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

Stayed here for 3 nights in July. Hotel was easy to find (the SITA bus stops around 50 metres from the hotel). Located in the harbour area very close to beaches (literally on the other side of the road). Room was basic but clean and comfy. Breakfast was basic too but enough to fill you up. My only minor grumble(s)... More

I'm really surprised by some of the negative reviews for this hotel. I thought it was a great hotel. The location was perfect. It was very close to the bus stop and less than a 5 minute walk to the main part of town. It's right on the water, and we had a very nice view of the sea from... More

Location is the must of this hotel. Situated at the "beach" and the road connecting to all other Amalfi Coast villages. Bus, boat, taxi-van transportation are available. Car parking is available, but for those who want to enjoy the Amalfi Coast definitely recommend to use public transportation. Hotel has an antique Bussola at the reception, since they consider it was... More

I stayed in this charming hotel for two nights in July 2014. The hotel is an oasis in the midst of a very busy tourist hub and perfectly located. I was offered a sea facing room with no air conditioner instead of the room I had booked which had a partial view with air on. A fan was provided without... More

Great life action and service, breakfast options amazing but try and avoid prepaying for their evening meal. We got 2 nights of vegetables that must have been precooked hours earlier and there are better options in the town centre. Otherwise it was great.

Australian couple visiting Amalfi for the first time - this hotel was a delight. Wonderful sea views, staff were friendly and courteous and helpful. Owner dined each night in the restaurant with her family - and the staff obviously enjoyed working in the hotel. Dinners were surprising - lots of choice and very tasty. Thanks for the memories:-)
