Despite being situated on quite a busy road, this is a quiet and cute hotel, perfect for visiting the city - even for just one night. Plenty of room for a couple of cars, so parking is free. Receptionist(s) very friendly, and some English is spoken. The city centre is only a 15/20 minute walk, so the supposed shuttle-bus isn't... More

Dear guests, thanks for your beautiful review! The Shuttle bus is a free service offered to the guests that dine at Trattoria Pizzeria ai Bastioni, that is located at the ground floor of the Hotel. The Shuttle bus service isn't needed, you can easily walk to the Arena and Juliet's balcony, but, if it's raining or you want to go... More

Despite staying in hotel and having bed and breakfast the deal states guests can use the free shuttle bus service to railway station, but the receptionist insisted that the service is only available for guests having dinner. She said this was clear on the hotel's website that only dinner guests can use the shuttle bus, but, I feel this is... More

Dear friend, we offer the FREE SHUTTLE SERVICE to the train station ONLY to the guests that book directly with us (on our website or telephone booking).

This hotel gave us a very comfortable stay. The walk to the city centre was enjoyable and indeed a great time- holding hands while walking along the riverside with someone special.

While a lengthy walk in muggy conditions if you do not catch the (free) hotel shuttle on the hour from Porta Nuova, verona stazione, the Porta Palio - looking like a mini version of Parisian Pompidou - is well positioned just outside the grand old defensive walls. From nearby you can hike the city sights or catch nearby buses straight... More

The hotel is not far from the city center and you can park outside for free. The staff is nice and will help you with advice if you need it. The rooms are a bit old but good enough for a one night stop in Verona. I woul recommend this hotel

There is probably nothing magic about this place, but it is an incredible good value option. Buffet breakfast is included, and you can get anything, from a typical italian breakfast with croissant and espresso, to a more substantial breakfast with ham, cheese and toasted bread Parking spots are available for free, 20 meters from the Hotel.

It is a bit far away from downtown if you are willing to walk, the service is not the best for the price they charge you. The receptionists were not helpful and had always a very bad mood.

We found this through Booking.com who advised that it was close to the centre. However, we found it to be a 25 minute walk into the main centre of Verona which is a long walk in hot conditions.
