“A pleasant experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

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.

We had the pleasure of staying at this really nice hotel last October. The staff were very friendly, the room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was also good. I would stay here again and recommend it to others!

Stayed only for a night, so perfect location to travel around the entire center of Bologna. And parking available very close to property. Clean room and beautiful view - we stayed on the 4th floor facing Palazzo D'Accursio and Piazza Maggiore off to the right. What a beautiful view at night. Breakfast was great as well - very large selection and everything was fresh and high quality. Highly recommend this property.

Stayed November 2013

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights in January, we were met on arrival at the Hotel by friendly staff and were given a lovely room overlooking the Piazza. The room was a large room with windows opening onto the view which the Hotel is in a little side street very close by the main Piazza.The room was both comfortable and quiet with windows that shut out the noise from the Piazza. The bathroom was of a generous size with good quality bathroom soaps,shampoo etc.
The breakfast was one of the best we had in our 6 weeks in Europe, the breakfast room as is all the Hotel designed in true old fashioned Italian style.........which we adore. Beside the breakfast room there is a large sitting room that we often had a Prosecco each evening before heading out for dinner....very comfortable and a great start to the night. Bologna is the food mecca for Northern Italy so you can't miss not having a dining experience of sheer delight...Papperdelle alla Bolognese just to name one .....the Trattoria just around the corner from the hotel serves fabulous Italian dishes in true authentic Trattoria style, not expensive and great choices.
Shopping in Bologna was the very best in Italy ..better then Rome, Florence. The arcades are wonderful to walk along and such stunning architecture we walked every day for 5 hours along the arcades...........a joy. The Art Hotel Orologio is a wonderful comfortable hotel for your stay in Bologna.

Room Tip: Ask for a front room..........and if possible on the third floor.

just an adorable hotel in perfect location for Bologna -- we borrowed the pushbikes and enjoyed a spectacular day sigghtseeing. I loved the old fashioned decor and so close to the shopping precinct and some delicious restaurants just off the piazza. It was wonderful to find a breakfast with more than white rolls, sliced ham, cheese and a yoghurt-- here I enjoyed delicious fresh peaches and great cappucino.

My husband and I stayed here two nights and were very happy with the hotel. We were upgraded to a suite, which was a nice surprise. Clean, friendly, great breakfast. Bed and linens were very comfortable. The collection of antique clocks was a nice touch. It is steps from "the piazza" with Gianbologna's Neptune and fountain and walkable to all the sights. This was our first time in Bologna- a very beautiful city!
