This hotel is honest and honorable. I had an issue, perhaps a simple misunderstanding and management went above and beyond to satisfy the situation. Besides this, breakfast is good, location great next to the train station. Makes it a great base for day trips outside Bologna.

Very conveniently located right across the street from the train station. No cab needed. Room was very clean. Bed was slightly harder than normal but I found this to be the case in other hotels I stayed in in Italy. Breakfast was okay.

A great location and kind staff. The room condition was good and also available some VIP benefits. The gym needs to be upgraded, but other facilities are fine. Will definitely stay again.

for a mistake they gave a reservation one month before and you charge me for tha nigth I WILL NOT GO BACK AGAIN TO THIS HOTEL

Big room, quiet and clean. Staff was very helpful and the breakfast was nice to have right in hotel. Hotel was right across from train terminal which was convenient if traveling by train. The town was a fifteen minute walk to center. It was a good hotel and I would recommend it.

We chose this hotel primarily for its location right by the train station. Despite the central location, the rooms were quiet in addition to being very comfortable. We also liked that it's near a park, and that the historic center of Bologna is only a 15 minute walk away. The only negative was dining--we were shooed away from the coffee shop when we arrived at mid-afternoon, and the breakfast buffet was only average. That said, I'll use the Starhotels Excelsior as my go-to the next time I'm in Bologna.

Had no idea what to expect. Reserved in a hurry. Was very pleasantly surprised. Staff very helpful. The internet worked, although a little slow for video conferencing.

Excellent location, near the railway station and airport shuttle. 20 minutes of pleasant walk to the center. A lot of restaurants nearby. Perfect and tasty breakfast, friendly staff.

This is a fabulous hotel in Bologna. Super close to the airport, across the street from the train station, and a 15 minute walk from the city center. The staff was very welcoming and provided great upgrades. The breakfast in the morning was delicious with Italian and continental options. The only thing I wish was that parking was included with the stay. Would go back for another visit.

We were able to locate the hotel right away. We walked to the sites. There was plenty of shopping.
