"The location of the hotel next to the train station was great and the room was wonderful and very quiet. The city centre was easy to walk to and the restaurant in the hotel has great service and food. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and their help in solving the problems caused by the closure of the Bologna airport was greatly appreciated."

The area is okay! 15 minutes walk away from the centre...The hotel is superb and posh, it looks like a 5 stars, no noise at all, the room was spacious and very elegant with a large bathroom with a second TV... Bologna is romantic and full of great restaurants to enjoy Bolognese food! WE WILL BE BACK !!!"

Starhotels Excelsior in Bologna Italy

"Our stay in Bologna was first-class. The hotel was well situated for all the main attractions, the railway and the airport. Overall the quality of the hotel was of a very high standard and, apart from the bar, which was pricey, was excellent value. We'll definitely stay there again."
"A truly luxurious hotel, with mini hi-fi system in the room to play your own CDs, whisper-silent air-con and a stylish breakfast room."
"One of the best hotels we have stayed in. Everything was excellent- the staff, the rooms, the location and the price. We had a fantastic time in Bologna and a big part of it was staying in the Starhotel Excelsior. We will definitely be back there!"
"Great hotel. I would stay there again. No complaints at all."
"This hotel was very good value for the price we paid. The rooms were comfortable, quiet and air-conditioned. Breakfast was excellent. The hotel is across the road from the railway station and a very good choice for anyone arriving in Bologna by rail."
"Unlike many hotels in the immediate vicinity of major railway stations, the Starhotel Excelsior is an excellent property. Rooms were spacious and cleanliness firstrate. Air conditioning continuous and much quieter than in most US hotels we have stayed in. Buffet breakfast very good (hot and cold choices). Location extremely convenient, being immediately across the street from the railway station. Area not sleazy at all. Hotel within walking distance of the city centre. Overall a most enjoyable stay - a hotel to be recommended."
"The hotel was an outstanding value. The staff was helpful and courteous. Secure parking was available and within the premises. The hotel location is convenient if arriving by car or train. The 10 to 15 minute walk to the historical center provides the opportunity to see more of the city center and the university if these are of interest. Being across from the train station does not add noise within the hotel."
"This is by far one of the best buys in ALL OF ITALY! Should easily be 5 star hotel as most of the rooms are 100% renovated. Double glass on windows so can't hear a sound from the noise coming from across the street (train station). Location EXCELLENT 1 min walk from train station. Rooms were big, clean, modern, and staff is first rate. Bologna is also good central location for trips to virtually all major cities in Italy. 5 stars without question!"
"Immediately opposite the railway station, which was very convenient, and only a few minutes walk to the centre of the city. Very smart hotel, large room, immaculate bathroom. Towelling robes and matching bathroom slipper supplied! Large screen TV, good breakfast, tea making equipment in the room. Very good value."
