Where to begin…. I had to stay here for two weeks in April while on a business trip. It was by far the noisiest, most cramped room I have ever stayed in. I was given a TINY room (about a 10 by 10 foot space) on the second floor facing the street. The bed was incredibly hard and there was no desk space. I had the keep my suitcase in front of the door because there was nowhere else to put it. The hotel is right across the street from a major hospital and ambulances constantly drove by while blaring their sirens. On top of that my room reeked of smoke, even though it was listed as a non-smoking room. I asked the man at front desk if I could have a different room, but all he did was yell at the housekeeper and have her douse the room in chemicals to try to mask the smell. I kept the window open during the day to air out the room but had to close it at night due to the loud street noise. It took about a week for the smoke/chemical smell to go away. Parking was at an additional cost and was difficult to access from the busy street. There is nothing in terms of shopping and eating in the immediate vicinity, but downtown Padua isn’t too far away, about a fifteen minute walk. The best part of the hotel was the breakfast, which was excellent and consisted of assorted croissants, rolls, deli meats, cheese, hard boiled eggs, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, and made to order cappuccino. The Internet also functioned well, but the uncomfortable room and lack of peace and quiet by far overshadowed the tasty breakfast and decent WiFi.
