We were very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Fantastic location right on the waterfront and within walking distance to the town, restaurants, buses, shopping, tourist attractions etc etc. Staff were really helpful and very friendly. Great room with a balcony and good wifi. Would certainly stay there again.

This was by far my favorite hotel in Italy out of all 5 hotels that I stayed in. The staff was friendly, the view of the ocean from my balcony was amazing, restaurants were 3-5 minutes walking distance, had its on private access to the water. The Circumvencia line stops a block a way from the hotel, so if you... More

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
