The hotel is very comfortable, good beds, nice staff and great breakfast. We have a room with a balcony. Downside is you have to doors and windows closed at night with aircon on at night as noisy road below balcony. Great for wandering about and using the boats for exploring the islands in the lake

I visit this Hotel for a nice weekend. Honestly i recommend it for everyone. The room was clean, the staff was polite, the breakfast was typical a italian style and almost in my opinion the espresso was great. The hotel is next to the Lago Maggiore, to different coffees and shopping places. Overall i will be there again in september.... More

Great location, we had a third floor room with small balcony overlooking the lake, great for pre dinner drink and watching the ferries arriving and departing. Room facilities are good, decor lovely, boutique hotel feel, breakfast is awesome, so much choice, staff are very helpful. Right in the middle of town surrounded by many restaurants and bars.

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.

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
