typical of European places, the airconditioning worked marginally at best and the shower... well, let's just say Italy is not known for having spacious showers. Being familiar with europe and what to expect I'd say the staff was excellent as were the amenities, but for an american traveling to europe for the first time, expect to have some stuggles with your shower and room temperature modulation.

Room was tidy and clean, food was great and service excellent, the hotel had it's own swimming pool watch out for the 1 euro charge per towel, it is in walking distance of Orta town. Our room had the most fantastic views of the lake and Island. the most stunning thing was to sit on the main balcony and have breakfast overlooking the town of Orta and the Lake, that alone was well worth every euro spent on this short 5 day holiday.

This is a place full of remarkable history and charm- a hotel for intelligent people who are looking for something out of the ordinary. It is an older Italian villa aging with grace.
Make sure you get the suite which is nicely decorated, very spacious room with a huge comfortable two-poster bed and a big whirlpool. We stayed one night with our two girls (8,11) who slept in the large sofabed in the separate entrance room to the suite. Bright rooms with a huge balcony and windows in three directions. Big plasma TV.
The fireplace was lit up in the morning for the generous breakfast with plenty of options.
We would definetely stay here again.
