hotel downtown, great breakfast, possibility to park the car
I booked 3 or 4 months in advance, i called the hotel 7 days before to ensure I would get a room with a view on the park. And upon arrival, we had a room with no view and close to reception (so a bit noisy). We could change for the second night, very nice staff !
Young people, excellent service of the staff!! A hotel with personality!

Breakfast Not enough space for your clothes.
A high level of service by professional staff. The adjoining tree lined park area, so offering both peaceful areas, with the City centre near by. Evidence of excellent management Secure private car parking, albeit at extra cost The architecture of the Portico was marvellous
Getting everything right all of the time, is not easy for anybody, but this hotel succeeds were so many others fail and disappoint. We have stayed in Bologna a few times, in the past at other hotels. I Portici is the most pleasant of them all. So, no, I liked everything!
Excellent location. First impression was good- beautiful interior and staff professional. We arrived early but they checked us in anyway. Room was clean, bit small, but due to the very high ceilings did not feel claustrophobic. Bathroom very modern. Bar would be great in the summer- outside terrace area looked beautiful, but bit too cold for winter.
Felt very much like a business hotel. No information about touristy activities provided (however, if we had needed it I'm sure the staff would have happily helped). Buzzing noise in the room made it a little difficult to sleep- not sure what it was! Bed a little hard.
Location, staff, design & breakfast.
Unfortunately the main restaurant as well as the roof bar were closed during the winter period so we gave a "fair" score for the hotel's facilities.
Excellent services (room service, free internet, parking, concierge, multilingual staff, evening turndown service...) and a central location.
The room is clean and comfortable, good wifi connection.
Location was fine, helpful staff, calm hotel, clean rooms, good insulation to protect against street noise, well--heated in winter, nice bed linens and duvet, mini-frig in room, coffee/tea facilities in room, decent sized room. Good value if obtained at a deeply discounted price, otherwise I would say not value for money.
Cold and unattractive tile/terrazza floors in rooms, slow wifi, poor restaurant options (one very expensive, other an outdoor-only bistro), very poor insulation against noise from other rooms, inadequate reading lights, can enter lift (elevator) to all floors without passing through the lobby (lack of security), only an inmovable rain type showerhead (I certainly don't like having water splashing down on my head every time I take a shower, especially if I don't want to wash my hair).
Position good, staff very helpful and pleasant, food good, room comfortable, great value.
Everything. The staff was amazing. The room and service was incredible. Can't ask for more. Thank you
Lovely hotel with comfy, spacious rooms and great breakfast.
VERY WELCOMING STAFF Early check in Great location Lovely terraces Delicious breakfast Aromatherapy candle was a nice touch
We had a nice last night in Italy! Very nice Hotel.
I loved pretty much everything: front desk, room, service, location.
The only minor issue was that our room windows were not accessible as they were like 2 meter from the floor, just a minor issue really.
The breakfast was paid (12 euros), but one of the bests i have ever had! Great location and very helpfull staff.
The bed could be a bit bigger. The service of The bistro was slow and the amount of the food, judging by the price, was very small!
Rooms a bit noisy. Noise from bar below room 305 Noise from the Street room 307
The service The helpfulness of the staff
The noise level in the lobby and rooms Loud music in the bar, even when there was no one present Lack of natural light in the rooms
Location, Helpful reception staff Cleanliness
There are no chest and drawers,if we saty long bit of problem. Bistoro staff is bit rough. Telephone bill is too high,even inside EU.
Nice central hotel reasonably priced and clean
A little noisy early morning
Position of Hotel in Bologna Decor Cleanliness Friendly staff
Lack of storage in room & bathroom Shower a bit cramped
Staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was clean and all thing was well-thought which you need.
It's the second time that I was in the Portici and it's an excellent hotel. Some of the rooms are really amazing. If you don't mind being towards the front road, I would recommend the rooms there - but if you prefer a quiet room, the inner courtyard might be better. I like their attention to detail: it's really pleasant to come to the room in the evening and it feels like it's been prepared especially for you with chocolates, a a candle and slippers waiting for you. Location is excellent: airport bus is just around the corner, it's easy and nice (!) walking to the main square, the train station is also just a couple of minutes walking. Quality of the cappuccino is also great :) The bistro of the hotel can also be recommended - good quality food.
