The Bussola is a great hotel. 3 words, location, location, location. Short walk to the center of Amalfi and across the street from the ferries and bus stops. The hotel has a very friendly staff and a small covered garage. We will for sure return here and enjoy what is likely the most beautiful coast in the world.

Just back from a weeks stay at Hotel La Bussola. This is a fantastic location for exploring Amalfi and the amazing surrounding villages Positano, Ravello, island of Capri etc. This hotel is located right at the sea front with spectacular views and easy access to the port for boat day trips. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff were... More

+++++ Nice people to work with. Super clean, modern, great food (for the price) in the hotel's restaurant. Good rooms (for the price chosen ) 6 meters from the hotels beach. 5 min walk to the centre of the most comfortable Amalfi city, and to the -very important -transportations. Beautiful view. Good pricing. ---No kettle in the room

Great location on the waterfront. Close to center of town but away from the tourists who come in on cruise ships! Easy level walk into town (which you can appreciate after the many hills and stairs up the cliffs around you.) Very friendly and helpful staff who gave us good tips for restaurants and activities.

Five nights here and enjoyed every minute! Good view from our comfortable room, very friendly staff especially our waiter Renato and receptionist AnneMaria. Had dinner one night there and it was excellent, tho breakfasts not very exciting. Great location as so close to everything, but because not near main square (just 3 minutes walk away), it was quiet. Good pontoon... More

The hotel is right in the downtown area of Amalfi and within walking distance of almost everything. The traffic in Amalfi is terrible and we park the car in the hotel garage and just leave it there for our entire three-night stay. Check-in was quick and easy. A bellman got our luggage from the car and brought it to the... More

Hotel on a major avenue on the coast of Amalfi. while close to the action, it is very noisy related to the street side location. No effort made to control jack hammers at 6:00 am nor speed bumps to slow the constant motor cycle and auto speeding by.

This hotel is in an excellent location in Amalfi. It is on the waterfront & has spectacular views of the Mediterranean. Definitely ask for a sea facing view with a balcony. The decor is a little dated but the hotel has lovely old world charm about it. The staff were super friendly & very helpful. We stayed 2 nights in... More

In Amalfi coast most hotel is up at hill or away from town. It is so relaxing when you can walk to eat, shop and take a tour without all the steps or use car. This is an older hotel with good speed wifi, clean room and friendly helpful stuff.

Rooms very nice decorated but a bit old. We had a outside sittingarea on the 2nd floor overlooking the port. As we needed parking we did choose this hotel and we did arrive early so no problem but if you come late my guess is that it could be a problem. Breakfast was included and normal Italian selection.
