Reviewed August 5, 2012

Arrived at Ancona Rail Station at 11:30pm and missed ferries to Split. Needed to find a room for the night and take first ferry the next morning. Taxi driver standing at station entrance, pointed across the street and said "pick one." Fortuna's sign was the only one with a sign that had all lights working. (always a good indication that the management pays attetion to maintenance) Night manager was very accomodating. Price was right, room was clean. quiet and comfortable. Breakfast with plentiful and fresth. 1.20 euro ride on Bus #12 got us to the ferry first thing in the monring. What more could we ask for? Filled our needs and more.

Breakfast was very good that's about all i remember positive from this hotel, the room was very small and had loads of dust everywhere and for the price i expected better. Also i thought the area would be convienant opposite the central train station however it was quite a walk into the city and i think around the station is bad area as lots of scary looking people hanging around shops and outside hotel. The staff could not speak english and did not seem to try to be helpful.

(15-17 july 2012)
We arrived at the hotel around 16:00 and the surrounding area seemed already a bit run down...
The first surprise was to have only pay-parking nearby: one public, cheaper but fully occupied, and one private managed by extremely rude people. [2/5]

The check-in was quick and the staff was extremely professional and efficient in all circumstances, including giving me adequate directions for a place not available on GPS. [5/5]

The room would need to brush up a bit, but overall it was okay. Two points against: inadequate soundproofing (a noisy neighbor woke us around 2.30 in the morning and TV sounds spread from room to room) and insufficient window's darkening (was impossible to obtain total darkness) [3/5]

The bathroom had the defect of being blind and the shower was not adjustable. [2/5]

Bed was confortable, but composed by two single beds. [3/5]

Breakfast was very cheap and anonymous. [2/5]

All in all a good base for visiting Ancona at reasonable prices if you book without breakfast. [3/5]

Ok for a one night stopover in Ancona.

PROS:
- directly across from the train station. You can't miss it!
- breakfast was really good; lots of fresh fruit and variety of cereals, breads, etc.
- inexpensive.
- the bus to the ferry port is quick and conveniently located just across from the hotel. Get the number 12 bus, it just takes about 5 minutes. Buy a ticket from the lotto place before boarding.

CONS:
- reception were not polite at all. They answered our questions but were not enthusiastic.
- wifi was unbearably slow and unreliable. Seriously, don't advertise "free wifi throughout hotel" if it only works in the general area and those rooms lucky enough to be close to the router!
- really not in a nice part of town. There's a couple of restaurants nearby and some cheap clothes stores, but it's generally quite grimy and not somewhere to hang out. Get a late train if, if possible.

The receptionist was amazing and went out of her way to help us. It is a short bus ride from town and cheap parking can be jacked up right outside the hotel for €1.20 for 24hours. The rooms are dated and it had the worst shower ever! The double bed was infact two single beds pushed together.

this hotel was in an ideal location for the ferry port but not much to do in the area you need a car to get into the town although there were a couple of good places to eat close to the hotel .the hotel was clean and tidy but needed a bit of tlc in places there was no reasturant but the breakfast was very good ,parking was avilable outside the hotel but was limited would use this again if we needed an overnight stay before traveling to corfu on the ferry

We wil recommend this hotel- inexpensive,with a renovated modern bathroom, decent size room just opposite the train station. Receptionist speaks English, called the taxi for us to take us to the cruise port. (Very good buffet continental breakfast included.)

Room Tip: ask for a room on the upper floor near to the elevator especially if you have a heavy suitcase
