“Hotel Rialto weekend stay”
Reviewed 10 January 2017

It is a renovated/restored heritage hotel.
Past history was definitely sketchy, which makes the hotel all that much better.

Best part of hotel is the staff, really nice people that are proud of their hotel

Room Tip: we did not hear any road noise - the hotel is beside the major road into downtown by the way, the h...

Excellent accommodations, great food, amazing coffee, but most of all: fantastic service, friendly and still professional. I had the King Junior room which offered a view of Pandora. Food at both Cafe Vennuto and Venuto Tapas Bar was fantastic and the wine selection at Vintage is top notch

Wow! What a great place. We purchased this hotel through the Victoria Clipper website as a package. We went on New Year's Eve day, arrived early and luckily our room was available. We had the most wonderful room. It was huge with a lot of windows facing the street. Not really any noise from the street because the windows are double pained. Hotel is quiet and cozy and very clean. We were welcomed by Martin, he is fantastic, friendly and just a nice guy (he needs a raise if you are reading this - hotel management). We were very happy with his service and of our room. We got vouchers for discount breakfast and a welcoming cheese plate in the lounge/tapas bar. You can even get a discount at the liquor store next year by showing your room key. We loved our room, our stay there and the staff. There is a lounge/tapas bar downstairs and a little "restaurant". You can also get a credit for not using room service if you are staying more then one night for the tapas bar downstairs. We did have a non working heater in our bathroom but we let the staff know so they could get it fixed, we did well just by heating the room though at shower time.

We walked into this hotel to find a clean lobby with friendly staff. We were supplied with many vouchers for the cafe and the bar. There is a bus terminal across the road with various buses including one to the Butchart gardens. The room was of high quality with the view of the town hall next door. Would definitely come again and I would recommend the hotel to everyone.

Enjoyed complimentary muffin and coffee. Great tapas bar music and food is awesome. Room was quiet and cozy. A huge selection of wines in the liquor store. The cafe food was terrific. All the people working there were polite and helpful.

Everything about this hotel was wonderful. The room was beautiful and clean, the bed was so comfortable, the service was top-notch, the location was great and the staff was helpful and friendly. I loved cheese plate that I received when I arrived, and in exchange for declining room service, I received a $10/day credit to use at the cafe or tapa bar downstairs. I will definitely stay at Hotel Rialto again when I return to Victoria.
