We chose this hotel based on other Trip Adviser reviews and its proximity to the Verona Porto Nuovo station. It is a very reasonably priced, 4 star hotel on the Via Porto Nuovo about 10 mins walk from the station. If you are new to Verona, it is a bit tricky to locate the road, as the exit from the station leads onto a bus terminus, but turn left out of the Station and follow the signs to the Tourist Information Office. We never found the Tourist Information Office, but easily located this hotel.
We asked for a back room (again as a recommendation from another Reviewer), and that was fabulous - looking out onto a nice green, quiet, residential area.
Staff were super attentive and nothing was too much of a trouble.
Wi fi was also good - but strangely - they don't provide any log on information to give the guests the access. You need to ask..and then they freely provide it..but it would be nice to have this provided so you did not need to.
The room was spacious, clean and comfortable and actually provided block SOAP..gorgeous L'Occitane Lemon Verbena soap no less - so I was very impressed. The other toiletries were also fabulous.
Again, this hotel room suffered from over heating, but the windows opened to provide welcome relief.
From here, it is just a short stroll into the centre of town and all Verona has to offer.
I would certainly recommend the Grand Hotel and would choose it again on another visit to Verona.
