This is for the Hotel Bologna in Verona, Italy. Had a very brief (overnight) stay. Property had just been renovated. We opted to stay here b/c we could get 2 triple rooms making it a good value. Typical European hotel in terms of small shower. Unlike others' experience, hotel staff we encountered were friendly, helpful, spoke excellent English, etc. Nice that breakfast is included. Call or e-mail in advance to determine if you're arriving when your car can be parked in the garage. If not, do NOT go to the hotel thinking you can unload and then find parking. Streets are very cramped/narrow as it's in the historic section. You will cause a traffic jam if you try to double park and people will be very unhappy with you:). Better to park at new, huge, well-lit, parking garage, Piazza Cittadella, quick 5 min. walk away/outside city walls. We had no trouble parking there and rolling our luggage to hotel. A very nice, albeit quick, stay in an extremely convenient historical location in Verona. Can walk to all tourists sites from it. Very good restaurants nearby. Recommended as long as you're used to smaller European boutique type properties.

Nice, tidy small hotel with a smart and very good 'Restaurant Rubiano' beneath. The location is 150m from the Roman Arena and the bottom of the traffic free Via Mazzini which is the main shopping street in central Verona. We borrowed five of the hotels bicycles and spent two happy hours riding around the surprisingly traffic free streets of the old city centre.

The decor is very out of date, the room I stayed in had little natural light, the carpet was dark blue and the curtains peach. The furniture is old. I felt depressed as soon as I entered.

Beware. On arrival, checked in and handed over car keys for garage parking as booked, having parked the car as indicated by receptionist. 10 minutes or more later police are trying to tow car away because it has not been moved to garage. Euro78 fine to pay and Euro45 for release of car. After discussions hotel director agreed to pay the fines because of hotel staff errors. After that all was fine until leaving for airport. Arranged for car to be brought round to leave at noon. Told to be ready with cases to load and leave immediately. At 11.50 we were ready but car did not arrive at noon - same receptionist only sent for it at 1155 and two other cars were brought before ours finally arrived at 12.25! Otherwise all was fine with good breakfast choice, super location and good accomodation.

It is unlikely you find better value: you are VERY central, all entertainment is just below your feet, and the quality is real 4-star. The room is quite big (for Italy), the bathroom is full of character (there is no bath - but an excellent shower). The service is quite good. The directions are actually OK - follow the hotel signs carefully, and you are there without trouble. If you miss - make a round and try again. TomTom directions are also good. You'll be passing through very narrow streets, full of people, be careful, especially in the evening hours when fun is going on. We parked a little bit aside from the hotel, but inside the historical area - it took us some moderate push on the receptionist to get a parking permission card, but it was free of charge (they take you passport as a collateral). If you are for quiet accommodation go somewhere else, or just close the window. You are on a central shopping street, and the day begins early and ends late.

We only had a single night at Verona and wish we could have stayed longer! This hotel is in an excellent position, just adjacent to Piazza Bra. Whilst the traffic at the front door is the usual Italian mayhem, it was very comforting to have a staff member take charge of our vehicle and park it. The room was very good, spacious and clean and breakfast was also very good. Our biggest surprise was being given a gift on parting - a bath robe - even though we had only stayed one night!

This is a perfect hotel if you want to be in the very centre of Verona, you couldn't get nearer to the Arena if you tried! Our room had a balacony over looking the Piaza Bra which was fantastic plus we could hear the music from the Arena. The staff were efficient but not friendly. The garage parking worked well and was good value. You would need a good map or GPS to find the hotel through the one way system. It is is a perfect loaction to tour all the main areas of Verona and is in 5 minutes walk of two of the very best, and most expensive, restaraunts in the city. The bathroom was large with a great shower. We didn't eat in the restraunt attached to the hotel but the breakfast had a varied choice, with decent tea! If you want to be in the heart of the city this is a great choice.

There were two things I didn't like about the Bologna - firstly, getting to it. A nightmare. At one point I could see it. The policeman who had stopped me could see it. But neither of us had any idea of how to get to it. In the end, we parked up, walked to the hotel and got them to explain how to get there by car - and that worked a treat. Then, we booked car parking. What that actually means is that you give the hotel your car keys and wave goodbye to your car until you next need it. It gets parked somewhere about 20 minutes drive away! That said, it was a really nice hotel; fantastically central; gorgeous surroundings, nice rooms, polite staff. I would not hesitate to stay there again, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Our room had a very cute balcony and fireplace (although not working). The location was great - in the heart of Verona, a small hike from the train station (bus available if you don't want to walk). The walls were thin though and we heard our neighbors fighting very clearly late at night. The bed was a bit hard with a lack of good pillows. Very spacious room though for Europe. The breakfast was good. Overall - satisfied with our stay and would recommend to others.

