Situated at the center of Padua, small, old hotel, simple yet elegant. Very good breakfast. Friendly staff. Room size is ok. Bathroom size is decent but shower is small. Easy access to plaza and shopping. Right in front of the basilica of st. anthony. Highly recommended.

The Hotel Donatello is clean, comfortable, and in a great location for visiting this small and lovely city. It is typical of many family owned and operated hotels through outage world in that that staff is very helpful, well-informed and pleasant to interact with. My room was basic and served my needs for the 5 days and nights I was...

The hotel is located exactly in front of the basilica of Saint Anthony, it's very nice and near to every part of the city. The room was ordered and clean. The personal were very gentle and kind. When I will come back to Padua I definitely would return here. Very recommended!

Excellent food and service. The staff were so friendly and helpful. A group of us went in for pre dinner party drinks and lovely little pizzas were served along with the crisps. We had lunch and dinner there on a few occasions and were very pleased with everything. We would recommend it

By the way, on the website of this basilica you will find a unique webcam showing the tomb of the Saint 24 h/day! The location of the hotel is great but from several rooms, including mine at the front side, the view on the basilica...

Just spent a week here. Hotel and room were spotless. You are within walking distance of all the main attractions and restaurants. Tram stop 3 minute walk away for easy access to train station. If you time it properly, you can be in Venice in 40 minutes from the hotel. Staff were very friendly. Highly recommended.

We spent in the hotel Donatello 3 nights and we really enjoyed our visit. The hotel is situated in the central part of the city with easy access to all mayor attractions.
