Boutique Hotel provided great accommodation and friendly service at a reasonable price. Food was good and location was convenient to the university. The only concern was the frequent request for feedback and the request that this review be at least 200 characters long.

Hotel offered a comfortable room with great service. Close proximity to the U of A campus and along the bus line. Hotel has neat decor and her staff were exceptional. Total package comes at an affordable price. Would recommend this place to anyone searching for a place to stay near U of A.

Nicky and team Varscona were amazing! Booked for family and friends attending a wedding in town and rehearsal dinner in the private room at Ampersand. Service was first class from the initial booking to advice on the rehearsal dinner menu to following up to ensure all our needs were met. Meals and the included breakfast were top notch. The hotel is in such a convenient location and the rooms are clean, sunny and roomy. The entire group (there were 28 of us) had only positive comments.

Found each of the staff members (from the reception desk to the breakfast room and our own room) to be quite helpful, ready to please us and most of all quite professional. I had interactions with some of them that made me quite happy to have picked this hotel suggested by family in Edmonton. It was our first time at this hotel and we strongly believe that if other occasions will take place in Edmonton, for sure we’ll use this Hotel. I am positive not to be the first person giving a good review and I want to express my appreciation on running such a good establishment. Keep up the good work for the benefit of your clientele and your own reputation.

My kids and i had a wonderful short stay at the Varscona. Staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful. The room was extremely clean and well kept. Bath products were very nice. Excellent in-room coffee. Very quiet. And Amersand27 was wonderful for dinner. Breakfast included in rate made for a very reasonable stay for 3 people. I will definitely stay again!

The Varscona has been an excellent hotel for many years, and we've been staying there each year for the 11 nights of the Fringe for years. There are many exellent restaurants within walking distance, and of course the main Fringe location is barely two blocks away. Excellent breakfast, excellent stay.

Wonderful people working here made my stay so much better. I had to move my son up to his new place in Edmonton and the hotel was close by. I hadn't stayed here before but will do so again. The welcome committee at the front counter were of great help, as I came early for a meeting and they got me in so I could park in the parkade. Later when I fully checked in they were very friendly and gave me all the scoop on the areas Fringe Festival and other events going on. I was always greeted whenever I came in and enquired of how the move in was going for my son. It's nice to be recognized and that they kept track of me. They knew I didn't know the area and was a bit nervous of heading out on my own. Every morning I was treated to smiles and a wonderful breakfast selection of fresh hot eggs, bacon, sausages, porridge as well as a variety of fresh fruit and muffins. Cold cereals and toast too. Fresh hot coffee and juice. I was set for the day.

Everything was generally very fine. Just be aware that the wifi signal would frequently die - often for extended periods. It's a terrific location. Very friendly staff. Free breakfast is good - but you'll be expected to tip the people who are keeping an eye on things (so it's not really free). If you're staying in a room on the west side of the building, be aware that the building next door has a very noisy giant fan in its roof that can be annoying - but ear plugs will solve that problem.

We stayed here for the week so that we could enjoy the Fringe. Great that breakfast was included. Nice room with coffee machine. Great location. Unfortunate that housekeeping service is not available.

Stayed here for a few days to attend the fabulous Edmonton Fringe Festival. Great location, super convenient, nice hotel. They insist on a 200 word review so I guess I have to vamp a little until I hit the minimum. Bingo!
