We found this hotel somewhat accidentally online, but we are very glad to have stayed there. The staff was incredibly welcoming from the first moments, and they were all helpful in directing us to sites around town (it was our first visit to Long Beach). Our room was cozy, but well-appointed with all we needed. Easy walk to Pine Avenue restaurants and bars, to the convention center, and to the beach and harbor. We'd absolutely stay here again!

Room Tip: 3rd floor in the back was quiet

I agree with all the positive reviews of the Varden from the excellent front staff to the extreme cleanliness, thoughtful design and pleasant vibe.

Because the Varden is so tiny i think it should be judged with it's supporting neighbourhood: best doughnuts in the world are next to the parking lot, friendly coffee shop across the lane, laundromat and excellent grocery store are across the street, transit station and bike share are less than a block away. nearby restaurants include vegan, juice bars, california cuisine, and many others.
the whole area is clean and litter free.
streets aren't too busy and people are courteous. The Varden is on the margin between busier downtown and sleepy residential neighbourhood. I love Long Beach but this little area is extra special. Long Beach is so not Los Angeles.

I stayed there for 4 nights last May and will definitely be back. The Varden IS the jewel in the crown of Long Beach.

I'm so glad we booked the Varden out of all we had to choose from... the service is absolutely spot on. The Rooms were quaint but all that we needed. The Location is perfect. We arrived very early and they were so understanding of how exhausted we were, (36hrs travelled) and got our room ready for us asap. The guys at reception were amazing.... Do not miss a chance to stay here..... it is so worth it.

My husband and I stayed here for for our anniversary in July and we liked it. It is a lovely remodeled historic hotel. The rooms are on the smaller size but the space is utilized well and remember, it is a historic building. The entire hotel is SPOTLESS! I felt badly wearing my shoes indoors. We found that everyone who works there went out of their way to be of assistance if you needed them. We liked how it was within walking distance of Pine Avenue (shops and restaurants), the metro link, the beach, grocery and wine shop. There is a wine tasting every night, but sadly we missed this. For what we paid for our stay and what we got out of it we found it to be exceptional value and we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: I did not see any elevators in this hotel
