Hotel recommendation!

Hello All,

We are staying for one night in Padua in August and I need some advice.

I've read that the bit around the train station isnt very safe. I was initially thinking of staying at Hotel Al Cason, but figured it might not be very safe. So, I am looking for a place near the centre of town.

Our requirements are these - like everyone, a clean affordable place which is near some restaurants/bars in the evening (about 15 minute walk away) and not too far from all the sights.

Is Prato della Valle too far out? M14, Al Santo and Casa del Pellegrino in that area have had good reviews, but some reviews say there are no bars in that are in the evening?

I've heard Piazza delle Erbe is better, any recommendations around that area? Thanks, much appreciated!

I don't know how late they are open, but around Casa del Pellegrino there are bars in both direction (I used one yesterday.....) and restaurants... I just discovereed a new one at pontecorvo (literally 300 meters from Casa del pellegrino) with a wonderful al fresco space between trees and palms and between two little rivers... http://www.donnairene.com/

Prato della Valle is a very nice area, there are plenty of bars there and on Umberto Primo and Roma roads, the way you take to reach Piazza delle Erbe.

I don't know many hotels close to Piazza delle Erbe besides Hotel Majestic Toscanelli, which is pretty expensive by the way.

Prato della Valle is nice but does not have that cozy intimate feeling nearer to Piazza delle Erbe or nearby surrounding. You can check Belludi 37 near St Anthony basilica. I stayed in PadovaResidence, an apartment, and it was just 50 ft or so from the Piazza delle Erbe. You can have a very comfortable stay there. And its so near to most sights and eateries. Markets and concerts are held at nearby squares as well.

The town is small and you being Europeans (whose stroll equals our journey !) I think you will find its a small and very walkable town. The other suggestions are great too.

I second the Belludi 37. It was right around the corner from the tram route, had wonderful breakfasts, large spotless rooms, wonderful service. Of our 5 week trip to Europe this was our favourite hotel.
