A very nice hotel, but the restaurant was unfortunately nothing special. With a nice location like La Bussola it's a shame.

We stayed at La Bussola in Amalfi for 4 nights in July 2012 with our 3 children and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our parents had stayed there a couple of years ago and so recommended it. Friends of theirs go there every year and were actually there at the time. Although La Bussola doesn't have inter-connecting rooms, we were next door...

lovely location in central ( albeit quite part) Amalfi, friendly staff, clean. A little expensive but so is all of Amalfi. Cant go wrong here unless you are full of nonsense.

We spent 6 nights in Hotel la Bussola in beautiful Amalfi coast. Hotel had excellent location, just few hundred meters from Cathedral of Amalfi. From my point of view, this excellent location was giving good value for this hotel. There were many hotels in center of Amalfi, but those didn't usually have view for the sea or anything like that....

We met Mena in June 2011 when we were in Amalfi booking our wedding. We were actually looking for accommodation for our guests and got chatting to Mena who showed us the beautiful roof terrace. We decided to book this for our pre wedding pizza party, held at the hotel in June this year. We cannot speak highly enough of...

This is an excellent hotel, superior to many an Italian 4-star hotel (though seemingly, from other reviews, not reaching everyone's expectations). As with so many hotels, however, the experience depends very much on which room is chosen. The standard rooms with side view of the sea are perfectly acceptable for a short stay, but for a very relaxing holiday with...

Being across the road from the shoreline, the rooms have an excellent view of the shore and out to sea from their balconies. The room was clean and well furnished, charming but not modern. If you like hard beds (fairly typical of Italy), it would be perfect. The staff were friendly and the owner has a delightful sense of humour....

We stayed 5 nights at La Bussola. The location couldn't have been better, very close to the coastal centre of Amalfi, near transportation, seaside view, yet far enough that there was no annoyance from the bustle of people, buses, etc. Breakfast every morning was typical Italian selections. The staff was friendly and their advice on attractions and transportation options helped...

LA Bussola is one of the best hotels in the amalfi region. You will not be able to find any other place with a room with an amazing view of the entire ocean. The staff is friendly and polite. The wi-fi on your computer / handheld device is expense, but you are most welcome to use a computer in the...
