We just returned from our stay at the Grand Majestic gia Baglioni hotel in Bologna, Italy. On July 1, 2010 the hotel left the Baglioni chain and became part of the duetorri group.
We were greeted at the front desk by the friendliest female employee who arranged to have our luggage brought in and our car parked by the valet.
We had considered self parking in one of the lots outside the historic centre, but after having a trying time (the gps did not help here) getting on the right street, going in the right direction we decided the 30 euro per night for parking was worth it.
The front desk employee walked us to our room and showed us around. We had been upgraded from our superior double room to the grand deluxe with a large terrace, king size bed, tv, large secure safety box, mini bar (that you can put your own things in too), desk with free internet hook up, chair, and beautiful decor.
There was a large marble bathroom with all the luxury you could ask for: a separate tub, a stand up shower stall, scales, safety mat for tub, hairdryer, toilet, bidet, double sinks and so on.
Our room had a long hallway and just inside the door was a closet and also a unit to put your suitcase. We had our own doorbell.
The room was nicely air conditioned and could be controlled to your liking.
Our rate included a breakfast buffet with scrambled and boiled eggs, bacon, hot vegetables, meats, cheeses, fruits, breads, cereals, juices, coffee and pretty well most things you would like.
This hotel was a very short walk to the main piazza of Bologna and had several stores close by.
Since we were there in mid August we found many of the restaurants and shops closed. The hotel does have a restaurant of their own, but we did not dine there this trip. Dinner is usually served from 7:30 pm onwards, as in most of the restaurants in the area.
We would definitely stay the Grand Majestic gia Baglioni on our next visit to Bologna. It was worth it.
