My family and I recently travelled to Cosenza for a wedding. We stayed at the excelsior for a week. Although the hotel is a little dated and could do with a little upgrade, we found the front desk and the breakfast personal very polite and helpful. The location is right by a pedestrian walkway and is close to everything. There...

Old charm hotel, very friendly and helpful staff, nice rooms, typical italian breakfast (in other words: don't expect too much), very good position between old and new town. Disadvantage: parking can be a serious problem.

The Excelsior dates back to the early 1900s but has been recently renovated. The rooms I've seen were fairly large and well appointed. Its location is within a stone's throw from the Via Mazzini pedestrian zone and near a couple of good restaurants. Breakfast is OK but nothing to write home about, staff are friendly and helpful. I'm not sure...

We had some problems not relating to the hotel and the staff went out of their way to help us. One morning I mentioned to the desk manager we had trouble with a connection for our GPS and if there was electronics store nearby and looked at the part, left the hotel and returned with the new part to allow...

I'm a Canadian who has stayed at this hotel twice. It was absolutely gorgeous in the reception room and the actual hotel room did not disappoint. The rooms were spacious with high ceilings, wood floors and beautiful wallpaper. It felt like I was staying in a mansion bedroom. The location was perfect as well and the staff helped. If you...

We lived in Italy from Feb 2000 to Sept 2001, and most of the economy hotels we would stay in when traveling were nothing to "write home about". We were captured by the friendliness of the staff at Hotel Excelsior, and the historical background. My wife, our three little children, and I arrived after a long day of driving and...

My title could apply to Cosenza as well as Hotel Excelsior. The hotel is in a building that is pretty neat, but needs a lot of work. Our room was reasonably large, and the bathroom was by far the largest one we had in Italy. Though the room was clean, I always had a vague discomfort, perhaps because the bedding...
