Lovely Hotel in a gorgeous setting downtown Ancona on the water. Stayed here on a wine trip- staff was amazing! Service was prompt and friendly. Rooms lovely, bed comfortable, great ocean views, beautiful modern, re-done bathrooms.

The Grand Palace Hotel was a pleasure to stay in. William, the manager, is incredibly helpful and kind. Myself and my partner have never been looked after better in a hotel. The rooms are clean with a view of the harbour. There is a plentiful and yummy choice for breakfast, I would definitely return! Harriet & Charlie

The hotel is located in the old town but very close the the shops with any amount of restaurants nearby. The building is very old with a wonderful lounge, don't know if they provide cups of tea as there is no restaurant but the breakfast room on the top floor has large windows with a fantastic view of the port...

The old palace, despite a little and discret entrance, is very well located in Ancona as it is in front of the port, down the pedestrian streets and 3 min from the archeological center (with the archeologic museum - accessible by a free public lift around the buiding). The restaurant is closed but the breakfast is served at the top... More

Grand Hotels sometimes are linked to a past that does not necessarily means left behind... The feeling is that the time has stopped within these walls. A little bit of touch ups might help, especially with the price per room. Amenities in the rooms should be improved for a 4 stars Hotel. Overall a professional Team around, helpful and efficient.

Good location by the sea. Walking distance down to the citycenter - where you can find many restaurants. (Many were closed during our stay in august due to vacation). A nice room and hotel, okey beds. We had a doubleroom, no balcony. The room laid towards a somewhat bigger road - nothing that disturbed us during our stay. Okey breakfast... More

i am staying at the Grand Hotel Palace as i write. I am here in Ancona for a short business trip and a lone female traveller. The hotel is an absolute gem, elegant and classical. The gentlemen who staff the reception desk are true gentlemen, kind and gracious, welcoming but in a quiet unassuming (not pushy) way, nothing is too... More
