The 4-star Starhotel Excelsior has an enviable position in front of the main railway station and is very well-linked with the fair grounds and the international airport. The city centre is just at a stone`s throw away. Bologna is a city famous for its art and cuisine; a city where tourists can stroll through under its arcades for miles, shop endlessly and visit a multitude of interesting historic sites and museums. The Excelsior is the result of a refurbishment of two previous hotels in 2002, and now offers 193 state of the art rooms with air conditioning, telephone, minibar, satellite and pay TV, modem connection, internet access via TV, bathrobe and hairdryer. Guests can also enjoy the gym, a relaxing drink in the cosy lobby or sample the local cuisine in the "Avorio" restaurant.
