It was easy to reach the hotel by car and nonetheless it is within walking distance (8 min) from the main piazza. It is an old building but the facilities are up to date. The receptionist speaks good English and is very friendly. The room is comfortable. The breakfast is very good.
Our room was on the 1st floor right above the entrance of the court yard and already early in the morning they start preparing for the breakfast, which takes place in the court yard. This causes some noise that disturbs the light sleaper.
Superb helpful and pleasant staff
Noise from street from about 6am
Manager and quaint setting. Courtyard.
A really cosy hotel with friendly, helpful staff. Loved the garden and breakfast outside. Would definitely return
Our room was not as good as in the brochure!
Friendly and helpful staff and great value for money. Breakfasts were great and you could either eat in the conservatry or beautiful garden. Rooms were a great size and comfortable but a little noisy in the mornings when breakfast is being prepared. The hotel is on a tiny road so nice and quiet but convenient for hotels and walking to the historic centre. We got a taxi from the airport to the hotel which works out cheaper and quicker than bus/train as we travelled as a group of 3.
Just a little noisy in the mornings when breakfast was being prepared but otherwise the hotel is in a quiet area
lovely atmosphere, great front desk service - very helpful in getting around Bologna, dinner recommendations, must-see sites. great location!
There is nothing I didn't like about this hotel.
Very homely place, a lovely welcome and very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was very big and had everything we needed. Bathroom was really good and all so clean. I loved the inside/outside feel as you walked to and from breakfast and your room. Breakfast was top class, with an amazing variety of cereals,pastries and meats and cheese.Well done to all who work there.
I love the courtyard, I could have stayed there all day w a cafe Americana
I think it's a little pricey, but I am really glad we splurged!!!
Courteous helpful multi- lingual staff Good breakfast served in a charming garden room
Nice hotel in a quiet part of town. Good location, nice rooms and good breakfast. If driving there I suggest you reserve parking and plan a route. The hotel is down a one way street which needs careful planning on how to get to it.
Nothing, a great little hotel with excellent, knowledgeable and very helpful staff
The staff at this hotel are all service orientated. They are kind, helpful and know their town. Second visit for us and once again very impressed.
Room a bit small, but just one night so not really an issue. It was a bit of a struggle getting cases to and from the room but the staff did most of the work so whose complaining?
Porta San Mamolo was a brilliant find - perfect location, lovely room (with lttle balcony!) great breakfast in a lovely little courtyard, and fantastic staff who could not have been more helpful. Even found us amazing places to eat when the whole of Bologna was shut for a public holiday! We had such a lovely time.
Free bikes to use! Breakfast. Proximity to good restaurants. Hot water!
Wifi provision. TV No bar.
The location was OK if you like to walk, which we do. Good breakfast in open air. Very pleasant staff. Prices seem high for the standard of the place but that is probably supply & demand.
No bar or sitting area. Air con a bit weedy but improved when I cleaned the filter. The door or the closet beside our room was badly damaged (by cleaners' work trolley?). Carpets tired & worn in parts. Top of our wardrobe thick with dust & fluff (reported to reception)
The location was great. The staff was helpful (they told us about the tips of parking on the street), and friendly. Several of them said they had worked there for five or more years; that says something about a workplace. The hotel is built, with several small buildings, around a central court. In the court is an attractive breakfast room, and on either side is a shaded area with tables and chairs, where some people took their breakfast. The breakfast was great; coffee to order, five different kinds of marmalade, two or three different croissants, eggs and bacon, three types of cereal, several juices, fruit (melons, kiwi, peaches, plums, nectarines), salad - arugula, tomatoes; cheese, ham and salami. It was a great breakfast. There were also two good restaurants on the street. One was seafood oriented, the other, where we ate-the San Giovese- was traditional Bolognese food. The hotel was quiet, and restful for sleeping.
Staff helpful and friendly, good breakfast. Good location.
Room was looking a bit tired - it seems like it needs long overdue renovation: light not working in the bathroom, there were problems with air con unit which needed resetting via switching the main fuse every time one wanted to use it - these little touches were a bit annoying.
Perfect location for visiting Bologna - very quiet at night-time - lovely room with a terrace would definitely recommend this hotel.
Spacious, clean and a staff that went above and beyond for this price point. Breakfast excellent.
GPS never found the street hotel was on. Wifi weak in room and would not connect.
We loved everything about this hotel and will definitely go back. A great location; really helpful and friendly staff and a great room. They recommended a wonderful restaurant.
We liked everything
Convenient from train station once we figured out which bus to take (31). Very nice staff and breakfast and air conditioning.
What a wonderful place, and top service minded staff. A few blocks walking and you find everything you need: Seeworthy buildings, shopping, food. For us it was perfect. Would love to come back.
The staff were superb, very friendly and accommodating Great bedrooms Very good breakfast Leisurely 5-10 minute walk into the heart of Bologna
Only niggle would be the wifi is unstable
Location, room size, breakfast, very friendly staff.
Air-conditioning not very effective and quite noisy.
Wonderful breakfast overlooking garden. Staff excellent - well-informed, very polite and very helpful.
