A Lovely Two Night Stay

Location, Staff, Character of Hotel
We enjoyed our stay at the Fairmont Empress Hotel. As this is an older hotel, it met our expectations. We normally stay at much more modern hotels/resorts but heard so much about the Fairmont Empress we had to stay at least once.

Victoria trip

Location is good, the hotel is very old and out look is elegant
The hotel charge almost everything: parking, bf, even wifi, for the value of the money spent, the service and facility is only worth 3 star motel.

정말 좋아요!

빅토리아의 랜드마크, 역사와 전통, 고풍스런 인테리어
무척 비쌀거라 생각했는데 생각만큼 숙박비가 비싸지는 않아서, 역사와 전통이 있는 호텔에 한번 묵어보고 싶어 예약했어요. 기대를 많이 하고 갔는데, 역시나 무척 만족스러웠습니다. 직원분들도 무척 친절하시고, 영국풍의 고풍스러운 인테리어, 어메니티, 전망도 무척이나 맘에 들어요. 특히 침대 매트리스가 넘 편안하고 포근해서 기억에 남네요. 다음날 일어나서 시트를 들춰 매트리스 브랜드를 확인할 만큼 인상적이었어요. 방은 좀 좁은 편이고 아무래도 오래 된 호텔이라 그런지 욕조의 물이 시원스럽게 빠지지는 않아서 살짝 불편하기는 하지만, 다른 많은 장점들이 단점을 상쇄하네요. 적극 추천합니다.

빅토리아 최고의 호텔

웅장한 호텔의 전경
빅토리아 관광중 지나면서 항상 사진을 찍는 명소로 유명한 호텔이죠. 조금 오래된 면도 있지만 시설이 노후한 편은 아님. 명소호텔의 웅장함을 느낄수 있어서 좋았음.
