The Palladio enjoys a clever restoration, taking an ancient building and reworking the insides to look like a modern SoHo loft hotel. I saw two rooms -- neither had any view (unless you count a wall) as the hotel is wedged in the center of a city along narrow streets. The beds are very comfortable, the bathrooms small but well appointed, the large flat-screen television pivots so that it can be seen, and the wifi is strong and reliable. But the rooms are small! and have very little storage. I could hear every word of a soft conversation in the next room from my shower, and every note of the hip-hop music the other guest played late into the night. The service is crisp and efficient, the lobby is small, the bar functional only, and the breakfast pleasant. Best attribute is the location -- a few steps away from the charming restaurants, shops and squares of Vicenza. My advice is that hotel traditionalists might be disappointed with the overall Palladio experience, but those wanting something hip and fun will enjoy it.
