Travellers' Choice
Hotel Rialto is a boutique hotel with Italian flair located in the heart of Downtown Victoria. It is located close to the best attractions, shopping and dining that Victoria has to offer. The Heritage building has been home to a hotel since its construction in 1911. It has undergone extensive renovation to make it the bespoke boutique hotel that it is today. Your arrival always starts with a friendly smile, and warm greeting from the Rialto team, and artisan cookies from the bakery around the corner. The Palms Inspired Kitchen & Bar —one of the top cocktail lounges and restaurants in the city—is located on the lobby level and ready to surprise and entertain your palate. Next door at Vintage Spirits, insightful staff are eager to help you choose an excellent bottle of wine or a craft spirit. The Rialto is the ideal place to stay for a weekend getaway, business travel, or gathering with friends and families.

Great ‘euro-style’ hotel in heart of downtown Victoria. Comfortable beds, quality Italian coffee and real cream in the room, delicious local cookies when we checked in. Friendly genuine staff. We’ll be back.

We have stayed at Hotel Rialto a number of times. The staff are over the top helpful and efficient. The location is amazing. Walking distance to all downtown locations and a short drive to other attractions. the valet parking was super helpful and for only $22 per day, great value. The rooms are clean and efficient. The lounge is lovely! Will stay in the future without hesitation.

Me & My husband very much enjoyed 6days in Victoria with Hotel Rialto. We stayed in Superior(Danzo) King Suite. Bed mattress and pillows are very nice and comfortable. We loved to see beautiful sunset through the window everyday. One of my favorite part is bathroom heated floor!! It gives me nice warm feeling everytime i step on the floor. There is also ductless heating and cooling systems in bedroom and living room area. We felt safe during our stay (hand sanitizer in elevator, all staff are wearing face masks). perfect location for walking around downtown Victoria. And from beginning to the end, we would like to thank Mabel & Enes for your service. You guys are very friendly, helpful and kind. We will definitely come back here! If you're watching this review and planning to go to Victoria, stay in Hotel Rialto! You won't regret.

We stayed here for a night because it’s in our hometown and we got a gift certificate to the cocktail lounge downstairs. It was totally worth the money! The room was basic but clean, comfortable, and the money off our dinner reservation made the whole stay relatively cheap for what we got. Very happy with this deal. We are locals but if you’re from out of town this is a great location. Only downside is there’s no parking available at the hotel.
