Very centrally located..somewhat expensive, but the convenience is worth it. Small rooms, but clean and quiet! Great breakfast room and selection. The front desk could be a little more accommodating...not totally english fluent.
Verona is a gem and makes up for any slight hotel inconveniences.

The hotel is in an excellent location for everything. Right in the middle of the historical centre, it is a really good base for exploring Verona. The hotel is very clean, you get nice extras such as free umbrellas (a must since it rained pretty much every day when we were there), free tea and cakes in the afternoon, free wifi (not always the case in some hotels), etc.

The only thing that lets it down is the fact that, though the breakfast has a good selection, more of an effort could be made on some items. For example, why have frankfurters out of a packet when they could display nice local sausages which are a bit more appealing.

Most of the staff is very friendly. I would like to single out Martina, the breakfast waitress who makes a huge effort to say hello to everyone (even if there are two of you she will talk to everyone) and has a hugely endearing smile. It is more than can be said for Daniele, the breakfast manager (or at least he behaves like one) who always looked miserable, doesn't say hello (or rather says it selectively) and barely acknowledges your presence.

We would certainly go back to that hotel if we ever came back (and in fact we most certainly will have to because we were supposed to attend Aida at the arena but that was cancelled because of rain (or rather it was cancelled after the orchestra played for only 2 minutes, meaning that they wouldn't give us a refund and would only allow everyone to rebook for free on another performance).

Lovely hotel right in the heart of Verona. Just a short stroll from the amphitheatre. Lots of shops and restaurants close by. The hotel itself was very clean. Breakfast was buffet style, but a great choice was offered. The staff were all excellent.

My wife and I stayed here , as we were going to the Arena , the location is superb , walking distance from all the sites , about 200m from the 2 main Piazzas . The room was large and airy , with an excellent bathroom with walk in shower . The A/C worked very well , which was a bonus as the outside temperature was around 30oC . It was very quiet , and the staff were excellent , very pleasant , helpful and polite . Breakfast was also excellent , the hotel arranged a transfer for us , as our flight didn't arrive until 9:30pm , the transfer was on time , with a driver who was polite , very helpful and spoke excellent english .
All in all a great place to stay

The position is perfect - only a short ten minutes walk to the arena and all the shops are within the same distance. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful, the room was better than average with an unusually large bathroom with the best shower - hot and full! Breakfast is excellent and late for opera lovers. There is also a complimentary bar in the afternoon which is just the thing after walking the city. The perfect hotel in the perfect location.

We went to Verona for the opera, discovered a wonderful hotel and a great place to visit. This hotel was well chosen in terms of location, convenience to the Arena, restaurants, shopping and standards. Our spacious room came with a lovely terrace and beds were very comfortable and good bedlinen. Staff were excellent, welcoming and courteous. Breakfast was a buffet included for free with lots of choice for all tastes including scope to have Buck's Fizz for breakfast and complimentary prosecco in the afternoon. The hotel also has a pavement terrace ideal for an aperitif or coffee and a great place to simply watch the world go by en route to the Arena. We stayed two nights and would return.

I together with my husband and 11 year old daughter recently stayed for two nights at the Accademia Hotel. We booked a suite which had two large rooms, very well equipped - we were not disappointed. The location of this hotel is first class, very central and close to everything in Verona (not that Verona is a particularly big city). All the staff were very helpful and attentive before our stay and during our stay. The breakfast was excellent with a great choice of foods.
