Hotel is right on the water, close to town, busesvand ferry. The owner Vincenzo and his staff were great. Our room had a beautiful terrace overlooking the sea and at night sitting outside you could see all the country side lite up.

This hotel has some good points, it's clean and is in an excellent location. The breakfast staff are polite and efficient, as are the reception staff. However neither of them were really tested by us so don't know how they would cope with an unhappy customer. The outside seating area on the forth floor leaves a lot to be desired....

We have just left Hotel La Bussola after a 10 day break there. I had read some of the previous reviews, which were less than positive, so was a little apprehensive about our stay. Thankfully, we did not experience any of the things mentioned and had a memorial and relaxing time in Amalfi and at La Bussola. If you want...

Amazing hotel and location!! What a view, WOW!! I would stay there all over again if I ever make it back to Amalfi. The staff, specially Marissa, are beyond friendly and very nice, with great sense of humour! Nothing beats its location, location and location, cleanliness (beautiful tile work all over) and price. Fabulous people!! I highly recommend stay at...

We had a great room in this hotel on the waterfront! The employees at the front desk were very helpful setting us up with a driver to Pompeii and a trip out to Capri. The location was great and an easy walk to the restaurants in the Piazza. If you want to swim, just cross the street to their waterfront...

If you dare to drive along the winding and narrow coast road, you will deserve the break ! Right on the sea, a beautifully decorated hotel, very friendly staff, our room had a balcony on the sea and it was definitely worth it ! No restaurant in the hotel but plenty of opportunities nearby. Hotel has private parking (a bit...

This is a nice traditional hotel right on the sea front/harbour in Amalfi. We upgraded to a superior room on the third floor with wonderful views of the harbour. (There are lots of boats coming in & out which is quite interesting). I would recommend a B & B stay as whilst the continental breakfast is very good, the evening...

This was our first time in Amalfi and we absolutely loved the area. It was just beautiful and we had a fantastic time there. When we checked in to this hotel the staff were a little abrupt, not too friendly but we were shown to our room quite swiftly. She took our passports though and then we didn't get them...

Well what can we say, the staff were fantastic in particular Vincenzo and Matteo the Barman. Reception staff were very helpful in providing information on where to go and what to see. The location could not be better, the view from the room was perfect just what I had always imagined Amalfi to be. This is not a "Boutique" hotel...

Location can't be beat. It's separated from it's private water/beach deck/pier by the narrow road. So you're right on the water. It's less than half a mile from the center of town where you can find amazing shops and eateries (osterias, pizzarias, ristorantes, etc.). The deck is made of steel that is bolted into the rocks on the "beach" (there...
