“Feels like home - with a spa”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

I spent a good few months, on a business trip, at Antica Porta Leona, and have been postively impressed by the excellent value that myself and team were provided.
Staff is smiling, welcoming and extremely polite. Also, they were fast in response to the many requests we had throughout our stay.
Rooms are modern, recently refurbished, and spotless.
Heating / air conditioning get your room at the ideal temperature very quickly.
The spa area is very much enjoyable.
Breakfast features many healthy, home-made options.
... And the location is just perfect.
I would definitely head back to Antica Porta Leona in case I found myself in Verona again.

This beautiful hotel has many attractive points, but unfortunately the poor quality of the bed and of the ventilation system kept us awake.

Among the qualities there is the very nice little underground spa with a small swiming pool (in fact a large jaccusi), a sauna and a very nice hammam. The breakfast buffet is not bad, and you will get a real italian expresso together with a wide choice of fresh fruits, pasteries, eggs, sausages, bacon, yogurt...

The standard double room was very clean (with the exception of dust under the bed), but very small for a 4 star hotel. The small bathroom included a shower (no bath) and was nice to use.

The downside of this hotel is that it has been very difficult to sleep mainly due to the ventilation system. It was very cold outside (about 5°C) but the temperature in the room was very high. We set the temperature to 17 °C but it had no effect (and of course 17°C would have been too cold).
The last night the hotel staff cut the ventilation arguing that it even set at 17°C it was 17 hot degrees and not 17 cold degrees!
This solution was the worst and we had to open the window during the night in order to be able to breathe... but as there is a night bar outside it was noisy.
If you add to this the small size of the bed (yes, a simple 140 cm bed for a double room in a 4 star hotel) and its so so quality, we could not just sleep well.

We had a lovely stay here, the position of the hotel is great, close to everything yet still quiet, there are not many rooms with views, ours was of the wall opposite. The hotel has recently been refurbished and everything is fresh and clean. The breakfasts were very good indeed, the bar was small and not really used.

Our room was lovely, bathrooms are superb, TV was a nice big flatscreen, but not much in English to view. Bed was comfy, decor was tasteful and fresh, the public areas were especially beautiful. The staff were outstanding, nothing was too much trouble and they seemed extremely happy in their work, they recommended things to see, restaurants and bars. One of the nicest Italian trips we have had.

Room Tip: Try to get one with a view down the street

We had a perfect 2 night stay in this hotel during our trip to Verona. Everything was perfect. The location is ideal for discovering the beautiful city of Verona. Its tucked away in a quiet location off the mains streets, but a stones throw from all the attractions the city has to offer. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and the rooms were perfect.

A beautiful boutique hotel tastefully done and in the perfect position for both shopping and site seeing, it is 100 m from the main shopping street and 10 mins walk along that street to the Arena, perfectly nestled in a quite corner, an historic building with valet parking, gorgeous rooms and a spa, breakfast is superb quality, FREE WI-FI which is for some unknown reason at a premium in Italy.
Although not cheap it is good value for the quality accomodation. When we return to Verona we will most definitely stop here again.
Be sure tpo visit the traditiona restaurant and wine bar Botteca Vini, its a few feet, down a left turn, that is 100m down the main shopping street. You wont be sorry!

Room Tip: 103 has the front balcony, although it faces the quite street it is nice to step out and is on the f...

Just returned from a two night stay at this place. Booked based on all the positive reviews here on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. They made everything about our stay easy and wonderful. Corresponding with Giulia at the front desk was a delight and dealing with her in person was even better. The whole staff was very courteous and welcoming not to mention knowledgeable about all the restaurants, events, shops etc. that Verona has to offer. The location was fantastic---close enough to all the sights but on a very quiet side street so no traffic noise at all. Antica Porta Leona is a small hotel that has recently been renovated so everything works very well---especially the air conditioning---we really appreciated this as it was very hot during out stay. The buffet breakfast was very nice with lots of choices as well as omlettes made to order if you asked. We had the Tosca suite and it was decorated beautifully with a lovely bathroom and nice amentities. In short, this is a great place to stay in Verona---our suite was not cheap but we felt it was worth every penny for such luxury and comfort in the heart of an incredible city in the high season. We cannot wait to return to Verona next year and will most certainly stay again at Antica Porta Leona for a most personal and pleasurable hotel experience. We thank everyone there for a wonderful time and highly recommend this for a great stay in Verona.

Room Tip: If you can, spend the extra $$$ and get one of the opera-themed suites. You won't be disappointe...

Booked this hotel through Expedia and very pleased with my choice. Everything was prefect-
The hotel looks very impressive from the outside (especially if you arrive at night)
The room was gorgeous and very comfortable- a/c, free Wifi, lovely bathroom etc.
Free use of the spa- the Jacuzzi, sauna, and cold mist shower all amazing as where the treatments- recommend the full body massage!
There was a huge selection of food at breakfast- all very fresh and tasty.
Staff where very friendly and helpful- and they gave us a free upgrade :-)
The location is also great- 5 mins to the Arena and Piazza delle Erbe.
Verona is gorgeous and this is the perfect hotel to explore it from- can't fault it at all.

Room Tip: I requested a room upgrade when I booked on Expedia and we got it- so well worth asking!
