The staff was amazing, hotel rooms and lobby area very nicely decorated. Marina view and ability to walk to the beach very nice. The pool and exercise are across from the back of the hotel and looked nice but we prefer the beach. The beach area has many sections that have chairs and umbrellas for rent along with food and drinks available, each owned independently, we used the first section with orange and white umbrellas, two ladies that run it were very accommodating and restrooms close.

We stayed here for three nights and wow, were we well taken care of by one of the most friendly, smiling and helpful staff in Italy!

Three Best things:

1. The food. The hotel serves a delicious traditional italian breakfast. In addition, they have "aperitivo" 6-9 pm everyday at the hotel. In italy this means that you Order at least one drink and you have access to a buffet (this one is one of the best ones and perfect if you want to taste some italian appetizers)

2. The staff: so friendly and hwlpful no matter what you ask them for they are so patient, and honest. One example, i forgot something extremely valuable in my room
After checking out- the staff ran after me to Ensure I didnt forget it! You feel safe in Lavagna and at hotel ancora- you are in good hands!

3. the rooms: clean, airconditioned and modern for italian standard (ive been travelling quite a lot around italy). Cleaning staff is extremely professional, great at cleaning and friendly

Things to consider:
- Wifi wasnt always on top when all guest were using it- but worked well when people were asleep.
Our comment: hey, what can you expect-the hotel does have wifi but not perhaps in the speed that you are used to but we could send and receive images and chat via apps.
And remember- you are on vacation in Italy! We didnt mind and it did NOT impact our trip negatively.

We stayed here for 4 nights in June after attending a wedding in Florence, we arrived by train which was really easy, and walked to the hotel.
The hotel is in a great position with lovely views (we had a seaview room!) the communal areas were always clean and staff were really friendly and helpful throughout our stay.

We had come to Lavagna to relax, with a little sight seeing. The use of the pool at the sports club was a real bonus and most of the day it was really quiet - afternoons were busier with school children. We often had the area for the hotel guests to ourselves, it would be good if snacks were available but we easily walked into the town when we got hungry.

The room was comfy and quiet, can't fault the facilities. Breakfast was varied and as well as the coffee machine you could ask for a latte or espresso. We really enjoyed the Aperitivo where cocktails and snacks were served from 6pm, we found we didn't need to go out for dinner after having a late lunch one day!

it's a good base to explore the area too, trains are cheap and regular to get to the beautiful villages along the coast.

Room Tip: Superior sea view rooms have the best view, but the price tag!

We had a very pleasant stay. We found that Hotel Ancora makes it very easy for us to relax and enjoy our stay in lavagna.The Familyroom was nice, We enjoyed the 'happy hour'. The Hotel Ancors is a excellent base for making trips by trainand bus to Cinque Terra and Porto Fino.
The staf speaks excellent english and always made time to tend to our needs and questions.
