Historical Traveller Reviews of Belludi 37 Hotel
Thank you for a wonderful stay!!!!from aroundtheworld40
Great location, nice hotelfrom Beti_Mal
I liked this hotel because it had character. It was run by a lovely couple who were very welcoming and chatty, as were all the staff at the Belludi. I would recommend staying here if you are going to Padua.
It was easy to reach on the bus from the station. Jump on any bus headed for the Basilica and it’s just around the corner. We found the ‘Santo’ stop to be the most convenient but anywhere around here would be ok.
With regard to any negative comments made in earlier reviews, I would have to disagree. The bathroom could possibly have benefited from some fresh paint, as is the case in many places but it was still very clean, tidy and fully functional – not a problem at all. If in doubt, ask for room 106 as this was fine.
Hotel was okay........took forever to find itfrom Nalacalli
Thought the room was pretty boring and uninspired (even though I like the IKEA look). Very musty smelling and you could hear the staff downstairs talking which didn't help much.
The shower was okay...a little small and the chalking was pretty mildewed and an easy fix to remove and replace just to make it look nicer. Bathroom sink seemed like it was going to fall off. No hairdryer in the room. Had to ask for it the next morning and the staff member was new and had no idea where it was but he finally found it.
No elevator but the climb was manageable to the second floor. Staff was very helpful that night and in the morning. We had to leave by 7:30 so they had breakfast set up by 7:15 even though we indicated we wanted breakfast by 7:00. Breakfast was pretty good. Again, typical fare........crossiants, salami, ham, cereal, coffee......etc
Paid 75 Euros for a single and 125 Euros for a double (bed was a good size and seemed clean. Additional 10 E for parking the car.
Can't say I would recommend this hotel but again my experience was marred by the lateness of the arrival and really am picky about musty smells........
Great central locationfrom janpki
Too expensive for what it providesfrom endless2007
Loved the hotelfrom hdr
The bedrooms are large and the bathroom large enough. The grouting on the shower and around the bathroom could do with updating. The absence of a lift was no problem as the staff were only too happy to carry luggage up and down the stairs. The location of the hotel is superb, within walking distance of all the main sites and some lovely winebars and restaurants.
This is how hotels should be - very welcoming, friendly, great service - we will definitely be returning.

excellent, and quite a bargainfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I found all the lauditory reviews on this site very much to the point (and the only critical one highly amazing). We stayed in the Belludi three days in august 2007, were received in a very helpful way, and found the room (nr. 209, I think, front side, three persons, 145 euros a night) above expectations. The room consisted of two rooms en suite, one with a double bed and one with a single. Floors were sleekly parqueted. I have slept in quite a few four stars that had smaller rooms. It is possible that we were lucky with the size of the room, but I don’t think so. The hotel has been recently completely refurbished and even smelled new, and that went for everything else, including the bathroom, which was large and modern. There is a small car park behind the hotel (extra costs ten euros). One of the car boxes contained bikes, which are free for the guests. Biking in Paova is not a bad idea at all, since the town is in the flat Po area. The only mystery about this hotel is that is doesn’t have at least three stars. I guess that is because of the fact that there is no elevator. But then, the hotel has only two story’s. The stairs were wide and marbled. Another quibble you could have is breakfast. A very small breakfast room has been hung between the two floors, so breakfast will have to brought up to your room most of the time. And, to complete anything that could be critical, I found it amazing that in a bathroom so large that there was place for a trolly with towels, and where there was a lot of free space, there was no room to put anything down, not even your toothpaste, because of the sliding rims of the washbasin. The shower was hung a bit clumsily. But breakfast itself was fine, much better than is normally the case in Italy, and was included in the price. I made reservations by e-mail months in advance, and received a courteous and friendly reply. Speaking of service. A few days before we went to Italy, I asked the hotel owner, again by e-mail, if he could make reservations for a good restaurant in Padua. I had it within half an hour. The restaurant – Trattoria del Prato, on Prato delle Valle) was excellent (although I found the wine mediocre) and not expensive. The night before we left we found three bottles of wine (excellent this time) and emptied two of them the same night. That’s what happens when you are with three men. A few days later, after we left, we discovered that we had left the spare keys of the car at the hotel desk. When I arrived home, I found an e-mail with the question where they could be sent. I offered to pay for the costs by credit card, but that offer was – courteously again – declined. So, instead of paying, I consider this review a thank you for exceptional service in an excellent hotel.

Top Local Tips for Padua
the screvegni chapel You must reserve to see this,and it's worth it. You can make a reservation at the Tourist Information office in the center city. Re the Padua Card, we bought one on advice of our guidebook but it didn't pay off for us. Consider it carefully before purchasing to be sure it will be worth it for what you want to do. Try to visit surrounding villages and towns such as Chioggia (Il Gato restaurant), Treviso, Vicenza and Cittadella (the fort in Cittadella is closed on Tuesdays). These are wonderful and not crowded with tourists.
A fine city The nearby square of the Basilica is surrounded by cafes offering decent pastas, pizzas and lots of gelato. The only tourists seem to be religious ones, wearing the scarves of their tour company and dutifully following their guides into the church. Nuns in flowing white robes ride by on their bicycles. You can buy a St Anthony's candle, pastry or hideous icon at one of the many carts around the plaza. The town is otherwise dominated by the students who study at the ancient university, and who are responsible for the preponderance of little cafes, bookstores and interesting shops. It is a city of wonderful architecture, brilliant intellectual history (Gallileo was at the university) and magnificant art. The "must see" locale is the chapel decorated by Giotto, a narrative of the lives of Mary and her Son, complete with miracles and everyday pleasures such as depictions of sheep nibbling on herbs. We hope it served its purpose: to redeem the donor's father from the torments of hell, where Dante had placed him for the sin of usury.
stay here instead of Venice Padova is just a 20 minute train ride from Venice and has a great nightlife and restaurant scene. Better value and gets you away from the crowds you find in Venice
