I note some Australian tourists have been disappointed by this hotel ! Hmmm. It is important for them and all others to acknowledge that the Veneto region of Italy is high class. People are well educated, well brought up and well mannered. If you want all the false bonhomie of hotel reception staff, then try the Marriott in the USA ! The staff at the Plaza are professional. They are not over talkative and nor do they need to be. This is largely a business hotel but equally a fantastic establishment for tourists. The main piazzas of Padua are five minutes away on foot. There is the most impressive ice cream parlour just opposite. The rooms are very clean as are the superb bathrooms. All my requests and queries were politely and efficiently dealt with by the reception staff. But they are not the type of personnel who will befriend you. They do their job and do it well. Don't be fooled by the rather outdated appearance of the building itself, the interiors more than compensate for this. The only things my room lacked were a kettle and cups, and an iron (but there is an ironing room). The room wifi rate is very cheap. The breakfast buffet is served in a sumptuous setting and is more than adequate. My five days at the Plaza and Padua were memorable and peaceful. I can't rate the location of this hotel enough. Don't be fooled into staying in hotels near the station ie. too far and a bit seedy. If you fancy great Padovan cuisine, then try the Osteria dei Fabbri which is a ten minute walk away. The best way to find the hotel is to take a bus from Venice Marco Polo airport to Padua bus station (50 minutes). Then take the bus into Padua (very short trip). The bus stops about a minute away from the hotel and any bus driver wil tell you where to get off.
