The seafront view of this hotel is stunning. Most rooms offer a balcony opening onto a picture perfect ocean view. There is a rooftop terrace where the guests can relax. The rooms are clean and pleasant. The breakfast buffet offers good variety and quality. The hotel is located within walking distance of everything in Amalfi.

The view of the marina and the promenade from our balcony window was like the front row seat of one of the best theatres in the world. In the morning I would open the shutters and there were bobbing boats, early morning passers-by and the sight and smell of the sea. The roof terrace has a fabulous view of Amalfi...

A lovely hotel with ceramic tiled floors and walls. The staff were helpful and courteous. The rooms were nicely appointed with double paned windows to keep out the street noise during the day. Wonderful hot water for showers and comfortable beds. Lots of outlets to plug in your gadgets (not as easy to find in hotels in Italy). Breakfast buffet...

I participated in a two week tour of Italy and this is one of the hotels that was in the G Adventures Tour. It was very pleasant, good views, right on the waterfront. Just steps to pick up the ferry to other cities. Close to restaurants, shopping etc. Morning breakfast is pleasant.

This is a pleasant hotel, located on the waterfront in Amalfi. Room had a nice outlook and being just far enough away from the main centre of Amalfi tourist precinct to allow the doors to the balcony to be kept open at night. A short walk to shops and restaurants and very close to ferry point make it a convenient...

We, a family of three, stayed at La Bussola for three nights in May. The hotel is located on the waterfront, close (but not too close - which is a good thing) to the bus station and boat piers. Guests can easily walk to main town attraction points and enjoy a direct sea view. Our triple room was spacious and...

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....
