We stayed at Cristallo Best Western Rovigo 3 years ago and decided to come back this year to Rovigo as a base to explore the Veneto region more fully. The Hotel is really well placed, the train & bus stations are just a few minutes’ walk away. We took the train as a day trip to Padua, the next day to Venice & then the next day to Ferrara – the trains are fast & economical. We then hired a car and went to the Medieval villages of Este, Montagnana, Monselice & Arqua Petrarca - there was easy parking in each of the villages and each of the villages had their own unique charm - absolutely worth a visit to each one! We loved coming home to the same room, we could return each day without the drama of checking in to a new town each day. The food at the Hotel restaurant is superb. The restaurant staff were attentive, the menu was diverse and the food was fresh and beautifully presented. The risotto was cooked to perfection, in fact every meal I had was very good! My husband and I have a business in Australia. We are lucky to be able to travel frequently, but we need great internet connection whilst away to keep the business ticking over. The Hotel has amazing wifi speed & connection, plus they have a work station & printer set up for guests’ complimentary use, this is a great bonus for travelling business people. The bed was huge and really comfortable, the room had lots of extra features that we loved that made our stay more enjoyable. Most of all everything was in good working order, the Hotel appears to have a great quality control system, as business people we notice good management that’s for sure! At night we’d go downstairs to the Guest Lounge areas and have Italian Aperitif, the complimentary finger food was lovely. There was always a staff member available who spoke English to answer any questions. I highly recommend this Hotel, we’ve stayed in probably around 100 Italian Hotels, I don’t take recommending a Hotel lightly....
