“The jewel of Cortina d'Ampezzo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

The Hotel Ancora is situated in the central square of Cortina d'Ampezzo, a mountain town two hours north of Venice. Home of the 1956 Olympics, Cortina is a center for skiing and mountaineering.The Ancora is a family owned hotel that is quaint and friendly. It is rumored to have the best food in town. I have stayed there several times, and if better meals are served in Cortina, I don't know where to find them. There is great hiking out the front door of the hotel. Venice is around the corner. What could be better?

Room Tip: We like our room to face the central square. There is always a lot going on there.

Arrived form Canada for eight night stay Feb 21st 2014. Hotel is charming, very well located in the centre of town, clean and well maintained with top service. Restaurant is also excellent with a decent wine list. Good value overall and will definitely repeat!

Stayed one night in a Junior suite here and we really enjoyed it. Great location, fantastic view to the mountains and a small square, helpful and friendly staff and great breakfast. If you want to endulge yourself while in the Dolomites, this is a good place.

We stayed at this hotel together with our tour group. It is located in a small town up in the mountains. The rooms are old but cozy , the town may been small but it feels very good walking around. The food in the hotel's restaurant was one of the best I had during my trip in Italy. This is definity a place I will remember after I leave Italy. Even the food in the restaurants around were superb.

The Ancora is your choice in Cortina when you are looking for authentic old charm. It is a traditional hotel in chalet style, constructed in 1826, with handpainted decorations on walls, ceilings and furniture. The owner, Flavia, is allways present and ensures good (and warm) service. The hotel appears to have received a lot of awards, and the entire lobby is covered with frames certificates and pictures of the owners receiving them. The room we had was a junior suite on the top floor in front, with a private balcony with a great view of the church and mountains. Even though the age of the room shows, it is charming rather than dated. Bed and shower were good. The restaurant serves a good traditional menu - eating in the hotel rather than going out is a good option. The breakfast buffet is good, although a larger selection of bread would have been nice. One flip side to the old charm: if you need silence in your room, do not choose this hotel: walls and floors are very thin. And in our case the view of the church also came with being woken up at 7 each day by the church bells. So keep this in mind when making your choice.

Room Tip: If the idea of being woken up by church bells at 7 bothers you, ask for a room at the back of the ho...

The hotel is amazing in all aspects.
The style, hospitality, restaurant, furniture, as will as the location.
It is very antique hotel and I never saw such a hotel before.
Mrs. Filavia - the owner of the hotel -was really nice and generous.
I would advise all to visit this unique hotel in Cortina.

I had a unique vantage point in March of 2013. While staying at the hotel with friends and family, I spent more time at the hotel because I suffered an injury 2 weeks before the trip. As such, I was at the hotel for all but a few hours each day (during an entire week). The hotel and its staff are the best!! Anything I asked for they delivered. The food is fantastic, the atmosphere is great, and the staff is top notch.

I have skied in France, Austria and out West. From the perspective of the hotel and surrounding area, none of those compare to Hotel Ancora and Cortina. My family and friends that skied said the conditions and trails were awesome. I will be going back next year, and probably again and again for years to come.