We were very pleased with this hotel. We had a small balcony overlooking the arena and the central square which was great for soaking up the atmosphere. There are only 2 front-facing rooms with balconies though, so make sure you request one well in advance. The hotel has a private car park which costs 16 euros a night. It is expensive, but given the hotel's central location it's got to be expected. Right outside the hotel, by the central square, are a number of nice restaurants and a superb gelaterie (ice-cream shop). It's not expensive but it has the most amazing array of flavours (I recommend Kit-Kat) and the biggest scoop sizes I have ever seen - 2 scoops there is probably equivalent to what you would get for 4 scoops in the UK. Verona is an amazing city and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who hasn't been here already (though be prepared for some culture!). I would definitely recommend this hotel too. It's true that it isn't easy to find; however, that would be the case for any hotel in Verona.

The hotel is perfect for the arena, literally a stone's throw;though it is a bit difficult to find by car.A quick tip:it is just opposite the main entrance!! Also very central to do Verona on foot. Certainly be back.

Sono stata diverse volte a Verona, in diversi alberghi. Questo e' stato il migliore. I stayed in Verona other times. This hotel is the best I tried so far.

Very nice hotel, just what we were looking for. Only problem was, at 7-8am on Saturday morning they were emptying glass recycle bins right outside our window. Seemed like it took at least an hour.

Great location and good breakfast very close to the action .However rooms are not air conditioned and we had a room facing the street so it was either noise or heat (we were there in late September and it was still quite warm).Good shower enclosure and bathroom.

A very nice hotel quietly situated within a few steps of the Arena. Good airconditioning in the room, which was very comfortable - bathroom a bit cramped but modern. Excellent reception, and a brilliant system for taking the car away to an unseen garage, it reappeared exctly at the timle requested. Gooid breakfast in a spacious dininbg room. Thotoughly recommended for a city break in this popular and crowded city. Note that the room prices are considerably higher when there is an opera performance. Rather difficult to find by car - you have to brave semi-pedestrian streets, and the signposting seems to die on you before you get there - make sure you have a good town map. Venere could inprove its access details right across the site, in my experience - its my only complaint about the site.

Nicely located by the Arena. Well run with helpful staff. Hotel is located in an area with many outdoor restaurants so the noise is not the fault of the hotel or guests. Parking is extremely difficult for those travelling by car. 15 euros buys a valet park at a secure lot. I would recommend to others with the above cautions.

We were extremely pleased with our room and our stay at Bologna. Parking was a little bit of a problem, but it was worked out.

Nice hotel, friendly & helpful staff and a great location. Pricey, but probably worth it for the central location. Exceptionally difficult to find if you are not familiar with the city. The directions given were wrong. Numerous signs in the city for this hotel led us to nowhere or in the wrong direction. The exit referenced from the highway doesn't exist. We were very close on several occasions, but when asking directions, none of the locals could tell us where this hotel was. It took nearly two hours to find once in the city. In the end, staying here was worth the effort involved in finding it because of its proximity.

The Bologna hotel is very near to the Arena but none of its room offers the view on it. The heating device as well as in 6 other rooms was out of order which makes a night in winter very unpleasant. The furnishing of the room is also old fashioned. A 10% discount on the bill makes the ratio price for quality still very expensive. The Personal is friendly and the breakfast partly compensated for the inconvenience of the night.

Hotel Bologna in Verona, Italy, was just what I wanted for our 3 day stay there!! My family, my husband and two grown sons, had a lovely spacious room and bathroom. My sons had their own ajoining room with a sliding door with twin beds. We had a master bedroom with a king size bed. It was wonderful!! Very clean and comfortable. The breadfast area was very nice and offered a wonderful selection of foods. Service was excellent! Hotel Bologna is situated right next to the Arena, which is the center of attraction. We were able to walk to other sights and if you wanted, to the bus and train stations. We did take a taxi with our luggage a couple of times to the train terminal and it was only 10 euros. I would definitely select Hotel Bologna again!!These reviews from Venere helped me so much in my selection of hotels for our trip to Italy, I can't praise them enough for the help it gave me!! Thank you!!!
