“Convenient hotel, but some basic problems”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Hotel convenient for rail station. 20min walk to city centre. Breakfast variety reasonable. Dinner in hotel restaurant nice food and reasonable value. We were persuaded to upgrade to a suite. The big problem was temperature control. The room was far too hot. The wall mounted temp control was not connected to the heating, and it was impossible to turn it down. We managed to control the temperature only by having all windows open all night. When I complained I was told that the front desk would change the heating setting remotely. If they did it had no effect. Temperature control is such a basic item that I cannot rate this hotel more than 3. 2 other problems were useless bath drain plug ... Couldn't drain the bath. Also the advert for free wifi is misleading. The ad shows a person holding a tablet proclaiming free wifi. In reality free wifi is not available for tablets, only for laptops.

The hotel is very comfortable with reasonable room price. Its location its very nice (if plan to visit the centre and use the trains), meaning that it takes less than 10 min walk both from city centre and train station. For us it was very nice since we've visited cities around Padova (like Venezia, Monselice) and the city of Padova.
Rooms are spacious, very nice bed, clean. Bathroom was quite big and clean.
You have Free WiFi in the room. You just have to ask for login and pass. in the reception, which will expire after 24 hours (but no worries since you can ask for another login).
Breakfast is really nice. It is served in the 12 floor, with very nice outside view of Padova. You can have scrambled eggs, with varieties of ham, beacon, juices, fruits, sweets, etc. Coffee (espresso) is not such good since it is done from kind of small vending machine .
We were very happy with professionalism of the hotel personnel.
Grazie

Stayed there for new years eve. hotel is modern and well maintained. clean to perfection. staff attentive and helpful. Breakfast very good. so far probably the best nh i have ever been in italy. Got a weekend extender package. expected to have free minibar without refill, got the minibar refilled free of charge for the entire stay. Excellent takeaway pizzeria (green pizza or similar name) in front of the hotel. the hotel is approx 8 minutes walk to the train station, 8 minutes walk to the city centre, and is beside the Fiera.

NH Mantegna is a well-known modern and new hotel in Padua city. This hotel is pretty close to the train station ( "Padova Stazione") and city centre. Travellers can reach city centre by foot. The rooms and facilities are value for your money. Definitely you'll like the wide range of Italian breakfast. you can have whole view of Padova city from top floor of the Hotel.

The hotel is newly built: nice and comfortable rooms, however the water heating system is undersized so that you get rather burning or cold water.
It' s a 4 star but at 11.00 pm while the lobby bar is open no bar tender is there. The young and inexperienced front desk staff answered to me that the bar tender could not be there right away because he was working at the restaurant ar the 12th floor. No comment.
not a 4 star hotel . . . really, also because nobody is there for helping carrying yr luggage to your room.
Breakfast room badly disegned and wrongly laid out . . . . looks like a cripta even though it lies at the 12th floor. Service . . . not really 4 stars.

Very good hotel: enough spacious room, modern furniture, clean room and bathroom, good smell everywhere in corridors and room. Rich breakfast. Kind and helpful staff.
Staying at NH Mantegna confirmd my good opinion of NH chain.
Location: next to the Padua fair, it needs at least 20 minutes walking from citycentre.

The staff were very friendly ans willing to help with anything. They saw that I liked taking photos so they suggested places where I could get great shots. The were happy to answer any questions about their town and recommend places to go. This hotel is great value for money.
