Orologio was a delight early December. Piazza Magiore suite was one of the best rooms in downtown hotels. hotel staff were more than pleased to help and amenities were real good. Breakfast was impressive.

This converted historic mansion is very well situated: a 15 minute brisk walk from the train station, at Piazza Maggiore, with all of central Bologna within easy walking distance. My check in process was easy and friendly; I was provided a helpful city guide, overview, and food/wine recommendations map with solid choices at a range of prices. The well maintained... More

We spent just one night in Bologna and chose this hotel because of its location - central, just next to the duomo - ideal for sightseeing and walking in the town. Overall a good experience but the hotel is good without being excellent. Do not expect a luxury place and room design is certainly dated. However it is very clean,... More

We stayed here based the recommendation of our Italian Days Food Experience tour guide. Location was fantastic (though tough to find if driving - call for directions before venturing into the medieval section of town). Hotel opens onto the famous Piazza del Nettuno and is close to many attractions, bars, and restaurants. Hotel staff was helpful with restaurant recommendations. Rooms... More

We stayed a night here, we have been before. The rooms are a good price and fine, nothing very special but clean and functional. Our room faced the main square which is great for the views but at night it is so noisy, we barely slept at all what with late night drunks and when they left the street cleaners... More

This is a charming and elegant 3-star hotel. We were offered Orologio after being displeased with our room at the Commercianti, and enjoyed it from the onset. It’s located in a beautiful square in the historic center. We stayed in a small suite with a pleasant décor and a nice view of the square. The staff was friendly and helpful.... More
