We stayed in La Contrada dei Monti for the weekend as we were attending a wedding and it was everything we had imagined it would be! I'd read the reviews of others who had visited and we came well prepared, we parked in the multi storey (about 3 minutes walk away) and trundled down the narrow cobbled streets to the hotel.
We stayed in a standard double room, which although a little smaller than some hotel rooms, was charming, clean and well decorated. The bathroom was clean and tidy. Waking up in the morning and looking out of our window down on to the cobbled streets and then looking out to the mountains on the horizon was absolutely beautiful.
The breakfast was lovely and frequently topped up!
However, bear in mind that if you return to the hotel late at night and sit out in the Courtyard talking, you may well get a bucket of water thrown over you (twice). We never quite worked out who threw the water! Be warned that noise does travel quite easily within the hotel - the soundproofing between rooms is not brilliant and if you are going to sit outside late at night, whisper, or, wear a raincoat!
Orta San Guilio is an amazing, relaxing place. Sitting back and drinking coffee in the town square was one of my highlights, as the air is clean, the views are breathtaking and the food is great!
We would highly recommend staying at La Contrada Dei Monti.
