Stayed here 2 nights while visiting friends in Trento. Rooms okay, some have nice view of Dolomites. Nice breakfast. Short drive to center of Trento. Staff was very helpful. Free parking at site. Internet service was okay.

I am sorry to throw cold water on previous reviews, but the Vera is certainly not an outstanding hotel! It is relatively inexpensive and perhaps that is why the reviewers were so ecstatic. It is marginally adequate. It is difficult to find and out-of-the-way. Unmentioned is that the directions have been outdated for 2 years, since the closing of Centro... More

Hotel Vela is situated a few km south of Trento, but with a regular bus service into town. It's very much a focus for the local community & as a family run business, the personal touch is very evident. Claudia, in particular, was extremely helpful, but many of the staff spoke good English & were happy to help in any... More

We stayed in Trento for one night then heading towards dolomiti ski resort, this hotel is picked up basically because of the good price for 4 people. We drove there, to our surprise, it was a 3 star hotel with a nice resturant! And the food served there was fantastic! We arrived quite late but the reception man was waiting... More

Very good hotel at Trento. Very friendly and good staff. Nice restaurant with good prices and good food, good option to lunch or dinner. Beautiful sight of the mountains at the windows. The location is not in the center of the city, but it's worthy due to the quality of the hotel.

The hotel is far from principal atractions,you need a car or the bus (20 minutes). The triple room was very confortable. The breakfast was really good,but did not have fresh fruits. The recepcionist was very helpful. Free parking and free internet.

As I had to pass a job interview in Trento I stayed there for 1 night. The room was clean and with all the comforts. Internet was free...good stuff. Maybe there was too smoke polluted air from the balcony of my room as it was just over the main hotel entrance.

I stayed at Hotel Vela because I could not find a hotel in town close to the conference. The value was better than any I have ever had The room was spacious, clean, bright and attractive. There was a TV that had a large screen. The window opened into a balcony and I could look up into the mountains. The... More
