“intimate space and great location”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

I've stayed at a few other hotels in Padova as I travel for business; this was my first time at Belludi 37. first off, the location is superb - walking distance to the center, prato delle valle, basilica santantonio...
I spent five nights at Belludi, the first three in one room, and the last two in another. the reason for a change was due to an unusual smell in the first room, which wasn't too bad the first night, but progressively got worse during my stay. the hotel staff was extremely responsive and friendly, and promptly offered to move me to another room (which they were kind enough to move everything while I was at work during the day). the first room was carpeted, and had a nicely (and by the look, recently) remodeled bathroom. the second room, a bit larger, had hard floors, and a bathroom that was a bit smaller and not as nice as the first. both rooms had comfortable beds, adequate storage space and pretty decent wifi. the breakfast room, on the second floor, was always well-stocked with a nice selection of breads, pastries, yogurt, fruit, juice, etc plus the daily offer of fresh eggs (made to order).
the other nice surprise was the driving accessibility of the hotel. as it is closer into the center, my italian coworkers had some concern about morning traffic to and from the autostrada. for the entire work week I was there, we never experienced any significant traffic delays or problems.
overall this is a nice little hotel with a very friendly staff in a great location.

From the Moment my wife and I arrived at belludi 37, we felt we were special.
I had booked three nights and two night's in another Hotel in Venice.
The front Desk are very Helpful,our luggage was taken to our room, Room very clean, you can here the City waking up in the Morning 7am onward but, we didn't find that a problem.
I've Visited Padova since 2003 (11 Times) and used other B & B, 'Hotels', but belludi 37 is by far the Best.
Breakfast from 7am to 10am, Excellent selection.
Our room was bigger than I normally find in Hotel's.
All the staff at this Hotel are very friendly and Made our stay more enjoyable.

ps; My wife didn't want to travel to another Hotel, so we stayed the 5 night's in belludi 37.

Room Tip: I looked up this Hotel in Google maps and knew where it was, so it is easy to find. also we used a t...

In addition to all other positive commentaries I'd like to add two more things:
1) the hotel owners were kind to let us park our car at their premises until the evening when we returned from a trip around the city having purchased the Padova Card so we were able to move to Piazza Rabin parking that was free for Padova Card owners (thus saving 15 euro/night)
2) when we had trouble leaving the parking (it was Sunday and the person on the speakerphone didn’t speak English, and we had somehow to report our Padova Card number in order to leave the parking), Andrea (one of the hotel owners) had a talk with the parking maintenance company and their representative came to Piazza Rabin to manually assist our exit from the parking.

Room Tip: The room with a view to Basilica of St.Anthony (the one with a small balcony) is worth its price.

Hotel Belludi 37 has no sign and the entry is inconspicuous, so it may take a bit of a hunt to find it in the maze of narrow, cobbled one-way streets of old Padua. But it's well worth the effort. Our friends had recommended it so highly that we were skeptical--if anything, they underpraised it. The front desk staff are all terrific and speak about 8 languages.
We were treated handsomely from the moment the door opened: we got there early and weary after a dawn arrival in Venice and a long drive in pouring rain; Thomas the charming desk clerk made us comfortable in the sitting area and brewed us fresh espresso while the finishing touches were made to our room. From then on, the enthusiastic staff made us welcome, acting as concierge and providing whatever we requested, from restaurant reservations to sightseeing recommendations and travel directions.
Our room was large (bath was small but serviceable), clean, and sleek, with hardwood floors and streamlined contemporary furniture. Our only complaint was a lack of good reading lamps.
The breakfast buffet offered good variety and quality. The public spaces are compact but adequate. Wifi was reliable.
The location can't be beat for visitors interested in historic Padua. You can walk nearly everywhere or take the tram around the corner. You'll want to reserve parking space if you arrive by car, as the tiny lot accommodates only about 4 cars. Try to plan your trip so you can leave the car parked most of the time--parking in Padua is nearly impossible, so you'll want a car only for day trips (Verona, Vicenza, and the Lake Garda region are worth a day each, and Venice is worth several days).

Perfect location, great staff, clean rooms, delicious breakfast... What else could you want? Highly recommend the Belludi. Be sure to make an appointment to see the Giotto frescoes at the Scrovegni chapel.Great location for day trips to Vicenza and Venice. You can take the tram right in front of the hotel direct to the train station. Be sure to buy the Padovacard.

First I have to say, I LOVED Padua and wished we could've stayed longer than the one night. Belludi 37 was a surprisingly good find. Great location, excellent owner operator. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed. The only downside was the size of the bathroom, but hey, we could live with that. There were some nice touches to the hotel such as the little chill out lounge. The breakfast was one of the best we came across on our travels throughout Europe. The only downside for me was no balcony. The windows provided the most incredible views of Padua though and I would not hesitate in recommending this lovely place.

The staff are most welcoming and accommodating, great breakfast, clean, stylish and comfortable rooms, excellent location and value. Our small family stayed two nights and enjoyed our trip to Padua thoroughly. I would highly recommend the Padovacard which covers museum entrances, public transport and parking. Tram stop is right around corner from hotel and although the walk to all sites was very short, we found ourselves enjoying the tram often.
