Does not look much from the exterior but this was easily one of the best hotels we stayed in as we cycled around northern Italy. Contemporary style, large rooms and excellent service. Breakfast delivered to your rooms in the morning. We had a wonderful balcony overlooking cobbled streets and Cathedral and were entertained by the most amazing lightning storm later. Excellent value, the only reason why it is only 2* we guess is that it has no restaurant or bar - all are within 2 mins walk from hotel. Staff were so helpful and accommodating.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Belludi 37 Hotel

Thank you for a wonderful stay!!!!

from aroundtheworld40
After a long trip, finally arriving at the Hotel and finding that it was all we had expected and more was such a pleasant surprise. At times skeptical of booking without looking, we have had bad experiences in the past, however, the quaint, yet lovely decor and clean appearance allowed us to have a great night sleep and after a great Italian breakfast we were truly ready to start our trip. Our thanks to Marco for the great advice on what to visit while in Padua, and especially on where to eat, and thank you Oscar for all your help as well. You two made all the difference. St. Antonio is just around the corner. We were so happy to have been so close to everything we wanted to see and do. Our stay at the Hotel was pleasant and we would surely return and reccommend it to our friends who are planning to visit Italy. A great place to stay if you are planning to take the train to Venice as well. That's what we did and the bus stop is so close and you can go all the way to the train station from there. We enjoyed it. Overall one of the better Hotels we stayed in while in Italy. We'll come again! Keep up the good work guys!

Even though we do not appreciate the extremely concepted design we found this Belludi a perfect example of the meaning "IKEA friendly". It represents a small nice catalogue of IKEA pieces and it is funny to find objects you saw in your neighborood IKEA great store used as a masterpiece of your hotel room. Breakfast is ok and cleaniness auch. All in all it is a funny experience and overall a hotel with few good requests on the market. P.S. Beware the noise of the rear side.

Great location, nice hotel

from Beti_Mal
We stayed at the Belludi for one night in early September. The location of the hotel was great, just a stone’s throw from the Basilica. The rooms were spacious, modern and clean and the breakfast was good.

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 it

from Nalacalli
Well to start off.........we didn't arrive until almost 11 pm so not a good start. Took us almost 1 hour trying to find it. We basically used it as a stop off point for the night before leaving Venice Airport. Stay was pretty short but have to tell you I wouldn't stay there again.

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 location

from janpki
Booked via email through italian tourism website ([--]). Very quick answer, easy to book. We drove there. Nightmare driving in Padua, drove past hotel few times despite SatNav as it still said Hotel Buenos Aires on the sign outside. Friendly staff. Room minimalist meets IKEA. Bathroom could do with new appliances. Breakfast spartan continental but ok. Perfect location to explore city on foot. Just next door to St Anthony's Basilica. Price OK for general expensive city.

Too expensive for what it provides

from endless2007
They claim to be more than what they really are. The desk clerk was totally unhelpful and unable to answer simple queries (kept advising us to ask at the tourist office next day). Breakfast was poor. The price was too high for what they offered and they did not have a real idea of what to do about that . We intended to stay longer but left after one and moved to a much superior hotel (the Plaza) where we paid 150 euro for a superior room and excellent service.

Loved the hotel

from hdr
We stayed at this hotel in August and were impressed with the service and staff who couldn't do enough to please.
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.

t come back

from ucrio
Quite small and above all no elevators. It should be checked by the authority about that. Is it possible that in Italy could exist hotle with no lifting devices? Anyway our stay there was not easy for that and other reasons, e.g. the unpolite behaviour of the staff. Rooms are wide enough but bathrooms are dirty. The wiew on the rear is terrible and it is quite more awful than it would depending on the air conditioning devices installed by the owners themselves. A place i don't suggest.

excellent, and quite a bargain

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Belludi is right in the old centre of Padua, on Via Beata Belludi. Sant’ Antonio (not the same church as the Duomo, by the way) is, with its many domes and four cloisters at fifty metres, and partially visible from the front side of the hotel. Prato delle Valle, an immense square, is in the opposite direction at two hundred. Everything else is at walking distance too, except the railway station, which is situated, necessarily, like everywhere in medieval Italian towns, in the newer parts, on the outskirts of the old centre. A stiff walk will get you there in twenty five minutes. Take a cab, I would say. The Scrovegni Chapel (with Giotto’s famous fresco’s) is at twenty minutes, everything else at five or ten. From the train station there is a regular service for Venice, and the ride will take you twenty minutes (and a few euros). There you will wind up bang in front of all the vaporetto’s. Beautiful Vicenza is even closer by. Padova itself is to my mind an underrated Italian city. Lovely squares are spinkled all over the place. And don’t miss Altichiero’s fresco’s next to Sant’ Antonio, in St. Georges chapel, and Menabuio’s in the baptistery next to the Duomo. Both are in some ways just as special as Giotto’s in the Arena.
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.

Does not look like the pictures in thesite

from xixxoRome
I could understand that many hotels try to appear more fashionable in the pictures they show in their sites but this one is the worst. Rooms are very small and bathrooms are quite old. The staff tries to be kind but they can't hide they have no experience in their work. The view from the rear (if it happens that the room assigned faces it) is definitely awful because of the air conditioning devices. I can't suggest this experience to anyone.

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
