We stayed at the hotel for 1 night. The hotel and rooms are stunning If you like minimalist style. Our room was on the 2nd floor right by the fire escape (and near the bistro ) I can only assume the restaurant goers used it throughout the night and each time the door banged shut. I could also smell cigarette... More

The lobby is OK and the location is good, only ten minutes walk from the city center. The bedroom was small and the A/C unit was not working. I had also some trouble getting the TV working. The bed, the WC and the amenities were OK. The breakfast was in a good room and the food had normal quality but... More

This is a good hotel in an excellent location to explore Bologna. The hotel is very clean, staff were friendly. Breakfast was very good. It is about a 5 minute walk from the train station where you can also get buses to the airport and within 10 minutes you are in the heart of Bologna. The only negative was the... More

I am a very frequent traveller to Italy for business but this time had my husband accompanying me. I booked a standard room, which was still a bit pricey but as these were the last few days of our holiday I thought I would lash out. I was extremely disappointed when I saw the size of the room, but in... More

The stuff was friendly, the terrace is amazing overlooking the park. the breakfast room is in an old theater with high painted ceiling, a stage with a piano and a harpist playing beautiful music in the morning. The room was spacious with enough storage. Lounge area with access to kitchen where fresh pasta is being made.

Booked for 3 nights in November. Got a good deal through travel agency for basic room. Room on 1st floor was small in comparison to most hotels I've stayed in. However, bathroom was bigger than most. Quite dark, as only bed side lights on one side of the room. Small window overlooking central courtyard and interior of hotel. Small drinks... More

Constructed in an old theater, it is now a superb place to stay. The rooms are big with high ceiling. The breakfast is delicious and the room astonishing. The overall service is beyond expectations without being pushy. Beyond the hotel is a park suitable for running; not advisable for ladies at night. Next time I'll wanna stay here again.

This hotel was just spectacular: historic with a modern interior and service like no other we experienced in Italy. The reception staff, especially Johnny and Guilia, were absolutely fabulous. They are competent, intelligent, friendly, helpful and really worth noting. We stayed at excellent hotels during our stay in Italy but none could rival our experience here. The buffet breakfast had... More

We loved I Portici Hotel. It is luxurious and if your can book off season or in advance they have some small cheap rooms off of the lobby and interior garden. These are lovely rooms, you just can't open the window wide as people in the lobby will have a great view of you. That aside, the room, bathroom, bed... More
