I love this place! The warm family-feel, the perfect location – what else does one need in Amalfi. Hotel La Bussola was the 4th and final stop during our European stay. We researched dozens of hotels. Our Amalfi requirements: Location, Location, Location -- a nice place in town, on the beach, easy to book tours, with free Wi-Fi, air conditioning, free breakfast and most of all, A DEAD-ON SEA VIEW...Check!
It was enough that the list above was met but the folks running the hotel were so COOL. They were flexible with tour assistance and even allowed us to pay for tours by credit card (not all hotels did this).
And for those challenged by the vertical nature of Amalfi, aka all those dang steps…Hotel La Bussola is perfect. It lies on one of the few flat spots on the Mediterranean allowing your car service to drop you off at the door, and it’s just down the street from the SITA bus hub. La Bussola even has a swimming platform for hotel guests only.
Important: Sidewalks are important and lacking in Amalfi. Italian drivers are intense (aka crazy). Hotel La Bussola’s entrance has a crosswalk which leads to a nice strolling sidewalk that runs along a portion of the Mediterranean Sea so you’re not dodging cars in the street. This is important if you have kids and/or are walking impaired.
Amalfi is stunning. Don’t waste time booking a place that doesn’t meet your wish list. You’ll regret it.
