Beautiful hotel in downtown Victoria. Hotel Rialto offers superior customer service and hotel rooms. The bar downstairs was an added bonus with a nicely curated wine and beer list. Highly recommend for business travel or a romantic getaway.

We take an annual January mini vacation in Victoria - usually with another couple. This year we chose the Rialto for it's price discount and location. Our friends chose a room with Queen bed and we chose a junior suite with king bed, giving us the room to congregate when not out sightseeing/dining. We throughly enjoyed our stay. The staff... More

We planned to visit Victoria and found this lovely boutique hotel in the heart of beautiful Victoria. Our experience couldn't have been any better, right from the reservations to checkout. Enis and Jerry were the two front desk gentlemen who provided a great first impression. Our room, which was 'an inside' room, was very comfortable, clean, well appointed and quiet.... More

Wonderful staff, very welcoming. Like added touch of complimentary breakfasts and cheese plate in best bar in Victoria. Food good and worthy of eating there. Rooms very comfortable but beware of choosing room away from noise of nightclubs on back of premises. Other rooms are very quiet with lovely bathrooms and comfortable beds and quality linens.

Room was quite small but clean and well-appointed. Price was very reasonable for location. Staff was friendly and helpful. I didn't eat at the restaurant or bar but it was pretty happening Saturday night. Location was right downtown 5 mins walk to harbour, nice restaurants and bars nearby.

A nice clean very well staffed property with some amenities , the rooms were well renovated a tad noisy and could do with at least a bottle of water in the room for those visitors that are not sure of how great the tap water is in Victoria. The restaurant and the liquor store were very good.

Clean, modern room with nice decor. Very friendly and attentive staff from the moment you arrive at check-in. Ideal downtown Victoria location, close to shopping, restaurants and the downtown core. Delicious food at breakfast or evenings and great martinis at the restaurant/bar. I love this place!

When we arrived we had a warm welcome at the door and the desk experience equaled it. The hotel was beautifully renovated and the room was big and clean. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel
