We spent a week in Amalfi for our wedding in June. I was in email contact with Mena for many months planning the menu, rooms, hairdresser-everthing! She was always very attentive and helpful. The hotel is in a great location within easy walking distance to the cathedral. The rooms were clean and authentic with lovely tiled floors. All the staff...

The hotel was located in an excellent location, and the staff overall worked hard to make sure that your needs were accommodated. I would recommend this place to others, and would stay here again should the opportunity arise. They do try to steer you toward certain things that I think they get a commission on, so beware. Overall it is...

This is a nice hotel in a wonderful setting. Our sea facing room, plus partial view for the kids looked great and the trip started wonderfully...until we tried the air conditioning during a major heat wave. Generally we skip the AC but it was hot and as the night progressed, some terrible smells that seemed to be raw sewage filled...

I stayed with a friend of mine at this place. Location is superb and the service is great. The people at the hotel were really friendly. Breakfast could have been a bit better, but that's a minor detail.

I love this place! The warm family-feel, the perfect location – what else does one need in Amalfi. Hotel La Bussola was the 4th and final stop during our European stay. We researched dozens of hotels. Our Amalfi requirements: Location, Location, Location -- a nice place in town, on the beach, easy to book tours, with free Wi-Fi, air conditioning,...

The hotel sits right on the sea front and has lovely views over the marina. The a/c in our room didn't work properly so it wasn't very comfortable and generally I'd say that it is a bit dated. It was very noisy as well.

We stayed here for 11 nights in July and had a prestige room on the 1st floor with a large terrace balcony which we really made full use of and would highly recommend. The hotel itself is in a fantastic location and this really is the main selling point, located on the waterfront just 250m from the main square and...

We were here for two nights in three rooms--a triple, a double and a twin. All were superior with water views. The place is a little quirky--'70s style furnishings. But, the rooms were comfortable and the views were wonderful. More importantly, the location was perfect. In three minutes we could walk to the Amalfi Duomo and main piazza. Two minutes...

This is a great hotel. It is very much 1970's but in a cool way. The hotel is very clean and on the waterfront with great views of the marina. The staff was very helpful. We had a few problems with wifi but the staff was quick to help.
