The best location as it it next to the museum and the beautiful Beacon Hill Park. You can easily walk to the inner harbour and to great restaurants . Everything is so close. The rooms are delightful and feel very cozy. I would recommend the place and the price is very fair.

We needed to stay overnight in Victoria and decided to try somewhere new. Helms in is close to the harbour and walking distance from numerous restaurants and stores. The room was quiet, very clean and had a small kitchen. The room was nicely furnished and the bed was comfortable. The service from the front desk was friendly and prompt. The...

This hotel has a fantastic location, great rooms and very friendly staff. A great combination for a very reasonable price. If you check the location, you will be amazed. Across the street from the hotel is the best park in Victoria. If you have some time just cross the street and relax in the park. If you turn in the...

My room was huge with a separate bedroom with 2 queens, a living room and lovely kitchenette with full-sized fridge. I asked for quiet and was overlooking a beautiful lush inner courtyard garden with a glorious lilac tree outside the bedroom window. Yes the room needs updating but it was clean and all amenities were there and the hotel's location...

We stayed at Helms Inn during our recent visit to Victoria and were delighted with its location. The facilities were very comfortable though we really had too many cases to carry up the stairs, as there was no lift in our building. We will know next time to request a ground floor room, or travel lighter! All staff were friend...

This is my choice for a short stay . It has the warmth of being a small hotel and staff are very accommodating. The rates are very reasonable considering the location to downtown and the harbour front.

I love this hotel because it's just off the radar for the majority of tourists that visit Victoria but still within walking distance of everything. The rooms are huge, clean and well appointed, and the staff has always been friendly. The value for what you get here is top notch. I've stayed 5 or 6 times at least.

Then only place I stay when in Victoria. The nightly/weekly rates are incredibly low considering what you get out of it: location, clean & nice room, friendly & efficient staff. Helm's Inn is located in the heart of everything, you can literally walk to everywhere: Fisherman's Wharf, Inner Harbour, the Parliament, Ogden Point, Royal B.C. Museum, etc. I LOVE this...

Our experience at the beautiful Helm's Inn all around, excellent! Victoria, B.C. great city to visit, explore and take in all the breathtaking, gorgeous views & moments. :) Travelled with my Mom from Alberta and shortly after our trip she peacefully passed away (cancer).
