Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

Great location. Nice room decor, good size bed.

Pillows were very hard and the shower very weak.

Staff friendly enough and Meribel in reception was incredibly friendly and helpful.

Restaurant on site but slow service.

Breakfast - basic and not that great
Cheap alternative to Nutella which is awful.

One night stay fine - not sure about longer.

After staying in Lake Garda the service was non comparable
No personal service here - very impersonal - Meribel was the exception.

It served the purpose of a one night hotel. Disappointing in many areas great in others.

Stayed: June 2014

Hotel Verona is a boutique hotel one block from the ancient city center. Our room had a fireplace and a small balcony for around $100/night. You can walk to everything from this location. The room was comfortable and clean and large for Eurpean standards. The bathroom was recently updated with tile and was also very large.

This wonderful hotel may not be the cheapest in the bag, but the rooms are fantastic and the location is one of the best you can find in Verona. A bus straight from the train station into Piazza Bra, you won't need to walk far or take long to find this hotel as it is just to the left side of the Arena next to Louis Vuitton. The decor is tasteful and refined and the rooms are extremely comfy, posh and spotlessly clean. Once again the location is amazing, and you can walk to almost all the fantastic attractions on foot from there. The daily breakfast also has a nice spread of wonderful preserves and different types of bread, together with ham, bacon, and the regular mix. You won't regret it, especially when the tourist tax is only 1.5 euro, compared to Milan at 5 euro per day per person.

We loved this hotel. The staff were brilliant (special mention for Isa), the location could not be any better, just yards from the best attraction in Verona, the Roman Arena and Piazza Bra. I have reviewed a fair few hotels and this is I think the best. Small rooms but with every convenience and a very comfy bed. The bathroom was kitted out with French fittings, beautifully finished, windows overlooking the picturesque street down to the Arena. Breakfast very good, I cannot fault it and it justly deserves all the praise. We stayed at the start of June and will definitely come back to Verona another year, when the opera season starts (end of June). No question, we will book this hotel.

Room Tip: Email the hotel direct with your room requests even if booking via an agent. Try to get a front-fac...

We stayed here ten years ago and once again, you can't beat the location! The rooms have been redecorated, small but comfortable, clean, beautiful decor. The most fun was seeing Antonio, the morning breakfast waiter our first morning, we met him ten years ago here at Hotel Bologna! Breakfast is at best, delicious and varied in selection. The desk staff was most informative, will return another time.

Room Tip: Rooms in back are quieter but I love the street view and seeing the activity. Closing the shutters d...

this is a fantastic clean property in the best location in Verona. The rooms, corridors, and everything within the property is very exquisitely designed. The rooms were not extremely large, but surely comfortable.

We had a wonderful two night stay in May. Upon checkin we were greeted by Isa, she was extremely courteous and promptly informed me without being reminded that she had given us a 'room with a view' as requested in my online booking.

Breakfast was excellent at the restaurant, and the complimentary bikes were perfect for exploring the city. We had a lovey stay.

Many positives.....great location, friendly / excellent service, clean rooms, excellent decor, excellent breakfast. I settled my bill directly with hotel (booked via hotels.com) and at check out the senior receptionist presented me with a leather wallet for my credit cards, which was stamped with a Hotel Bolgna - really nice touch. Bit more about the great location.... A street bar is directly opposite the hotel. This became our local ! Almost directly onto via Mazzini (main shipping street), and piazza Bra (where the Arena is). All in all I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to others

Room Tip: We over looked the small street with the Bar opposite and could see the piazza Bra at and angle. Ha...
