About this listing

Private room in Padua, one block away from train station. Venice in 25 minutes, Bologna, Verona one hour. Walk to historic Padua center. Big room, real bed, share kitchen and family area, WiFi. Your host is an American traveler/photographer/writer.

New Air conditioning in unit

The space

My large flat is comfortable and does not feel cramped. It is on the second floor, no elevator. Your room is spacious with lots of natural light and blackout blinds for undisturbed sleeping. The bed is very comfortable... People always remark that they get a great nights sleep.

It is a shared bathroom but I take most of my showers at the gym.

Please note, I only allow two people at a time. This is the best deal in Padua... you literally walk just minutes to the train station, and to the center historic area.

Linens and towels included.

Street parking available, no assigned space.

My flat is very near the train station so expect some noise until about 10pm. It is really not that bad and most of my guests don't even notice.

Usually, if a guest stays more than 3 nights, I leave for a a couple days to allow a measure of privacy. But this does not happen all the time, and it depends on my schedule.

Guest access

Kitchen, Washer, Family Room

My wife and I stayed at Jay's for a night before our flight from Venice. Jay's place is very well furnished and clean. The location is also very convenient, it's 10 minutes walk from the train station and is in a seemingly quite neighborhood (although I think Jay's place is a bit of a walk from the attractions in Padua). We highly recommend his place.

Clean, plenty of space, close to the train station, this worked very well for us. Plenty of space in the fridge for breakfast food we bought at the grocery store in the train station; there is also a small shop selling fruit and some other things even closer.

The flat is near to the station and thus very convenient for whoever wants to use it as the base to travel by train in the area. The issue of noises from train did not bother me as I expected that, and there were not that many late at night. Jay is a very good host and provided me good advice when required. If you want to explore Paduo, Venice and its vicinity, this is the place to stay.

Jay's place is a wonderful location to visit Padua and is a quick walk to the train station to head to Venice. Jay was very accommodating throughout the stay! Thanks Jay!

Jay's place is perfect if you're using it mainly to do one day trips to the surrounding areas. It's extremely close to the train station which can be a good and bad thing. I didn't mind the noise much. It's only a 30 min train ride to Venice and a 40 min to Verona

Jay's place was comfortable and clean, and in a good location right by the train station for people like us that were coming in and out of Padua through there. Jay was helpful and courteous while still giving us our space and privacy, would definitely recommend staying here!
