“Very good, with reservations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

This is an older hotel, and much refurbishment is needed. Nevertheless, the food in the restaurant was very good as was the service. By some miracle we wound up with a suite, so there was plenty of space. Some complaInts: no air conditioning, not enough light to read by, not enough places to sit comfortably. We asked for a wake-up call but never got it.

An older Hotel, with some charm.
This hotel could do with refurbishment.
Excellent service in the hotel and Restaurant.
Our room was quite small.
Very comfortable however.
Good location in the Dolomites.
The town has a real Swiss feel.

We just stayed one night at the Hotel Ancora in Cortina d'Ampezzo and it was good. The staff and the management certainly get good marks for their effort and their service. That said the place is need of some general sprucing up. A coat of paint both inside and out along with maybe some new bed linens could really boost the overall impression of a hotel with a fantastic location in the center of this south Tyrolian region located in the heart of the aw inspiring Dolomite mountains. We've stayed in many old inns across the US and a number of old hotels in Europe. Each has its own character and look and the fact that they are very old doesn't get in the way of being outstanding places of lodging. The Ancora could be in that class with a little bit of old fashioned TLC. Their restaurant was very good and the wait staff very attentive. We get it. Cortina is loaded with skiers in the winter and hikers/bikers in the summer. Rustic charm is their thing and I'm sure they find the Ancora a very respectable spot. Frankly we see it as having huge potential as well, but a little paint and new bed clothes could give the Ancora a chance to be the premier lodging spot in the heart of this posh little town where the beautiful people come to ski.

Beautiful hotel in the Dolomites. Common rooms were exceptional. Food was very good, breakfast spread was also very good. Room was small, but nice bathroom. We had a view of a wall, so make sure you ask for a view when you reserve. Good location. Go down the hill to dept store for snacks and water. Bike paths are fantastastic, and not very difficult.

The Hotel Ancora is in a perfect location - in the center of town and walking distance to everything. Gorgeous views in every direction you look. The rooms were small and quaint, but very clean. Bathrooms were larger than your typical European bathroom. We were only here for two nights, but I would be comfortable staying here if I ever return to Cortina!

We stayed here for two nights during a tour of Northern Italy. The rooms were cozy and comfortable. Views from rooms are breathtaking! Front desk was accommodating with requests. We had dinner in the hotel on the first night and the food and presentation was top notch! The waiters were extremely pleasant! Fabulous location!!

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.
