We stayed at this hotel from 3rd to 10th October 2021. I can’t say enough about how helpful and friendly the staff were. Our room was lovely with a fantastic view from our balcony. The hotel was slightly quaint with a very Italian feel, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The location was superb just couldn’t be better everything on our doorstep the ferries, buses and the beautiful town with a wealth of bars and restaurants. We were disappointed the jetty had been taken down the day before we arrived and as the hotel has no pool you do need this facility if you like to swim. The little beaches are quite stony and a little difficult to get in and out of the sea. Also the terrace could do with some sun loungers. The terrace at night however was gorgeous for pre dinner drinks with a panoramic view. We would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely return.

The location is great, AC did not work, and hotel was outdated, we originally booked in 2019 for a 2020 stay but Covid, they were the only hotel in Europe that refused to refund me so we stayed in 2021 (they gave us a year to use our credit) charged us additional for parking which i do not believe was a charge in 2019,

Response from Hotel La Bussola, Proprietario at Hotel la Bussola

Thank you for your review, we are pleased that you enjoyed the location of our hotel and the amenities it offers. For the 2020 reservation that you did not take advantage of, you agreed to wait until 2021 to come to Amalfi. You used a stay in 2021, but you had paid for a non-refundable one that gave you discounted prices. On the other hand, we too have suffered the crisis of lack of work and for our economy, which is only tourism, I assure you that they have been very hard months to live. As you will certainly have seen, using a car on the Amalfi Coast is inconvenient and expensive. We are very lucky to have a car park reserved for our guests and it has always been paid for so as not to penalise those who, more intelligently, come to the Amalfi Coast without a car. Public parking in Amalfi costs 25€ per night, if you can find a place, and there are no other free parking areas, not even far from the centre. In Positano and Ravello parking prices are even higher. The next time you come to Amalfi we suggest you take into account the advice of those who live in this beautiful and "unique" part of the world.

The location was the only great thing about it. its dated, definitely not 4 star hotel the fridge didnt keep the prodcts cool at all we asked for extra blanket and were given something close to a blanket that was very unpleasant to touch (the material) the bathroom was small and had a strange smell (probably because it was old) we payed 200 EUR per day and it wasnt worth it. breakfast was good and staff was very friendly

We had a pleasant stay at Hotel La Bussola - it is well-located by the waterfront and close to the centre of amalfi, and the staff is very friendly. However, the room and airconditioning were a bit dated for a 4 star hotel. There are also some additional charges to keep in mind when booking. There is a 20 EUR per day parking charge (which, to be fair, is mentioned on the website). We found it very odd that we also had to pay a daily extra charge of 15 EUR to use the hotel’s sundeck, which felt a bit cheeky after having paid for our stay.
