Urban Suite Was Absolutely Perfect
The City Life Suites Urban studio apartment was absolutely perfect for our holiday in Victoria BC. Travelling from London and arriving in Canada Christmas eve, we really wanted a home away from home feel, being able to make a Christmas dinner and have a relaxing Christmas was paramount. Our first impression were the apartment was super clean with fresh contemporary furnishings and the location is second to none.
We were so impressed with the level of detail the owners had gone to to make our stay special and the equipment in the apartment was beyond our expectations, they really had not missed anything that we might need to make our stay comfortable.
We cannot recommend the City Life Suites more! The bed was super comfy, and we had everything we needed even tupperware to take pack lunches out and about with us, which really helped budget our holiday. They made our stay perfect and even helped us secure a wonderful Whale watching tour. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
Many thanks to Trish & Steve!

City Harbourside Suite - THE best!
This is our 3rd stay at the Mermaid Wharf (City Harborside Suite) but our first stay with City Life Suites. I have to say, this one was THE best.
First, working with City Life Suites was wonderful. They pay careful attention to all details to make sure your trip to Victoria goes smoothly. A nice welcoming touch is the fruit, bread and milk provided to get you started when you first arrive. In meeting with them on check out, you could tell that they genuinely care that you enjoyed your stay and didn't encounter any issues. They take pride in their apartment and ask for feedback to improve the stay for future guests.
The apartment was exceptionally clean, well laid out for efficient use of space, had plenty of storage space and had a fully equipped kitchen though we didn't use it as there are so many wonderful restaurants within walking distance (and we were visiting relatives). Our favorites were the Canoe Club (steps away from the building) and John's (good for breakfast).
It felt like the apartment was either recently remodeled or very well maintained as everything seemed new. The pictures posted accurately reflect the apartment. The location is perfect as you can walk to downtown: Chinatown is just a block away, walk across the Johnson street bridge to the Galloping Goose trail and the view of the harbor is right out the window!
We would definitely stay here again when visiting Victoria!
City Harbourside Suite - Whatever You Expect, You’ll Find It There
Me and my girlfriend just spent 10 fantastic days in this perfectly located appartment. - the city harbourside suite is just 1 min walk to the nicest pubs and stores - View from the living room over the water - roof terrace incl BBQ open for everyone - kitchen equipped with everything one might long for (incl sharp knives) - the whole apartment was amazingly clean - very comfortable bed - friendliest hosts we met so far. Whatever you expect, you´ll find it there! Should we ever come back to Victoria, this would be the place we would come to.

City Panorama Suite- clean, nicely decorated, comfortable
We recently visited Victoria for a week to visit our son. It was somewhat of a family reunion because our daughter also went along and we hadn't all been together for a few years.
On recommendations from close friends, we contacted City Life Suites and ended up staying in the City Panorama Suite which is a 2 br, 2 bath condo on the 18th floor of a very clean and secure building. We had a wonderful time and the City Panorama Suite was perfect. We felt very much at home. It was very clean, nicely decorated, comfortable and includes a designated indoor parking spot. It has a fully equiped kitchen where we prepared our breakfasts and a few family dinners.
The location is ideal because it's only a couple of blocks from the Inner Harbor and all the main tourist attractions. The owners were there to meet us when we arrived and showed us all the features of the building and the condo. We had a wonderful time and will definitely stay with them next time.

Cosmopolitan Suite - Spacious, beautifully decorated, immaculately clean.
We recently stayed at the Cosmopolitan Suite in downtown Victoria, BC. The apartment is very spacious, beautifully decorated, immaculately clean and had all the requirements to make the apartment a home away from home.
The rooftop garden and barbecue area, with a 360 degree view over Victoria, was a lovely bonus . The kitchen was well supplied with crockery and cooking utensils and even basic condiments available so we didn't have to worry about buying a whole packet for a small use. All we needed to do was unpack and we instantly felt at home.
Our hosts, Steve & Trish had gone to the extra trouble of preparing a welcoming bowl of fresh fruit on our arrival. The apartment is in a great location with restaurants, shops and harbour all within easy walking distance. Steve & Trish were most welcoming and happy to help with anything we needed.
I would happily stay here again if we return for another visit to Victoria.
