  • Hello, I hope this message finds you well. We are planning to travel to Bologna in mid-June for three days. Considering the current situation with the global pandemic we will most likely have to present a negative PCR test returning to Greece. Do you know if there is any test site nearby the hotel?

    Dear guest, at the moment all guests are using the PCR test provided by the airport. There is a fast train which links the hotel and the airport within 10 minutes. Warn regards, Starhotels Excelsior
