      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.

      ... The butter Joanna used was white. I asked if they had yellow butter and she said no - all butter is white. I a. Intrigued as to what the difference is. Also when we were preparing lunch there was a lot of noise from children outside Joanna's window. She explained that the school down the road had finished for the day - it was bout 1pm. It was a idle school and as they go to school 6 days a week, their days are shorter. The number of days and school times depend ...

      ... from 16th to 18th century. The anatomy theatre was amazing - this is where dissections of corpses (from the hospital next door ) would occur. I ventured out to a trattoria not far from the hotel for dinner. I had pasta and salmon which was ok - nothing to really rave about though. The place was really busy - reminded me of Lygon street in Melbourne - pull the customers in and then ship then out as soon as they have finished so you can reuse the table as quickly as possible. ...
