During our time on the Amalfi Coast we had opportunity to visit other resorts and check out the general locations of other Hotels but none could possibly have suited us better than La Bussola.
The Hotel is such an easy and "FLAT" walk from the harbour, the bus terminus, the town centre and a huge variety of restaurants - unique in itself for this coastline - and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. They really were prepared to go that extra mile.
The hotel really does have that family run feel and the views of the harbour from the front rooms could not be better. The balconies are small but large enough to sit out on. Admittedly if early to bed the voices of people walking on the road beneath the hotel carry to the room but as there are no bars directly below this noise does not normally go on late. Also you do get some traffic noise from behind the hotel but the way Amalfi lies I cannot imagine this could be avoided when staying at any hotel which does not involve climbing a cliff top get to it! By the way the shutters very efficiently block out any daylight so be prepared to set an alarm if you do have to rise early during your stay!
The breakfasts were perfectly acceptable - some tomatoes and cut up fresh fruit or fresh fruit salad would have been a bonus but there was a large selections of cereal, bread, danish pastries, croissants, meat, cheese, eggs, jams, juices etc.
We can also highly recommend the walking tour the hotel suggested we go on of Amalfi.
I would not hesitate in recommending La Bussola to others.
