Very enjoyable four month stay......

  • 5 of 5

"CITY LIFE SUITES", did an admirable job on arrival & departure. They were always available to answer questions that would arise, as we were staying there for 4 months. The app't was as shown, very clean, very well stocked with all you would need. Great TV , approx. (40 inch), WI-FI (unlimited) was excellent, we streamed a lot ! All major appliances worked perfectly ! Noise from within the building was not an issue. This was our first time in Victoria, "IMO", the location was beyond excellent. The harbour is 3 blocks, Irish Times Pub, 2 blocks, you can easily walk anywhere, the downtown is actually compact. The hockey rink is 4 blocks away, superb hockey , Junior A , WHL,...... Many, very nice restaurants are situated , all easily walkable. Shoppers Drugs is about 75 yards away, for quick access. Reserved, underground parking was very easy & handy. All in all, we were extremely satisfied & CITY LIFE SUITES, were prompt, professional & a real pleasure to deal with.....

Lovely stay in downtown Victoria.

  • 5 of 5

The Arta Suite provided an ideal spot for our stay in Victoria. It was a bright, comfortable and well-appointed condo with everything you could need provided. Groceries, restaurants, entertainment and the ocean all close by which made for a very walkable experience - just what we wanted. Melissa and Rod from City Life Suites were wonderful - so friendly, accommodating and attended to every detail. We will definitely be back!

Cancellation Policy
Our reservation and cancellation policies must be more restrictive than a large hotel since a cancellation is very disappointing to both the guests and to us as, in most instances, we will have turned away other guests who would have reserved the apartment for your dates.
Our cancellation policy states that, "should you fail to use your confirmed reservation, we reserve the right to retain all funds received as liquidated damages until the unit is re-rented at the same rate for the same time period. If the latter occurs we will retain a $100 CAD administrative fee."
We recommend you consider trip cancellation insurance to protect your vacation.
We are required to charge taxes on all reservations. If your stay however is one month plus one night (or more) taxes are exempt.

Manager's Cancellation Policy

  • 100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
