The Ancora Riviera Hotel is located in a truly splendid setting, in the magical Tigullio Gulf.

The hotel has recently been renovated and offers a refined and welcoming environment, which is relaxing and informal. It is ideal for those who would like comfortable accommodation having docked at the well-equipped Lavagna's marina. To make guests' stay most pleasant, the hotel offers the famous American Bar, a Swimming Pool, a Solarium and the Technogym Fitness Club. Private car parking, around 50 metres from the hotel. Lavagna was recently awarded the 2014 Blue Flag, which is a prestigious label given out by the Foundation for Environmental Education to localities which are distinguished for the quality of their beaches and waters. The hotel is 30 km from Genoa, 50 km from the Cinque Terre and just 15 km from Portofino, one of the most famous and exclusive tourist spots in the world.

Great experience! Very clean hotel, perfect air conditioning. Breakfast very good (does not change at all from day to day so slightly repetitive). Fresh and sparkling water available every day. If you want to visit the cinque terre and portofino/genoa, the train station is 5 min walk from the hotel, so very convenient. The only small problem was that there were a lot of dogs in the hotel who barked but the hotel offered us the parking (70€) for the inconvenience caused by the dog in the room next door. Thank you !

Excellent free hotel parking. Very ample and varied self serve breakfast Lovely lounge area and patio. Available gym facilities, clean rooms and if you get a balcony room, great view. Note front of the Hotel faces the street but there is a reserved area to park and unload your bags and check-in. Hotel will direct you to their private parking Back of hotel faces a marina, a lovely boardwalk, running and bike paths and the gym facilities. Ideal place for mature couples touring nearby famous Riviera towns, wanting a place to relax and/or wishing sporting facilities.

We arrived only to discover that the location of the hotel wasn’t to our needs due to my husbands walking restrictions - I knew the pool was located away from the hotel but the walk and steps weren’t suitable. The walk into the town again was longer than expected. Despite this the hotel was lovely - very clean, excellent amenities and the staff were very friendly. The room, a quadruple, was slightly on the small size but again very clean. The breakfast in the morning was varied and tasty - again staff were very helpful. A great hotel but just it for us due to location.

What more to be said, friendly staff that also makes good cocktails, they have a pool and a gym. Very close to the beach etc. Rooms were spacious and clean. We would absolutely go here again if we're in the area. 👌

We stayed here en route to Cortona and the hotel kindly reserved one of their parking slots for us on the street. It is located between the railway line and the sea, so took some finding. There are a couple of underpasses from the land side which you need to look out for. Only a 6/7 minute walk from the restaurant area, so no problem.the hotel sits between 2 streets running parallel to the coast/railway line. The railway outlook is not salubrious, but we walked in to town without any worry. We had drinks outside in the evening and it was all very pleasant and it leads to conversations with other guests. Good breakfast and good room
