Nice family run hotelPosted Sep 20, 2014

Family-run hotel with great foodPosted Aug 26, 2014
Pros: Restaurant - Views and food.
Location: Nearby beach is fantastic for a swim or even a whole day by the beach. The restaurants near the church boast lovely views and fresh fish for dinner.
Located in Praiano, this is a quiet stop between Positano and Amalfi, closer to Positano. The food is fantastic and beaches close by. We were here in high season - August - so getting around was not easy. The buses were always full. And if you're prone to motion sickness, get your meds ready before traveling to Amalfi on the Sita bus. The views are stunning from the windy roads but not the most pleasant if you have a sensitive stomach. The hotel is basic, no fridges and you have to carry your own luggage to the second floor - but that's reflective of the affordability. The staff is extremely helpful and as mentioned, the food served at the restaurant fantastic.

Hidden Gem on the Amalfi CoastPosted Jul 24, 2014
Pros: It's a small boutique hotel that has friendly owners who can speak a number of different languages.
Location: Walk down to the beach, visit the bars and restaurants along the path, see the wonderful ceramics in the nearby shops and enjoy the panoramic views.
Open Gate is a lovely hotel just outside Priano, about half way along the Amalfi Coast. It's spartan but still quite appealing, with an excellent outdoor patio and an even better restaurant. Breakfast is included and it's excellent, with lots of different options and delicious pastries. Dinner is amazing, from the wood-fired pizza to the seafood platter, it was by far the best meal we had in Italy. The owners are charming, very nice to talk to and get tips from. The beach is a short distance away, a nice downhill walk. Our room had a lovely patio, with lots of shade and a nice breeze. A great place to stay - quiet and peaceful, with wonderful views.

Open Gate hotel, Praiano, Amalfi Coast, ItalyPosted Apr 6, 2012 on Hotels.com
A very friendly family run hotel in a beautiful location on the outskirts of the town. It was therefore a 15 minute walk to the town centre. We were made to feel very comfortable and the only criticism is that the bed was very firm. Food was good and there were a good selection of reasonable local wines. All rooms seem to have a balcony. We were on the second (top) floor and had stunning views out to sea and of the local coastline. The location is good for the Amailfi coast. We had a hire car and Sorrento (for Capri) and Amalfi itself are within easy striking distance. If you are looking for a very lively nightlife then it's not the location for you. Not a 5* hotel, but I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to explore the area.

Great ocean viewsPosted Oct 8, 2011 on Hotels.com
Very easy to find. Off street parking most welcome. Bus outside the door going to all villages along the coast. Not easy to get to the beach, which actually is more of a fishing village but truly worth the walk down to experience it. We stayed at the end of the peak season and the hotel lacked some atmosphere. Despite great terrace eating area there were no other guests dining. Service was friendly from the staff but the owner seamed a bit grumpy when the staff were showing some interest in us. The room was adequate, but the food could benefit from a little more quality. Breakfast was a little on the just okay side; cereal and one croissant, no meats or cheeses. Overall, it was just achieving its star rating.

A wonderful and romantic placePosted May 19, 2011 on Hotels.com
My boyfriend and I stayed there for two nights and had a wonderful time. The staff was so friendly and really went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and provided everything we needed for a nice romantic weekend. The rooms are airy and they all have large balconies that look out over the sea. Our first night we had dinner at the restaurant on the terrace overlooking the ocean. It was a delicious meal with lots of fresh seafood dishes. We looked around town but found this restaurant to be the most affordable and it was right downstairs! The breakfast consisted of croissants, bread and jam, cereal and fruit, with your choice of coffee beverage. It was not too fancy, but filling and a good start to the day. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk outside of the main town, but it is such a beautiful place and very relaxing. There is not much to do in Praiano besides eat, but there is a quick bus that goes straight to Positano. I would highly recommend going there, it is so beautiful. It felt like walking through a postcard. The only one complaint I had was that the beds and pillows were very very hard. But other than that our stay was absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough about how kind and generous the hotel staff was.
