Grand Hotel Majestic già Baglioni

Recent guest reviews

We booked on the day of our arrival and upon check in were very generously upgraded to the wonderful presidential suite. This upgrade was offered, not asked for. Throughout our stay staff were incredibly helpful, kind, thoughtful, generous and respectful. Of course our toddler garnered huge smiles and endless generosity in the chocolate department and we were treated to excellent restaurant suggestions and staff doing everything they could to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Of course it isn’t cheap but you get value for money, you’re staying in one of the most wonderfully civilised hotels in Europe. It’s very lavishly decorated whilst not being vulgar, it is Italian hospitality and flair at its very best. If you’re planning on staying in Bologna and you’re reading this review; there is only one place you can even consider staying, don’t think with your brain (or your wallet!) but your heart, book yourself a life long memory.

The room was decorated in antique type furnishings. The shower did not have a grab bar. Very good breakfast in a pleasant downstairs area. Helpful concierge. It's only two blocks from the two main piazzas, so it's well located.

The Grand Hotel Majestic, formerly known as Grand Hotel Baglioni, has always been considered as the best hotel in town. I have to say the reputation is well deserved! Top location at 100 meters from Piazza Maggiore. As soon as you enter the lobby you feel that unique atmosphere that only the historical hotels have. Check in fast and efficient, according to the standards of the LHW. The room was elegantly decorated in a baroque style (perhaps the golden frame around the tv is a bit too much) and had a pretty balcony overlooking the Town cathedral roofs. Breakfast was absolutely excellent with plenty of choice and excellent products. Of course it is more expensive then any other hotel in town but it is definitely the best!

Stayed here recently. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Perfectly located in centre of town. Surrounded by shops and easy stroll to most tourist attractions. The rooms are a little old but comfortable.

I was her for a couple of days for a business trip. Everything was great: courtesy, service, restaurant, breakfast. Personnel are really helpful and very nice. Recommend this place both for hotel & restaurant. Ah, positions is perfect!

Superb hotel superb service loved every minute would highly recommend it. Staff fantastic rooms old style but very comfortable. Don’t stay anywhere else. Wonderful location close to all shops and sights

If you would like to relive history and feel authentic Italian Hotellerie: this is the place to stay. It has all the charm and beauty and decor, but it also has the noice, Italien service (trying hard if they know you and have received a tip in the past) and dust, that can only be made up by pure authenticity. Choose your poison; it’s worth it.

What a superb hotel the Grand Hotel Majestic is. The staff were warm and friendly, helpful and efficient. My room was luxurious and beautifully furnished even though it was a standard room. It’s in a great location to see all the sights and close to the shops and restaurants. If I return to Bologna this will be the place I will stay. Not to be missed.

Exquisite hotel. Wonderful service. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. The room was magnificent and the decor superb. My breakfast was included and it was very good. Everthing I could want was provided for.

Everything about this place is wonderful, staff, location, rooms, location, service, restaurant. Literally one of the best hotels I've been in, I'm killing myself to think of a better one, but the Baglioni has it all. What makes this hotel what it is - the staff. The entire staff is amazing. From the moment we stepped out of the cab to the moment we hopped back in one to leave, we were treated exquisitely. Yulia made a recommendation and a reservation for dinner for us. She took her time and it was a perfect match. The next day we decided to have lunch in "I Carracci" before we went back to Florence. It was outstanding. The young waiter we had (I forget his name!) was incredible, sweet, charming, knowledgeable and funny ... maybe the best service we have ever had in a restaurant. We'll be back, we can't stay away. My girlfriend returned to the US, but I'm still in Florence for a few months. I'm killing myself to find another reason to go back to Bologna just to stay at the Baglioni .... I'm sure there must be an exhibit I could see ;-)
