Reviewed 13 July 2009

Stay here and everything in Verona is conveniently on foot. The Arena (for the opera - we saw the Barber of Seville) is about 10 - 15 minutes.

We were upgraded to a suite and although the rooms are small, everything was clean and staff were friendly. The buffet breakfast (part of our deal) was good, although we were a little surprised to find cheap orange juice - just not in keeping with the antique glam of the surroundings.

The Sky TV was not working, but frankly I was only going to put on background music so I didn't even bother to report it.

A charming little hotel.

We only stayed one night in a smallish double room, but there was still room for a sofa and writing desk. Unfortunately the air conditioning was broken and the room was extremely hot as the windows opened onto an enclosed courtyard - we wouldn't have wanted to stay any longer without air conditioning!

The staff were extremely helpful in arranging trains and taxis for us, and giving us hints of where to go to get wonderful views. The breakfast buffet was a sight to be seen, and they even made us fresh toast.

The common areas of the hotel are delightful and quirky.

Downsides: We didn't like the mirrored doors everywhere or the black bathroom, but that's just a matter of taste. And obviously no air conditioning made it very hot. Parking cost 30 euros a night in their secure parking garage - apparently about a half hour away from the hotel.

This hotel is a little gem in the heart of Verona. Overall the location was perfect, very central with very attentive staff and big comfy rooms and beds. Verona is such a beautiful city and this hotel completely compliments it. It is cosy, comfortable and has lots of interesting "antique" touches. The staff were very helpful when it came to recommending restaurants and both that they recommended were excellent, full of Italians and not tourists. Its only downside is that it is fairly expensive but it's worth it if you want a romantic treat in a beautiful and very romantic city.

One of us was here 15 years ago but the place has changed little. A gloriously over-decorated interior with eccentric collection of real and fake antiques , minimalist it is NOT . But for those of us who love the warm atmosphere, the cosy and comfortable rooms, the impeccable and friendly service, the ease of valet parking in a nightmare city, the two loquacious parrakeets and the perfect location for all the main sites, then the Gabbia d'Oro is 'perfetto'. The bathrooms could do with an update and the lighting was too gloomy to read by but overall we loved our suite. We will certainly go back.

  • Liked — Quality antique furniture and colouful furnishings
  • Disliked — Not enough good light for reading, bathtub (jacuzzi) a bit ancient.

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time at this hotel just before New Year. The location is fantastic, within 1-3 minutes of almost everything in central Verona, yet so quiet and peaceful. The staff are friendly, helpful, eloquent. Although our double classic room was not big, it was beautifully furnished and highly luxurious. The only problem I found was the the lack of a shower curtain or rail in the (delightful) old-fashioned bath tub, which led to difficulties avoiding flooding the bathroom!

Basically, if you book here, you will not be disappointed, this is a genuinely outstanding hotel, I imagine the best in Verona.

  • Liked — Location and the luxurious bedroom
  • Disliked — lack of a shower rail, no free car park

We only stayed for one night but this was our second visit - we stayed here for 3 nights in 2004.

The location can't be beaten. You are a short walk from the duomo, the arena, the art gallery/museum & right by the gorgeous piazza erbe

We had a suite on the first floor which was impeccably clean & comfortable although the decoration is very fussy. Infact the decor throughout the hotel is very fussy & makes the public rooms gloomier than they need to be.

The staff were very helpful & efficient.

This is a convenient & comfortable hotel in a great spot.

  • Liked — The bed was very comfortable & the location is perfect.
  • Disliked — The over fussy decoration.

We had a very clean charming suite (room 206) with frescoes on the wall, but there wasn't much place to keep our clothes.
The bathroom was very pretty, but it didn't have a shower, so I flooded it when trying to wash my hair. There wasn't any hook to hang the towels either.
Our son and daughter-in-law were there too, and their suite was just perfect! (room 103). With lots of room to keep clothes, bars for towels and best of all: SHOWER!!!
Breakfast wasn't fantastic, although it had all we are used to eating.
The staff was courteous and helpful.
The best thing was the location. Surely the best in town.
