Reviewed 18 June 2017

We spent 4 days at Open Gate. The location is perfect; right in the middle of the Amalfi Coast. A short bus ride to Positano and Amalfi. A ferry takes you to Capri or the hotel staff can arrange a private boat for a day tour of the coast, Stefania and Pascal are the perfect hosts. The rooms are lovely, with every room having a beautiful view of the sea from the their balcony. The food and dining room are perfect so why eat anywhere else? Several family members have stayed here more than once and now we understand why!

Room Tip: We had 4 rooms. They were all excellent choices.

Good and clean hotel with a beautiful view. The room was a little smaller than expected but the large balcony with the stunning view made up for it. Location of the hotel is excellent.
Breakfast was delightful in their courtyard restaurant.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
Staff were able to organize an affordable shuttle for us to get to Amalfi coast, as we were not ready to take the overcrowded bus ride back.
The hotel does not have a lift which was a little difficult to carry our bags to the second floor. However, we managed.
Overall great experience.

Hotel Open Gate is a quaint family run hotel on the Amalfi Coast. The rooms are clean and adequately equipped. The bed was very comfortable. We had a room with a large balcony and despite it only being March, it was warm enough to sit outside until the sun went down. The views are amazing, breakfast was fabulous and it is one of the few hotels in the area with parking. Make sure you have dinner at the hotel. The food was all homemade and of excellent quality.

We chose Praiano because of the location--a smaller, quieter town but with easy access by public bus to the larger, more touristy towns of Positano & Amalfi. The hotel is owned & managed by the Lauretano family, who built the hotel in 1965. The elder Mr. Lauretano is still the primary pizza maker & keeps his vintage 1969 orange Fiats parked out front. The rooms are comfortable & have wonderful sea views with French doors opening onto the terrace. The food is consistently good & in our 5 nights there we had several lunches & dinners, as well as the breakfast that's included with the room rate. They also have a parking lot beside the hotel, which is a major asset (although we didn't use our car, preferring to go by bus & boat, which was easy & inexpensive). The family & other staff are great, making this overall experience fantastico!

Room Tip: All rooms have sea views & terraces, so I don't think there are any "bad" rooms.
