“Charming and Unique”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

Just returned from a wonderful holiday in Orta San Giulio, and an excellent stay @ the Piccolo Hotel Olina, which is charming,unique and quirky.The hotel office is a short walk into Orta from the car parks on the hill and easy to find. Our room was across the street and on the second floor. Hotel staff were cheerful, helpful, pleasant and polite.Our room was spotless, and the shower was excellent. As others have said breakfast was a feast. Piccolo Hotel deserves a higher rating than a two star, we might not have had a lake view but for charm and originality Piccolo Hotel pushes the right buttons.

Room Tip: We stayed in "Simba" on the second floor across from the hotel office. The room opened out...

The staff of the hotel was very helpful. The hotel itself is very well located on the main street although Orta itself is small town/village and everything is close to the main squire and the restaurants. Our rooms (for four and for two people-second floor) were big with interesting design. The breakfast is in the next hotel (only 20m away) and is truly delicious and “ART”. Good price-good quality.
The view from the small balcony isn’t impressive. There is no lift and the staircase is narrow.

As an independent traveller Orta San Giulio is going to be rather a challenge as it is pedestrianised.
Our room was very quaint, rustic, dark, not really to our taste, but clean and more than adequate.
The breakfast taken in a nearby hotel certainly was to our taste though- what a feast!
The attached restaurant was also excellent.

Room Tip: I expect the rooms vary a lot, if you are not too exhausted having found the place and sorted your l...

The Hotel is located in various structures in Orta San Giulio, is a two stars hotel, but the breakfast included in the price is really a five star superior one!!! Piccolo Hotel Olina has clean, well furnished, bright rooms and give you the chance to stay in a magic place without spending a fortune. The restaurant of the hotel is a good level restaurant included in the slow food circle.

Room Tip: ask the room with "vista lago"

The room 15 wasn't really glamorous and didn't quite mirror the price we paid but it was clean and really central which was a bonus for visiting.
We had the New Year's Eve dinner there and it was absolutely AMAZING!!!! The selection was absolutely to die for, 8 course meal that turned into a sensorial wonder.

The breakfast was ok too but I wasn't really impressed by the service there we had to wait ages for a plate to be given to us and ages again to order the coffee but this was all down to a waiter that was a bit of a nonsense :(

The hotel and the restaurant don't have a privileged view on the lake but have similar prices of places that do so going back I'd go for a different hotel with lake view and lake view restaurant.

We stayed in room 15 in the Depandance of the Piccolo Hotel Olina: the hotel offers the rooms in 2 separates builings in the historical centre.
The room and the beds were confortables and the service was perfect:
* very good welcoming by the reception desk with lots of tourist suggestion
* wonderfull buffet breakfast with large variety of cheese, sausages, hams and cakes
* delicious dinner at the RISTORO OLINA where we had also a 10% discount....
we will certainly return!!!!

Staying in the center of Orta San Giulio is a challenge: this is a "mirrors-in" town to drive into and then only to drop your luggage. It's worth it, but only if you're going to stay a few days.

Piccolo Hotel Olina is a assemblage of rooms in the town core, not a standing hotel. Check in where they tell you and then they will show you where your room is. Ours was OK, but on the ground level on the main access 'street' up to the parking lot, which meant it was fairly noisy. There was also no view or outside space of our own to hang out, although sitting on a bench in Piazza Motta and watching the constant flow of tourists, resident kids and brides/grooms was a pretty good alternative.

But the breakfast! Oy! Breakfast was served by a collaborating hotel right on the Piazza; tables inside and out. In three trips, totaling nearly 3 months of travel in Italy in the past five years, and NEVER have I seen a spread like this. A serve-yourself buffet of cakes, pastries, meats, cheeses, breads, cereals, dairy products, juices, fruit, and of course coffee and teas. And not just one meat, but six platters of everything from basic prosciutto to smoked cinghiale. At least 8 cheeses -- really good stuff. A dozen different pastries. It was like they systematically determined the entire range of what Italians, Germans, French, UK and American travelers want to eat and then GOT ALL OF IT. Times two.

Eat all you want. Waddle out.

Room Tip: Ask for something that's not ground-level, if they have it.
