Center of town, but funky renovations in old bldg.

Posted Oct 4, 2015
Cons: New beds, maybe a shower curtain, comfortable chair, bigger tv.
Staff pleasant and helpful, as they manage 3 properties. Don't rely on GPS as roads are very narrow and two way. Hotel situated on the central piazza, good for eating, shopping and access to ferry, but late eating crowds can make lots of noise if you plan to sleep early. Hotel very old and rooms renovated in modern design. Our bed was a king sized soft futon, which was not so comfortable. Our shower appeared to be added on, and was on one of the walls in the corner of the living room/bedroom. No closet, but a few shelves in the room for clothing. Breakfast was an unexpected feast! Cereals, meats, cheeses, quiches, hard boiled eggs, fruit, yogurt, coffee, espresso machine, juices and a variety of coffee cakes. Here, the hotel was outstanding!

Great location, plan ahead if arriving by car.

Interesting and quirky room, lovely breakfast. Top floor room called 'a room of ones own' has a great view of Lake Orta and the stone roofs of the city. The shower is certainly one of the oddest I have come across, in a good way.

Right in the centre of things

Posted Aug 31, 2014
Pros: Location.
Cons: Better quality bed linen.
Location: You can easily go to the island in the middle of the lake and easy walking to the top of the hill for great views. Loads of lovely restaurants nearby.
You can't beat this hotel for location. It was right on the central square and a footstep away from everything you'd want to do in Orta. It was a little complicated checking in as you have to go to another office and although it says 'free parking' the car park is 1km up a hill, so we used the paying underground car park closer to the town instead. The room was clean, but for the price it wasn't quite up to the quality I'd expect. It had a nice balcony looking onto the square and they provided tea/coffee and juice, which we didn't get anywhere else. The sheets on the bed were a bit worn and the bed was a bit uncomfortable. Everything seemed to come from Ikea which surprised me! It seemed like they'd gone for style over substance - an open shower, for example, in the main room, but cheap linen! The breakfast is really good, lots of choice and really tasty.

Awkward reception

Posted Jul 1, 2013
Pros: Interesting decor
Cons: Reception and baggage assistance
The reception was two blocks away from the hotel and was not explained in the reservation instructions. A large puddle formed during the night from A/C drainage. Breakfast was very good though impersonal.

AVOID THIS HOTEL AT ALL COSTS!!

Posted Nov 16, 2010
We did - after looking at the rooms and smelling it (whole hotel reeked of cleaning fluid), we forfeited our money and went to a wonderful hotel a few steps away (Leon D'Oro). We are seasoned travelers, equally at home in luxury hotels or camping, but....The first room smelled, had a bed that sunk to the floor and minimalist furnishings (safe to house a college fraternity!). They showed us a second room that had a futon bed (!) with dirty sheets and said it would be made up soon (this was at 6:30 pm). Orta is a wonderful town. If you go, don't ruin the experience. Even though this hotel is on the charming square, it is to be avoided. Go to the Leon D'Oro, instead, and get a room looking out at the lake and the square - you won't be sorry.

Posizione centralisima sulla Piazza e camera molto bella e particolare; completamente differente dalle solite camere d'hotel abituati a vedere. Seppur una camera con una certa età, noi ne siamo rimasti affascinati.

fine settimana al lago

Posted Dec 12, 2016
Pros: La vista dalla finestra sulla piazza e di fianco il lago
Cons: L'accoglienza un pò freddina del personale ed il parcheggio non è proprio gratuito.
Location: Posizione hotel centralissimo e da vedere l'isola di San Giulio e la parte del centro Storico con salita al Monastero
Buona location proprio vicinissimo al lago ed all'imbarcadero dell'isola di San Giulio. Chek in da fare in un ufficietto un pò staccato dall'albergo (non indicato molto bene). Buona colazione con ottimi prodotti soprattutto le marmellate.

Kreatives Boutique Hotel mit Entwicklungspotenzial

Posted Sep 17, 2015
Pros: Die Einrichtung des Frühstücksraumes, das Frühstücksbüffet - superkreativ und genauso lecker!!
Cons: Passt schon
Location: Das Hotel ist mitten im historischen Zentrum des kleinen Städtchens Orta San Gulio direkt am Lago di Orta.
Wir waren lediglich eine Nacht dort, daher ist es eher schwer, eine komplette Beurteilung zu erstellen. Meine Bewertung leitet sich daher aus dem "ersten Eindruck" ab. Die Zimmer sind kreativ und mit Liebe eingerichtet, man hat auch versucht, Designelemente zu verwenden, was zwar hübsch anzuschauen, aber in der Umsetzung leider in die sprichwörtliche Hose gegangen ist. Beispiel dafür: die Dusche mitten im Zimmer mit futuristisch gebogenem Rohr, aus dem an der Längsseite das Wasser herauskommt sieht echt klasse aus - leider ist der Spritzschutz bzw. die Glasscheibe, die als solcher gedacht ist, an der falschen Stelle und das Wasser spritzt beim duschen ins Zimmer..:o/..Wäre die Glasscheibe an der Längsseite und um 90 Grad gedreht, wäre alles super! Als kleines Schmankerl war der Deckel der Toilette schräg abgebrochen - sah aus wie Kunst, die Bruchstelle war aber messerscharf und damit auch nicht wirklich spaßig....das Bett war fantastisch groß und superbequem, leider kamen wir nicht viel zum schlafen, da in der Bar direkt unter unserem Zimmerfenster bis in den Morgen gefeiert und getrunken wurde...

Ungewöhnlich. Interessant.

Dieses Hotel versucht sich von anderen zu unterscheiden. Und schafft es im positiven Sinne. Nette Ideen, nicht das übliche Einerlei, verbunden mit guter Qualität. Das Frühstück ist wunderbar und bereits inklusive. Achtung: autofreie Stadt!

Super hôtel :-)

Posted Aug 24, 2015
Pros: La douche, la propreté, le personnel très sympathique, Merci à Yana (réceptionniste).
Cons: juste mettre une information (affichée contre la vitre intérieure) pour nous informer où se trouve l'hôtel Olina au no 40.
Location: Aller au lac (20 min. à pied), l'eau y est transparente. Plage payante avec chaises longues et parasol ou "free on gazon" ... Vraiment très agréable.
La chambre était très grande et l'idée de la douche dans la chambre (sans porte) est vraiment originale et super ! L'hôtel est vraiment très bien situé au milieu du village d'Orta et c'est un endroit vraiment authentique et entourés de commerces et de restaurants. Le restaurant Piccolo Hôtel Olina est à proximité et c'était vraiment délicieux et un super service avec le personnel quadrilingue. Orta est vraiment un endroit magnifique et idéal pour promenades romantiques et découvertes de produits locaux excellents (vins, huiles, pâtes, fromages , ...) :-)
