Hotel La Bussola, Orta San Giulio

Lake Orta is a beautiful town to visit
It was early in the season and the weather was bad, but the Hotel Bussola was open and welcoming. The included breakfast was great and even included custom egg orders. Since the restaurant was not open for other meals, I cannot comment on those. The outdoor pool and deck area was also not open, but looked impressive and probably hopping during the season. Orta San Guilio was a pleasant surprise as a destination and there is a lot to see in the area.

Good value for a decent hotel
Pros: Lake Orta is beautiful, charming, romantic with restaurants and shops in the town. Hotel is just outside the old town, about a 10 minute walk to the central plaza. A little longer than I would have liked. Hotel is clean-- pool water was especially inviting. Hotel's front desk and cleaning staff were extremely accommodating and friendly. Free parking. Cons: Beds are awful. Very hard. I could feel the springs. (But staff did their best to make them more comfortable for us by putting a comforter under the sheets.) Hotel needs an update. Decor seems out of date. Wait staff in restaurant was not as friendly as other staff in the hotel.

Romantic Lake Orta
Our third visit to Orta San Giuliano and second stay at Hotel la Bussola. Comfortable, family run hotel with great views of the lake. Ideal location for short walk into the old town. Highly recommended.
