VERONA hotel recommendations

Any recommendations on B&Bs or hotels to stay in or around VERONA?

How about restaurant recommendations also?

It was difficult to find a "reasonable" hotel in Verona on the web, but I'm sure they are there. We booked two nights at the Hotel Italia, which was just a couple blocks and across the bridge from the Centro. It was perfectly fine, and has parking in the building (you won't need a car unless you do a daytrip to Lake Garda while you're there). They also had a great breakfast room. I'd love to have stayed in the Centro, however! We had a lovely meal on a Sunday night at Trattoria S. Anastasia, Corso S. Anastasia 27, Telephone 045 8009177 We also had a nice time drinking prosecco and watching people in a cafe on Piazza Bra (but ask to see a menu with prices before you sit down -- the next day we simply sat down for lunch at the Gran Cavour and were surprised to see the prices nearly double what we'd paid the night before just a few giant awnings further from the Roman Arena.) Do visit the museum at Castelvecchio.

Hi Delia. Diane gave some great advice. Verona accommodations are always tighter during the opera season in July/August. You didn't mention when you would be going or if you want the city center or have a car & could enjoy a site like Lake Garda. Check out the Verona booking service at www.cav.vr.it or write to them with your particulars at [email protected] Not all Verona hotels are on their list, but it is a good place to start. Good luck!

Delia, you might try searching (on this forum) under Verona and you'll find many hotel and restaurant suggestions.

I recently stayed at the two-star bed and breakfast "Torcolo", a mere 30 yards from the Arena of Verona and half a block behind Piazza Bra, on a quiet narrow street. Very reasonable rates (60 Euros for a single and 99 Euros for a double room, each with private facilities, hair drier, air conditioning, frigobar, room safe, and firm beds). Hotel has an elevator and a restaurant. Very helpful and pleasant personnel. Easy 20 minute walk from main train station (or 5 minutes by bus). Lots of restaurants and cafes nearby.

Many from this forum (including myself) have stayed at the Romeo e Giuletta. It is on a side street just off from the coloseum. Very excellent location. If you are in Verona for only a short time I would recommend staying as near the centro as possible in order not to waste time traveling to and fro.The centro storico is a charming strolling, shopping, restaurant and site seeing district with limited auto traffic.

Just spent 2 nights at the Hotel D'Capuleti in Verona. Good location near the Arena, clean and comfortable, and a large breakfast buffet. Booked on the Best Western site for EU 102 per night, double, including breakfast. The staff was a little brusque, but the Veronese are a bit standoffish anyway (German influence?), unlike most Italians, myself included!
