I've been staying at the Varscona for several years. When I check in, the staff often greet me by name. They remember which side of the hotel I prefer (and even which floors). The upgrades they've been doing in the recent past have turned the hotel from a good place to stay to an excellent one. Fantastic staff, great food... More

A bit noisy from the room next door - they must have been having a party. Nothing the hotel could have done about my lack of sleep! Other than that it was fine - I really liked the location right on Whyte Ave - easy access to the University where we attended a sports event.

i was a participant in a 50 odd member nature workshop over the course of a weekend. The facilities provided every thing i needed from parking convenience, ease of access, security, meals, entertainment etc. as a bonus there are plenty of things to do outside the facility which i only had time for a glancing over view in passing. the...

Great location, friendly staff. We love to hang out, eat shop and have drinks on Whyte. Breakfast was great value for the price of the room. Missed the wine tasting but we always enjoy it. Look forward to our next trip to Edmonton

Stayed here while wife was in hospital. There was a pub restaurant in the building very good food and reasonably priced. Clean, quiet, free parking and free breakfast and easy access from and to the hospital. Glad to have stumbled on this hotel on the internet.

Friendly staff, great location, reasonable price. We booked through the email newsletter that we received from the Varscona - received a better deal than if we had called and booked. Our preferred place to stay, if the prices are competitive.

If you're used to the Matrix, this hotel is owned by the same group. Its standards, not surprisingly, are similar - even if their breakfast spread isn't quite as nice. The location is fantastic, however, so I'd say it's a fair trade-off.

Noisy. You will get no sleep if you stay on a weekend. Room service forgot my order for two hours. They did eventually call to apologize and I did not have to pay for my meal. Security was called for noise complaints but it never took care of the issues.

We apologize for your unpleasant experience during your stay with us. Whyte Avenue is a vibrant neighbourhood and often the reason many people choose to stay with us.

For my wife and I this was the perfect local to get away for a night and enjoy a little whyte ave night life. The hotel was welcoming and the amenities were substantial. The breakfast buffet was a little weak though.
