Beautiful hotel in the centre of Bologna. Nice little rooms that have a cozy feeling and little details like electronic plugs for most common countries...no need for adaptors. The breakfast buffet is more than you can handle and has excellent choice.

We are currently on our honeymoon doing a tour of Italian cities and after coming from a fabulous hotel in Florence to the I Portici we are very disappointed. On the website the place looks beautiful, clean, fresh, modern, but on closer inspection this place is a let down. The stone floors mean every single noise is heard and given... More

Stayed here for three days for a girlie shopping trip. Great location being on the Via Indipendenza which is approx 10 mins walk to Piazza Maggiore with plenty of good shops along the way. The hotel is in an old building with a contemporary minimalistic interior. This style may not suit everyone but we loved the simple stylish look. The... More

The hotel is located in the Northern part of Bologna city centre. Within a 15mn walk, you can reach the Piazza Maggiore. It is very nice to walk under the Arcades to join the museums and cathedral. The room we were provided with had a view on the park (which abided by our requirement); it was quiet, middle-sized, the bathroom... More

Stayed at the I Portici Hotel over Christmas and enjoyed it very much. Staff where very helpful recommending trips and restaurants. Nothing was too much for all the staff, especially Irene and Federico who deserve a special mention. Would certainly stay here again. Declan from Poole England

What looks like a modernbhotel from the outside is in reality the restored/rebuilded former palazzo of the pope when he had his residence in Bologna. The dining room is a former theater and the cellar the former ice cellar, which was filled with ice during the winter and kept the storage cool during the hot summer. The rooms are individual...

Every now and then there is a hotel that just seems to get things right. I Portici is located along a main street near the Bologna train station. It is surrounded by very old historic buildings so we were pleasantly surprised when we entered to find a bright clean modern contemporary lobby and a welcoming professional staff. Check-in was a...

My husband and I stayed here for one night over the Christmas holidays. The hotel is in an excellent location just outside the centro storico. There is on-site parking (for a fee). We booked a last minute stay and found a deluxe room for a great value. The room was smallish, but everything was clean and modern with nice design... More

This is a modern hotel in a good location in a beautiful city. Main let down is the range of rooms which vary quite a lot and make it a bit hit and miss. I returned as I stayed before in a great room, but was disappointed upon my return. It you get a good room it is worth the... More
