“Room with connected webcam”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Friendly service in the hotel. Good breakfast.

However: We found a connected webcam, which was pointed at the bed. It was placed on the TV and was equipped with a transmitter unit. We have pulled all the plugs - but it still remained a dingy feeling.
The hotel is very noisy, when it is fully booked, as it was in october during a trade show.

We are so sorry that you have exchanged a digital TV decoder for a Webcam.

Installing a webcam is strictly forbidden in Italy, and who would put a web camera on television would be an extremely serious criminal. So before making a defamatory statement we would appreciated that you had ask to the reception staff your question. They would immediately gave all the appropriate information and we would have avoided a trivial misunderstanding.

Best Regards

Siamo molto dispiaciuti che abbiate scambiato un TV per digitale terrestre con una WebCam.

La cosa nella legislatura italiana è assolutamente vietata e chi ponesse una web camera sopra la televisione compirebbe un reato penale assai grave. Quindi prima di fare una affermazione diffamatoria avremmo gradito che aveste fatto presente al personale della reception la vostra questione. Vi sarebbero state immediatamente fornite tutte le informazioni del caso e avremmo evitato un banalissimo malinteso.

The services and the rooms are perfect. Is indicated to avoid the last floor because are attick and is a big noise if is raining. The bus station is near the hotel and the ticket cost 1.2 euro. Overall a nice, clean hotel with great services in a quite location

Firstly, this hotel is not easy to find. It's not close to the city center, public transport is unreliable in the area. The room was cold - the AC apparently works only in the summer, in the winter the heating is from small radiator - not enough to warm up the room. The bathroom had no heating at all. The breakfast was ok.

I spent a few days there, top floor room, was well furnished, new and clean.
It is not central, most people staying come by car. I had rented a bike at the train station, it is not close by, but reasonable. I would suggest they had bikes for rent for their clients, as Padova is nice to tour by bike.
Breakfast standard, pity it did not offer any restaurant facilities as for me it would have been of use as I stayed for a course for a few days. Nearby though there is a bar/restaurant that serves the purpose quite well.

Small but very charming and well appointed hotel on a quiet residential area on the outskirts of Padua. amazingly helpful front desk staff, Great if you have a car and a GPS system because finding any address anywhere in Padua is a very tricky without GPS. I suggest you leave your car at the hotel parking (free) and take public Bus 13 on a 10 minute ride to and from the heart of town for a stress free experience. I visited 7 other hotels in town and this was my favorite besides the far more expensive Hotel Balludi 37.
