Park Hotel Elefante

Reviewed 8 July 2013

Our stay at the Park Hotel Elefante was great, everything we needed on our drive from Rome to Munich. My husband, myself and our dog were greeted by friendly staff, put in a clean, spacious room with a great bathroom. Breakfast on their outdoor patio was filling and fresh, and dinner was great as well. Free parking and wifi made for a very easy stay, and the drive into Verona city center was quick and extremely easy. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

Apart from the great clean rooms, Nic cooked the best BBQ in the evenings. A great place not far from Verona, in fact a much better place to stay out of the city. Free car parking and free wifi an added bonus.

All of my work colleagues love the Park Hotel Elefante, so I was excited to finally stay here for business last fall. The gardens are lovely, the peacocks, a delightful surprise. The building has so much charm and character. The lobby seating area, the breakfast room, the restaurant, and patio are all cozy and comfortable. It feels like you are visiting someone's home rather than an anonymous hotel chain.

I had a room in the main building off the staircase near the kitchen and main road. That side can be a bit loud, especially with kitchen noise, so request the other staircase if you can. I also had the unusual shower noted in the review below (with collapsible walls), but I didn't mind it. A larger person could have trouble fitting in it, though. My room was large, and I loved opening the windows and shutters to look out over the fountain and gardens.

I was there on business outside of town, but a friend stayed with me in the hotel for a vacation (before my work was done). He was able to navigate the cheap bus service to downtown fairly easily, so this hotel is definitely an option for the budget-minded vacationer. He enjoyed a delicious dinner from the hotel's restaurant at a very reasonable price. (I missed out!) Breakfast included a great selection of fruit, yogurt, pastries, cereals, and the like. The service was very good, too.

It helps to speak some Italian here, as not all of the desk staff speak English. Overall, a fantastic experience at the Park Hotel Elefante. I should note that I hesitated to write a review for a while because I worried that too many vacationers will overrun this delightful, off-the-beaten-path hotel!

Hotel is far from the city center, but with free parking, is a good choice if one can drive to one of the large and convenient parking areas in Verona (Cittadelle is very good choice for parking). The room was dark and needed updating. The bed was very low to the ground and the sofa was wrapped in material that needed replacing. The downside to the room was definitely the bathroom. This was the worst shower arrangement I have ever experienced (and I have traveled extensively). The shower enclosure was folded up against the wall, with the track designed to hold the shower walls protruding into the center of the floor in the bathroom. Very precarious for middle-of-the-night visits to the bathroom. Close to impossible to get a good shower. And the ceramic "shelf" to hold soap, etc., had two indentations with no drainage, so they just filled with soapy water. If the bathrooms were upgraded and the place given a fresher look, this would be a better hotel. Staff was friendly, Breakfast was good. Garden grounds, with peacocks strutting around, were beautiful.

We arrived fairly late on a Friday evening for a five day stay and found this hotel a really pleasant surprise. The staff were very friendly and there was a real home away from home, relaxing kind of feel about the place. It's one of those places where everyone seems to be relaxed, so it's very easy to enjoy conversation with other guests. We didn't expect, but came to love all the peacocks in the hotel gardens, which really helped to make our stay at the hotel enjoyable. We spent most of our time visiting the sights in Verona and the surrounding countryside but always looked forward to our cup of tea back at the hotel after a long day sightseeing. If ever we do go back to Verona, we'll look forward to staying again at the Elefante!

Room Tip: Be prepared for opening the shutters and seeing a peacock up on the roof, just outside of your windo...

We were here in 2011 and returned in 2012 because we enjoyed it so much. Both times we extended our stay. We hope to visit again. Comfortable clean chalet rooms in lovely park setting. Nice friendly people made us very welcome. (Animals welcomed). Good food. Very recommendable!
