This is a very nice and fresh little hotel with modern design and very friendly staff. The rooms are quite small but it's not a big problem. I also enjoyed the complimentary breakfast (especially the nice choice of yoghurts) and the very nice coffee machine that makes excellent coffee. Location is also quite central, just a short walk away from...

The owners and staff at the Varden were such a delight! So friendly and helpful (you do not always come across that in the LA area). The rooms were small, as advertised which was completely fine as we did not spend much time in the room anyway. The bed was heavenly soft and comfortable - we both woke totally refreshed...

The check in person was wonderful. I have forgotten her name now, but she was very informative and caring. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, and I got a good night's sleep. Also enjoyed the Keurig coffee maker and wonderful selection of coffees in the reception area in the morning. I don't believe I will stay here again,...

As boutique hotels go we really enjoyed our stay here. You just need to know the rooms are small but clean and beds are comfortable. Nice little happy hour area and continental breakfast. Convenient parking

I stayed overnight at the Varden March 7th. Small and sincere hotel in downtown Long Beach. Well appointed room, clean and efficient. Staff really made the difference by speaking to you like you are a guest and a customer. Never unctuous. Before leaving I asked the front desk guy about the renovation of the shower, and he had a high...

The rooms at the Varden are small. But if you need a nice, clean & quite place to sleep - it is perfect! This former fleabag hotel has been expertly remodeled into a European style boutique hotel. 1/2 the price of the nearby big chain hotels, personalized service and close to downtown Long Beach. Everything is within walking distance. Free...

The Varden Hotel sits at the edge of downtown Long Beach. This place was a real find. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. They brought our luggage to our room ( no elevator), gave us great suggestions about where to eat and how to get around. Really good restaurants were only two blocks away. The Hotel is also very...

The Verden was a great find. I was attending a very large conference and the hotels adjacent to the Convention Center were over $300/night. The Vader provided everything that I needed: free and GOOD WiFi, A clean and comfortable room, and a wonderful staff---all at a half of what other venues were charging. The owners did an awesome job combining...
