As others have said, this is a comfortable hotel in a great location, just off the main shopping street Via Mazzini and midway between Piazza Bra and Piazza Erbe. Our room was spacious, with a king-size bed, loveseat, chair, coffee table, and desk. The bathroom was very modern and clean. The breakfast room was large, and the buffet was good. In the lobby there are several nice, comfortable seating areas. Others have said that complimentary drinks and snacks are served in the afternoon, but unfortunately no one at the hotel told us about this and I was not aware of it until I read about it on TripAdvisor later. While this hotel is great if you are just going to be walking around Verona, it may not be the best choice if you are going to be using Verona as a base for driving day trips to other cities, as we did. Driving to and from the hotel and the highway is tricky on very narrow, one-way streets in the old city, and the car GPS cannot tell you which streets may be closed off or have driving restrictions. We ended up with an expensive ticket for inadvertently driving on a restricted street. Also, each time you arrive or depart with your car, someone from the hotel has to walk with you to the garage a block and a half away to open the garage. The charge for using the parking garage is something like 23 Euro per night. In hindsight, we would have been better off staying in a hotel with a more direct route to the highway. The old part of the city is small enough that you can get around easily enough from any location.
