We spent one night only at the Art Hotel Orologio in Bologna. Our first visit to the city. We managed to get to the hotel, from the airport by bus, without any hassles. Situated in the centre of the old city it was a perfect location for all the sightseeing and restuarants. We were greeted by friendly staff. Our luggage was taken to our room. We were lucky enough to be given a suite with a view of the piazza in front. The lounge area, with a sleeper couch and ostrich skin ottoman, is a reasonable size. Complimentary small bottle of Prosecco with salty snacks to eat. The bedroom a bit tight, but one only sleeps there. Beautiful crisp white linen. Blankets in the cupboard. The bathroon was beautiful. Beige marble throughout. Lovely big shower with rain showerhead that had a blue LED light around it, that lit up the shower. Loved it. Seat in shower. No shortage of soap, shower cap, shoe sponge etc. Discovered the minibar and kettle etc hidden behind a mirror in the lounge. Smart! Well stocked. Breakfast was very good by Italian standards. Plenty of fruit, yoghurt, cakes and cappucino. A elegant/classical style hotel that has many fine touches and the staff all very accomodating. I look forward to my next visit there.
