I stayed at Hotel Donatello in 2016 and just now stayed again in 2017 because it is an outstanding place. I can't say enough about the excellence of the staff in terms of professional service and personalized attention. The woman at the front desk made me feel so very welcomed to ask any and all questions about sites to visits,...

Parking availability and the hotel's location were main considerations for us. Hotel Donatello is perfect in terms of both. Besides it's a nice boutique hotel, pretty good for a short stay. The room was on a smaller side but it had a good modern bathroom. The parking is in the courtyard with fairly narrow gates to navigate so a cadillac...

The hotel is located beside the main attraction in Padua, the San Antonio de Padua Cathedral. It is an old style hotel with helpful staffs, the room was nice with modern bathroom. The only problem is that there's only one elevator with 4 person capacity. But the best attribute of the hotel is it's location definitely best for pilgrims!!!

We stayed in the Hotel Donatello for five nights at the beginning of May. We chose the location because of its proximity to the Santo and the Prato della Valle. Before we arrived I had some reservations about its location since many of the other places of interest were a bit further away. As it turned out this was not...

The hotel is a little old, but the room is enough large and the staffs are very professional. It's in front of the basilica of Saint Anthony. There is a tram where we walk a few minutes from the hotel. Also there is a tabac where we can buy the tram ticket in front of the tram station. We can...

Situated at the center of Padua, small, old hotel, simple yet elegant. Very good breakfast. Friendly staff. Room size is ok. Bathroom size is decent but shower is small. Easy access to plaza and shopping. Right in front of the basilica of st. anthony. Highly recommended.

The Hotel Donatello is clean, comfortable, and in a great location for visiting this small and lovely city. It is typical of many family owned and operated hotels through outage world in that that staff is very helpful, well-informed and pleasant to interact with. My room was basic and served my needs for the 5 days and nights I was...

The hotel is located exactly in front of the basilica of Saint Anthony, it's very nice and near to every part of the city. The room was ordered and clean. The personal were very gentle and kind. When I will come back to Padua I definitely would return here. Very recommended!

Excellent food and service. The staff were so friendly and helpful. A group of us went in for pre dinner party drinks and lovely little pizzas were served along with the crisps. We had lunch and dinner there on a few occasions and were very pleased with everything. We would recommend it

This is a rather small, family type hotel just opposite the famous Basilica di S.Antonio. By the way, on the website of this basilica you will find a unique webcam showing the tomb of the Saint 24 h/day! The location of the hotel is great but from several rooms, including mine at the front side, the view on the basilica...
