      Too hot! No AC otherwise it was very nice. Biggest room we have had so far.

      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.

      Great town. It is my favourite Italian town so far. The others prefer Florence to Bologna but not me. I like the wide streets and bigger shops. The people are very chic and stylish and very friendly. They love their dogs and there are plenty of dogs of all types and sizes wandering around. Surprisingly, not that much doggy dos. Either the Bog Dogs are constipated or there is a doggy do fairy running around with a bag because I don't see many ...

      ... Gentileshci. After nearly three hours she came out dazed and happy. So much so that even after a refreshing glass, and a relax in the hotel, she could not get her head together enough to order dinner! She reckoned she was on a (legal!!) high. (and we have 3 more weeks of this...Michael quipped). Dinner was taken at one of the several trattoria near the hotel, and was very good, as well as being surprisingly cheap compared to the city centre only a short distance ...

      ... snow had gone, and the sky was a brilliant clear blue, but the day was very cold. Thank goodness for our new coats. Today we simply toured around gazing in awe at the buildings and taking photo after photo. No galleries today, but the splendour of the churches and the two (that's right, two) cathedrals were enough on their own. We broke for coffee and croissants before finishing our round of the city at the church of ...
