“Very welcoming”
Reviewed 25 June 2012

We have just spent a very relaxing seven nights at the B&B Al Santo. Adelina and her family are lovely and make you feel very welcome in their beautiful home. The house is in an attractive, tree-lined residential street about ten minutes walk from the centre of town. At the rear, there is a lovely garden where breakfast is served. Two of the rooms (green and orange) have a shared balcony overlooking the gardens at the rear and, beyond, a park with mature trees. You have access to your room and to the garden throughout the day. Breakfast was lovely with coffee, fruit juice, croissants, yoghurt, fresh fruit, rolls and toasts. All rooms have air conditioning, which we made good use of as temperatures were unseasonally high when we were there. We met lots of lovely people during our stay from Italy, America and France. This felt like the real Italy!

Room Tip: The green and orange rooms have a shared balcony overlooking the gardens at the rear. The blue room...

This is a private home in a residential neighborhood (with parking available) a ten-minute walk from the Basilica. You'll feel like an Italian! The hostess is charming, very accommodating, and knowledgeable about great restaurants in the area. The breakfast is typical with good-quality croissants and fresh fruit. Our room was very quiet with a small balcony overlooking the garden. If you don't like this place, you don't like bed and breakfasts!

Room Tip: We had the Orange Room (#3) with a small balcony and private bath and it was very comfortable.

Reviewed 11 April 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights following a cycling trip through Veneto early April, where we stayed in everything from simpe B&Bs to more polished hotels. The B&B Al santo was a very pleasant place to spend the last couple of nights. It is a B&B and not a luxury property, but it is clean and comfortable and most importantly comes with some very good hosts. It really feels like staying at someones home. Pancrazio provided us with a detailed and interesting introduction to his home town (in Italian) on arrival and interestingly pointed out that the old city walls of Padova goes right through the back garden of the house! Both he and Adelina were very helpful and and welcoming throughout our stay and we had nice conversations with the other guests over breakfast. Padova itself is an interesting and charming city, combining the young vibe of a living university city with the legacies in architecture and arts that comes with the second oldest university in Italy.

I didn't spend much time at the B&B so I can't say too much about it. The lady running this B&B was very friendly and helpful though. My bathroom was tiny and the breakfast was basic, but everything else was great. I would definitely stay here again.

Be sure to bring soap and shampoo. I didn't and had to make a quick run to the grocery store in the morning =)

We stayed at this B&B for 4 nights in mid-Oct. and had a wonderful stay. The B&B is run by a very warm and friendly family, and the rooms are spacious, clean and very bright. Breakfast each morning was great fun, and we would HIGHLY recommend this B&B if you would like to explore Padua, Venice and the surrounding areas.

B&B is incredibly close (less than 5 minute walk) to the Prato della Valle, the Santo, and an easy tram ride or walk to downtown Padua and the train station.
