Great position for a romantic week end in Verona. If you search for comfort and relax in this beautiful city you are in the right place! Modern and comfortable rooms in Piazza Brà, just in front of the famous Arena. Breakfast at "Mamma mia", 2 minutes walking, without waste of food as they do not have the classic buffet. You...

Apartment was excellent both in terms of location and comfort. Keys are collected on arrival in the restaurant Mama Mia right in the main square @ Piazza Bra where there is a little reception corner inside the restaurant. We arrived earlier than check in time of 3pm but decided to have some lunch and stroll around until our room was...

We spent one night there, and do not regret at all. The Ippopotamo business seems to be more in the restaurants, but they have a few apartement type of rooms that serve as a fully functional hotel. The room we had was a well-furnished oversized one, included a kitchenette with a free Nespresso machine and an enormous bathroom with a...

We had one night in Verona and my buddy and travelling companion chose the Locanda Ippopotamo. I was skeptical at first (hippopotamus hotel just didn't sound like an outstanding establishment) and my first impression wasn't great when it took us quite a while just to find the place. We didn't realize that the "hotel" is actually just a block of...

This hotel is on Piazza Bra - we were going to the opera and it is a 3 minute walk. The entrance is through the restaurant. The first night we had an attic room, full of character tapestries and beams, two bathrooms and a small bedroom up a flight of stairs leading off the main bedroom. We had to move...

OK, firstly this is not a hotel in the classic sense. It is a business that owns a restaurant and a fast food eatery on Piazza Bra, and has expanded into acommadation. There is no reception, no lounge or bar or usual room service. Not a problem for me. When you arrive, you make yourself known at the fast-food joint...

My husband booked this for our last night in Italy, as our usual hotel was full. When we booked in at the restaurant in piazza bra it was a bit chaotic. On return we were taken to the room, very steep stone stairs and no lift with our luggage. The room had fantastic views of the arena and the piazza...
