Away from the port-side bustle, Hotel Ortensia is situated in Le Forna, in the relaxing heart of Ponza. Getting to the hotel means either catching a bus (10-15 mins from the port in Ponza) or a taxi (approx 15 euros). Bus stop is next to the hotel and they run every 20 mins until 2/3am in summer. Le Forna has... More

Hotel Ortensia is located in the quietest part of the island, although the busiest area of the port is easily reached with a small bus. Facing the sea, the "piscine naturali" (natural pools) nearby are a great spot for swimming and relaxing. A family run hotel, they will make you feel at home only with a 5-star level cuisine!!

From the booking to final checkout everything was so simple and organized. Upon booking our reservation on the internet we received a phone call shortly... More

We stayed at Hotel Ortensia on the first 3 nights of our honeymoon. It was our first time in Ponza, and my wife's first time in Italy. We are so happy we chose this hotel. We got here after about 24 hours straight of traveling- ATL > JFK > FCO > Formia > Ponza- and we really needed some comfort.... More

Really enjoyed unwinding at the Hotel Ortensia in La Forna, Ponza. Rooms were clean and cool. Showers on the small side and it took me 4 days to figure out how to flush the toilet. Find the taxi stand down on the wharf and take a taxi to the Hotel. It will cost your about 20 euro. La Forna is... More
