A comfortable stay

We only spent one night at the hotel, arriving around midnight and leaving at 9.30 a.m. We found the room to be large with a very large bathroom and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was plentiful with a good selection and every staff member we met was polite and efficient. The hotel is in an excellent location being a short taxi ride from the airport and opposite Bologna railway station. We would stay here again.

Business Trip

Excellent city location opposite the central railway station. The hotel is very modern, clean and comfortable. Despite being on a very busy road, there is no traffic noise in the public areas or in the bedrooms. We booked a non-smoking room but on arrival were sent to a smoking room. We returned to the desk to point out the problem and were immediately given an upgrade and a non-smoking room. The staff were all very helpful and all spoke good English. Although opposite the station, the old town with all the shops and good restaurants are about a 10 to 15 minute walk away. Good value and a good hotel. Will be happy to stay there again anytime.

Top-Hotel an Top-Lage

Pros: Alles
Cons: Wüsste nichts.
Location: In der Nähe des Bahnhofs. Mit einem 20minütigen Fussmarsch oder dem Bus ist man in der Altstadt.
Mein Zimmer befand sich auf der Rückseite des Hotels und war absolut ruhig gelegen. Die Einrichtung und das Bett haben voll meinen Ansprüchen entsprochen. Zu erwähnen ist auch das herrliche ,vielfältige Frühstück.

Hyvä hotelli aseman vieressä

Hyvä hotelli aseman vieressä. Lentokenttäbussi tuli / lähti asemalta. Pihan puoleinen huone oli todella hiljainen. Hyvä aamiainen. Ilmastointi puhalsi säädöistä huolimatta melko voimakkaasti.

Luotettavaa laatua

Excelsior Bologna -hotelli osoittautui laadukkaaksi valinnaksi. Se sijoittuu aivan päärautatieaseman viereen, ja ydinkes-kustan aukiot, kirkot, ravintolat ja ostos-kadut ovat noin kilometrin säteellä. Plussaa tulee eritoten monipuolisesta aamupalasta, joka kuului hintaan. Henkilökunta on ystävällistä ja avuliasta. Tilat ovat ehkä hieman persoonattomat, mutta kokonaisuutena kaikki toimii hyvin.
