Stayed for a week in this Hotel as we visited Verona and used as base for visiting surrounding areas. Room was spacious, huge bed ( really usual continental 2 beds together ). TV virtually all Italian channels, some English news channels. Breakfast was decent, selection of cereals, lots of fruit, some breads, scrambled eggs, tea / coffee, orange / grapefruit juices. Found staff to be very nice and most helpful. There is a LIDL around the corner if you need anything.
Rooms have A/C and were clean, nice bathroom ( bath / shower kind of thing, no shower curtain ). Wifi costs €2/day and is very quick and good is you are near a router ( which we were ). Tip look in corridor on ceiling for the router to see how close you are.
Did not use the spa / fitness centre while there but prices looked reasonable. Fitness centre freely available to guests from 5pm.
Taxi from airport costs €25-€30 and is the best option to get to/from hotel/airport.
Long walk to city centre, so don't bother ! Bus tickets which last for 90 minutes ( once you validate them on the bus ) cost €1.30 per trip, Reception sells tickets. The #11 bus stops every 20 minutes from just around the corner. However that stops running after 8pm so if you are coming home later get the 95 to the same stop, you need to check the times as this bus runs infrequently. Get the free hotel shuttle to town between 6-8 pm when the opera is on ( it returns after opera around midnight ).
The train / bus station is a good 20 minute walk away, so again get the bus. Bus stops right outside the train station. Recommend visiting Desenzano, beautiful little town on Lake Garda ( by train €4.25 each way ) and from there getting one of the ferries to visit towns around the lake. Sirmione return costs €6, Garda also worth visiting costs around €19 return on the ferry. Cheaper by bus but the boat trip is beautiful. Train also handy for visiting Venice.
If you do want to walk to the train station take a right by the river running just around the corner and walk staying by the river all the way until you see the station.
Would stay at this hotel again.
