The staff could not have been more helpful when we had an issue with our dog. They were very friendly and welcoming and spoke great English. The family room for 4 was spacious and nicely decorated. I would recommend this hotel. The location is some way out of Verona. We had a car so this was fine. I don't know about public transport options. It is close to the airport however.
The hotel is only 5 minutes from Verona Airport in the small village of Dossobuono and was easy enough to find and parking and entrance are around the back just shortly after the hotel. The reception area is spacious and staff are friendly and helpful. There isn’t much to do in Dossobuono, but eat at the very local Italian 100m along on the right – Paolo – and that’s about it. The rooms are functional – Spartan and basic, but they do the job for an overnight stop and the rooms are quiet and well heated. Breakfast was pretty basic and the restaurant area more like a canteen, but again, it did the job. I’d recommend this hotel simply for overnight stops before/after travel from VRN.
We decided to stay in Dossobuono on our last night in Verona as it was close the airport and we had a flight early in the morning. Dossobuono is clearly a local place rather than tourist, but this only added charm to the town. It was the friendliest place in Verona that we had experienced. We arrived at Hotel Gattopardo earlier than check-in, but the lady at the reception desk had no problems with us leaving our luggage there and told us our room would be ready within half an hour (still earlier than check-in). We were planning on spending the day at Desenzano so we didn’t need the room until late afternoon. The train station is approx a five minute walk from the hotel and about ten minutes away from a small supermarket, or fifteen if you want a big supermarket. The train station is very quiet and most trips will involve having to change at Porta Nuova station. There’s no public transport other than taxi’s after 8pm, so ensure you plan ahead if you are hoping to spend the evening anywhere other than Dossobuono. We attended a Bon Iver gig at Castello Scaligero in Villafranca which finished at around 11:30pm. We spent three hours finding and waiting for a taxi as there is no transport. The hotel room was great, very clean and spacious, nicely decorated. There is an airport shuttle that the reception staff will book for you if they ask. The breakfast at the hotel was lovely, endless options. The coffee and juice was good too. Thanks for everything! …
We've booked this nice hotel at August, 2. Today November, 29 (2018) I've received booking cancellation without any comments. 4 months hotel thought over our visit. If the hotel consider to be normal such situation with its guests 1 is to high rate for it.
Extremely clean hotel - good location Room a good size and couldn’t fault it fresh breakfast with a good selection Staff very pleasant and helpful - always ready to help Good location minutes from the airport definitely recommend
