Very pleasant staff, nice family run hotel. Rather outside historic center, but about 30 min walk or 10 min by bus (station opposite the hotel). Possibility of parking, undeground garage (for about 9 cars, partly problems for bigger SUV). Breakfast for request, choice of planty possibilities (eggs, salami, ham, vegetables, rolls,croissants). Parking plus breakfast for extra pay, possibility of dinner in hotel too. Generally - good value for your money!

We normally stay closer to the arena but nothing was available so we chose Albergo Fontana. We enjoyed the use of the bar. Disapointed with the Shower curtain, this needs to be changed as it lets the hoptel down badly. Staff helpful and friendly. bus outside the door. taxi needed for return

Difficult to know how best to describe this albergo.My room was big for a single,smartly furnished ,altho the blind shot right up to the top and as the windows were high it wasn't possible to pull it down.The maid didn't do so either.As the room was at the front overlooking the bus stop on the other side of the road this was a nuisance as drawing the heavy curtain cut out the light. Breakfast,which cost 5 euros was taken down in the bar which was open to the public all day.I had juice,pastries and tea which did me fine and the bar had nice tables.There was a courtyard area at the rear which was overlooked and had loud pop music blasting out. The hotel is a good bus ride from the centre but the bus stops are outside which is handy and you can buy tickets in the bar.The area is full of medical type shops and funeral parlours as the geriatric hospital is opposite the hotel ! The lack of eating places was a drawback altho' a snack type menu was on offer at the bar.Overall the hotel was more than adequate the staff pleasant ( not much english spoken) But I don't know that I'd stay here again altho' I can't pinpoint why.

We had a great stay at the family-owned hotel fontana, the staff is very friendly. Everything was perfect and we had also an excellent meal at the hotel bar. The hotel is outside the city, but the bus just leaves in front of the hotel and so you're in the center of verona just in a few minutes. Near the hotel you can also find a very nice italian restaurant (Ca'Trentina), just ask the staff for advice :D

Small family run hotel. Friendly, courteous and welcoming, the staff were as nice as one could wish. It's a fairly modest hotel, but well-kept and so far as we could tell, good value when compared to what's on offer in and around Verona. The big minus point of course is the location - which is a good half an hour's walk from the centre of Verona/Arena location. Normally not a problem for us but as this was a particularly hot August it could be a trial in the heat of the day (on the walk back from the Opera at 1.20am it was a more comfortable 28 degrees celsius!) However although you're not going to get a bus after the Opera is finished (with the long intervals they don't finish until around 1am)- and getting a taxi is just about impossible too, the bus stop directly opposite the hotel does run a fairly frequent service into Verona during the day. Less so at night, although there are buses which stop a few hundred yards away, turning away from the hotel once they've passed the hospital. Better still, the buses also go on to the main railway station - tickets for the bus can be bought in the hotel and they're only 1€ for an up to 60 minute journey. You'll need to make use of this because unfortunately the only restaurant we found close to the hotel seemed to be shut for the August holidays. More centrally located hotels did look to be significantly more expensive. I'd recommend this hotel only if you're reasonably fit and active, or have independent transport. It's a compromise option, which is a shame because it would be nice to be able to give the place a more whole-hearted endorsement.

Nice hotel, highly recommended. Good welcome on arrival, the man at reception was very helpful. The room was pleasant and generally clean, although we found the shower was not spotless. No breakfast was included in the price, which would have been nice (given the price of the room). The hotel has a car park, which is reasonably priced (€5 per night?). The hotel is not right in the city centre, but this is clear from maps on the internet. It's about 1.5km to the city centre, which is walkable, but the hotel is also on a bus route which takes you to the city (the man at the reception explained this and was able to sell us tickets too). The buses back at night were a bit confusing however, so make sure to find out which ones go past the hotel.

We stayed at the Fontana for 2 nights when we had booked at the Opera. This is a small family hotel with a very authentic Italian character. The hotel staff were most welcoming, helpful and freindly, and we couldn't fault the service. The breakfast and other food was good quality (it is good to have decent coffee in the morning). It is a lovely old building and the courtyard is a most agreeable place to have breakfast and hang out. Its only limitation is distance from the centre (walkable for the young and energetic, but we weren't in that category). No problem during the day as there is a good bus service, but careful thought and planning needed in getting back in the evening.

