My husband and I loved this hotel. The service from the moment we arrived with our car and our luggage was impeccable. The man at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. Although I had booked a superior double room, I believe that we were put in a junior suite. It was a really lovely, very modern room with all the modern conveniences. Some other reviewer said it is not romantic. Maybe not, but it is very comfortable which is even better. Although we appreciated the extra room of the junior suite, I think a superior double would probably be entirely adequate. The junior suite had a slightly odd shape with the living room being very long and narrow. The website says the junior suite has a queen sized bed but ours was definitely king sized which we appreciated.
It was as hot as blazes in Verona while we were there last week but the room was kept at a very comfortable temperature by the excellent airconditioning system. Our room looked out on the quiet street but it was so hot out there that we kept the shutters closed so as to keep out the sunlight. Some other reviewer commented that there wasn't much view. Our room had a bit of a view - the building across the street - but as I said, it was so hot outside that we never even looked out.
This hotel is not in the center of the tourist district. But the Old City is small and from the hotel you can easily walk anywhere. It is only a 10 minute walk from the Arena which was good after seeing the opera there and walking back in the dead of night.
The breakfast was excellent. It included cold cuts of meat and cheese with a variety of bread, a few types of cold cereal, yogurt, lots of fresh, delicious fruit, pastries, eggs to boil to taste, juice and coffee. I found it more than adequate.
The man at the reception (I didn't get his name) was extremely helpful and recommended restaurants in the area. He was a pleasure to deal with.
