Spent 2 nights at this hotel as part of a group and the location was fantastic. We had views of the sea from our room which were just beautiful. The hotel itself is older and the rooms were comfortable enough but certainly not 4* standard. The room had quite a cold feel to it and the bed was not the... More

This hotel has seen better days. Considering this is a 4 star hotel, the standard is not up to an international 4 star rating. The rooms, which although clean, are very dated with old and shabby furniture. The bathroom was small and old-fashioned with a weak shower and intermittent hot water. The dining room has the potential for a great... More

The Hotel la Bussola is a nice family hotel. It is billed as 4*, but the rooms are not really quite up to this standard. The hotel is located just 150 metres outside the old city, overlooking the bay. this is in some way an advantage, as the old city is easily accessible, yet you avoid the usual problems of... More

This hotel was very disappointing - not 4-star quality. The room had no airconditioning so we had to sleep with the shutters open at night. The breakfast was limited and poor - rotten fruit on display and coffee not very nice. The staff were indifferent and failed to pass on information to us from a tour company, almost resulting in...

During our time on the Amalfi Coast we had opportunity to visit other resorts and check out the general locations of other Hotels but none could possibly have suited us better than La Bussola. The Hotel is such an easy and "FLAT" walk from the harbour, the bus terminus, the town centre and a huge variety of restaurants - unique... More

Very nice family run Hotel across the street from the water, just 5 minutes walk from the center of town. Not as chaotic as if you would be staying in the center of Amalfi. Room was very large with an outside balcony over looking the harbor. Had a pull out couch to accommodate additional people. Breakfast was OK as well... More

Stayed 2 days in September 2011. Vicenzo was wonderful and welcomed us to our room which overlooked the marina. Just chilled in this beautiful area of Italy and enjoyed swimming across the road from the hotel on their sundeck platform. Balcony just great for sitting and having drinks and people watching. Loved it.

We stayed in Amalfi for a week in this lovely property. The location at the end of the harbor is perfect. The room was large and we had a terrace overlooking the water. The best part of the experience was the staff. They made great recommendation for restaurants and tours. The greeted us every time we came in. One of... More

We stayed here for 7 nights on a Page & Moy organised tour. The hotel is on a quiet road with its own bathing platform right on the marina. The main coast road is immediately behind & above the hotel and was occasionally noisy at night. The centre of Amalfi is just a 5 minute walk and buses & boat... More
