I Portici Hotel Bologna
This lovely hotel is conveniently located on handy Via Independenza that takes you to all of Bologna’s attractions, and near the train station. It is right by Parco della Montagnola park, perfect for exercising or taking relaxing strolls. The recently renovated classical building has beautiful interiors with a contemporary and cozy décor. The in-house restaurant attracts non-guests for its delicious food, gardens views and mellow live music some days of the week. In general bedrooms are good in size, but we saw one or two options, which seemed a bit tight, so if space is an issue make sure you mention upon booking and perhaps try a suite with a balcony overlooking the gardens. Staff is very helpful and will surely run the extra mile to assist your needs.
