Taxi from Ancona airport to the hotel was 45 euro. I arrived late on a Sunday night and was welcomed warmly and efficiently. Room was very clean a comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with a lovely view out over the port. Position was superb for exploring the old town by foot, with its numerous restaurants and bars, or walk along the... More

We stayed at this wonderful little hotel the night before catching ferry to Croatia. Incredibly friendly staff upon arrival, and could not have been more helpful with details the next day to help us do ticketing and check in for ferry, which had moved its office and would have been hard to find. The breakfast room had the most amazing... More

Though many people who had came by ferry to Ancona would choose to by pass it, we are glad we did not. Coming from Split, Croatia, on an overnight ferry (caught some sleep in a private cabin, but really tiny spaces!), the hotel was merely 1 minutes walk through an old Gate (written ''to Centro Storico'') - very easy indeed....

It's on the sea front adjacent to the port. The public areas are still very grand but our room, with a view of the port, was very tired. Comfy bed for a change and the bathroom had handsome tiles and chrome fittings. We loved watching the big liners depart the port one by one as night fell. We watched the... More

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.
