We stayed for 10 days and had a wonderful time. It is an excellent location and the staff is fantastic. Out only negative was the internet connection is very limited. We could only get internet in our room it we stood in the bathroom and had the window open. However if we were in the the open areas where breakfast... More

An older hotel spread over several buildings around a leafy courtyard, this is a little oasis. We had a room at the back, accessed by a quirky elevator - I almost felt like I was in the opening sequence of Get Smart. Some rooms don't have a 'shower' per se, rather a hand held nozzle over a bath but we... More

It was hard to find this hotel. It's actually inside the Traffico Limitato district, so I called the hotel to ensure that we could drive into the district. There are very limited parking outside hotel. The street is very small. If the concierge is not there, you will have to wait outside the door to be buzzed in, which is... More

Hotel Porta san Mamolo is a beautiful hotel, with a gorgeous garden and courtyard which is one of the reasons I chose it. We didn't actually get to sit outside as we were too busy seeing Bologna (we only had 48 hours, but would love to re-visit Bologna and would definitely stay here again) but breakfast was served in an...

This is a truly delightful hotel. Charming without being self consciously boutique and conveniently located (about 10-15 minutes walk from Piazza Maggiore). Our room was spacious, comfortable, and had been very carefully furnished and decorated, and with a little balcony overlooking the hotel's lovely courtyard garden. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would certainly recommend it and will book... More

We had a fantastic long weekend staying at this hotel. The staff were very pleasant and put Wimbledon on the big screen for us so we could watch Andy Murray play. The hotel could do with some sprucing up and the air con needs a service but we slept really well on comfy beds in a quiet room. Eating out... More

Lovely charm and character. We stayed three nights and loved the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The garden is a delight for breakfast or a drink as the sun goes down. Our room was spotless and decorated in a classic manner in keeping with the building. Great spot to try several local restaurants and handy for bus to station.

Nicely appointed hotel. We were in a building just up from hotel which isn't as connected to front desk or gardens. Breakfast was nice beds comfortable. Staff could have done a better job of showing us the room we didn't realize we had a kitchenette. It looked like a large wall closet just happened to open it and there was... More

For the last eight years I have been staying a week at a time at Hotel Porta San Mamolo when working in Bologna. The service has always been impeccable, with accurate, helpful advice provided whenever needed. They'll happily lend you a bicycle for touring around the old city. The rooms vary greatly in size and configuration but are always clean... More
