We went on a honeymoon to Italy. We spent 3 days in Rome prior to going to Positano. Rome was hectic and when we got to Ancora it was a huge relief. The hotel was beautiful. We asked for champagne to be in our room when arriving, and it was provided. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room... More

This hotel was a perfect location in a beautiful city. Close to shopping and good restaurants. A great view from our balcony. Not a bad walk to the beach but a lot of steps to get there, which is true of most hotels in this city. I enjoyed the view much better than if we had stayed closer to the... More

Nice hotel with an air conditioning problem. Nicely located and beautiful rooms. The view is spectacular and the continental breakfast is so so. Hard to find when you go for the first time, no sign of it in the front. The city is amazing and the little trattorias are good. There is a gourmet restaurant kind of expensive

We had been undecided about where to stay on the Amalfi coast . We are very happy that we choose to stay here. The location was perfect for us, an easy walk to plenty of great restaurants, shopping, bus stop (we had our own car, parking is available). Staff were pleasant and helpful. Our room was spacious (big bathroom with... More

We have just returned from a 4 night stay in this fantastic hotel. The location is spot on for me, just away from the main centre so that you aren't bothered by noise or other goings on but less than a 5 minute stroll to the restaurants etc. Room was spotless with a great balcony and sea view, breakfast was...

Our room was huge, with a stunning view of the sea from our spacious balcony that was large enough for two cushioned sun chairs, a table, and two additional chairs. The spacious bathroom included a wonderful Jacuzzi, and a member of the staff was gracious enough to show me how to operate it and not make fun of me. We... More

I had to choose between two hotels on the top of the hill vs. Hotel Ancora, which is close to the bottom of the hill. My driver recommended this and I am so thankful he did. Our room is large with plenty of closet space for long stay. There is a large sitting room with a desk and a pull... More

Hotel Ancora is a beautiful hotel with the same views as Hotel Le Sirenuse, but at a quarter of the price. The staff is amazing, the rooms are very clean, and our room had a large terrace with an amazing view of the Mediterranean. We would love to stay here again.

L'Ancora has great service, great staff, an amazing view of the water, and a delicious breakfast served on your veranda every morning. Since it's open Nov - Dec, it's a real gem that we found and wound up staying three nights instead of two, because we loved it so much!
