I have stayed at a lot of Bologna hotels over the last year and this has to be one of the finest. Very well located - the staff are great and the restaurant is really good - would not really think of staying anywhere else

Excellent hotel, great value. Used it due to location near the station while travelling on from Bologna . Rooms comfortable and well serviced. Very quiet, had a room overlooking the station but no noise. Airport buses leaves from the station, taxis available 15 euros. 10/15 stroll into centre. Good breakfast included in room price.

Very clean and pleasant hotel in a great location for the Railway station. We stayed here as a first hotel after landing at the airport approximately 6 miles away. The staff were very efficient and the hotel itself was well maintained and clean.

Like many people, we chose to stay at this hotel because it is so close to the train station. Our experience was generally ok, but our room (and our entire floor it seemed) stank of old smoke, and the shower flooded each time we used it. We were woken both mornings by the sound of slamming doors, which made our... More

In general, this is a very good hotel and I am likely to stay here again in the future. Location: This hotel is just opposite the Bologna Centrale station, thus was great for a one-night stay when we stopped by the city while we traveled from Florence to Verona. But for those who want to stay for longer in Bologna... More

We wanted a hotel near the city center and at the same time we wanted some good reviews and a place where we could park our car quite easily. Going through the reviews we ended up with Starhotels Excelsior, which was located near the central station. Parking was in the backyard and it was quite tight to get in there... More

We stayed here for two days, and overall, we had an excellent experience. The triple room we had was large and well looked after. The breakfast is fantastic and caters for most tastes. They serve an excellent espresso. The location is great, as it's opposite the main train station and only a few steps from shopping and the old city.... More

It was our first visit to Bologna but definitely not the last! I picked the hotel because of its convenient location, across from the train station, with airport bus stopping right in front of it. The hotel was large and modern but not too crowded. It had all amenities necessary for comfortable and worry free holiday. All the staff were... More
