“A friendly family run hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We spent 4 nights at the Hotel Gentile as part of a self-guided walking tour of the area.
This is a traditional hotel where the whole family take care of the guests. We were well looked after. I have many food allergies and the breakfasts and dinners provided catered very well for my problems. They took the time to check what was suitable.
We had a large room with a sunny balcony overlooking the town square. It was a quiet location- we quite enjoyed having the church clock nearby.
This hotel is ideally suited to local walks and is close to bus connections to Amalfi and the coast.
Unfortunately the weather was mostly cold and wet whilst we were there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the square to get morning sunshine.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

We spent four nights at Hotel Gentile on our "self-guided walking tour". Agerola is central to several key locations and a nice family town. Our travel package included breakfast and dinner. Breakfast was 'continental' and the same every morning--no meat or cheese. Dinners all had almost the same appetizer and fruit for dessert. The primi course was the best--very good pasta dishes. TV's in rooms minimal and wifi only in central office area. Rooms were basic but very clean and we stayed in the back through the grape arbor. The church bells made you very aware of the time.
That said, we liked Mario very much and the location on the central square was a great window on the local scene. The hotel was steps away from the "Path of the Gods", truly a lovely walking experience overlooking the coast although it was not a long path and if you do the 1700 steps into Positano at the end, good luck. The bus is an option to descend.
I think two or three nights would be a good length stay at Hotel Gentile.

A large group of us enjoyed our stay here.
We had rooms in the annexe at the rear - pretty basic but fine.
Breakfast offered little in the way of choice but was filling enough.
Evening meal (part of our package) was really good - simple, local food - delicious and plenty of it.
Staff friendly & quirky - good fun.
Bomerano is not a buzzing place - but the location is excellent for walks from the hotel, and there is a decent bus service (just watch the one-way return into town).
A truly family-run hotel.

Room Tip: The main hotel block in theory has better rooms. In the annexe - east facing rooms look out onto the...

This hotel is ideally placed for walking, being virtually at the start of the "Path of the Gods". It's a 40 minute bus trip from Amalfi on a very narrow winding road with spectacular views. From Amalfi you can get to Positano or Ravello.

It's an old family run hotel. They're all very nice especially Mario. Breakfasts were ordinary, but dinners were very good.
