“Friendly family run Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

We stayed at Hotel Gentile during our walking holiday to Italy. We loved our stay at the family run hotel. The staff were kind and went out out of their way to help us with all our travelling needs. The food in the evening was always something we looked forward to after our long daytime walks - the food was traditional Italian cuisine at its best, served with care and attention.
The rooms are clean and boast character. we particularly enjoyed our bath and balcony.
The Hotel is full of Italian charm and we would not hesitate to stay there again on our next holiday to the Amalfi coastal area.
Top marks, thank you very much to Mario and his family - we appreciated greatly all of the warmth and hospitality shown to us - Agerola is a great place - we didnt want to leave!

Moved here from Naples to Amalfi in order to walk the Path of the Gods and other local sights, hotel is very basic but that just adds to the charm. Friendly staff, who appear to either be related or just all live nearby! Hard to distinguish. The place has a feel to it like staying with relatives. The rooms are comfortable but very basic in decoration and certainly no mod cons.

Best thing was the food. We all (20 of us) ate here each night and the food was tremendous, home cooked and very tasty...

We did not stay here but did have a wonderful homemade dinner our second night. The son and mother took good care of us. He speaks good English. Also, they saved us. We left our bag in the square and did not remember until an hour later. When we returned they had found it and kept it for us. Very gracious people.

The warmth and hospitality we experienced exceeded all expectations!
What an absolute gem. Comfortable, clean accommodation. Italian home-cooking at it's best. Perfectly situated for hiking the Amalfi coast.

Our family staid 3 nights in the Albergo Gentile as part of a walking holiday booked through a travel agency. We were half board and staid 3 days around 15/08 which is a big festival in Italy. Staying at the Albergo Gentile is like stepping back in time, somewhere around 1950's in Italy. The decoration of the rooms has probably not changed much since then but the bathrooms are up to modern standard. It is very clean and family run, so there is a special feeling about it. The half board option was an excellent surprise, with honest and plentiful good family food for the set dinner and 4 courses dinner the Italian way, starter (always including excellent bruschetta), primo piatti (homemade pasta), secundo piatti and dessert! The drinks are relatively cheap and there is a good choice. Our party of 5 was extremely hungry after the day of walk and we never left the table hungry anymore, quite the opposite. We add the additional benefit of being part of the local festivities as the Albergo is on the church square. We had a free concert of local music one night, a small firework another night. On 15/08 we had a problem as our program included taking coaches to and from the start/end points of the walk. Mario was extremely helpful, checking for us the coaches times and when we saw that there was none (!) he phoned a local taxi and help us to book our return trip for a very reasonable price. The albergo is otherwise very well placed for the walks but not at all on the seaside (30 to 40 min bus to the sea!) but there is a cheap daily shuttle to and from it.
If you want a fashionable place, the Albergo Gentile is not for you but if you want a simple, authentic place, with a family feeling you should definitively give it a go

Thank you to Mario and his father and uncle for a great holiday. The hotel is clean and comfortable and set in a lovely little village, away from the glitz of Amalfi and Positano.

The food was brilliant, and my strange diet was well catered for.

The home-grown wine was brilliant.

A truly great Italian experience.

Like others we stayed as part of a walking holiday for 4 nights. The hotel is really nice. Set on the town square which was always busy with people. Our room overlooked the square and sitting out on the balcony in the evening watching local life go by was so relaxing. Food was good, breakfasts simple but filling, dinners featured local produce cooked excellently, we looked forward to each course. Walking was good straight from the hotel door, but to really explore get the Agarola hiking guide book from the hotel or information shop opposite, it features brilliant maps and descriptions in English. Mario has been mentioned in other reviews, he's very good, and nothing is to much trouble for him. Overall great hotel, great location, we'd return anytime.
