Accomodation hints in Verona

Hi all,

now that Verona is confirmed I am happy to give you some suggestions for Hotels or Bed & Breakfast in Verona.

BOOK AS SOON AS POSSIBILE a big FAIR MARMOMACC is starting on 26th september and the FAIR rates are due from 25th September and normally the city is sold out from that day.

So try yourself through internet (I asked for rates but due to the fair I did not get them for the necessary period, inlc 25th)) .
http://www.cittadiverona.it/ospitalita/ ... hotel.html
or
http://hotel.italiaabc.it/verona.html
or
http://www.hotel-association.com/verona.htm

If you do not find a Hotel in the City try outside like :

Borghetti Hotel Parona
http://www.hotelborghetti.com/it/location.htm good bus connection there is one night bus every hour until ca 1 am and the taxi fare is not too expensive beeing part of Verona

San Vito Hotel - Negrar http://www.hotel-sanvito.com/

Hotel Gran Can Pedemonte
http://www.hotelgrancan.it/albergo.cfm; this is particular, it is a social project Hotel they have also social workers and in a wing of the hotel is a appartment with a comunity for people with "mental problems " to be inserted in daily life, the hotel does usually organize also many concerts and has biological food - it is 7 km from Verona city - but good prices and people said it is nice, and busses until 20.00 h ca. (later only taxi service)

in Verona town:
The Hotel GIBERTI gave us "special "rates, but until only 24th - on 25th they charge a lot more (350 Euro for the double room), so or one goes outside Verona or pay so much :(
145 Euro double room
105 Euro single room
Offer:
€ 105,00 a singola
€ 145,00 a doppia
tariffe a camera a notte in B&B
per la notte del 24-9-2012 invece, causa fiera del marmo, la migliore tariffa da proporre sarebbe di
€ 350,00 a notte in camera doppia
(rate for Cohen Concert guest -please say this if you book ) - but I think it is not nice at all not offering us the 25th :-( at a compromise rate.....so it is up to you.


Hotel Italia is also OK , good to walk to the centre 15 minutes, but on a very traffic road

Hotel San Marco (not a nice position,it is on a main road, but possibily to walk to the centre) and the Hotel is OK

Hotel Borghetti, in Parona it is not in the center, but in the first part of Valpolicella belongs still to Verona town.

Outside in the south part of Verona it might be easier to find rooms.
First try in the links I indicated , if there are NO ROOMS, let me know and I try to find out more hotels outside Verona like :
big ones in the south are Sudpoint Hotel, TRYP Hotel

or try some Bed & Breakfast

GOOD LUCK
Andrea

Thanks for your accommodation hints Andrea. I spent a lot of time on Friday and again yesterday trying to find a hotel in Verona at a reasonable price without much luck. In the end I booked the Hotel Verona on Corso Porta Nuova which was reasonable and looks within walking distance of the Arena and other tourist sites. Do you know anything about it? Is it OK? I am a little suspicious because it is still available and still quite cheap!

We suppose the cheapest accommodation will be the campsite Castel San Pietro. From there you have beautiful views on the city and it's an easy walk to the Arena.
When we we were there it was calm and the staff was very friendly.
We give you the link: http://www.campingcastelsanpietro.com

Have an exciting concert in september!

mabeanie - I always look at Tripadvisor when I'm seeking hotels anywhere - looks like your hotel is OK. The last few comments are all positive, and it sems likely that the hotel has been spruced up recently.

I have flights booked from Manchester UK with Monarch arriving in Verona on Sunday 23 September and leaving on the evening of Wednesday 26th.
Single room already booked at the B and B Rigolleto which seems close to the centre of Verona and the Arena.

Looking forward to 3 days away, a wonderful concert and maybe a day trip by train to Venice on Monday.

Just a bit worried about coping with an Italian website to buy a concert ticket :?

Thanks for your thoughts on Hotel Verona Andrea. I did check the ratings on booking.com and Tripadvisor but, as I said before, I was suspicious that it was still available and at a good price (c €100 / night for a double room).

I haven't booked my flights yet but I am planning to arrive in Verona on Sept 24, leaving after the concert on Sept 26. I am hoping that we will have the chance to meet up and socialise as we did in Florence.

Wendy

PS For anyone flying to Verona from London, BA (from LGW) appear to be cheaper than either Ryanair or Easyjet and you get an assigned seat and free baggage allowance!

Dear all
Regina and me are planning to arrive from Munich in Verona on Tuesday/day of concert in the early afternoon by train, leaving Verona the next day in the late afternoon.
Booked a small B&B, 100€ the double (now full, no use in naming it).
Plans also for Gent 12.8., Berlin, and Paris(though there the price level is to discuss again).
Looking forward to see a lot of you there.
And special thanks to Jarkko, like always!
Good luck with bookings,
Harald
