    Excellent location, very clean , large bedroom

    Limited facilities, unimaginative breakfast, mediocre restaurant and unstaffed bar. Reception not always very helpful.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Location right next to railway station, close to city facilities. Room of good standard, clean and tidy. Good breakfast range, staff at desk very helpful.

    No issues at all with hotel, recommend to fellow travellers

  • Older travelers

    helpful staff, enough facilities, favorable location

    old equipment

  • Couple
    8.8

    The hotel was perfectly located across the street from the train station which for us was perfect because we took day trips out of Bologna 2 of the 3 days that we were there. Were this not during a time of year that Bologna was mostly shut down for the holiday this hotel would be very inconvenient as far as location to the heart of the city but since we spent little time in town it worked out perfectly.

    Not recommended for pleasure trips much more geared towards business

  • Single
    6.6

    Room very clean, great location

    Breakfast was poor, needs better restaurant and/or dining facilties and urgent updating of TV equipment and cable facilities.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Location across street from railroad station.

    Didn't like the fact that one had to be in the Hotel Lobby to use the Wi-Fi. Also, lunch on arrival in the dining room was too expensive. Would have done better outside the hotel.

  • Single
    5.8

    I am business man always my trips for business but Starhotel his normal prices is logic but when there is exhibition the prices multiplay in 5 which is very bad.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Staff was incredibly kind, flexible and smiling, while also being well informed and qualified. Internet in the rooms should bé free of charge.

  • Single
    8.8

    Staff extremely professional and friendly. I forgot my phone in the room and they are now working with me to ship it back. Rooms large and geared for business travel. Clean beds. Excellent location across the street from the train station and walking distance to the main sights. Easy access to airport bus. Nice gym.

    Paid movies did not work, but there were a variety of free television channels.

  • Couple
    7.4

    the receptionist was extremely helpful in picking out good restaurants for us.

    the breakfast could have been better. I find the breakfast to be below average with choices being very limited.

  • Group of friends

    Opposite the station and comfortable

  • Group of friends

    This was our second stay at Starhotels Excelsior. I rated it a 10 the first time and have no reason to change that rating for this stay. I look forward to staying there again. For convenience, comfort, cleanliness, staff, breakfast, peace and quiet it can't be beat. Directly across the street from Bologna Centrale train station and a pleasant 3 minute walk into the city centre, it is the ideal location. The staff is highly professional, friendly, helpful and welcoming. The rooms are comfortable, well-proportioned, clean and quiet. Everything functions perfectly. The buffet breakfast is enormous with abundant choices of sweet or savoury, hot or cold food. The dining room is comfortably spacious and attractive and all of the hotels many services make for a totally enjoyable experience. If you're going to the wonderful city of Bologna, you could not ask for a better hotel to call home.

    There is nothing to dislike.

  • Couple
    9.2

    Very nice hotel. Clean, comfortable rooms, great value for money, centrally located. Whats more to ask?

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The hotel was very clean and modern. The room and particularly the bathroom were spacious compared to other European hotels we stayed at. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and great at recommending restaurants to eat at. The breakfast was also very good. The location was convenient for us because it is opposite the railway station, and from outside the railway station, you can also get a very regular bus to the airport.

    I have no negative comments about the hotel.

  • Family with children
    6.2

    Nice breakfast

    Room very hot a/c not working well. Small Room for 4 pax sofa bed uncomfortable.
