The Hotel's location was terrific and allowed us to see the Historic Area on foot. Staff was outstanding and saved the day when our scheduled food tour was canceled. The staff also worked hard to find us a store to purchase a gift for a friend, Great experience.

Although we had booked the sister hotel Novo prior to Covid we were moved to Orologio and upgraded as a gesture. We absolutely loved the location, right in the heart of Bologna, central to everything. Fabulous restaurant just outside as well as many in surrounding streets. The Hotel had upgraded us to a suite which was on the 5th floor and beautifully decorated, we really couldnt fault anything. Staff were so helpful and always around. The breakfast although continental was sufficient and very nice, you could choose to pay for eggs etc but we were very happy with the offering and even better it is on until 11am. The Covid issues were covered very well, with face coverings offered at Reception and hand sanitisers everywhere. Loved the hotel and Bologna. I would recommend both the Red open top bus and the little train 'express' as you see very different parts of the city and gave us the chance to go back to areas we had seen.

We loved the location, atmosphere and rooms. Everyone there was really accommodating, super friendly and very helpful with questions . The breakfast was great. The location is right by the main square and in the middle of all of the activities.

Fabulous stay. Friendly and attentive staff, clean and spacious rooms. Recommend the suite. Location perfect. Breakfast was delightful. They even made a special trip to the store to supply packing tape when we requested to use theirs. Special shout-out to Junet at the front desk. Thank you!

The hotel is situated just in the city center though then somewhat noisy - fair enough. The light in the rooms are awful you can’t see with that light and in the bathroom some spotlight would do wonders 😉 Probably due to COVID-19 breakfast is not worth to right about and it seems very complicated
