I rented the Heritage View Suite from August 2020 to Feb 2021 as I was on business in the Victoria area. The suite was gorgeous exactly as shown in the photos online. The beds were super comfy. The enormous deck with the view of the harbor was a bonus to chill on on weekends. All info on the suite is documented in a binder and if I had any additional question the wonderful hosts Rod and Melissa of City Life suites were available. The location is great in the heart of china town. Its walking distance to everything. The best coffee of ever is across the street at Habit. Harbor Air, the Empress, and Government Street are minutes away, Grocery Markets and restaurants are all within steps. One of my fav places to grab brunch was Boom and Batten just across the Johnson St Bridge. My coworkers also rented suites from City Life suite in various downtown locations and had great experiences. I can highly recommend City Life Suite for your next stay in Victoria.

We thorougly enjoyed our stay with City Life Suites in Victora last winter. We stayed in two suites in the middle of downtown; everything was within walking distance so no car was needed. Stayed in the Paroramic Suite and the Nexus Suite.. Rod and Melissa were extremely helpful; they even helped move our belongings and groceries from one suite to the other. Both suites were full stocked; we lacked for nothing! They deserve a 10 out of 10 for their efforts and the condos that they rent!

I am writing this review into the 2nd week of our 2 month stay. Our unit is The Cosmopolitan located in the Era building on Yates St. We are very impressed Excellent downtown location - walking distance to everything; 75 steps to the Odeon Theatre; 150 steps to the Liquor Store and an exceptional Asian Restaurant; across the road from a nice pub with terrific Happy Hour specials. A modern, posh, quiet, very secure, immaculate building. Our unit is bright, exceptionally clean and very well kitted out. The attention to detail is impressive. The bed is sooooooo comfy. Melissa & Rod are very charming and accomodating. I am known as a bit of a "fusspot" and can be very discerning. If I could provide a 10/5 rating, I would with no hesitation. Highly recommend City Life Suites.

City Life Suites is an excellent company. Melissa and Rod are professional, efficient, prepared, and responsive. The suite had EVERYTHING we needed. Perfectly clean, extremely comfortable, tastefully appointed, and the view is All That. The building location is perfect, both for its views and its walkability. Victoria is our favorite June City, and next time through, we would certainly go with City Life Suites again. With one caveat. We were there one month. Exterior re-painting began the day we arrived, so we had painters hanging in our window at unpredictable times throughout the month. We could not use the balcony (and had to store the balcony furniture inside the unit). Of course maintenance is both desireable and necessary. But as a one-month renter during “painting month”, I think a heads-up is fair, if not an opt-out option.

Dear Roy & Ting, Thank you so much for your review of the Horizon Suite in Victoria BC and also for your kind words for our family owned agency! The view from the Horizon Suite are amazing, overlooking Ogden Point and the famous Inner Harbour, and yes, the location can't be beat! The Astoria Building is requested time and time again from our repeat guests! We try very hard to make sure everything is just perfect for our travelers so this painting project was definitely a thorn in our side. It effected only a few of our suites in the Astoria, however unfortunately, your balcony was one of those effected. If we would have known in advance of what side the painters were starting on we would have absolutely given you some advance notice. We were unsure of what to expect as communication between the trades and building lacked, but we are thankful it will be another 12 years before the building is repainted again! We look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Victoria! Most Sincerely, Rod & Melissa City Life Suites Ltd Victoria BC
