“Central location, beautiful rooms and an excellent breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

We stayed in a beautiful and spacious two bedroom/two bathroom appartment (two single beds in the first room (possibilty of a third single bed) and a king size bed in the second room upstairs). A very good option for a family with children (not babies though, as two bedrooms are separated by stairs). Appartments belong to the restaurant "Ippopotamo", so look for the sign of the restaurant and not for the "Locanda Ippopotamo". Free wireless access is provided, as well as various international TV channels. Fruits in the room and some beverages and cookies free of charge. The breakfast was very generous and delicious.

Room Tip: Two bedroom appartment is very spacious but it is a duplex (two bedrooms are separated by stairs - t...

We stayed at the Ippopotamo and arrived around 11pm to check in. We were welcomed we a big smile by Nadia the manager of the hotel. Excellent rooms and beautiful location. I didn't really want to leave a review as I believe this hotel should be twice the cost for the service and location. I will be certainly staying here again every time we visit Verona. Highly recommended, and excellent staff.

Room Tip: - Go for the all inclusive package - Make time for breakfast

Second time visiting Verona and first stay in hotel Ippopotamo . The Arena, Pizza Bra and the good food are as good as before. But staying at this truly city center located hotel really added colors in visiting Verona. We stayed at the attic room with a window on the ceiling which my kids (age 8 and 9) felt they were in green house and can touch the stars during sleeping.
Excellent location, super good breakfast and great service from the hotel or restaurant staff enhanced our positive memory on Verona.
Read the reviews from trip advisors are important because it save us time to find the hotel but look for the restaurant Ippopotamo instead. The jacuzzi in the bathroom is unbeatable after a long day walk around the Arena and city center.

I visited with my family for a few days. We got a fantastic room on two levels which the kids absolutely loved. The view of the arena was impressive. Everything worked well, including the internet and movie channels. Breakfast was very good and plentiful and there was fresh fruit and good coffee in the room! The staff was friendly and helpful. It was a wonderful experience, we will all remember our days in Verona.

My wife and I had two nights in September 2012. The most amazing room we have ever stayed in! The view over the piazza and to the arena is unparalleled. The balcony was a rare find - not many of those in Verona.

Don't be put off by the hotel reception being located in the pizza / gelato restaurant or going through it and out the back to get to your room. Definitely worth the unusual entrance.
This is the first place I have stayed at where the shower light comes on when you turn on the water.

An absolute must-stay for anyone visiting Verona.

Room Tip: Ask for the yellow room on the first floor with the balcony.

These rooms are wonderful!! We chose them because we were going to the Arena for the opera and wanted a room close by. The Ippopotamo is about 150metres from the arena . The room was wonderful, with fresh flowers and fresh fruit, nothing was too much trouble. The minibar, which was inclusive, was filled again every day. The room was cleaned every day with spotless detail. The air conditioning was very good, as we stayed in one of the hottest spells in Verona. The staff were so hard working and so kind. Everything exceeded our hopes. I will post an account of our Opera experiences.

Room Tip: 202 and 201 were the double rooms. Both were gorgeous. 201 had a balcony overlooking the arena, but...
