I've just got back from a week in Bologna and I will definitely be heading back. The hotel was fantastic. Our junior suite was cleaned thoroughly every day, beautifully decorated and had a big bathroom too. The breakfasts were outstanding - fresh fruit salads, cakes, croissants, pain au chocolats, scrambled eggs and meats, coffee, tea, hot chocolate etc. The seating...

We had the opportunity to spend a couple of days in Bologna this month, as part of a larger trip. We didn't pick this hotel - we were meeting close friends of ours who were going to be there. But it was a fantastic choice! Probably the only downside for us is that we had a third floor room, without...

We booked this hotel based on Trip Advsor reviews , for 2 nights in July. This is truly The Place to stay when you are in Bologna. The atmosphere , ambience, service - everything was absolutely amazing. The best part of the day was the breakfast in the garden restaurant - very authentic and romantic - with reasonable choice of...

We stayed here for 2 nights in order to experience Bologna. It is a small hotel with separate apartments. They put us in one of the apartments which was a huge by European standards. A room with loft bedroom. Because it was on the top floor in the back it was exceptionally quiet. The staff and owner were very nice...

From the moment we arrived in Bologna at San Mamolo we were made the feel welcome. The staff were really friendly and we were directed to our room which was beautifully decorated, large and comfortable bed and a small garden at the back. Breakfast was simple but delicious and taken in the picturesque garden at the back of the hotel....

My wife and I are travel guides and bring a small group to Italy each year. This year while we were in Bologna, we discovered this jewel of a boutique hotel. Bright and cheery with lovely yellow tones, flowers everywhere, great breakfasts and a staff that is friendly and informed. What else could you ask for. We highly recommend this...

I met up with friends in Bologna. We loved the nice bathrooms, comfy beds, and well appointed rooms. And when eating canteloupe in the lovely garden we asked for a spoon and voila - forks, spoons, plates, and napkins. How sweet.

We had a wonderful week at the Porta San Mamolo. The staff were all extremely pleasant, helpful and thoughtful - for example, we left a bottle of wine to chill in the fridge in our room and came back in the evening to find two wine glasses had been set out for us. We had a lovely large 2nd floor...

This was one of the nicest hotels we stayed in on our entire month-long trip. Bologna was a joy and has exquisite restaurants, which the hotel staff will recommend with enthusiasm and careful directions. Hotel service was superb and room was large for the price in Italy and nicely appointed. Very kind and professional staff. Lovely garden breakfast. Old hotel...

Loved staying here. Rooms are arranged around a terrace which is perfect for reading and relaxing. Rooms themselves are very well-equipped. Location is 15-20 minutes' walk from the station and only 5 minutes from the city centre. Best of all, you're only 5 minutes from La Sorbetteria Castiglione with the best gelatti on Earth.
