“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

I stayed here with a group of friends in June and we really enjoyed our stay. We had a spacious triple room, modern and clean with air conditioning. This is a big bright modern hotel and although it is located outside the city centre it is only a few minutes by bus and the bus stops right outside the hotel. We walked back to the hotel from the city centre in half an hour. The breakfast was very well laid out and there was plenty of choice. We ate in the restaurant one evening and the food was nice. I thought this hotel was very good value for money, and would consider using it as a base for visiting Venice (15 mins by train from Padua) and the surrounding area in the future.

This Hotel is definitely recommended!. The location is very good and convenient, the rooms are quite large and comfortable. Service at the front desk is great. One of the best things is the restaurant nearby, the food is great! Also, parking spaces and bar with some snacks. Breakfast is sufficient. Only inconveniences are the poor Wi-Fi (at least on 6th floor were I stayed) and small fitness area. Overall, it is definitely a great option on Padova!

Room Tip: Rooms on upper floors have lower Wi-Fi signal

I enjoyed almost everything about this hotel. The price was decent, the room was very spacious
(for example, as compared to the nearby Best Western Biri where for a similar price, the room was 1/2 the size). The breakfast was plentiful and varied; service was friendly. The bartender was
pleasant and let me order food (sandwiches) though it was almost closing time. Parking is free
and convenient. The gym is a little strange -- it's in the basement but it's clean and functional.
There were, however, no towels and no water; this is something the management could provide.
There is a nice indoor pool and spa but I didn't get a chance to use either. Next time!

The hotel is not in the center but it takes only about 15 mins or so to get there.
It is very conveniently located for accessing the university (at least the part I visited).
The front desk personnel were courteous and helpful.

Would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: I stayed in the street-facing room but wasn't bothered by noise.

This hotel has excellent priced, fairly well appointed apartments which include a small kitchen (microwave, sink, counter, counter for eating and stove -- no oven). The kitchen is only stocked with dishes and the like if one pays extra for the stay, which for us was quite worth it as we wanted to make our own food. The eating area is a high counter with stools, which is not very comfortable, and a small table with chairs would be better.

Front desk staff very helpful and friendly and the breakfast was excellent, with excellent staff, though perhaps not enough staff -- they were always trying to do too many things at once.

Free parking lot was always available and a nice surprise in a relatively large city in Europe.

My biggest complaint is the recreation/fitness facilities. The "Spa" is apparently run as an independent business, where hotel guests are made to feel like "outsiders". The fitness room for hotel guests (the rest of the spa is off limits without an additional fee) is very remote, extremely hot (wasn't air conditioned on very hot days in Italy) and there was no water available or towels. When I made the long "trip" back to the spa front desk to ask for a towel, I was told it would cost 5 Euro! My wife wanted to use the sauna and was told that was 10 Euro and with the pool 15! In general, using the Spa made one feel like an intruder -- even though we were hotel guests over 6 days!

Still, considering the price, this hotel provided excellent value and service.

Room Tip: Apartments are a better deal and in a separate building on the grounds.

This is a very nice hotel in Padova with large, modern rooms with safety deposit box, free wi-fi, great breakfast buffet with a good selection of food, a hotel bar, and the hotel staff are very nice and friendly. You have also access to free parking space outdoors (indoor garage is available too but there is a fee for that). The hotel also has a spa, offering massages, manicure, pedicure, and also a spa area with pools and a small garden where you can sunbathe. Please note though that the hotel is not very near the old town of Padova where all the shops and restaurants are, you can walk, but it's a bit far... It's better to take your car, the bus or a taxi. To walk to the train station is about 10-20 minutes.

Lovely hotel, with large rooms, fanstastic bathrooms. The breakfast room was lovely and the choice was one of the best we have had in Italy. One of the ladies at breakfast was very attentive and welcoming. They were always filling up throughout the morning and you could eat quite late. The pool was extra, but nice, although a little on the cold side. The wellness suite was worth a try and a new experience. Although when we arrived there was a problem with our booking, it was swiftly rectified and it was a lovely stay in Padova. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and you can get a bus from the train / bus station and it drops you off outside the hotel or pay £10 to £12 euro for a taxi.
Padova is an excellant base, you can get trains to Verona, Venice, Rome, good location and very reasonable train prices and on time and clean. UK trains could learn alot from Italy, on time, clean, well priced and FULL.

The Hotel had so much potential, but overall we felt let down. Our room was nice, the staff were friendly, and the in house restaurant served good food. The down side was the 24 hours it took to fix a blinking light in the room which meant we could not clearly see clothes in the wardrobe or the safe buttons. Its a non-smoking hotel but guests can smoke on their balconies and seem to use the fire stairs. As a result our room smelt of smoke all the time and it got worse whenever some one was smoking nearby. Finally, if you are looking for a hotel within easy walking distance of the old town, then this is not the hotel for you. We tried walking back from St Antonios and it took more than half an hour.

Room Tip: ask for a higher floor with out a balcony if you want to lessen the smell of smoke in your room
