        • Group of friends
          8.2

          loved the location and the ambience, friendly service and breakfast was very good

          towels were too hard

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Welcoming and attentive. We found it to be a well run private hotel of the typical continental relaxed owners approach. The cleanliness was excellent. Cannot comment on the food as we ate out, other than to say that the breakfast was absolutely fine. Very good position.

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          Excellent staff, lovely fresh clean rooms, classic Italian food. Staff were really helpful throughout our stay.especially since we became victimes of the Volcanic disruption on 15th April and had to extend our stay.

          Breakfasts were always the same, lacking variety and choice.

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          This was our fourth return trip to La Bussola. The location is excellent in the town, with beautiful views over the harbour area and bay. The standard of the superior rooms is excellent. We were extremely comfortable for our 10 nights in the hotel. The breakfasts have also improved since last year. This is a well run family hotel and we hope to return in the future!

          It's more of a suggestion than something we didn't like. The rooms at the front have little balconies. Guests tend to take the two chairs from the room to the balcony but a couple of plastic chairs on the balcony would be good.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Fantastic location right in the middle of Amalfi next to the harbour with plenty of restaurants close by. Comfortable rooms with excellent views.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          We only stayed for one night but enjoyed the location and view out of our window. The staff were very helpful and sorry to see us leave so soon. The room was quiet at night and the harbor view at night was romantic. We would stay again on a return down the coast.

          We have two suggestions: one is related to your towels - they were quite harsh and used. New soft towels would go a long way. Also your breakfast was basic and a little limited compared to the other two hotels we stayed in on the Amalfi coast. Sufficient but not very impressive.

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          The location was excellent and lovely views from the sea view rooms. Also the friendly staff with classic old-fashioned service and reasonable prices in the bar!

          The decor is dated - pea green sofas and swirly carpets. The location and friendliness mean that sort of doesnt matter though!

        • Couple
          4.2

          The location of this hotel is good, very close to the town centre and our room had nice sea views from the balcony.

          A very poor hotel far too expensive. We booked it for a romatic holiday but when we got there we were extremely dissapointed. Tiny room, very old and shabby furniture, poor breakfast...really overpriced for its quality.If we go back to Amalfi we definitely won't go back to this hotel.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Very boring breakfast. This breakfast was for 3 star pension. Also the dinner. Expensive and nothing special. The only good thing was the location, and de room whi the sea view. Internet connection was very bad and its not normal for charge it, 4 EUR/h.

          10.0

          The hotel is in an awesome location, right on the harbour and within walking distance of many restaurants (without the need to climb steps!) . Great rooms with fabulous views. Staff are exceptional, in particular Vincenzo, who went out of his way to assist us.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Nice view of the ocean and Amalfi coast. It was a bit difficult to find the location by car.

          continental breakfast was only average.

        • Couple
          9.6

          The ambience of the hotel is really homely and unique. The bed was more comfortable than bed at home. The view from terrace at Breakfast (which was hearty) was awesome. The free internet was appreciated.

          No complaints, everything was great. Maybe just provide a more detailed map to guests.

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          This is a very nice 3 star hotel, situated in a 5 star location! You couldn't ask for a more beautiful place.

          Only one gripe! The breakfast, although a variety was offered, it never differed in the week we stayed. I can get very bored of ham & cheese, cerals and bread rolls.

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Advice regarding day trips etc. was freely given and time was taken to help with our queries. The night staff were excellent and a credit to the hotel.

          While the hotel was clean and I do appreciate that it is in an expensive area, it is relatively old fashioned and overall the value for money was not very good. In recessionary times I feeel that there is a need for all hotels to look at these matters and reduce prices. The Amalfi coast hotels are not immune to this fact.
