“Fine enough...”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

Stayed for a two days of business and tourism (my 4 dots is really a rounded up 3.5). The staff was professional and helpful, and the wifi worked (and for my reservation, at least, was free). The location was a bit further from the center of town than I would have liked, but Padua is a beautiful and walkable city, so can't really complain.

Pros:
-Liked the modern design, clean.
-Nice, professional, helpful staff (fluent in English, which is great, since my Italian is poor).

Cons:
-Pillows were a bit hard for my taste.
-On the pricy side for what it is.

i spent a weekend at this really nice hotel. staff is very friendly and helpful. the hotel is located on a very quiet area so is very good if you want to relax while you are on holiday. the city centre is in walking distance so I would say that is the best thing. i would recommend this hotel to anyone. had a great time here. thank you for all the staff as well for their help.

Room Tip: good location, walking distance about 15 mins, helpful staff

The Methis is located near the city centre, yet this is still a good 15 minutes walking distance from the historic buildings. The hotel sits in the broad category of boutique/design, with colour themes for each floor. However, the furbishing, at least in our room, was rather unimpressive. The bathroom suffered most from this attempt at giving a 'fire' (the colour theme for the floor) atmosphere, giving the impression of awaiting a second layer of paint on those walls to even out the surface and colour. The shower area was ill-conceived with the glass panel still letting water flow onto the floor. Short supply of towels did not help either. There is free in-room wi-fi: unfortunately it was down on the last morning, right when you want to check-in online, and calling the front desk had apparently no effect on this.
Did not explore much of the service, but check-in and check-out were reasonably friendly, and it was easy to get a taxi at check-out. Small glitch at check-in with the reservation, not necessarily to be blamed on the hotel, although, once again, it would have been nice not to explain me the policy (I'll soon be able to write a textbook with all these lectures on hotel policies - beware that my policy may be not to come back for another lecture).
Overall, despite the spacious room (superior), I was not convinced by the overall atmosphere and value for money.

A stayed at this cute property, during a business trip in summer 2013. The hotel is a minimalist structure, located on a very quiet area of this delightful Northern Italian city. Still very close to the magnificent piazzas and famous monuments, to allow very good Italian quality of life. I recommend it as hidden gem, also for the charming hospitality of the owner and staff.

Nice colour themes for each floor of the hotel. Good rooms with shower - no bathtub. Good breakfast as well and you can park your car in a closed off parking at the back of the building. The city center is at walking distance.

I stayed only one night in a junior suite. The room was very very nice :) I love the modern furnishing, all solid white, and the jacuzzi bathtube. Service was excellent, location was great but I feel it is a bit overpriced (300euro/night).

Reviewed 6 July 2012

My son and I stayed here for two nights in late June. The hotel was fairly nice, though a bit strange. My room -- a junior suite decorated in solid white -- was very pretty, restful and comfortable. The enormous terrace and the splendid view of the river and Galileo's specola were unexpected but grand surprises. My son's room, however, was a little shabby. A standard room on the "blue floor," it was pretty small and had few of the amenities that I enjoyed in my suite. More importantly, the carpet, paint and furniture showed their age, as did the upholstery in the lobby and breakfast room.

The front desk staff was unfailingly helpful with directions and recommendations. They couldn't have been nicer or more welcoming. Breakfast was generous and lovely, too.
