“Well located 5 mins from the train station”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

The walk from the train station involves turning right going under an underpass and then past a bar where people hang around outside and then right onto a road with a random assortment of buidings. It was safe and a 5 min walk, although not the most beautiful walk you will take in Padova.Its 15 mins walking distance to see Giotto's frescos and I found a good breakfast, friendly staff and a comfortable room for £52. The station location makes it, as the italian trains are very good and reasonably priced and i'd recommend using them.

We returned on Monday Sept 3 from a five night stay at this surprisingly good hotel. Chosen because of its proximity to the station (I have 74 year old legs!) and its good reviews on TA, we, like many others, found our first impressions from the outside were not, shall we say, great but matters improved after entering the lobby to a warm welcome. Our room (315) was slightly on the small side and, initially, the minimalist interior was not to our taste but within hours we became accustomed to the style and found it more that adequate to our needs. The bathroom was roomy and towels etc changed each day, as were the beds. The proximity of the busy railway line did not prove any hindrance to a good night's sleep!The staff throughout our stay could not have been more helpful, providing pots of tea and other drinks immediately on request. The breakfast choices were superb and plentiful, largely resulting in our not bothering with lunches! Even for the writer, the walk into town was accomplished with ease and, although the area in which the hotel is situated is possibly not the most salubrious, my wife and I had no qualms about walking back to it even at 1100pm. Unfortunately the hotel restaurant was closed for the staff's summer holidays so we cannot pass judgment on it but we were more than happy to eat each night at the Rosso Pomodoro (see separate review), just 10 minutes walk away. Our sincere thanks go the staff for making our stay so enjoyable and we heartilly recommend this very reasonably priced hotel to other visitors to Padua. PS. The fruit stall referred to in earlier reviews is closed from the end of August until the following Spring.

The outside looked a little shady, but the inside was amazing. The rooms were spacious and clean, the front desk clerks were extremely helpful and friendly, and the breakfast buffet was one of the best I've had in a hotel. They even came by to ask if you wanted a fresh cappuccino or coffee! As other reviewers mentioned, the neighborhood is a little run down, but you're a 7 minute walk from the train station where you can easily hop a train to Venice or wherever else, and a short walk into the heart of Padova leads to many cute restaurants and things to do and see. The free wifi was also a great plus.

Location was convenient for the train station (why we chose it) but not actually the best area. This was all made up for in the hotel, lovely room and excellent breakfast but most of all the most helpful staff who spent half an hour trying to help us, including calling up the bus company! Would definitely recommend.

Please do not be put off by the exterior of the hotel, inside it is very clean. The air conditioning unit was in pieces when we arrived, the manager came up to check, the engineer had been out and not told her, we were moved within minutes and they helped with the luggage, very attentive.
The breakfast was lovely as were the staff. Padua is great place, the Piazza Dei Signori at night is wonderful, eat at La Lanterna in the Piazza and have a cocktail in the restaurant opposite. No one eats before 7.30 but be aware that the restaurant suddenly gets very busy after they have set up.
This is an excellent hotel to explore both Venice and Verona. Venice is less than half an hour on the train and cost 7.00 Euros return. It is very reasonable compred with Venice's prices.

While the neighborhood has seen better days, the interior of the hotel is quite clean, adequately appointed and the staff is super friendly and helpful. Parking accross the street was convenient, safe and adequate - right next store to a wonderful fruit stand. The desk can direct you to a wonderful restaurant, a straightforward 5 minute walk, but somewhat obscured by the its pizzabar frontage. Don't drive to St. Anthony's; the circuitous route of narrow one way streets is a challenge for the best GPS. There is good public transportation and even a cab is preferable. The train station really is only a five minute walk away, and although we were above the tracks for our three night stay, we were never disturbed by the trains. No, the older construction doesn't allow for much sound insulation between rooms, but a soft radio background fixes that. Wish the AC would stay on when turning the lights out on leaving; took a while to cool down during the heat wave they had. If you're not intent on recreating little America wherever you are in Italy, the breakfast bar was freshly kept up, well served, quite adequate and very Italian. The staff will bend over backwards to make your stay pleasant. I'm sure there are better facilities in the area, but we went to Italy to meet the people (a nice physical plant you can find anywhere), and the people at the Al Cason are so lovely, we would certainly go there again again. Enjoy!

Staff was really helpful and the breakfast is delicious. Our rooms were comfortable and clean. Good restaurant suggestions and a yummy fruit bar across the street. A pleasant stay.
