This is a wonderful hotel with fantastic views of the harbour of Amalfi, and very close to the central square. Very helpful and courteous staff, and very accommodating. Fantastic rooftop patio to enjoy a wonderful evening after dinner! My room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. Had a terrace, very well suited for enjoying the views and great local wine!...

The stunning views along the Amalfi Coast provide makes any dump seem a palace. Not that this property is a dump - how could it be when French doors open onto a small balcony that offers sea breezes and a view of the (town of) Amalfi harbor? And yet, this hotel desperately needs updating. There was but one available outlet... More

This is a wonderful hotel overlooking the beautiful coast of Almafi. It is just off the square and is convenient to all of Almafi. The staff is exceedingly courteous and helpful with all of our needs. The rooms were spotless with Italian Charm. I would highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate to stay their again.

Despite 'Terrible' TripAdviser reviews, we though we'd give Hotel la Bussola a chance. Situated enticingly close to the port, making it extremely accessible to boats and buses, the hotel was only an 8 minute walk to the main piazza. Therefore, the hotels location was its strong-point. Equally, all of the hotel staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful (holding places on... More

La Bussola is a lovely hotel with comfortable rooms, a nice staff and a fabulous location very close to the marina, the bus stop and the center of Amalfi. You can get everywhere from here. It has a dock area with chairs where you can take a dip in the ocean. A short walk away is a public beach if... More

Would go back to Amalfi any day. Beautiful town and La Bussola is in the perfect location. It has its own private beach for guests. Food was good, but have had better (eg. NH La Spezia). Preferred Amalfi to Cinque Terra.

Let's start with the positives. This was our return trip to Amalfi and a second stay at La Bussola Hotel. We stayed there with some of our Italian family members 12 years ago. I must stay it is still a solid hotel. Clean rooms and great location. The breakfast was very good, fresh, clean and organized--and the staff in the... More
