The Due Torri Hotel has, arguably, the best position in town. You are a short walk from everything : shops, churches, the Arena, the tourist attractions and many popular restaurants and cafes.
The rooms are comfortable, well decorated and tastefully furnished, but slightly small for the price, while the bathrooms are very small for such a grade of hotel. Beds and bedding are good with a comfortable quality mattress.
The public areas are grand, if a little dark in places, and are spacious and marbled. The whole effect is that the hotel feels like a stately home. But, just like a stately home, it has very little warmth in its atmosphere. In fact, the large public lounge is almost permanently deserted, despite the hotel being full when I stayed. People come in to sleep and to breakfast, but not for much else.
Sadly, the hotel doesn't have many facilities, it charges heavily for parking, and its free wifi is a little slow at times, but adequate for email.
The breakfast buffet is served in an attractive location on the ground floor and boasts a good selection of basic items - but nothing exceptional - and is served until 10:30 ( in case you are a late riser like me ).
There are so many restaurants in town that most people choose to dine out, but this hotel does boast a rooftop terrace grill restaurant, which sounds an ostensibly attractive proposition.
I can confirm that it is indeed a pleasant enough setting, with a view across the rooftops in all directions; but that's all that is good. While the service was prompt for our table and the one other table that was occupied, the food was very poor indeed. The appetizers were just plates of salami, ham and so on, served with no accompaniment. The main courses were exceedingly limited : none of the list of 8 fish on the menu were available, with only a fritto misto offered, or a 'lumberjack fish'. Anybody heard of that one? I didn't risk it.
The various grilled meats were poorly cooked, greasy and tough, while again the accompaniment was very deficient, with no real choice. The wine was fine, but expensive, as was the whole meal; in fact it was very expensive at about double the cost of most independent restaurants in town. All in all, it proved to be very poor value for such sub-standard food.
In conclusion, this hotel has a fantastic position in Verona, but in every other way is quite average, so seems a little expensive for what you get. The rooftop restaurant is to be avoided.
