“Great hotel!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Our first trip to Abano so not too sure what to expect. We booked a 3 night full board package (which included some treatments) and weren't disappointed. From the moment we entered the superb entrance hall, the staff couldn't do enough to be more helpful. Our junior suite was spacious, comfortable and clean (although book a more expensive suite if you are after a view - were weren't!) and the food at each meal was plentiful and very good. The thermal baths themselves are great too. Really warm and although I personally thought the idea of swimming from the indoor to the outdoor pool a bit crazy due to it being December, it was infact really warm! Surprisingly the pools when we used them (mainly in the afternoon) were pretty empty. The rounding area outside the area has some cute shops and coffee bars which are great for people watching along with some lovely craft stalls. Don't however go to Abano if you want wildness; this is strictly a quiet relaxing place for you to enjoy peace and quiet!

Room Tip: Junior suites are great if you want space however go for the more expensive ones if you want a view...

Dear Reviewer,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your Abano Grand Hotel experience on Tripadvisor. I was pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay overall from the location of the hotel to the small personal touches to help celebrate our Guests special occasions. As you mentioned our location is superb with all your shopping requirements within walking distance which especially comes in handy at this time of the year . I am glad that you found time to enjoy our Spa area and the view of our luxurious garden whilst swimming in our warm, full length outdoor thermal swimming pool , even in winter ( as it is one of our best features) It pleases me greatly that the services and facilities provided throughout your stay met your expectation and the Abano Grand became your favorite place to stay when visiting Abano.
Kind regards

I first want to thank Francesco Alfare for welcoming my wife and I to the hotel. Although we are used to different types of Spa's in the U.S. and prefer more modern and more updated physical facilities, I have to say that the service at the hotel was exceptional and the people at the spa and hotel couldn't have been nicer. Also, I thought the food was very good and typical of a higher end cruise line in atmosphere, food and service. It's important to note that people do get dressed up every evening and jackets are required for men at dinnertime. From a personal point of view, I think we were the only American's at the hotel and would have felt much more comfortable if there were other English speaking guests at the hotel. This is not a criticism but an observation of the clientele of the hotel/spa. My guess is the vast majority of the clientele are from Russia and Germany . The bottom line is my wife and I had an enjoyable time and were glad we stayed there.

Headed by its manager Francesco Alfare under the direction of the Family Borile,this hotel is well managed . The dining room headed by Renzo is top notch. Food is served elegantly without making you feel uncomforble . The new pool is wonderful with the latest massage water treatments. We have been going to this Hotel for more than 15 Years and have always enjoyed our Vacation. Best Spa I'm Italy. You will always remember your vacation at this great Hotel.

First time in this hotel, good sized room but not a great view. The amenities were first class, as were the staff who were very obliging. Food excellent but wine alittle pricey. Overall a top class experience.

I have been a returning customer at your Grand Hotel Abano for over 10 years, and have always been very happy with your service. I am very pleased with the entire hotel operation and services, including the spa team, the food & beverage and any other aspects of the hotel.

This year I stayed at the hotel and am happy to inform that this year I have enjoyed staying at the hotel even more than previously. Since Francesco took charge the general atmosphere at the hotel has improved even more, and I have received excellent service and attention from him and his team. Francesco is very friendly and professional, and gives a very good service.

I have already recommended this hotel many times in the past to my friends, and will keep recommending it in the future to all my friends in Russia and overseas.

We spent an amazing week at the hotel. Everything was 1st class: service, attention to details, pools/treatments. We were especially impressed with the quality of food and the wine list. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, going an extra mile to keep its visitors happy. We stayed at the junior suite, which offered comfortable bedding, lots of space and a park view. The overall decor is 'traditional' Italian and charming.
Given this is the only 5* luxury hotel in Abano area, this is definitely place if you want something special.

Room Tip: All rooms are very spacy and to the best standards.
