We have travelled all over the world and I have to say, staying at Hotel Gardenia was a most pleasant experience. First, the staff were so friendly and helpful in every situation, no matter what we wanted. Second, their breakfast buffet is magnificent, a great way to start the day. Third, the room was clean, the air conditioning worked well and all we needed was there. It is not a five star hotel, but for us, it was perfect and enabled us to thoroughly enjoy our 5-day stay in Verona. A big thank you to all the staff.

I stayed at Hotel Gardenia for a couple nights with my girlfriend. First thing first, the hotel staff is very kind, professional, and helpful: upon arrival, they informed us about hotel rules (such us breakfast and check out hours), gave us a map and briefly explained how to reach the city center and what to see there; they were so helpful that they let us book an extra night on the spot (our reservation was for one night). We are Italian, but I heard them speak English and French, so you needn't worry if you don't speak Italian!
The hotel itself is extremely clean, rooms are big and provide a number of extra features: air conditioning, satellite TV, free wi-fi, closet, safe, desk, a small fridge with beverage and snacks you can buy (to our big surprise, prices were "normal" prices and not the extremely expensive prices you usually find in hotel rooms mini-bars); the bathroom is very comfortable, with a big shower.
The hotel is also provided with an indoor underground parking, and the staff let us leave the car there for the day we checked out (that was very kind of them).
The breakfast is served at comfortable hours (7.30-10.30) and consists of both sweet (including tasty home-made cakes and biscuits, and fresh fruit) and savory food; it's all really good, but please note the the choice is wider for sweet food.
It's not advisable to reach the city center by car, as parking lots are not free and quite expensive (2€/hour), but you have a bus stop right across the street, and it takes just twenty minutes to get to the city center (each ride costs 1,30€, you can buy tickets right at the hotel desk); the last bus back to the hotel is around midnight, so you have plenty of time. As a matter of fact, we only drove to center to visit San Zeno church, because it is quite out of the way.
Last but not least, there's a supermarket just on the other side of the street, in case you need anything.
If I visit Verona again I will definitely come back to this hotel, and I strongly suggest you do the same.

We booked a family room there (2 rooms in one apartment). The rooms were very clean and comfprtable. The hotel was quiet, no noise. Air-con was working. Free parking. Breakfast was fantastic! Buffet with different kind of cakes, fruits, drinks... the best so far I had in the hotels. The hotel is not far from Verona. In Verona parking is free after 8 pm. We enjoyed our stay in this hotel and would definitely recommend it to others. We loved Verona a lot! Don't forget to see Julietta's balcony.

Everything in the hotel is good/very good. It's located not far from the Verona's exit, but it's not so far, if you are on the car. It's very easy to visit the city while staying in this hotel. You drove on car for 5-10 minutes to city center (it's a straight road), then you park on a big parking (city center is ZTL as always), not entering the main parking zone near the river. We found a big parking zone somewhere near university - you better find it before you go to the center. Right near this parking there is a municipal bike rental, so rent the bike for a few euro per day and in a five minutes you are in front of the Verona Arena (where you can park your bike and walk or stay on bike and drive on). The road to Verona Arena took us around 15-20 minutes with all this registering in bike rental program, parking and so on. For the money the location of the hotel is great if you are on the car and it's not so good, if you are without. The parking of the hotel is not closing, so it's like parking your car on the street - anyone can enter the parking zone, which is not good....

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to write about us following your recent stay, your feedback is incredibly important to us.
It was a pleasure to read that you enjoyed your stay in Verona and we are particularly pleased that you found our hotel to be good/very good.
We take advantage of your comments to inform you and all Tripadvisor users that, as other users wrote, the Hotel Gardenia, despite its location in the outskirts of Verona, is well connected to the city centre and to the train station by public bus therefore it could be convenient also to people travelling without a car. Furthermore we would like to point out that our parking places, though they do not close and they are not supervised, they are one underneath the hotel and the other one in our backyard so it is not like parking on the street and they are in a private property.
Thank you also for giving the very useful about the municipal bike rental.
We are looking forward to welcome you back to the Hotel Gardenia.
Kindest regards

Big rooms (huge beds), bigger bathrooms, peace and quiet, civilty and respect ! This are the main characteristics of Gardenia Hotel. Even tough it doesn't have a central location, you can easily go from there to the main places in Verona. The breakfast is very good (and served at a decent hour, also :) ). Helpful and friendly staff, clean rooms, free wi-fi, very good prices for the minibar in the room.
Fatte un bel lavoro ! Grazie per tutto l'aiuto e sono sicura che ritornero' presto !

This is a very friendly and comfortable hotel. The rooms are spotlessly clean, and have satellite TV, small fridge and a large, airy bathroom.
The hotel is outside the centre but is a very easy 15 minute bus ride from the main sights in Verona. The bus stop is just opposite the hotel and costs 1.30 Euros. A taxi after 22.00 is about 12-15 Euros.
The hotel offers a very extensive and fresh buffet breakfast.
The reception staff are particularly helpful and happy to give tourist and local information.
There is a supermarket opposite and a large Lidl just 3or 4 minutes walk away. I would definitely stay here again.

We had a double and a regular room for a night in Verona. Both rooms were a good size, very clean, and the AC worked like a charm during the hot night. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is a bit far from the center; however, if you have a car, this shouldn't be an issue. (I heard they were selling bus tickets at the front desk, so, definitely a plus!) We had a slight problem with the WiFi: the username/password combos they gave us weren't always working properly, and we couldn't connect at all in one of the rooms. Also, Italian outlets are a little troublesome if you want to charge your devices without the proper converter! The breakfast was okay, considering it was included for a very reasonable price. All in all, it was a very pleasant stay for a great value!
