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

Stayed for a couple of nights. Breakfast was good and the boiled eggs spot on. Big big plus, this the first hotel in yonks that has adequate lighting to read by in your room. So many hotels have such dim lighting you just give up and turn the lights out. Bed firm but comfortable and the pillows ok

We stayed in this hotel with our 4mo baby and our dog and couldn't have been happier. Rooms were clean and spacious, the staff was friendly and the location is fantastic!! Breakfast spread is great too. I couldn't ask more of this place, I would definitely recommend it.

Quite small hotel, staff very friendly and professional at the same time. Breakfast also really good. Out from the door of the hotel and you are in the medieval hearth of Bologna in the pedestrian area. I was Born in Bologna and in this hotel I felt at home. Last but not least great value for money.

This is a really lovely hotel right in the centre of Bologna, 20 yards from the Piazza Maggiore. We stayed for 4 nights and had an excellent time. The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast in the morning is self service and has plenty of choice for even the fussiest. The room is air conditioned and has its own... More
