Literally 20 or so steps from Piazza Maggiore and Piazza delle Nettuno bang in the middle of the old town, a modern, efficient and comfortable hotel. Helpful staff. Good wifi. Nice restaurants nearby.

Greenwich, Connecticut24 contributions55 helpful votes
Very nice small, boutique style hotel right in central Bologna in the Piazza Maggiore, which is the beautiful, picturesque square in the center of Medieval Bologna. You are right by all the attractions you would want to see. And while there are no cars in the square, right next to the front door is a street where you can access cabs very easily. The rooms are small, but clean and well kept. The included breakfast is very filing with high quality eggs, yogurt, cold cuts, fruit and baked goods - definitely give the buffet a 4 out of 5 - very good, but not over the top. One tip is to be careful of room position - mine overlooked the piazza and while this is bright and airy, it can also be noisy. I thought this might be a problem at night, but it seemed to quiet down as it got later and was not a problem. I had stayed in The Grand Hotel Majestic Gia Baglioni (5 star) a few years ago and had wanted to stay there this time. However it was booked so I chose the Orologio (4 star) and for less than half the price, the Orologio was a much better value - smaller rooms, and a less grand lobby, but a better buffet and better location being right in the Piazza. I would definitely stay at the Art Hotel Orologio again.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. My room was cozy and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was Italian/continental and featured local produce, served in an elegant dining area. The staff were always very friendly and helpful. All in all a perfect choice for a city visit. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to family and friends!
