Close to the university (Psychology dept., i.e. not the old university buildings)) so stay at Hotel Galileo in case of visits there, and a nice walk from the city centre along the river. 200 meters from bus stop for airport bus. Nice and helpful staff, good breakfast.

Terrible Customer Service. Best Westerns are independently owned and operated so they can make any rules they want, without consistency throughout the chain. Wouldn't stay here if it was free. Do yourself a favor and stay at the Crown Plaza, just down the road.

Highly recommendable hotel right in the center of Padova. It offers normal hotel guestrooms as well as apartments /studios. Breakfast which is delicious is optional. The hotel has a spa that offers various beauty and health treatments as well as an indoor pool; a delightful way to relax after a strenuous day of sightseeing. The 2 studios we occupied were...

I consider this hotel to be good both for short overnight stays or longer ones. The location is not exactly the central one, but there is a spacious open parking lot at no cost. If you are allocated a room facing the river, then a quiet stay with a pleasant view is guaranteed. I agree that the neighborhood is not... More

After having visited parts of Europe with hotels that lacked in certain areas, we must say that the Galileo Padova was a great retreat, offering comfortable rooms, ample bathroom space, friendly service and peace and quiet. If you are looking for a place to stay in the Veneto region of Padova that is clean, friendly and quiet, stay here. The... More

Hotel was very modern and stylish. Rooms were very clean and still in very good order. Neighbourhood wasn't unpleasant but a bit out of town/ industrial'ish - but it didnt feel unsafe, so didnt feel the need to pay extra for parking the car in the underground secure carpark - just used the gated parking at the side for free....

We had booked a studio apartment in the annex building to this hotel, however, it did not state that the annex would be of any differing standard to the hotel as the booking is made as if it is the hotel. The pictures on the website look the same. When we arrived the hotel is undergoing refurbishment and is a... More

I stayed in Hotel Galileo for 3 nights. The hotel was more than perfect for its price. My hotel room was big, cozy, and very clean! It had a small kitchen fully equipped! The parking was free. The city center is about 20 minutes walking, but it's very easy to access the city center! The breakfast was ok and the... More

The hotel is modern, the rooms are spacious and fairy well equiped with flat panel TV (although with only 2 English channels, both news), fridge/mini-bar, and safe, the air conditioning is effective and very quiet, the curtains are very good at keeping out light,...
