Spent some time after breakfast wandering around Parma town with the shops now open. Called into a delicatessen and bought some olives, tomatoes, bread and Parmigano cheese chunks for a 'picnic' lunch later, as well as some red Lambrusco, some local Balsamic Vinegar, pasta and some olive oil, to take home. Checked out and made our way to Bologna, a short trip of 60 miles taking just over an hour ...

Australia that is for sure.
Checked in and got to my room, small but
again nice, I spied the two things that I had been dreaming of almost since I
left Melbourne, a shower and a proper bed. I have to say that few showers have
felt so good and it was so nice to feel clean again…

... night but didn't make the gondola ride too enjoyable for us! Exploring Venice by foot for the day, we didn't get lost due to having Brendan direct us around, he was on your for the first 7 days then met up with the group back in Venice for the day. We were told you hadn't been to Venice if you haven't got lost, I think we'd all agree the vaparetto ride and taxi ride we ...

It was our turn to do our introductions on the bus (Kim stop laughing). We were lucky last and Im glad thats done now. I also forgot to mention Mum had a fright yesterday, it wasn't good.

Historical Traveler Reviews Art Hotel Orologio Bologna
Quaint and elegant Hotel Orologio
My husband and I spent 4 days at Hotel Orologio in June 2005 and hated to leave. From the friendly and kind front desk welcome and help we received from Erica and Luca to the immaculate spacious room and bath, speedy reasonable laundry service, and beautiful and tranquil breakfast room where we started each morning with various and generous choices of fruit, cheese, breads, coffee--American and Italian, we felt pampered. Hotel Orologio was exactly what we hoped for--an elegant European hotel in the heart of everything. We walked everywhere to historic sites, restaurants, even the train station. We recommend Bologna and Hotel Orologio to our friends and look forward to our return.
Just got back from a two night stay at this lovely hotel.Positioned just off St Marks Square, easy to find.Large bright modern rooms.Booked a juinor suite for 2 adults and 2 children, which turned out to have two ensuites and dressing areas as well as a bedroom and sitting room with bed settee and a kitchenette/dining area area.Staff on reception helpful.Only drawback is you have to make your own breakfast in room but they provide pre packed croissants,crackers,biscuits,yoghurts,juices,cheese,pate. Shop around for a good price try Venere.
What a find!
My husband and I stayed in the hotel Orologio for 3 nights and I must say it was an absolute find and really contributed to our enjoyment of this delightful city. The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring the city, smack bang next to Piazza Magiore (but we never heard noise from the piazza and the clock does not sound at night). I was a little concerned before arrival that it might be a dingy little hotel but was so delighted to find spacious, clean and well decorated rooms and immaculate bathrooms. The feel of the hotel is very intimate with only 45 rooms and the staff are very friendly and helpful and speak excellent English. I have already recommended this hotel to many of my friends and family with confidence that they will love it as much as we did.
Best location - hidden gem
We spent our days after Christmas in Bologna. Orologio is very well run. The suite we were in was extremely clean. The staff was very very helpful. The location superb, right in the middle of everything. I would strongly recommend it.
For some reason, Bologna hotels seem to be fiercely expensive the days I wanted to be there - the Jolly was going to charge me Eu299 for a single, so I did a bit of checking and this seemed nice from the reviews. I was very pleasantly surprised - paid around half the Jolly rate and got a lovely room in a quiet backstreet. This is extremely central, great for tourists, for those who want to get right into the heart of Bologna. It has a couple of sister hotels, but this is the cheapest of the four. Service was good, the room, though quite heavily wallpapered, was elegant and clean and recently decorated. There was also a bath, which I was very happy about. Breakfast was a feast - which countries do you get to eat home made cakes for breakfast?! and was served till a very reasonable eleven o'clock. I loved it and would definitely go back again.
wonderful experience - -
hotel location excellent, staff helpful and pleasant, the breakfast was great, highly recommend this hotel
A good, central location with views of the main square. Uninspiring flowery rooms and a rather unpleasant plastic bathroom, noisey from the outside frolics in the square, but very clean and well kept with a good breakfast. Rather pay more and try one of the other hotels in this Family's chain. This did not live up to the promise of the earlier reviews.
A beutiful little corner in Bologna.
When you book a room from a thumbnail photo thousands of miles away ... you never know what you'll find. What we found in Bologna was a beautiful little hotel that made our stay memorable and enjoyable. From the perfect location to the friendly people to the impeccable houskeeping ... this is the real deal. If your looking for old world charm this is the place. Not you cookie cutter, can be anywhere, huge chain hotel ... the Orologio is ... well, Italian with a capitl I!
Loved this hotel. I stayed there in March 2003. You couldn't get anything more central. The rooms are a good size and the hotel is well run. An excellent buffet breakfast. Also free internet available if you want to check news/sports. There is also a good choice of bars and restaurants nearby, the best reason for going to Bologna in the first place! I would go back anytime, it was wonderful there and worth every penny.
