Traveled here with our 78 year old father. Selected the hotel since its one of the few near town with minimal steps. We could not have been happier! Location is right on the marina just a few minutes walk from the main piazza. Great staff and they have parking on site for only 10 euro a day! We booked two...

First of all, I want to point out that I grew up in Italy. My family is from Rome and so I am used to the Italian culture. That being said, I did think that the staff at La Bussola was a bit on the rude side. My parents, however, always stay at this hotel when visiting Amalfi, so we...

My wife and i travelled to Amalfi with friends and stayed at the Hotel for six nights. The staff were really supportive, helpful and welcoming. We were initially allocated a standard room which in our view was far too small and dark - bathroom was so small and left no room for storing washroom equipment. However, after requesting an upgrade...

Sayed here as part of a tour. Rooms were clean, bathroom was small, beds were good. The food was great and the location near town was excellent. It was beautiful sleeping with the shutters open to the cool bereze and the sound of the water. Nice balcony facing the water. Would certainly recommend this hotel.

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...
