Located just across from the large Piazza fronting the central Padova Train Station, 4-star Hotel Grand’Italia was the best location for this early-June train traveler. Why take a taxi or pull your bags along to someplace else when you have all the comforts, amenities and conveniences just a few minutes from the train you’ll be taking at the end of your Padua stay? My large single room located on the piazza facing side, had space to use the desk and sit at the coffee table, and still easily could fit a double bed. The large 9x9 foot bathroom had a shower, heated (winter) towel rack, bidet, toilet, good mirror lighting and a makeup mirror, an often missing hotel feature. Besides A/C, stocked refrigerator (at reasonable prices), bedside controls, full-length mirror, free wi-fi, the safe was large enough to hold my 12-inch netbook. Room access was by placing an electronic key up to a keypad. Even with a McDonalds next door and trams along the Corso del Popolo, the room was very quiet during my stay. Housekeeping was impeccable. My low “shoulder-season” rate included daily complimentary breakfast with meats, cheeses, fruits, an array of pastries, juices, yogurts and real coffees and cappuccinos made by the staff, not those machine ones. Since all of the main sites of Padua are within its historic center. I just walked outside the Hotel Grand’Italia’s front door and onto the trams and buses to use the Padova card I purchased before leaving the US to visit the City. I plan to return to Padua to see more of its sites and definitely will again choose Hotel Grand’Italia and its friendly staff.
