Verona in the opera festival season is pricy and lots of tourists are in town - this makes for high demand, so a hotel about 3 km from the centre - maybe 1.5 km from the stationhas lower prices and better availability than the centre of the city
A taxi from the train station costs about 6 euros - or you can take a bus which runs every 40 mins. The hotel is kind of in the middle of nowhere - it's really just somewhere to sleep rather than a place to go.
Compared to the hotel website, it seems to have had a major refurbishment. While the rooms, corridors and entrance area refurb is complete, the garden is most certainly not ready for guests. The decor is on the modern side - forget about schmaltzy furnishings. Rooms and bathrooms are fine - standard European size. Breakfast is on the ground floor near reception - the choice is adequate although not exceptional - if you want lots of variety, forget about staying here.
Staff are friendly and try to help. In opera season, they run a shuttle service to the arena - costs about 5 euros per person which is easily worth it for the hassle saved.
I'm sure if you book months in advance you can find better in Verona, but for a booking 2 days in advance in peak season, we found this quite suitable.
