Hotel Porta San Mamolo
Ranked #9 of 102 Hotels in Bologna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 November 2017

We stayed here for a long weekend with our 2 sons. It is well located 10-15 minute walk to everything, lots of restaurants very close by. The staff were friendly and welcoming, although sadly did not seen that knowledgable about trips / suggestions for tourists. There are lots of interesting rooms within this boutique hotel. I think it is more a 3 than a 4 star - bathroom was a little basic and beds quite uncomfortable. But aside from that, the breakfast was freshly prepared and there is a lovely interior garden / courtyard which was great for pre-dinner drinks or to sit and have some quiet time. Nice little hotel in a good location - good for a short break.

I stayed in Bologna for one night on the 17th October the hotel is in an ideal location with the historic centre only 10 minutes walking distance. the weather was beautiful so I took one of the bikes available at the hotel and cycled around the city. The room was really comfortable and the hotel was really cosy I woke up with the sun beaming onto the terracotta buildings outside my window i stayed in room 420. There was a great choice for breakfast and the staff could not have been more welcoming. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This is a lovely boutique hotel in Bologna. Near everything, about 15 minutes to the Piazza Maggiore which is a wonderful place to watch the world go by.
Standard Rooms can be small but that is typical of the continent.
Rooms are adequate, bathroom ok, shower, no bath.
There is a lovely courtyard to the breakfast area and the breakfast room is nice and comfortable.If it is warm you can eat outside, which we did for the whole week. Nice selection of eggs, ham and cheese, plenty of fruit and great Italian coffee.
There are 48 rooms in the hotel, with plenty of superior rooms which look great and some suites.
The big advantage is the location. Out the door and turn right and head downtown. Plenty of coffee shops and shopping malls on the way.
Out the door and left and left again is a more interesting route downtown.
Bologna is a very safe city and we walked back to the hotel most evening after midnight and no problems.
Staff are very nice and helpful especially at reception.
Right opposite is the best restaurant in Bologna that we found, and best value, the Osteria - see separate review.
I would recommend this hotel, nice and comfortable and relaxed.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a balcony overlooking the courtyard.

Good location with 2 good restaurants in the same street. We stayed for 4 nights. Our rooms looked into the courtyard and were quite; however, they could do with just a little TLC. Breakfast was OK although the scrambled eggs and bacon were very disappointing and there were not enough tables at peak time. Nevertheless, we loved our stay and would recommend the hotel

Away from the very centre, in a small quiet street, but only a short walk into town. Very comfortable room and excellent buffet breakfast with all the options. Some ‘green space’ in the rear courtyard. Two good restaurants are very close, Very helpful staff and reasonable price. Thoroughly recommended
