I stayed at the Hotel Mioni Royal San because it partners with the RCI Timeshare system, and used it for my home base while I was in Italy for a week. Located about 13 Km from Padova (Padua) - and literally right next door to a train station - it's the perfect location: close to many major cities, but just far enough away to be relaxing and tranquil.
The hotel amenities are all first class - the rooms are the epitome of clean, modern Italian design. Roomy and comfortable, and impeccably clean. The staff is friendly and helpful, and most speak excellent English. The food is delicious - 4 course gourmet dinners and wonderful European breakfast buffets. The raspberry torte alone is worth a trip this amazing hotel and spa.
Oh, and the spa! An amazing array of amenities and services are available, and the pool is actually fed and warmed by a mineral hot spring. It's perfect for a leisurely after-breakfast swim before heading out to do some shopping or sight seeing.
Padova is just minutes away by both bus and train, Venezia is a mere 45 minutes away by train (and only about 10 euros round trip), and other major cities like Milano and Firenze (Florence) are an easy day trip. [Note: The Italian train system is great when it works, but think twice before taking the last train anywhere - unannounced delays and cancellations are fairly common - I was stranded at the Verona station and missed my first night at this wonderful hotel because I planned to take the last train out of Milan, and missed my connecting train as the result of a delay coming down from Zurich.]
Tranquil gardens with lots of shady places to relax. Not much local nightlife, so if you're looking for the hustle and bustle of a major city, this might not be the place for you. But if you're looking for the "real" Italy and warm, friendly people then Montegrotto and the Mioni are the place for you.
This is a great location and hotel to use as a home base if you want to see several places in one trip, but don't want to move hotels every few days.
