We stayed here at the end of October. The hotel is a 15 minute walk from the Padova train station. The main purpose of our trip was to see Venice but hotels were too expensive within Venice. The train ride from Padova to Venezia Santa Lucia is 30 if you take the direct, or 45 if you take the Regional train. The hotel was also located in a really nice neighbourhood. The area was filled with University students during the day, so it always felt safe. The breakfast provided was excellent, with a large amount of variety. All the staff member were helpful and friendly.
If you want to see Padova this hotel also works well. All the sights of the city are within a 30 minute walk, and the Scrovigni chapel was only 10 minutes away.
The one main drawback of this hotel was that wifi was not included in the price and did not work in the room. We were charged 10 euro for each of the computers that we had with us. Other than this the hotel was excellent however.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel alla Fiera is strategically situated in front of the Fiera Campionaria, Padova's preeminent trade fair venue. It is located near the train station, the Courts of Justice, some of the city's prestigious university departments and close to the Cappella degli Scrovegni, which contains frescos by Giotto that is one of the most important masterpieces of italian art. At only 2km from Padova's eastern motorway exit (Padova-est) and a few minutes on foot from the historic centre of the city, Hotel alla Fiera is the perfect base for your holiday, for your business trip or for your studies. It is a particularly convenient location for the start of bicycle trips either within the city or its environs. The '70s styled building situated on two floors, without a lift, has a homely vintage feel, where cleanliness is our priority. Guests are welcomed by friendly professional staff that are available 24 hours to give clients any kind of information to help them make the most of their stay both at the Hotel alla Fiera and in Padova. We give directions, advice on restaurants, shopping, day trips to neighbouring cities such as Venice, bus and train timetables, as well as information on exhibitions and other interesting things to see and do nearby. We love to look after you and make you feel as at ease as if the air of your own home was not too far away. The smell of coffee and warm croissants will greet you in the morning either in the bar or in the garden in the summer, areas where guests can also rest and relax during the day or in the evening, sipping tea or perhaps an aperitif. We look forward to welcoming you. ... more less
