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.

I liked the location and the breakfast was good. We were put in a contemporary style apartment. The key was huge and heavy. Bed was good compared to rest of trip. Front desk staff were welcoming and very helpful. The Hotel was nice but there disgusting urine smell from the toilet that my wife and I smelled upon arrival. We... More

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

The Orologio is beautifully positioned on the Piazza Maggiore. It is within walking distance of the many historic sites of beautiful Bologna. The entrance and lobby are both small and unobtrusive but the breakfast room and residents' lounge are extremely elegant. I stayed here once before and got a more spacious and pleasanter room last time. The rooms are more... More

This is the most wonderful place to stay! Cannot think of anything I would change about our two week stay here. The best part of course, is the staff at the Orologio --they are delightful--charming, funny, and very, very attentive to any needs of their guests. I miss them all! The breakfast buffet is the best ever. An amazing array... More

My first choice of hotel was unavailable and I am so glad! I will never stay anywhere else in Bologna. What a perfect place. Besides good beds, wonderful bedding, an awesome breakfast, and a comfortable room, the location is right on the Piazza Maggiore so you are in the center of town. You can walk anywhere, or just pop down... More

Besides having perfect location just outside Piazza Maggiore this hotel has excellent service, good beds and a very good breakfast. They also could recommend several typically Italian restaurants with excellent food which we would never have found otherwise.
