“Charming”
Reviewed 18 April 2013

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 the plaza and we enjoyed both visits. They serve a wonderful breakfast each morning and you can purchase signature cups to take home. It was charming and we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: if you can get a corner room with 2 balconies you will not be disappointed.

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. Ideal situation at the beach with a 3 minutes walk to the city-center.
Very supportive and competent service of the whole staff.

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 not open as we were there during low season.
The rooms were basic, but extremely clean.

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 that you may use. It would be nice to be able to relax in your room & have a feeling if privacy while on the Internet. Decor is a little dated but all in all it was a comfortable stay. Would I stay again? Absolutely! Ciao, ciao!

We stayed in January 2012, and stayed 4 nights. Wasn't very busy as there were not many guest - which was great. Staff fantastic very helpful. Room adequate and resturant food cheap. Very close to the centre of town and bus station. Reminded me a little of Faulty Towers as they had long time guest staying over the winter period - lol not Basil yelling at everyone! Great palce to stay and relax after a long time travelling.

Room Tip: try to get a room overlooking the water - sunsets are great

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 and the setting made up for everything. Right on the foreshore and 5 mins walk into the lovely old town of Amalfi. Close to the ferries going to Capri, Positano and Sorrento. Loved every minute of our stay.

Room Tip: we had a corner room with large patio to walk around and view the sea
