we found ourselves with an extra day in Ancona without any accommodation booked. Found this hotel on last minute bookings had no real idea what it was going to be like so thought we would give it a try. Initially it was like being a faulty towers episode with a receptionist that spoke no English, a hotel room that had... More

The hotel is just average. Restaurant was closed and was told would only re-open in summer. As we were there for a conference, breakfast and lunch were served. The rooms were OK, quite big, but looks tired, and needs refurbishment. The balcony was not clean, with wet dead leaves unswept. It is definitely not very convenient if you have large... More

This is a good hotel, if you have no problems with thin walls (yes, you can hear what your neighbours talk and what they watch on TV) and rather avarage standard (beds, breakfast. bathroom, etc.). We were here for a conference and everyone was wondering how this can be a 4 star hotel (3 at the most). Location is good... More

this hotel well deserves its 4 stars. beautiful location in the heart of Portonovo bay, a hidden treasure in Le Marche. Perfect accomodation for those who love a peaceful, relaxing place on the sea. Don't expect much nightlife, but if a charming seaside landscape is what you are looking for, this is the right place. Excellent and polite service, great... More

Perfect hotel service -we had half board (mezza pensione) and every night excellent diner at the Hotel Forte Napoleonico which has the same owner - it's 300 meter walk from the Exelsior La Fonte Hotel but the walk is more than worth to be done !!! Excellent breakfast with fresh coffee served (no vending !!!) Altough price class is somewhat... More

The hotel is in an excellent position in the centre of the Riviera Del Conero. Rooms are clean and comfortable with the family rooms being of a nice size, however rooms witout balconies are small and face staight onto the side of the mountain making them dull and clostraphobic. The staff are always attentive and whilst breakfast is just a... More

Because the Greek ferries were on strike again, we found ourselves stranded in Ancona for two days. Following the advice of a very helpful young man at the ANEK booking office we drove out to Portonovo and stumbled across the Excelsior Hotel La Fonte. This proved to be a fortunate find as the setting and location is wonderful. Helpful staff... More

Been in La Fonte in July 2009 for three nights for a Wedding. The reception was held at the more prestigious Fortino Napoleonico, which is 200 yards away. For this reason we chose the Hotel La Fonte and we were satisfied. The beatiful beach of Portonovo ia also very close so you can walk to the beach avoiding to use... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in July. The hotel is small, but the rooms are clean and comfortable with a nice balcony. However, the bathroom was not brilliant, the shower tended to flood the bathroom floor. When we first arrived at the pool we thought it was nice and shaded with trees and a small bar. However, by the... More
