The hotel has an excellent, very central location, but I am afraid this is all I can recommend about it. We traveled in March and we froze in the rooms, there was no heating, although we asked the reception for it. The bathroom was old, not renovated, smelly and in a bad condition.

The room was , comfortable, a reasonable size with a clean functional ensuite, although there was some traffic noise in the morning from the square outside.Breakfast was a simple buffet with both savory and sweet foods offered and the coffee was good.

I'm with my wife and young daughter were driving on the highway on vacation in Richone. It was about 8:00 pm and we decided to stay in Padova. Been looking for a WI FI (in Italy a big problem, because even at McDonald WI FI closed security code). Finally we found a free internet and booked a double room at... More

Stayed here for six nights in june 2013. The location of the hotel was great, just a short walk from the autobus which took you into town/to the station five mins away. The rooms were cleaned everyday with fresh towels provided each time. Breakfast was simple but for the money what you would expect. the best thing about this hotel... More

Small unpretentious albergo, located in a quiet street just around the corner from beautiful Prato della Valle. The service here was amazing; the young couple who run this hotel simply couldn't have been more helpful! Al Giardinetto is conveniently situated for the Botanic Gardens, the Basilica (Santo Antonio) and excellent local restaurants. Moreover, a short bus ride brings you to... More

Hotel Giardinetto has a good location and a nice breakfast. However, the rooms are very old and bathroom is not very inviting. Staff was nice but could not compensate the really bad rooms. Attractions are reachable by foot or light rail system (very comfortable).

Not a luxurious hotel but very pleasant, clean and quiet, with most pleasant staff. Very good value for your money. The location, just on Prato dela vale, could not be better if you want to make some shopping in the huge Sunday market.

My girlfriend studied in Padua for 6 months so we have selected this hotel because of the good location. Like stated before the owners are really nice, superb service! Internet was a good plus and the breakfast is simple but very pleasant.

The owner was really nice, the service was awesome. The breakfast was very simple but absolutely delicious. I seriously don't know what the people complaining about the noisy elevator is complaining about. My room was in front of the elevator, and while it is indeed very noisy, i slept like a baby. All in all, excellent stay for a two... More
