This hotel was excellent. It was part of a tour that we did. Would say the facility we found was not 4 star especially compared to the 4 star we just stayed in, in Sorrento. The staff were wonderfully helpful and gave loads of great advice. Breakfast was fairly average. The restaurant was average looking , but the food was...

We' ve lived in the room with balcony and sea view. It was great . You can only sit in the balkony and look at the sea - it's enough to feel happy. The beautiful and...

The hotel is situated right on the waterfront, a short couple of minutes stroll from the main centre of Amalfi. The hotel has its own area on the front that you can sunbathe on or take a dip in the sea, which is very useful as only a small section of the beach is free to the public ( much...

My husband and I were recently married in Amalfi, Italy (September 2012). La Bussola hosted the majority of our family and friends for a week of wedding festivities. We all arrived and departed at different times and we didn't have a single issue. In fact, they surpassed our expectations. At first glance, it is really easy to see that the...

Originally booked at Il Saraceno Grand Trip Adviser reviews persuaded us to change to be closer to the town. La Bussola was excellent. Car parking round the back (€15 a day, but scarce in these parts), free internet (although not always reliable outside the lounge), very convenient position, lovely room, comfortable large bed, balcony, view over the harbour, OK breakfast....

We were there some 4 weeks ago in October 2012. For 1 night. We wanted to explore Amalfi city and surroundings and stay for 2-3 nights. We stayed 1 night in a sea view room for which we paid 130,- Euro with breakfast included and we could very kindly use their garage for free which was an extremely nice gesture...

Pros: 1) Close to Town 2) Friendly Staff; knowledgable and helpful making travel arrangements 3) Clean 4) Great views from "ocean view" rooms and great roof deck. Cons: 1) Small rooms (by American Standards) 2) Dated decor. Was a Factory converted to hotel in 1963. Decor is from that era without the "cool factor" 3) Wi-fi poor in room. Computer...
