          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.

          Como arribamos a Bolonia temprano, y aún había sol, decidimos dar una vuelta por la ciudad para recorrerla sin lluvia.

          Caminando por el centro llegamos nuevamente hasta las dos Torres y dijimos "por que no?" y subimos hasta la Torre Asinelli que es la que tiene casi 100 metros de alto.

          Luego de 498 escalones llegué a la cima y les …

          Arribamos a Bolonia poco antes del mediodía y nos recibió una lluvia que fue persistente a lo largo de toda la jornada.

          Afortunadamente tuvimos a favor dos cosas: el hotel está muy cerca de la estación y la ciudad tiene gran parte de sus aceras cubiertas con arcadas al estilo "recova", por lo cual prácticamente no nos mojamos.
