We decided to spend some time in Italy and Sicily using local transport and a ferry. Arriving in Naples we took the bus to Sorrento where we spent a few pleasant days, and then took to bus to Amalfi. Travelling this way you start thinking 'will the Hotel be easy to find when we arrive ?'. In this case the...

We have been to this hotel twice. The first stay we had a corner room with windows and a balcony on each side. It was just what we had hoped it would be. The second visit we were not lucky enough to score the same room but we did have a great view. The hotel is within walking distance to...

Excellent management. The building is spacious, modern and sonny, the floors are covered with fine tiles (from Vietri, nearby!), lobby and dining room are decorated with fresh flowers . The very good breakfast is including special local bakery (sfoghliatelle). The rooms are very comfortable with a superb view from the balcony over the sea and to the city of Amalfi....

The Hotel La Bussola is in the heart of Amalfi, mere steps away from the main square. We drove from Sorrento and while they have parking, it is TIGHT, so beware. The weather was not ideal, so we decided to make use of the internet-You pay for the internet and the connection was not very good. The evening restaurant was...

This hotel has a great location! Rooms were clean & comfortable. Staff was very helpful whenever we asked advice. If you are able to get a room with a view of the marina, do it. It is most beautiful in the morning! My only complaint was wi-fi. Virtually non existent in rooms. However, there is a computer in the lobby...

We stayed for one week in May 2012 and found the hotel to be wonderful. Like an "old" fashioned English Guest House - but in Amalfi. Great place to hold a "murder mystery evening" The food at dinner was wonderful. Service exemplary and the staff were delightful. Most helpful and humerous. Our bedroom was little old fashioned but very adequate...

Hotel la Bussola is situated just a couple of minutes walk from the main bus station from where you can get buses along the Amalfi coast or up into Ravello.

Brilliant location. Just 2 mins walk away from the main square/ bus stand. Very serene quiet place. Very quaint decor. They have an internal parking area, which is a big plus since you cant park in the other town parking area.
