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

We spent 3 nights at the Art Hotel Orologio. Room Nr 30 facing the piazza was very good. A/c worked perfectly. Bathroom a little small but ok. Nice individually packed toiletries. Excellent room service and comfortable bed. We enjoyed the view onto the Piazza and were not bothered by any noise. Breakfast is served by a friendly waitress. Eggs and bacon are charged extra. Private parking at Euro 30 available, ca 5 min. walk from the hotel. In front of the hotel you can only park the car for offloading your luggage. Best to use your navigation system to find the location. Within 5 min. walk there are many Restaurants and Bars - you are literally spoilt for choice. We found the staff friendly and helpful. If you wish to stay centrally this is the hotel to book !!!

For the price paid, you would expect more than a grunt out of the people working there.no one spoke a word to me. Felt like I was intruding every time I asked for something. I’ll cross this off my list.

We spent three nights at Orologio. Hotel is in a very central location and nearby many shops and restaurants. Front desk staff (Erika and Juneth) were very helpful with choosing a small suite and with dinner reservations. Good breakfast notwithstanding Covid protocols. Highly recommend it.

This was a return visit and we were happy to return because the staff was so kind and helpful. The AC didn't work very well in our room but we were fine. I think they were going to fix it but just weren't able to while we were there.
