Location outstanding, staff outstanding, would do it again
Location 100' or so directly in front of train station is a big plus. Above a McDonalds and KFC would ordinarily not be worth mentioning except on a late Sunday night when every restaurant in Padua was closed, both turned out to be the most popular places in town, including for us!!! Staff very helpful with multiple and frequent questions. Breakfast room beautiful. Rooms, air conditioning, wi-fi, all better than most. When anyone has a problem with their iPhone or computer as we did, lots lots of electrical shops within a block or two that took care of the problem, cheaper than at home. Bus to VCE perfect and cheap. Would definitely do it again, and Padua deserves another visit.
Maybe the apparent immigrant, "refugees" loitering on and around the area.
Just one problem
Very close to station, polite staff, good breakfast selection, large bed, clean.
The shower head didn't really work, so had to squat in the bath. Not what you really expect with 4 star hotel.
