About Us

The Grand Hotel Majestic "già Baglioni", the oldest and most prestigious hotel in Bologna, sits in the heart of the city on Via 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.

The109 rooms have a mix of antiques 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.

The hotel is famous for its I Carracci restaurant with its frescoes, which is rightly regarded as among the most sophisticated and elegant in Bologna. This is a place where you may enjoy the traditional recipes of the Emilia region whilst seated under authentic Italian masterpieces. Our new “Enoteca Morandi” with a well-stocked cellar provides a wide range of fine Italian and foreign wines to complement a traditional and “rustico” regional menu.

The hotel has a total of 7 meeting rooms - 4 of which have been created recently. These rooms, all enjoying natural light, can each accommodate up to 120 people. The three original rooms are quite unique each having16th century coffered ceilings.

This is the perfect place to indulge your senses and to rediscover harmony between body and soul after a day of intensive sight-seeing or just to fight the daily stress. It features a Turkish bath, a sauna, an emotional shower with chromo therapy and an intimate and exclusive relaxing area. A fitness area with state-of-the-art’s Technogym equipment complete our client’s relaxation break in the best possible way.

Best of the Best

Bologna’s most ancient hotel, Grand Hotel Majestic “Gia’ Baglioni” is in an 18th-century palazzo originally built for Pope Benedict XIV. It heralds a divine stay, with Renaissance frescoes and a 23-arch portico befitting this City of Porticoes. Each of the 109 rooms is adorned with lavish Italian décor through the centuries, Murano chandeliers, and antiques. Dine on the city’s finest Bolognese cuisine at I Carracci Restaurant, enjoy a wine tasting experience at Enoteca Morandi or a cocktail at Cafè Marinetti.

The Grand Hotel Majestic was everything one might expect from a 5 star European hotel. The staff couldn't have treated us better and went above and beyond with every request that we made or question that we had. It is somewhat expensive, but they certainly delivered value for the price. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.
