I visited Minori June 2014 with two friends, celebrating our 40th birthdays. The Hotel Lucia staff was gracious and accommodating, making fantastic recommendations about day trips and local activities. Our room was clean and comfortable, with a lovely small balcony. Highly recommended.
The hotel and its surroundings are enjoyable, depending on what your priorities are - Minori is a sleepy little town with not many restaurants or shops. While we were there (3 nights,Wed-Sat) the weather wasn't good, even though it was the end of May &everything in the town closed quite early (before 21.00)- we were left with little choice of places to eat. My advice would be to consider what you are doing and what part of the season it is, because if you want parties with a young crowd, it's not the place for you!
Hotel Settebello fitted our criteria - we wanted a cheaper alternative to some of the other towns on the Amalfi coast with good access to other places -and we got that. Minori is quite quiet but the hotel is near to the sea and the bus stop and it is a clean hotel with a nice atmosphere, pleasant staff and at a reasonable price. We were sorry to leave in the end! But we needed a map and the hotel had none.
The breakfast was ok, not bad - their was a good selection of cakes, yoghurt but we found that you had to go early to get fruit or the best bread.
Our main complaint would be the noise.. our window looked out onto a stone wall which has a busy road on top and the traffic has to beep because of the angles of the road - with the window closed, this did NOT bother us. What did bother us? The noisy people in the hallways -it woke us up very often in all the hotels we stayed in- we wished that the Italians would be asked to be more considerate of the other guests!
We tried to experience both worlds of the Amalfi Coast, staying at the Grand Vesuvius Hotel in Sorrento with 90 rooms/floor and at the Maison Rafael in Minori with a total of ten rooms. Minori is a blue collar town--kids going to school, laundry hanging from the porches... Antonio the owner of the Maison Raphael speaks great English and he has a sense of humor. He gave us good suggestions to places to eat and where to catch the bus, etc. He runs a clean hotel (although the toilet did run all night), but it is a clean room with balconies overlooking the street. After driving the Amalfi coast, I gladly parked the car and took the bus to get to the town of Amalfi. Antonio has a gated parking lot for guests, but the charge is 17.50 Euro per day for parking. There is a bus stop within sight of the hotel, so we caught the bus to the city of Amalfi to catch the boat to the Isle of Capri. The town of Minori has some good restaurants and it is worth exploring the back alleys of the town--we ran into a music school with an operatic soprano singing at one end with accordian music from the other end. Nice town, nice hotel.

Nice hotel close to beach, bus stops and everything (since Minori is not that big). Rooms are small (especially shower), but clean. Ours was with double bed, and mine was a rather cranky one. Breakfast is good (don't expect an omelet with sausages though). Owners are hospitable and helpful.
Although this is a small hotel by some standards, the staff are accomodating and friendly - doing whatever they can to make your stay enjoyable. The views are beautiful as are the hotel rooms. A great terrace for breakfast and drinks. Highly recommended
Over 300 steps from town centre but that gives you good views and away from other tourists. Very basic breakfast left in fridge for 2 days and room not made up after first morning. Need to be fit (and carry minimal luggage) to enjoy this b&b. Only a small bar up the street that opens at 4pm so may want to take extra food with you. Worth the effort.

"Very well run hotel; great, eager to please staff"
Had a great 7 night stay at Hotel Bonadies. We didn't have a balcony in our Standard Room, but we did have the most beautiful view imaginable, plenty of space, air conditioning and every comfort. A special mention to the housekeeping staff for their efficiency and very high standards. The outdoor breakfast dining area, rooftop terrace with seating and sun loungers and pool area are on three different levels and all have breathtaking views. A good buffet breakfast is provided, with coffee and tea being served by staff at tables.
