Polite friendly service, lovely room, excellent breakfast. What more do you need? Our room looked exactly like the photos on the website. See our Room Tips below. Breakfast was excellent by Italian standards and even if we went down towards the end of service times there was a full and complete choice of food, as the staff are constantly bringing... More

A very nice hotel tucked away from the traffic with fantastic staff. Its the staff that will make you look forward to your return visit as they make you feel part of the family. They create the perfect balance, far better than most hotels in the world. The rooms are comfortable, we stayed in one to the rear on the... More

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

Dear Customer "with all due respect" in Italy say things that are not true, on sites that do not reflect the truth, it is a crime, I carefully reread all my site, and nowhere say we have a restaurant, its our English is so bad? I maybe you did not understand what are the services that our hotel offers, I... 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...
