“disgusting”
Reviewed 30 September 2010

I booked a room for one person for 2 nights (100 euro per night). The room was disappointingly small, with an even smaller bathroom. I think the room was 2.80 x 2.50 meter, and a bathroom of 1 x 1 meter. I do understand that rooms for one person are smaller, but this was really the smallest room I ever slept in. But the worst of all was the awfull smell inside the room which did not disappear by leaving the windows open.
After this I went to Padua, and stayed in Hotel Belludi in Padua (two stars designhotel, 121 euro per night), what felt like heaven after my horrible stay in Hotel Scalzi.
The only really good thing in hotel scalzi is the very helpfull staff.

We spent two nights at Hotel Scalzi. Since we were arriving by train, this was a perfect location, midway between the station and the city centre. We arrived at 8.30 am off the overnight train, 3 hours before check in time, and found the staff really helpful giving us a vacant room straight away. Later we found them very helpful again as we had a problem with some train tickets and they let us use the internet on the desk. Breakfast was enjoyable, and the room was fine. We loved Verona, just a 15 minute walk from the hotel to Piazza Bra and the Arena.

i spent 5 nights in the Hotel Scalzi in August. the hotel is ideally situated approx 10 mins walk to the station and 10 mins to Piazza Bra. it was clean, the staff were friendly - and spoke English- and breakfast ,by Italian standards was plentiful. Tea and coffee were made to order! My room would have been a little small if there were two of us but for one it was fine. It had a very nice shower room and proper towels! (not the usual Italian towels that resemble kitchen towel!) Worth staying in and yes i would go back to it again.

This hotel had mixed reviews but we went ahead after several better recommended options came back full. We had two rooms. Both were incredibly small and dark and although the hotel assured us they were just across the courtyard, to reach each we had to walk miles through a labyrinth of corridors in two different directions. Opening the courtyard door in our room was impossible anyway because the bed was in the way. In fact with two people and two suitcases in the room it was almost impossible to move around. We had booked months in advance and we did get a quick glance into some other rooms which looked bigger and a lot brighter than our broom closet so are not sure why we got the ones we did. To be fair the rooms are very trendy and pretty well kept. On the flip side our bed was of the type you would usually use as a spare rollaway and felt like it. The breakfast was extraordinarily average. We didn't bother on day 2. The staff are very watchful - to the extent that as we walked through reception on checkout day nearly two hours prior to departure we were called back so they could remind us what time we had to leave.
The location is fine. It is a brisk 15 minute walk to the opera and the buzz of the old part of the town. We left this hotel feeling that of all the places we stayed on our four week trip this was the worst value and the least relaxed and welcoming.

Reviewed 16 July 2010

We stayed here for two nights to see an opera n the arena. It's a short walk form the train station but at the edge of the old city proper. The outside is a dowdy yellow, but inside it varied from old 'continental' style to ultra modern glass and bare new wood in our split level room, with frosted glass separating the modern bathroom from the living area and bare timber beams and timber ceiling on the mezzanine sleeping area. The staff were lovely and friendly, they let us use the reception computer and printer to print our boarding pass for our return flight.

Breakfast was fine, a selection of fruit, cold meats/cheese and pastries and coffee made to order.

It was about 7mins to Castelveccio and a teeny bit longer to the Arena or Piazza Bra.

We'd aircon in our room which was a lifesaver as it was in the mid 30's when we visited.

Reviewed 15 October 2009

Proximity to the Verona train station was more of an issue for us as we were only staying one night and had a morning train to catch. But I really liked this hotel inside, for its lack of IKEA-like furniture and cookie-cutter styling. We didn't find the evening walk from the centre of the town too ominous, but perhaps in the cold of winter or heat of summer it might be considered a disadvantage. Breakfast was simple, but we were already accustomed to that after two nights in Venice. We paid 90 Euro - the rate advertised on the hotel's own website and were happy with that. I gather you pay more for hotel rooms in Verona during the opera season.
