Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We RSVP’d late for a wedding in Amalfi and this was the only hotel available for our dates of stay. We had no expectations and generally stay in 4-5 star luxury hotels. What a wonderful surprise at La Bussola! We could not have been more happier with the location, the rooftop bar, the cleanliness of the large room, the very helpful and friendly staff who helped arrange taxis, restaurant reservations, a hairdresser, laundry/ironing and when we were stuck unexpectedly needing a ride to the wedding, one of their staff drove us in their personal car and even picked up 2 of our friends waiting for a taxi in downtown Amalfi. Grazie!

If you want to enjoy a dreaming holidays and to feel at home at the same time, then La Bussola Hotel is the place. They offer you beautiful and clean rooms, that are carefully done every day, a very delicious breakfast, an amazing restaurant, a rooftop terrace with wonderful views of the coast and their private platform to enjoy the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea, What else you need? Well, actually there is more, all this comes with the great service of their staff: Paolo, Franchesca, Salvatore, just to mention some of them, all the staff are lovely and very kind, couldn’t ask for a better stay. Excellent value for the money you pay.

We stayed at the hotel last week and we really loved it there. The hotel is in a superb location, you have the marina outside where you can get the ferry to numerous places like Positano, sorrento and Capri. The buses go to ravello. The main square is literally 5 min walk to all the restaurants and shops.

The hotel itself was lovely, we booked a suite and initially the AC in our room wasn’t working so they moved us to another suite. The room was clean and lovely and had beautiful views of amalfi. The only thing I would suggest is they have plugs by the bedside tables to charge phones and put an extra bin in the room. Other then that the room was perfect!

The hotel staff were friendly especially the breakfast staff. They were so friendly and kind!

Overall, we would return to stay here.

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.

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

I cannot begin to say how pleased we were with our choice in La Bussola for our stay on the Amalfi Coast. The location was terrific near the center of town, on the waterfront close to bus and ferry transportation. The rooftop outdoor lounge was the icing on the cake.
As for the staff, what a wonderful group of people who constantly went out of their way to make your stay a home away from home. High praise goes to Luciana who was outstanding, all I had to do was ask and she was there. She was spot on with restaurant recommendations, travel arrangements, and a genuinely friendly and nice person, don't know how i survived without her help.
Breakfast was bountiful with something for everyone's taste. The staff in the breakfast room couldn't have beer nicer always a smile and always seemed to know what you wanted before you asked. Thank you Francesca for your Italian tutoring I now know to ask for my espresso with a scorsetta di limon like a pro.
If you are looking for a boutique European style hotel on the Amalfi coast look no further.
my warmest regards go out to the entire staff. Thank you for making this New Yorker feel at home

We had the extreme pleasure of staying for 3 nights in July in this beautiful Italian hotel. It is truly delightful and I would describe it as having elegant charm.! Great care has been taken to give this hotel such charm/ tasteful furniture throughout; beautiful plants and decorating throughout; well appointed rooms with individual character. The dining room for breakfast overlooks the harbour and is a large bright area providing an excellent breakfast. We loved being able to walk to the town centre of Amalfi with all its beauty and excitement and then refresh ourselves from that busyness with a short walk"home"! It was very hard to leave!

I highly recommend Hotel La Bussola for its convenient location adjacent to the ferries and main piazza as well as its swimming dock, balconies with beautiful views of the sea and outstanding service. The rooms are very nice. The breakfast is ample. The rooftop bar affords lovely sunset views. You get a lot for the price here. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here 3 nights. Super location. Room was small but nicely equipped. Bed was a little hard but okay. Pillows were foam rocks. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great! Lots of choices and good quality. Only wish they had a shuttle since we had reservations at two restaurants that we could not walk to on the coast road. Taxis are too expensive and buses did not run late enough for return trip. We would stay here again.

Well maintained hotel with italian ceramic decor that matched the seaside resort feel. Choose rooms with balconies overlooking the marina! Well worth the money! Super clean room with full toiletries. Overall a good relaxing feel all around the hotel. Staff at the buffet breakfast was great & friendly while those at reception need to smile a tad more. Hotel is just 3min walk to the central jetty where you can take day trip via ferry rides to Positano, Salerno, Capri and all the other seaside towns along the Amalfi Coast. Public buses are also aplenty near the jetty.

Is there parking place on site?
Answer from Hotel L
Amalfi, Italy16 contributions
The ferries of the TRAVELMAR company will certainly operate, only a stormy sea may stop them for 1 or 2 days. The ferry pier is 500 metres from the railway station. Leaving the station, you have to cross the square and always in front, cross 2 streets and you arrive at the Concordia harbour. Once in Amalfi our hotel is opposite the dock. As an alternative to the boats there are the SITASUD company buses, they take twice as long as the boat and travel along our beautiful but narrow and winding Amalfi Coast. The buses run until late in the evening.

We have many rooms with the third elct. It is a normal bed 2.00 metres long and 85 cm wide. We use it for adults and children. Of course, if the room is used for 3 people there is a supplement for the third bed and the third breakfast. The cost is 40€ per night.
