We stayed 1 night in a sea view room for which we paid 130,- Euro with breakfast included and we could very kindly use their garage for free which was an extremely nice gesture...

Cons: 1) Small rooms (by American Standards) 2) Dated decor. Was a Factory converted to hotel in 1963. Decor is from that era without the "cool factor" 3) Wi-fi poor in room. Computer...

La Bussola is perfectly located, being 2 minutes walk from the centre of Amalfi and right across the road from the ocean. It has a small private swimming area for guests. Most rooms have a balcony overlooking the ocean. The rooms are a good size, clean and well maintained. Breakfast is good and the dining room also overlooks the ocean....
