Just back from a 4 day trip to Bologna.. Hotel is traditional Italian decor in keeping with the history of the city I'd say, it's very clean and comfortable, good breakfast, and excellent location, we had a side street room on 2nd floor no noise from street . Staff helpful

We stayed in this hotel on the first night of a trip to Italy and what a great start! It was beautiful. The staff were friendly and helpful without being over-the-top. The room was small-ish but absolutely beautiful, clean, and comfortable. Breakfast was very enjoyable with a very wide selection and perfect to set us up for the day. The... More

We are a family of 7 who stayed at the Orologio for one night before returning to the UK. We got completely lost trying to drive into the centre of Bologna and rang the hotel who very kindly stayed on the phone and guided us in. The hotel itself was very comfortable - great bathrooms in particular. Very good breakfast... More

I stayed here with my Son on the 13th and 14th August 2015. It`s location is second to none being literally around 50 yards from the Piazza Maggiore. Our room was a bit smaller than i`d expected but it was very clean and the bathroom was nice with a great power shower. The best things about this hotel were the... More

In the centre of the action, this sweet hotel has everything the city visitor needs and more. Little touches to make life just a bit more comfortable, the philosophy of doing things properly or not doing them at all shines through. Wouldn't bother staying anywhere else ...

It was not exactly as we expected, we were upgraded to a small suite which was nice,overlooking one of the lovely old buildings in Bologna. The staff were super and very courteous and knowledgable. We enjoyed Bologna but next time would not stay in august as so many things were closed. The only thing that let this lovely hotel down... More

The location is perfect - in the heart of historic Bologna and walkable to almost everything on the sightseeing list. There are a lot of restaurants nearby as well. This is an older hotel but the rooms have been kept up very well. The elevator is one flight of stairs up for not for anyone who has trouble with stairs.... More

It was a charming elegant hotel in a very central position close to the Piazza Maggiore. The breakfast was served in a quiet sophisticated room with well chosen selection of food. At sunset a selection of snacks are available in the little sitting room free for the customers. A nice little touch for the tourists who come in from their... More

There really isn't many negatives to this hotel. I stayed for two nights in a double room as a solo traveller in July and was very pleased. Check-in was smooth and a valet carried my bags to my room without expecting a tip! The room was nice, a touch outdated but that was the feel of the hotel. Free wifi,... More

Art Hotel Orologio is a gem in the city center. Close to the market district and the city square, it is perfectly located for an enjoyable stay within walking distance of many sites and attractions. The staff was warm, friendly and accommodating and the continental breakfast was a welcome array of delicious fruits, breads, cheeses, etc. that was a perfect... More
