We stayed at the Porta Palio for 3 nights on a short vacation. Overall, we were pleased with the hotel; it’s clean, comfortable and not too far from Verona city centre (15-20 minute walk). The rooms are nice, and come with a fridge (complimentary bottled water), tv and toiletries. Breakfast wasn’t included in our room rate, but there’s complimentary tea/coffee offered in the reception downstairs which is a nice touch! They also have a computer in the reception area for guests to use (free of charge) if you don’t have a wifi device. The staff are pleasant, conversing in English and Italian, ad provided us with free maps of the city centre.
In terms of getting there – we used public transport the whole time and it was fine. If arriving from the train station (Porta Nuova), turn right out of the station doors, cross over the road (across a small river/stream) onto Viale Luciano dal cero. It’s a relatively pleasant 15 minute walk then straight up to the hotel (which will be on your left). From the train station you can also do day trips (we went to Lake Garda, which is stunning – just get one of the ‘blue busses’ from the train station (costs about 10 euros each).
For the city centre from the hotel, you can approach it in 2 ways. Either turn left out of the hotel, walk up Viale Galliano colonnello and turn right at corso Milano (you can then walk directly in along the river, which has stunning views). Alternatively, turn right out of the hotel and turn left onto stradone porta palio (walking straight up and to the right will take you to Piazza bra, which is the centre of the city). Thus, everything is very close, and there’s no real need to hire a car etc, the walks are beautiful, taking about 20 minutes to reach the city centre, and are the best way to see Verona.
