“Great Hotel and Location”
Reviewed 23 June 2009

We stayed at this hotel as part of a 3 stop Italian honeymoon, Verona being our second port of call. Admittedly the hotel is difficult to find as I would think all hotels are in Verona, but once you're there you will not be disappointed. We were lucky with the blue area parking near to the hotel, however the hotels secure parking was relatively expensive. The Hotel gives a grand feel, on arrival we were offered a welcoming drink before our bags were taken to the room. We were lucky enough to be in a fabulous suite (which we think we'd been given as on honeymoon) which had a dressing room, bathroom and bedroom complete with a 42" LCD TV (not that we watched it). The only downside of this room was that there was only one very small window in the bedroom which overlooked a central terrace area therefore needing lights on most of the time, but nothing really to complain about. There was a great selection at breakfast with all staff being very friendly and helpful.
Verona itself, we felt, could be covered in 1.5 days, the amphi theatre was being set up for a concert but we paid to see it anyway but for 6E each we felt very let down as it's quite a lot of money to really see nothing more than you could see through the railings! Save your cash and only go inside if you are lucky enough to be there for an opera.
Eating out - there is obvioulsy masses of restaurants to choose from, we found a gorgeous little place called 'Hostaria la Vecchia Fontania' there is no english on the menu but that adds to the whole event so take a phrase book. Two course each and a half carafe of red wine was only 42E - I had the most gorgous tortellini with beans as a primo.
Great hotel and great City.

It was very difficult in this maze of one way streets to drive to this hotel in the heart of downtown Verona. Hotel was nice enough, with good temperature controls, firm mattress, and nice shower- 155E a night. Beware if you have a car- try to get a free blue parking space on the street (hotel will give you a card for the dashboard, the deposit for which they return to you when you leave) or you'll pay $30 plus a night for a garage space with the hotel. Good location for walking around the city- the arena was a disappointment, filled as a performance venue with rows of seats- probably a nice place to see/hear a concert though.

This is just an excellent hotel in all regards...rooms, location, service, staff. With early morning departure, hotel provided superb boxed continental breakfast at no charge. Our room had a lovely terrace to sit out on.

I cannot being to tell you how great this hotel was. We started to pic a different hotel from Trip advisor and then we saw some negative reviews and picked Accademia. We stayed in Milan, Lugano, Bellagio and Verona and this was our favorite hotel. Every amenity you could ask for as well as location cleanliness and friendliest service. A first class hotel and decent prices for visitors from USA. Free internet, that was a real plus. Great location. I cannot sat enough about how great this hotel was. What a lovely surprise. Thanks all!

Have just returned from 10 days and 4 hotels in Italy. Three 3 star and this 4 star hotel. There is a quantum leap between the 3 star and 4 star Accademia.
Accademia is sited within 200m of the Arena, Giulietta's house and other attractions. Bags carried to room (not what you get with 3 star). Our room had a large bedroom and bathroom with (small) bath. How I missed the mould and smell of the Italian 3 star hotel bathrooms ! Large flat-screen TV (disappointedly, the only English language on it was CNN World News, but this is common with most Italian hotels). Air Con worked well and was virtually silent. Also, I could understand how to work it ! The blinds were electric and the windows so well glazed all light and sound were completely eliminated at night. No balcony nor pool as is typical of a 'town' hotel.
Reception area was spacious and well furnished in 'Gentlemens' Club Style'. Even an English newspaper (The Times of course). Signed photos on the wall of faded stars (I think I recognised Caruso).
Breakfast was in a large and airy dining room on the first floor, although no obvious views from the tables. Good quality 'Continental' plus scrambled egg. Waiters looked smart and attentive without being supercilious.
There were possible evening meals at the hotel. A specimen menu showed a price of E35 for a typical Italian meal. This may not be as expensive as it seems when compared to the Verona tourist prices !

Great choice that I made thanks to Tripadvisor. location cannot be beat and comfort and luxury are very much appreciated. Dated but elegant, a true grand dame of a hotel. I would not change a thing and would definitely return here. Comfortable attractive room with nice air and good wireless internet for me to write this review. Hello from room 243 right now. Nice staff, polite and what a pretty and interesting city to visit.

This was our second stay at the Accademia. We requested the same room and was allocated it on arrival which was appreciated. The hotel itself is lovely & in a fabulous location. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The only thing which would make it perfect is if there were tea & coffee making facilities. Having said that hot and cold drinks are freely available in the lounge at no charge. The staff are very helpful and speak good English! They helped us arrange a trip to Venice by supplying train timetables and arranging a taxi to the train station. Venice is well worth a visit, as its a beautiful place with lots to see & do.
Verona itself is a beautiful place. The restaurants are very good and reasonably priced. The local wine is also very good! A visit into the arena is a must. We also had a tour around Verona in a horse and carriage which was wonderful!
We will return to Verona and will definately stay at the Accademia again!
