We stayed at this lovely little hotel for 4 nights recently. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the whole place is spotlessly clean. Our room was on the third floor at the back of the property and was quiet, quite spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was small but perfectly adequate – plenty of hot water, towels etc.
Breakfast was included in the cost and was served in a lovely light, modern room on the first floor. There were only five tables in the small breakfast room but we didn’t have any problems with getting one each morning. Breakfast was good and consisted of fruit juices, cereals, yogurts, ham, salami, cheese slices, hard-boiled eggs, a selection of pastries and cake and lovely little bread rolls. They will also make toast for you as well as serving hot drinks (the coffee was divine). A good range of spreads and preserves are also laid out.
They have a quirky little lift that just about fits 2 people in (or one person with a suitcase). You have to keep your finger pressed on the button until you reach the required floor. Felt a bit weird at first but you soon get used to it!
We returned to our room on the third day and found a lovely surprise had been left in the room for us – a bottle of red wine – what a nice touch!
Our only slight niggle was that they had a major problem with the internet for most of our stay, so hubby got a little frustrated about that. They did waive the internet charge, though, which was appreciated.
This was our first visit to Padua and we definitely feel that we chose well with Albergo Verdi. The location is lovely – just a stones throw from the astronomical clock which stands majestically overlooking the lively Piazza dei Signori. To reach the hotel from this piazza – walk through the archway under the clock and through the leafy, cobbled area. Pass the kiosk selling newspapers etc. and several benches to the right then veer to the left into an open, rectangular cobbled area, where you will see a café and a bar at the far end (with outside seating during summer months, we’re told) - Albergo Verdi is just to the right of these, tucked under the arched colonnade. We actually got lost trying to find the hotel (hubby’s iphone was running out of charge and we didn’t have a paper map..) but we were saved by two lovely girls – one a Thai student and the other a Padua girl. They didn’t even know each other but they both walked with us right to the door of the hotel. Angels, both of them. This set the tone for the rest of our stay – we found Padua to be the friendliest city we have ever visited. Without exception, every single person we encountered was friendly, helpful and, well, just lovely!
