517 Fisgard is a clean and spacious new apartment in a renovated old building in the heart of all that is fun and interesting in Victoria. Our family of four spent two days and nights exploring Victoria and found almost all of it a close walking distance from the apartment. The apartment itself is very clean and well-enough furnished to enjoy a short or long stay. The bathroom was very clean, the kitchen is well-supplied, and the separate bedroom provided nice separation from our two children, with one sleeping on the nicely firm pull-out bed (it’s a brand new couch that becomes a solid platform bed) and the other on an air mattress that we brought with us. Communicating with the owner was very easy and straight-forward, and he met us upon arrival to show us around the apartment and how to work the security, as all of the doors and elevators throughout the building require an electronic key fob for entry – something we found very comforting. - Jan 2015

Our stay at Ryan's was great. He is organized and on-time. The location is perfect for downtown and the unit is clean, easy to use, and kid-friendly. Would recommend :) - July 2014

Ryan's apartment was spotless and and new, and the neighbourhood is great. Ryan was very professional and punctual, was very accommodating of my last-minute request, and communicated quickly and smoothly. - July 2014

This apartment was really nice and modern! Very spacious with great furniture for relaxing/feeling at home. The location is perfect. It is only a couple of blocks from the beautiful waterfront, the blue bridge, Johnson St shopping, Market Square, Government St and much more. Just inside Chinatown with fun and interesting shops and surrounded with delicious restaurants. Ryan (host) was very communicative, helpful and accommodating. Thanks again! - Aug 2014

Ryan was a great host. He was on time and very professional, and allowed a flexible check in time. The place was great, perfect location new appliances and very clean and modern which is the style I prefer. I would definitely stay there again and I will recommend his condo to friends. - Aug 2014

I could not have been more pleased with my stay! The location of this apartment was perfect for walking to everything Victoria has to offer! The space itself was immaculate and stylish and provided ample room for three people. Ryan was always an email away left us with plenty of suggestions for sights and restaurants. - Aug 2014

Ryan's Downtown Victoria condo at The Union. The condo itself is super clean and represented exactly as in the photos. The location is awesome, having a balcony over the main drag of Chinatown was always a nice place to sit and make plans for the day or unwind in the evening. There are lots of helpful things in the unit itself, like a popcorn maker, spices, and other little things that can come in handy. All in all, it's a great place to stay in Victoria given the prices of downtown hotels. Ryan was a great host, responded within 5 minutes whenever I texted him and he was flexible in allowing us some extra time without hesitation. Stay here. You will like it! - Aug 2014

Ryan was a fantastic host! His place was very clean and comfortable, and conveniently located just a short walk from most of Victoria's major attractions! Ryan was great to deal with and even took the time to give us advice on local bars/restaurants/cafes to check out! The building itself is very new and we felt safe while staying here, with secure key-card access to the building and parking areas. Inside the condo was very clean and tidy, Ryan provided clean sheets and towels and we even had a PVR and netflix! Thanks again Ryan for sharing your space with us! - Sept 2014

Our stay at the union downtown was great. Ryan was responsive and made himself available for any questions we had. The location is fantastic with quick access to downtown amenities and the unit was clean with plenty of room for the 3 of us. Thanks again Ryan for your hospitality. - Sept 2014

Great place to stay - check in and out was super easy - perfect location. Clean and cozy with all amenities!Would definitely stay again and recommend !

Central location that was close to everything! The place was as described and tastefully decorated. - Jan 2015

We had a fantastic stay! Highly recommend this unit. Will definitely give first consideration to staying here again. Thoughtfully appointed, near-new suite in the heart of Victoria. Pretty much everything you'd expect to find and more in the suite for a multi-day stay. There is even a popcorn maker and Netflix account access for rainy Victoria days when you need to stay in and recharge. Nice quality bath towels and good bedding. We prefer loftier pillows but a minor detail with so many other pluses in the suite. Stacking washer and dryer is a great bonus especially when traveling with a little guy. Sufficient hangers and closet space. Other travelers have contributed some basic food amenities as did we. Groceries can be purchased from Chinatown which is less than 20 feet from the Fisgard entrance. Well light, clean and secure underground parking. Garbage, recycling and compost collection available in the apartment and dispensed on the main collection area (Pandora side). The unit is quite quiet. There was expected ambient noise from neighbors especially from NYE celebrations but nothing too intrusive for us. It is an apartment building after all. Ideal urban location with great dining only steps away. At least 3 high-quality coffee shops (Bean Around the World, Habit & Union Pacific) within a 1 block radius. Great breakfast/brunch/lunch as well: Jam and Mo:Lé. Brasserie L'école is a solid choice for dinner. Check in was smooth, welcoming and very convenient. We'll be back! - Jan 2015

Perfect Victoria getaway! Ryan was a wonderful host, always available to answer any questions we had during our stay. The apartment was tidy, and accommodated any need we had. The building is located in the heart of historic Chinatown, with tons of restaurants, coffee shops and shopping destinations available within walking distance. Would definitely recommend, and stay again! - Oct 2014

Our checkin to Ryans' condo was seamless. He was waiting at the door when we arrived and gave us a quick tour of the place. Everything you could possibly need was available to us including a underground parking. We were in Victoria for the thanksgiving weekend to visit family and run the Victoria half marathon. The location of the condo was perfect for the marathon as it was a short walk to the parlaiment buildings where the start was. The condo was very clean and bright and the beds very comfortable. We found the website to be very accurate in regards to the listing. I would highly recommend this location. We would love to come back. - Oct 2014
