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

We stayed here for 3 nights. The owners really are gems! Very friendly and helpful; from things to do, to where to eat. The rooms are very clean, we stayed in a private suite with 4 people. Rooms were cleaned everyday, breakfast included and they are expanding! Will definitely stay here again!

Thank you to the owners of hotel bussola who helped me plan my day around the stormy weather we were experiencing. Also, the lift back to the bus station upon leaving was the icing on the cake, thank you! Lastly, your Wi-Fi is AWESOME FAST!

List of reasons: 1. The toilet was broken in half 2. The towels were rags I would not use to clean my floors. 3. The beds were super old and uncomfortable 4. It was filthy, everywhere. 5. They showed us one room when we booked while walking around town to find a hotel to extend our stay. It was OK.... More

Thank you to all at Hotel Bussola for our fantastic holiday! We stayed here for three nights and had a really pleasant stay.

We stayed here for 5 nights with our 3 children and loved it. The rooms are spotlessly clean, Rita and all the staff were so helpful and kind and very informative about how to spend our time in Capri. The view from the roof terrace is beautiful - we used it for picnic dinners a few nights. It's in a... More
