The apartment was clean and spacious, if blandly furnished, and was in walking distance to everything. The view from the top apartment, where we stayed, was fantastic. But the positives end here. We arrived at 5pm to check in and the room was at least 95 degrees F, with no air conditioning and no window-opening relieved the heat. They told us that it was unusually hot but it is June, and given global warming perhaps it's time to invest in air conditioning or at least a few powerful fans. Sleeping was miserable, also given the fact that the cover on the bed was only a synthetic duvet. The wifi is not in the room but downstairs in the lobby of the building. The shower was an ancient relic which sprayed me directly when I turned it on and got water all over the floor, and the shower head was all together dysfunctional and unusable. There are two bathrooms so we confined ourselves to using the bathtub with hand sprayer. To top it off, the electricity went out for three hours during the hottest part of the day! This was not their fault, but still made it near-impossible to enjoy our room at all during midday. They are charging 150€ for this!
Orta is beautiful, but it does feel a bit run down and even though I saw many tourists, this all indicates to me that there is a lower standard for hotels. I'd say stay at a nicer place like Al Dom, which looks lovely and seems to provide the right standard for the price.
