My wife and I found this hotel here on Tripadviser and were not disappointed at all.
Making the reservation directly with the hotel went smoothly. We choose the hotel because it was close to Venice and Padova. Both places can be reached in app. 30-35 minutes with a bus that start / stops 100 meter from hotel. We found that taking the bus to both cities was really convenience compared to driving there yourself. Price was app. 4-5 euro for a return ticket.
The hotel is small with a few numbers of rooms – the way we prefer it. It is fare more personal and the owners has insured that this hotel has own romantic style. The room and bathroom are really nice and the pictures on the homepage or those other travellers have uploaded here on Tripadviser do not promise too much.
The hotel has a little yard with a number of chairs and tables. It is a really nice place where you can plan your next trip, read a book or just enjoy an inexpensive cup of coffee from the coffee machine. We also met some of the other guests there and discussed the areas possibilities whixh really added value.
As others has mentioned it is really easy to get a lot of help in the reception. The got an answer to any question you can ask ;-)
