A four star hotel, with a Michelin starred restaurant, newly refurbished within the historical portici of Bologna. One can hardly think of better billing. Imagine our disappointment to be thrust into a sanitarium for the mentally ill. Our room was upgraded, I assume from a room where leather straps remained attached to the bed. The rooms had no natural light... More

We decided to visit Bologna in order to stay at the Prendiparte b and b tower, but for 3 nights it was just too expensive. We decided to stay at the I Portici instead as it is an SLH property and close to the train station. From the moment we arrived the staff treated us like family. Irena checked us... More

Our stay at I Portici Hotel has risen the bar of " excellent customer service" to such a high level we fear we will never be satisfied again. We had booked into the hotel for 1 night en-route to Rome and arrived late in the afternoon. From the initial reception we were impressed with the professional yet warm welcoming we... More

This is really a special hotel with the only one star Michelin restaurant in Bologna. Unfortunately this was fully booked (make sure you book in advance, it really is worth it). This is surprising, since the city has a lot to offer in dining. The hotel offers a good mix between modern luxury (although not overdone) and Italian authenticity. The... More

Upfront, the hotel looks like an awesome deal to good to be true. Altough not dissappointed, the costs including parking and breakfast turned out to be a lot higher (43 EUR surcharge for two people). The hotel design is on the spot (with the exception of the terrible all-black uniforms of the staff) but the rooms are a bit sterile.... More

This hotel does not show itself from outside. You should be in and stay there to discover this hidden beauty. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Some of the rooms have high ceilings. The hotel is a part of an old theater. You have the chance to have your breakfast in front of the theater scene where the ceiling is... More

We loved this hotel! Comfortable everything functioned superb staff lovely breakfast at 10€ per person. The welcome drink was a nice unexpected touch and good wines, not rubbish. As it was raining heavily we ate in the Terrace bar very good food. Impressed by that we bit the bullet for the outstanding Michelin starred restaurant on our second night. Expensive,... More

We had a very successful 3 night stay at I Portcini Hotel. A good room size, beautiful (Very) high ceiling with frieze, excellent breakfast and very friendly staff made our stay memorable. Well located, within less than 10 minutes walk to the Bologna Centrale station, this hotel is very god value. Recommend the Terrazo restaurant.

Hotel location, cleanliness and comfort were excellent. Staff were very pleasant and helpful, particularly Simone at reception. Great spread for breakfast, stylish terrace bar. Michelin star restaurant on premises. We'll be back.

We were very pleased with our stay. The service was impeccable, the rooms were pleasantly designed. We ate at the restaurant which had a fantastic ambience, during the summer. We have been traveling for the past two weeks and so far this has been the best value. I could not recommend it enough for your overnight stay in Bologna.
