plus was the parking she provides for her guests. I reccommend this B&B to anyone visiting Vancouver.

We loved staying here! After driving many hours to get to Vancouver, we were more than happy to park our car in a secure parking garage and walk all over the city. This B&B is located is a quaint little neighborhood full of great restaurants and a natural foods store. Our room was very cozy, we had our own little... more

Verry nice B&B
March 30, 2012

My husband and I stayed at this B&B recently for two nights, it was a wonderful, comfortable place and the owner Simone is THE BEST, she goes all out for breakfast, and makes sure everyone is happy. The room was comfortable, we had the wedgewood room with it's own ensuite. I'm a fan and will be back. Price is very... more

Simone - you are fabulous! Quite possibly one of the best hosts I've encountered at a B&B - a genuinely lovely person and a real pleasure to chat with. You also make some lovely breakfasts. I spent 3 or 4 nites (can't quite recall now) back in August. I stayed in the Seabreeze room and enjoyed the view from my... more

The perfect Nook for your stay in Vancouver
September 29, 2011

Between Friends B&B in Vancouver is the perfect place to stay. Our hostess Simone has created a wonderful way-station catering to variety of international travellers. The rooms and surroundings are full of both heritage character and comfort and the breakfasts are delicious. Its a gem!

We booked the big room last minute for 3 nights and were advised by Simone that booking that particular room last minute did not have a cancellation policy.

August 24, 2011

We spent 6 nights at Simone's place and loved it. We stayed in the Seabreeze Room which even has a balcony where you have sun in the afternoon. The area is really nice, the beach not far away and the buses just around the corner. It's a very nice place to relax. The breakfast is fantastic!

There are two types of Yelpers: those who review pretty much everything, and those who review only places they love or hate. I'm in the second category, and I'm reviewing ABBBF because I loved it. Simone, the proprietor, is friendly and accommodating and makes a wonderful eggs benedict. We stayed in two different suites (the Wedgewood and the Zen), and both were great. The Zen suite is... more

SImone is the fabulous,friendly and fun owner of Between Friends, the fabulous friendly and fun B&B in Kitsalano.
I am back in Canada and going to stay at Between Friends again - we have quite a tradition now of people from the Uni of Adelaide (Australia) staying at Simone's. This will be the fourth year in a row.
Thanks Simone...see... more

Bewildered! Inflexible owner
September 17, 2010

The double bedroom upstairs has the most uncomfortable bed I have had since India! There is only one bathroom for 3 bedrooms. Bottom bedroom walls are paper thin & you will get woken up at 6.30am by the kitchen noise. The Proprietor overcharged me on leaving the B & B, showing no regard for my point of view at all.... more

August 18, 2010

I spent three nights at Simone's B&B, Between Friends, and was really glad that I did. Simone is a warm, welcoming and engaging host who makes sure that you are well taken care of. Her place is very well-kept, very clean and neat, and is also really charming. Although I stayed in the Fireplace Room - the basic room -... more

An average bed & breakfast but well located for Kitsilano and UBC
June 19, 2010

This bed & breakfast has no aspirations to be a luxurious pampering place as so many are today, but it's just fine as a no-frills place to stay. Friendly hosts and we liked the communal breakfasts; a great place to meet and chat to your fellow travellers. Breakfasts are ample but unadventurous. Requests for attention (in our case, a broken... more

The Between Friends B&B is simple but clean and nice. Simone (proprietor) is very friendly. Breakfast is tasty and the atmosphere relaxed. Located in the heart of Kitsalano and within walking distance o Granville Island (and downtown if your energetic) - there are lots of public transportation options, 4th Ave is great to shop along, and the B&B right around... more

We stayed with 5 people and had the B&B to our selves. They run another house next door and so we had some nice company for the incredible breakfast. Done with dedication and really good.

Zen Suite
September 27, 2009

Whilst the Zen Suite is finished to a high decorative standard I did not feel comfrotable as it lacked privacy - there is only a 'paper' wall separating the suite from the main reception area which leads to the dining room and there is no soundproofing so anyone could overhear conversations and we could hear people upstairs very clearly.

Wonderful place to stay, but maybe a little noisy
September 21, 2009

I should start by saying I will probably stay there again if I revisit Vancouver which I certainly hope to do.
Some of us stayed in the travel apartment, and we thought that was wonderful. An enormously comfortable bed and almost everything you need is there, in well appointed rooms. Well everything except milk & bread, but I found an... more

The hostess was very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was a perfectly balanced meal that kept us going strong until lunch.

Charming B&B in Kitsilano
July 22, 2009

We had a wonderful 3-night stay in the Zen Suite. The suite was huge--Simone (the owner) had originally designed it as her apartment before buying the house next door)--and had lots of nice touches. Clearly a lot of thought went into the design; it was very comfortable, particularly if you like the Asian flair. The bathroom was huge--with a separate... more

In the heart of Kitsilano is this charming home away from home. We shared the suite with our friends visiting from Texas.

Located right off 4th Ave W with its host of shops and restaurants at one end and the beach at the other end. Walk down to the beach and catch a 5 minute bus ride to downtown.

The house is early 20th century with hardwoods and roomy bedrooms. Friendly and helpful host.... more

This B&B is a gem. We stayed in the Wedgewood room. A very comfortable bed and a nice bathroom. The best part of Between Friends is Simone. Her warmth and humour are boundless.

Fantastic location, perfect setup for families
May 09, 2009

The only regret we have about Between Friends is that it is often necessary to book well in advance due to its popularity. Centrally situated on Arbutus Street in the Kitsilano neighborhood you can walk to great amenities (grocery store, coffee shops, shopping, drugstore, etc.), the beach and a great park, and even downtown if you are fit - if... more
