Hotel Ancora

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We choose the hotel based on the rate for a 4 star hotel. Even we were satisfied with the deal, I am not sure of the 4 star rating. The salted selection for breakfast is limited, we found all the time the same mortadella, and -some times- a cooked ham also. Vegetables were limited to tomatoes in 8 days of the 10 we stayed there. I would suggest to expand the options at least with some grilled eggplant, some vegetable salads...The sweets and fruits were in a large selection. Most of the personnel- one exception- were very kind and helpfull. Cleaning is done daily, if you leave the key at the reception. Private beach is also available, with reduced rate for the hotel quests, on the sandy beach across the street.

We stayed in Ancora hotel in Dicembre. It has a good location and it is not far away from the centre of Salerno. Il you have time there are many shopping centres near the hotel. The food is good and various.

But definitely not a place to stay for a beach holiday. The hotel overlooks the beach, no lido facilities, front rooms have balcony so you can hear the waves if you leave the window open. Rooms roomy and comfortable. Excellent WiFi (May 2015), very good fish, friendly service.

I should start off by saying that I travelled around Europe for a month and wrote reviews for each place I stayed -- not just the best and the worst. That being said, this was the worst.  Our first problem was getting there. We took the bus recommended by two different employees at the train station. That half hour ride only got us part of the way there. We then were told we would need a taxi. Everyone we spoke to for directions said, "why would you stay there if you want to be in Salerno. The taxi ride was another 40 euros. So if you are looking for something near the center of Salerno, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU! One of our main criteria was that the place have some Internet (wifi or computers that we could use). We asked for the WiFi password during check in and were told it no longer works and there was no Internet cafe around. The only option was to have a laptop with an Ethernet cord (we had to bring our own!). There was no indication of an effort to resolve the WiFi issue nor was there an apology for the inconvenience.  After asking at the desk, we came to find out that there is a bus that stops near the hotel (would have been nice to know this before spending 40 euros). Unfortunately, you cannot buy tickets at the hotel and there is also no ATM nearby. While the room itself was clean, it wasn't exactly an enjoyable stay. The showers are only lukewarm and the beds are either solid or so soft that you feel you will fall through. The breakfast that was included had a great selection and the waitresses were very attentive. Not enough of a perk to make me ever recommend this to anyone though!

This was my second visit to this hotel and once again I was extremely pleased with the cleanliness and friendly service! Great rooms with seaviews and easy parking facilities. Breakfast was excellent with English breakfast included! Extremely well pricec and located approx..15km from the Amalfi Coast ride.

we stayed at this hotel for 1 day (sunday). the service of the staff was a disgrace, they don't know English at all. The a/c did not work (and because it was sunday they couldn't find someone to fix it.....) very poor breakfast. small pillows.hard bed. on their website its a 4 star hotel-it should be a 1 star or hostel. the public beach is very dirty. The location is very poor. avoid this hotel!

Finalmente!un vero 4 stelle con la pulizla professionalità di un albergo di questa categoria.Ho soggiornato due giorni in bed e breakfast ed è stato tutto perfetto dalla stanza spaziosa e pulita alla colazione abbondante e super fresca!la vista sul mare di Salerno ha fatto il resto!bravi!

Ciao, dal mare in padella perché?? Semplice inizio estate, tre giorni trascorsi con il brusio del mare in sottofondo pescando dalla splendida spiaggia distante 10 metri, fondale sabbioso e degradante hotel che si affaccia sul mare antistante con possibilità di praticare vari tipi di pesca, spinning, self casting, ecc ecc ancora tempo di seppie e polpi qualche lancio e subito si porta in padella 4 splendide seppie di taglia sapientemente cucinate dal cuoco. Cosa dire un hotel rinnovato e accogliente con buonissima cucina e belle camere vista mare, al centro di crocevia per le due costiere sia la selvaggia cilentana che la splendida e famosa amalfitana, con la città di Salerno nel pieno della sua bellezza naturale estiva e addobbata invernale con le famose LUCI D'ARTISTA....Quindi non esitate a passare da PontecagnanoFaiano fermandovi al HOTEL ANCORA & SPILUCCHIO......Chiedete del signor Mario proprietario simpatico e cortese con pancetta da PRINCIPALE E FARE DA SIGNORE!!Dite che vi manda Gerardo amico del club AREA. Dimenticavo il mitico Peppe suo figlio.......Cambia la moto!!

Sono da piu di tre mesi in questo hotel e devo dire che mi sento come a casa..personale gentile e qualificato in hotel e professionalita e cortesia delle ragazze di sala al ristorante e una cucina tradizionale molto buona. Lo consiglio a chi vuole passare un soggiorno piacevole. Bravi.

hôtel très bruyant ,personnel pas très professionnel ,pas accueillant du tout sauf pour la réservation au téléphone (on a eu une personne qui parlait français )mais après plus personne, nous avons passés trois nuits et pris les repas du soir. Le restaurant très bas de gamme on se croirait dans un routier(bien que j'en connaisse de très bien et là on le sait quand on y va),il y a beaucoup d'habituer et le touriste passe après il y a deux écrans de tv dans la salle et le son est très fort (super quand on veut manger tranquillement) La chambre au 4ème étage avec vu sur mer est pas mal ,grande terrasse mais manque de propreté ,il y a une salle d'eau avec douche mais le système de douche fonctionne très mal(on n'arrive pas régler et on se lave avec un filet d'eau) Le clou c'est les prostituées qui viennent racolées sur la terrasse de l'hôtel ,enfin la plage très sale l'autre côté de la route
