They say position is everything so that would make this quirky hotel just that. Right in the main piazza where you can see the lake from your balcony – albeit at an angle. Our room was very large, with modest furniture, some weird lighting and a couple of seats. One seat is a denim bean bag. The bed was very comfortable & our room quiet (on the top floor).
To the quirky part – the shower. Its an open sided glass shower of massive proportions, dominating the room. Water can splash if you're an energetic showerer but it's worth it just to enjoy all the hotel has to offer.
They offer a fantastic breakfast - it could be dinner, lunch or breakfast. People come JUST for breakfast – it's delicious & plentiful. Fresh food, salamis, proscuitto, eggs, toast and cakes ( ? for breakfast – is this a good thing ? Not sure), museli, cereal .... and much more.
The staff are really good but they are not there ALL the time. So if you want your hand held this hotel is not for you – but there is something peaceful & mystical about Lake Orta that's attractive as is this hotel. It's not perfect but it's more than nice.
There's a lift, free wifi on the ground floor, a fridge with free soft drinks/water and a few nibbles. We stayed 2 nights & it was a good start to our Italy tour.
