This is a clean, well run and friendly hotel that is located 5 minutes from the main railway station Porta Nuova Verona. Although the hotel is located near the station you do not need to take a taxi there as it is easy to locate and definitely not a difficult walk, even with a suitcase. If you don't like night walking then this bit may not work - a taxi might be the answer. Either way this is a diamond of a hotel and well worth considering.
We took an airport bus 6 Euros pp from the main airport to the Porta Nuova Verona train station. You purchase the ticket from the machine by the bus stop, it is a bit confusing at first but don't panic as it is all written in English. Twenty minutes later you are at the train station and then a 5 mins walk. No need to take a taxi.
The friendliness and knowledge of the staff on the reception desk made our stay there all the more enjoyable. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was clean and well cared for. The Shower panel (in the bath) was a bit of a challenge but no problem once you got used to it!
The breakfast they served was excellent. With very fresh fruit, cheeses, ham and breads plus some croissants, cake and real coffee! All included in the room tariff.
Good to note: Walk back to the Train station and the Buses into town are located at stand A. The day buses numbers change their at night after I believe 9.00 o clock. The trip into town takes around 5-8 mins. You can walk it but no need as the buses are fairly regular. Also you can purchase a day ticket or a one trip ticket(s) from the reception desk.
We also took trains to Venice (wonderful, but very busy in the main areas) and Vicenza (fabulous and a great place to visit) all very dooable....and actually that was also the nicest thing about being based at the hotel - we would not have made these trips out of town if we had been based in the centre (well at least we think we would not have done so). We purchased our train tickets from the automatic machine (also in English) - although I expect we did not get the best price. However, the queue was long to purchase tickets from the ticket office. If you can and have time then buy them the night before. Don't forget to validate them before boarding the train (there are machines on every platform).
The Hotel also offered a shuttle service for those attending the Opera which was a nice touch and they again were very helpful in pointing this out 5 Euros pp each way - well worth it as it ends late. (The Opera season is now over, so not sure if that continues for other events ending late?)
The downside is that you are not in town to wander out to eat. There really is nowhere to eat in the area. (or at least that we found). We got buses all the time but you can arrange for the hotel to call a taxi.
Thanks to the staff and we will return!
