You get jaded with certain hotels and never go back but L'Ancora is the exception. The pictures attached tell the story. Very happy with all the family who owns the hotel and what they offer. Use of the sister hotels pool is a highlight and never should they ever think of changing that. Breakfast is superb which ranks high in... More

Contacted hotel in February thru their web site, requesting a 2 night stay in July. I received an email reply, indicating that they did not have availability for one of the dates I requested. I replied that unfortunately the alternate date would not work with our schedule. I returned home from a two week trip Europe, to find a letter... More

The hotel Ancona was just what we wanted. A very spacious room a fabulous view of the beautiful Positano town and beach and parking at no extra cost. It is near the restaurants, bars and shops but nice and quiet for a good nights sleep. The large balcony had sun beds as well as chairs and a table. The bathroom... More

We reserved the Family Junior Suite for four days at the beginning of September, and were treated to stunning views all day and wonderful sunsets each night. The jacuzzi had its own little room off the terrace with a sliding glass door which was great in case of rain. The terrace was lovely, large enough for sunning on loungers on... More

We stayed here in June. Upon our arrival, we had a warm welcome from the receptionist: we looked like people family! The hotel is a little gem, no pool, but not so necessary because Positano has a really great beach! Our room (category classic) was lovely, overlooking the sea, with sun beds and impeccable cleanliness.. The front desk staff suggested... More

Fantastic location & just a short walk from all the restaurants & shops. Staff were really friendly & helpful. Parking on site. Nice breakfast - delicious fresh fruit salad. Good AC & shower but the hair dryer was rubbish & took ages to dry my hair - I know this is a first world problem but I was wasting valuable... More

I chose this hotel based upon the mostly excellent reviews on tripadvisor along with the sharing of facilities that it touts with it's sister hotel, covo dei saraceni. I contacted the hotel a number of times by email before arriving asking (i) was a suite available (No), and (ii) noting it was our anniversary so it would be a special... More

Right next door to Le Sireneuse at a fraction of the price. The staff (especially Eleonora and Vittiolo) were tremendous to us. L'Ancora is a boutique hotel with EXCEPTIONAL views. The breakfast patio is a lovely way to start your day with a large selection of continental breakfast items. The hotel is in the heart of Positano....all just a short... More
