Editorial review:

This palace, dating back to the 17th century, is perfect for guests to shop, sightsee, and eat. The staff is helpful, the rooms are big, and the hallways are very wide. There are frescoes from the 16th century. Some feel that the look is outdated and the rooms are average. Some feel that it's the best place in Bologna to stay.

                      The room is wonderful! There is no bad point: Localization, Clean, Kind employees, staff, breakfast, parking service, everything is great!

                      The dinner menu is not plenty but the taste is good.

                      Majestic by name and by nature beautiful, old hotel beautifully kept. Staff wonderful making every effort to make our stay memorable and it was. Great continental breakfast. I managed to set the toaster on fire and even that wasn't a problem. The receptionists booked us on a couple of guided tours which were magic especially the cheese and vinegar one with alejandro(great lad loves his job makes all the difference) And the receptionists recommended and booked the best restaurant ever. To sum up, this old palace hasn't forgotten it's regal past. Can't wait to return!!!!!!!

                      The staff of the hotel are helpful and efficient. The location is excellent as it is very close to the square and the best shops can be found along the same road. We had an excellent tour of the parmaggiano regiano cheese factory, balsamic vinegar and the proschuitto ham factories. The guide, Allesandro, from Italian Days Food Experience, was most entertaining and informative. Glad we came.

                      A feelgood hotel: a grand old lady in a great location, yet very quiet bedroom; very eager and helpful personnel

                      Extremely friendly, helpful staf;, decor, ambience and an exceptionally comfortable bed. A very luxurious and restful short break and all facilities immediately available. Thank you.

                      The 'Shower Door' did not fit properly which resulted in a flooded bathroom each time the shower was used. Broken electronic 'do not disturb sign' for room was not fixed as promised.

                      Beautifully renovated .Gorgeous comfortable suite with terrace Staff was courteous kind knowledgeable and very very helpful

                      My only criticism is that for a hotel on this level the breakfast was mediocre .I compare it to hotels of equal reputation and luxury level such as the 4 Seasons and the Ritz. You should check them out.

                      Although no longer a member of the Baglioni group the Majestic is just as good as on our previous visit when it was rated the best hotel in Italy. The situation is perfect for a city trip, adjoining the newly opened Fava collection with Carracci murals and very close to the Medieval and Musical Instruments museums. We were treated to a visit with demonstrations of the keyboard instruments in the latter. The Carracci restaurant is under new management but is as charming as before.

                      A very minor quibble is that we found the pop background music in the restaurant and breakfast rooms not to our tast. This is a problem everywhere for mature music lovers. In I Carracci the volume was lowered at our request with no objection from the other diners.

                      Great location in center of town, staff very friendly

                      A bit too quiet when we we were there. Suites vary quite a bit so make sure you know which one you are getting - we had two suites at same rate but one room was far better than the other.

                      Restaurant very good, room newly renovated and good. A little pricey but we enjoyed the location near so much that this great city has to offer.

                      Location - very central

                      Service very average - asked for coffee at the bar, came totally cold, was replaced but it did not occur to the staff to reduce the price/bring something complimentary with it. Food is totally overpriced for what it is, I ordered room service menu - had some totally bland grilled chicken with equally bland grilled vegetables and it cost me 40 eur. Air con did not work in the room, I had to call reception every time I wanted it on or off. Interior of hotel is quite dated. Overall, the hotel is ok, its clearly not a dump. But it is not a 5 star l hotel, for sure.
