I am sorry to throw cold water on previous reviews, but the Vera is certainly not an outstanding hotel! It is relatively inexpensive and perhaps that is why the reviewers were so ecstatic. It is marginally adequate. It is difficult to find and out-of-the-way. Unmentioned is that the directions have been outdated for 2 years, since the closing of Centro exit from the Autostrada. From the outside, it has the general appearance of a cheap 1960s hotel. The decorations downstairs pick up the cheap look with a tasteless mix of colors and cheap looking furnishings. As for the rooms, the first we saw had a strong odor of mothballs and grubby carpets. The second room had the same run-down look, carpets and smell. The room we chose had a wood laminate floor. All rooms we saw were larger than the tiny rooms found in some budget hotel chains, but they are NOT spacious. Spartan is a better description: 2 tiny bars of soap, 2 half-size bottles of hotel shampoo, 2 half liter bottles of water in the refrigerator. The views on all sides are best seen through closed dusty drapes. The rooms are basically white and wood-colored. Our radiator was badly rusted. Other reviewers found the breakfast from average to good. Compared to what? The breakfast, compared to those of Northern Italy and Northern Europe is substandard in both quality and selection. Finally, it is best to get to the hotel early as there is grossly inadequate parking at and around the hotel. Many guests were forced to create their own parking lot at a wide point of a nearby street.
Other reviewers called this hotel “Great”, or “The very, very best. Benissimo”! Where are their standards? Such inflated reviews are a disservice TripAdvisor readers!
