I Portici Hotel
Ranked #23 of 102 Hotels in Bologna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 July 2014

This is really a special hotel with the only one star Michelin restaurant in Bologna. Unfortunately this was fully booked (make sure you book in advance, it really is worth it). This is surprising, since the city has a lot to offer in dining. The hotel offers a good mix between modern luxury (although not overdone) and Italian authenticity. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You feel at home. There is a pleasant teraas and lounge bar to have drinks. Our room 408 was noisy so avoid a room near the street but reserve one at the back since it was noisy. Our children did not have that problem. Breakfast with fresh orange juice (nice change!) in the Miche;in star restaurant which has a nice atmosphere.

Room Tip: Choose a hotel away from the street. It tends to be noisy otherwise.

Upfront, the hotel looks like an awesome deal to good to be true. Altough not dissappointed, the costs including parking and breakfast turned out to be a lot higher (43 EUR surcharge for two people). The hotel design is on the spot (with the exception of the terrible all-black uniforms of the staff) but the rooms are a bit sterile. The breakfast is not too bad, but I would have expected a bit more eating from a kitchen of a michelin starred restaurant. What we got was the same type of food you would get at a Best Western, yet with better ingredients. Nevertheless, the location is fantastic and I would come back to this hotel again when visiting Bologna.

This hotel does not show itself from outside. You should be in and stay there to discover this hidden beauty. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Some of the rooms have high ceilings. The hotel is a part of an old theater. You have the chance to have your breakfast in front of the theater scene where the ceiling is high with old mural. They have a Michellin star restaurant. Although I have not tried, it looked very nice.

We loved this hotel! Comfortable everything functioned superb staff lovely breakfast at 10€ per person.
The welcome drink was a nice unexpected touch and good wines, not rubbish. As it was raining heavily we ate in the Terrace bar very good food.
Impressed by that we bit the bullet for the outstanding Michelin starred restaurant on our second night. Expensive, formal dining but outstanding value. A similar meal in London would be twice the price. Compliments to the chef and the restaurant team for a very memorable meal.
Overall we would unhesitatingly recommend this hotel for couples. This hotel is not for backpackers. Don't come with small children or noisy kids - it isn't for you!

We had a very successful 3 night stay at I Portcini Hotel. A good room size, beautiful (Very) high ceiling with frieze, excellent breakfast and very friendly staff made our stay memorable. Well located, within less than 10 minutes walk to the Bologna Centrale station, this hotel is very god value. Recommend the Terrazo restaurant.

Hotel location, cleanliness and comfort were excellent. Staff were very pleasant and helpful, particularly Simone at reception. Great spread for breakfast, stylish terrace bar. Michelin star restaurant on premises. We'll be back.

We were very pleased with our stay. The service was impeccable, the rooms were pleasantly designed. We ate at the restaurant which had a fantastic ambience, during the summer. We have been traveling for the past two weeks and so far this has been the best value. I could not recommend it enough for your overnight stay in Bologna.
