What a gem! Fantastic location opposite Amalfi Marina. Our room was charming, wouldn't have looked out of place in the Amalfi hey days of the 1960s. The little balcony meant we could watch the world go by before we headed out to join the throng. The hotel offers locked car parking which is essential in Campania if you want your... More

A perfect location overlooking the sea. We had a comfortable room with balcony and fabulous view. The hotel is very clean and quiet however it is beginning to show its age and really needs an update. Why not make it a 5 star? The breakfasts were rather bland and predictable which was a shame. All in all though we found... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Rooms were great, had a balcony overlooking the water, dining was okay. Food was fairly basic, but the wait staff helpful and pleasant. I would recommend this hotel as it offers standard accommodations for this area with breakfast and dinner and has great views. No complaints, just that it could be better, but the holiday... More

You can't go wrong with this waterfront location - a short walk to town and the boat terminal as well (make sure to visit beautiful Positano!) Our balcony overlooked the town which was beautiful at night. There is a rooftop balcony where you can relax and watch the sunset too. The set dinner menu for our package was quite good... More

My wife and daughter and I stayed for eight nights in September/October 2015. This is a very friendly, well run hotel with great staff who go out of their way to help you enjoy the Amalfi Coast. The hotel is located a little bit away from the hustle and bustle of Amalfi centre but the town, ferries and restaurants are... More

We were looking forward to our 5 night stay at La Bussola having spent the previous 6 nights in Sorrento. The location overlooking the harbour was excellent and we enjoyed watching the boats coming & going during our stay. The staff were all pleasant and the restaurant staff were very attentive. Breakfast was good but we would have enjoyed more... More

A lovely hotel right next to the sea and all central amenities e.g. bus stop, ferry, restaurants. The room was reasonably clean and staff at the reception were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was pretty basic, however and the room would certainly benefit from a kettle. There was a problem with the final bill where we were about to be charged... More

This was a great hotel for the price. First it is in a fabulous location which was so convenient unlike many of the other hotels. Secondly the hotel itself was full of charm and our "family room" was spacious and had fantastic high ceilings not to mention the cute balcony and lovely views of the ocean, harbour and coastline.
