i only had a quick overnight at this hotel as i was passing through on business but was charmed immediately by the lovely open lobby with adjacent lounging area. This hotel is in a great location with lots of interesting shopping & dining options all within walking distance. Hope to get back for a longer stay! The only minor disappointment... More

Had a great stay at Varscona. No "in-hotel" restaurant, but the complimentary breakfast buffet is great. O'Byrnes Irish Pub is an absolute must! They are the greatest asset to this hotel. Complimentary wine and cheese also an attraction.

Varscona is a very pleasant hotel right in the middle of Whyte Avenue, surrounded by great restaurants, cafes and bars. It is within walking distance of the University of Alberta, plus you can walk safely around the area even late at night.

Room was very pleasant. Loved the huge walk in shower. Located in the heart of old Strathcona which was the reason for staying here. Staff was helpful. Breakfast was great. Amperand27 restaurant connected to hotel had unique menu with fresh, healthy options.

The location of the vote is great but the rooms were not very nice for how much we paid. Also no parking for when a friend stopped by to visit. We went for a girls weekend and did not find it met our needs (small bathroom, no mirrors outside bathroom).

Hidden amongst boutiques & bistros, busy sidewalks & patio diners are doors that open to the elegant foyer of The Varscona on Whyte. I booked online, sight unseen, but only cared to be close to the U of A hospital for our loved one. What a relief to walk through the doors & see such elegance. We visited some Whyte... More

I should reserve my review until I am able to stay in the renovated part of the hotel. It was both business for me, as well as a vacation for my wife. We did enjoy the location and found the staff very friendly.
