Stayed at Varscona in Edmonton July 13 & 14. Excellent location, and hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and very nice. Not too far from the Edmonton Mall. Would definitely stay here our my next visit to Edmonton.

We stayed at the Varscona for three nights, took a week in the sticks then returned to the Varscona again at the end of the trip before flying back to the UK. Air Canada lost our luggage for five days, so when we arrived at the hotel, we just had a small bag and nothing else. The Reception staff gave... More

Years ago I lived in Edmonton and this was the 'Inn on Whyte' and/or the Renfrew Inn. It always looked a bit dumpy back then, but that has all changed now! This hotel is completely and tastefully renovated and redecorated. Free parking and good Wifi. The room was comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was really good, plenty of selection, and healthy... More

Booked in here short notice because its location is close to the Jubilee Auditorium where we were going to see the musical Wicked.

A well-located small boutique hotel with a warm and welcoming ambience, friendly staff and immaculate rooms. The breakfast (included in the price) is delicious with an array of choices and the "Happy Hour" provides guests with a lovely complimentary wine and cheese. The valet service (also free) is invaluable! And I would like to emphasize that the Housekeeping staff was... More

We recently spent 2 nights at the Varscona Hotel while visiting family in Edmonton. It was ideally located only a few blocks from our family and in a neighborhood full of restaurants and boutique stores. We really appreciated the free parking and internet!

I have stayed at the Varscona three different times while visiting my son at university, and every time I am amazed at how accommodating they are with small things like early check-ins and late check-outs.

On a recent trip to Edmonton I stayed at the Varscona primarily because it was close to my work so I skipped the usual downtown hotels Ive visited before. While a bit cheaper than some of the major chains the price gap didnt make up for the cons. The rooms are small and dated. The mattress had seen better days.... More
