Historical Traveler Reviews Accademia Hotel Verona
This hotel is absolutely lovely. It is centrally located and although located in the middle of town, the rooms are very quiet at all times. The lobby is lovely, allowing for one to have a drink and read the several international newpapers while resting up for the opera that evening, for example. The staff is very professional, helpful and friendly. I highly recommend the hotel as well as the elegant city of Verona.
Great, except for the noise of the refurbishment on the 2nd floor
Spent one night here in January 2005. First impression of the hotel was great. Central location, room size was massive in European standard, bathroom was clean and large. Rates were very reasonable. We arrived at 10am and was given a room straight away. Refurbishment was being carried out upstairs which we did not pay any attention to as it was during the day and hotels do normally carry out work during their quiet seasons. However the noise continued until well after 10pm. We called the reception at that stage and was told no work was being carried out in the hotel, not only not at that hour, but not at all. Which was a bit strange as everyone could see that one floor of the hotel was boarded up with walls being knocked down, floors taken up. And strangely still, the noise stopped after our phone call. All in all, I would still recommend this hotel-surely, the work would have finished by now. But one advice: do not order the coffee at breakfast, it was one of the worst cup of coffee I had in the 10 days we spent in Italy.
Really enjoyed a weekend in Verona and this hotel was a big part of that.
Superb location for everything central. Very friendly staff and fine quiet room Large bathroom with huge shower area if no bath, looked like one might have been there in a past life!
Breakfast very Italian with an amazing selection of those dried cakes and biscuits that Italians seem to love.
If driving make sure you know exactly how you are going to get to the hotel. Especially at night, its not as simple as the hotel website might suggest. Hotel park car for you useful pull in just in front.
Best deal in Verona
We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in September. I totally agree with the other reviews that the hotel is a real bargain for the comfort of the rooms and the loacation. Wish to echo the remark that the hotel restaurant is one of the best in Verona. Verona is a lovely quaint city and well worth a visit.
Good central Hotel
The Hotel Accademia provided us with a comfortable two nights in September 2004. It has all the facilities you expect from this grade of hotel. We stayed in a very quiet room, sometimes difficult to find in Italian cities. Very central, it is in a pedestrian area - though taxis can reach the front door. Staff efficient and pleasant.
Great - We will go again
My partner and I stayed for 3 days in March 2004. The hotel was very clean, quite, comfortable and ideally located. The room, a standard king, was very clean, plenty of room for two and tastefully decorated.
All the staff we encountered seemed friendly and took the time to talk with us. While at the time of our visit the hotels adjoining resturant was closed, the breakfast was good. Due to the hotels locations lots of places to see, shop and eat are close by, we especially enjoyed the Gruppa resturant which was a very traditional Italian venue located nearby on dark side street. Vegetarians try the "Pumpkin Ravioli" a Verona special. We will go again
I will stay again
I have stayed in this hotel 3 times and will keep coming back. It is not cheap, especially in the summer when the opera is on. It is in such a good place however, and staff are superb. I had a single room which was quite small but the other facilities and the ambience made up for that. The air conditing worked well. Met some women who visited us because they were staying in a much more expensive hotel that didn't have decent air conditioning. Periodically there was free champagne in the afternoon in the lounge. The public areas are nice. Highly recommeded
We went to Verona on a short honeymoon and asked our travel agent to book any four-star hotel. We stayed in the Hotel Accademia, our first good move. The hotel is central to everything including the wonderful shops. It is, though, surprisingly quiet and tranquil with curteous and helpful staff and comfy sofas and tables dotted here and there. The bedrooms are mostly large and well furnished, and the buffet breakfast sets you up for the day.
We had our best meal in Verona in the hotel restaurant - 37 euros for the set menu, and we ate more than is decent or necessary.

My very pleasant week on Lake Como was to come to an end
this morning as I departed Menaggio for Cortina in the Dolomite Mountains. It’s
about a five and half hours’ drive so I broke the trip in Verona, the romantic
city of Romeo and Juliet fame. It was with some reluctance I left the Grand

... the bus back, that we are on now, we had to pay for! Lucy, who had budgeted 20€ for the next few days, was not pleased. Writing this later: We agreed it would be a good idea to do the free pasta cooking class at the hostel. Pasta is not too hard to make we learnt- mix eggs and flour, then roll it out and then cut it into strips. Sounds like it would take no time at all. However with a group of 30 that all had to one-by-one use the pasta mangle, which ...
... much because we could swim at last. Running and throwing ourselves into the ice cold lake wasn't quite as simple as we imagined as firstly the floor of the lake was covered in loose big rocks and the water was almost bath temperature warm. Secondly Katie didn't enjoy the clay floor once you'd got past the rocks. Complaints aside it was nice to swim. We sunbathed for a few hours however much to Emma's disappointment the sun wasn't full blast. ...
... the masons. We were treated to a reenactment in the dark about an unusual member principessa Maria Christina of the ruling Savoy family. Although married to the king, she was sent to a castle away from Torino during the plague. There she took several lovers who were mysteriously found dead floating down a river. Enjoyed the tour even though I missed a lot. It was late so we took a taxi back to the house which was fine by ...

Right now I am the only person in this car and unless other people board in Milano I truly will be traveling alone. The hotel was a pleasant surprise. Hotel Mastino that we found at the last minute is only a few minutes walk to the Arena. Had to walk across the street to another part of the hotel but the room though compact was really ...
