I had a great stay at the Varscona Hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, parking was available in a close by parking garage, and the rooms were very clean. The location is excellent as well, a short walk from many great restaurants and bars. I also appreciated that a boxed breakfast including a hot breakfast sandwich was included with the stay.

This is my second stay at the Varscona and I will be returning. The proximity to the hospital is ideal, a pleasant 20 minute walk, close to pubs, restaurants and shops. The staff are friendly and helpful I unfortunately haven’t been to the restaurant due to COVID but hopefully next time! The breakfast box provided has been improved and I appreciate the thoughtfulness that went into it.My only negative is the coffee maker but they also provide coffee downstairs so all is good😁

We chose the Varscona because it was close to my family and in such a neat area. But we were so surprised at how clean and fresh the rooms were. There was a nice assortment of coffee and teas, but there was coffee every morning and a boxed breakfast (covid style!!) It was a great stay as staff made it very pleasant. Underground parking was also a bonus.

The Varscona is our usual place to stay when visiting Edmonton. It’s location, ease of parking, and breakfast (even the covid takeaway breakfast was nice) are the reasons we choose it. The only criticism I have of this hotel is the poor water pressure in the shower - and poor is an understatement. There, literally, is no water pressure. This is always very annoying and we always think we should look at other comparable hotels in the area because of this. Yet - we seem to overlook this after a period of time and return.

Varscona Hotel is right on White avenue where there's a lot of life days and night. Cafes with good food, and little bars with craft beers. I love walking around and see all of the people. A good place to stay.
