Grand Hotel Majestic "Gia Baglioni"
Ranked #1 of 102 Hotels in Bologna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 August 2010

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.

The hotel was clean, the staff couldn't have been nicer, and the room was quite. Hotel Baglioni is in the heart of Bologna. There is so much to do and see.

Excellent location - heart of the city, next to all the major shops and restaurants, railway station was just down the road and airport's only about 20 minutes drive away. Front desk staff utterly charming and incredibly helpful, Antonella (speaks excellent English) booked up a return train trip for us (we were travelling on to Ancona) and advised us about the railway station, thus ensuring we caught the correct train. Her restaurant recommendations were spot on, she booked us tables - even finding us a late lunch table on our return the following Saturday - we were not even staying at the hotel that night, but were nevertheless able to drop our suitcases with the hotel for a few hours whilst we ate a delicious lunch elsewhere. We had two rooms on the 4th floor each with a little balcony, although it was simply too hot outside to use it. Our room was sumptious and huge, with a king sized bed, a sitting area with sofa and armchair as well as desk and chair, a massive bathroom and even a little dressing room with space for our 3 suitcases (all open). The kids room, was smaller, but nevertheless beautifully appointed. The 'American' breakfast was massive - from cereals, breads, eggs and bacon, cheeses and meats to cakes and pastries, fresh fruit and even an open bottle of champagne! All staff were friendly and service was surprisingly swift. We had a laptop with us and were given codes to log onto the free wi-fi. No noise at all during the night, and happily the air con worked brilliantly. I would absolutely stay in this hotel again. Bologna is beautiful, the food...oh the food, it's the best in Italy, wonderful!
