Victoria Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was very nice, as was the breakfast. We were in easy walking distance from many restaurants, shopping and major sites of the city. The beach resort area was about 15 minutes away by car. The hotel has elevators.

The Victoria is a nice mid-range hotel just off Eyre Square. Rooms are large and comfortable. Good breakfast choices in the hotel. Discounted parking a couple of blocks away with in-out privileges. Elevator is small and slow, so a low floor is a good idea, especially if a tour group is checking in. Our only real complaint was the housekeeping. We returned from breakfast one morning to find a clean set of towels sitting outside our door. This was well before checkout time and before the breakfast hours had finished. The housekeeper never returned to make up the beds. The next day we were prepared and managed to intercept her leaving the towels and asked her to make up the room. Still, clean, comfortable, and convenient.

Stayed here in May for two nights. Didn't enjoy our stay at all. The rooms were not that clean for the money paid. Breakfast left a lot to be desired. However, the staff for the most part were very friendly. Won't be back here anytime soon.

We stayed at the Victoria Hotel for two nights. The room we had was spacious and comfortable, with a queen bed and a single for two of us. Despite the central location, the room we had (at the back of the hotel) was very quiet. bathroom and towels clean and there was a proper shower with decent water pressure. Breakfast was good value at 5 euros each - full cooked breakfast with vegetarian option plus toast, cereals fruit and bakery goods. There is no parking onsite but there is a multi story car park three minutes walk down the road where with a hotel stamp you can park for 8 euros per 24 hr. The bar is functional and is open late for residents who want a nightcap after an evening out. The staff v helpful and assisted us with the car hire company we had booked online so we were able to arrange a pick up at the hotel as the hire company was slightly out of town.

Hotel is not worth the money. You could pay less for a another hotel for better quality. The rooms ar not great we had to ask for a better room. But other room not much better. Id advise not to stay at this hotel. Not a nice hotel to stay in

We stayed at the Victoria for three nights in mid-September. Pros: The staff in reception, the breakfast room/restaurant and the bar were all very accommodating and friendly, and the location about a half block off Eyre Square was excellent - easy walking to pubs and restaurants. They provide laundry service which normally comes back the same day if you get it in by 9 a.m. (although once it wasn't returned until the next morning due to a problem at the laundry - not the hotel's fault.) Cons: We were traveling with another couple, and we both booked double rooms. The decor in each room was similar and both had queen beds, but their room was quite large and ours was so small that it was hard to find a place to open our suitcases, yet we both paid the same nightly price of E168. This rate did not include breakfast, which was available for E10/person. Our room also smelled strongly of stale cigarette smoke. Noise from the hallway was a problem at night. Parking is about a 3-block walk from the hotel and guests receive no voucher to cover it. This is a hotel that has good personnel, but it is seriously in need of attention to maintenance and upgrade of rooms and furnishings if it's going to charge those prices. We wouldn't stay there again.

We spent 3 nights at the Vic on our trip to Galway. The hotel is located a block away from Eyre Square and the Train Station. It was an easy walk to get to the Latin Quarter to visit pubs and shops. We had room 202 which faced the street and the Galway Docks. Traffic noise was noticeable even with the windows closed. I would request any room that doesn't face the front of the hotel and the street below. The staff was terrific. We had breakfast each morning (€10 each) in their restaurant. The place had a nice comfortable feel to it. The room had two beds and provided more than enough space for the two of us.

Spent a weekend in the Victoria Hotel in August with my husband. The staff were very friendly and the food was good BUT as I said above it had nothing to offer. We would never go there again. No atmosphere whatever, just a tired old place. Sorry!

Too high a price. The hotel is old, the curtains had holes and were torn as well as the carpets. Dirt on the floor and surfices. No sound isolation. Toillet flush barely worked. All flowers were plastic. Breakfast realy bad, inferior quality products, no variety and small portions. Dirt on the floor and chairs in breakfast room. The tables were"cleaned" by spraying some product on top of the tables without moving milk and sugar cointainers and other china! Then with a cloth around that same china and containers throwing what ever to the floor! Very disagreable. The staf was not trained, not even, at least, to be friendly. When I asked to borrow an adapter for my charger, I was told to by one from the vending machine in the hotel! Better stay in a dorm at a Hostel.

Stayed here for couple nights and found this hotel to be okay staff were fine breakfast was good, The room was okay all be it a bit dark and sort of old fashioned which may well suit some people, room was cleaned to a good standard and location is good just round corner from bus station and main square etc. When i visit Galway again at a push I would stay here again but would probably go to a more modern hotel.
