Attentive staff, clean/modern/minimalist hotel design, comfortable bed. On-site Ristorante I Portici is ideal for a top-notch meal with top-notch service.
Not anything the hotel could change (except maybe double-paned glass on street-facing windows), but Via Dell'Indipendenza is busy/noisy at almost all hours.
Staff were wonderful
I had bugs in my bed, Acari in Italian. I had five six bites all over my body
This is a classy hotel. Everything is done to a high standard. It also has plenty of character. Ideally situated, particularly if you are travelling by train- it's 10 mins walk to the station and 10/15 mins walk to centre of town. We paid extra for a larger room which was a good choice. Breakfast in the restaurant situated in the old theatre was superb. If and when we return to Belogna I would certainly use it again.
The hotel is situated on a busy road so was there was some traffic noise but nothing which detracted from the enjoyment of our stay.
Location in the heart of the city which is a short walk to all of the main sights, it is also very close to the railway station and airport bus which makes easy to find when you arrive. Staff are excellent and made us feel welcome from check in until check out, they helped us with recommendations for places to see and even organised bicycle rentals for us at short notice. Breakfast although not included in the rate was excellent eith plenty of choice and worth paying the extra for.
Nothing to dislike
Nice staff and a "varm" welcome. Would like to stay there again.
The location was perfect, the facilities impeccable and the best breakfast I have ever seen. Very classy hotel, and I feel lucky to have been able to,stay there.
Helpful staff at reception. Room was comfortable.
Bits of shower falling off - was slightly cheaply furnished.
Beautifully presented hotel with friendly, helpful, well-mannered staff. Excellent facilities, choice of restaurants, spectacular terrace bar/bistro. Wifi and Internet point. Beautifully clean and comfortable room. Ours had a spectacular ceiling mural. 10 mins from centre if you walk slowly. Staff couldn't be kinder.
Only flaw was a slightly cheap shower tray that squeaked under you.
IPortici restaurant was excellent. The taster menu was a real culinary experience. All staff were very friendly. The room was very comfortable.
The traffic noise from the nearby roads was annoying in the early morning.
Location, professional staff, beautiful breakfast room
The two 'standard double' rooms we booked turned out to be single rooms with two covers and pillows put on a very narrow bed. Reception explained that hotel was essentially used by single business travelers during the year , and that rooms for this category were sold as ' standard doubles' during the holiday season.
we loved the room and the atmosphere. Lovely hotel. Good breakfast, nice staff
The price for the parking ;)
The hotel and staff fully justifies the star rating and as a returning customer we will be return again when we next visit Bologna.
Bed was comfortable. The closet space and set up was roomy and nice.
They did not give us our wake up call on the morning of our departure!!!! The bathrooms did not have enough counter space. There were 5 steps in our room in order to get to the bathroom. Parking is very limited! We would rather have been closer to the center of town.
Pleasant reception Nice location In-house parking
Room a bit small
Made to feel special and although we were out and about most of the time it was a delight to return to the hotel. It was in a great location being both within walking distance to the station and the main attractions. Fantastic breakfast with lots of choice and good value for money. Frederick at main desk was very knowledgable and genuinely seemed happy to go out if his way to help.
Staff is great and very helpful. the location is great too
Unfortunately next to a park where there was an all day concert until midnight. Not good when you have been travelling for a long time and need to rest. The shower was not properly equipped ...too basic for me
The new renovated Hotel in the City Center is a modern styled Hotel. Close to the Shopping area and to a city parking garage.
Nearly no chance to get a parking spot at the hotels own parking area. You need to park at parking augusto that is about 300m away.
In all respects, excellent ! We received a very special care by the directorial reception staff, and deeply appreciate to her !
Great service. Excellent comfort, all the small special touches were well thought.
All was good
Near to train station Central location. Friendly staff. Good food in Bistro, Restaurant closed for Italian holidays. Clean hotel. Coffee making facilities in the room.
Poor air con. Good sized but overly minimalist rooms. Hard pillows, but we didn't ask for alternatives as we were only there two nights.
The hotel is clean and comfortable, also has a good - but not excellent - location. The room where I stayed was really big. Good shower.
The hotel tries to sell itself as a luxury hotel, but its way far from it. I took upgrade at reception desk, but the room had standard and quite cheap furniture, and air conditioning was not working properly even after two fixing attempts, I had to sleep at over 23ºC. It's a comfortable hotel, not more than that.
Staff Location Good room quality
Modern clean hotel with very basic superior room 20m2. Spacious bathroom with some amenities, many towels. Decent continental breakfast with 10€ additional cost, good service there. Yes, location is close to railway station which you don´t need every day, there is a long walk from this hotel to all sights of this beautiful city centre. If walking at least 2-10km per day is ok for you, then this one is a choice for you. Aamiainen on ok 10€ lisähintaan, hyvä palvelu. Sijanti on ok, enemmän lähempänä rautatieasemaa, jota et tarvitse joka päivä, ja on silti kauempana keskustasta, jossa on kaikki nähtävyydet saatavilla pitkillä kävelymatkoilla.
Superior room: some parts of the shower flew away when water started to come. Very basic room, still clean. No wardrobe, only some hengars. Expensive minibar, ridiculous prices even for soft drinks. Superior room 901 was noisy: all conversations, lobby music and hallway chats easily heard to room; bring your earplugs. Room door was sloppy. Yes there is a extra door in hallway to close, but it was always open as other guests need to go out too. Also bass music from their 2F terrace bar was heard in room, we were at 0F with lobby. Double bed was uncomfortable and too hard making noises from every move. Noisy air condition blew cold air directly to the bed and to head; in August you cannot put it off due to heat wave and high humidity of the air and building. Superior rooms 901-905 are located with the lobby; you have one window at 1.5m high, viewing dull inner yard and the lobby with staff and guests instead of street or garden view as they say even in their own website. We did not change room as this was 2 nights stay only for sleeping. Room was clean with spacious bathroom. Still never again. This hotel did not filled its task and comfort as hotel should have to do: comfortabel sleep. Usually I don´t complain this much about hotels. I don´t recommend to stay here. Hotellin ensisijainen tehtävä on taata asiakkaalle hyvät unet, I Portici ei tässä onnistunut. Superior huoneen parisänky natisi pienestäkin liikkestä, kuin puulautalattia. Sänky oli kova ja epämiellyttävä maata. Ilmastointi puhaltaa kylmää ilmaa suoraan päähän ja sänkyyn. Käytävältä kuului kaikki melu selkeästi respasta (korvatulpat mukaan). Myöskin 2 krs. baarin bassojyske kuului huoneeseen, olimme kerroksessa 0. Huoneessa on kaikki perusasiat kunnossa, ei ole vaatekaappia, ainoastaan seinäteline hengareilla. Superior huoneet 901-905 ovat pääaulan yhteydessä, ikkuna on sisäpihalle ja respan aulaan, ei kadulle tai puutarhaan, kuten lupaavat omilla sivuillaankin.
