We really liked this hotel and especially its location. It is clean and the quality of the beds, linen and towels is high. The breakfast is fine, with real fruit juices, which is inexplicably something Italian hotels do not provide (preferring to serve you something based on a powdered mix). There was a minor failure of the air conditioning in... More

Hotel Orologio is perfectly located for a visit to the old town of Bologna. Just off the main square, Piazza Maggiore, the hotel is walking distance to nearly all the important sites of Bologna. Staff are knowledgeable and attentive. Our stay was marred by defective wi-fi on our floor and inadequate air conditioning in our room but I am sure... More

My husband and i were looking for a romantic place to stay in Italy for a short break.We'd researched this hotel on Tripadvisor before visiting Bologna, and were not disappointed...it was just as we'd hoped. We were met at reception by cheerful, friendly staff and were promptly given our room key despite being 2 hours early. The hotel is well... More

We have stayed in Orologio for just one night, at the end of July 2014. Location could not be best. Hotel facilities are excellent. We got a room facing Piazza Maggiore! Staff was friendly and very efficient - namely making their best to held us solve a luggage problem.

Bologna, my favourite city on Earth? The Orologia - it is the best location in Bologna! Bologna has a palace hotel, which is fantastic but very expensive. However, that palace hotel - is on a fairly mediocre location! ("Next to the H&M" on the large shopping street.) The Orologia is perfect, it's right on the square, right at the fountain... More

My wife and I booked into the Orologio at short notice, having chosen it mainly for its location a stone's throw from Bologna's main square. The hotel does not look much from the outside and the communal areas are no more than adequate but our bedroom was comfortable and the marble bathroom very attractive. The staff are extremely helpful and... More

Enjoyed my stay at this small and friendly hotel. Staff was friendly and ensured that my stay was enjoyable. Room was small but very comfortable. Loved the breakfast spread! Great location in the heart of Bologna.

My husband and I stayed at the Orologio at the end of February. Our room was charming, had an absolutely beautiful bathroom (with a window!). The bedroom window opened onto the side street, not the little public square, so it was quiet at night even though I always leave the window open a bit. The staff was friendly, breakfast great......

With only one night in which to maximise our time in Bologna we needed somewhere central to stay. We lucked out with a relatively low rate as we were booking quite late and this hotel was perfect location; only a few metres away from Piazza Maggiore and the small streets full of fresh food shops, and a couple of minutes...
