We wanted a hotel close to the centre of Verona, and came upon the Hotel Torcolo, which had generally good reviews and was relatively inexpensive. This turned out to be the perfect choice for us, about 50 metres from Piazza Bra and the arena. Before we even arrived, the Hotel turned up trumps, as the booking site we used showed no double rooms available, so we booked a treble room, and asked for a double bed. An immediate email response asked if we wanted a double room, and assured us that although we would arrive late there would be someone there to greet us. This turned out to be very true, and for the whole of our four day stay they could not do enough for us, telling us about a free concert on the Sunday as we e preparing to go out for the day. This was an added bonus to our stay, and added to our enjoyment.
Everyone on the staff was very friendly and the receptionist even came out to the taxi to say goodbye when we left.
One piece of advice for visitors during the Verona festival is to ask for an upper room or one at the back, as they serve meals outside in the courtyard after the opera performances, until around 3am. Having said this, we had a front room on the first floor, and the "white noise" of the air conditioning was enough to drown the noise of the diners. In response to one review regarding a lack of air conditioning, we were there during record high temperatures in Verona, and the room temperature was kept very cool and comfortable.
Would we return? If we go back to Verona, definitely!
