This boutique hotel was a perfect alternative to the traditional box hotel. We flew to Long Beach for a weekend and selected this hotel because the traditional hotel where the larger event party was staying was fully booked. But we made a much better decision staying here. Small but very cozy, comfortable rooms appointed with sleek modernist decor was a... More

Let's get this out of the way right up front: the rooms are small. Like, step outside to change your mind small. Every review I read had this as a negative - but honestly the hotel was so charming and pleasant that I truly didn't care. I was there for a business trip, not a honeymoon - 95% of my... More

LOVED this cute little boutique hotel. European style rooms, which means small, but very functional rooms. The staff where very friendly and accomodating. We checked in during their complimentary wine time and were greated with glasses of wine and light snacks. We also met the owner in the morning during the complimentary light breakfast. He was very friendly and welcoming.... More

We were first impressed with how welcoming the staff was. The woman at the front desk indeed made us feel welcome, and took the time to explain what amenities the hotel had to offer, and gave us excellent suggestions for restaurants. We arrived just in time for the 5pm wine and snacks. The wine was great, and we enjoyed visiting... More

Loved it. Very small but well equipped and furnished. Staff wonderful. Given the very small spaces one couldn't help but socialise with fellow guests which was nice. Handy for free bus. Didn't actually catch the train which went past the door. Good parking. Rooms have no outlook, but that means they are reasonably quiet for such a busy street. Long... More

Stayed here for a soccer tournament at the beach. Minutes from the beach, walking distance to restaurants and bars. Customer service was the best I've ever experienced. Staff was very friendly and greeted me as soon as I walked in, assisted me to my room. Accommodated all of my additional requests within minutes. The complimentary wine tasting was great! Trendy...

Stayed here with my husband for 2 nights when we were in town for a wedding. Great location near downtown within walking distance to just about everything. Its a renovated hotel and the rooms/bathrooms are small but very well appointed. The owners and staff that we interacted with were wonderful. A+ hospitality at the Varden!

Very nicely remodeled hotel near the Carnival cruise port. We arrived the night before our cruise around midnight. The staff was very friendly and escorted us to our room and showed us how to operate everything. The rooms are small but that's what you're getting in a European boutique hotel. The continental breakfast was above average. Very fresh pastries and... More

Stayed here for our first two nights in California. Lovely welcome. Great, clean room. The wine hour and small breakfast are perfect, parking is cheap. Just great. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Hotel is in a good location for long beach but also freeways to get to other areas of LA. Love the sign now it lights up... More

I arrived at the hotel around 20 minutes before check-in opened. Immediately I was greeted by the hotel receptionist who said he would have me checked in quickly, boy was he quick! He was very helpful, friendly and immediately put me at ease since I really had no idea about this hotel. It had been a last minute booking made... More
