Well. Its cheap hotel right in the center of Victoria. The lobby looks great. Our room was very small, but clean.

There was really bad lighting in our room so we couldnt read in the... More

I recently traveled to Victoria on a business trip and needed a hotel to stay for one night, so chose the Strathcona. The hotel staff were friendly and the the hotel itself had a charm to it, being a heritage building. The location is great and there are quite a few eating/drinking establishments attached, so it is easy to grab... More

The Strathcona Hotel has 'old world charm' and an old fashioned feel, but had most 'mod cons' - but no kettle etc, which (coming from the British Isles) I did miss! Ice (avaialble from from the bar next door) came in a 2.5 kg bag, which lasted about a day in the fridge. I slept like a log - the... More

Stayed at the Strathcona Hotel, 919 Douglas Street, Victoria, B.C. Really a great location. Beautiful Victorian Landmark that offers very nice rooms, restaurant, pub, rooftop club, games room. Two blocks from the Inner Harbor. Tons of restaurants and lots to see from the location. Service is good, the room we had was clean. All in all a very nice experience.

We arrivied after a long day-trip at Strathcona and faced a very warm and gentle welcome. The resposible clerk at the registration desk checked our reservation via booking.com and corrected the prize (a view CAD less), which she was very nice from my point of view. The hotel is very nice with its roof terrace and the beach court on... More

My husband and I (in our 40's and 50's) reserved this hotel with trepidation as many reviews stated it was filled with loud party kids. But it fit our location and price requirements so we went with it. Glad we did! The hotel staff was great, particularly Kara who put us in a great and very, very quiet inside (not... More
