This hotel is typical for a Best Western in tems of its facilities. Limited public areas, tiny unused bar and small but perfectly adequate breakfast room with self service no frills breakfast. But this is not the sort of hotel where you lounge about in the foyer anyway! It is perfect to allow you to get up and out and enjoy all that this wonderful city has to offer. It scores very highly though in a number of areas. Firstly it has recently been renovated and decorated so everything is very clean, smart and tidy and works. Secondly it is in very quiet location down a side street in a quiet part of town surroundied by fine old houses. Thirdly it is in a great location for exploring the city by foot. Nobody but a madman drives into Verona anyway! Its is probably less than 10 minutes from the Piazza Bra and the Arena and nowhere seems to be more than a pleasant 15-20 minute stroll away in this compact City. This is good as its so easy to pop back to the hotel to put your feet up for an hour or so before heading out to join the early evening promenade which is a must - everyone, but everyone is out on the streets from 6.30 - 7.30 before the shops shut and its time to head for dinner!
We had a superior double which was like a junior suite with sliding screens to separate the two areas which was good if one partner wanted to sit up on the comfy sofa and read for a while before bed. Very reasonably priced at under 100 euros b and b
Staff pleasant and helpful. Our taxi for the airport arrived in the time it took me to retrieve my bags from the store on our departure day! 25 euros or thereabouts
Minor quibbles - TV on in the breakfast room - I hate that, its so intrusive. Spoils the restful atmosphere. Pillows a bit hard. Would have preferred more English TV channels. But in its class as a lower mid priced hotel this is hard to beat.
