1.38km from Autofficina Zanotto sncA fairly large hotel on a corner plot in quiet residential streets about a kilometre or so from the old city centre. Booking three weeks or so in advance for late June, there were only a few hotels that met our criteria (including importantly easy parking). As we used the hotel as a base for a day trip to Padua by train, it would have been good to be closer to the station, but there was a bus stop just a minute from the hotel from which it took only 10 minutes or so to get to the station. We paid £157 for two nights including breakfast, with parking under the building at a very reasonable 5 euros a day - at hotels in other cities we had had to park some distance away and the cost was more per day than our hire car! Friendly, helpful young staff. Although perhaps not as chic/tasteful as some others we stayed in on our trip to northern Italy, the room was modern, comfortable and spotlessly clean, with a fridge, efficient air con and WiFi (usually good, but could be glacially slow at times). Slightly odd gold faux snakeskin fabric on the headboard. Nice bathroom with plentiful toiletries. The shower was pretty weak and took a long time to come to temperature. There was a bar and we had drinks in the evening in the outside enclosed patio area, in preference to the very comfy-looking lounge. We also ate breakfast in the patio area. Breakfast was continental plus, with juice, a couple of cereals, yogurt, basic fresh fruit, sliced meat and cheese, bread and rolls, some salad items and a big selection of cakes and pastries. Also excellent made-to-order coffee and hot chocolate.
