Stayed one night after a concert in padua .the hotel is a five minute walk from the train station and about a pleasant twenty minute walk to the city centre.
The rooms are comfortable and clean and the reception staff really nice and very helpful.The continental breakfast provided in the morning was fresh with plenty of choice.I would not hesitate to stay here again . Thankyou.

The hotel is located within easy walking distance of the historic sights of Padova, including the Scrovegni Chapel, and the train station for easy access to Venice and Verona. The staff was friendly and helpful, The buffet breakfast, included in the price, was generous and had a great variety of choices. The rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet. Our only problem was that, while we had a no smoking room, smoke from an adjoining room was wafting through the vents in our bathroom. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Me and my girlfriend were there for 4 nights.
We already have been there one year ago and the general impression was good. So we came back.

I can only confirm again that this is a really good place to stay regarding the price they ask.

The rooms are not so big, but the size is average and everything is in the right place.
The rooms are soundproofed, so there is no risk to be annoyed by the street on one side or from the train rails on the other side.
The sound is not completely soundproofed from the connected rooms but it was enough isolated.
We also were A LOT *noisy* when *playing* at every hour of the night/day ;)
But nobody seemed to complain or said anything.
Just curious that once (just once) we smelled a light cigarette smoke even with everything closed. Maybe from someone trying to smoke in the room of the fist floor.

The only thing to care about in the room is that the key is enabling the light. So, don't hope to let you phone or laptop charging in the room while you are not there.
And even if you are there, be sure that you turned on the right wall switch that will enable the different plugs around the room. A little bit annoying but nothing really important.

They also let us to use for free their inside parking (outside there is one public on payment). I guess because we reserved directly from their website, but I'm not sure.

The breakfast is served for a long range of time and it is a lot of variation (I'm usual to make a huge german/english style breakfast). Everything was fine with it.

There is free wi-fi included in the price, and we found no problems with the signal strength (2nd floor). And the TV has satellite channels with (I guess) premium content; but we didn't watch television.

The people at the reception were all kind and caring.
They helped us to park in the night (the placement was not so big), and they printed me my flight boarding pass without problems.
And when we where not going out from our room for the whole morning they phoned us to ask what time was better for us for cleaning the room. Very caring.

Also the area is quite good cause it is really nearby to the station and you can reach the center walking 10/15 minutes.
I didn't noticed anything bad in the area, even being nearby to the station.

I would suggest everyone to go there; you will find what you would expect. And if you are a couple that want to pass a nice time together in the room you can rely on them and on their discretion.

The only two bad points are (but it is really just one):

** I wrote them before and asked them for a room with king size bed, to avoid the common problem of having two divided mattresses. I also wrote it in the reservation's text.
But we got anyway a poor bed with two mattresses that where always separating letting me inside a really uncomfortable dip.
Was really bad trying to sleep together embracing.

** A minor point. There hair drier was defected, and sometimes it just stopped suddenly to work letting us wet. But I solved it quite easily just shaking it a little :P

We will anyway come back there again for sure; the price is really good for the provided service.

PS - the last not is that there is a really good "All you can eat" Sushi restaurant just walking 5 minutes from the Hotel. If you are a couple I really suggest you to go there! :)

Room Tip: Higher is better. If you care about the double bed ask them for a room with mattress that doesn'...

We only stayed one night at this hotel. It was definitely an aging hotel and in a "not so nice" section of town. But it is close (5-10 minute walk) to the train station, which we wanted. Also, we had a great breakfast with lots of fruit, which we appreciated. Also, the price was right. We were able to take the tram from the train station to downtown, so that worked out great. The hotel even sold us tickets which made it much simpler. Our room was spacious, but had a disgusting view from the window. So, we kept the shades closed. Enjoyed the air conditioning, however..

Only spent 1 night here on way to Venice. Was better than expected! Very affordable. Large comfortable room which was quiet even facing the train line. Good airconditioning. Great shower. Breakfast was great too. Easy walk into Padua (5-10mins walk).
Definantly recommend!
Carpark nice and secure.

This hotel is about a 5-10 minute walk from the train station and about 15-20 minutes from the center of Padua. The location isn't exactly gorgeous, but seems quite safe and it's really no big deal given how quickly you can walk to the truly scenic parts of Padua.

The hotel itself is welcoming with modern furnishings. We stayed in a 'single' room with a true double bed because we were traveling with our 7-month-old son and didn't want to worry about him falling between two beds pushed together when he came into bed with us. The only annoying thing was that there was only one water glass and they wouldn't give us another when we asked... not sure if that was a communication glitch, as there were enough towels to go around. It was a compact room, but was fine for our needs. Our room faced the train tracks, and although we could hear the trains, they were certainly well muffled by the double-glazed windows and not a bother.

Breakfast was continental and lovely, with fruit as well as fresh mozzarella and tomatoes.

All in all, I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Padua, and would happily stay here again should we return.

This was a very budget friendly hotel with nice rooms and fabulous breakfast. It is within walking distance of the train station- which was handy to get to Venice. The area is a little suspect, but we had no problems. Even though the train station is close with trains behind the hotel it was very quiet. My only complaint was that the air conditioning wasn't turned on yet - and it was very warm in the room. There were no screens on the window, so besides cooler air, we also had mosquitoes. They had a nice private and secluded patio area that they opened for us to enjoy in the evening. The staff ( all family) were very helpful and friendly and overall this was a nice place to stay.

Room Tip: Not sure I would want a room facing the railroad tracks.