I was visiting Verona as my choir had 2 concerts in Verona over the wend. The hotelwas not quite as close as I had anticitpted to the city of verona but close enough to walk to in about 15-20mins and there was a bus stop right outside the hotel also. I would recommend, as I chose to do that you do not include breakfast with your stay as the hotel does have a dining area where you can get coffee and a pastry etc etc at most times of the day. The staff were very helpful and I felt as a lone female traveller very comfortable and safe staying there. My single room had a bathroom with natural light and it had a balcony...rather appropriate for Verona I thought!!!

I thought this hotel was overpriced for the quality of the rooms. They were clean and tidy, but the standard of the bathrooms in particular were very basic. Be warned that the hotel does not have its name displayed on the street, so it can be hard to spot. I suggest you have a good look at the photos on this site.

More or less as I'd expected from reviews and hotel write-up I'd read before booking. Very pleased with room and its appointment apart from fact that we had twin beds rather than a double. Traffic from street noisey but expected that. Receptionist very pleasant and helpful, she also spoke English fairly well. Mine host runs the bar in the evenings,speaks hardly any English but is an absolute fruitcake,if you can't have a laugh with him don't go to Itlay. He also does a reasonable evening meal. His wife runs the bar in the morning and is a lady even though busy most of the time. Serves capuccino and a croissant for €2 which isn't bad. There is a nice patio area in the back with umbrellas etc. though we couldn't use it because of the bad weather. When looking for the hotel(I recognized it on the bus from the website photo),it is opposite a hopital,and look out for the building number,they are clearly marked in Verona streets. Buses(21,22 and 93?)every 20 minutes from main station but check with driver it's going in your direction,a few words of Italian helps as does the ability to move sharpish,they don't queue in Italy and the buses don't hang about. Get tickets at Tabacchi in railway station or have right change and pay 20 cents more on bus. Get a €5 international phone card from the Tabacchi,you can call the UK for hours with it. Overall we enjoyed the hotel,it had 'personality'.

I stayed at the Fontana in July with my 19-year old son. The room was very basic, with a bathroom whose floor flooded when we took a shower. Although breakfast is not included in the price (highter than 3 star hotels in Florence, Rome, and Venice), there was a reasonably-priced cafeteria downstairs with friendly staff. The location was quite a distance from the main attractions, and although there was a bus right across the street, this did not run once the opera was over, which required either a 10 euro taxi ride or a 40 minute walk. I would rather spend extra money and stay closer to the arena and old part of the town next time.

At the hotel, everything was as exspected. Visiting the arena in the evening for a opera event, it is realy difficult to get back to the hotel without the own car. There is no more public transportation in the evening, taxis are rare, even 1 hour after the performance has finished, the queue at the taxi point was about 20 meters. So we had an half-hour walk back to the hotel!

Hotel Fontana is a lovely, comfortable hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is perhaps a bit further out from the centre of Verona than we expected - perhaps including information about buses to the hotel on the website would be useful to future visitors.

I was more than surprised when seeing our room , it was excellant. For a two star Albergo it was way beyond expectations. The staff were so kind and helpful with everything we asked for, the bus stop was outside the hotel, the tabac for tickets 5 buildings away and it was wonderful to have a quiet haven for an evening drink on the patio, breakfast too! I would return to this Albergo anytime and would be pleased to recommend it. After staying there we were glad we did not book in the heart of Verona. It was much better than the description

Breakfast outside was lovely. We had a room on the front which proved noisy - we had to keep the windows closed so were very glad we had air con. Buses infrequent and stopped early evening but quick when they came.Rather far from centre - walk half and hour, but certainly excellent value and service.

A very clean and well-appointed hotel on a busy main road opposite the hospital. We had the bonus of a roof-terrace overlooking the hotel courtyard, although we only had time to use it briefly in the morning. We think that only one room has a terrace so it may be worth requesting this when booking. We were in Verona for the opera and found the walk into and out of the city manageable although it took over 30 minutes. If driving to the Fontana we strongly recommend that you avoid the centre of the city as its very busy and confusing - better to use the motorways to get to the north-west and enter on the Via Mamelli.
