Albergo Ancora is located in Via Montanara within the walls of the old town - in fact most of it lies "Intra Mura". It is well located and close to shopping and the main sights and the ferry. The rooms either face Viale Dante or Via Diaz. Those facing Via Diaz can be noisy from the restaurants in the area as well as those in Via Disciplini and Piazza Cavour (the noise carries). It is close to Piazza delle erbe where there is a small fruit and vegetable market in the mornings. There is a small lift to the rooms. A small lounge lies between the outdoor restaurant and the main restaurant. There is also a covered rooftop restaurant which is probably used in summer or on special occasions. Breakfast is served in the restaurant and is not particularly good. The ham, salami and cheese were all tastless and the bread and toast inedible. Yoghurt was only 2 flavours - vanilla and straberry. Hardboiled eggs and cake were sometimes provided. There was no choice of beverages and if one did not drink tea or coffee hot chocolate was a chore for the staff to organise.
The rooms were small but reasonably furnished. The toilet was clean though somewhat dark. The toilet lid collapsed on you when you used the toilet. There was no air conditioner or fan and in hot weather one had to decide whether to sufficate or sleep with the windows open and contend with the mosquitos and the noisy restaurants which seem to go until the early hours of the morning.
We would not stay at this hotel if we revisited Riva Del Garda.
