My mother and I stayed here for two nights before going on to Venice. It’s well placed for visiting local attractions in Verona. Immediately in front of the hotel is a big river and then in front that the motorway, however we heard no noise from this. The room was clean and spacious. The staff were happy to help with any queries. Breakfast was plentiful and there was a good selection, the dining room is lovely and well presented. As we were traveling by train, the hotel was ideally situated close to the station, less than a 10 minute walk. To get into the centre you have to navigate your way through some busy roads and it’s about a 10/15 minute walk.

The hotel is very 80ies style, but in good condition and well maintained. Rooms are large, beds on the harder side. The location is a bit off - if you dont mind the ugly view, try to get a room to the more quite back - but at least convenient to arrive and leave. In a 15 min walk you‘re at the Arena and some ok restaurants are on the way. Parking is convenient and 15€ per night. Breakfast was nice and with a good choice. Reception was helpful and fixed a small complaint from us in a very customer centric manner. Thank you.

We stayed here for a night on a recent trip by train. The hotel is conveniently close to the station, just outside the Porta Nuova, and about 15 minutes walk from the Arena. The rooms are spacious and modern, breakfast was very good, and the staff were helpful.

Originally planned to stay at the hotel for a week, unfortunately due to snow closing the airport I contacted the hotel by email to advise of our late arrival and they were very helpful and quick with responding. Once we arrived the hotel had a slightly strange car park set up and finding the way to entrance by avoiding the steep ramps proved a little tricky. Once in the lobby it was very impressive and had an ‘Italian’ style about it. All staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is quite large with many rooms, the one we stayed in was a classic room which was clean and tidy, if a little tired and in need of an upgrade - room was nicely serviced daily but beds a little firm for our liking but overall comfortable. Breakfast had a large variety of continental choices in an impressive dining area. Staff again very polite and helpful with nothing too much trouble. Location was ok, just outside the centre which is probably why such good value. Just that the hotel looks nice inside but area it’s in is a little run down - with a 10/15 minute walk to the train station or 20/25 min walk to the main Piazza Bra area but some busy roads on the way. Overall verdict good value, great staff clean hotel, not really sure it’s a 4* - but would return in in Verona. Thank you Hotel Leon D’Oro 👍

Had pretty high expectations of this place and was well recommended. Lived up to and exceeded expectations.Our room was large and comfortable and a fairly well appointed mini bar. View was OK but would have been better on opposite side of the building. Breakfast each day was great, plentiful and excellent quality with a terrific variety. All hotel staff were helpful and polite.We sat at the bar a couple of nights and have to say the barman Andrian was about the most professional barman I have met anywhere...his cocktails were great, service exceptional and had a varied knowledge and great to have a conversation with. Offered some great advice. Look forward to going back and sampling a few more of those drinks....Stephen and Annie

Under 10 minutes walk from the railway station and about 15 minutes to the centre of town and all attractions, the hotel was value for money. The rooms were spacious and came equiped with everything needed. Good selection at breakfast and good bar and lounge area. Staff were efficient but could be a little friendlier.

The good points are It's a 10-15 minute walk from railway station Rooms are clean Cooked breakfast. The bad points. The 10-15 minute walk away from station involves busy roads and a dirty subway. The shower is hot, but goes in every direction apart from where you want. The scrambled egg was tasteless and Luke warm, at best. To go to attractions you have to navigate the busy roads again. No tea or coffee facilities in the room. No heated towel rail. If you're showering twice a day in January the towel needs drying. Pillows are not great. I will not be returning.

Great Hotel. No complaints. Great location we could walk to wherever we wanted. Lovely reception. Lovely beds and great bathroom. I didn't find it dated at all and found it imteresting and i loved its position next to the water and we had alovely dinner there. The staff were all lovely and helpful.

the receptionists in this hotel are the rudest you'll encountered. i walked in about 2pm to check in. reception area was empty except for 1 lady behind the counter. i walked to said hello. she said "one second!" she was inputting a stack of paper into the computer. i waited a few minutes until she finished. the room is not ready. i asked if i could drop my bag. she said it would be better if i could just wait 10 minutes the room will be ready. i sat down next to the reception. 20 minutes later i walk up to her and asked if my room is ready. just then an italian couple walked up. they talked in italian. noticed she didn't say 1 second. another 5 minutes they were done. it was obvious that the room had been ready but she didn't bother calling me. i thought her tone and choice of words were rude but maybe it was because english was not her first language. when i checked out the same lady was behind the counter. i walked up and the first thing she said to me was "1 second". then she told me to go around to another computer terminal. just then another receptionist opened up and she helped me. she said 2 euros city tax. as i was reaching into my pocket for the money. she repeated louder "2 euros city tax do you understand"? yes i understand you perfectly! i was just reaching for the money. i travel a lot all around the world but i will remember this as one of the weirdest places. no surprised that it happened in Italy. they don't seem to like foreigners. the hotel is in a strange area next to the trains. breakfast food was terrible. i recommend spending a few extra euros. there are better choices in Verona.

First, you need to find this hotel from the railway station. It’s a bit disconcerting when you’re faced with several lanes of traffic which you’re trying to cross to get to the hotel. However you need to cross the road at the Esso petrol station (as mentioned in a previous review) and you will arrive at this magnificent hotel with its elegant decor. The staff are so professional- in particular I’d like to mention Andrian, the Moldovan waiter who speaks impeccable English and who spent a long time advising us on the best walking route to take in all the best sights in Verona. We took his advice and fitted in everything in one day. Andrian takes great pride in his job- he’s a real asset to the hotel. We also received excellent service from Frederico and Tracey in the restaurant. The breakfast is excellent - well worth the money. Better directions are needed to the hotel - but once you get there you’ll enjoy the opera-themed decor, the attentive service and the feeling that you’re in a hotel that’s got individual style.
