We all know that first impressions are very important and this time, Silvia from the reception made all the difference. Thank you Silvia for the great room you gave me, on the 3rd floor with a beautiful balcony to the gardens and via Indipendenza. The room was spacious, bright, with a beautiful ceiling, very clean, comfortable bed and decent bathroom. Free wi-fi with very good speed anywhere in the hotel was a plus.
I had 4 dinners at "La Terrazza" Bistro and the quality was very good for a fair price - the “spuma di mascarpone” for desert was delicious.
Breakfast was very decent, with fresh squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit and yoghurts. I would suggest some variety of bread as we only have white bread available. The breakfast room was amazing, the old theatre beautifully restored (as the rest of the hotel) with the stage and a piano.
Location is great, just 10 minutes walk to the city centre, lots of shops in via Indipendenza.
I stayed 6 nights for business purposes and I will definitely be back.

Room Tip: If you have trouble sleeping, ask for a room facing the garden. Via Indipendenza can be a bit noisy.

Mixed feelings about this one.
Likes
Location good (but essentially hotel central)
Clean and interesting refurb of an old building
Quality breakfast (restaurant meant to be excellent but shut on the night I was there)
Free wi-fi (worth the extra dot)
Pretty decorated ceilings
Dislikes
As others said, noisy if people walk around above
Sparse, minimalist rooms ill-suited to the overall building (e.g. hanging rack instead of a wardrobe)
At times looks like a spooky building out of a Stephen King novel
Very slow check-out process

OK is rate is good....amazed it's part of SLH though.

will you be able to sleep in peace. The rooms have no carpets and if you are unlucky to have someone above you with high heels say goodbye to your chance of sleeping. Also, make sure your room faces the garden, not the main street.

Apart from that, breakfast is good and the location is convenient.

I've stayed in this hotel for one night. It was a business travel. The location is absolutely perfect. The ambiance of the hotel was impressing. Staff was not polite. Breakfast was OK. Computer in business center is free. However the rooms are very small! Rooms have no carpet! Small TV had 5 channels. The refrigerator was working like a tractor. Doesn't let you sleep so I pulled out the plug. The room was cold in the autumn. The Hotel doesn't let you to control the air conditioner. Close to the airport; 15 minutes. There were a lot of hotels on the same street. I'm sure there are better ones.

Gentile Ospite,

mi spiace se il suo soggiorno non ha corrisposto pienamente alle sue aspettative.

Al fine di non trasmettere un messaggio fuorviante alla community di Tripadvisor è' mia personale premura precisare quanto segue:

Le dimensioni ed il design delle nostre camere è evidente sul nostro sito e sui principali canali on e off-lin: camere singole con letto francese (120 cm) 12-18mq - camere doppie 22-35mq;

I minibar delle nostre camere, per quanto non siano eccessivamente rumorosi, saranno presto sostituiti con un modello nuovo;

I nostri TV hanno un portafoglio di più di 20 canali, metà dei quali sono internazionali;

Per ragionevoli questioni di igiene abbiamo preferito non avere la moquette. Il pavimento delle nostre camere è in parquet oppure in pregiato marmo palladiana.

Un'ulteriore perplessità riguarda il suo giudizio sul nostro staff, il quale - come segnalato dagli innumerevoli recensori della community di Tripadvisor - si è sempre mostrato cortese e professionale. Ovviamente, sono a sua completa disposizione, qualora ritenesse opportuno comunicarmi maggiori informazioni a riguardo.

Spero di averla nuovamente come nostro ospite; sono certo che saremo in grado di superare le sue perplessità.

Cordiali saluti,

Pasquale Noli
Sales Department
I Portici Hotel Bologna

We were told when we check in he chose a "quiet" room for us. When we walked in the room around 1PM, the room was very very dark. There was a tiny little window that faced the courtyard. The room was clean and quiet, but it didn't feel very comfortable. The breakfast was also very expensive (30euros), which we did not get, so it could be worth it?

The location was great. Walking distance to great restaurants and other sites.
