Stayed 2 nights at this hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, comfortable and well serviced. The location could not be better, close to attractions and restaurants. The buffet breakfast was a great way to start the day.

Although this hotel was in a wonderful location on the Piazza del Santo immediately opposite the shrine to St Anthony .It was unfortunately very tied and would benefit from a clean up and make over. Although the rooms were quite the bathrooms were old fashioned and the decor reminiscent of the 60's. Fortunately every where was spotlessly clean and complimentary... More

The pro's: -I liked the lady who was at the reception when we arrived, it was a short hair blonde lady who was the best! She helped me to get in the parking lot and she always smiled. - The parking of the hotel is large enough for any car you may have ( I had a SUV) but you... More

Like Montes Pension, this hotel is also in a great location. Across the square is the Basilica St. Antonio and many older structures.Rooms are well maintained, good breakfast to start the day many things to see. We stayed 3 nights could have stayed 3 more easily.

Very good position but what a depressing hotel. They really need to brighten it up. We left as it was too depressing and came to Vincenzo instead. As I said it is very good position but not very nice. The staff very polite.

We have never stayed in such an appalling hotel. The air conditioning is like being in a tractor shed. The shower is little more than a dribble. The staff are less than helpful and one loses one's nerve about asking for help. The wifi did not work and one almost get the impression that it is our fault and stupidity... More

Located in the old town of Padua in front of the Basilica di San Antonio a real good address to explore this city of saints and scientists! The reception speaks english, a real good coffea is served for breakfast!

The location of this hotel may make it a challenge to find but we had no problem with our sat nav. Take the advice not to book parking unless driving a small car, we got into the underground parking but needed a little help to get out.That said the staff were VERY helpful.To be able to look across an Italian...

I stayed at the Donatello with my 3 sisters in March this year. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All the staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms, though a little dated, were spotlessly clean and comfortable. Breakfast were varied and tasty. The Donatello is well positioned in the historical centre of Padua We took a bus from Marco... More

This was a first class hotel in the very best part of town. The staff was warm, friendly, and spoke perfect English. They even helped me with my not so great Italian. The room was spotlessly clean, more spacious than usual for European hotels, and ours overlooked the basilica, so beautiful. Breakfast was abundant, fresh, and diverse. It is a... More
