4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed there 2 nights visiting Bologna. Easy to get to, as it is directly accross the street from train station. Hotel and room are in good condition, and bed is very comfortable. Decent selection at breakfast. Good place to stay.

Nice location. Good breakfast. Room is clean and comfortable.

way way over priced for the location very noisy. Small room had to wait for our room and really no facilities --pool etc. It was across from the train station and the breakfast was good but just as good hotels cheaper in the area

The hotel is in a perfect location - right across the street from the Bologna Central Station. From the hotel it is an easy walk to all the sights w/in Bologna. If walking isn't your thing, the bus system is simple, cheap and convenient. The room here was very well appointed and very comfortable. Great bed, great bathroom. All very clean. The internet provided in the room rate was mediocre, but it got emails and websites loaded. Just don't expect to download podcasts or anything of size, quickly. You can pay extra for high speed. Breakfast was very lovely and a generous spread. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Starhotels Excelsior Bologna.

I want to stress how attentive and nice is the staff at this hotel, above all in the breakfast hall, that by the way was perfect! The hotel is clean and the room was very quite and the size was perfect. In front at the Central Station and 5-10 minutes walk from Piazza Maggiore. I will return to this hotel. :)
