My husband, guide dog and I finished our European trip at this hotel. The hotel staff upgraded us to a junior suite (which was lovely), but charged us 35 euros for my hubby's guide dog. Which was the first time we'd been charged for him. We were offered a breakfast baggie for the next morning because we were leaving so... More

So we explained the situation to the hotel and wanted to change our dates.We didn't asked them to return our money but to make a... More

Stayed in this beautiful hotel for 4 night. Ideally located opposite the station and close to the shops and restaurants. The staff are friendly and very helpful and always had time for a chat. This is a lovely hotel and great value for money.

My boyfriend and I visited Bologna twice already and are going very soon again. Our immediate choice for a hotel is Star Hotel Excelsior. It is across the road from Central station, very convenient after travelling to other cities and being tired to just cross the street and arrive at the hotel. The rooms are very spacious, comfortable and clean.... More

A busy hotel right next to the main train station with a short walk to the shopping district. The personnel were friendly and helpful (particularly the food service personnel). The room was very clean although the bathroom was a little bit "battered". The rooms were extremely well insulated from noise - both interior (hotel corridors and other rooms) and exterior.

Decent hotel. It is affordable and located near the train station. For some reason they have a switch which opens the window in the room. Of course it is next to the light switch which makes for an interesting experience.
