Varscona Hotel on Whyte
Ranked #4 of 91 Hotels in Edmonton
Certificate of Excellence
GreenLeadersBronze level
Reviewed 23 July 2012

I have had the privilege of staying at the Varscona Hotel on Whyte about 15 times in the past 2 years. Whenever I am in Edmonton overnight, this is my #1 choice for a hotel. First off, the price is right, the rooms are very affordable. The breakfast in the morning is always fresh, hot and healthy. The rooms are nice, spacious and always clean. The staff are easy going (not too uptight) and very easy to talk to. Not to mention, they have valet parking! And, when you need your car back, it's always brought back right on time to leave! I 100% recommend this hotel to ANYONE who is in the Whyte Ave./Old Strathcona area of Edmonton.

I was visiting family and have stayed in the sister hotel. I like the Varscona much better. Mostly due to the parkade attached to the hotel. The room was very clean the continental breakfast and wine reception are an excellent added touch.

Room Tip: Because it is on Whyte avenue, it can get a little noisy outside. So maybe not recommended for ligh...

I like the Varscona. Yes, it is getting a bit dated, but still has an elegant, boutique hotel quality about it. Very clean with top notch bath products. The wine and cheese is lovely, the breakfast is ample, the valet parking is quick and efficient, the price is good, and you can't beat the location. I'd bring earrplugs just in case... depending on the location of your room and the night you are staying... it is Whyte Avenue, after all.

Stayed here for a conference at the University of Alberta.
Rooms are standard, well furnished and clean.
The staff was welcoming and helpful.
Good location on Whyte avenue, walking distance to University of Alberta (20 minutes) in nice weather, but the last day when I had my luggage, the desk offered complementary shuttle, which was fast and pleasant. I expect in the winter it would be welcome too.
There is a Second Cup coffee shop in the lobby (closes around 10) and the complementary continental breakfast in the 2nd floor dining room had excellent coffee, a good choice of breads, bagels etc, fruit, yogurt etc. HOwever, if you arrive late, there is no room service, but there are restaurants nearby.
I would stay again

The staff and hotel is very nice but the Metterra and the Matrix just seem to be a bit nicer for the same price. When staying in edmonton this is my #3 hotel to call for availability.

Stayed here for a few nights and it was a great location for walking to restaurants, the river, and the university. Lively area along Whyte Avenue with lots of interesting shops and choices for food.
Very good service in the hotel and excellent lounge area to make tea, coffee and grab a piece of fruit. Good continenetal breakfast included in rate.
Hotel elevators and hallways need some refurbishing.

The hotel is old...but has had serious renovation. The rooms are small but well appointed, soap and bath products top notch. The location would be ideal if you are in Edmonton for a festival or concert.
