This hotel is a fantastic experience if youre younger and prefer style to absolute convenience. The staff were all absolutely amazing, accommodating, and friendly! Orlando went above and beyond to help make our stay even better, Thanks man! The bed was also extremely comfortable! I, honestly, had not expected this! Free wine from 5-7pm was a pretty nice, unexpected, touch... More

This refurbished, downtown hotel is a "gem in the city." Location is perfect for walking in the city or to the pier or ride public transportation. Great parking for a modest fee right next door. Yes, the rooms are cozy; BUT, well designed for efficiency and comfort. with a "Bath in every room" as the historic sign on the building... More

Yes, the room was small, but it was so well designed that it wasn't a problem, at least for one person. Two people might feel a little cramped. The complimentary breakfast and wine tasting in the evening were nicely done and welcome.

I initially found the Varden because of a labor dispute at a nearby conference hotel, but I'm so glad I did find it. The rooms were redone beautifully and were efficiently arranged, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The staff members were all very helpful, and the location puts it right next to a really wide range of great restaurants.... More

This hotel has a great location, and is cute, but rooms are quite small. The bathroom is "European" style with a drain in the middle and shower on one side. A barn style mirror slides and acts as a door. When the door is closed and you are inside the bathroom its hard to get out, as there is no... More

Our second visit to the Varden Hotel left us even more satisfied than our first visit a few years earlier. Exceptional service, beginning even before our 2-day stay. Yo wit: e-mails answered within 12 hours, usually within a couple of hours. As before UPS deliveries for us were placed in "our room" before our arrival at the property. Unlimited wines... More

What a cute little hotel in the middle of Long Beach! Definitely met the expectation of a 'boutique hotel!' The room was small, but the space was well utilized and met all our needs. The hotel is located within walking distance of many pubs and restaurants and the harbor is just down the street. But it is the staff that... More

Booked this hotel after reading other great reviews. Overall, it was a nice hotel but definitely had a few flaws. The room was quite large but the bed was strangely pushed into the corner of the room. The bathroom was tiny but functional for a one night stay. One complaint was the incredibly small sink that was located at the... More

Convenient location - check. Clean - check. Free wifi - check. Good service - the staff couldn't be friendlier! Comfy bed - check. Good value - check. Yes, the rooms are a little on the small side, but the layout is very organized and smart. Besides, with so much to see/do in So Cal, why would you spend much time... More

This is the hotel for you if you want something different from the predictable accommodations and impersonal service of chain hotels! The Varden rooms are attractively sleek and make clever use of the small vintage size. Be prepared for a small room and you'll enjoy it. I brought along a standup make-up mirror and used it on the well lit... More
