My sister and I spent a few days here during the summer. We did a lot of research in trying to find a hotel because we didn't want to have to walk up and down hundreds of steps to/from the hotel so this was perfect. It was a short walk to the beach and to the restaurants and stores. Our... More

So in love with this quaint 18 room hotel overlooking the ocean in Positano. From the front desk personnel, to the rooms, to the view, to the balcony to the gentleman that made our coffee each morning I can not say enough...LOVED this place!

Right next door to the famed Le Sirenuse in Positano, Hotel Ancora has the same views without the pretentious staff for one third the price. My husband & I stayed in a large room with a lovely bath and a large balcony with breathtaking views of the Tyrrhenian Sea. The staff was warm and friendly, especially Anna, and eager to... More

Spent 4 nights here and loved the views, the helpful staff (especially Domenico), and the location. They helped arrange transportation to and from Naples train station. Helped with bus schedules from town to town. Offered breakfast. Was really a great choice and i know this because my wife wanted to cry when it was time to leave.

We stayed for 3 nights on our first visit to Positano and the Amalfi Coast and absolutely loved it. The hotel was very clean, comfortable and well presented. I would have been happy to sit on the balcony for three days and look at the views!! Breakfast was great, with a large selection of foods, and the staff were more... More

Beautiful views and white crisp interior is the way to describe Hotel Ancora in Positano, Italy! A warm and friendly environment with a perfect location. Easy access to shops and the heart of Positano down to the beach. Nestled into the steep hillside and right next to other hotels, shops and cafe's. Hotel staff very friendly and accommodating, breakfast tasty... More
