I realised while looking through my photos, that I have been staying in a lot of hotels. A job hazard. But we do find some gems now and then. Last year, about a week to 10 days after my stay at VIE Hotel, we were again in Padua for the Antique Motor show. This time, we chose to stay at Hotel Sagittario which basically means Sagittarius Hotel. Though quite an adventure to get to it but with a proper navigation tool you shouldn’t have any problems. It might not seem right as you drive but do not be disheartened. It is located off the beaten path.
It has ample breakfast selection. By ample I mean not just continental breakfast. This time because it is for work, I woke up early to partake in the most important meal of the day. 🙂 Besides their breakfast, there is a little restaurant in the same compound. Though not part of the hotel, there is a special collaboration that the hotel has with the restaurant. Book via the hotel and they will give you a card to pass on to the restaurant. With that, we not only have a special rate but also the option to sign the bill to the room and pay when we check out. Though we didn’t use this option but I am sure, it will be appreciated by others. And the restaurant had great food and exceptional service.
The room was very comfortable and it had everything. Didn’t use their wifi or LAN internet service as we were in Italy and I had my own internet connection via my telephone service provider, so I can’t provide you with that info. But click on their site link and you questions will be answered. I booked this hotel via booking.com another favourite site of mine. The rates for this hotel was reasonable for 6 days 5 nights.
The room was clean, cosy and chic. I like the little touches that though simple, made the room feel adequately designer chic for me. The service was excellent and the front desk staff remembered our names and greeted us each time. This alone makes it stand out from the rest! 🙂 Definitely recommended.
