John's place is quirky and comfortable, ideally placed within easy walking distance of the Japanese Garden and park. It is also really close to 23rd Avenue with all the bars and restaurants. We stayed there gor five nights which went by in a flash! Highly recommended

Super nice location just a few blocks from a ton of restaurants and shops. If you don’t mind a bit of a long walk... downtown and the Japanese Gardens are about a mile (20 mins) away. Street parking was easy to find. The place itself is in a basement and is very large and clean.
