We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights in January, we were met on arrival at the Hotel by friendly staff and were given a lovely room overlooking the Piazza. The room was a large room with windows opening onto the view which the Hotel is in a little side street very close by the main Piazza.The room was both comfortable and quiet with windows that shut out the noise from the Piazza. The bathroom was of a generous size with good quality bathroom soaps,shampoo etc.
The breakfast was one of the best we had in our 6 weeks in Europe, the breakfast room as is all the Hotel designed in true old fashioned Italian style.........which we adore. Beside the breakfast room there is a large sitting room that we often had a Prosecco each evening before heading out for dinner....very comfortable and a great start to the night. Bologna is the food mecca for Northern Italy so you can't miss not having a dining experience of sheer delight...Papperdelle alla Bolognese just to name one .....the Trattoria just around the corner from the hotel serves fabulous Italian dishes in true authentic Trattoria style, not expensive and great choices.
Shopping in Bologna was the very best in Italy ..better then Rome, Florence. The arcades are wonderful to walk along and such stunning architecture we walked every day for 5 hours along the arcades...........a joy. The Art Hotel Orologio is a wonderful comfortable hotel for your stay in Bologna.
