On The Road ~ Bologna, Italy #2
The Grand Hotel Majestic “già Baglioni”
This is where we stayed.
Unique Luxury five star hotel in Bologna, the oldest and most prestigious hotel in Bologna.
The 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 antiques with modern amenities, a perfect blend of classic italian style, elegance and hospitality.
The hotel is famous for its I Carracci restaurant with it’s frescoes, which is 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. The 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.
