A slice of heaven on earth. My husband and I felt like guests at a home more than visitors at a hotel. The service was Excellent and the bed sheets were changed EVERY DAY as well as beautiful jam-filled croissants served for breakfast every morning. The staff are a family with a high standard for perfection and pleasing and satisfying your every wish. The hotel was sparkling clean, quiet and beautiful. We will forever go back to hotel Bussola-Hermes. Bravo to you.
We miss you already.

Our first visit to Capri was an experience we were looking very much forward to - and we were not disappointed! Wether it was the beautiful nature, spectacular views, the warm summernights, great food and wine - Capri has it all! On top of this - a wonderful hotel with the kindest people - Hotel Bussola :-) As we arrived we got the warmest welcome from Rita, the manager, and it did not take long before we got to know the rest of the hotels kind family, Cristian and Ciro.

During our one week stay we got all the help you could ask for - wether it was tips for sightseeing, shopping - romantic restaurants - little surprises in our room and conversations as if we had known each other for years.

Everything was perfect - great location in Anacapri, wonderful historical decor, a nice and cosy room with balcony, always very clean and tidy - and a breakfast with the best doubleshot-espressos!

We only have the warmest recommendations for the hotel - and are looking so much forward to visit Bussola again! Hugs to you all - Rita, Cristian and Ciro from Carina and René, Copenhagen.

Once you find the hotel (and the owner responded very patiently to our four phone calls asking directions beginning from the highway south of Naples!) you are dazzled by its beauty, cleanliness, calm elegance, and very kind reception. We were particularly struck by the quiet even though the hotel was filled to capacity. The long, blue-tiled hallways decorated with Roman statues and expansive sea-view terrace with lounge chairs and hammocks were magical. We adored this stunning hotel and are already dreaming about our return trip.

We stayed here on 28.6.11, and booked through hotels.com.
Once we arrived at Anacapri it took us over an hour to find the hotel- the hotels.com instructions were poor and people we asked in Anacapri, including shopkeepers didn't know it, we arrived at the hotel very hot, very tired and stressed!.
The hotel itself was very clean but pretty cramped.
Breakfast was very basic- undercooked bread rolls, coffee and diluting fruit juice-ok for one night but any longer and this wouldn't have been acceptable.
When we checked out we had a heated argument with the manager- she really didn't want to take a credit card and tried to insist on cash despite the hotels.com website asking for credit card details for confirmation and stating- " won't be charged until you check out", we just didn't have the cash because of what the website said at time of booking.
She also wasn't happy when I said that she should have more accurate directions to the hotel on the website, and she wouldn't accept that we were right until she compared hotels.com directions with other websites- we received no apology!

Room Tip: Compact rooms, despite apparently being given an upgrade

We were travelling in Rome and were suggested to stop in Capri over the weekend at beginning of july.
We choose this hotel on website, thanks to his attractive rates quite competitive with all other hotels in the town of Anacapri.
Great location, few minute from Piazzetta and all actions, nice room, very quite and very clean. A huge terracce overlooking the sea, great breakfast best cappuccino and homemade croissant! beautiful staff....AND OWNER..RITA, CRISTIAN and CIRO,most generous people ever!!!
I would definitely suggest this beautiful hotel for all looking for privacy, great service and affordable rate.
