Recent guest reviews

My husband and I recently stayed at the Art Hotel Orologio just off Piazza Maggiore in Bologna. Excellent location to explore Bologna and its surrounds. A boutique style hotel with professional , helpful and friendly staff . The hotel itself is clean warm and inviting, Breakfast is served in a lovely breakfast room and sets you up for the day ahead. We will not pass the Orologio for accommodation on our next trip to Piazza Maggiore Bologna. Thank you for your warmth and friendliness. E & J

Somewhat hard to get to by car, but well worth the effort. Park first then register you car plate to avoid fines. Superb location facing the main square. They have an apartment that suits up to 6 people, otherwise rooms are small but cosy. Friendly and helpful at the reception. Excellent breakfast Picture of view from our room

I stayed here for 3 nights in October 2017 as part of a tour. Located on Piazza Maggiore. Very good service. Breakfast buffet pretty good. Bed and room temperature were wonderful. Would absolutely recommend and stay here again.

Lovely classic old little hotel in the middle of the center. Really quiet. Lovely staff. Great antique/boutique interior. Breakfast is great. Outside the hotel you’re in the middle of the city. I’ll be back.

What a fab Hotel. Staff so helpful from the two gentlemen on the desk to the friendly smiling young lady at breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble.The room was stylish, clean well kept and all the necessities including disposable slippers and shower caps. We had 3 nights here and the location was superb, so central to everything.Breakfast was again superb, such a wide choice and fresh beautiful display. I would highly recommend this to everyone and would stay here again.

This hotel is perfect for visitors to Bologna. It was a 20min walk from Bologna Central Station. And right in the middle of all the sightseeing. We found great restaurants and the markets on the doorstep. The room was very comfortable. We had a room on the 5th floor and there was a lift. It was very quiet and reasonable size and also had a small bath and heated floors! Fabulous breakfast with a huge selection and top quality ingredients. I can highly recommend this hotel!

The hotel is in a magnificent location in central Bologna. The building is old but renovated. Rooms are clean and decently sized and the bathrooms are modern and functional. The hotel has its own unique flavor with many rooms having individual names. There are nice antique clocks on the stairs. Breakfast is excellent and the staff is friendly. WiFi is free and I was able to obtain codes for multiple devices just by asking. I will definitely consider this at the top of my list in Bologna.

I stayed only one night in this hotel. My room was very clean and very comfortable. Breakfast buffet was delicious, and maybe the best I have seen in Italy. The location of the hotel was perfect, close to Piazza Maggiore. I would love to stay there again.

The hotel is located right in the heart of Bologna, and a 20 minute walk to the main train station. We liked our room very much and appreciated the welcome champagne and note congratulating us on our honeymoon. Breakfast was delicious and one of the best we had in Italy. We stayed at other Art Hotels in Bologna, and this was just as good as the others.

Lovely hotel and very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast buffet was very good with plenty of great coffee. It can be noisy outside as the big walls bounce the sound around but double glazing and air con sorted it out. Really enjoyed our stay
