Best Western Premier Hotel Galileo Padova4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
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.
Located outside the city core with views from the upper floors. Rooms are large, comfortable and neat. Breakfast basic for 4 euros. Staff helpful. Great choice of TV channels with different languages and fast internet. Worth the money On the minus side city transport is restricted to this area.
I expect comfortable rooms in a Best Western Premier Hotel and I comfirm this in Padova. But the quality of the food and the service during the breakfast is very bad. This is absolutely not comparable with the decilicious quality of the breakfast I experienced in the Best Western Premier in Weimar a few years ago.
We had 5 nights in this hotel and it was exactly what we needed - breakfast was great and the rooms are large and comfortable. The gym in the hotel is clean and cool. The hotel restaurant is fantastic - we had one of our best meals here!
Friendly staff, excellent value, nice views from rooms, short distance to San Antonio Basilica and City Center. Ample and comfortable rooms, very fast Internet. Swimming pool and spa available for an extra fee.
A really nice room with balcony (recommend no. 204 on the corner of the building thus facing south (continuous sun) and views in two directions), a big bathroom (even if it did have the occasional rather bizarre and impractical Italian "mod" design feature), a great staff on the reception who were always eager to help, a really wonderful restaurant attached (one of the best meals I can remember!) and lovely pool with wellness service with a great garden for sunning oneself. All (so far) therefore really good and would recommend it 100% .... but do, please bear in mind my comment below. Even better on arrival that we were told that we were only being charged 4 Euros each for breakfast...(as opposed to 9-10 euros in Germany). But then the realities of Italy seriously hit us! It is perhaps unfortunate that I am old-fashioned and consider a gentlemanly, relatively peaceful breakfast as being the essence of a good hotel but as a teacher, I would have had a rather more relaxing experience in my school canteen at lunch-hour. To me, it was almost a "bun fight", in a room which, (while being highly practical for management and swift cleaning) had an ambience and welcome with less character than my school's exam hall. The staff worked really hard but found it tough going and if you turned up at 9.40 (20 minutes before the deadline at 10am), you were unlikely to get the food one wanted since they had run out. I accept that this may be a cultural problem and that Italians may not rate breakfast as important but I can only remember a worse breakfast experience in 40 years and that was in down the road in Verona. Suffice to say that seldom have I felt so much like a member of a cattle herd being driven off to market. The real problem here is that being 25 minutes' walk from the city centre, it is probably a 15 minute walk to the next best competition so there is not much one can do apart from accepting the inevitable. Come on, Best Western! You are seriously letting down a) an otherwise great hotel and b) the efforts of your very competent staff. You can do so much better here!
