Reviewed 15 June 2014

We needed somewhere close to the railway station and to the Scrovegni Chapel (just across the street from the railway station, and maybe 10 minutes to the Chapel), for which this place is just perfect. it is also thoughtfully managed, with kind and courteous staff; has clean, comfortable, freshly decorated - if perhaps not exciting - rooms with attached bathrooms with bathtubs and plenteous hotwater, and provides a fabulously generous breakfast - (ask for espresso if the 'Americano' coffee provided doesn't suit, and they will make it gladly and happily) - with the added joy of market-fresh cherries. We really liked it - and don't trouble about the 'newly arrived Italians' - and they will surely not trouble you. Indeed, smile at them, and they will perhaps return the smile.

Have to start by saying the breakfast was probably one of the best in Italy in this level of hotel.

Location is across the railway station, which is great if that's how you arrive. For walking into the city it's only 10 minutes but you're walking in a very foreign area with lots of newly arrived Italians.

The room had high ceilings and was quite average. Clean, though.

Elevators were straight from the 80s, though, including the music.

Night clerk did not speak English.

This was the best hotel we stayed in during many weeks wandering round Italy. It was just across from the station and while the area attracted young male ex- pats with nothing to do all day, we were reassured by the hotel's CCTV system. Our room and bathroom were spacious, light and clean as was the whole hotel. Breakfast was great and the staff were friendly, helpful and polite. My friend found it noisy at night and in the morning as we had the window open, but my earplugs did a great job.

This hotel is just across the street from the train station and is very convenient for train travelers. It is clean and comfortable and the staff is friendly and helpful. It is a short walk to the city center.

Room Tip: Room 210 has a balcony overlooking the plaza of the train station.

With newly redecorated rooms that are goodly sized and high-ceilinged, helpful staff, a wonderful breakfast,a location 1 minute from the train station and 5 minutes from Scrovegni Chapel, reasonable prices, and a very short train ride to Venice, you can have it all at the Grand'Italia,
Our room was clean, new, well-furnished and beautifully designed. Staff will acquaint you with Padova's sights on a map before you go out the door. Breakfast included fruits, patisserie, cereals, meats, cheeses, eggs, and more.
One proviso: during non-working hours, foreign workers congregate in front of internet phone and money transfer stores in the first block or so leading to the center. You are safe there, but if you prefer to avoid the people on the sidewalk, simply cross the street and walk to town on that side.
Padova is a gem of an Italian city well-worth a visit. In fact, being so very close to Venice, you can access Venice in minutes by train, returning to Padova in the evening to enjoy a terrific hotel and uninflated prices at restaurants on Padova's large piazze.

We needed somewhere close to the railway station. This hotel is less than a minute on foot. The staff were charming and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and a good size. Air conditioned. We had the room at the front with the balcony with French windows. Not much of a view (the station and bus terminal) but nice all the same. Breakfast was very good. A nice selection and again very helpful staff. We were in Padua to visit the Scrovegni Chapel which is within walking distance.

If you need a place to stay closes to train station, here is your hotel. I had spent one night here in April 2014. The staff here is very helpful, and smiley. Breakfast is good and more variety. If you plan to visit the tourist places of Padua, just walk around 10-20 mins to reach any places. Or you can take the tram, which the station is located just at the conner of hotel building. So convinence!

The room looks a bit old, but still clean. The lift is a bit slow and looks very old, but it is not the key problems. All in all, if I have chances to visit Padua again, I, no doubt, choose this hotel.
