I have been traveling through the Dolomites on a cycling tour for the past 8 days and this has been the best hotel by far. The family proprietors have definitely made an effort to cater to cyclists, but this should not dissuade normal (non-cycling) people from staying at Gentzianella.
The kitchen produces a fabulous three course meal every night with 4 or five options for each course. Service during the dinner is efficient without being too cold - staff are easily able to deal with the antics of my traveling companions!
Rooms are clean with most having a balcony to enjoy the views of snow capped mountains.
Now some comments relevant to the cycling fraternity:
I am envious of the bike storage and workshop area. We have not come across anything like it in our travels. Keycard access provides good security for those wanting to bring their carbon fibre indulgence on tour.
The hotel also offers a washing facility where they will take a washing bag of guest cycling clothes every day for cleaning. What a great idea! The owners understand that by doing the little extras they leave guests with a good impression of the hotel.
I would defintely choose to stay here again in future. In fact, I would make sure I could get a room at Hotel Gentzianella before I booked my flights to Italy.
