The hotel is located in the city centre, just next to the Saint Anthony Basilica, which is an impressive building. The hotel is small, like family type, with a perfect service and kind and helpful staff. My single room was big and clean, having a minibar and safety box. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was convenient and very nice...

Just spent a week here. Hotel and room were spotless. You are within walking distance of all the main attractions and restaurants. Tram stop 3 minute walk away for easy access to train station. If you time it properly, you can be in Venice in 40 minutes from the hotel. Staff were very friendly. Highly recommended.

I had a lovely stay at this hotel - 7 nights over June/July. I had asked for a room overlooking the Basilica di Sant Antonio and got it. My room was big with a big bathroom (had a shower in mine, not a bath, which is what I asked for). The room was very clean and attractively designed - much...

We spent four pleasant nights in a corner room facing the basilica and the piazza del Santo. Old building, traditional colors and decoration, though very well kept and absolutely clean. Very polite and efficient service. Bed sheets were excellent quality and changed every date. I would recommend it.

Modest, old style hotel with a great location right next to the beautiful duomo of St. Anthony. You will be within easy hearing distance of the big bells, and it all adds to the atmosphere. We had a nice room facing the tiny street. There is a private parking garage, where you can park the car and start exploring Padua...

Great location for Padua's St. Antony Basilica. Our room faced a quiet street and we could see the Basilica from our window. Walking distance to magnificent Scrovegni Chapel. Nice breakfast on site with excellent service and a parking free of charge. We couldn't ask for more, it was just wonderful. We will be back for sure.
