The Belludi 37 is a fascinating study in contradictions. The personnel is 5-star, from the breakfast servers to the front desk . Some of the amenities (the espresso machine in the room, the complimentary goodies in the fridge, the complimentary bottle of Prosecco) are 5-star. The location is perfect, within easy walking distance of the inner city. Our room was large and quiet. Internet was flawless and the flat screen TV worked perfectly--except when they were moving the antenna (although Italian TV has little to offer). Parking is available, but tricky. Make sure you reserve a spot. If you do, you might find your rental scrunched in beside a new Ferrari. But, don't worry, the truly fantastic personnel will move your car for you and miraculously keep it--and the Ferrari--intact. All of that said, the physical facilities are 2-star. Our bathroom was small and rather primitive. The walls needed a coat of paint. The shutters on the windows seemed almost authentically medieval. Bottom line, it's an old building that definitely needs some work. But, within hours the personnel and the amenities will make you think you are in a 4-star hotel. It isn't cheap, but it would unquestionably be our first choice for future trips to Padua.
