The L’Ancora is set in a characteristic, ancient building in the heart of Riomaggiore. This charming town is set along the Riviera and is part of the renowned Cinque Terre. L’Ancora features traditionally furnished guest rooms and a common area complete with a free distributor where you can enjoy coffee, tea and hot chocolate. This small and intimate establishment is located in the town’s historic centre. Riomaggiore is situated in a small valley and is known for its wine coming from the many surrounding vineyards. It is close to sea and has a small beach on the Gulf of Genoa. L’Ancora is a great base for those wishing to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Cinque Terre.
Room was comfortable. Good internet.
Room was up on a slope in a separate building, a few hundred steps from the reception and the published location of the hotel. Tough if you got a fair amount of baggage.
We had a great stay at L'Ancora. The room was really clean with modern decor. It was a large room for europe as well. It looked like it had been recently remodeled. It's more of a condo. You pick up the keys at an office down the street and then you go to the unit so don't expect to be able to call the front desk for service because there isn't one. If you need something, they will definately get it for you, it may just take a little while. If steep hills and stairs are a challenge for you, I would probably recommend staying at another hotel. We really enjoyed our stay at L'Ancora.
The hotel was easy to locate after arriving by train. It was beautifully presented, clean and spacious. The owner/manager was very helpful with any queries. It is just a short walk to the harbour and train station and to the start of the walk to the other 4 villages.
I cannot complain about anything, it was perfect for us, sure there was a hill to walk up with a suitcase etc but if your village is built into a hill then you must expect to walk up one. It was great.
Goog location, immaculate room and bathroom all new and clean
room design is good and comfortable, house owner is very nice and he has a very good restaurant with sea view.
The room is unique. It gave us a feeling of being in a luxurious tree house. The free online connection is great.
Just a suggestion that the guests who need parking should be informed that no car is allowed in town after 7 p.m., and guests should arrive before then to be able to get the luggages by car to the L'Ancore.
Clean room, nice decor, little refrigerator was very convenient, great little perks like muffins/juice and spumanti.
Steep hill up via Colombo, but the hotel itself was very nice.
uniqness of the setting - old & historical setting with modern amenities
Facilities were good. Good decor. Well equipped
A sun umbrella was not fixed despite our request
Conveniently in the main street but not very noisy; compact but too light in the morning!
Only one chair but two occupants; going up stairs for bathroom; no extra pillow and no-one on site for managment. It's a hotel but a rented room with en suite.
