The Best Western / Galileo Padova is a very comfortable hotel for its price. We went there with 2 small kids for a few days and they enjoyed their stay as much as we did. The hotel is big but not impersonal - they try to please every request you may have, very politely.
We had a "family room" which in fact is 2 rooms connected by a door - kids loved to have their own room. Each room is big, with either a double bed or two single beds. There is also a bathroom (with big shower, no bathtub, toilet and sink), a corridor (nice for a pram), a desk, tv with international channels. Wifi is also available in the room but connection is quite slow. The room is clean (and cleaned everyday - we had the impression they took care not to come when kids took their nap).
The breakfast has a lot of choice, with conventional breads/egg/bacon/cereals/fruits/etc. you will find in any good hotel but also with local specialties (tasty pastries and yoghurt a..o.). Kids loved their breakfast. There is a restaurant in the building next to the hotel: it serves decent food but a bit pricy. Choice is decent. They can prepare specific food for your children but they definitely can't mash it (no mixer). I would advise going there only if you cannot go to the city center.
We also tested the swimming pool. Not all the jacuzzi devices were working but water is hot (tested in summer) and provides ample space for kids to play and enjoy it. It's a pity that sometimes they come to collect the 5 EUR per person (indicated next to the swimming pool, even kids have to pay!) and sometimes not. It would be nice just to have a free swimming pool for people staying in the hotel.
Other small nice things: the big hall has two computers where you can print your plane tickets, breakfast hours are family-friendly (up to 10am and they don't kick you out), space for kids to roam around the hotel, Auchan supermarket close-by, relatively quiet neighborhood (university neighborhood, quiet in summer).
The only potential negative point in this hotel is its location. It's actually quite far from the city center. It's better to take a taxi (than to walk, plus there is no/very few parking space in the center).
