Chris tmas Day! Originally we wanted to go to Lake Garda but we decided to explore Verona. Shops are closed but some restaurants are open. We mostly took a walk along the river and enjoyed the view. We never crossed the river to the other side. We had lunch in a cafe near the Duomo where people just finished a …
It was Christmas Eve and we did a day trip to Milan. One reason why we stayed in Verona was to do a day trip to both Milan and Venice without having to bring our luggage to the train (although we changed it a bit in the end). We took the Frecciabianca train that took 1 hours and 20 minutes each way. Upon …
We bid goodbye to Munich as we traveled to Italy via Brenner Pass. This was another reason why we went to Munich. We knew we wanted to stay in Verona. If we went there via Milan, the Milan - Verona express train only stopped in Verona for 2 minutes before continuing to Venice. The Munich - Verona train ends in …
... The first ride I went on was the Colorado Rapids. Mum got sopping wet and so did I. Next I went on this ride where you went up a ramp and then you turned upside-down! I was hanging out of my seat, but I had this harness on which kept me from falling and cracking my head open. It was scary at first then I got used to it. The next ride we went on was a proper ...
... Switzerland... Just before I end this blog... It's our beautiful daughter Nicki's 30th birthday tomorrow, and obviously we can't be there to share it with her, but we both want to wish her a fantastic birthday and tell her that we love her so ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
We booked this hotel with the expectation that it's within 5 minutes walk to the train station but it turned out more like 15 minutes walk so it's not that close, especially with luggage. It's also about 10-15 minutes walk to the city center. The upside is being outside the city, taxis can drop you at the front door. The hotel itself is very good, especially the bathroom. Breakfast was great and the staff was very helpful.

A Green Hotel
My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights from Sept. 27th. This was our first experience of a 'Green" hotel. Energy saving is the object of the exercise - though nothing was lost with respect to comfort and service. The location is great - 10 minutes walk from the train station and the Arena. Our room was huge - very airy and light ; a comfortable bed ; complimentary (take home) slippers ; full internet access. Breakfast was good and the staff were very helpful. A hotel to be recommended.
Ma femme et moi y avons séjourné deux nuits à partir du 27 septembre. Il s'agissait de notre première fois dans un hôtel écologique. L'objectif était d'économiser de l'énergie, même si cela n'a rien changé pour nous en matière de confort et de service. Très bien situé : à 10 minutes de marche de la gare et des arènes. Notre chambre était immense, bien aérée et lumineuse. Lit confortable. Pantoufles de bienvenue qu'on a rapportées. Accès libre à Internet. Le petit déjeuner était délicieux. Le personnel était serviable. A recommander.
Thanks to the Ryanair shuttle from Brescia "Internazionale" Airport, you only have a journey of about 45 minutes to the bus terminal in Verona. From there it is only a 10-15 minute walk into the centre and the Firenze. It is really easy to get to, the hardest part is working out getting out of the bus terminal! (head for 'centre storico' and Corso Porto Nuovo from there)
We went to Verona on a whim and arrived at 9pm on a Sunday night. Our first impressions of Verona were the railway area which was a bit off-putting but we walked off in the direction of the historic centre (there were signs pointing the way). About 10 mins walk away we saw the Hotel Firenze and despite the fact we normally avoid chain hotels we were tired and cold and wanted to dump our luggage. The girl on the front desk couldn't have been more helpful, within minutes we were in a warm, comfortable room, with a balcony overlooking the street and a fantastic bathroom which had a power shower, with foot massaging jets etc, a bidet and lovely italian tiles.
Exactly what a 4* Hotel should be...
This Hotel is good on all fronts: Hotel service, breakfast, room comfort, bathroom amenities, room size, location (about 5 mnts walking from medieval city center), pricing...
The only small critic would be the choice of colors in their room decoration: Flashy green armchairs is not what I consider being the best color.
Aside from this, again, this is a very good Hotel and has scored highly on every single point that is important for a Hotel.
My wife and I would definitely use this Hotel next time in Verona!
The hotel is very modern and compact. Outside and in it's not special but it is extremely comfortable and only 10 minutes into the centre of town. For the price, distance from town and the quality of hotel I think it was the best deal on offer.
We went in September and the weather was immaculate. The town itself is very relaxing and laid back. The shops are very glam and the bars are full of trendy italians. Food was excellent and all in all the prices were quite reasonable.
If you want to get away for a day take a trip to nearby Lake Garda. You can get there on the train in half an hour and it was well worth the visit.
Great Hotel 5/5
Not a pretty looking hotel from the front, but once inside the reception staff are very friendly, there are a number of really nice leather sofa's and the rooms are large and very well equiped.
The centre is around 5/10 minutes walk away and around 5 minutes walk from the train station.
Well worth a stay if your staying in Verona.
Nous avons séjourné deux nuits dans cet hôtel en septembre 2004. Le personnel est efficace et serviable.
We have stayed in this hotel on September 2004 for two nights. The hotel staffs were efficient and helpful.
I stayed at this hotel for a week in 2002 and again in 2004. The staff are excellent and the breakfast is quite nice. The rooms and amenities are of a quality normally found in much more expensive hotels. The staff met special requests with ease and were gracious even to rather demanding guests. There is a grocery store (PAM) further down the Corso Porta Nuovo to the left and it is only a very short stroll to the Piazza Bra with numerous restaurants. The rooms were quiet, clean, and comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel for its location and the warmth of welcome. It is only a short walk to the train station, and the local bus that runs from Lake Garda stops nearby.
