There is nothing negative I could say about this hotel, Location,view,convenience and cleanliness were perfect
The hotel, overlooking Amalfi harbour, was well located for the town centre, tour buses and boat trips. Our bedroom and ensuiite were generous in size and had a balcony with full sea view. The public rooms were very pleasant, especially the sun terrace on the top floor. Staff were very friendly and helpful. A distinct advantage was the hotel car park.
Hotel is in an ideal position overlooking the bay,within easy walking distance of town centre but at the quiet end of the sea front cul de sac road. Public rooms are excellent. The restaurant staff were very helpful and made special arrangements for my gluten free diet. The food was very good. View from bedroom balcony overlooking the bay was splendid. The roof terrace was also ideal for relaxing in the sun as was the swimming area at the hotel front.
Room was a little small.
Very convenient location - within 5 mins walk (no steep slopes) from the town centre and SITA bus station/ferry piers. Friendly staff provided us with comprehensive info and tips. Room is very clean.
Wifi connection is inconvenient and expensive. The down side of the convenient location is that it's situated along a busy street and is quite noisy day and night. Room facilities are not great (our room has a broken safe, a double bed composed of 2 single-size mattresses and a very small TV) as compared to other 4-star hotels in Italy.
The location is excelent; in front of the Marina, and near the town center, just a short walk. Near boats and bus stops. The hotel restaurant offered lunch and dinner menus at good prices.
The breakfast could be better, for a 4 star hotel.
clean, helpful staff, seaview, location is nice
price might be too high
The location was the only good thing about this hotel and the fact they let us check out earlier than we had planned.
. Was very disappointed with the hotel. The room was tiny. The bed was rock hard and my husband and I both suffered from back ache while we were there, I also requested in advance a double bed because we were on the start of our honeymoon and we go 2 singles pushed together that kept sliding apart and forming a gap in the middle of the bed, when I complained to reception I was told that all the beds were the same and there was nothing they could do, not even a offer of maybe a blanket to put under the sheet to make it softer, basically they just did not care. The shower cubical was tiny which resulted in us constantly banging out knees and elbows while we tried to shower. my husband could barely fit into it through the door and he is a normal sized man. There was not even a proper shower head, just a open pipe that the water came through and the water did not get hot. While we were there is rained and the only English channel there was CNN news, when we enquired about this, the receptionist said all the English channels were broken and they needed to get them fixed. The TV and satellite also kept switching off. The breakfast was okay but with no variety. For the price per night of this hotel I expected allot more. We checked out a day earlier because we were so fed up and our backs were so sore and went to Naples where we booked into another hotel that was 10x as good as this one in facilities and service and a great location and allot cheaper in price.
Good location next to city metro system. Safe area. Lots of good restaurants nearby.
A little pricey for what you get. But the location was great!
Hotel La Bussola is in a perfect position overlooking the little harbour and fishing boats. It's only a short walk from the hotel to the centre of town. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and the breakfast is very good. Excellent coffee! Our rooms were spotlessly clean and refreshed daily.
The shower cubicles were quite small but overall not a big issue.
location was good,sea wiev balconies perfect.
breakfast was poor,old fashion rooms but clean.Don't go there in November because all restaurants closed.
The hotel was very well positioned close to bus stop and eating establishments. Lovely view from upper terrace. Tiles on the floors gave the hotel a very clean presentation, and they were beautiful. Very fair value for money.
We were very happy with our stay.
great location near town centre and main jetty,also room was looking over sea, and ease of walking level paths to get to hotel .balcony rooms give it a nice touch.very happy with hotel selected
The location is fantastic for those who are not mountain goats. Access to the city of Amalfi and boat and bus transportation couldn't be better.Beautiful sundeck, view from my balcony and bathroom with Vietri tile.
Mattress was too hard on my back and breakfast was a little boring but I would stay here again . After all, location, location, location!
Friendly helpful staff in family run hotel. Great location on harbour side with private pontoon.
Could be nosiy at night if windows left open. But AC good so could close them
Best location in Amalfi, near the centre, no hills, right opposite its own little boardwalk with access to the sea.
