Our gang worked hard all day and actually looked forward to being welcomed home and unwinding with the wine tasting. We all so appreciated a chance to unwind and enjoy each other's company in such an inviting space. The first night we sat around in front of the fire. cozy and just what we needed. The breakfast was well stocked,...

Reviewed 10 November 2016

Decent if older hotel, not full service of course but staff all seem happy and are helpful. Includes cooked breakfast - pretty good, way better than most mid-range hotels, but this is not the Ritz. Strathcona has a good few interesting bars and restaurants, and this is a great location for the University. Would definitely stay here again.

Stony Plain, AB
Reviewed 8 November 2016

This is the only quality hotel or motel in this part of Edmonton. Great location for exploring Whyte Avenue where a lot of the action is. My only complaint is that it is a little pricey for similar motels and hotels in the Edmonton area. It is trying to be a boutique hotel but doesn't really make it.

The Varscona is a great place to stay. Included with your room are: acess to the business centre, fitness room, a breakfast buffet with hot and cold foods, and always fresh fruit, and valet parking. The location for the south side is excellent, staff are professional, helpful and friendly and the hotel is clean and modern.

Great overall, just no air conditioning so we had to open a window. Luckily it was in November and so it wasn't summer night air that as cooling the room down. It might be more difficult to cool the room down during the summer. Street can be loud due to its popularity. But still enjoyed my stay.

We stay here most of the times when we visit Edmonton, never had a bad experience. The valet parking is great, walking distance to restaurants and bars. The hotel is clean, the service is good and the breakfast is good.
