"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."
"Our stay at the Starhotel Excelsior was superb.All the staff were very friendly and helpful. First class service from a first class hotel which exceeded all our expectations.
Starhotels Excelsior Hotel in Bologna "Hotel on the opposite side of the station. Warm welcome with tea and coffee making facilities. Nothing to complain about, everything was perfect."
"Out of all the hotels I booked with Venere, this was the best one of all. The pictures were true to the actual site which I found was not the case every time. This is a great a hotel with a great location!"
"The hotel is just in front of the station. 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 !!!"
"I have never slept so soundly and heard nothing when staying right next to a busy station complex in the centre of a city. . I could highly recomend this hotel !"
"The Star Excelsior was a really great hotel and the rate from venere was excellent for the quality of the hotel. Our room was really spacious, clean and modern and the overall style of the hotel was of a high standard."
"At the venere rate it is a great hotel at a great price, good location easy to walk into the centre. Clean modern yet stylish decor. The hotel is easy to get to by car and if you are arriving by train it is over the road."
"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."
"We enjoyed our stay in Starhotel Excelsior from the first to the last minute very much. An excellent equipped hotel with friendly, competend and English speaking staff. Especially the rooms were much more than we had expected. Until we paid our bill we could not believe that we got such a fine hotel for such a low rate. Thanks to Starhotels and to venere!!!"
"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!"
"Good value for money reserving on Venere."
"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: venere rate was a quarter of the rate displayed in the foyer. Quiet room at the back of the hotel. Would certainly stay here again."
