A room at the Hotel Torcolo, Verona

The friendliest, prettiest budget hotel in Verona, Italy

Lifelong friends Signoras Silvia and Diana are much of the reason behind the deserving success of this small, comfortable hotel just one peaceful block off the lively Piazza Brà.

Bright and homey, it is inviting for its unfussy but tasteful decor. Each guest room is individually done, one lovely for its wrought-iron bed, another for the intricate parquet floor, another still in 19th-century furnishings.

No. 31 is a country-style sunny top-floor room (the hotel has an elevator) with exposed ceiling beams; nos. 16 (a triple), 18, 21, and 34 are done with original Liberty-style furnishings.

They truly care about your comfort here: Rooms are equipped with orthopedic mattresses on stiff springs, double-paned windows (though it's quiet already), extra air-conditioners on the top floor, and extra-wide single beds.

They even keep different typical national travel tastes in consideration: They accept pets in a nod to Swiss travel habits, have a few rooms with tubs for Japanese, and offer some softer beds for the French.

You can take the rather expensive breakfast outdoors on the small patio if the weather is pleasant, in a breakfast nook, or in your room.
