We have just spent a weekend at this hotel with friends. The rooms are beautiful but the customer service is very poor. No one offers to take your bags to the room, fine for us but there are steps to the lift so not easy for everyone. At breakfast no one shows you to a table and then you spend... More

Excellent location, historical bulding converted into a luxury and modern hotel. Staff is extremly friendly and helpful. Rooms are large, clean and cozy. Bathroom and shower is above european average. The breakfast was worthed, good selection of food and drinks. Definetly recomend this hotel to bologna visitors and for business travelers. Parking also available on the premises with a charge.

I liked my room. It had great high ceilings and modern and super clean furniture. However, as much as i was fine with the room i have... More

Just spend few days in this beautiful hotel. Great location close to the train station and the piazza Maggiore makes I Portici a perfect home base to explore Bologna. We had the imperial suite. We were delighted when we opened the door and found the beautiful iron staircase leading to the roof terrace. The suite was perfect for the 5... More

In front of Bologna Central Railway station there are a few different hotels, sucha as Una, Mercury or well known Starhotels Excelsior so I received a few different proposals... More

The hotel is well located close to the train station and to 15 minutes from the center of the city. The front desk employees were pretty helpful recommending restaurants and providing directions. Are our room was pretty large with a very high roof. The hotel has a cold feeling, maybe they want it to look chick and cold. The only... More

Recently stayed here twice and have to say it is an excellent choice. The location is great just a 5 minute walk from the central station and easy walk around Bologna to see the sights, shop or dine. Lovely rooms, friendly staff and a very good breakfast. I like the decor with the blend of the modern and the old... More
