The location was splendid, amidst many types of shop, eateries and other neighborhood stores. It is near the University of Alberta, thus the location has a young, active vibe. The hotel itself has considerable "old charm," it was well constructed and it's obvious it has been well maintained through the decades. The breakfast is absolutely superb, tasty and varied.
I honestly cannot think of any aspect that could have been better.
Great location with lots to do and access to shops, restaurants, and entertainment. The staff are very friendly and accommodating.
Complimentary wine and cheese each evening between 5.30 and 6.30pm
Surprised upon check out to learn booking.com fluctuated/inflated the price daily (higher rate) per night of our stay even though we'd originally booked for "$X" amount for our entire stay.
The staff is friendly, there are many restaurants, bars and boutique stores, all within walking distance , the rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast and wine tasting in the evening is a nice bonus. Parking is available in the attached parkade.
Great Wine Tasting and Buffet Breakfast. Also very accommodating of our two small children. They even gifted my 5 year old a Barbie doll! Plus the valet parking is the same rate as self park so very reasonable. Everything is walkable - we were only a 20 minute walk to the Stollery hospital.
For some reason we were checked out 3 hours before we actually did, which was a little weird but they apologized. No extra charges.
Varscona is a charming lifestyle hotel providing a warm and comfortable hospitality experience to those looking for a home away from home when they travel. Situated in the heart of historic Old Strathcona, and nestled amongst numerous restaurants, boutiques and theatres blending bohemian panache with contemporary chic. This central location provides easy access to the University of Alberta, downtown and south Edmonton business and government districts. The Edmonton river valley is a few blocks away and offers miles of cycling and walking paths, parks and off leash areas.
