I have visited Capri with a group of friends and we were impressed of the hotel conditions: very friendly staff, spotless clean, tasty breakfast. The hotel has a very good position in quiet area from Anacapri and we had some nice rooms overlooking the sea. The terrace was superb, as well as all design details of this small hotel.
I really appreciated everything about it so I strongly recommend it! And for sure if I will go back to Capri I would make the same choice!

Rita, Christian and staff were absolutely amazing! They catered to our every need and went out of their way to make our stay awesome. They gave great dinner recommendations, provided free shuttle,and served a delicious breakfast. Thank you so much for a great stay! The room was spectacular. We highly recommend to stay here! :) Wonderful people.

We stayed for 3 days. Rira and her team were bery kind and good hosts. The rooms are clean , nice little patio outside our room. The nice add on is the terrasse/patio on the roof. Nice place to watch the sun set. The great thing about location is you are in a quiet place and no too many tourists. Nice little breakfast. The only little detail that makes this very good is the shower was a little small. But the service received was exemplary. Maybe big hotels should offer the same type of quality service that Rita and her team offered.

My wife and I together with our 6 year old daughter recently returned from a wonderful 5 day break on the beautiful island of Capri. Being our first time and not knowing the island, we opted to stay in the quaint, quiet and residential part of the island - Anacapri.

The choice of hotel equally proved to be superb as the Hotel La Bussola sits peacefully in the quiet hillside of the island amongst some lovely villas and homes enjoying magnificent country and sea views.

The hotel is a splendidly renovated villa with magnificent tiles, charmingly painted white walls and lovely ceilings. It enjoys a lovely and ample terrace garden with wonderful views of the Port of Naples. It is only a few minutes walk from the picturesque centre of Anacapri, from where you can easily visit the famous Grotta Azzurra, the beautiful lighthouse and the chair lift up Mount Solaro with breathtaking views of the whole island.

The family run hotel was clean and the staff, especially Signora Rita, her brother and Signor Ciro were all amazingly helpful in everything we needed, preparing detailed itineraries for our daily outings and accompanying us in their little van to the town centre as taxis can not pass through the lovely narrow streets.

The hotel was superb value for money and we would thoroughly recommend it as a choice to stay when visiting the island. Visiting the Capri town centre and piazza only takes 15 minutes in a panoramic minibus ride from Anacapri to Capri with views of Marina Grande beneath.

We definitely suggest Anacapri as a base on the island and by choosing Signora Rita’s family hospitality you certainly can’t go wrong.

This hotel is the definition of disgusting and was grosser than some hostels that I have stayed. To start, when we checked into the “hotel” there was no one at the front desk to greet us. We were walking around aimlessly trying to find someone for 25 minutes before someone showed up. Secondly, we were told this hotel had a pool and was one of the reasons we booked it. Obviously when we showed up there was no pool. We would not have stayed here for that reason. Next, I was traveling with friends and their room was infested with ants. Finally, the most suspicious thing of all is that this “hotel” only accepts cash. How do they expect you to pay for your hotel with cash? Extremely shady and suspicious. Overall please do not stay here it’s a waste of time (very inconvenient to the city we had to take busses and taxis everywhere) and money. Plus online the “hotel” claims online that they provide shuttling to and from the marina. This was obviously also a lie and forced us to pay for taxis/city busses.

Many thanks for your review… i am so sorry if you are so disappointed but just to explain once again :
Is not advertise any swimming pool on our web page….. second thing …. you booked a room for 2 person and at the check in where 3 person…and you tryed to let the extra person enter in the hotel for the second entrance!!!! this was not correct at all and as you remember i changed the room in a triple room ...so next time i suggest to be more correct and book for the right number of person.
