Lovely hotel. Great location in intra. Great breakfast. Super clean hotel. Rooms nice. Shower but small n awkward angle, so if ur a bit unstable under foot getting out and over stretching may be a problem. Not for me. But just an observation. Marissa on reception gets my vote. Very helpful. And friendly. But I don't have QR to scan... More

Lovely hotel very modern and easy access to the piazza, bars and restaurants. Friendly staff, Marissa was particularly excellent during our stay. Nice room very clean and stylish. Good breakfast and cappuccinos all freely flowing. Close to ferry and bus stops. I would definitely recommend this lovely hotel. Only improvement would be tea & coffee facilities in the room.

Really lovely place to stay. Modern room, well furnished in a quasi art deco style, spotlessly clean, glorious view of lake, friendly and helpful staff. Perfect for a stop over or a week long stay. We had a very happy time. The TV didn't work but they got it going immediately.

Ancora Hotel is one the waterfront near the ferry in Verbania. It is very near the old town as well as a nice walk along the waterfront. Near lots of nice restaurants and the hotel has several cards for discounts or free item. Our room was ultra modern with a balcony looking across the lake. Breakfast was very nice. Our... More

We travel between the UK and Greece twice a year and this hotel is becoming our 'go to' hotel of choice, plus Verbania is such a lovely town. We also have our 2 Scottish Terriers in tow and so need somewhere that accommodates dogs and is in a convenient location for car parking. The Ancora is only a few minutes... More

Went to Hotel Ancora in March 2015 for one night and it was one of the worst experiences of my life. We were traveling with my elderly parents. We got to rooms and they were very dated. Bathroom had painted floor with tons of skid marks on it. Very weird room that was not inviting or comfortable at all. At... More

We stayed here for only one night before a wedding. The hotel was fine, nothing particularly special. Our room was a bit dated with lots of useless "features," but nothing in particular to complain about. Check-in and check-out were easy, and the staff was very friendly in general. The continental breakfast was pretty standard for a European hotel and was... More

I stayed at Ancora hotel during June 2014 for about one week, it was very nice, all the staff their are very friendly make you feel as family. They speak English and French. The location of the hotel is fantastic, just in front of the jetty of yachts and boats where you can book a trip to all islands.

We visited Hotel Ancora for two nights at the end of October and enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel is in a great position and we had a wonderful view from our room. The hotel has been modernised inside and has lots of great touches. The bed was comfortable, although the pillows could have been better I thought. The... More

We stayed in the Hotel because of a wedding. The check-in was friendly but less informative. However nothing to complain about. The room itself was not worth the money. However this is Italy in general. Especially in the more touristic areas. You pay a high rate for an average service and average rooms. It was clean but old and some... More
