We stayed in Hotel Scalzi at Easter 2013, two years after our first stay. It's a comfortable hotel about 15 minutes walk away from the Arena, and a similar distance from the railway station (you can also go by bus).
On the first occasion, we stayed in a room facing the street. If you're a very light sleeper staying in one of those rooms, you might be awakened by the early morning traffic. However, by big city standards the level of noise and trafic is light, and we weren't disturbed by it.
On each trip, our rooms were comfortable and the buffet breakfast was very good. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant, but there are several reasonably-priced places to eat within 2-10 minutes walking distance.
The above are basic requirements in any good hotel. Our real reason for returning to Hotel Scalzi is the staff. On both visits, we found them all to be very courteous, helpful, friendly and simply nice to meet, from early morning to late at night. This can't happen by accident. We'll stay there again.
One other tip. Apart from Verona's obvious attractions, the nearness of the railway station makes quick trips to places like Vicenza, Venice, Mantova or Lake Garda a very easy option. If you're not in a hurry, slow trains are very cheap (eg we paid seven euro each for a single journey to Vicenza).
