Byblos Art Hotel Villa Amista
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Our stay at the Byblos Art Hotel was truly excellent. We visited for 4 days, right at the start of the 2013 season, so the hotel, restaurant and buffet breakfast were all quite quiet. The staff were always attentive and helpful; and the restaurant meals were some of the best I have ever had (we met the two chefs and they kept sending out wonderful little treats between the delicious courses). Recommended are the Italian Risottos and fish dishes; and do try the Conti D'Arco rose sparkling wine which is really smooth and delicious.
The free shuttle bus to Verona saves on moderate taxi fares (due to the modest distance from the Hotel to Verona) but, unless you are a keen shopper or desperate to investigate the (somewhat fictitious) Shakespeare related experiences (Juliet's tomb & Juliet's house/balcony), you probably will not need to visit Verona too often. Instead we treated ourselves to a full day of touring around the east and south of Lake Garda (from Bardolino to Sirmilone). The sun shone and we had a wonderful day touring, visiting lakeside towns and trying side street restaurants - away from all the obvious tourist traps.
The Byblos Art Hotel not only has an amazing architecture and lovely gardens, it also has a whole lot of modern art (from paintings to sculptures to art installations and videos) - not all of which was to my taste - and some is not suitable for children due to the nudity.
My only gripe during our visit was that the cable TV provider was having some technical issues, so we couldn't watch any pay movies and the choice of sky programs in English was a bit limited.
Our room (an upgrade!) was spacious, airy and very comfortable. We got really relaxed, very quickly, which is exactly why you would visit a luxury Hotel. The cost of the stay was quite high, not helped by poor pound to euro rates, but comparable with other luxury Hotels and it is arguably one of the best we have ever visited.

Fabulous hotel nothing lacking we spent one night there wish it had been longer. Pure luxury. My husband would say for him it was a bit ott and too far out of Verona, but there was a regular shuttle bus and my teenage daughter loved it. We took our dog with us who was well looked after and we had no problems. The only thing I would say is if you have children of an impressionable age the Art may be a bit risqué.

We spent one night at the hotel during our recent weekend getaway to Verona. It's a simple magical place unlike any other. The manor house is a spectacular piece of Italian architecture, and the interiors are truly unique. Filled with artistic pieces, it's visually very interesting. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant which was delicious. Service was excellent, and the dessert, I had profita rolls which were delicious and served with an extra helping of divine chocolate! I would highly recommend this hotel for a weekend getaway to Verona. They also offer a free hourly shuttle service to down town Verona which is very useful!

We absolutely loved staying at this hotel. We have both stayed in many of the best hotels in the world and we thought the Byblos Art Hotel was one of the best experiences we'd ever had. The place is beautiful and ususual - we spend an afternoon just exploring and experiencing the very cool art. The level of service was impeccable. The staff was kind, incredibly responsive and on top of all of our requests. The dinner we had at the main restaurant was the best we had throughout our entire trip. Actually, all of the food was gorgeous - from the breakfast buffet to the grilled shrimp gazapcho at lunch. Of course, we loved the bar and the knowledgeable bartenders. We can't wait to go back!

I spent one night in June invited by Volvo (for the European presentation of the V40) and I admit this was one of the most spirited hotels I ever stayed in. The most impressive part is the lobby with the big posters of nude ladies, that introduces you to an adequately romantic room, spacious, well lit and equipped with an array of work arts. The external green area is relaxing and the Italian breakfast is impeccable. I didn't use the pool but it's location is ideal, on high ground and pretty hidden. Definitely an advisable stay for romantic couples but even for business purpose in the area of Verona.

The last leg of our ten day Italian adventure - we had already visited Verona, so it wasn't important for us to be near the centre. From the moment we arrived we were treated very well particularly by Christian who made us feel very special throughout. We had a couple of trips in the shuttle into Verona but they were short as we wanted to enjoy the hotel. The art is great, very interesting and thought provoking. My only small point would be the WiFi 55 minutes allowance, it seems very random and the connection was poor. Having said that, we enjoyed the experience so much that it didn't matter. The excellent restaurant was our final, and best, night of the trip - and the tour of the wine cellar made it a very memorable visit. Thanks!!

The hotel has some eccentric features most notably the huge amount of very high quality modern art in all rooms, including Kapoor, Quinn and Hirst. If you like modern art this is the ideal hotel. Regular shuttle buses take you into Verona to the opera or to shop.

The restaurant was excellent.
