While traveling from Milan to Le Marche, Italy due to airline and train delays we had to spend the night in Bologna. I booked the hotel online while still on the train and when I showed up close to 1:00 AM we were given a large, comfortable and extremely quiet room. This hotel has some of the best noise insulating... More

This hotel provided parking but there was very little space and we almost scratched our car in the car park. Breakfast/rooms were fair. Nothing extraordinary but it is a good hotel short walk to central part of Bologna.

This hotel situated opposite the main trains station in Bologna. There is also a bus service to and from the airport there.Noticed lots of Airline staff over nighting as its about 20 minutes from airport and a good hotel. Staff very pleasant and helpful. The main shopping area and tourist attractions close by. Would stay there again.

This was my third stay at the hotel in the last 12 months. The location is directly opposite the station,this gives you the opportunity to use Italys fantastic rail services. The hotel is a 20 euro taxi ride from the airport or a 6 euro bus ride, both easy to find at the airport and for return. The hotel was... More

Good price! Nice hotel with good thin and soft pilows and matrace without bedsore. I was stay in De luxe double room. Good location-near station and big street but quiet. Breakfast with good food selection. Just one inconvenience- parking price is higher than in Venice....

The hotel is opposite the central train station. This makes getting around to other local towns easy. The local airport bus service runs regularly so for 6 euros you can get from the airport to the hotel. The centre of Bolonga is a 10 minute walk from the hotel with lots of restaurants near by. We stayed for 5 nights... More

Excelsior is fine. Ticks the boxes. Does exactly what it says on the tin. Rooms are OK. Breakfast buffet. Modern lobby area. Err.... ...that's the problem, though. It's soulless. As a guest you feel like more of a statistic than a customer. I didn't have a single meaningful interaction with a staff member during our 3 nights there; no one... More

We chose this hotel as we have stayed at Star Hotels a few times before. We were not disappointed. The room was excellent, breakfast extremely satisfactory. The location on the other side of the road for the train station was brilliant s we were heading to Naples and it was just over 3 hours on the amazing Frecciarossa train. We... More

Hotel is across the street from the train station and close to shopping. The room is clean and quiet with good air conditioning. Staff is friendly and very helpful with our luggage and car. This was our second stay in this hotel and would return again.

My partner, Theresa, and I spent eight nights in this hotel from May 22 to 30, 2015. We chose it for its ideal location as we wanted to use the trains to visit Modena, Parma, Mantova and Ravenna, and we accomplished all of these visits as well as having time to explore Bologna itself. The Reception Staff made us most... More
