Good location, cheap hotel for short stay, quirky

Posted Oct 2, 2013
Pros: Good location and a walk away from main attractions.
Cons: Rooms compared to Irish hotel rooms are small, dark and cramped, very little you can do about this.
Location: Opposite the St. Anthony Church, walk about 20 mins from Giotto chapel and 15 mins from shopping streets
Room very small for 3 adult girls. One double bed (2 singles pushed together) which is typical of continental Europe and one single with shelve above was in small room called a triple room. You could hit your foot off edge of the single bed on the way to the bathroom if not careful. Breakfast was OK with cereal, fruit, good coffee etc and cost 7euro.

Poorly decorated, tacky art, old and dated with very basic rooms. The service we got was cold and them seemed anoyed to be talking to us in English. We stayed here to be close to Venice but were foolishly mistaken, its about 45 on the train. No fridge, no kettle pretty much a bed and a tv. Wouldn't recommend anyone stay here not much going for it, this was a poor choice on our behalf donot be fooled, you can get a better place for the money.

Very comfortable and convenient, especially with the tram at the bottom of the street and also being 2 min away from the Duomo. Very helpful staff.

Nice hotel in an excellent location.

Posted Aug 18, 2013
Nice room. Very nice and helpful staff. Location is great for visiting the Basilica of San Antonio and botanic gardens. Ten to 15 minute walk to other historic sites, such as the Scrovegni Chapel. Note that there is an additional fee of 10 euros per day to park your car at the hotel.

Overall tis was a reasonable hotel for the price. very close to Santa Antonio Church and in a very historic area. Room was a little small for 2 people and shower was typical european small for an American shower but over all it was a good value and experience.

Close to Sites

The atmosphere is amazing. It's decorated with art by one of the owners. The staff for the most part are friendly and helpful. However, the older woman who works the front counter often seemed put out by my questions. The hotel is also located near many sites such as the Botanical Garden, the Valle di Prato and St. Anthony's Basilica. The breakfast seemed a bit skimpy for the price: cereal, milk, bread, pastrys, toast, juice and coffee. For future visits, this hotel is 2nd on my list.

Veneto vacation

Posted May 15, 2012 on Hotels.com
Very pleasant hotel 100 meters from Piazza del Santo (Basilica of St Anthony). Rooms are clean, if quirkily decorated. Friendly and helpful staff. Hotel is only a block from the Santo Tram stop at Riv. Businello. Quick access to city center (Palazzo Bo, Palazzo della Ragione) the Scrovegni Chapel, and the train/bus station. Get a 48 or 72 hour Padova Card at the train station Tourist Office includes unlimited use of city trams and buses, free entry to many museums, only 1 EU extra for Scrovegni Chapel (be sure to book a reservation time minimum 24 hours in advance.

Our week in Padua/Venice

Posted Apr 23, 2012
Pros: cleanliness
Cons: noise
Location: Entrance is up a side street which you may miss so be careful
The room was spotlessly clean and warm but you can hear other guests especially students. Our kingsize bed was actually two singles put together. The Blue room publicity photos do it justice but the external photos are of the general area, not what you can see from the windows. However it is close to the centre of Padua/Padova so the sites shown are close by. It is about 20-30mins walk from the train and bus stations (7 Euros return by cheapest train to Venice, 8 Euros by bus to Marco Polo airport - Apr2012). Breakfast at the hotel was quoted at 7 Euros (Apr2012). In general, Italian hotels do not have kettles etc and this one is not an exception. Staff were helpful and pleasant. There is a lift. The artwork was not the ordinary landscape/portrait style.

Al Fagiano Hotel - Padua / Padova Italy

Posted Sep 7, 2011 on Hotels.com
This hotel is good on a budget. Nicer than a backpacker type place, but no luxury amenities. The owners are nice and they and thus the hotel have a quirky artistic vibe. There is limited parking, but convenient if it is available as parking is very difficult in the area.
