Crowne Plaza Verona Fiera4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We frequently use Crowne Plaza hotels .... what on earth happened to this one? Other than the receptionist who checked us in, the staff had little local knowledge. The bar staff must have been trained by Basil Fawlty. A tomato juice seemed totally perplexing, as did a Pimms. We were okay as long as we stuck to coke and lemon soda. The bedroom cooling system was bizarre. The fan was controlled by reception, so we either froze or roasted. The breakfasts were dreadful. The scrambled egg tasted synthetic and the mushrooms were slimy. When a large group of conference attendees turned up for breakfast everything fell apart and the food ran out, there was no coffee, no hot water and finding a member of staff was like trying to find hens' teeth. And, by the way, none of their teapots have lids. Weirdly, teapots always arrived with a saucer in place of the lid. What a strange place.
A modern hotel, NOT in central Verona as we were told! But in the outskirts with inadequate shuttle service to the City of Verona. Our bedroom was pleasant enough, but with not a single hook anywhere to hang a towel, other item on! Breakfasts were not good - an understatement- and when the dining room was busy was chaotic with a lack of food, coffee and crockery. In summary, not a well managed hotel, some , not all , helpful staff but none have lical knowledge to help their tourist guests
I have stayed in this hotel before just after it opened and little has changed other than it has got a little tired the B/fast is worse than it was and they charge yr credit card when you book even though y pay what is a crazy rate for not a great Hotel but given they have closed what was the Holiday Inn and as a loyal and point seeking member of IHG I had no other option - I was attending a trade fair and the venue was only round the corner - the beds are comfortable parking is a plenty, but the steam bath and even the shower at the pool area did not work and the sun deck is pretty warn and tatty looking , the staff are so so not the friendly sort but not the worse
We stayed at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Verona during a recent trade fair, good location, only about a 20 min walk each morning to work. The hotel is the usual Crowne Plaza standard, it was buy during our week there as you would expect but not too loud in the evenings!
The hotel is nearby the Verona Fair ground and seems to host a lot of business events and located conveniently close to highway exit. We received a large room. The breakfast is expensive and poor so we avoided it after the first time.
We stayed at Crown Plaza in Verona for one night. The hotel is located 4 km away from the city center. A taxi from the train station is EUR 15. They do not have Uber in Verona. There is no shops, restaurant and anything else near the hotel. The hotel is quite new, and rooms are really nice and clean. The wifi was ok. The breakfast restaurant was not good. It was crowded, noisy and the food was not good. Even to get a cup of coffee, it was a kind of a project.
We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. It's not in central, which is ok for us so it's not so noisy. There is shuttle from hotel to the central, not so many scheduled, but met our needs. Hotel room is clean, comfort bed and pillow, which I think is one of the most important elements for a hotel. All in all, we are satisfied.
Very nice hotel. Stayed here many times. The rooms are really nice and modern. I have been in most of the room types all really nice and especially clean. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is good and very fresh! We had dinner at the hotel restaurant and was impressed regarding the food really good a bit pricey but good .. I recommend this hotel to anyone in the Verona area. Location is good for the fair not too close to the center but they have a free shuttle service back and forth to the center.
The quality of the rooms are great - typical Crowne Plaza. The rooms are quiet and clean. There is enough space (some rooms are quite spacious), and one complete wall of windows is fantastic for light. The staff are helpful, knowledgeable, and quick to respond to any needs. The bartenders were very willing to research and make crazy mixed drinks, which was nice. The location is a bit outside of the city if you are traveling for tourism. They do have a shuttle that runs a few times in the morning and a few times in the early evening. For other times, Taxis are easy to get and not terribly expensive. But for business travelers not wanting to be in the noise and crowds of the city, it is a good location. Wi-fi is free to IHG rewards members (which is free). There is a small, but adequate gym, and a small pool with some good massage jets. There is also a steam room.
Our experience was consistent with other TA reviews. A few minor improvements could have made the stay very memorable, but as it was it was just "OK but pleasant". When we arrived we were not greeted as IHG platinum guests - we did not receive a room upgrade as we did in Salzburg. When we asked about whether our status had been registered for our stay, reception then offered us a welcome drink - but only one (we received a welcome drink each in Salzburg). You have to ask for a second room key. Impressions of the room reflect the fact this is relatively new - about 3 years, so has all modern facilities - even scales to check the consequences of Easter - although toiletries were average quality, no hair conditioner but that could be typical for Italy. Agree with other reviewers that a mirror outside bathroom would be good and it is a bit inconvenient drying your hair over the bidet (short cord on hair dryer) but this is being picky. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and modern - all you could want for. Shower was hot, lots of room - definitely a plus. Of course there is no view as you are in the industrial area (it feels like). So you can imagine our surprise to visit the Byblos Roof top area that just looks over industrial buildings! Seemed like an odd use of space. As other reviews mention - the stay would be more customer friendly if the shuttle bus ran until at least dusk - last one is 7:15 pm and there are only 8 seats so you have to be quick. Our trip in the cab from town centre was 10 euro. No standout service - although fellow in the small bar/restaurant was helpful. So overall - would be great for business travellers - gym looked good as did the spa. For leisure makers it lacked the welcoming you seek when you are on a big driving adventure and excited to visit new locations.
