    We were welcomed by the desk staff member and processed effeciently. Our room was large, comfortable and well presented in the kitchen and bathroom.

    There was traffic noise, sirens. We had read in previous reviews that it was a quiet location. It wasn't, really, but didn't annoy us.

    It's a perfect location for me coming in on the ferry/bus and then renting a car at Budget. The staff was wonderful... I came in late and he was so accommodating. I like the price and have already told all my Victoria friends how great it is.

    This is our third stay at Helm's Inn and the hotel will continue to be our first choice in Victoria for its charm, its perfect location (Beacon Hill Park, Inner harbour, museum, parliament buildings, downtown), and its reasonable rates. Thank you, Helms for another grand visit to Victoria!

    Superb

    In the middle of downtown, just opposite the Royal bc museum and legistative buildings. The rates are very reasonable for the type of rooms you are getting. Built in kitchen makes it very convenient for cooking. Staff is very friendly and there are refreshments in the lobby to welcome you after a long journey. Definately worth the stay.

    Fabulous

    The location for Victoria is excellent: close to downtown, the BC Museum, the park, the Inner Harbour ,etc.. The staff were very helpful and the room (suite) was very comfortable. There is no elevator so the 3rd floor rooms are less desirable. We are elderly and were assigned a 3rd floor room and the staff helpfully changed us to the first floor.

    Location is excellent. hotel and rooms are very clean, parking at a reasonable cost, and rates are competitive if not better than comparable hotels.

    Street noise at times disturbing, but not excessive.

    The location was superb for the purpose of our trip. I had stayed there 10 years ago so knew of it. The suite was clean, well appointed, and had adequate amenities.
