Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

The hotel got my recommendation for a stopover for business or holiday if you are looking for perfectly clean and modern environment. There's nothing much negative to say, but be aware that the taxi into the city hits your pocket with about 10 Euros one way or 5 minutes of your lifetime. There is nothing much to see in the neighborhood, so have a comic with you, please your wife or use the WLan which works perfectly. The service in this hotel is professional, young and friendly.

Stayed for just one night at this hotel, before driving off to engelberg in switzerland with our group of 20 students... upon arrival, cold reception by staff at counter.Modern rooms with good amenities. Rainshower in bathroom really nice. Airconditioning little complicated, so dialled reception.No reply. Had to go down at midnight to the reception to get help, as there was no housekeeping or staff to help. Nice structure, small lobby and lift.Lift extremely slow. Breakfast was a good spread.
Had an Indian corner as 2 more Indian groups were staying at the same time. surprised to see masala chai packets available for bkf...good touch. Since we had our own coach travelling wth us, it was very convenient as otherwise hotel far away from main Venice area.

Stayed here for a night on return from Venice. An imposing structure. Modern and clean rooms.
Wifi available only in the lobby. The staff were courteous and the breakfast was okay.

The shower was quite awkward. It took me around 10-15 mts to get the right temperature. The water was either too hot or too cold. If you have kids, please make sure that you set the right temp. as it might harm them!! My girl just escaped!!!

Having thought that it was a problem only in our room, i checked with the reception guy. This was what he had to say "we are so sorry madam, i know that its a problem"!! Don't understand why don't they do any thing to fix this!!!

This hotel locate 10mins by car from old town.
This hotel's room size & design are all slightly different.
Our room's air-con was not working so we had to change the room to different room.
Luckily we were allocated the bigger room however the shower room had no privacy as it's see-through glass so other person could see me showering from the room.

It's so bizzer experience.

The shower room's tap control was extremely difficult as it took 10mins to make it to right temperature.
The water came out either very cold or very hot.

The breakfast was also nice as basic stuff were there but don't use restaurant toilet as you won't be able to lock the door.(again badly designed)
While I was in a cubicle, somebody open the door and I was really embarrassed.

This hotel is used by Chinese travel companies as you will see them there.

TV has only 5 Italian channels.

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful as they kindly thought us how to get to Venice from the hotel.
Be aware that the bus is every an hour after8pm.

I recommend this hotel because we paid very reasonable price with breakfast + free underground parking and it's easy to get to Venice by bus & train.
(Be aware that the bus from train st to hotel is every an hour after 8pm).

I've been to B4 Padua several times over the last two years, and I must say that its quality is getting progressively worse. The personnel is changing often and the professional level is worsening. The maintenance is not adeuqate and despite still the building is fascinating, the perception of welcoming and customer care is getting weaker.
Restaurant/bar service stops at 23:00 (so, no late lunch, please...), satellite tv has been discontinued, wifi/internet connection sometimes is not working. What a same such a scenic hotel is going through a tight cost savign time, with related quality worsening.
