Lovely little place right in the heart of things on white ave. excellent hot breakfast included as well as a nightly wine and cheese. Attached restaurant called Ampersand & 27 is excellent....love the lamb and the best martinis anywhere! Comfortable beds and a well cared for property. Love it!

We really enjoyed the valet parking upon arrival. Love the wine and cheese tasting and the buffet breakfast in the morning. Service at both were great. Enjoyed dinner at Ampersted 27. Great location for everything. Our room was a bit dirty. Would stay here again.

Well located hotel; easy walking distance to a selection of restaurants and UAlberta. Rooms were very comfortable. Despite being on a busy street, noise was not an issue. Lighting in the rooms was a bit dim for working, but otherwise not a problem.

We had a lovely one night get away at the Varscona, loved the "diva" valet parking, free wine tasting and breakfast. The room was clean and lovely. The location was perfect, lots of great places to eat nearby. Loved it.

The staff here are very accommodating, the individual who checked me in got me a room ahead of check in time. The Irish pub attatched to the hotel had pretty good food. On Sunday night they do an open mike there. Apparently it's a tradition for years now. The breakfast buffet was adequate although the fruit one morning was good...

A very nice, and very warm environment. The staff were all super friendly, and always there to help when needed. Pet friendly is big with us, which is why we initially chose this hotel. Just wish that the fee for pets was a little more friendly. IMO $40 a night for 2 very small dogs was a bit hefty.

Great location, with lots of perks to the hotel; like a wonderful breakfast buffet & easy access to restaurants and coffee shops. Lovely walk in shower, just took forever for hot water to arrive. Comfortable bed and pillows!

This hotel has it all for very reasonable rates. The location is outstanding, situated on Whyte Ave. and close to river trials and of course to the city center. Cap this off with wonderful staff that make your stay feel special every time.

I recently had the opportunity to spend a night at the Varscona and was blown away by the level of service I received from the moment I walked onto the property.
