“Excellent hotel and location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2011

We stayed at this hotel in Set/11 for 4 nights. We drove down from Bolzano and used it as our base to explore Venice and the region. The rooms were quiet, large, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious. Hotel Giovanni is conveniently located near the motor way and has free parking. We also highly recommend the restaurant, also called Giovanni.

Its a good and clean hotel but for sure its not 4 stars hotel. 3 maybe. The beds were not comfortable (2 joint twin beds?), noisy air conditioning system, view houses in front. A bit outdated shower.

Location is also not excellent. Strangers at night looked a bit scary :) Its 30-40 mins walk from the center. It is situated just near the big road.

On the other hand, staff was very friendly. The best part was breakfast. They served home made cake!!! and very good fruits.

Everything was great. I was phoned to South Africa to confirm my booking. On arrival,we were early, and we were giving a free coffee and the most delicious assortment of homemade cakes & biscuits while our room was being prepared.The room otself was spacious and comfortable and well decorated. We received free bus tickets to Padova,with lots of advice on what to see & do. We had opted for a weekend package,which included dinner at Giovanni's Ristorante,a short walk from the hotel.The restuarant is well supported by Italians,which is always a good sign. we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The breakfasts were really good,and we were offered freshly cooked eggs to our liking.We would definately stay there again,nothing was too much trouble. & Stefania speaks English very well.If you come by car,there is plenty parking,and you can leave the car there,and take the bus to town or to the station if you want to use it as a base to go to Venice for the day.

We (family of 4 adults) stayed in the hotel Giovanni on our trip home from Croatia. We looked for a hotel which was conveniently located to park the car in a safe parking lot (the hotel has an open area parking lot at the back of the hotel), which was quiet and handy to get into the city centre. The Giovanni met all these requirements.
We booked two double rooms on the same morning and when we arrived got our rooms immediately. Check in was friendly and efficient. We had very large rooms with a large bathroom. They were quiet towards the outside (despite being close to a noisy road). As with all hotels, noise might be a problem from the inside (neighbours), but we didn't experience that.
There's a little bus that takes you to the city centre, the bus station is around the block. A taxi ride is about 8 Euro, which is fine - it takes about 5 minutes.
The breakfast was lovely. The hotel owner / manager actually makes the pastry herself, and the little cakes I had were delicious. There's a wide range of choice (ham, cheese, bread, pastry, joghurt, fruit etc.) and we really liked it.
The overall impression of the hotel is a bit dated , the rooms might perhaps need a bit of renovation (especially the carpets)- also, it seems that the area around the hotel deteriorated a bit since it has been built. But we felt very happy there, and we enjoyed our short stay a lot.
I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to use the hotel as a basis to travel to other cities in the region.

Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 teenagers stayed at the Hotel Giovanni for 3 nights in the fall of 2010. We drove down from Switzerland and used it as our base to explore Venice and the region. We had two rooms, one with two beds and one with three. Both rooms were quiet, large, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious and graciously served! We also highly recommend the restaurant, also called Giovanni. The food was outstanding and once we realized that we didn't have to accept everything offered, the price was reasonable and the meal not too filling. Hotel Giovanni is conveniently located near the motor way and has free parking. A bus runs from very close to the hotel to downtown Padua and to the train station. We would happily stay there again.
