You will not be sorry to stay at the Grand Italia, we are train travelers so the location to the the station is fantastic, although when we first sure that the hotel was immediately opposite to the station we were a little concerned that it might be an unpleasant stay with regards to noise, but our room was peaceful.
And the room was enormous, for a minute I thought we were back in Australasia, king size bed, large desk , frig, keyboard for free internet connection, large bathroom with bathrobes and slippers, all for a very small price including buffet breakfast.
The breakfast room was very pleasant to go to each morning, it is fresh looking, nicely lit, tables with white stiff tablecloths set with silver cutlery and fine china, very grand indeed. There were plenty of choices for breakfast, coffee of your choice, quality tea, cereals, breads, pastries, cakes, fruit, bacon, eggs, cold cuts, cheeses, etc.
The staff were always polite and helpful. The hotel is a short 15 minute walk into the main centre of Padova, 10 minute walk to Cappella degli Scrovegni, and Venice is a 30 minute train trip away. We had a wonderful time in Padova, there is lots to see, we made full use of our Padova Card during the stay.
