The problem was the location.Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: Room was very nice and a good size.
Cons: Bar should be open later. Shuttle bus into town. This was supplied at certain times for people going to the opera.
Location: See above. Poor location. Nothing to do without going into Verona.
The actual hotel was very nice. The problem was the location. It was isolated and, apart from a nice pizza restaurant about 5-10 minutes away, there were no bars or restaurants nearby. The hotel, itself, had a small bar that closed at 9 o'clock which was obviously not satisfactory. There were no shops close by either. The centre of Verona was a half-hour walk away along a very busy road or by bus that had a half-hourly service and was less frequent on Sundays.

A few minutes from the centre but good; very cleanPosted Jul 14, 2014
As others are saying, it isn't exactly central. However, you could walk it if you fancied a leg stretch and it's less than 10 euro in a taxi; there is also a cheap shuttle from the hotel, based on the opera times. The hotel also has parking and is the airport side of the centre, so it's a good option if you get it at a good price. The staff are friendly enough; it has old-fashioned big keys etc that you leave at the desk but is otherwise modern and it's extremely clean. Wifi is free. It has everything you need, and Verona is a wonderful city.

Amazing hotel, amazing staff!!!Posted Jun 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
If you are walking or taking a taxi from the train station, the surroundings do not look that appealing. There are old factories and busy motorways around. That is all forgotten once you reach the hotel. The main reception is impressive and the staff are really friendly. The room was absolutely incredible! So comfortable! The mattress was incredible, too many pillows, precise room temperature control and very smart bathroom. On the last evening we didn't want to go all the way to central Verona to have dinner so we asked for suggestions around the area. The restaurant suggested was busy enough and looked impeccable (only a short walk from the hotel) but food was disappointing... After having very good house wines wherever we went, at this place it was just too bad. The pizza was soggy and really badly presented. Staff were friendly. I would recommend going to town.

Not recommendedPosted Nov 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
Chose closest from the Verona station but it was more than 20min. walk. Seems like it was located at a not safe area & smell so bad (fertilizer factory near-by???) Nothing decent to eat around the hotel for dinner. The room air-con was not working, but if we open the window, outside smell so bad......will not recommend to stay here. If you are visiting Verona, stay near the arena or in the city center.

What an awful location!!!Posted Oct 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
When we arrived at the hotel by taxi from the train station, I was in shock. The location of the hotel was horrific! There were two roads on each side of the hotel. A rail line in front, overpasses, underpasses, a construction site on one side, an industrial building with a silo on the other, and abandoned buildings all around. It was unbelievable! Walking in, the lobby smelled like burning tires. All my senses were assaulted! Much to my surprise, the room was nice and neat. And the breakfast, I have to say was really good and varied. But aside from that, it was an awful area to be in. Very scary at night, especially!! This certainly should have been mentioned on the hotel.com site. I will never go back, nor recommend this place to anyone.

handy position for railway stationPosted Sep 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
About 30 mins walk from the old part of Verona but the hotel offers free bicycles so that is very handy. The hotel is close to the railway station (3 mins by cycle) and we used it to visit Venice for the day by train. The hotel is well kept and recently refurbished with a great breakfast. It has no restaurant. Our triple room was supposed to be 25 Sq m but it was much smaller than this but otherwise very nice. All in all a great hotel although some distance from old Verona but at least the area is quiet, if characterless.

Prepare for a busy walk into the city centrePosted Jul 28, 2013
Pros: Breakfast was very good.
Cons: Bar closing early so we couldn't have a drink after dinner
Location: Slightly seedy location
We picked this hotel because we needed a city hotel with parking. The hotel itself was clean and comfortable (although the room was quite small), but it is in an industrial area which appears a bit seedy. It is about a half hour walk into the city along major roads, but it is possible to get a bus. There is a shuttle bus into the city to cater for the opera. We were disappointed to return home one night at around 11pm to find that the bar was closed so we could not have a post dinner drink. The day staff were very pleasant and helpful, the evening staff less so.

Nice hotel but hard to findPosted Jul 16, 2013
Pros: room excellent. Breakfast very good.
This hotel was very nice. Room was excellent, breakfast was very good. One desk receptionist was not very cordial, but all the others were. The location was fine for visiting the center city. About a 30 minute walk. The hotel lends bicycles and if we had known the bike lanes were all on the sidewalks, wide, and safe to navigate, we would have used them rather than walk. Verona is very bicycle friendly. Parking was free in the large hotel lot. You need to pay by the hour for internet which was annoying, but not unusual in similar hotels I suppose. The negative I experienced was that the hotel was hard to find. The streets around it are very busy and not square. Directions provided by a well-known online map service were pretty much useless, street signs are nearly impossible to spot and our GPS couldn't keep up with the speed at which the corners and turns were coming. We finally just parked the car once we thought we were close and walked around till we fond the hotel. The hotel is located in an industrial area. It's safe enough to go out and walk but there are no restaurants nearby. The hotel gave us one place about a 5 minute walk but it turned out to be closed. Fortunately there was a small mom and pop place near there where we were able to get some food. I'd recommend it and go back now that I know how to find it but you need to be prepared or arrive at a low traffic time.
