The location is handy for the railway station and airport, not so much for the city centre, which is about 20mins on foot. Our room was fairly large and well appointed, with all usual amenities. Service was generally friendly and efficient, although having only one member of staff serving the breakfast buffet with five others standing around seemed rather odd. When I pointed this out, the manager walked away shrugging his shoulders. It was excellent value, though - joining their loyalty programme unlocks some excellent deals directly through their website.
Choose Star Hotel for a 4 day visit to Bologna and do not regret it. Very clean room, helpful staff and extremely near to train station. Central to all areas of interest in Bologna and shops and markets just minutes away.
I chose Starhotels for my 5 nights in Bologna because, apart from arriving and departing by train, I planned to also use the train for day trips to Parma, Ravenna & Ferrara. It was super convenient and, although I could see the hustle and bustle of the train station from my window, it was perfectly peaceful inside. It was also an easy stroll along a main street into the historic centre of beautiful Bologna. The staff were friendly and eager to please, particularly in the breakfast room. And the breakfast was fabulous! Mmmm, the cheesecake!!
Nice rooms, nice facilities. Near the train station. 20 minutes to down town by the walk.But Hotel main entrance is very unuseful. Especially any escape due to any abnormal situation like fire or etc. it is dangerous.
In my opinion this hotel deserves a better grade. We stayed 4 nights here and we were really pleased with our choice. We were greeted by a friendly receptionist, checked in with professionalism. Then our room,large clean room,with a separate dressing closet super extra convenient and with lots of space for your luggage.Large comfortable bed,large clean bathroom with all the amenities. Only thing missing was sleepers and bathrobes but we got them after asking the reception. The breakfast is served in a very large space and his very satisfying.There really is a great choice of food enough to please everyone, from fruits to salad, to pastries etc etc.The staff is very prompt to serve your coffee or help you in anyway. We also ate two times at the restaurant that is very warm and cosy space with a great atmosphere.We had complimentary prosecco on the 1rst of January and again the staff is very kind and the food is not bad at all which is not always the case in hotel restaurants. First of january being my birthday,they had a small presnt delivered to my room with a kind note, which i found very nice and touching. The situation of the hotel is simply fantastic.One step from the train station which means convenient if you want to go to Pisa or Florence.One step from the shuttles that go to the airport.One step from the bus that goes to Fico Italy, and super close to the city center. For us Star Hotel Excelsior was a perfect choice and we would stay there again with no hesitation.…
