Friendly staff, clean and gorgeous rooms, wonderful restaurant where we had breakfast daily, the hotel provides a pass to a gym a few blocks away that is great. Would recommend this hotel and stay again if we were to return to Victoria.

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2016 via mobile

My husband and I decided on Hotel Rialto, Victoria, because one of our favourite places is Venice and of course Rialto is the name of that city's iconic bridge. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that this hotel had an interesting history and that it was heritage listed. It has recently been renovated and that we were the first... More

Great experience at the Rialto. Very friendly and helpful staff. Heaps of local knowledge. Great location as easy walk to the waterfront, markets and other points of interest. Close to public transport so easy to get a round that way as well Would recommend the hotel and the location.

The Staff at the hotel were very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the area. They were very helpful and offered clear directions to local places of interest. The bedrooms are large and comfortable. The hotel is in a great central location, easy to access restaurants, local sites and the waterfront. We would definitely stay here again.

We booked a 3-night stay for our 40th anniversary. Hannah at the desk surprised us with flowers in a vase and scrumptious chocolate-dipped strawberries that evening. ALL the staff was friendly and accommodating. We had a comfortable king size bed and a bathroom with an oversized tub and a heated tile floor. The room had a microwave and frig. The... More

The location is perfect - between Old Town and the waterfront. We could walk to the inner harbor within 6 blocks and to China town within 3. The staff was so helpful and friendly. They told us about the safe parking lot 1 block away which saved us the expensive valet parking charge. Easy drive to Butchart Gardens. The king... More

The stay was great... we got a great deal on Travelocity for a superior king room. Had a living room area and a separate bedroom with a modern bathroom. Very close to all of the... More

This hotel is really nice. We stayed in one of the junior suites and the room was very large with a large, well equipped bathroom. The location is not quite as nice as the waterfront. But it is close enough to easily walk and the overall decor of the hotel, combined with the friendliness of the staff makes it a... More
