Agli Abbaini B&B
Ranked #57 of 425 Verona B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 January 2014

LOCATION
=========
Great location, I'll give them that.
Minutes to the Old Town via foot.

Also:

- 1 km from Borgo Trento hospital
- 10 minutes from the Fair
- 10 minutes from the railway station of Porta Nuova
- 20 minutes from Valerio Catullo
- 30 minutes from Lake Garda

ROOM
=====
Spacious, yet sparsely decorated.
Nice bathroom with blue accents.
Felt like a European "grandma" room.

PROS
=====
*BREAKFAST
Delicious. Above-average continental spread of yogurt, fruits, and freshly baked goods. Sylvia made the best poached eggs. The owners used to be in the restaurant industry for over 20 years so this made sense that they got this right.

*BALCONY VIEW
Definite bonus. Great for sunsets. Wish they had chairs on the balcony.

CONS
======
*TOWELS
Felt like sand-paper or a loofah.

*HEATER
It didn't work on the first night and it was freezing cold. Told the owners the following morning and they said the set temperature was incorrect. How was I supposed to know that without instructions. Got a 10 euros discount for this fiasco.

*TOILET
Sometimes it flushed, sometimes it didn't.

*PILLOWS
OK, I won't lie, I'm high maintenance. The pillows were flat and there were no extras.

*PRICEY
For 120 euros a night, I expected better.

OVERALL
========
The owners were nice. Loved the location.

I liked it, but didn't love it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights here. We had a large comfortable room, well equipped bathroom across the corridor, and bathrobes to use. The bathroom had a balcony with delightful views, and the view across the town from the breakfast room balcony was stunning. Silvia served us lovely breakfasts with a good choice each day. It was a pleasure meeting and talking to her. The location is excellent. We were able to walk into town in about 10 minutes. Silvia's husband recommended Antica Verona for an evening meal and we ate very well there both nights.
The only problem we had was actually finding the place. There seem to be two number 15s on the road and the right one is not obviously a B&B. The B&B is actually on the 4th floor of a building which has a sign for another business on the gate. It is straight opposite a football pitch and just before some traffic lights. If you arrive by car as we did turn right at the lights and immediately left into the only free car park in Verona. We left the car here for 2 days without any problems. We were careful not to leave anything on show.
All in all we were very happy with our stay here and would return.

"+"

this hotel is too close to the historical center of Verona.
there are only 3 rooms for staying. No staff. only neighbors. landlady Silvia is very friendly and careful like mother.
b&b is situated in a home on the 4th floor (like apartment)
there are different maps and business cards of best restaurants of Verona.
there is a lift.
the room is very big.
bed is very comfortable.
Big wardrobe.
good hair dryer.
all shower staff are there (including bathrobes:))
the view from all windows is perfect.

"-"
the price (in september) is too high.
very far from the train station (aprox.10 minuties on foot to bus stop and then 20 minuties by bus (1,5 euro), by taxi aprox. 15 minuties and around 20 euro to train station and 50 euro to airport Verona).
i don't like such breakfast, when you can't choose what you want to eat.

We stayed at the B&B 2 nights with our baby. Silvia is a wonderful host, she is warm and nice and caring! The location is great and the breakfast is perfect. The room the the shower were extremely clean. However, the floor was a bit squeaky, and the towels a bit coarse, and those were found to be important when you are with a baby... Despite this, we came back for one more night at the end of our trip, and we were happy to do so.

Room Tip: Choose the room with the showers inside.

Fantastic location, on a hill overlooking Verona. About a 20 min walk to the arena but lots of restaurants and bars on the way. Some excellent recommendations of places to eat that were spot on. Great food and service. Comments on the traffic noise are accurate but hey it's an Italian city and we didn't have any problems sleeping.

I have come to the conclusion that, where B&Bs are concerned, because of the personal relation that is created with the owner, TA reviewers tend to give a 5/5, provided everything was just about ok. This is then repeated over and over again and one ends up with establishments that at most could be considered as good receiving "certificates of excellence" and so on. The point is that there are some truly outstanding B&Bs out there (see my review of Antica Residenza d'Azeglio in Bologna) and it is difficult to distinguish them out from the more ordinary places.

In this case, the rating on TA did cause us some disappointment: this B&B is overall quite good, but really no better or worse than dozens of other similar places.

The location is very good, but if you are reading this, it is probably because you already made that out by yourself, using the interactive map. We were greeted by the hostess who gave us the local information in a competent and professional way. The room was large, and perfectly clean. The bedding was second rate and the traffic is quite noisy so sleep quality is not the best. There was an aircon unit in the room, but when switched on, it emitted a blue light so bright you could almost read a book by it. The only way to avoid this inconvenience was to switch it off altogether which, in August, implied opening the windows and increasing the noise level. The breakfast was what you expect in a B&B, with fruit, bread and freshly cooked eggs, a very decent cup of coffee, and the awful tang orange juice that seems to be on offer even in the best Italian hotels.

Verona is a truly wonderful city and you must absolutely not miss it when visiting Italy. This B&B is not a bad option, but I would probably shop around to see what hotel deals are available before choosing to return here.

The service has been outstanding, food excellent, the rooms and cleanliness super. The location is good with a good view of the city. Our room had a spectacular view of the Castle San Pietro and surroundings.
grazie Silvia!
