8/10 Very good

Good Value for your money.
Bed was great. Very quiet in the late evening. Overall clean but miss the details. Bathroom needs a little work with wall rot where the shower leaks out onto the bathroom floor. Overall good value for the money. Free parking .8 miles away do to pedestrian only town.

8/10 Very good

Basic but great stay in a beautiful location.
Make sure you check how to find the parking before arriving as our sat nav took us down cobbled hills that only the locals use! Found the office for the various rooms used by Hotel Piccolo Olina and then went back to main paid car park which was closer than the free hotel one at top of hill. Shown to our room by very helpful young Italian and despite the downpour of rain enjoyed every minute of our stay! Room was rather basic with somewhat safari feel but real bonus was window with view of the lake, do ask for this on booking. Breakfast and wifi was in a restaurant round the corner but it was the best breakfast we had on our trip across Italy with fresh slices of pineapple and melon making it extra special. Lake Orta will not disappoint and it is a truly beautiful location. Wish we had had longer to explore.

Bad sofa bed...great breakfast.
The sofa bed was horrible...the bed frame was so bad we slept with the mattress on the floor...the mattress was flimsy. There is no A/C or fans so beware in the summer that the room does not cool off until after midnight. Also, there are mosquitoes if you leave the windows open. The best part was a great breakfast with a hardworking staff.

good basic accommodation
i chose this hotel due to its location and price. I was staying for one night and needed something quick and simple. The hotel was hard to find - I was driving, not being familiar with the area it would have been useful to know it was a pedestrianised area. The office is in a separate building to the rooms. The rooms are apartments in an apartment building. Rooms basic but clean. No AC just a fan. Breakfast is in a different hotel but was basic. This was good value for money but below the standard I'm used to.

10/10 Exceptional

Amazing room with a view
I understand there are several rooms in various locations under this hotel and we were part of a wedding party with several staying at this hotel. I understand some rooms were not great but ours was fabulous. We had a very large room overlooking the main piazza and the lake. It was stunning. Breakfast in a nearby restaurant in the same square was fantastic too. We had a wonderful stay.

Good not great
Good for the price.But be careful, as well as the main building - which looks nice- there are further rooms in an annexe which are a bit hit and miss.And you don't check in at the hotel but an office next to their restaurant 100 yds away - confusing if you arrive late! Initially put in an anexe room - dark and pokey, small bathroom, not very nice. Complained and staff very very helpful, moved to a nice tidy bright room. Breakfast taken at a cafe in the square - lovley in the summer and staff very nice.

4/10 Fair

Careful lots of misrepresentation
"Free" parking is totally unusable at top of a mountain a mile away and no parking anywhere near hotel so forget about getting luggage to the rooms. They tried to put us in an awful dark, damp room and we had to argue to get a decent room with a window. This hotel was grossly misrepresented on Expedia and very overpriced, although town is cute, lake is nice and breakfast (in another hotel) was good. Be careful with this place. Expedia customers are low priority for this hotel. We needed to park (10 Euros/day) at a private garage and drag our bages 500 meters down steep cobblestone paths or steps, then up rwo flights of stairs.

Beautiful location, bed hard as a plank
Very friendly and helpful staff who helped to explain the layout of the hotel, the annex and the parking. It's not simple! The parking is either a 15-20 minute walk away from the hotel, or a 5 minute walk to the multi-storey carpark for 10Euros overnight. Access by vehicle is difficult everywhere in this village, but that is the charm of the place. The reception and main part of the hotel is just opposite the restaurant of the same name. Our room in the annex, about 100m away was very plain, dark and small. The bed was as hard as a plank. Not as nice as expected. However it was nice to be in the centre of the village and be able to walk around at night and eat out without having to drive anywhere afterwards. A good breakfast in the morning took place at another location on the main square. Probably the best part of the stay. In summary nice staff, but rooms not good enough to want to go back.
