Like another recent reviewer, L'Ancora was not my first choice of hotels in Positano but they won us over during our stay. It is next door to the higher-end Le Sirineuse and the location is fantastic. High enough up the hill to give great view from the rooms and restaurant, very close to the "main drag"/hill down to the beach... More

My husband and I loved this hotel. The ocean view from our beautiful room was amazing. The location of the hotel is great - just a 5/10 minute walk from the beach! We found the hotel staff to be friendly, pleasant and helpful. Breakfast is upstairs with a breathtaking view of the beach. We would most definitely stay here again.

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.
