Jaw dropping views and overall excellent

Posted 26-Apr-2015
My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Italy, with Positano being our last stop. On 1st impression walking into the room, our jaws dropped. The view was incredible and the room itself was great. The balcony was pretty private (unlike some other hotels we saw) and it was a very fair rate as well. The staff was very helpful and friendly and the location of the hotel was great. Definitely will be revisiting.

Great Hotel in a perfect location

Posted 18-Apr-2015
Couldn't recommend highly enough! Just far enough away from the centre to not be bothered buy noisey bars etc but no more than a 5min stroll away from everything the town can offer. Big, clean rooms with great staff that can't do enough for you.

Hotel troppo caro rispetto ai servizi offerti

Posted 08-Jan-2015
Hotel in una posizione splendida e una bellissima vista , prima colazione con buffet misero da pensioncina da una stella non merita certo Il costo richiesto per tre notti in camera superior

Muy bien ubicado y excelente servicio

Posted 24-Oct-2014 on Hotels.com
Nos alojamos 3 días en una habitación superior que tenía una zona de estar en desnivel y una terraza privada con una vista excelente de Positano y el puerto. Lo único criticable es el servicio de desayuno. Muy pocas opciones para un hotel de esta categoría. Casi un desayuno continental. Además, el salón donde se sirve no tiene vista alguna.

L'ancora did not disappoint

Posted 30-Sep-2014 on Hotels.com
This hotel was in a perfect location. The device was terrific and the view was amazing. We travelled from Sorrento with a driver and glad that we did once we arrived in positano and saw the stairs and hills. We were pleased with our hotel choice as it was close to the beach and all the action. The service was great. I had to contact my credit card company and the staff were very accommodating. They called my card company and allowed me to use the hotel computer to book train tickets. We would book again.

Great location

Posted 09-Jul-2014
Hotel was clean & in a great location; beautiful view. Staff was accommodating. Breakfast was along the line of a Best Western Hotel; filling but not impressive. Overall, a good hotel.

Positano da sogno

Posted 10-Aug-2012
Pros: La posizione e la vista
Location: Positano non ha bisogno di commenti. E' una vera perla.
Personale disponibilissimo, posizione centrale, vista dalla camera meravigliosa e parcheggio gratuito. Consigliato.

very nice location and views

Posted 07-Aug-2012 on Hotels.com
great hotel and superb service. On the negative side was the fact that they had no pool area. But the views from the balconies was spectacular. Service was one of the best of its kind.

A bit of luxury

Posted 05-Jun-2012
Pros: Room was luxurious, 'in room' breakfast option, staff were very friendly - they even came into the room at night to turn down the sheets!
Cons: Outdoor jacuzzi on neighbouring balcony
Location: The L'Ancora is nicely situated however there is quite a steep climb from the centre of Positano. Its not a place for anyone with walking issues!
The L'Ancora is an unusual hotel in that the reception is at the top of the hotel and the rooms on 4 floors beneath. The room had a big bathroom with jacuzzi, lovely furnishings, conservatory area where you can sit and relax or eat breakfast; served in room if requested and big balcony. The sea view from the balcony was great but slightly blocked by the balcony of the neighbouring room which also had an outdoor jacuzzi, which was noisy and we found it annoying that we had a nice balcony but could be disrupted at any time of the day or night by this noise. The other thing to be aware of is that there are limited facilities at L'Ancora but it has a sister Hotel Covo dei Saraceni which is some distance away and has a pool and restaurant which you can use along with its other facilities whenever you wish.
