    « Base for Veneto region day trips »

    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.... Happy travelling, David & Karen - Brisbane, Australia

    « 16th stop of 19 hotels booked in 1000 kilometre cycle tour »

    The room was nice and the bed comfortable best pillow one of two best pillows I used i the trip as i have severe necks problems. I have stayed at Best westerns and I have never had a complaint. Secure storage for the bike.Breakfast was good and a good choice. A bit dated needs a bit of refurbishment but not a problem . Not as central as I thought and no choice of any restaurants nearby just hotel or a walk to the town Nothing I didn't like however today 11th October as I needed to print out hotel transactions I checked my Caxton prepaid currency card. I paid this hotel on the day of departure 23rd September but found out that they had authorised the card the day before which has taken me in to a negative balance on my card . I phoned Caxtons and they told me this should drop off tomorrow after 21 days that is not the point that should not happen to a customer as I had to pay for another hotel on my credit card because of this and the bank charge for this

    « Greetings for the lady from breakfast service! :)) »

    I will always remember breakfasts with great coffee, tasty cakes and super warm lady that was always helpful and nice. Hotel is relly good choice if you are on road trip. We are not the only ones that think like that bcs every evening there was new coach with tourists ;) Really good location - shop and train station is really close. Room was big, bright and comfortable. Bathroom clean, with everything you need. Wide range of tv channels. Free wi-fi. Really glad that we choose this place (family 2+2). I also liked staircase with chinese paintings on the wall.

    « Comfortable, Cosy and in a Prime Location »

    Based on a total of 90 days spent at the Cristallo Hotel in Rovigo, Italy, I can confidently say that the hotel is fantastic and beyond expectations. I highly recommend the hotel for anyone staying in Rovigo or cities close-by. Here are my observations: - The Hotel environment is very nice - If you're a petrolhead, you'll love the walls as they have automotive sports written all over them. - The service is fantastic, everyone is very friendly and helpful. - The hotel is very clean, rooms are cleaned well on a daily basis. - The internet is superb, it is fantastic for streaming and making VoIP calls like Skype and Viber. - The bed, bed sheets and pillows are very comfortable and well chosen. - The air conditioning works well even in the summer period in July and August - experienced this myself. - Make sure you choose street view double rooms, they're the best. - Parking is available for free at the hotel entrance. - The hotel restaurant food and service are good maybe slightly pricy.

    « Horrible service »

    Ate dinner in the restaurant. It seemed that our presence there was an inconvenience for the waiter. People were waiting for food and the courses did not come out in order. Some did not come out at all. When we asked for dessert the waiter said he would bring the selection over. We waited over 20 minutes. The waiter had no intention of bringing the dessert to us. He arrogantly was finished with our table and did not return. Do not have dinner at this place!

    « Comfortable and great service »

    We felt this was a comfortable basic hotel. The breakfast was excellent and gave us a good location to start touring the area from. Rovigo is nice but it is a city. We were looking for the smaller more quaint little places. Good place to base from for area touring.

    « Confortabile stay »

    Hotel is nice. I often stay there. The price is slightly high for the standard of the room but the service is great. Breakfast is very good. Easy to park and central. Would recomend it to anyonepassing through Rovigo

    « two business nites »

    This hotel is very close to the rail station and not far from Rovigo downtown, you can easily and safely walk. My room was a superior, it was nice and big (three windows), clean and a wide choice of pillows. Remember to log in to the free of charge wifi in the lift because in the room you cannot find any piece of paper with the password, it is written in the lift only :)

    « Business Trip Hotel »

    This hotel has it's ups and downs. On the upside they do a nice breakfast (standard European buffet), the staff is very friendly and helpful. On the downside the rooms are in need of some modernization, the walls are a bit thin, and there is NO AC. This was an issue the first time I visiting (July) but not an issue this time (December). The hotel is on the older side, but it's still clean. The showers are a little surprising to an American (small pedestal shower). All and all not a bad place but not my first choice, thought your options are limited in Rovigo.

    « Overnight stay aside a business trip »

    I was welcomed by an eager to help 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 to maximum a 3- stars hotel. Breakfast was indeed fine, served in a large and sunny base level room next to a beautiful and large hotel hall. Average experience at last, probably not worth the price, but with some minor refurbishing this hotel could be brought up to the standard quality of a Best Western hotel.

    « A good hotel and a good dinner »

    The Best Western Cristallo was a good hotel -- a good bed, a fairly small room. We had dinner there, a branzino that was good, but not great, and a good Greco di Tufo wine. Its location was convenient and the reception staff was very helpful.

    « A very good hotel »

    We have been in this hotel for the third time. This time we were 7nights. The hotel is very convenient, clean room. There is a good restaurant in the hotel, and a very friendly and useful stuff. The breakfast is very good. We have there a very good time.

    « Excellent comfortable stay »

    We have just stayed here for four nights whilst visiting friends in Rovigo. The hotel is convenient for the town centre, being just a ten minute walk away. We stayed in a suite, which was great to have plenty of space and not too expensive either. There was both an espresso maker and a kettle in the room. Breakfast was good and all the hotel staff were really helpful.

