The reception was very kind and solicit. The views are great and the interior design has always been interesting and innovative. Breakfast is OK. The beds were generous and with soft bedlinen. We have been seven years ago and wanted to experience it now with the children There are, though, now serious signs of decline and lack of attention: only half of the illumination works, the curtains easily fall down and one of the floor lamps was so broken (see picture) that it would have ended our holiday in hospital if one of the children would have barefoot stepped into it. These signs of decline irradiate everywhere: in the attitude of the owner, in the quality of the coffee (where you are told that more than one Espresso or Capuccino are to be paid apart) and of the breakfast: seven years ago it was a marvel; now it was just normal. I don't think we'll repeat again.

This hotel was the first of three we were to stay in on a walking holiday in the area. The hotel is very well located being proximate to the main square in Orta and thus close to all the 'action'. The downside is that it is so close to the square and the noise from the restaurants and bars goes on until the wee small hours and will undoubtedly restrict your ability to get some sleep. At dawn you are likely to be greeted by the noise of the refuse collectors tipping the previous day's bottles into the dust-cart! Our room was 'tired' and in need of some refurbishment. That said, ignoring the short-comings, we were comfortable and the breakfasts were good.

Unusual hotel in cost Orta. Splendid location on the square and by the boat to Isola D’Orta. The attic suite is spectacular with its view and double showers, and the personnel will s friendly. Parking is 200m away, north of the hotel, and expensive as we paid 20 euros for an overnight parking

We reserved a room on booking.com, the price was quite high but considering the central position it seemed good. the staff was always kind and the room was clean. However for the price we payed we expected a richer and better displayed breakfast and more toilet equipment. Only soap bars were available. The reception is not located in the main building so when the breakfast is over nobody is available nearby. We had a good experience but the rooms are too expensive for the service provided.

Only plus is buffet breakfast very generous. Rooms are not trendy, quirky - just scruffy, poorly maintained and badly designed with odds and sods of furniture which looks like it was purchased second hand. Peeling paintwork, rusty taps, shower and radiator. Wonky inadequate shelves, futon beds, no wardrobes, no desk, no mirror, inadequate lighting. That's before you even mention the stupid shower in middle of bedroom - not naughty, or sexy, floods everywhere. Lousy wi fi in reception. No wi fi in rooms. No communal area, no reception staff. Just notice with phone number. Booked for us by inn travel. Poor. Just a room to sleep in if you can due to noisy, adjacent bar which stays open late, or close windows and put up with rattly air con

Stayed as a couple on an Inntravel 3 centre holiday. The location of this hotel right on the main Piazza is spot on and walking distance from all facilities with a close view of the lake front. On the downside the room was poorly lit and we only thought to move the bedside lights around for better lighting when we were packing to leave. The room was big (mostly in darkness) accommodating 2 double beds so space to spread out. Unless you are 6ft+ tall you will need a step stool to see yourself in the bathroom mirror. Switching of the electrics in the room is a mystery with a few switches appearing to do nothing and the shower light would sometimes just not switch off at all??? Shower in the room not a problem and it had a linear rain shower head and space to fit 4 people if you like that sort of thing. There's a bar just outside the hotel where one of you can have a drink if you don't want to admire each other's ablutions. Air con worked OK and we needed it. Breakfast choice good with some very fresh fish included each day. No reception staff, with a keypad to let yourself in, so nobody to ask for information. Of the hotels close to all the action and the lake front this is on value for money probably still the best choice and I guess the owners know it hence no improvements on the above.

The staff at the hotel were consistently good and there's no doubt about the hotel's location - right on San Giulio's main piazza and right next to Lake Orta. Superb. There's a lot to like about Aracoeli, too. The breakfasts are great: a huge buffet of high-quality sweet and savoury foods to eat while you're sitting out in the piazza watching everyone start their day. The beds are comfortable and the rooms have a cool, slightly quirky style that's not too overbearing. The shower was powerful and a bit different - in the middle of the room. That's all good, but there were too many little faults and issues (in my opinion) for a hotel that costs £120+ per night. The floor in our room was painted concrete that proved incredibly slippery, and the shower glass wasn't flush to the rest of the shower, so water leaked onto the floor - which made it even worse. The shower drainage was inconsistent, the shower light stopped working after a day, and the bathroom extractor fan barely worked at all. Lighting in the rest of the room is sparse and the light in the floor outside the room was cracked and sometimes didn't work. Our tea/coffee tray didn't have any cutlery. The main door into the room has a frosted window, but there's a gap around the outside that means people can see in - we hung clothes up to block the view. There's no full-length mirror and no actual wardrobe, just a rail that you can hang clothes on and surround with a curtain. There's no in-room wifi, either - just on the ground floor. None of these are dealbreakers and aren't things that I've even bring up in most places - either too inconsequential or stuff that wouldn't be fixed during our stay's time frame. However, I think they're worth mentioning in a review.

We stayed in Orta for my stepson's wedding and chose the Aracoeli. The hotel is based right in the main square, which has a lovely view but can be slightly noisy some mornings with rubbish collection and nearby restaurants serting up. The rooms are large and quirky ours had shower in the room which did tend to flood though. Breakfast is amazing, huge buffet of all things imaginable which can be taken outside as you watch the world go by. Fridge in room is stocked with water and juice and selection of pastries which are free and topped up daily. Wifi is also free and fast in the lobby. Hotel only has 7 rooms so lovely and small. Lovely, clean central hotel for a stay in Orta

The hotel was situated in the square which was for pedestrians and parking was a short walk away. You can get permission to unload luggage from local police. The rooms were very large with a bathroom and walk-in shower. Bed was a bit uncomfortable but stay was ok. Breakfast was fine. Plenty to choose from and very friendly staff. Hotel had a lift. Plenty of restaurants in the square and opportunity to take boat trip across the lake.

We stayed here for three nights as part of our honeymoon in August. We parked at the top of the hill (in what turned out to be next to the hotel car park!) and walked our way into town. The map we were sent on booking showed us the way and we were met by friendly members of staff who checked us in. The room certainly is quirky, with the shower in the middle of the bedroom, but the bed was very comfy and there was a fridge with drinks to cool off. The room was air conditioned too. The location of this hotel is its real selling point, just above the main piazza with short walks to all restaurants and bars. The breakfast was lovely and there was lots of choice in a continental style. The hotel is not luxurious by any means but has a great location and I would certainly recommend to other couples.
