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.

Just steps from Piazza Maggiore it is impossible to find a more centrally located hotel in Bologna. A small boutique hotel the rooms have comfortable beds and good bathrooms – a few more coat hangers and a chest of drawers wouldn’t go amiss but we managed fine without! The highlight was breakfast, plenty of fresh fruit, proper fruit juices –... More

We had an awesome stay at the Hotel Orologio. We arrived to find that we'd been upgraded to a suite on the 5th floor since it was our honeymoon. The room was great and the wifi was really strong. The windows looked down onto the square... which I should note is very loud. So we couldn't sleep with the windows... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. Pros: Great location, close to Piazza Maggiore and Neptune Fountain. Good breakfasts, friendly service in the breakfast room. Cons: Overall, the public areas are dirty, especially the stairs. The whole place is shabby and needs a re-do. Bed and bath linens are thin and worn. I would have preferred to stay outside the old...

We stayed in a suite for four nights & were very happy with the location, level of comfort, amenities and service. From our check-in to check-out all staff were extremely helpful, friendly and professional. The suite was very spacious and quiet, shabby-chic in a good way, the minibar was reasonably priced, the shutters when closed blocked out daylight and Wifi... More

The hotel is small, charming, clean, but what you're really getting is prime location, right off the Piazza Maggiore, the main square and center of the city. My only complaint was the woman behind the front desk, whose name escapes me. She was unsmiling, unfriendly, and unhelpful. When I asked directions, she waved vaguely and said, "Over there, under the... More

If you have very little time for sight seeing, this is a perfect choice since it is right on the main piazza. All the monuments, markets, shopping and restaurant are around this hotel. The rooms are small but well furnished. The lighting was a bit harsh though. The folks at the reception were helpful . Wifi is free and efficient.... More

We stayed here on a July weekend in 2014. It is in the centre of the "Old City" and you can walk everywhere you need to. We took the train and it was a 10 Euro charge to the hotel. Rooms are a reasonable size and we had a small balcony. Service was excellent and the breakfast (included) was lovely.... More
