Lovely hotel, has one of the best views in Positano! The room was spacious and stylish. Great bathroom! We loved the breakfast and the dinner at the restaurant. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

This is an awesome boutique-style hotel. Rooms are clean and spacious, service is excellent and the location is PERFECT. Our room was #206 which was the best room offered with massive Terrace and Hot tub. Simply stunning. The beach is an 8 minute walk down the steps. Restaurants are plentiful. Plus, there is a NEW restaurant that has been added... More

Given that Positano is not a good place for cars, we chose this hotel for its on-site parking (at the time of booking). Even Google street view showed cars parked on-site. When we arrived, we were advised that the car was to be parked off site (no mention of extra charges for this) as the former car park is now... More

Room 212 has a wonderful view, a great patio and was perfect for the two of us. Margarita is a superior front desk/concierge. The entire staff is capable and friendly. An excellent breakfast is included in the beautiful outdoor (covered) restaurant.

We stayed in Positano for two nights and just wanted a place to stay as we knew we wouldn't be staying in the hotel much. The hotel itself was pretty cool and nice. Our room was nice except for the fact that we had twin beds (it was our honeymoon). We had a nice balcony with a beautiful view. The... More

This is a beautiful hotel, the staff are excellent and very friendly. It is a beautiful location and the view from the hotel is stunning! It's a short walk to the beach and has organised chairs on the beach for the guests. There is also free wifi available.

A two-night stay probably wasn't long enough for our liking, but it was definitely long enough to know that we'd made a good decision in booking L'Ancora. The rooms are extremely comfortable, the hotel staff are brilliantly helpful - especially the ever-enthusiastic Margherita - and the location (just a short walk up from the beach) is ideal. The only slight... More

We had dinner here last night and the food, service and view were first rate. Highly recommended. I recommend booking early as the place fills up and getting a table with the direct (and possibly best) view of Positano is worth it. The fish is freshly caught that day and excellent. The service is superb.

This place has a great view but the food isn't good at all. It was actually the worst food that I had on my two-week stay in Europe. I told them I was unhappy with my meal and they made no concessions to see that I left happy. It's overpriced and a place that locals never eat at. The view... More
