We stayed at La Bussola for a week with an organised coach tour in March 2010. Our rooms were comfortable, although basic, since we had only paid for single rooms. The bathrooms could use renovation, but they were perfectly adequate. The hotel is very well decorated, with a welcoming reception and bar area. The bartender serves a large selection of...

We arrived in Amalfi in early December and, with many of the hotels closed, asked the tourist office for recommendations. They suggested the Luna Convente and La Bussola. Luna Convente was eerily quiet and being refurbed. So went for La Bussola and did not regret it. We had a beautiful room with lovely sea views. I think it had just...

My wife and I have just spent a week in this hotel and enjoyed an excellent holiday, that was made the better due to the first class organisation and running of the hotel and its facilities. Upon transfer from Naples airport the hotel had a vehicle awaiting us at the bus station in Amalfi and our luggage was unloaded and...

After hearing fabulous reports about the Amalfi coastline I was lucky enough to find this brilliant hotel right on the water's edge (with no single supplement charged!). I enjoyed the holiday so much that I have booked again for September 2010 & I can't wait to return. La Bussola's staff were friendly, helpful and I can't fault the service at...

before we went we read all the reviews. Our judgement is that the hotel is in a great location - yes it can be a little "buzzy" outside at night but our sleep was not disturbed much if at all. All the staff were good - particularly the very nice bloke in the bar who was very attentive (we were...

My sister and I stayed at La Bussola for a week from 18 to 25 September. I have to say that it is an ideal location, no hills to climb and very handy for both the ferry and bus terminals and the lovely town of Amalfi itself. Apart from one or two of the reception staff who were quite grumpy,...

We spent just one night here during our travels up the coast. The value and location are excellent. Views from the window/balcony are just stunning. Management is efficient and cordial. The hotel is a little dated but very clean. The breakfast is perfectly acceptable but after being spoiled in Taormina at the Taodomus it was a little disappointing. Would probably...

After considering Positano, Ravello and Amalfi, we stayed at La Bussola for 8 nights during our honeymoon. The location is excellent, a short walk from the ferry dock and sita bus stop, very convenient for day trips to the surrounding towns. We stayed in room 232, which has a large balcony with table and two chairs overlooking the harbor, perfect...
