“Lovely!”
Reviewed 26 May 2012

The entire staff was friendly and helpful. Reception staff recommended restaurants and walking tours, since this was our first trip to Bologna. The hotel grounds are lush and colorful, the room was spacious, comfortable and beautifully furnished, and the breakfast area was lovely for both the full breakfast and for an evening get-together with friends. We spent two nights, and if ever in Bologna again (which we would love!) will definitely stay here!

Room Tip: All rooms seem comfortable and quiet. Our room looked out onto a street where children were playing...

First time in Bologna. Stayed for 2 nights in May 2012. Requested a garden room and room 401 is right next to the outdoor eating area & gardens. No noise from eating area though; very peaceful. It was a spacious room even by American standards, and nice and clean. I would describe decorating as 'shabby chic'. Was visited by cat! Staff was helpful and booked a taxi for me to get to airport at 5am. Within walking distance to Piazaa San Maggiore, although I did take digital pictures along the way so I could find my way back. When stores are closed with the shutters down it looks a lot different than when they are open.

Our stay at Hotel Porta San Mamolo was superb! First time in Bologna -- they always made us feel so welcome! We were in a top floor room with sky light windows -- very airy and delightful. Staff had great command of English and were patient with our limited Italian. Very near to center of town, convenient parking for your car in a garage down the street, beautiful breakfast room and courtyard garden area, and excellent recommendations for dinner each night. We couldn't have been happier!

We agree with other reviewers that the Reception staff - and, in fact, all the staff - were exceptionally friendly, warm and helpful. Good restaurant recommendations. Comfortable, spacious room. Loved the garden and the breakfast room with the attractive outdoor tables as an option.

I thoroughly recommend Hotel Porta San Mamola to any travellers. The staff were so friendly and helpful and seem to make sure guests feel special.
A big bonus was the outdoor garden area which was perfect to sit out in with a glass of wine at the end of a busy day.
The breakfast area is more like a fabulous cafe than a hotel restaurant.
I would most certainly return here if I come back to Bologna.

Hotel is wonderful- lots of character. Beautiful gardens. 30 minute walk from train station, bus station. However it is possible to catch city circuit bus around to bus stop near hotel. Very helpful and polite staff, except for one older gentleman- rather rude and abrupt but we only ran into him one morning. Lady who works in the breakfast room, was very helpful with shopping areas. Room was great- lots of character and very clean. Breakfast fabulous- bacon, eggs, cold meats, pastries etc.

It is well positioned, clean and friendly. All members of staff have a pleasant manner towards guest. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. They will go out of the way to accommodate your needs. They gave me an impression that nothing is more important to this hotel than a happy and content guest. Breakfast was very good too. Food was fresh and with impressive variety. Again you ask for cappuccino or espresso and it appears in from of you almost instantly. Tables are cleared immediately after diners finish their breakfast so there is no mess or untidy appearance to anything. Rooms are comfortable, some have private outside space. Hotel garden is available to every guest, so if you try to read or just wish to seat outside in the fresh air, there are lots of tables available. You can order a bottle of wine from the hotel but if you buy one outside hotel will provide wine glasses free of charge. Reception always gladly gives advice about restaurants, places to see and anything else you might wish to know. I recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting Bologna. If I travel to Bologna again I will definitely stay in Hotel Porta San Mamolo and eat in one of great restaurants they recommended.

Room Tip: We stayed in 208 which had a private patio. Ask for the room facing garden or courtyard.
