This is a very large modern hotel. Its only real drawback, I think, is its location: at a rather unnerving multiple road junction (which reminded me of L’Etoile in Paris). At least it is very convenient for the bus to and from Venice airport.
The room was quite large and well lit, with a good view from the balcony and ample storage space. Again, just one drawback: the TV set was very high up, so not easy to look at when seated (or even perhaps when standing).
One unusual feature is that the breakfast room is on the top (7th) floor. It’s called the Sala Panorama and the view across Padua is truly panoramic. There is free internet access on the ground floor.
Sleep quality was OK, except on the third night. At 4.15 a.m. a family (not Italian) preparing to leave the hotel made a dreadful racket. I had to approach them and ask them to quieten down.
Padua struck me as a delightful city. The historic centre is obviously its biggest attraction but, once you get away from the road junction, the area around the hotel is surprisingly pleasant thanks to parkland and one of the local rivers.
