Hotel Orologio is a small hotel with not much around. The service and breakfast are good, but the room are kind of old and smelly. If you need a restaurant you must take a car to some places in downtown. Location is beautiful tho.

The hotel Orologio is located just off Piazza Maggiore in the heart of Bologna.An ancient building that has a lot of atmosphere and is astonishing quiet. Breakfast is for Italian standards very good. Everything in the center of Bologna can be easily reached on foot from the hotel.A lot of nice restaurants are just around the corner.

Art Hotel Orlogio is a very well located hotel with well-designed interior, delightful room and ditto bathroom. The breakfast is superb and so is the helpful staff. I would rate the hotel better than the 3 stars in the guide and would identify it as a charming hotel rather than an art hotel.

The Art Hotel Orologio is in one of the main squares of Bologna. It is within easy walking distance to the stations, shops, parks and bars. The hotel is charming with a wonderful collection of old clocks on every floor, lovely old furnishings throughout with comfortable bedrooms. The breakfast, served in a communal dining/sitting area, is very good and the...

The hotel is yards from the Piazza Maggiore on a pedestrian square in the heart of the city. It is furnished in an opulent traditional style. The lift only starts from the first floor, so access could be difficult for some. Our room overlooked the clock tower and had all the usual facilities and a/c, the marble bathroom had a...

The hotel could not be better located for the centre of Bologna and as a result makes an ideal location for a short break holiday which is what we were having. We got off to a poor start because our room wasn't ready so we sat around until around 5.00pm before we could freshen up to go out. We received...

Stayed 3 nights here in April. Hotel is ideally located in the historic centre. Our room was newly refurbished in traditional style, and comfortable. The breakfast is very good and served until a civilised 11 am. The staff were very charming and helpful, one taking the trouble to remind me to exhibit a permit issued by the hotel in my...

Nice hotel and good breakfast, but a little noisy as so central. Pity about hotel prices being so high in Bologna, we actually booked Airbnb but had to leave the flat due to noise and dust from building site next door making it impossible. Put us right off Airbnb in future.

A very comfortable stay. The location is great - right by the Piazza Maggiore. The only drawback is that it is can be a bit noisy although presumably in the summer when the a/c is on and you can keep the windows closed it isn't a problem. Pleasant staff. Breakfast is fine, although they ran out of fruit in one...
