We have chosen to get a trip to Bologna because this city is located in the north-eastern part of Italy and has a lot of good connections by train to nice cities and regions. Taking into account this goal we booked hotel Excelsior which has an ideal position just opposite the main railway station named Bologna Centrale. We took a...

We chose this hotel because it was close to the station and the stop for the airport bus. It is also only a few minutes walk into the city centre. Any fears we had about outside noise soon evaporated because the room are triple glazed which guarantees a good nights sleep. The rooms and bathrooms were very spacious for a...

Room was comfortable enough, and can't beat the location straight across from the train station, but it ends there. It's a typical large hotel servicing conferences and corporate. The biggest disappointment was breakfast. Scrambled Eggs are not mean to be swimming in liquid, and bits of eggshell are not expected, but there. A poor breakfast experience is unfortunately the lasting...

We stayed for 4 nights at the Excelsior, and had a quiet room as requested. The room was very spacious and comfortable for all 4 of us, 2 kids , 6 and 8. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice with very attentive staff. The location is ideal with the station opposite and the bus station 5 minutes walk away,...

We initially hesitated about staying in a hotel so close to the train station but since we were traveling via train and we were only stayed for 2 nights, it was the perfect choice. Loved the place! The check-in was smooth and professional. we had booked via Agoda a deluxe double bedroom with breakfast. Bologna is a walkable city so...

Less than 50 meters from the Central Station and 15 minutes walk to the central square, it's ideally situated for a visit - especially as the airport bus (Arerobus) stops 40 meters away from the hotel entrance. The reception staff speak good English and are happy to offer advice and maps. Our upgraded Junior Suite was a good size with...

Right outside the station this place is very handy. 20 minutes walk to the old city. Breakfast is forgettable. Prices fair. Pity the zircon wasn't on but in reality that wasn't a major problem for us, although it was for those on the front of the hotel.

The hotel is OK, but nothing more. The best thing is its location, if you are travelling by train. It's located literally at the opposite of the main train station, so you can simply walk, upon your arrival. Staff were friendly. We stayed 1 night and we were only given 24 hours wifi access; to be fair we didn't ask...

First time arrivals in Bologna. Checked into this hotel at 11:10 p.m. and the Reception handled our reservations excellently. Upon check in, you will be given a map of the city and your receptionist is way knowledgable so ask for their XLNT recommendations.
