Locanda Ippopotamo
Ranked #44 of 425 Verona B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 10, 2013

The rooms here are generously sized, and as reviewers noted have expresso machines and
fold-out sofas that are comfortable. But there is no reception area, no one to call if you have
problems. The hotel is behind a busy cafe, and very centrally located in the old part of the city.
We heard children running and playing both upstairs and in the very close playground, so if
you don't like noise you might choose something else.

Service is excellent, and the breakfast is ample and very good in quality.

Room Tip: Request second floor for more separation from noise.

We made a last minute reservation at this locanda in Verona and were over the moon when we arrived to find a warm and welcoming top class place to stay. We gladly checked in to their classic double room and found a beautifully decorated and large soundproofed room with a lounge, king bed, coffee maker, fruit, mini bar, etc. If the attic room with view of Arena had been available we would have grabbed it for that extra bit of ancient history atmosphere.
Location is perfectly situation on Piazza Bra only metres from the Arena. Perfect for sightseeing and watching the world and people go by with a cocktail or coffee in hand.
Nadia the manager and her team really know how to make you feel welcome and special... it is so nice to have little extras given and with a smile. We only wished our stay was longer...
We would highly recommend this small but quality accommodation in the wonderfully romantic city of Verona.

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.
