We stayed in this characterful hotel in July, not in the best room as it was at the back and next to the ice machine which was in pretty constant use through the night, but the room was comfortable.

We had a great time at the Hotel Rialto. The Service was marvelous and the room was big enough for a family with 4 persons, the Hotel is matched with pretty designed pictures, mirrors and paintings. Very pretty location, ideal for a short walk in the city.

I was recently in Victoria for one night to celebrate my best friend's bachelorette party. My friend and I booked a double queen suite at Hotel Rialto since it was perfectly located in the heart of downtown Victoria and walking distance to all of the nightlife. Check-in was quick and easy and the front desk staff was very friendly and... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was spotless, had a great view, was blocks from the waterfront, and hotel staff was friendly and helpful. We had the king junior suite and it was so nice to have the extra room. The hotel has a modern, boutique style and a friendly atmosphere. We would definitely stay here again
