We stayed for one night and found the staff at this hotel to be very helpful, friendly and informative. Our room was fine, the breakfast very good by Italian standards, and the location excellent for the port and the old city centre.

Rooms are nothing special, but the location of the hotel is great. They also have safe car park just some hundreds of meter from the hotel. Very friendly staff and great breakfast. Also pool and gym are very good. Quite pricey though, but I think all hotels are in this area.

Every now and again you come across a hidden gem. This is a small family owned and run hotel who do everything they can to ensure you have a great stay. Nothing was too much trouble. We left our passports and they arrived with them at the train station. Marco & Luigi and family thank you

In Lavagna we decided to stay in hotel Ancora Riviera. It is a small hotel close to the harbor and beaches. The rooms are sort of clean and the bathroom is small. The family room is just a double with extra beds, so no room to move around or to put away your luggage. The family room is on the... More
