The hotel shut down and is empty now, Orta is a fantastic place but blighted by overpricing by hotels and restaurants, The apartment rental side is worth looking into as fantastic supermarkets 15 mins drive away and there are one or two good places to eat for a treat,

Yes, the view and the location on the lake are unsurpassed - unfortunately the view from inside the room out the french doored balcony is very narrow, and you have to actually get up and peer out to see anything-but it's worth getting up. This hotel needs a complete overhaul, to bring it into (even the 1990's would be good)... More

I'm writing this review 4 years after we visited so the detail is lacking and there may have been changes to the decor. We stayed in a room with a view of the lake. The view is spectacular and that in itself makes the hotel worthy of a visit. The bells from the church on the island start at about... More

It is now faded and inefficiently run, while the dinner was quite terrible. What incensed us, however, was that we booked on condition that we... More

... the Hotel Orta could stand a refurbishing! I hesitated writing anything too terribly negative about the hotel because it has three very positive things going for it: a beautiful lakefront location on the town's main piazza; a charming, multilingual and helpful staff; and (if you have a lakefront room, a few euros extra) a view of the lake and...

We stayed there in 2001 in late September and enjoyed it very much, especially because of the location right on the town square but also right on the waterfront. Our room had a huge terrace facing the lake and island. The hotel is family run and the staff is very friendly. Downsides might include the lack of airconditioning, some quirky... More
