After staying here and seeing the quality and location of some of the other (more expensive) hotels we looked at in Positano, we couldn't be happier. Hotel Ancora was perfect, it's a little bit of a walk up the hill from the ferry dock, but well worth it for the amazing views from the room and balcony. The rooms are... More

Ahh...Positano. Not our first choice of hotels initially but the delightful staff & charming hotel absolutely won us over. Location fantastic ( although a slight walk uphill), views awesome, food great, staff (especially Margherita on Front Desk) amazing. Would return to this hotel for another stay without doubt.

Highly recommend the Ancora Hotel in Positano, amazing views, 25 steps down to the main beach, fabulous resturants nearby. This was our 1st visit to the Amalfi Coast and this hotel made the whole experience everything we would have hoped for. Great staff, helpful, warm and friendly.

On first impressions the tripadvisor pictures and hotel pictures don't really do the place justice. We stayed here for 3 nights and our room was wonderful, spectacular view and location was really good as we didn't have to walk too far from the ferry. Only negative is the staff at breakfast weren't the most attentive which doesn't really match the... More

My husband and I can't say enough about this wonderful hotel. We were always greeted with smiles from the courteous and informative staff at the concierge desk (particularly Margherita) as well as the lovely housekeeping staff. All of our private transfers were arranged through the hotel and were punctual and impeccable. The included breakfast has a wonderful variety of hot... More

I have always wanted to visit Positano. It lived up to expectation. We booked here 6months early (need to do that for a room in high season) and in an expensive town, we felt it was good value for money. Right next door to the number 1 hotel (Le Sirenuse) at a fraction of the cost. It also meant we... More

Overpriced saying it mildly If you like strawberries with your muscles then this is the place for you. If you ask for blue fillet steak and get it medium and the arrogant owner argues with you then this is the place for you. If you want to pay 4 times over the odds for terrible food, yes this is the... More

We dined at the restaurant L'Ancora of this hotel. The view was fantastic and the food was nice though abit pricey. We ordered the seafood risotto and grilled fish with lemon dressing. Both were great!! But the fish was served half portion and some parts of the skin came with scales. The risotto cost €22 and half fish cost €22.... More
