Lovely hotel, excellent location, very friendly staff, amazing breakfast! I there in April 2014 and would strongly recommend anyone to go there. Myself, I'd love to go back! The location could not have been better!

The room was a large room with windows opening onto the view which the Hotel is in a little side street very close by the main Piazza.The room was both... More

just an adorable hotel in perfect location for Bologna -- we borrowed the pushbikes and enjoyed a spectacular day sigghtseeing. I loved the old fashioned decor and so close to the shopping precinct and some delicious restaurants just off the piazza. It was wonderful to find a breakfast with more than white rolls, sliced ham, cheese and a yoghurt-- here... More

My husband and I stayed here two nights and were very happy with the hotel. We were upgraded to a suite, which was a nice surprise. Clean, friendly, great breakfast. Bed and linens were very comfortable. The collection of antique clocks was a nice touch. It is steps from "the piazza" with Gianbologna's Neptune and fountain and walkable to all... More

There isn't much to say negatively about Art Hotel Orologio. It is centrally located, the staff are competent and helpful, the breakfast is extensive although some items after a day or two seem a bit stale around the edges, and the rooms are comfortable. Okay, this place has no idea of what a pillow is supposed to look like, but... More

I stayed at the art hotel Orologio for the fifth time in late October. It is a perfectly located and charming three star hotel. Lovely rooms but showers only in the bathrooms, excellent beds, excellent wi fi. Lovely staff. Fine breakfast. Beautiful antiques in the halls and public rooms. The hotel is just off the Piazza Maggiore and is right... More

We had booked two nights at the Art Hotel Orologio. Let me state the positives first - friendly and efficient staff, excellent location. We arrived having booked a 'deluxe' room which was supposed to have a view of some sort according to Booking.Com. We were shown to a room with a tiny window that looked out onto what could only...

I stayed in the Orologio for one night and had a wonderful (but short) stay. The location is really the best in Bologna- right in the main square but in a tranquil corner with a little sculpture space in front. The hotel is small and family run- the front door feels like entering a home and not a hotel. All... More

Get off the Aerobus, cross the street, enter the Piazza Maggiore turn the corner (still pedestrian) and you have arrived. Couldn't have imagines how perfect the location was. A stately home turned into hotel. Staff great, breakfast could have used something hot (eggs sausage bacon for instance) but all very tastey and fresh fruit galore. . The view from our... More
