We stayed at Cristallo Best Western Rovigo 3 years ago and decided to come back this year to Rovigo as a base to explore the Veneto region more fully. The Hotel is really well placed, the train & bus stations are just a few minutes’ walk away. We took the train as a day trip to Padua, the next day to Venice & then the next day to Ferrara – the trains are fast & economical. We then hired a car and went to the Medieval villages of Este, Montagnana, Monselice & Arqua Petrarca - there was easy parking in each of the villages and each of the villages had their own unique charm - absolutely worth a visit to each one! We loved coming home to the same room, we could return each day without the drama of checking in to a new town each day. The food at the Hotel restaurant is superb. The restaurant staff were attentive, the menu was diverse and the food was fresh and beautifully presented. The risotto was cooked to perfection, in fact every meal I had was very good! My husband and I have a business in Australia. We are lucky to be able to travel frequently, but we need great internet connection whilst away to keep the business ticking over. The Hotel has amazing wifi speed & connection, plus they have a work station & printer set up for guests’ complimentary use, this is a great bonus for travelling business people. The bed was huge and really comfortable, the room had lots of extra features that we loved that made our stay more enjoyable. Most of all everything was in good working order, the Hotel appears to have a great quality control system, as business people we notice good management that’s for sure! At night we’d go downstairs to the Guest Lounge areas and have Italian Aperitif, the complimentary finger food was lovely. There was always a staff member available who spoke English to answer any questions. I highly recommend this Hotel, we’ve stayed in probably around 100 Italian Hotels, I don’t take recommending a Hotel lightly.... Happy travelling, David & Karen - Brisbane, Australia
I will always remember breakfasts with great coffee, tasty cakes and super warm lady that was always helpful and nice. Hotel is relly good choice if you are on road trip. We are not the only ones that think like that bcs every evening there was new coach with tourists ;) Really good location - shop and train station is really close. Room was big, bright and comfortable. Bathroom clean, with everything you need. Wide range of tv channels. Free wi-fi. Really glad that we choose this place (family 2+2). I also liked staircase with chinese paintings on the wall.
Based on a total of 90 days spent at the Cristallo Hotel in Rovigo, Italy, I can confidently say that the hotel is fantastic and beyond expectations. I highly recommend the hotel for anyone staying in Rovigo or cities close-by. Here are my observations: - The Hotel environment is very nice - If you're a petrolhead, you'll love the walls as they have automotive sports written all over them. - The service is fantastic, everyone is very friendly and helpful. - The hotel is very clean, rooms are cleaned well on a daily basis. - The internet is superb, it is fantastic for streaming and making VoIP calls like Skype and Viber. - The bed, bed sheets and pillows are very comfortable and well chosen. - The air conditioning works well even in the summer period in July and August - experienced this myself. - Make sure you choose street view double rooms, they're the best. - Parking is available for free at the hotel entrance. - The hotel restaurant food and service are good maybe slightly pricy.
Ate dinner in the restaurant. It seemed that our presence there was an inconvenience for the waiter. People were waiting for food and the courses did not come out in order. Some did not come out at all. When we asked for dessert the waiter said he would bring the selection over. We waited over 20 minutes. The waiter had no intention of bringing the dessert to us. He arrogantly was finished with our table and did not return. Do not have dinner at this place!
We felt this was a comfortable basic hotel. The breakfast was excellent and gave us a good location to start touring the area from. Rovigo is nice but it is a city. We were looking for the smaller more quaint little places. Good place to base from for area touring.
Hotel is nice. I often stay there. The price is slightly high for the standard of the room but the service is great. Breakfast is very good. Easy to park and central. Would recomend it to anyonepassing through Rovigo
This hotel is very close to the rail station and not far from Rovigo downtown, you can easily and safely walk. My room was a superior, it was nice and big (three windows), clean and a wide choice of pillows. Remember to log in to the free of charge wifi in the lift because in the room you cannot find any piece of paper with the password, it is written in the lift only :)
This hotel has it's ups and downs. On the upside they do a nice breakfast (standard European buffet), the staff is very friendly and helpful. On the downside the rooms are in need of some modernization, the walls are a bit thin, and there is NO AC. This was an issue the first time I visiting (July) but not an issue this time (December). The hotel is on the older side, but it's still clean. The showers are a little surprising to an American (small pedestal shower). All and all not a bad place but not my first choice, thought your options are limited in Rovigo.
I was welcomed by an eager to help receptionist, which with exquisite means had me understand that my booking was for another day ... so he guided me in paying a difference and assigned me to a room, maybe 3 stars level for its look and extras (like a room kettle) but for sure not for the smell and bathroom: the mix of refurbished and original items would move the rating to maximum a 3- stars hotel. Breakfast was indeed fine, served in a large and sunny base level room next to a beautiful and large hotel hall. Average experience at last, probably not worth the price, but with some minor refurbishing this hotel could be brought up to the standard quality of a Best Western hotel.
