Spent a night only, but we got a central suite which was very classic, elegant and spacious. The hotel is definitely a pleasant memory of a time long gone, a bit overated, very traditional: the entrance hall reminded me of an old notary office, but the luxury it offers is probably the best you can find in town.

I when to Bologna as I like art so therefore, Italy is always on top of my list. But I was not sure if I wanted to go to Bologna as I thought that Bologna was a large boring industrial city. How wrong was I! The old town is a lovely, romantic, medieval city, with great architecture, nice museums (don’t... More

I was in Bologna for one night by myself. I walked into the hotel made my booking. Asked for help in decided where I would go in town. Within 15 minutes I had an itinerary for the day. Dinner reservations and a plan for the rest of the evening. It was wonderful.

We spent New Years at this hotel and thought it was a good option. The hotel is very grand (Louis XIV decor) and formal -- which isn't typically our taste but they pull it off well. Pros --Location just steps from main piazza --Outstanding service throughout (particular compliments to Paolo the bellman and Vittoria at reception) --Elegant furnishings - feels... More

My husband, teenage daughter and I stayed at the Grand Hotel Majestic for four nights right before Christmas. We were in a junior suite on the fourth (5th) floor which had a separate sleeping alcove for our daughter. The room was large and had a lovely terrace overlooking Via Independeza and St. Peter's Church. Very generous walk in closet, bar/buffet... More

Visited this hotel in September. Fairly non-descript on the outside but gorgeous inside with impeccable service with smiles. The front desk could not be more helpful in locating a tour of the parmesan, prosciutto and balsamic factories and calling taxis for us. Perfectly situated just a few minutes from Piazza Maggiore. We were upgraded from a Deluxe Room and our... More

We visited Bologna for the first time this Christmas and selected the Grand Hotel Majestic. Grand it is with magnificent high ceilings, wood panelled walls, chandeliers and wonderful art. The staff are smiley, helpful and welcoming. A few changes would have made our stay '5*'. The wifi is intermittent and we had to move around the room to get it... More

Beautiful hotel, perfectly located steps from Piazza Maggiore with impeccable service. We were upgraded from a Deluxe Room and our room was spacious, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The service is very good; everyone we met was incredibly helpful. The breakfast is large and varied.

We have been staying regularly at the Majestic (formerly Baglioni) since it reopened in the mid 1980s, and this superbly located hotel in one of Europe's most vibrant and attractive relatively undiscovered cities has never been better run or more luxurious than it is today. Super- friendly & efficient staff; impressive but welcoming reception lobby & many public spaces dotted... More
