Grand Hotel Majestic "già Baglioni"

Via dell'Indipendenza, 8, Bologna, 40121 , Italy

Love at First Sight

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.

Romance

The Grand Hotel Majestic is a "museum" that collects several italian masterpieces. The most romantic is on the main floor where it is possible to admire a frescoed room, one of Bologna’s most valuable artistic and historical examples of civil construction.

The so-called Camerino di Europa (the Little Room of Europa) was probably the first major commission entrusted to the brothers Agostino and Annibale Carracci. High is the pictorial value of this "cycle," which involves only the upper part of the walls. Developed as a frieze, it is linked to stylistic models that Raphael and his circle of collaborators had recovered years before and revived in Rome.

In this room the story of Europa is condensed into four scenes (inspired by the second book of Ovid’s Metamorphoses), that illustrate a marvelous gift for cinematographic synthesis: the young daughter of Phoenix and Perimede who, loved by Zeus, was abducted by the god transformed into a bull, and brought to the island of Crete. From their union Minos, the mythical king of the island, was born. The narrative is divided into the following four stages realized as “paintings with faux frames” (Malvasia): Jupiter turned into a bull, forces Europa to approach him; Jupiter makes Europa lead him; Europa rises on the back of the bull; the rape of Europa. Likewise, faux reliefs border the paintings and grotesque decorations complete the frieze.

Your Stay

Courtesy, hospitality and friendliness, which make Bologna the representative of “dolce vita”, become tangible in the places and initiatives of Majestic.

Overlooking the town's main street, Via Indipendenza, the hotel represents the ideal starting point for a visit to the centre of Bologna with its historical traces of the past, contributions to modernity and innovation, opportunities for pleasant strolls along the shops and alleyways, everyday life full of cheerfulness.

The suites with flowered balconies and the rooms represent the best example of hospitality excellence, the uniqueness and combination of tradition and functionality. Elegant and welcoming, furnished with precious furniture, they overlook the nearby Piazza del Nettuno, dominated by the famous Renaissance Fountain of the sea God. It was sculpted in the middle of the 1500s by the French sculptor Jean Boulogne, so now it is called Giambologna, giving its name to one of the hotel’s suite too. The Art Déco Terrace Suite stands out as the only room with a private terrace from which one can enjoy the most beautiful views of the city. Professionalism and friendliness of the hotel staff are also of great value; they represent the typical hospitality of Bologna.

The Majestic also promotes made in Italy concept in the automotive sector and wellness. The first one supposes special events, inside and outside the runway, where one can experience the adrenaline rush of driving a Ferrari or Lamborghini, or discover the land of motors, visiting Ferrari, Ducati, Maserati and Lamborghini.

Here relaxation is combined with a fitness corner.Every aspect of excellence harmoniously binds to the other for an experience of taste, pleasure and discovery through the fil rouge of hospitality and the most careful and complete welcome.
