          Conveniently located opposite the main station in Bologna, is ideal for those wanting to move by train since just cross the street since there to haul almost luggage. The rooms are large, comfortable and soundproof. Breakfast is served in the basement and is abundant with bread. fruits, meats, eggs and juices. While having a business profile, can accommodate 4 people per room, making it ideal for families. The only thing I did not like is that surroundings, especially at night, are not very attractive for walking, but it's just a small detail

          Starhotels Excelsior was a really great hotel - directly across the street from the Train Station yet the room was quiet and dark at night. Staff was especially helpful.

          Excellent hotel that runs great specials

          from

          This was the nicest hotel we stayed at on a 5 city Italian trip. The rooms were absolutely beautiful with hardwood floors and paneling, the service was knowledgeable and friendly, and the amenities (workout room, included buffet breakfast, free internet connection downstairs) were superb. The location, right across the street from the train station, makes it a great base to explore Florence or Venice from.We stayed in the first week of June, 2003 when the hotel was offering special rates of under 100 dollars; I would be tempted to stay there again even at twice the price.

          Starhotel Excelsior is very comfortable and convenient

          from

          My husband and I have just spent a week at the Starhotel Excelsior in Bologna and had a very enjoyable stay. The facilities and service were excellent, as was the food. Apart from a very good breakfast each day, we also used the Avorio restaurant one evening, and found the style and standard definitely gourmet. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. The hotel is very conveniently located opposite the station, which is the terminus for the airport bus and also makes travel to other towns in the area (or, indeed, elsewhere in Italy) very easy. The main park is close by and it's only a 15 minute walk to the centre of Bologna, which we found a very beautiful and civilised city.

          Public transportation in Italy is phenomenal. You really could live here without a car. We decided to take the FrecciaRossa (high speed) from Bologna to Bari. This train can travel along at 300 Km/hr. about 180 MPH. The trip took about 5 hours and was absolutely wonderful. The seats were very comfortable and there was ...

It is aged at least 12 years and some bottles I sampled were aged 24 years! Oh my....sweet, intense---yum.

We're running out of time--cappuccino is ordered only in the morning. My first cappuccino in Bologna was ordered and delivered around 11:00 a.m.today. Lovely.

          Four years ago Sean and I made our first grand adventure, staying with families all over the world. Several of these families grew near-and-dear to our hearts, particularly our first family in Bosco Del Fracasso, of Italy. In September 2011, Sean and I spent three amazing weeks on Anna and Maurizio's family farm where we helped to pick the family's grapes, learned ...
