Having booked a room with a lake view and balcony, we were informed upon arrival that the room was unavailable due to a plumbing issue...We were given another room directly above with a view but no balcony. This information proved to be untrue as we soon saw guests sitting on the balcony of 'our' room below ! They had clearly... More

We stayed for the first time in this Hotel and we shall certainly go back when we visit Verbania the next time. Recently refurbished, very efficiently managed in a absolutely central location, it is no doubt the best Hotel in Verbania. The avenue between the hotel and the lake is obviously full of life and therefore very noisy, but the... More

We had a room with a view of the lake with excellent beds. Breakfast was very good with a great variety and fresh fruit and orange juice. It... More

I highly recommend Ancora Hotel in Verbania. Great position facing the beautiful Lago Maggiore. I had a room with a view of the lake. Breakfast was very good with a nice variety. It is walkable to the lake ferry for sightseeing.

Centrally located hotel with friendly staff. Parking facilities are nearby the ferry station at special hotel rate or (covered) in a reserved area (you might want to reserve in advance). Rooms are ok and offer good comfort and quality and - according to the category chosen - a great view on the Lake Maggiore. The breakfast buffet surprises with a... More

Staff handled any matter with smile, courtesy and efficiency from reservation, accommodation, check-in/out to special requests. Ideally located in Intra (Verbania) the place invites you to stroll though the small cobbled streets starting just behind the hotel. Room 12 (junior suite for 2 adults and 1 child (extendable sofa)) - great sleeping quality, plenty of space in the room (30-35... More

A good hotel with everything a traveller would need. Rooms kept spotless, breakfast Continental and filling. Do not expect hot bacon and scrambled egg, make do with warm Instead. Receptionists very helpful. Ideally placed if using the port opposite. This is a city hotel and used for travellers going elsewhere. Not the best place for holidaymakers. Public cycles only can...

Intra is very peaceful place to stay in Lago Maggiore ,and excellent base to tour the attraction around the lake. From Intra there is a ferry that cross to Laveno in the east side of the lake. The Ancora Hotel located in the central point of the city, 20 m from Plaza Ranzoni, 100 m from the ferry with a... More
