Hotel Ancora Riviera
Ranked #4 of 16 Hotels in Lavagna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 September 2015

Hotel Ancora is located in the town of Lavagna that is situated between the Cinque Terre and Portofino. The hotel is located on a street by the port of Lavagna so within walking distance to town, the train station, the bus stop and the ferry boats. The hotel has refurbished rooms with air conditioning, an elevator, a lovely breakfast in the morning and in the evening for 6 euros a fabulous apertivo (a wonderful buffet and any cocktails you desire are included in the price) and served in a lovely setting. The hotel pool is part of Marina Sporting Club and the pool is large, well maintained and has sunbeds reserved for the hotel guests. Beaches are within a 5 minute or less walk. Highly recommend this hotel, the staff went above and beyond!

Room Tip: We had a room facing the street and it was fine we did not find the street noisy.

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!
