The location of this stylish and welcoming hotel can't be beat: it's right around the corner from Piazza Maggiore, tucked in a quiet little side street. The inviting living room has oriental rugs, paisley couches, and offers prosecco and snacks at aperitivo (aperitif) time. Rooms are mostly painted yellow, with hardwood floors, and some have antique clocks (hence the "orologio" of the hotel's name), and tremendous views of 14th-century Palazzo Comunale just
across the way. Sumptuous breakfasts include a "dolcino" of the day, which is either a little shot glass of cream, chocolate, or a fruit concoction. The hotel frequently has discounted prices and other offers.
