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

I stayed here with my son in May 2014 for one night prior to sailing on the MSC Armonia. We arrived late about 11pm after a Ryanair flight from Stansted to Ancona. Taxi fare from Ancona airport to hotel was 45 euros. No bus available that time of night. We had requested a room with two beds and the first... More

Four stars? Maybe in 1960, but from that year they did not change anything. Location is good, but choose room on the south, north is like sleeping in engine room of the ships in port. Better to skip this place, rooms and beds are too small, everything is old and overused, breakfast is limited to few sweet bakery products.

I have been going to this hotel for many years because I work with a company in Ancona and it's covenient. It is a shabby hotel with run-down rooms and a strange old-fashioned feel. Last time I was there I had an awful experience with some dirty underwear that had been left in my wardrobe but I must say the... More

I love this little hotel! The lift is so small I could only just fit myself, my suitcase and my travel companion in it! All the staff were super friendly, the view is lovely out onto the sea and the breakfast is just the best! I stayed here in 2011 on a business trip and enjoyed every minute. I shall... More

I spent one night in Ancona in this hotel for business. PROS: I must say that the staff is nice and helpful; the location is convenient, close to city centre and the harbour. The breakfast room is very pleasantly located at the 5th floor, with a beautiful view. CONS: the hotel itself is NOT nice. Frankly speaking, it cannot be... More

We spent a couple of nights in this hotel while on business in Ancona. The good things are location, heating, parking and a fantastic breakfast each morning. To reach the hotel you must carry your own luggage up marble stairs. There is no railing at all. It is not wheelchair accessible nor is it an inviting place for families. A... More

Stayed overnight prior to catching ferry from Italy to Croatia. What a lovely stay. Given the reasonable rate, we did not expect such comfort and style. The hotel has high ceilings and large rooms and is decorated in an ornate Italian style. Sure it is an older style hotel, but that's what we enjoy, clean, comfortable, with personality and style...
