We were staying at the hotel for 2 days, for a conference in Padua. The location is great, few minutes walk to most attractions. The staff was nice and extremely helpful. Rooms are clean and very basic. Breakfast was very simple but came with cappuccino :)

I believe this is my first review on Trip Advisor and was motivated to do so because I had a most fabulous experience at Hotel Donatello. I stayed there for two weeks. The hotel staff were superior in friendliness and helpfulness as well as in competency and efficiency in responses to requests for matters related to the room. I loved...

The bed is really hard like a stone as well as pillows. My back hurt after one night. And I would say I am not a picky one. Curtains can not be closed fully on the window. I used my hair pins to fix them. Personal was nice and location is great. No other pluses found

This hotel is situated in a prime position opposite the Basilica. There is secure parking on-site, which is a big plus in the area where parking is at a premium. The staff were affable and helpful (mainly), although the receptionist on our morning of departure was very stressed (and let it be shown) because she was on her own and...

We stayed here in April 2015. The property is very nicely decorated, across from the Basilica of San Antonio. The staff was very accommodating of our request to move from a room with a tub to one with a shower. The room and bath were spacious and comfortable. Very quiet, too. The breakfast buffet was very nice. We also enjoyed...

Situated opposite the Basilica of St Antonio, with a superb view from my window. Hotel old, some furnishings faded, but made up for by excellent service. Fresh linen and towels daily, and every cup of breakfast coffee freshly made. However, with a small lift unable to take an occupied wheelchair, and long corridors with occasional steps unfortunately does not make...
