We have just returned from 4 nights at the Hotel Torcola.
We have nothing but praise for this hotel. Our room was simple and furnished in traditional Italian style, spotlessly clean and the linen changed frequently. The shower room was functional with a good shower and plenty of hot water. The air conditioning worked well, which was a relief as the weather was extremely hot. The bed was firm but comfortable.
This is a small, family run budget hotel, and is very good value for money in what can be an expensive city. Continental breakfast was served on the pavement outside the hotel and consisted of coffee, bread, rolls, eggs and fruit.
The location of this hotel is wonderful; literally yards from the Piazza Bra and the Arena. It is perfect for the opera and for sightseeing.
But what really makes this hotel exceptional is the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners and staff. As far as we were concerned, nothing was too much trouble. In an world of faceless hotel chains, the Torcola is a little gem.
