This hotel is in a great location, just off the main Piazza. The rooms were a little small, but certainly no smaller than in other central city hotels. The room was spotlesly clean, and the reception was friendly and helpful. as a place to stay when visting Bologna, it certainly did the trick. Parking it at their sister hotle around... More

I like to pick a comfortable, welcoming hotel when we first arrive in Europe and this hotel met the mark. It is very well located, just off the main square, but quiet and comfortable. Our room was spotless and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was a beautiful array of fruit, yogurt, cereal, pastries, meats and cheeses. The staff was very... More

It was a very comfortable and welcoming stay. The room was spacious, well furnished, very clean and with a spacious marble bathroom. The continental breakfast was delicious and abundant in an attractive room and the staff were warm, welcoming and helpful. Right in the centre, overlooking Piazza Maggiore, it is the perfect base for a short or long visit to... More

Positives are location (very central), the warm welcome from staff on arrival, continued during the stay, a six foot bed, the spotless room and a very large shower. There was even a small bottle of Prosecco in the room to welcome us. Negatives are few but we point out that the lift starts from the first floor. There's a very... More

This summer I attended the University of Bologna for a summer school session. For three nights at the beginning of the trip and for the last night of the trip I stayed at the Art Hotel Orologio. Outside of the class and my wonderful "professoressa" this hotel was the highlight of my trip. It is located just off the piazza... More

Upon check-in Domenico was incredibly welcoming and informed us we were lucky to have been upgraded to a suite - much to our surprise and delight. The room was beautiful, with paintings, sculpture, dark woods, and lovely windows opening to the Piazza Maggiore, The all-marble bathroom was luxurious. Domenico recommended an excellent nearby trattoria for lunch (Gianni); later Chiara recommended... More

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.

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
