Just returned from my trip to Capri … this beautifully decorated hotel located in Anacapri is idyllic and far from the tourists. The environment is peaceful and tranquil, you can capture the essence of Capri just living there. The staff were all very helpful and the hotel is very clean. Highly recommend it!

So, this hotel is very very cheap compared to anything else on the island. Firstly, it is on Anacapri, which is a bit further away from the marina so there is a rather long journey involved if you don't want to pay €18 for taxi. The hotel itself is nicely decorated, clean and the staff friendly. It has a certain... More

We decided to stay at Hotel Bussola for our 2 year wedding anniversary and we loved it! It's a beautiful hotel and the hosts (a brother and sister) were so helpful and friendly! After spending over 3 months in Europe over the past few years, we can honestly say this was the best breakfast we have EVER had! The pastries... More

The hotel is a little bit further away from the center of Anacapri, but that is really only means 5 minutes more to walk, and the crew in the hotel is very friendly, the environment very calm, the rooms are large (compared to other rooms in Capri), and the breakfast very good. The hotel only took payment in cash though.

Our family loved our stay at Hotel Bussola. The staff was incredibly kind and helpful from the moment we got there. They assisted us in purchasing tickets from the chair lift to a boat trip in order to avoid any lines and arranged for us to be picked up for dinner at the hotel. They offered great advice on what...

Me and my husband traveled through Italy and decided to spend one day in Capri, at this point we were exhausted, and because the blue grotto was not permitting access, we were a bit deflated. However the lovely family who run this hotel convinced us to do the cable cars which became the highlight of this trip for me, and... More

Our stay at Bussola was wonderful. My wife and I renewed our vows in Ana Capri. The staff was so helpful with showing us and setting up tours of the beautiful island. Rita helped us contact the padre to set up our wedding in santa Sofia, a beatutiful church in the town. Also she provided an unused room for my... More

Tought we loved the location, which was secluded and peacefull, the rooms were very basic and we felt as if we hadnt recieved the good service that some reviews had mentioned. We would definetly come back to Capri but not to that hotel, which was bit of a diisappointment..

Stayed 2 nights at Hotel Bussola. The owners are great, so helpful with suggestions of things to do, even showing us photos of the sites. The friendliest staff from our whole trip. We walked from the bus stop in Anacapri and it's about 15 minutes. Nice quiet area, away from the tourist center. The hotel and the room was beautiful,... More
