TA reviews are a bt like a snowball, once people start raving about a place, more people choose it and you get loads of reviews where the bad ones are lost in the average, so guess what, we statyed there too!
One review had it as a place with little character and they are right - in a city of so much of it, this hotel has been renovated according to the typical 4-start handbook. It really is a tidy place and very clean - a credit to the staff who say good-morning whenever you bump into them on corridors and stairways that this place has a lot of.
The rooms are well sized and well appointed. We were on the 3rd floor that meant we had a lot of light that is actually a challenge in a city that has buildings quite close and all of a similar height; guests further down on the side streets would probably find it quite dard.
We didn't eat in the restaurant - there are plenty nearby, but breakfast was good and the staff attentive. Didn't use the bar either (and it's a bit of an odd layout in the lobby area and personally, I think they should make the bar/lounge area a lot larger and bring it forward to get some life in the place - it was always deserted).
Overall - a good 4-star hotel that, becuase of the size, doesn't reward you with personal sevice, but in a city like Verona, you're using it for the room, so be adventurous. Glad we picked it becuase in the area there are a few to choose from.
