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

We stayed at Hotel Donatello in Padova unexpectedly after a mixup with our reservation at another hotel. One will immediately view the Basilica Sant'Antonio once stepping out of the hotel. The advantage of the hotel is that it is a pleasant walking distance to Prato Della Valle , Palazzo Della Ragione, and the lively Piazza dei Signori. Although the hotel's... More

We love Padua and more so after our recent stay in Hotel Donatello.Superb location,a cosy traditional style hotel a good example of warm Italian hospitality. Charming, professional but friendly and helpful staff all spoke English. Enjoyed the buffet breakfast. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable as was the ensuite bathroom.

Padova's train station and immediate location does not exactly fill the traveler with confidence upon arrival. However, after a moderate walk (perhaps try a taxi to get closer and reduce walking time) you find the hotel in a truly excellent location, right in the middle of Padova and all its restaurants, cafes and squares. Staff were equally excellent, very friendly... More

Didn't plan to stay in this hotel on my recent trip to Padova, but it is the area where I usually do stay, so I was happy to try it out. The room was rather small, and the bathroom even smaller (no tub, only a shower), and the decor was fairly outdated, but it did have some elements in its... More

The hotel Donatello is in a very central location. The staff is friendly and the rooms are good. We asked for a room in the back to be away from the noisy square. Breakfast is ok. Quality to price ratio is good. However, this is not a 4 star hotel and the hotel would need some renovation.

Old fashioned, but pleasantly so. Very central location, everywhere seems to be in walking distance. Four star is pushing things a bit here however and breakfast is rather limited. Parking is a real plus and there is no charge - but this is not a modern garage and is best managed with a small Italian car.

Hotel was clean and comfortable. the staff was very helpful in arranging transportation and directions. When a Taxi was requested it appeared in two minutes at the latest. Near to all sights in the old town. the hotel does remind me of a Europe of the past. If you want a more modern appearance stay elsewhere. If you want good... More
