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.

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.
