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

The staff were so accommodating with every request from our forgotten toothbrush to leaving our bags while we explored the city after checking out:) Our room was luxurious and it was the best night sleep during our whole vacation! Comfy beds and pillows!! Loved the valet parking and having breakfast downstairs was delicious! We will be back for sure!

This hotel has loads of history, from its original Chinese ownership to its being something of a dive, to today where it is exquisite and quaint. Staff are friendly, rooms beautiful, location excellent and it was reasonably priced.

Lots of soaps, shampoo etc. We enjoyed a good breakfast in the cafe.However the thing that will keep us coming back is the staff. Without exception the staff were very polite and could not have been more helpful . In this day of poor... More

The hotel is situated in a very convenient part of the city with lots of shops, restaurants, etc. within easy walking distance. We... More

Perfect location to many attractions nearby. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Service was excellent and prompt, especially with the valet. I loved walking around the streets and seeing Victoria. The fresh muffins were so delicious, I could eat them everday.

Stay in the historic "old town Victoria" and relish the lovingly restored Hotel Rialto. It's a gem adjacent to the original City Hall and a stone's throw to many fine restaurants, including the in house offerings of coffee shop and award winning wine bar. The staff are unpretentious, friendly and very professional. Beds and linens are very comfortable. The heated... More
