Best Western Plus Hotel Galileo Padova

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed at the Best Western Galileo in Padua for a business trip and have to say it was ok. Good things in favour are the ambient of the hotel and the fact that it’s just 20 min walk from the city historical centre. Decent but not great breakfast and good service overall. Bad things are the noise from other rooms. The hotel itself is very quiet but on a 4 star hotel you shouldn’t have to listen to the shower and ventilation from the room next door. Also and I don’t why nobody actually changed this but the TV that’s it’s literally opposite the bed attached to the wall, has a clock that emits a strong blue light which when you are asleep really affects you. Once again not something you should expect on a 4 star hotel. It is however good value for what it offers so overall I will give a 3 star.

Выражаю огромную благодарность администрации отеля за снятия брони без штрафных санкций менее чем за 24 часа, по семейным обстоятельствам. ( хотя в брони через Booking было условие :- если отмена менее чем за 24 часа снимается вся сумма проживания отеля за 2 суток). Летаю в Италию часто, и обязательно остановлюсь в этом отеле. До новых встреч I express huge gratitude to administration of hotel for removals of armor without penalties less than in 24 hours, on family circumstances. (though in a reservation through Booking there was a condition:-if cancellation less than in 24 hours all sum of accommodation of hotel in 2 days is withdrawn). I fly to Italy often, and I will surely stay in this hotel. Prior to new meetings

Good room, good bar and restaurant, about 20 minute walk to city center. Kind, attentive staff. Would recommend to you, and would stay there again. Nothing outstanding, but a solid thumbs up, as I could find nothing to criticize.

OK, this hotel has several good things going for it. Firstly, it is just outside the adorable downtown area of Padua. Easy to get to. It was clean and had everything you needed. The only frustration was the ability to change Euro bills into coins which were necessary to tip and use the bus etc. The staff appeared to care less if you couldn't get change. Get change in the restaurant on site. It had good food, service and delightful carafes of good house wine (Malbec). The bar was also a good place for a libation and gathering with friends. Rooms were very clean and if it had a little better lighting in the bathroom, it would be even better. Bed was very comfortable and room was quiet. All good.

It was an okay hotel, although you can hear a lot of noise from the other rooms. Be aware that the hotel charges 7 Euros per head to use their pool, which is often not useable due to water aerobics classes. The fitness center is okay, but 3 of the 6 machines were broken when we were there and the space was limited as oddly personal trainers were there with clients, a bit irksome.

Very nice hotel with a beautiful garden. The rooms are clean and big! the hotel is located near the shopping streets (10 minutes walk). Modern hotel and good service from the reception. Recommended if you are going to Padua!

We took the last room, the premium suite. We were tired and just needed a shower and a bed. Its like a full apartment with a big living room and terrace. breakfast was great and i can fully recommend. Price a little on the higher side but being death tired we enjoyed.

We were touring (by car) in Northern Italy and chose this hotel because it was easy to get to from the Autostrada, had free parking and was a 10-15 minute walk from the station (for getting to Venice). As it was, not only did it tick all these boxes but it went beyond our expectations. It is a modern (slightly dull looking) building but the facilities are very good. Our room was big, spotless and very well equipped and comfortable. For those that worry about it, the wifi worked well. The breakfast was a bargain at 4 euros (excellent choice buffet) and the in house restaurant perfectly acceptable. The service was excellent (and fluent in many languages, including English). Venice was very easy to get to (8.30 euros return) with plenty of trains. But Padova itself was also well worth spending time in - the city centre is about 20 mins easy walk from the hotel - with the Giotto frescoes, excellent art galleries and museums and Cafe Pettrochi to visit (to name but a few). Our deal also included the use of the gym/pool. Great location. Great value.

Rather than haul your luggage over bridges, down narrow crowded streets, and onto a boat taxi; consider staying at this great Best Western hotel where you can walk or take a short taxi ride to the train station and visit Venice. Then, return and enjoy a genuine 4 star hotel experience including a complete spa (sauna, whirlpool, pool, steam room, massage, pedicure, etc.). My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it!

We have stayed in this hotel for 6 nights. it was great, There are underground parking, 24 hours gym, they do also have a cafe / bar place. Very close to the train station (15-20 minutes walk) and shopping center (30 minutes) walk. i would stay again in this hotel, and recommended as well... Great Staff at the reception, very prompt friendly and helpful.
