As our stay was several years ago, my review may be out of date. However, current comments indicate it is not.
We so fell in love with Verona and the hotel that we abandoned our plans to go on to Venice.
Our room was small but exquisite -- every detail was in order. The breakfast was one of the best we have ever had in Europe (and we travel there four to five times a year).
And the staff was outstanding.
My husband and I just returned from a trip to Venice. And we know we made the right choice -- earlier we gave Verona the time it deserved (along with Padua); this time we concentrated on Venice.
Giving each city its due was the right strategy. And I doubt we would have done this if we had not felt so comfortable at Gabbia d'Oro.
