I have stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in the Piazza Maggiore suite for an average nightly rate of 450 Eur.

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,...

On arrival the greeting was friendly and welcoming. We were given a lovely suite with a great city view. This hotel is so close to some of the best sights in the city, so literally just drop your bags off and wander into Bolognas mix of history and culture.

A stone's throw from the Piazza Maggiore in the pedestrian precinct in the heart of central Bologna, the hotel is only indicated by a modest 'Albergo' sign outside. The rooms are well appointed, spacious and quiet. Presumably it was a substantial private residence before to judge by a curiosity: the lift only starts above the first floor, but there are...

This hotel couldn't be more central to Bologna. This is a nice sized hotel with pleasant staff at a good price. I was concerned about the drive into center city, but the photo / written directions were good (they sent them to me in Italian, but I found them in English after a Google search).
