Stayed for 5 nights. Great buffet breakfast, served inside and outside, 7 to 10. Room 414 was large and quiet. Bathroom modern. Staff (thanks Elisa) worked exceptionally hard to please, took care of any problems immediately. Lots of English spoken here. Short walk to center of town. Good value.

Quaint hotel about 1 km from the town centre. Tucked away in the back streets. A comfortable walk into the central square. Room was spacious and had a walk-in shower. Hotel took great care to provide us with an allergy free room- wooden floors, no pets etc. Breakfast in the garden room was delicious and a wonderful, relaxing environment. Friendly,... More

We loved sitting out in the garden area, it was... More

My husband and I were fortunate enough to have stayed at Hotel Porta San Mamolo for 4 glorious nights. From the first time we walked into the lobby to the last time - everyone we encountered were helpful, kind and always willing to assist us in anyway. Our room was great. Bathroom was efficient and clean, sitting area was very... More

The place is clean and the people are friendly. That's the good news. What's bad is the rooms are dilapidated along with the furniture; the carpet looks and feels gross. The place looks run down. The owner clearly doesn't put any money towards these things and just squeezes out as much as possible with what's present. Also, the breakfast buffet... More

This is about our 5th time to have the pleasure to stay at Porta San Mamola . They welcomed us back like old friends. They always give us a nice room and anything we require which is sometimes difficult as they are always very busy and staff were on holidays. The staff make this charming and delightful hotel and many... More
