Nuovo Hotel del Porto
Ranked #34 of 102 Hotels in Bologna
Reviewed October 15, 2010

This little 3* Hotel is well positioned being just 10 minutes walk form the station (north) and city centre (south). The streets between the hotel and the centre have many interesting buildings, shops, cafes and restaurants. At the ned of the road there is a very nice bar serving snaks and great drinks. This is a good place for a pre dinner cocktail as they have a lovely free buffet in the evening! The rooms of the Hotel are a littel small (the king sized beds make it a little cramped) and the beds a little hard but they are very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is good but the room very small so i suggest you get up early if you want a table!

Hotel well located close to many Bologna attractions. Rooms are quite small, but very clean etc... Excellent breakfast, but served in a small, underground room. Very friendly, helpful hotel personel. Worth to choose for short stays in Bologna.

The hotel staff were so unhelpful and inconsiderate. There are so many better hotels in Bologna. Worst hotel experience of my life.

I stayed here during a business trip. The hotel is within easy walking distance to the city center and the train station. Room was clean, breakfast was decent and the price was fair.

I was on business in Italy and during my 1 day stay in Bologna I needed just a good place to sleep and work. I found this 3 stars nice little hotel through eurobookings.com for only 45 euros. It is situated very conveniently in the city centre, only 10 minutes walk from the railway station, and you can also easy access Bologna airport by airport shuttle bus from the railway station. Hi speed wi-fi Internet connection was available free of charge in the room. The room was clean and spotless. Hotel personal was very friendly.

For a place to sleep, it works! It is small, and very clean, and the staff is extremely helpful and the breakfast is very good..........all you can drink cappuccino.

Generally the rooms were very tiny, but this hotel doesn't pretend to be a luxury hotel...........a nice walk into town, but no more than 10 minutes. I would stay here again.

The Hotel Nuovo del Porto is about a 10 minute walk from the train station and another 10 minute walk to the center of Bologna. I love to walk and found it all a breeze - I walked everywhere from the hotel. It's on a fairly quiet side street off a very busy (loud) street. There is always some scooter noise on even side streets in most Italian towns, you can't block it out completely; I asked for a room on a floor higher than 2 where they first put me (hotel has 5 or
6 floors) and was told no more were available except one with two small beds (preferred the single queen bed, since I'm tall). I was a little peeved because it was only about 14:00 and got the idea that no other rooms were clean; I would have waited and just left my bags (they didn't seem sold out). I did hear garbage trucks (or something loud) on the street below a few times during the night, but I admit it wasn't a big deal in the short time I was there.

The young guy at the front desk was helpful, polite, and spoke excellent English. I needed an AC adapter plug for my American appliances and he found one easily for me to use.

Still, there's something kind of stale about this hotel. It doesn't seem inviting or all that pleasant, like it's seen better days, especially in the rooms. It's largely green in the rooms - very dark.
Maybe it's more of a business hotel but even then, business travelers
might probably appreciate a place that's feels more upbeat.

A previous review mentioned breakfast; either that's gone or I missed
it; no one mentioned it, and I never saw any hint of any sort of breakfast but I was there only one night.

The mattress was hard as a rock, but I slept OK in it. The room was mostly green, which made it feel kind of dark and not particularly welcoming. The bathroom was fairly large for a European hotel but the
shower was the standard "phone booth" size (sliding glass doors) you find some commonly in these hotels. The shower was hot and had great water pressure. Soap and shampoo are included. The bathroom even had a scale, which was an interesting touch.

I used the free wireless internet with my laptop - worked like a charm, once they gave me the password.

I could stay here again but given the choice I'd probably look elsewhere first to find a more inviting hotel.
