Stayed here for three nights in Feb 2017. I booked via the BA website (flight and hotel bundle) as I'd used that service before. Small, comfortable room on the top floor. Not too much of a view, but then we only used the hotel as a base for sight-seeing. The hotel could not be more centrally placed. Out of the...

Very friendly and helpful staff. Good buffet breakfast with very cheerful, accommodating waiter serving our coffee. Could not be a better location in Bologna. Our suite was light and bright with large windows and looked right onto the medieval Communale and Piazza Maggiore.

Very happy with our room which was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. Some reviewers have referred to the noise from outside but didn't bother us as it is exactly what you'd expect from a hotel so close to the Piazza Maggiore! Stunning location as you are literally 30 seconds from the square. Breakfast was lovely too with lots of choice...

A very cute and comfortable hotel. Perfectly situated in the heart of town and close to all attractions. It looks a little dated and the fittings certainly are a little old, but I think it added to the charm. The breakfast in the morning was a sizeable offering and filled us completely before our day of exploration. Friendly staff made...

Greeted by happy, helpful staff and had been given a room with a small balcony, which was lovely. The hotel is perfectly positioned being central to this historic city. The hotel was very clean and the bed extremely comfortable. Chocolates and a bottle of bubbly was left for us on our first night! The breakfast was the best I have...

I have stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in the Piazza Maggiore suite for an average nightly rate of 450 Eur. Let me start at the beginning, the reception area is very small and dirty, the bell "boy" is older then my father so I felt quite stupid when he was carrying the luggage, I tried to tell him...

We stayed five nights at Hotel Orologio in October 2016. The entire experience from beginning to end was flawless. This is an art hotel that is accommodating to travelers without being touristy. The staff are professional, courteous, and English-friendly. The breakfast buffet was the best of our trip in Italy - a wonderful array of meats, cheeses, fresh fruit, breads,...
