This is a great hotel with a wonderful staff -- the best from our entire 12 day trip in Italy. The rooms are wonderful with amazing views that you can see from your room balcony. The location is perfect as it is close to downtown but a block away to avoid most of the noise at night. The breakfast offered... More

We had a room with lateral balcony, which turned out to be perfect for the night of fireworks. At first I worried about road noise because it lies between the promenade and the main road at a gradient at the back. But it turned out to be of no problem at all. Ceramic tiles were used liberally, but the wood... More

We couldnt get a superior room and settled for a standard which is small and clean but with... More

Stayed there 2 nights with wife and 2yr old kid. Small room. Old style. Old furnishing. Bad service (AC was not working. Asked for someone to come fix it - nobody even bothered!) Mould and rust in the bathtub. Noisy water flow ($#%). Towels that I can't really explain (between dish towels and bed sheets). Dull breakfast. There is one... More

We stayed at the La Bussola by mere accident....we had 2nights booked at the Grand Excelsior but upon arrival seeing what kind of service we were to deal with, we cancelled and found this hotel in town that had a room available. So, we got stuck with paying for a superior room that had basic furnishings, towels that were more... More
