If you want a chain hotel experience, give this a miss. This is a real Italian gem. The rooms aren’t big, the breakfast is continental and it’s tucked down a backstreet…but it is absolutely charming. Spent 4 nights and wished I had booked the week. The staff and management were very polite and helpful from arrival to departure. If you... More

Originally we had booked a room at Hotel Touring, but they tolad us that there is overbooking and relocated us to the Mamolo. I fell Mamolo was great - quiet, peaceful, delightful and helpful staff. The cozy little rooms and beautiful garden. Few nice restaurants nearby - ask the staff.

My only complaint was that it was a little hard to find! Stayed here for two nights and would definitely go back. The room was not fancy but was clean, well kept and comfortable. The staff was very nice and helpful and the breakfast was very good. If you are trying to find it the directions in some of the... More

Boutique hotel in a very quiet area of Bologna south of the centre. Large rooms. Breakfasts are good, but no better than you would expect, although the conservatory style breakfast room was very nice, and must be really good in summer when you could sit outside. As ever with a hotel that has a good Trip Advisor rating, the service... More

Just back after a three day visit to Bologna. The hotel was excellent and we would definitely return. How many city centre hotels can you recommend which are so quiet and tranquil at night? A wonderful find.

We had an excellent weekend stay in this smallish boutique-style hotel. Our first-choice B&B was full, but our stay in Porta San Mamola more than made up for it. The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful, and we loved the two beautiful cats who liked to hang out around the reception area. Sleep quality and breakfast were also great, and... More

We stayed in this hotel for just one night and really enjoyed it. It's quite quaint and full of character, and we thought the quiet location about 15 min walk from the Piazza Maggiore ideal. Our attic room was lovely, and, though not huge, it was large enough to fit in a travelcot for our 2 year old. Breakfast offered... More

Excellent location for visiting the city, beautiful decoration in the room and at the reception, helpful staff, good breakfast in a nice little restaurant room + outside tables, but the breakfast place was quite small considering the amount of people who were having breakfast. Nice little courtyard. The bedroom was very big, beds were not very comfortable but ok, spacious... More

This place is so charming. I really enjoyed my stay here and would stay again. The location is excellent...just a few quick blocks away from the main piazza. Those few blocks take just a couple minutes to walk, but provide a nice break from the busy city at the end of a long day of sight seeing! If you're feeling... More

My fiance and I stayed in Porto San Mamolo for just one night and it was really lovely. Close enough to the city center but still quiet and with plenty of space to park around. We slept in too late for breakfast, but they were really kind to make us a coffee and serve us what was left (which was... More
