“A night in Bologna.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

This review is actually based on my travel in February 2013.
We arrived in Bologna by train to take a flight the next day. Choose Nuovo Hotel del Porto for our one night stay because of its close proximity to the station. With kids and a few suite cases, we had a bit of difficulty finding the hotel in the night but it's not far from the station on foot.
The reception is small but the staff is friendly. For two adults and three children, we were accommodated in a two bedroom apartment which is located in a building around the corner from the hotel. We were given the key and explained how to reach the apartment. It would have been better if we were led to the place as we were tired and struggled to open the door. However we found the place very clean and welcoming with a lounge, fitted kitchen and a nice bathroom. It even had a washing machine and the iron. We had a very good sleep.

The next morning we went to the hotel's dinning hall for the complementary breakfast which was quite nice. The city square is few minutes walk from the hotel and there are a number of restaurants and cafés around.

In short, we enjoyed visiting Bologna and staying in this hotel.

A nice hotel with friendly staff. The room was pleasant with a nice small balcony. The hotel is close to city centre and has parking in a secure area opposite hotel. reat breakfast included which had the best selection of any hotel we stayed in in our trip around Italy
The lift is not the quickest - We were on the 4th floor. My wife took the stairs while I waited for and used the lift. She got there first..

There is a laundry (Lava e Lava) about 7 minutes walk at Via Azzo Gardino, 6.

This is a very old hotel, our room was quite small, very old fashion deco, renovated bathroom but with a tiny shower and a door which blocked so we had to push hard to close it!

The room smelled cigarettes when we arrived even if it is meant to be non smoking.

The breakfast room is small so the second day we had to wait for a table to get free. The breakfast is very very basic and very basic quality!

The area is not nice, with an ugly building opposite the hotel. We were received at 1am by a night receptionist not very pleasant or smiley.

The location was good, at 10 mins from the main square and 10 mins from the train station.

I guess it`s along the lines of you get what you pay for but there seems to be quite a difference in the standard of the rooms and wildly varying discrepancies in different room reviews.
We chose this hotel for ease of access to the station and the position was good, about halfway between the station and town centre and comfortable walking distance to both.
Our room was small and pokey with hardly room to store our cases. Peeling wallpaper and miniscule bathroom completed the picture.
Our front room was reasonably quiet apart from the early morning deliveries at the supermarket across the road and bed was comfortable.
We arrived quite late and our request for a balcony room could not be fulfilled. Probably a good idea to make this request before arrival as these rooms seem to be better and the management photos look amazing.
Breakfast room was far too small for the number of rooms and the first morning we had to wait for a table to become available although the server really tried to be helpful.

Room Tip: Request room before arrival

We only had the one night in Bologna, arriving latish that evening from Finland. We chose this hotel because it was close to the old town but only twenty minutes by hired car from the airport. Another bonus was the secure, locked car park charged at a reasonable amount per night. Before leaving for our next destination, we had some time to walk around Bologna centre. The room was fine and the service friendly and helpful. My wife left a jacket in the room, but when she phoned the next day from Garda, they dealt with the problem promptly and found it. We picked it up on our way back to Bologna Airport at the end of our holiday.

We arrived to a friendly and helpful welcome and everything about our stay was good. Room on the 5th floor was clean,comfortable and had a great view over the city. The breakfast had plenty of choice although the breakfast room is a little small.
The staff were a great help to us finding various places although everything is within walking distance of the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room at the rear of the hotel for a great view.

Is hotel is ideally located less than 10 minutes walk from the main train station and bus station towards the old town centre. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was enjoyable and plentiful. Staff friendly. Only slight downside was the wifi dropped out every 30 seconds, but that's first world problems really.

Would definitely use again.
