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.
Pefect location, good breakfast
Superior room (no. 211) is not really superior - you cannot uncover windows!!
Clean and simple room
Basic rooms and small. Pictures made it look nicer than it was. Also they gave 2 single duvets on 1 double bed which was very bizarre and not ideal if you are a couple
Front staff Giuseppe Vincenzo (breakfast el captain!) Eloise Location Good breakfast Beautifully renovated hotel While close to train station, area was not a "run down feel"
Lack of ventilation control in room was not working for fresh air Noise from open window (expected in city
Great location, near the train station for easy travel by train. Staff was friendly.
We had to change rooms 3 times to find a quiet room. Very embarrassing and the staff was helpful, but the rooms on the street side are very noisy.
Location and price Staff were friendly Free glass on wine which was good quality.
No english television channels. Room was quite small but ok for a solo traveller
Beautiful modern hotel set in early 20th century palace, high ceilings with frescoes. Exceptional service - we went for my birthday weekend and a surprise platter of fresh fruit appeared in the room. The breakfast room was in an old theatre, lovely setting, all mod cons.
Superb location near the Railway Station and most major sights. Elegant decor. Excellent breakfast.
Not a critique - but you should remember to book a table at the restaurant in advance.
Staff are super helpful
Room is a bit small and dark
Comfort and cleanliness.
Small room for the price. Inexperienced front desk staff was not helpful in giving directions.
The service is excellent …everybody who works there is giving the best of themselves to please u… our room was very pleasant , I asked for a quiet spot in the hotel and I received a nice room modern style with little balcony the breakfast is for 12 euro extra not much because it is a nice variation of food and drinks and again excellent service ( even fresh orange juice) the location is perfect as well near the railway station and the old center we come back for sure :-)
Everything was excellent-the staff,the food,the hotel!!! I will return!
Location and charm
Little utility to room. Bed covers too short. Shower leaks on floor. Bar food to limited. So hip that it hurts.
Great service, clean, well located, great breakfast
Rooms were a bit spartan and cold
Price, position, clean and very pretty room.
A little noise from the street early in the morning
The remarkable friendliness and professionalism of the front desk staff the bed
I really missed a workout room - all the more since the morning was rather cold. The room istelf was a touch small but normal for Europe.
Location was perfect, very close to shops, restaurants & main square. Hotel was beautiful, a mixture of contemporary & old. Staff were excellent, very helpful & friendly. Food was gorgeous, very fresh & presented beautifully.
Poor hairdryer in room very small & only one hot setting.
We loved everything about the hotel. We were given a free upgrade to a deluxe room which was a real treat. Breakfast was outstanding too with a wide selection of breakfast goods of the highest quality.
Our only slight criticism is that they could make a little more cosy. We enjoyed one night a lot but thought we wouldn't want to stay for more than a couple of nights, particularly in the winter.
Friendly and helpful staff Good location close to railway station Comfortable bed
1. Flying insects - found 3 of them, which is more than enough.. 2. Hard and cold floor (the same as outside the room) is a strange solution imho 3. A little noisy
The hotel was amazing / nice location and immaculate inside. The staff were so helpful and made us feel very welcome. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.
