Nice but expensive

Posted 01-Aug-2016
Cons: General information when arriving
Had a nice stay at the L'ancora. The staff is pleasant and the comfort is good. Breakfast was good and they have a lovely pool area at the partner hotel down by the harbour. Only thing that is not good is that they didn't inform about the parking fee when we arrived. They said that they was just going to take care of the care when we checked in. 40 Euro for 2 days, is to much when we could easily parked the car somewhere else.

Sweet suite

Posted 27-Jul-2016
Pros: Most personnel were great, especially concierges Margherita and Alfredo.
Location: Location was central and perfect. Parking car a problem unless you let the hotel handle for you.
Recently stayed 4 nights. Had the 3 person suite #206. Fantastic large patio with incredible view and hot tub.

Beautiful and comfortable hotel.

Posted 14-Jul-2016
Wonderful hotel. A bit of a walk from the ferry. Restaurant (and full breakfast) are great. Views fantastic. Rooms and bathroom are luxury. They do not have a pool but their sister hotel does and you get full access to it which is wonderful! Their sister hotel is perched just above the beach and very close to the ferry which made our last day a breeze.

Wonderful week in Positano at Hotel L'Ancora

Posted 06-Jul-2016
Pros: Everything, room, views, staff, location and overall comfort level. This includes excellent AC which is sometimes challenging in Europe.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Great location near shopping, restaurants and a nice walk to the beach, although hilly we felt it was great exercise!
We spent the last week of June 2016 at L'Ancora in Positano and I must say it was our favorite place that we stayed in Italy. To our delight they booked us in room 206 which has an enormous patio, with Jacuzzi and overlooks both the hills of Positano and the ocean. The views were magnificent. It was truly a spectacular room. Additionally, I had read negative reviews about the front desk staff and I must strongly disagree. Alfredo was not only delightful, but, enormously helpful in securing dinner reservations, transportation and a myriad of other things for us. He is an enormous asset to the hotel. Marguerite was also very helpful. The location of the hotel was perfect for us, because we enjoy walking to the beachfront after eating dinner.

best views and next to best hotel in Positano

Posted 28-Jun-2016
Pros: The views and lunch at the hotel restaurant very nice. Staff extremely helpful.
Cons: Loosing a $200 shirt to the dry cleaning service wasn't too good............... left details to get it back but no response from hotel staff.
Location: Location very good.
Junior suite with jacuzzi on the balcony - a must in lieu of a pool. Great views, spacious room, clean and in good location.

想像通りの素晴らしいホテル!

Posted 27-Jun-2016
Pros: 立地場所と部屋やホテルからの眺望。
Cons: たまたまかも知れませんが、部屋の掃除後、髪の毛が落ちてることがあった。
ホテルからの眺望と立地が最高に良いです。町の中心にあり、ポジターノらしい見たかった景色がそこにはありました。 スタッフもほとんどの人がフレンドリーで、快適な滞在をすることができました。 特に朝食会場のレストランからの眺めは最高でした。またポジターノに行った際は、利用すると思います。

Nice hotel with a perfect sea view

Posted 25-Jun-2016
The room is big and clean and got a perfect sea view. The only bad thing is the hotel doesn't have swimming pool but it shares a pool with the other hotel near the beach. I didn't check out the pool coz it's a bit inconventient. Overall I would recommend the hotel to all others.

Disappointed

Posted 21-May-2016 on Hotels
We stayed here for 3 nights, would say generically the hotel is well located in positano near the center of town, ocean view rooms. With that said the service and amenities for a hotel that's suppose to be a 4-star hotel is lacking and would note hotel staff, mainly the check in process and assistance for guest related services is below average especially for the price we paid. Would not recommend this hotel if you're looking for a true 4 star hotel.
