Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

You cannot beat the location of this condo. We had a car but left it in the garage the whole 3 days we were there. Easy walk to wharf, Beacon Hill Park, the museum, and all kinds of shops and restaurants. The condo. is spacious, clean, and stocked with everything we needed. We enjoyed playing pool in the common room. The owners were very responsive to questions and allowed us to check-in early.

I gave the condo. 4 stars instead of 5 because, as others mentioned, it is on a busy street with buses idling alongside the property at all hours. This is probably only an issue if you like to sleep with the windows open as we do. Also, I would have liked comfortable chairs for reading. The ones provided look nice but you can feel the wood frames when you sit in them. The outside chairs are functional, but nothing you want to sit in for long. While we had clear instructions on how to pick up the key, there was no mention of how to get to the condo. building after that. We stumbled around until we found it, but more instructions would have been nice.

Good location

  • 4 of 5

Very central location and the apartment is small but well equipped with very clear instructions.

If you're a light sleeper, take ear plugs and an eye mask as the blinds do nothing to keep out light, and there's a fair bit of street noise at night.

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

It was a super location downtown. The condo was well maintained, quiet and bright. We watched the sun come up, drinking our coffee on the balcony. We could see the water and enjoy the downtown. There was a great socializing area with a pool table and private patio area which the manager kindly let us use. We were able to have a relaxing and cozy experience in high end style. Deidre was an awesome host, friendly and helpful. I luved this wonderful gem of a condo.

Perfect location for a car free visit to Victoria

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children ages 6 and 9) loved our stay at The Astoria! We only wished we could have stayed longer and definitely plan to return. This condo is comfortable with all the amenities we needed. Since we only stayed for 3 nights we did not cook any of our own meals but the kitchen was fully stocked with all your cooking needs. If you don't plan on cooking the condo is walking distance from many, many restaurants, cafes, and pubs. Also within short walking distance is The Empress, the Inner Harbour, Downtown, The Royal BC Museum, Miniature World, Bug Zoo, etc. It is about a 20 minute walk to Beacon Hill Park which our girls very much enjoyed. The Greyline Double Decker Hop on Hop Off Bus also stops directly across the street at the Chateau Victoria which was wonderful as we spent a whole day seeing the sights around Victoria and were able to get off right at the condo on our way home. The condo has big beautiful windows which are perfect for watching the Downtown lights at night. There is also a lovely balcony my husband and I enjoyed sitting on each evening with wine after the children had gone to bed.

My only reason for providing 4 stars instead of 5 was that the TV remote's batteries were dead so it was troublesome to turn channels and the tub seemed to drain very slowly during showers (but it did eventually drain after). Neither of these issues were a big deal nor would they stop us from booking again but just a few things for the property management to fix for next time :)

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place for our family of five to stay while in Victoria and we loved this unit in the Astoria. The check-in instructions were clear and easy to follow, there was secure parking provided, the unit was clean, comfortable, and close to everything! We hardly used our car because we could walk to most anything that we wanted to from the Astoria. I would highly recommend staying in this unit.
