20161130-ROVIGO_HotelCristallo

I had the chance to stay here in late November 2016, and my first impact was the kind welcome of a nice receptionist, which with exquisite means had me understand that my booking was for another day … so he guided me in paying a difference and assigned me to a room, maybe 3 stars level for its look and extras (like a room kettle) but for sure not for the smell and bathroom: the mix of refurbished and original items would move the rating of this place to maximum a 3 stars hotel.

Breakfast was indeed fine, served in a large and sunny basement-level room next to a beautiful and large hotel hall.

At last i need to say i had an “Average” experience here, probably not worth the list price, but with some minor refurbishing this hotel could be brought up to the standard quality of a Best Western hotel.

My Suggestion is to pass by this place using last minute or season offers.

I was passing by Udine along a business trip and needed a place for an overnight stay: Found this one for a good price on booking.com very near to a place I needed to visit for business, and I was amazed to be put in a double room as singles where sold out: 4 star hotel room with ancient furniture next to a 4 star level bathroom in a recently restructured rural house! Breakfast was instead “in line” with a standard b&b treatment, but the keeper was so kind in welcoming me in late evening and then serving me the breakfast personally. One of the key features of the place is being able to enter back the building at any time with a practical NFC card which opens the room as well. November 29th, 2016 Marco Piagentini

I decided to pass a night in this nice Hotel as a last minute booking because booking.com offered a very interesting last minute price.

With my surprise I was welcomed by a very kind night keeper by 10 PM, I was immediately “guided” to my room, and then she offered to open me at any time I was pleased to be back.

The room was clean and “Really” 3 stars level, with no old style” items mixed with refurbished ones at all, which is typical for old hotels in this area.

I will be back for sure in most of my North->South business trips as the hotel is not far from the Highway and Padova itself.

Let me just remark once again the kindness and professional attitude of the night keeper which was superior compared to many 4 stars hotels I visited in my life!
