We found the Starhotels Excelsior on TripAdvisor, and liked the reviews and price. So we booked and stayed for 4 nights Oct, 2014. This hotel is very conveniently located directly across the street from the train station, and next to Porta Galliera and Via Dell'Indipendenza into the center of the old town. On our arrival the front desk staff were... More

This was our second visit to Bologna and the Excelsior. All positive. Quiet hotel with great breakfast and good-sized room. Stayed five nights, enjoyed all of it, will stay there again. It is a three minute walk to the train station. Special thanks to the staff for the upgrade to the room on the 7th floor upon checking in (we... More

We selected the hotel based on its location across from the train station, and were very pleased with the decision. The location is excellent, as in addition to the train station, it is only 20 minutes or so to the historic center. Our room was large, spotless, well maintained and - despite proximity to main road and station - very... More

It is hard to put into words how wonderful this hotel is. This was one of four hotels we stayed in during this holiday. It was by far the best in every way! Everything from the friendly, courteous, multilingual staff to the amazing room and hotel facilities, as well as the beautiful and varied food available at breakfast. This was... More

I booked this hotel because I was going to be staying in Bologna on a business trip for 6 nights. After looking for a nice hotel close to the city centre I found this one that looked to be a very high class hotel for a reasonable price. When I arrived I was very taken aback since the hotel doesn't... More

We stayed at the Starhotels Excelsior for 3 nights in September. If you are traveling by train it is a perfect location, right across from the train station. It is a beautiful, modern hotel with everything you could need. Spacious rooms, very clean, coffee and tea provisions in the rooms, nice bathrooms. The breakfast has lots of choices, good service....

We arrived at the Starhotel in Bologna via train – the train station is directly across the street from the hotel. Check in to the hotel was easy, the woman who took care of us was very friendly and efficient. She offered us a free upgrade to a Junior Suite in a room that had recently be refurbished. The room...
