Very central and extremely well equipped. The kitchen and bathroom have all the utensils and machines you might need and probably more - but do look in the right place! The landlady is very efficient and helpful. There is a dining/living room with integrated kitchen and a separate sleeping room with attached bathroom. You will find everything to prepare your own meals (but eating out is really very cheap and good in Orta). If you didn't bring your own can use bed sheets and towels at no extra cost. On the lovely private terrace you can have your meals or enjoy a glass of wine. There are views of the lake both from the kitchen/main room and from the terrace, though not directly on the waterfront.
The location is at a stone's throw from the charming central square. That also means some bustle, especially from the restaurant next doors that plays a lot of music. However, nights were totally silent. We didn't mind the music - some blues, some jazz, some Italian, but it gets a little tiring. For WiFi you have to go to the central square (free by courtesy of the municipality). Note that cars don't enter the city, you have to carry your luggage a small distance but the landlady can arrange a garage nearby. Finally, there is no airco - although the apartment stays quite cool on really hot days in summer it might be warm.
