Just spent 2 nights at this Hotel with my wife for a short break. The Hotel is lovely with extremely helpful and cheerful staff. The room was beautiful and a good size. Breakfast was genuine and plentiful and taken in a calm atmosphere. Highly recommend this Hotel for a short visit to Bologna as it is only 15 minutes on foot from the historical centre and all the shops.

Stayed for 6 nights on business in Nov/Dec. It has all been said before. Great rooms and staff. The rooms range from outside main building or inside, with rooms via breakfast area. Breakfast is good, plentiful and great coffee. Roberto and all concerned thanks for a great stay. I will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for courtyard view rooms

We recently spent a night at this quirky, lovely little hotel before continuing our trip to Perugia. With hindsight I wish we had spent a little longer. Bologna is a lovely city and this hotel was very central with extremely friendly and helpful staff (and a lovely cat!!). If ever we get to Bologna again we will definitely stay here again and recommend it.

Spent 3 nights in Bologna last September in this hotel and it was a fantastic experience. When I first entered the room, I immediately wondered whether I'd been given the right one. Two levels with a huge double bed and 40+ inch TV on the upper level and plenty of space on the bottom level including a large sofa. Anyway, apparently it was NOT a mistake so I spent 3 very relaxing nights here. I have no idea if all the 'rooms'are like this. The staff were amazingly friendly, and were even very interested in Aussie Rules when I tried to get them into it. Breakfast was one of the best of my 2 month trip including an amazing cereal that I could not get enough of...I think pomegranate was the secret ingredient. Location was for me ideal...not too near the busy shopping district, but close enough to all the important aspects of Bologna.

We stayed there for a week in September 2012, staff were very good and helpful, We mentioned some noise from snoring in an adjacent room, and we were switched to a much better, larger, quieter room. Staff were brilliant. Hotel location is very good, with the whole of the old walled Bologna within easy walking distance. Plenty of choices for food and drink locally, as varied as you like, similarly the shops are good and the markets amazing. The staff were genuinely courteous and helpful, particularly in helping us to sort out the travel arrangements for a day trip to Ferrara by train. If we go to this beautiful city again, we would be happy to stay at the Hotel Porta San Mamolo.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the inner courtyard will be quieter than those on the front and there is one room with a balcony overlooking the inner courtyard if you like outside relaxing.
