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 staying inside a medieval town - lots of stairs, narrow street, noise from the ever-present scooters, etc. I stayed there in the winter, a very quiet tourist season on the Amalfi coast, but there were still quite a few guests, apparently retired Italian pensioners from northern Italy staying for several weeks at the time - obviously a cheap holiday in a warmer climate for them. The room was adequate, and well furnished, but rather small as is so often the case with Italian hotels, with hardly enough space to walk around the bed. The most charming aspect of the hotel was the double doors opening to a wonderful sunny balcony, with views over the fantastic bay of Amalfi. The breakfast was more than adequate, in a very pleasant breakfast room again overlooking the bay. The Hotel La Bussola also has its own undercover parking, right behind the hotel cut into the rock face, a great advantage if you travel by car. In the winter season the prices were also quite reasonable at around 80 euro or so. This would be a perfect hotel for staying a few days or longer, exploring the Amalfi coast.
