I believe this is my first review on Trip Advisor and was motivated to do so because I had a most fabulous experience at Hotel Donatello. I stayed there for two weeks. The hotel staff were superior in friendliness and helpfulness as well as in competency and efficiency in responses to requests for matters related to the room. I loved... More

The bed is really hard like a stone as well as pillows. My back hurt after one night. And I would say I am not a picky one. Curtains can not be closed fully on the window. I used my hair pins to fix them. Personal was nice and location is great. No other pluses found

The hotel is one of the oldest hotels in Padua centrally located by the main cathedral. The have own closed parking and good breakfast. When we were there roadworks was in progress to upgrade the pedestrian area outside the hotel, so now it should be fine

This hotel is situated in a prime position opposite the Basilica. There is secure parking on-site, which is a big plus in the area where parking is at a premium. The staff were affable and helpful (mainly), although the receptionist on our morning of departure was very stressed (and let it be shown) because she was on her own and... More

We stayed here in April 2015. The property is very nicely decorated, across from the Basilica of San Antonio. The staff was very accommodating of our request to move from a room with a tub to one with a shower. The room and bath were spacious and comfortable. Very quiet, too. The breakfast buffet was very nice. We also enjoyed... More

Situated opposite the Basilica of St Antonio, with a superb view from my window. Hotel old, some furnishings faded, but made up for by excellent service. Fresh linen and towels daily, and every cup of breakfast coffee freshly made. However, with a small lift unable to take an occupied wheelchair, and long corridors with occasional steps unfortunately does not make... More

This hotel is well located in the historic district overlooking the Cathedral del Santo and near the Orto Botanico and the one tour bus of the city. The staff is quite helpful and the services are adequate. The hotel has a computer for guests' use but it hasn't been updated in several years so the speed is quite slow and... More

I stayed for a night in April The hotel is somewhat sprawling but very comfortable and we requested and got a room overlooking the Basilica del Santo, The breakfast was good. There is restaurant in front of the hotel which is not actually run by the hotel. We ate a decent meal there-anything to avoid the tomato-infused cardboard the Italians... More
