Had a great time at The Varscona Hotel. Great breakfast and good workout room. My husband and I wish we could have stayed longer. Also would have been nicer if the price ref elected the off season and day of week.

Excellent staff, great breakfast, fresh cookies and free Second Cup Lattes while you wait! Be sure to try the adjoining Irish Pub for open mic night. The hotel is located next to great shopping and great restaurants.

Stayed here for one night. Prime location for a night out on Whyte. Was on the expensive side but that's to be expected off of Whyte. The service was friendly and efficient. The room was clean and comfy. There was FREE valet parking which was awesome as well as complimentary wine tasting (which we didn't get too but that's still... More

I've stayed at the Varscona a number of times and always been impressed with it. In my opinion ion, it tops more expensive hotels in service and value for money. Breakfast and wifi are included in the price.

The facility, the staff, valet (no charge) parking, the rooms, are all excellent. An excellent Boutique Hotel, which I would comfortably compare to the Kimpton chain that is US based. This will be new Edmonton Hotel when I visit on business or pleasure.

I had a nice stay in thiis friendly hotel. Very good and comfortable bed, which is the most important during travelling. The location was excellent and breakfast was fine, although there could be some variation during the week.

Surprisingly clean! Overall satisfied! The only complaint is the lady at breakfast place. She would come up to say "can you fill this for me please, the restaurant is cooking for the hotel". She does not greet anyone, she does not hand me my utensils when I ask her for one, she does not give me service, she does not... More

Great location if you want to walk through Old Strathcona. Better than average breakfast with a good variety. Nice clean comfortable rooms. The wine and cheese was a nice little surprise which we thoroughly enjoyed. There seemed to be attention to detail that isn't often seen at other hotels. We would definitely stay again.

Late check in, no problem. Staff were friendly and knowledgable. Room and all the amenities were great, only issue was the street noise so request a room facing inwards! Complimentary valet parking is fantastic after a long day!
