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......

My wife and I lived in Italy and Sicily for five and a half years but that was a long time ago and we always wanted to return for a visit.

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...

We stayed in 2 different rooms - I would recommend getting one that overlooks the square. The breakfast was one of the most amazing speads I've ever seen. Unfortunately we had to leave early for the second night and didn't get to eat it. Definitely try the croissant with pistachio cream! It was nice to have a shared sitting and... More

I stayed at the Hotel Orologico from May 12-15 after I returned from a cruise to Rome. The hotel could not be more central to all the sights in Bologna and is very reasonably priced. I appreciated the fact that the room was very clean and a nice size. Best of all was the view from my window to Piazza... More

Ideally situated just off the main square, Piazza Maggiore, and close to great choice of restaurants in nearby vegetable market streets. Bedrooms are well appointed and breakfasts are excellent. A pleasant experience.
