My hubby and I stayed here for 2 nights in January and loved it. Our room was super spacious and quiet, in fact the whole hotel has the elegant feel and look of quiet and airy. I love that the building itself is an old building so even tho its a contemporary hotel, its old world character comes through. Staff...

Very well located in the centre of the city, good rooms (a bit small) with all facilities, free wifi, coffee etc a nice restaurant. and very reasonable at that. Great if you want to be close to the Piazza and all the action.

Stayed here 2 nights on ground floor in wheelchair accessible room. Didn't like being so near lobby as it was quite noisy and not so private. Bed was comfortable, room service was superb. Friendly, helpful staff. Location was excellent and in walking distance to many of Bologna's sights.

On the front of it, this is a great hotel. The concept also great with how it pitches itself with restaurants & bar etc. The hotel and structured facilities are well renovated and quality high, albeit sound proofing is non-existent, but we do not mind that in an old city. Access to things like the bar and La Terrazza restaurant...

Spent New Year at the I Portici hotel. Reception staff were very nice and helpful. A Lovely hotel in a good location just a 10 minute walk from the main square. Our "standard" room was very small with not a lot of hanging space for clothes and a bit sole-less. However, the tea & coffee making facilities in the room...

It was our first stay at the Portici and we loved the experience. We are a family of four and got two connecting rooms with beautiful views on the park behind the main street. The beds were very comfortable, the rooms silent and the modern design of the interiors in a historical building maintaining several original features was relaxing and...

Spend Christmas with the family in this 4-star L hotel in the center of Bologna. It was, in one word, Magic (yes, with capital M), as Xmas should be. From beginning to end we massively enjoyed our stay. All parts of the hotel are amazing, the rooms large, full of light and clean, the restaurants, bar, bottega really lovely. We...

We arrived here few hours ago. Let me first of all say that the staff his helpful and professional. The hotel itself is greatly situated. We had two rooms for two nights. Tiny rooms, too warm, no luxury at all,and extremely noisy!!! Not only on the hall way but also from the neighboring rooms. They offered me several alternative rooms...

Hotel is located about 5-10 minutes from Bologna Centrale. We stayed 2 nights in a pretty spacious room with minimalist styling and furniture. That being said, I found the furniture provided quite practical in terms of placement in the room. Overall room was neat and clean. Toilets were clean, neat and all round good except that there were no towel...
