“amazing for a 2-star hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

The Belludi 37 is a fascinating study in contradictions. The personnel is 5-star, from the breakfast servers to the front desk . Some of the amenities (the espresso machine in the room, the complimentary goodies in the fridge, the complimentary bottle of Prosecco) are 5-star. The location is perfect, within easy walking distance of the inner city. Our room was large and quiet. Internet was flawless and the flat screen TV worked perfectly--except when they were moving the antenna (although Italian TV has little to offer). Parking is available, but tricky. Make sure you reserve a spot. If you do, you might find your rental scrunched in beside a new Ferrari. But, don't worry, the truly fantastic personnel will move your car for you and miraculously keep it--and the Ferrari--intact. All of that said, the physical facilities are 2-star. Our bathroom was small and rather primitive. The walls needed a coat of paint. The shutters on the windows seemed almost authentically medieval. Bottom line, it's an old building that definitely needs some work. But, within hours the personnel and the amenities will make you think you are in a 4-star hotel. It isn't cheap, but it would unquestionably be our first choice for future trips to Padua.

Room Tip: our first floor room on the via Belludi was absolutely quiet.

5 star service from a boutique and perfectly positioned hotel. Have already recommended to colleagues.
All the members of staff were very friendly and hospitable. The breakfast was lovely. Having complimentary soft drinks in the Mini bar was very welcome. I would highly recommend.

Once again tripadvisor reviewers led us to a delightful property. Numbering of buildings was a tad confusing, but we found the hotel after taking the bus from the train station and following the directions. The staff was most gracious. Offering us bottles of water was a nice touch. The room was clean and quiet. The breakfast was very good and was served in a room full of sunlight.

Room Tip: In close walking distance from the hotel there is park lined with statues. At one corner there is a...

We stayed at this lovely small hotel for only one night, and when we left we were very sorry that we had not planned to stay longer. As noted above, this hotel is absolutely a gem. The best part was the staff, headed in a marvelous fashion by the owner, Andrea. In a country that boasts many sympatico proprietors, she stands with the very best: beautiful, charming, kind, always willing to help above and beyond what is required or even hinted at. The hotel itself is a beautiful rehabilitation of an older building, completely re-done inside to contain all the modern conveniences desired and many wonderful decorative touches. The location is good, about a block away from San Antonio with some rooms having a great view of the church. Special mention must be made of the excellent included breakfast, with many delicious items including eggs made to order.

All-in-all, a marvelous place to stay when visiting Padua. I am planning to return to Padua again next year just so that I can stay in this hotel again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony or view.

While in Europe we stayed at four hotels and they were all excellent, but Belludi 37 is the one with the Wow! factor. From the moment we entered, hot and weary after walking with our suitcases from the train station, to our departure four days later, we felt very special. On arrival we were offered a choice of drinks (gratis). Our room had a table and chairs and a proper coffee maker. The breakfast was outstanding, and nothing was too much trouble for the English-speaking staff. We would recommend this wonderful place to anyone travelling to Italy.

Room Tip: We had a 'comfort' double room and it was very spacious, with table and chairs and a couch.

First, the most outstanding thing about this hotel was the service. I was totally charmed and well assisted by the staff. First night was in a rather expensive room with a view of the Basilica of Saint Anthony. Although I liked the room, there was traffic noise from the street below. The next day they switched me to a room at the back of the hotel - the view was over a side street, nothing much, but it was very quiet. The room was not as spacious but still perfectly comfortable. They have designed interesting little spaces in the hotel, like a mezzanine lounge. They will give you espresso and water (and probably other drinks) at any time in the lobby and the breakfast spread is terrific, even featuring eggs cooked to your preference. I did think that the price was a little steep and the location is convenient for Saint Anthony's but a bit of a hike for most of the sites in Padua.

Room Tip: Get a room on the side street side of the building - much quieter.

Excellent stay at Belludi 37. Great hospitality, front desk very helpful and friendly breakfast with options for eggs in the morning. Excellent location. Wonderful surprise on last night with small gifts. Couldn't ask for more for a short break.
