Our family of five traveled to verona to celebrate our daughter's birthday. We stayed at Locanda Ippopotamo in the charming "Quadruple Room with Arena view". The room was even better than we thought it would be! Our room was very spacious with a main bedroom and bathroom and an upstairs loft with seating area, bed, and bathroom. We went thought... More

Arriving at the hotel was originally surprisingly, as we entered through a cafe on the piazza - there is little signage for the hotel at the given address. However, once we were shown to our gorgeous room, all was well. We stayed in the deluxe room on the second floor - the only one with little verandas overlooking Piazza Bra... More

I stayed at the "Locanda Ippopotamo" with my girlfriend from 31.12.13.-02.01.14. The hotel has only few rooms and we were lucky to have the BEST room, maybe in the whole city in Verona: Big, cozy, with a large jacuzzi (for 2 regular persons) in a big bathroom, with a very comfortable bed, a minibar, a fruit basket, a Nespresso machine,...

I love Verona! I visit it every year because I just enjoy its quite and romantic atmosphere. But in order to have the maximum comfort one must choose the right hotel. Ippopotamo's unbeatable location is by itself enough to make this hotel the best and probably the right hotel in Verona. I stayed at the Locanda during Christmas time and... More

What a wonderful suprise. The room with the balcony is unbelievable. In all of our travels in Europe this was our best place to stay. The location, accross from the colosseum is perfect. We would definitely stay again.

When you first arrive, you could be a little worried as there is only a pizza restaurant and no reception. However, after you have been shown how to get to the palatial room and have seen the view, you will wonder if that truck you nearly hit on the way here really did smash into you and this is Heaven!...

Even if there is no reception, just a restaurant, it does not matter. Wonderful and spacious room with seperate sleeping space and bathroom for the children. The "hotel" part has its own entrance but all requests are handeled by the hotel manager (Nadia) or the restaurant. Great location just 1 minute from the Arena and if you get the right... More

Although we arrived in the middle of a thunder storm, after a stressful drive in... Our night's stay in Verona could not have been more perfect. We were greeted by Nadia - Hotel Manager, such a friendly face and lovely lady, our stress was forgotten. Although situated behind a busy cafe, we couldn't have been treated any better. We were...

The rooms here are generously sized, and as reviewers noted have expresso machines and fold-out sofas that are comfortable. But there is no reception area, no one to call if you have problems. The hotel is behind a busy cafe, and very centrally located in the old part of the city. We heard children running and playing both upstairs and... More

We made a last minute reservation at this locanda in Verona and were over the moon when we arrived to find a warm and welcoming top class place to stay. We gladly checked in to their classic double room and found a beautifully decorated and large soundproofed room with a lounge, king bed, coffee maker, fruit, mini bar, etc. If... More
