This is a lovely quaint hotel with the most charming and helpful staff. Our room was beautifully clean with a very comfortable bed and an amazing view of the central square. Despite being so central it was never noisy. The staff couldn't be more helpful, booking a taxi for us and getting breakfast bags together for our 4 30am check... More

This hotel should get 5 start just for its location, right I the heart of Bologna. The hotel is absolutely charming. The stuff are very friendly and helpful. We had a very nice room for 3 people with a specious bathroom. The hotel also provides you an option to reserve parking in advance. It also provides great breakfast.

This amazing hotel is a little gem, just off the main Piazza Maggiore and central to explore the city. Friendly, helpful staff, rooms spotless, cleaned daily and a fabulous choice of breakfast with coffee freshly made to order. Lovely decor and our spacious suite looked out towards the Piazza. Can't fault it - we hope to return. 󾓩

Boutique hotel in an excellent city centre location just off the main square. Our room was on the small side but very nicely furnished. There was an enormous breakfast selection in a very nice setting. I'd thoroughly recommend staying here.

We love staying in small hotels in the centre of towns we visit. Orologio was just Perfect for us, Central location Within short walking distance to most of the sights, restaurants etc that we wanted to visit. As an added bonus we had free cinema and concerts on the Piazza Maggiore. The hotel is rather quirky, the lift starts one... More

We stayed in a room with a balcony you could see the main square from. The room was beautifully presented, as we the breakfast and the location couldn't have been better. The service was also great, lots of good advice and staff were very friendly. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone coming to the city of Bologna!

It's a nice walk to the train station and in the middle of everything that is anything. It's a little difficult to find, but look for the red carpet to welcome you in the piazza and you'll know you found it. Great restaurant behind it with the best pizza.

This hotel was just great. I was traveling with my 80 yr old parents and two 17yr olds. The front desk was responsive, kind. Open 24hrs. The rooms were air conditioned, clean (I love crisp ironed pillowcases), the beds comfortable and plenty of hot water. My 80yr old mum cried when she look out of her window (rm 52) it... More

We could not have been happier with this quaint hotel - its location, customer service, room quality, cleanliness, and breakfast. The only negative with this property is that the check in desk and staircase carpet is in need of updating. Otherwise, you absolutely cannot go wrong with the Orologico and a stay in Bologna! Bellisimo!

Great location. Lovely friendly welcome. Lift only from 1st floor upwards so mobility impaired people should avoid. Big room was delightful, modern, super comfy bed and really nice bathroom. Great breakfast laid out on first floor. Don't attempt to drive and park in city centre, you are bound to get a ticket for contacting some access rule. Take a cab... More
