Pluses: The location was excellent - very close to the main area (Piazza Bra), but on a quiet side street. An easy, short walk from the bus stop and easy to find. We called from the train station and were met promptly at the door . Our room (double superior) was actually a small studio, with a seating area and a kitchen area (though one of the many rules posted in the room is no eating meals in the room, so ...). It was nice to have the extra room after several nights with more typically sized rooms. Very clean.
Breakfast was the usual continental style, but it was fun to sit at the large table and chat with other guests, mainly Europeans.
We especially enjoyed having The Adriatico almost directly across the street, , an outdoor cafe with some of the best food and service we found in Verona - great for those late nights when we were too tired for yet another walk.
Minuses: Too many rules - 13 of them, which I found a bit off-putting. Sheets & towels only changed every three days. We were only there for 2 nights, but it might have been a problem if we'd stayed longer, especially because this is one of those bathrooms where the floor gets all wet after you shower.
We asked for a large bed but got two twin beds, not made up together as usual.
Breakfast only til 9:30, which worked okay for us, but most other places offer it til 10 am. Also, check-out is at 9:30 am, which seems unreasonable, though we had an early train to catch anyway. The lighting was rather poor throughout - not easy to put on make-up, impossible to read before bed.
