Super location in the centre of Bologna. This is a nice historic hotel, the staff team were super helpful and friendly. Wonderful breakfast. 20 min walk to train station which is very easy. Could be maybe a bit noisy in summer as you are in the heart of the city but worth it for the position. Would recommend.

Great spot well located in historic centre. Gave us easy access to all the key sites. People of Bologna very friendly and this was reflected in the courteous and professional staff at the Orologio. Room was a good size spotlessly clean and with a very comfortable bed. Can't go wrong with this choice.

We loved this hotel. We were hesitant to book within the limited driving zone but everything went flawlessly. We drove in straight to the hotel and the butler pointed us around the corner to a shared garage. It was like the 8th wonder of the world to see how they fit cars in there (they do it for you, nothing... More

The staff was so wonderful I sometimes wished I could simply hang out with them and chat. Spotless, comfortable room, large bathroom (we had a deluxe). Wide selection of breakfast foods and lots of fresh fruit. Walking distance (for us, ages 60 & 66) to everything we wanted in Bologna. Took a taxi from the train station, but after that... More

Fantastic location literally steps away from the main town square area around Piazza Maggiore (and San Petronio Church). Drawbacks are that rooms are small and you need to walk up 2 flights of stairs to get to elevator. Don’t expect luxury but service is thoughtful and for EUR 200 range, this is good value in the middle of town.

Just steps from Piazza Maggiore it is impossible to find a more centrally located hotel in Bologna. A small boutique hotel the rooms have comfortable beds and good bathrooms – a few more coat hangers and a chest of drawers wouldn’t go amiss but we managed fine without! The highlight was breakfast, plenty of fresh fruit, proper fruit juices –... More

We had an awesome stay at the Hotel Orologio. We arrived to find that we'd been upgraded to a suite on the 5th floor since it was our honeymoon. The room was great and the wifi was really strong. The windows looked down onto the square... which I should note is very loud. So we couldn't sleep with the windows... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. Pros: Great location, close to Piazza Maggiore and Neptune Fountain. Good breakfasts, friendly service in the breakfast room. Cons: Overall, the public areas are dirty, especially the stairs. The whole place is shabby and needs a re-do. Bed and bath linens are thin and worn. I would have preferred to stay outside the old...

We stayed in a suite for four nights & were very happy with the location, level of comfort, amenities and service. From our check-in to check-out all staff were extremely helpful, friendly and professional. The suite was very spacious and quiet, shabby-chic in a good way, the minibar was reasonably priced, the shutters when closed blocked out daylight and Wifi... More