    « Good Dependable Hotel in the Center of Rovigo »

    My wife has cousins in Rovigo and when we visit, we stay at the Best Western Cristallo. This is an older hotel and is dated in appearance. However, it has many good points. One of its big pluses is that it is very conveniently located: right across the street from a major bus terminus and just a few minutes flat walk from the railroad station. The rooms are generally spacious and confortable. The staff is very personable and gets to know you quickly because there is an intimate closeness about this hotel. They put on a very good buffet breakfast and the woman in charge is exceptionally conscientious and works very hard to make sure you are satisfied, plus she remembers your coffee order the next day. They also have a dining room for dinner and we ate there on one of our evenings in town. The service for dinner was very good and our meals were excellent. This is an ideal small town hotel. And you can't beat the rate: 100 Euro/night.

    « Great little budget hotel »

    We went to a business trip to Bologna and booked this hotel which is very close to highway so it took around 30-45 minutes to get to Bologna. Rovigo is a nice small town, so don't expect some luxury but the hotel is very clean, with quite good food and great service. Staff is very nice and helpful. Great value for money.

    « GREAT hotel! »

    I stayed at the best western hotel cristallo for a little over 60 nights the first few months of the year. They did an incredible job! I cannot say enough good things about the staff and how well the hotel was ran. They made my stay easy and comfortable and I am grateful for the wonderful job they did! The hotel was easy to find and close to train and bus stations, laundry services, restaurants and a gym. They also have a laundry service on site as well as a restaurant and bar/cafe. If you're going to Rovigo, stay at the best western!

    « good value for money. Excellent breakfast! »

    I use to stay at the hotel when in business trip and it is located close to the train station, so very comfortable coz you dont need taxi if travelling by train. breakfast and lunch are very good. never tried dinner.

    « Easy to find, right off the highway. »

    We chose Rovigo as we were coming from Slovenia and wanted a place right off the highway, close to but not in, Bologna as the next morning it was only 45 minutes to the Bologna terminal where we needed to catch a train. Parking and breakfast was included, and we wouldn't get charged an extra fee for trying to drive within the city centre of Bologna. The hotel was probably the nicest thing in town, with an attached coffee shop and restaurant. Breakfast was included and fine, rooms were a good value, clean, and a nice size. I wouldn't necessarily go back as we have no reason to go to Rovigo, but if you're needing a place right off the highway it's a great option.

    « We came back »

    We stayed there for two nights in January. The service was great and our room was clean. We did stay in a deluxe room, and the "extras" were very positive. It is important to know that the hotel is within walking distance of the train station. That was incredibly helpful. Overall, we had a nice experience.

    « Outstanding 3* in Rovigo »

    Staff excellent, polite and friendly and would do anything to sort out a minor question or problem. Room ultra spacious, clean, quiet and very comfortable. Had dinner every night at the hotel and was never disappointed, again staff helpful and friendly. Wi-fi typically very good, and the 2 glitches were sorted promptly by reception. One of the best breakfast buffets to be found in a Northern Italian hotel.

    « Marked down due to treatment of group booking »

    To be clear, the rooms are quiet, clean and comfortable and the location is a handy five minute walk from the train station with direct links to Venice, Ferrara, Padova, etc. I've marked down as we were visiting with a group and provided with a vastly inferior breakfast each morning. When I tried to go fetch a few things not available in the group breakfast (like fresh bread) I was unceremoniously chased back to the bad breakfast. Not pleasant. However if you're staying as an individual, this would not be a problem and the normal breakfast looked good.

    « Senior Staff Sulky, Sullen and food poor. »

    Several senior staff were argumentative and sullen. Air conditioning did not work and despite the temperature clearly registering as 29 degrees (and even higher at night so difficult to sleep), I was treated as though I was lying. Why would I ? Similarly some of the staff in the restaurant just couldn't be bothered. Head waiter looked bored and impatient as my husband took a quick look at the wine list and then we were served very mediocre overcooked food. Breakfast was nice but apart from that, pretty Awful all round really.

    « Grateful stay »

    It is very nice hotel with the nice staff, room is spacious and clean, there is air-conditioning in the room, in the breakfast room is choice of many dishes, there is also restaurant in the hotel and city centre is also nice

    « Great location »

    It's the perfect location if you are planning to stay a few days in the area. Just a few minutes away from the train station, you can walk to the hotel. Also, a 10 minute walk will get you in the center of Rovigo, if you'd like to visit a bit the town. The great deal is that you can take the train and be in Venice in less than an hour, Padova in 35 minutes and other destinations as Ravenna, Verona in decent time. You can spend one day in each and be set- no need to further plan. The rooms of the hotel were Comfortable and clean and the service was good.

    « Lovely hotel room »

    The room was clean and quite. There are only a few minor things, the English of the receptionist was a bit difficult to understand. It would have been nice if the wifi password was given without having to ask for it. And the receptionist took 15min to open the door during the night. Besides that it was ok.
