One of the Leading Hotels in the World - merited !

Posted Jul 5, 2014
Driving to it is a nightmare. Italians are mad drivers anyway, and the street is blocked off. To make it worse, the front entrance is just an obscure doorway in a collonated arcade of shops. But once you get there, it doesn't disappoint - except for the pretentious Restaurant Menu.

Great luxury hotel in best location

Posted May 21, 2014
Pros: Location, cleanliness and welcoming staff
Cons: Pay more attention to client's special requests ( room with a view)
Location: Great, in the very centre of historic Bologna
Hotel staff is very welcoming and efficient. The property is immaculately clean everywhere and the decor is sumptuous....however, in spite of having requested a room with a nice view, we were given a very small (although very beautiful) room that was very dark and with no view at all. Location could not be better...breakfast was outstanding and valet parking ( pricey set 39 euros per night) but very convenient.

Good location in the city

Posted May 6, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Upgraded, painted & new fixtures in bathroom.
Hotel becoming average as not updated in years. Rooms small, bathrooms tinny. It is still OK, but may go elsewhere my next stay.

Majestic Majestic

Posted Apr 21, 2014
We had second thoughts about staying at a top hotel as we intended to use it as a glorified B&B but how we were wrong! The hotel is simply brilliant with special mention to the staff who could not be more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble - all done with a smile. We did not eat in the restaurant but used the hotel's recommendations for local restaurants which were fantastic. Close you eyes - bite the bullet - stay at the Majestic

Amazing concierge staff for Americans!

Posted Apr 8, 2014
The consierge staff was more than amazing. Bologna isn't that accommodating to English speaking tourists. But the staff at the hotel went above and beyond to be helpful and arrange taxis, pickups, and dinner reservations. More than happy! Hotel is a bit dated, bathrooms could use upgraded showers, but the helpfulness of the hotel staff more than made up for it.

Fantastic location, beautiful hotel, great service

Posted Apr 8, 2014
Great location with shops and restaurants at your doorstep, yet still surprisingly quiet. At the time I stayed the streets were shut for vehicles Saturday and Sunday so the whole street became a pedestrian area with a great buzz. Rooms are beautiful, lovely breakfast and super friendly and helpful staff.

This one is a winner!

Posted Feb 15, 2014
Cons: In the bathroom, it would help to have a small courtesy can of shaving foam, because this item gets regularly seized from travellers at airports
Location: The center of Bologna is quite compact and everything is reachable on foot. And if the weather is rainy, those wonderful arcades will protect you.
Extremely convenient central location with a low-key entrance. Thanks to restricted traffic circulation, it is not noisy at night. The staff is absolutely impeccable. They remember their clients' names and courtesy prevails everywhere. Tasteful decor throughout and attention to even the smallest detail: bright red cyclamens in all the window boxes, automatic lighting when you enter the bathroom so you don't fumble for the switch. Lovely bed linens and enough towels to serve an army! Bedside lighting bright for reading after hours and helpful brochures to guide you through daytime excursions. We were thoroughly spoiled by this place!

centrally located luxury hotel

Posted Jan 27, 2014
Pros: All of the above, as well as the very civilized 1 pm check-out time.
Cons: The restaurant menu could be expanded.
Location: Perfectly situated for shopping along via dell'Independenza as well as for exploring piazza Maggiore, the Jewish ghetto, two towers, santo Stefano...
The period building has been lovingly preserved and renovated so it offers all modern comforts whilst retaining its charm and features. There are authentic paintings and antiques everywhere in the spacious lobby and in the corridors, in the bar and in the breakfast room. The rooms are appointed with contemporary furniture, and the beds made with linen sheets. Breakfast (included in the room rate) is served buffet style, with a copious selection of cereals, pastries, cold cuts and cheeses, salads, savoury flan, fruit, yogurt, and freshly squeezed fruit juices. All staff I encountered were polite and helpful, and service was generally pleasant and efficient.

Pros: Basically everything but especially the breakfast.
Cons: It's pretty fully priced but I think they've earned it.
Location: Right in the middle of town so whatever you want really...
Probably the best smaller hotel I've ever stayed at. Staff are extremely helpful, the room was great and had a refurbed bathroom. Also had a gym, while basic, this is rare for Italy in my experience.

Weekend in Bologna

Posted Jan 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
Lovely hotel in the heart of Bologna. We had a weekend as we traveled to Genoa for business and wanted to see Bologna. The hotel was perfect for touring the old part of the city. The restaurant was very good but did have a limited menu. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. If Bologna shows up in our plans again it would be my.
