We booked this hotel using hotwire.com and got a good deal. Victoria is getting expensive as far as hotels go, but this is a good mid range option with lots of bang for your buck. We stayed for 2 nights. We were in town for Culinaire. I do research on any place I eat or stay while on vacation. I...

This was my 2nd stay at the Rialto and GF's 1st. Can't rave enough about it, it's a beautiful hotel! Amazing bar/restaurant , staff and the food is top notch!! Hotel Rialto is perfectly situated in Victoria, almost everything is right close by. The furthest walk would be to the Legislature and Museum which would be about 15-20 mins…not that...

We found this place sight unseen, without talking to anyone we know who stayed there, solely by trip advisor and the corresponding reviews. What a wonderful surprise! Perfectly located close to the harbor, shopping, restaurants and even the Memorial center, we could not have picked a better location. We didn't need our vehicle nor did we ever use taxis -...

Hotel is just steps away from shopping, restaurants, galleries, waterfront etc. Very clean and comfy. Staff is very friendly and competent too. I needed a special favour for check-in and this was arranged before our arrival by lovely Hanna. In the morning we received voucher for beverage and pastry. Nice touch! There is a nice tapas bar on the ground...

We usually stay at budget hotels when we travel, and this was somewhat more expensive than our norm but still affordable and turned out to be great value. It is incredibly central in Victoria - corner of Douglas and Pandora, with valet parking or...

This review is on behalf of my husband who travelled to Victoria for business: The room was nice and spacious and the welcome cheese plate was a nice touch. The room rate was very reasonable. It's convenient to have 2 restaurants and the liquor store connected to the hotel and the central downtown location is great. I will definitely be...

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...

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!
