Budget accomodation

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 17, 2011

I live in Padova so I never used it personally but some friends used before. They call themself a hostel but my infos are that it is a quite nice place. They have double rooms with private bathroom for 50-60 Euros breakfast included and single room for 30-40 euros. They apply a cheaper rate for exdented stay, ask them if you need it.
The location is at about 15-20 minutes bus ride from the center. The bus stop is close to the hotel.
If you travel with a car they have a free private parking.

Cheap accommodation in Padova

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 30, 2007

Padua is often recommended as a cheap alternative for visitors to Venice to stay, as accommodation is notoriously expensive there. (Although there's travel and time costs to consider!)

So when I was looking for accommodation in Padua, I was surprised to find that it didn't appear to be that much cheaper than in Venice-

I chose this place mainly as it was one of the cheapest!- 33 euros per night for a single room with en suite bathroom and including buffet breakfast (2007)!.

It's just on the outskirts of Padua, but the regular bus number 3 provides easy access to/from the city. (about 10 mins ride)

A short bike ride away too - Cycling is very popular in Padua! (you can hire bikes quite easily)

Casa a Colori is part of a social Co-Operative, belonging to the network of Villagio Solidale.

It provides cheap accommodation for up to 70 people in single, twin or multiple bedded rooms, each room has bathroom and shower.

A lift takes you to the 3rd floor of the building, where the reception is located. I was given useful info about transport etc and a map.

Bus tickets can be purchased for 1 euro (valid for 70 minutes)
Internet - 1 euro for 30 mins.
There is also a laundry service.

Breakfast is included (buffet style - bread, jams, juices, brioches.

Tea, coffee, hot chocolate etc. from free machine - (surprisingly good coffee!)

Other meals can be booked at reception.

There are also a couple of drinks and snack machines near the reception.

Mini market near hotel.

Pizza restaurants 300metres, near the bus stop

My room (8) was basic but clean and comfortable - I was pleased there was an electric fan.

There were twin beds, wardrobe, table and chairs.

Bathroom with WC, shower, basin, bidet and towels.

I was surprised as to how quiet this place was, although it was full, it wasn't a rowdy place - well at least during my visit.

Unique Quality: I had a nice view of a tree and gardens from my window.

One problem was a 12 midnight 'curfew' if you were stopping out after 12 You had to notify reception.

I hadn't intended stopping out late, but found a free concert taking place, which I had to leave early to get back in time.

I found this to be great value for money though.

I paid 33 euros per night, for a single room including breakfast.

The Padua card covers bus travel, so it was quite easy to get in and out of Padua from here. It was quite nice catching the bus with the locals - getting an insight into daily life.

I think You could rent bikes here too. - If not there is a rental place near the station.

Directions: South East Padua.
From the station, take No 3 bus to Crocisso bus stop, from the church walk along Via del Commissario 300m hotel on right.
