We stumbled across the Ancora and are glad we did. The location is perfect--built right into the old city wall and above the pedestrian only street Via Dante Aligheri. Our room was right above the upper terrace of the restaurant, but even on Saturday night the party sounds (which were quite pleasant, mostly) were over by 10 or so. The room was fine, but the big selling point is that it was one of two with a balcony overlooking the town, where so much of the daily life is in the streets. It's convenient to the lakeshore (though the swimming beach is a 10-15 minute walk away), close to the ferry dock, and about 1 km away from the bus station. Close to many restaurants and sidewalk cafes. Service wasn't great, and we were a little concerned that there was rarely anyone at the front desk--leaving all our room keys at risk of being used by someone else.
