I have to start this review by admitting my wife loved the place, and I feel a bit mean by being less than positive about the hotel. The truth is though, despite the superb hospitality and friendliness of the staff, the fact that this place advertises itself as 'a European style boutique hotel' tells you all you need to know....

What a nice surprise whilst keeping it's original exterior it has been beautifully turned into a cozy hotel. Rooms are very small but everything you need is in it. No lift so need to be able to negotiate stairs. We had a room on the 2nd (1st in English terms) floor which was at the front. We could here the... More

Ok, the rooms are modern, clean but small-with the double bed in the corner, against the wall I can see this being an issue for some people but...the hospitality provided by the reception staff (Tracey) was some of the best I have ever come across- welcoming, accommodating and willing to go that extra mile to make sure your stay is...

I am in love with this hotel. It is very nice walking distance from the convention center. I travel a lot for work so coming across such a wonderful hotel was a real treat. The owners are fantastic. Such a nice treat to have the wine happy hour and continental breakfast. Also located right next door to the most delicious... More

We stayed here a few days before our cruise and are certainly glad we did. We were greeted by Norm and Larry (the owner), both of whom were extremely nice and inviting. Our room was not ready - as we had arrived early - so we went out for a bit and came back. The room was very cute and... More

Upon arriving in LA, my friend and I were having the worst possible trip( lost baggage, bad AIRbnb etc.). We found this gem, and said lets give it a try- am I ever glad we did!

From being met out in the parking lot by the Reception staff to being taken care of right from the start this place exceeds most peoples expectations of customer service. The hotel itself is beautifully renovated and well decorated and I was amazed how peaceful ti was. Two thumbs up.

This place was surprisingly nice and unique. You can tell this place has found the lost art of CUSTOMER SERVICE. Being a world traveler for all of my life I've realized most of the US has lost a sense of CUSTOMER SERVICE and this hotel has found it in the narrow downtown streets of Long Beach. Room was a typical... More

I was looking for somewhere to stay for a two night business trip. After finding high rates for cookie-cutter hotels, my colleague and I found the Varden. It felt like a boutique hotel in a European city. The happy hour wine and cheese was comfortable, the location is convenient, and the staff at the small front desk were totally accommodating...
