Lovely hotel in great location - 10/15 minute walk to the centre, right near the train station. Rooms are minimamilst in decor. Standard rooms are very small however so if you have lots of luggage worth upgrading to a bigger room.

As part of our honeymoon, we stayed for 1 night at I Portici Hotel, Bologna. The location of this hotel was just a few minutes walk from the train station and straight down the road to lead to the few Bologna touristy sites. The room was beautiful, with a painted ceiling and spacious room / bathroom. There was a nice... More

Truly comfortable accommodations -- two large beds in a large room. Everything inside was modern and well maintained. Great location near the train station. Helpful concierge -- told us how to DIY travel by train to an aceteria and a winery. I booked through hotels.com and found a great price. I highly recommend this hotel.

For a business trip this is a great hotel -free wifi, clean rooms, helpful staff, stacks of great restaurants (and gelato) near most of the attractions and bus from the airport stops close and a 5 min walk to the station. Would also be good for couples on holiday, and although there were children there I would say less to... More

Nice clean and modern Hotel. I don't understand the criticisms really. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Allowed us to check in early and held our bags after we checked out (until our train departed in the afternoon). Very close to train station. An easy walk really. Saved a taxi ride and wasted time getting from transportation hub to hotel. All... More

Misled by reviews and photos or would never have chosen this hotel. The elegant and spacious lobby belies rooms that are smaller than budget cruise ship cabins but with less flair. The hotel itself is a maze of rooms like an airport transit hotel, disorientating and user unfriendly. Very disappointed given high price ($150 pn) paid well in advance and... More

Hotel seemed very pleasant, with nice staff and clean rooms, overall we enjoyed our stay, but wouldn't go back. The first problem was that all of the communal spaces (bar/restaurant) seemed to be in use during our stay. We were offered free welcome drinks in the bar, but couldn't use them as it was being used by conferences in our... More

Apart from the location near the station (but in any case too close for a cab, too far to walk if you have heavy luggage) I think this was a case of trying too hard. It looks quite modern and inviting walking in but staff were a bit stiff and not overly welcoming. While our room had windows, the bottom... More

I stayed here on a recent trip to Bologna. I cannot rate this hotel high enough. The building is centrally located, only 20 mins from the airport (15 euro in a taxi) and only 5 mins walk to the train station. The building is stunning and the staff so helpful. I was upgraded to a double room for free and... More

It's a beautiful hotel but know where they are putting you. We're currently in room 321. Standard yes but by far the tiniest room I've been in in all of Italy. We are at the end of a hall by the stairwell where someone smokes constantly. Mentioned to the front desk but it doesn't seem to matter much. I've stayed... More
