There really isn't many negatives to this hotel. I stayed for two nights in a double room as a solo traveller in July and was very pleased. Check-in was smooth and a valet carried my bags to my room without expecting a tip! The room was nice, a touch outdated but that was the feel of the hotel. Free wifi,... More

Art Hotel Orologio is a gem in the city center. Close to the market district and the city square, it is perfectly located for an enjoyable stay within walking distance of many sites and attractions. The staff was warm, friendly and accommodating and the continental breakfast was a welcome array of delicious fruits, breads, cheeses, etc. that was a perfect... More

A beautiful little hotel in a perfect location! Situated in the piazza with central access by foot to great food and the sites. Staff was helpful and pleasant and breakfast selections and presentation was among the best I have experienced in travel. Rooms very clean and quaint, perfectly comfortable bed and temperature.

Wonderful small hotel in the heart of Bologna. The staff could not have been more helpful nor courteous. We were upgraded to a suite at no extra charge. We will definitely stay there when we return to Bologna.

This is a terrific small hotel in the middle of old Bologna. We were there for three nights and loved it. The desk people are really nice. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the beds are unbelievable...super comfortable, very supportive, great sheets. The breakfast is a little short of great. Good food in a nice environment but could be better.... More

Great location, just steps from the main square, Piazza Maggiore. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Rooms were nice and large. Although the reception area was small, there was a very nice lounge on the first floor. You do have to walk up one flight of stairs before reaching the elevator. Breakfast was typical continental but it is the... More
