Amazing location and clean rooms. You can definitely fell the history of the building. Staff were so nice. Wish they served breakfast in the hotel, but they had a fun lounge in the evening. I’d stay there again.

Hotel Rialto is very clean and the location is very strategic. Everything is within walking distance - Starbucks, 7-11 stores, china town, restaurants, mall, shops, the Parliament building, the Fairmont Empress hotel and many more. Staff are very friendly and helpful, especially Jin and Trevor. The housekeeping staff are very thorough with their cleaning. The hotel provides coffee and fruits near the checking counter. There's a restaurant downstairs that opens at 4pm for dinner. The only bad thing about Victoria is that there are too many homeless people and not enough shelters.

lovely hotel, nice well equipped room and polite helpful staff. A good bar too. Common areas (elevator and corridors) could use a bit of sprucing up and there seemed to be a lot homeless and otherwise struggling folk in the surrounding area. I'd definitely stay there again though, super convenient for downtown

This used to be a very run-down hotel with questionable clientelle but, after having been bought several years ago, it has become a lovely boutique hotel. The area of town has also been revitalized so it is more inviting.We forgot to mention the complimentary drinks, but there were two high quality sparkling water beverages in our room for us. The room we had was already at their top tier so an upgrade wasn't possible
