My daughter and I stayed here once before back in November. Warm and friendly staff who will go out of their way to help in anyway they can. Great little breakfast bar plus a nice tapas bar in the evening.

I booked this hotel for a couple of nights as I explored Victoria on my own. It was very clean, conveniently located, very accommodating and I felt safe staying there. There was parking available on the street which was great for me to leave my car during the evening. The complimentary hot beverage and snack was quite good and I... More

I recently stayed at this hotel with my family. I can't say enough about the excellent service of the staff, from my pre-arrival correspondence to checking in and checking out. The staff were friendly and professional. The vouchers for breakfast and a cheese plate were a nice touch. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. Would definitely stay... More

For conducting business in Victoria this place was a perfect choice. The rooms were well designed, nicely detailed and reasonably priced. Coffee shop was convenient and food was tasty. Maureen and the front desk were very welcoming and a pleasure to deal with. This is our new stop in Victoria. Good History to the building and the staff all around... More

Our second stay and I love this little hotel! Everyone is always pleasant and helpful. This time our room on the 4th floor had a nice view of City Hall and the chimes from the clock were neat. We heard the trucks in the morning, but nothing obnoxious. I would highly recommend staying there. The breakfast muffins are killer and... More

I stayed at Hotel Rialto for a quick overnight trip to Victoria and couldn't be happier with the experience. The hotel has been beautifully restored. My "room" was really a large suite, spotlessly clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. It had a lovely apartment style kitchenette with granite countertop and all the amenities. Unfortunately I was there long enough to make... More

Fantastic boutique hotel. We have stayed at what many call the "best" boutique hotel in Victoria and we found Hotel Rialto to be better than it in many ways and therefore we will now choose to stay at the Hotel Rialto every time we visit Victoria. We have also stayed at a few of the major big hotels in Victoria... More

The room was comfortable and a good size, with a charming view of the building across the street. The Rialto was walking distance to most of our destinations: the Inner Harbour, museums, Chinatown, and the Black Ball ferry that brought me across from Pt. Angeles. The staff is very professional, courteous, and helpful. My daughter and I enjoyed the complimentary... More
