Travellers' Choice
The Grand Hotel Majestic "già Baglioni", the oldest and most prestigious hotel in Bologna, sits in the heart of the city on Via dell’Indipendenza, within walking distance of Piazza Maggiore and the famous Due Torri. This superb five-star deluxe hotel is situated in a Palazzo designed by architect Alfonso Torregiani during the first half of the 18th century and built by order of Cardinal Prospero Lambertini, who later became Pope. The palazzo is in fact, built on top of an ancient Roman road, part of which can be seen within the hotel. The 109 rooms have a mix of antique furniture with modern amenities, a perfect blend of classic Italian style, elegance and hospitality. The 4th floor refurbishment has enriched the hotel with a new range of Junior Suites and Deluxe Room. The style in this case is classic eighteen century classical French.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We loved the Baglioni. It’s a fantastic location, beautifully appointed but the true treasure of the hotel... rooms are spectacular, with linen sheets, wonderfully appointed bathrooms, and incredibly well-decorated. A sublime retreat in the Red City. most charming staff. They were so helpful throughout our stay, The decor is just lovely. Antiques mix beautifully with all the modern conveniences. I loved the nightlight that went in the bathroom at night, Room service breakfasts were a great treat as well as dining the beautiful breakfast room. . The only issue we had was a bit of difficulty with the internet. We had to take a zoom Covid test that had to be monitored for 15 minutes

We loved our two night stay at this beautiful hotel in the center of Bologna. We were in a gorgeous room with a balcony which I recommend. It had every amenity one could need and beautiful linen sheets. The breakfast buffet and the dinner was very good. On Saturday the city is all Closed to cars and it’s such fun. It was a splurge and it was well worth it! Enjoy!

When we arrived at this hotel there was a little girl standing next to us who told her father that she really didn’t want to leave the hotel as she had had a really good time there. I remarked to my husband that I had never seen a child rave about a hotel like that. But when we checked out we felt just like the little girl. We didn’t want to leave. First and thought the hotel had the most charming staff. They were so helpful throughout our stay, The decor is just lovely. Antiques mix beautifully with all the modern conveniences. I loved the nightlight that went in in the bathroom at night, Room service breakfasts were a great treat as well as dining the the beautiful breakfast room. . And the food in the dining room was exquisite. We also had a great dinner in the bar area. The location was perfect. Really close to shops and restaurants. The only issue we had was a bit of difficulty with the internet. We had to take a zoom Covid test that had to be monitored for 15 minutes. However the staff arranged a special room near their business center and the signal was perfect. They also arranged a pharmacy Covid test and a wonderful car and driver to take us to Ravenna and then our cruise ship. He was just fabulous. All in all we loved loved loved this hotel. A hidden gem for sure!

I love the Baglioni. It’s a fantastic location, beautifully appointed , and immaculately maintained, but the true treasures of the hotel are the staff. The rooms are spectacular, linen sheets, wonderfully appointed bathrooms and incredibly well decorated. A sublime retreat in the Red City. The restaurant for breakfast is beautiful, but “I Carracci” will offer you one of the most exquisite dining experiences you can have. The staff are wonderful . I witnessed firsthand how they assisted a guest who was suffering from dementia, they were kind, gracious and gentle in their assistance. I have high praise for all of the staff, I interacted with, Antonella, Aurelia, Valentina, Giacamo, and Alesso . So incredibly professional and delightful. My third time staying at the Baglioni, it never disappoints, I would place it as one of my top three favorite hotels in the world.

We had a lovely stay at this world class, classic hotel. The hotel is truly majestic, extremely well maintained and clean and the staff was absolutely top-notch. The hotel is very well-located and the room- while small - was well appointed with a comfortable bed, excellent pillows and linens and a luxurious bathroom. We can’t wait to spend more time in Bologna and hope to stay at the Grand-Dame of Bologna again.

From the moment we arrived everything was perfect. Our room was beautiful, spacious, and clean. The staff at the hotel, particularly Alberto at the front desk, and Domenico and Giacomo at the Cafe bar, went out of their way to ensure that we had a wonderful experience at the hotel and in Bologna. The breakfast is fantastic as are the specialty cocktails. The consistent, polite, and helpful service by the entire team is the epitome of what a 5 star hotel should be.

This hotel is beautiful and 1st class all the way. I felt like I was staying in a palace. We had a suite with a balcony that overlooked the main road, and it was gorgeous and very comfortable. Rarely do we spend much time in our hotel room but this room had a beautiful living area with a sofa, chair, coffee table & desk, and it was a pleasure to drink my coffee there in the morning. It is in an absolute perfect location, within walking distance to everything. On weekends the street in front of the hotel becomes pedestrian only which was great to just walk out the door & start walking. The breakfast buffet was great & served in another beautiful room. The bar was beautiful as well. I could have stayed here for a week easily. If I ever come back to Bologna, it will be to stay at this hotel vs enjoying the city. I thought it was incredible & we have stayed all over the world. The front desk could not have been any nicer!!
