Torcolo Review

In addition to a central location close to the arena and Piazza Brà, you can count on this budget choice for a warm welcome, helpful service, and pleasant rooms with late-19th-century furniture. The large breakfast, which costs extra, is served on the front terrace in summer. Note that during opera season and during the wine fair, the price for a double jumps by about 50%.

    Torcolo Review

    The hotel is very centrally located, one block from the Arena. You can walk everywhere. The room they gave us was OK, not much light though, and there was noise from the street and downstairs restaurant. But the attendants were very friendly and we had a wonderful time. I kept imagining the noise came from horses from mediaval times instead of cars!!! We came by car and the parking was very cheap and secure. We would certainly stay again in the hotel and would recommend it, if you do not mind the noise from the street.

    Torcolo Review

    Excellent location a street away from the Piazza Bra and the Roman coliseum. Basic rooms but clean and reasonably priced. Breakfast served outdoors in a roped off area where one can watch the comings and goings of all at a lively intersection.
    Owners know everything about where to go and the best places to eat. One loaned me her personal umbrella instead allowing me to go outside and get wet!

    Torcolo Review

    The Hotel Torcolo is located in a tiny, quiet Piazza of its own about a one minute walk from Piazza Bra and the same from the pedestrian only and upscale Via Mazzini that will lead you to Piazza Erbe, the beating heart of Verona. There are many restaurants nearby including a local, well priced gem directly across the street. The Torcolo's rooms are basic, clean and nice. Breakfast is either optional or required depending on the season and although there is no room service or luggage help, there is an elevator. The heart of the hotel however and a primary reason for making the Torcolo your residence in Verona are the two sweet ladies, Sylvia and Diana who own the hotel and Caterina, who is usually on in the afternoon. They will go far beyond what is expected to suggest things to see and do as well as places to eat. They seem to get real joy and pleasure in assuring a good stay for their guests. Sylvia says that when she retires, she will just sit in Piazza Bra and give advice to tourists. I can believe that.
