La Bussola is family-run hotel in a prime position, within easy (downhill all the way!) walking distance of the centre of Orta San Guilia. The owners obviously take great pride in the hotel and are extremely helpful and friendly. We stayed in a standard room on the first floor (No. 118) which had French doors leading on to a private...

I have been to Orta San Giulio lots of times and always wanted to stay at La Bussola. Why? Because it's at the entrance of the old town, it's a great stroll into town at any time of the day. The swimming pool is excellent, the views from the restaurant are breathtaking. Staff is very pleasant, rooms are fine.

This a chalet style building located on the hill leading down to Orta S.G town. The area is almost surreally pretty, and the views of it all are unbeatable from this hotel (make sure you get a lake/island view room though, as a few aren't. The breakfast terrace is gorgeous, and the buffet pretty good too. The pool is lovely,... More

We booked a suite on the third floor and our balcony looked right over the lake and island. It was very beautiful. The room itself was large with a good bathroom including spa bath. The room was a little on the dark side and did get a bit hot at night being under the eaves in the attic. Breakfast is... More

Orta is somewhere we visit regularly and if we can we plan our touring holidays to have a few days relaxation here. On the last four visits we have stayed at the Bussola. This year we were a little earlier than usual and the whole of Orta still seemed to be getting itself ready for the summer season. Apparently they... More

This is a hotel to be recommended if you like to visit the Town of Orta San Guilio. Ask for a room with lake view. Parking is availlable and we have choosen to have dinner at the restaurant of the hotel, which was not a too bad decision. Although we stayed only one night, one can imaginge to spend a... More
