We had three rooms at the Hotel Olivedo for two nights. The rooms were old fashioned, but spacious, with gorgeous views of the lake. One of the bathrooms was completely modernized with a new shower stall; the other two had bathtubs with handhelds. In addition to the old-fashioned furniture, there are other throwback elements to the hotel noted in other reviews: one is the towels and the other is a no-frills traditional continental breakfast. From my perspective, it's all worth it, for the perspective of waking up and looking out the shutters onto that beautiful lake. Also, anyone who doesn't eat at the hotel is making a sore mistake. The dinners are outstandingly good. If breakfast leaves you feeling a bit peckish, it is a good excuse to go up the hill to the main village square where there is a small fruit store and a butcher shop with very good cookies.
