Reviewed June 30, 2014

This hotel is about a block by foot from Plaza Bra which has the Roman arena. It has underground parking if you make arrangements. Each car has it;s own, locked garage. The breakfast was nice and the staff was helpful and friendly. The room was comfortable and clean. we walked from the hotel to all of the sites on our list: Juliet's house, Sant Anastasia, Duomo, and Castelvecchio. Bonus: gelato shop just a few steps away!

The hotel is very very clean, very very well placed, at the entry of the old city "Villa attica", but it is overpriced! A night at 400 USD for a double room is not reasonable for an inferior 3 star hotel, with no lobby and no recreation at all. Modesty is a virtue. Greed an unforgiveable flaw!

We stayed here for two nights to see the opera. We took our teenage daughters. At first I was concerned as I didn't know it was next to mcdonalds but this wasn't a problem . We had a free upgrade to a superior room which was beautiful. The staff were very helpful and we would stay here again.

Other reviewers have commented on the street noise- our room was right above McDonalds and we didn't hear a thing. Also, complaints about staff attitudes - all queries and issues were dealt with in a friendly, professional and prompt manner. Of course, individual staff can differ but so can guests attitudes!
The hotel was very nicely maintained and rooms and public areas were clean and inviting.
You can't beat the location- a short taxi ride or a brisk walk from the station, supermarket, Arena and lots of restaurants within 5 minutes.
A wide range of food available at breakfast. Staff kept food well stocked.
We had a few personal observations about breakfast which we have communicated directly.
We are older but independent travellers and this hotel ticks all the boxes.stay here when you visit this lovely city.

this otel is very close to arena just 5 minutes walk. and from this point you can start visiting the city. the staff is perfect. the rooms are ok. only thing you must be carefull about the locatıon of the room. when you will make the reservation you better ask for a room with back side view. because the hotel is on a road with heavy traffic and it is very noisy even at night. they have a car parking close to the hotel. daily cost is 18 euro.

Stayed for 3 nights in May. Small room but tasteful, exceptionally clean - each day - and spotless en suite. 2nd Floor above MacDonalds didn't worry us - early in the season - but could be a noise problem in evening in high season. Close and convenient for all sights - would definitely stay again.

A friend and I stayed at this lovely hotel in May 14. The location was fabulous, hotel modern and spotlessly clean with very friendly happy staff!

Transfer by shuttle bus from Verona airport to Porta Nuova train station (€6 pp each way - ticket machine at airport, pay on bus on return) followed by a five minute walk down one main street.

The hotel is right on the edge of the pedestrian zone of Verona which is ideal for sight seeing all over Verona.

We were placed in the apartments across the road which made it feel like we were really experiencing Italy with the knowledge that the safety net of a hotel was at hand (less than 100 yards away).

The breakfast was lovely - plenty of choice from savoury bacon, sausage, ham, cheeses to fruit,croissants and even cake!

Reception staff wonderfully helpful and polite and very good with their English. They recommended a couple of excellent typically Italian restaurants too!

We had a slight issue one morning with the toilet water pressure dropping so it didn't flush, reported it by the room phone, a member of staff arrived within 15 minutes to assess and it was fixed by the time we returned.

We took the train to Lake Garda - Desanzano and another day trip to Milan by train.

Desanzano cost around €25 for the both of us return and is 20 minutes away. Wander down the road and take a boat to any of the docks on the lower part of the lake.

We arrived at the station around 10am to go to Milan only to discover the next train was not until 12pm, I would recommend getting there earlier if you wish to make more of your time in Milan. These tickets cost €68 for us both returning at 6.30pm.

If you wish to climb the bell tower in Verona, bear in mind it was only open at 5.45pm - not sure if this is a seasonal thing as we went in May which is a little pre-season.
