Is this hotel fine for our purposes in Padua?

Jump to last reply

We’re starting to book our hotels for our upcoming late Aug-Sept trip to Italy. We’re staying the first two nights in Padua, for the primary purpose of seeing Giotto’s works in the Scrovegni Chapel. We’re thinking about the Grand Italia Hotel near the train and bus stations. Here’s the reason. We fly into VCE around noon, and plan to catch the SITA bus to Padua. Even with flight delays and customs we should get to Padua by mid to late afternoon. We’ll most likely be jet lagged so we won’t want to do much that evening.

I’m planning on booking the reservation for Scrovegni for the next morning. Afterwards, we'll take a bus into town center to spend the rest of the day there. We’ll leave early the following morning to spend the day in Verona, before the evening opera. So, we arrive by bus, leave by train, and have access to the town bus with this hotel location.

Here are my thoughts. I can’t find much about this hotel (looks great on the website, and price is reasonable). I’ve read that the train station area is ugly and uninspiring, but if it’s safe and if we aren’t doing much in the immediate area, is it the ideal location to transportation? Is it a valid and logical reason to book here?
