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.

A fantastic hotel, an extremely welcoming staff, an excellent location, however, no COVID-19 restrictions applied at all! No green pass was checked, no limitations in dining rooms and public spaces. It was the only hotel in our present tour in Italy that made us feel uncomfortable in this regard.

Dear Guest, Thank you for the preference accorded to Grand Hotel Majestic "già Baglioni" during your last stay in Bologna and for taking the time to share your experience on Tripadvisor community. We truly appreciate your comments regarding your stay with us. We are glad you enjoyed our privilege location right in the hearth of historic city centre. A special thanks for your note on our staff you, I will share it with them and I'm sure they will be encouraged to continue performing at their best by your words. Now, please allow me to spend few words about your note on Covid restrictions. First, I kindly would like to inform you that accordingly to protocols of Italian Ministry of Health, Green Pass is not mandatory or requested to stay in a hotel. For this reason we don’t ask to check the Green Pass at arrival to our estimated Guests, however, as you probably noticed we have a self-declaration form to fill upon arrival, which is absolutely compliant to rules and regulations approved by Italian government. We also apply all the necessary measures to prevent Covid19 and for the benefit of all the community, I would like to share our protocols here: https://grandhotelmajestic.duetorrihotels.com/en/luxury-hotel-italy-5-stars-bologna/safety-and-security I also would like to say, that restrictions and protocols related to Covid19 don’t need to be extremely evident to be applied, as our Hotel is a historical and classic hotel, we apply the necessary measures in the most discrete and less visible way, taking in good consideration also the style of our property. For example; tables at our Restaurant are set at the proper distance to guarantee the social distance but with no visible barrier, many alcoholic gel distributors are placed in all the property, but with an appropriate way and style. All our Staff wear masks, we have see-through barrier at Front Desk, we sanitize all the guestrooms and public spaces with an innovative machinery using hydrogen peroxide and finally we are proudly certified by GBAC Star and Sharecare VERIFIED with Forbes Travel Guide. Therefore, I’m sorry you felt uncomfortable, but I can assure you our hotel is safe and compliant to all protocols. As a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, the hotel continuously strives to meet our valued Guests’ expectations, if you expressed your feelings during your stay, we could have explained and made you feel safer. I also take the occasion, to ask you which differences you found in other hotels that brought you to think we don't apply Covid restrictions, for this reason I invite you kindly to write me personally to my email: tiberio.biondi@duetorrihotels.com. The safety of our Guests and Staff is our priority and I would truly appreciate your comments. Thank you for your preference and we hope to welcoming you once again, hopefully in a moment when all the Covid protocols won’t be necessary anymore. Sincerely, Tiberio Biondi General Manager Grand Hotel Majestic "già Baglioni"

After almost ten years, I was in the hotel again. I am delighted with how it has been renovated, how the service has been raised to a higher level, the rooms are superbly equipped and tidy, the restaurants are fantastic, the staff is more than friendly. You have the impression that you are in luxury hotels, but what did it look like 30, 40 years ago when the guest was a holy person, when you had several maids in one room, several concierges who know everything ... not as it looks today in many hotels, but not in Gia Baglioni

This grand lady of a hotel is sited right where you want to be in Bologna. The dear bellmany helped us navigate into the maze of the one way streets to reach the hotel and then took and safely parked out car. Quite a blessing. The hotel is a throw back to the grand days of luxury travel and top service. Wonderful bed, bath, service. Worth the price.
