Nice hotel to stay in, a little out of the tourist spots but they have a free shuttle you can book. Staff were very helpful and the room was clean and modern. Good for a quiet nights sleep and beds were comfy.
We stayed in the hotel for a long weekend,to visit the sights.When we arrived a bit unsure,about the distance from the Center,as we walked the first afternoon.It is a long walk,but the cab service is really quick and are all metered.(no over charging). The main thing i liked was the staff at the front desk,unfortuatally i never got any names,but they where all really helpful,and explaned to us all the details of our journeys we made when we out and about. I do want to Thank a young lad who's name was Emmanualle who worked behind the bar in the evenings,great lad,told us where to go in the evening and recommened lovely places to eat.Really friendly all the time,and always had a smile on his face,as we had him up and down all night getting drinks. The hotel was clean and all the rooms were looked after every morning perfectly. I hope the management get to see this review as would recommend The Crown Plaza all the time.
Although the Hotel is located quite far from the city center, it serves shuttles to central and to the fair ground which was very helpful for the guests to hopping around. Rooms are clean and well maintained. Toilet also clean and in good condition. Breakfast also good.
Stayed here 5 days on last night decided to eat in as we had early start, could not believe how bad the food was. Italy should be best place to eat pasta, I cannot understand how you get spaghetti bolegnese to taste so bad. Lasagne was microwaved to wet inside to be oven cooked. top dollar price never again.
Hotel location is made very clear when you check it out online, so anyone wanting a city central hotel should seek an alternative and not criticise after they arrive. The hotel is very modern, clean with great facilities, the staff are all helpful and courteous. Bedrooms have large comfortable beds (nicest pillows I`ve ever had) spacious modern bathroom with large shower and dove/lux accessories and soft fluffy towels. Good effective air conditioning and safe included to store valuables. Note the shuttle bus times are limited and the very helpful driver drops off and picks up at train/ bus terminal and also the city centre near arena (you need to book a seat) Local bus and taxi also plentiful. lovely hotel in beautiful city
This hotel is located in an industrial area of Verona. To get to the historic city center, you must take a taxi. The Hotel does have a free shuttle to the city center, but it does not run very often and you must sign up for the ride. Walking in the area of the hotel after dark could be a problem. There are no readily visible restaurants in walking distance of the hotel; it is not a walking neighborhood, so we did not try to find restaurants. The hotel staff is very nice and helpful. The room was OK, except for the bathroom. There was no place to hang up a towel after your shower.
Rooms are clean and staff is solid. The split bed thing needs to go if you are sleeping as a couple. This is not a queen this is a twin set where one of you falls through the cracks. I loved the staff they do the best with the facility they have but the facility wreaks of economic corner cutting. Just upgrade to 21st century band width and would resolve a lot and add a person in the lobby bar so they are available. The upstairs terrace needs upgrading and could be really cool. The location is a good 20 minute ugly walk to the fair so be prepared for that and a 20 min taxi to town every time you want to go. The caffe restaurant next door has great wifi and solid food expect to spend a lot of time there. Nice folks really solved my work flow but lucky I had my own mifi for solid internet needs because the hotel band width is abysmal. Ok for emails but add any bulk and forget about it.
This hotel is in an industrial part of Verona. If you are attending an event at the Veronafiere you are better off staying in the old part of town and enjoying Verona/Italy and walking or catching a taxi. The Crowne Plaza is a 15 min walk through a red light area and the Hotel is nothing special, just a chain hotel that could be anywhere in the world. Shame to waste time in Italy in a place such as this.
First of all this hotel is in the middle of an area best avoided at night. There is no restaurant nearby meaning that the in-house restaurant is way-way overpriced. I had to change rooms two times as different things did not work; first the a/c and after that was fixed I was terrorized by the sun shades going up and down uncommanded in the middle of the night. The extremly loud music of a function taking place in the ballroom interfered with the aim of getting sleep as well. Breakfast is a sheer catastrophe, I do not remember a breakfast buffet as scanty as that in a renowned chain hotel. The second point I allocated is for the night clerck only who tackled the problems with my various rooms in a very straightforward and unbureaucratic way. Last but not least they didn't honor my IHG status nor did I receive the points for my stay but I was invited to review this hotel by IHG for their Web-side. Needless to say that this review was never published...
Awful setting, looks like an industrial estate set on the outskirts of Verona about 2 miles from the centre. Brand new and very contemporary (not my sort of place really - I like old Italian grandeur) BUT has a LOT of PLUS points. Incredibly good and well trained, knowledgeable staff. Serena on reception dealt with our arrival in a very kind and professional manner. We were whinging that we were so far from the centre and the initial impression was of a very "cold" building - it happened to be about 35c outside..! Very sympathetically she asked if she could help to improve things for us and hopefully change our opinion. She succeeded and excelled in every way. Travelling with a friend (platonic) two mature women sharing a twin room. Room very pleasant with incredibly efficient air conditioning. Beds wonderfully comfortable, top quality bedlinen, towels, bathrobes and slippers. Not over keen on the own brand toiletries but always take my own anyway. Didn't have breakfast but from what we saw it was very good. Preferred to go into Verona centre. Hotel provides a shuttle service into the city centre - an absolute godsend. You MUST BOOK YOUR SEAT IN ADVANCE - it only seats eight people. It struck me that this is more of a corporate style hotel for business meetings, conventions and travel. Very close to the airport. There seems to be a lot of building going on so maybe it's an up and coming area. Piazza Bra and Piazza Erbe lots of cafés serving continental style breakfast with egg dishes e.g. omelettes etc. All outdoors and no air-con. Fans galore but still unbearably hot approaching noon and beyond. Word of advice NEVER go to Verona in August - heat can be unbearable. We were visiting for the Opera Festival at The Verona Arena. Tickets were given to us so we had no choice about timing. The hotel was refreshing after the noise & bustle of central Verona - a taxi back to hotel around 10-12 Euros. Opera lovers - The Arena is a must. BUT, push the boat out and spend the extra for seats in "the stalls" on the "floor" of the Arena unless you are a mountain goat...!
