“Excellent Downtown Location”
Reviewed 11 March 2017

The Hotel Rialto is a very good boutique hotel located in Victoria's downtown. A heritage building, it was refurbished recently. We stayed twice and had a two queen sized room both times. The rooms were very comfortable and quiet. We had only one concern and that was one night the heating system was not working properly. The staff were great and provided us with a space heater. The staff also were very friendly and knowledgeable.

The hotel provided a free cheese plate and free café breakfast coupons each day . Both the café and the lounge were very popular. We recommend staying at the Rialto.

All the staff were top notch. Our room was clean, cozy and our bed super comfortable! We will without a doubt stay here again. I got ill and the concierge made me tea to go, as well as emailed me later on to inquire how I was feeling. A little goes a long way!

We were pleasantly surprised with our stay at Hotel Rialto. Staff was friendly from check-in to check-out. They explained everything to us and even suggested places to go and told us how to get there. The room itself was nice and we took advantage of the heated floors in the bathroom. Even though we were in the middle of the city, it wasn't noisy at all. We didn't have a car, but the hotel is right along the bus line which was also nice. We'd definitely stay again!

Very pleasant stay - super location, great staff, clean modern rooms. Parking nearby at civic lots - good value. Enjoyed lounge (and great cheese plate). Breakfast very good. We will be back!

While sound proofing good, would suggest rooms off Douglas Street.

Clean room, good sized, nicely furnished, great bathroom. Very good service- if I had to nitpick, valet fetching the car takes a bit(they said call 20 mins prior, they were serious) The room rate was very good, wouldn't hesitate to return.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Great location among many other things. Everyone at this hotel went out of their way to make our stay an enjoyable one. The desk staff are extremely cheerful, efficient and helpful. The rooms were immaculate and well kept, the furnishings are modern and the food at the restaurant is excellent. A couple of things I really liked included the heated floors in the bathroom, and the complimentary coffee and a baked good from the coffee shop as well as the complimentary charcuterie plate that came with our stay. Nothing negative to say about this downtown hotel. Recommended.
