From advance reservation to finally arriving, everything about the hotel Porta San Mamola was excellent. After previous trips to Italy and long early morning car journeys from southern Tuscany with children to make the morning flight home, we decided to travel to Bologna the day before our return flight, then have a relaxed short journey to the airport after an...

What a lovely hotel. The staff are extremely friendly and obliging and made our stay very enjoyable, recommending restaurants and catering to all our requests. Breakfast time might have been the best part of our stay - excellent variety and delicious food. The hotel is located in the Old Town, which is the best place to stay in bologna -... More

This hotel misrepresents itself - descriptions on the website could easily have been written by an estate agent! It claims to have a restaurant - but it's only open for breakfast. It claims to have a bar, but it's the same room as you eat breakfast in - and you have to ask at reception for someone to get you... More

My wife and I recently stayed here for our first visit to Bologna. The hotel was great but their general manager and staff were the best. As I arrived at the hotel the staff noticed I had a flat tire on my car. First the general manager changes my flat tire and then assist me in finding a tire shop... More

Lovely hotel for first few days of our honeymoon, we had our own little "apartment" onto a beautiful courtyard. It was really peaceful but very short walk from the centre of Bologna. Staff were extremely helpful. Can't rate it high enough!

Located about 10 minutes walk from the town centre, the hotel was clean, well equipped and the staff were extraordinarily helpful. Unfortunately we only had one night, but this would be a perfect base from which to explore a truly beautiful city.

We came to Bologna from Rome and the change of pace was obvious as soon as we step out of the Centrale station. The impression was even more enhance when we got out of the taxi and entered the peaceful confines of the Hotel Porta San Mamolo. We wanted two adjacent rooms for our family of 4 and the friendly...

Very charming hotel, the grounds were beautiful and the staff was exceptionally friendly. The maps in the lobby were very useful Our room was nice but a little out of the way and involved a very slow elevator. The fact that we couldn't get the WiFi to work was our biggest problem. As an english speaker we relied on the... More

There will no doubt be more luxurious hotels with more facilities in Bologna but they would have to go some to match the friendliness of the team here who were wonderful from the moment we arrived to our departure. Comfortable bed, good sized room with plenty of character. Breakfast is a real treat and the location was spot on, quiet... More
