          The hotel is a refreshing experience. Apparently it was completely renovated in the past few years and it shows it. The staff is completly engaged from the fron desk to the cafe to the cleaning staff. My room was on the top (4th) floor. Apparently the internet access is troublesome and I experienced one period where I could not access the internet. The staff told me they are aware of the problem. I booked for one night and stayed a second night. The front desk was extremely helpful in guideing me to the various must see places in Victoria and Butchart Gardens. Even suggested taking the express bus across the street to Butchart, a huge savings vs. the garden tour. As a result, I had a fabulous experience for my first visit to Victoria. I am staying with my sister in Coupeville, WA on Whidbey Island. She may go there at some point in the future and will plan to stay at the Rialto because of my favourable experience.

          Extremely comfortable bed and spacious bathroom. Bar/resto stylish with interesting cocktail selection. The staff were pleasant and efficient.

          Carpets in the hallways were dark and very 80's looking.

          It was close to everything, very convenient.

          The room that my boyfriend and i stayed in was extremely small, didn't realize how small it was when booking it. A bit disappointed with that. Room was soo small that the entrance door hit the bed....it was difficult bringing the luggage through the door when the bed was right in front of it blocking our way.

          nice and clean rooms, very comfortable, quite spacious compared to what you get elsewhere for the same price, great location, extremely nice staff

          This hotel is a great bargain for the price. Newly updated, room was totally comfortable and nicely appointed. The location was suberb, walking distance to all the main attractions. 5 or 6 blocks to the harbor, lots of shopping and great restaurants. We really liked the cafe for breakfast, great food and the cocktail bar serves exotic drinks and tapas, which we loved. Try the Ginger Buck... It was recommended by the very friendly wait staff. It was fabulous and sent us looking for all the ingredients which we found at two different bc liquor stores. Victoria is a thriving city with lots of fun things to do. We had a great time and highly recommend the Rialto. Would definitely stay there again. Cocktail anyone???

          We liked it from the moment we walked in. The service was excellent, we did request an upgrade and were happy with the room. We loved the Tapas Bar and Restaurant, very good ambience and excellent quality. The staff was great, breakfast- probably the best omelette in years - If we can make a few suggestions: might be a good idea to have a bar in the tub, quite deep to get out. Also, the light above the bath, very bright, difficult for relaxing. Lights for putting on make-up not so good. And, we did not like the fan that was on all the time in the bedroom. but, overall, 100%! One more thing, we did apply the Green option and did not see the $10 discount on our bill. Maybe leave it for a credit for the next time we come? Thanks again, and congratulations for such a beautiful addition to downtown Victoria. Ilona and Bill Beedie. Gabriola

          Price/Location were perfect. Staff friendly - particularly in Veneto Bar in lobby.

          Rooms were very small. Check-in a bit slow due to the fact that only one employee was working while several parties were trying to book in. Parking not on-site - but only a few blocks away.
