Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel la Bussola Amalfi
This was our second visit to Amalfi. After looking at the website for the hotel, we were looking forward to our stay. Our reception to the hotel was anything but warm. The room was lovely with a beautiful view of the Amalfi coast. We were with a group of 30. Our service at dinner was rude and rushed. The food was nothing to return for. We had reservations for 3 nights. On the second evening we were given a written notice from the hotel to vacate our room after breakfast the next morning. The hotel would assist in changing our room or move us to another hotel. Our group decided it would be better to leave. Needless to say, we will never return to this hotel.
Location, Location, Location!
We stayed at the La Bussola Hotel for a week in June 2004 to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The room was clean and pleasant, and it overlooked the harbor. The hotel is an easy walk to buses and ferries, as well as the town center. You don't need a car here, as you can easily get to Positano, Sorrento, etc., by ferry or bus. They apparently don't put up the beach umbrellas and chairs on the bathing dock until mid-June, but there is a lovely deck upstairs overlooking the harbor with lounge chairs. It's a lovely place, and we plan to return.
This location is supurb.
A three minute walk to town and the sea at your doorstep. We had a room with the boardwalk and beach. There is air-conditioning, but most nights there is a wonderful breeze from the sea. We are planning a return trip next year.
Excellent location nearby shopping, restaurants, cafes, busses, ferries, etc.! The hotel is spacious and very clean. Breathtaking view from balconies. The staff is very professional and friendly. The only two disadvantages: there was no air-conditioning and it can get a bit noisy in the evening. Although we stayed there in June and we did not really need the air-conditioning. Despite the disadvantages, we enjoyed our visit and would stay at the Bussola again.
Well-positioned, only a few steps away from the seashore, near the renowned 11th century cathedral, the Hotel La Bussola is endowed with panoramic balconies and refined tapestries and furniture, the guest will benefit and enjoy the fresh and Mediterranean hospitality
Great Hotel - a bit noisy
Stayed at La Bussola in May 03. The hotel is easily accessible right on the harbour in Amalfi, a few minutes walk to the boat quay and the church. There is an underground car park which is very useful as visitor parking is limited in Amalfi. The hotel is large, bright and clean, staff are friendly. Our room was spacious and beautifuly designed with majorica floor tiles and a balcony over looking the sea.
My only qualm was the noise from the road at night (scooters, lorries) and we were woken by the high speed ferries arriving in the harbour most mornings. On the whole, I would go back to the Bussola.
Hotel La Bussola had a great location..just about a 3 minute walk to the main shopping and restaurant area. The hotel was very nice and provided breakfast in the main dining room. The room was simple and had a balcony. My only complaint would be that there was no air conditioning which was definitely important in July! Otherwise, I would highly suggest this hotel for the money!
Last minute arrival
We were in Italy for the first time and on our Honeymoon. We had read about the Amalfi Coast and wanted to see it. Not really understanding the hotels in the area we had no idea were to stay. It was late at night and came on the hotel La Bussola. They had a room and it was great. Nothing fancy but the view and the sounds from the harbor were so romantic. I can't wait to go back and stay again and relive our honeymoon. We had no aggenda then and won't this time either.

... it. What a bust. We got to the top and there wasn't much. And the kicker, the bus would t be back for another hour so we hopped back in and went back down. The cool thing we did see was all the citrus orchards. There are a ton of lemon trees in Sorrento, but there's even more here. They're all covered, I think to keep the birds out. The trees that aren't covered have lemons on them, but no leaves. I'm thinking the pesky birds eat them. Back in Amalfi we got back on the bus ...
... on the A1 for about 480kms, making several stops for breaks at various Autogrills situated along the route. They are well advertised to warn drivers how many kms ahead one is situated. Really good quality food, great variety, great coffee, great cornettos and pastries and fantastically clean (free) bathrooms, and then attached to them are the service stations for refuelling.

... Mike particularly enjoyed this part of the day :) ), we ended up back at the shop where the shop keeper knew Kitchener and made some purchases. We also enjoyed lunch in Ravello, outdoors at a cafe overlooking the church. A jazz quartet entertained us while we ate - they went from cafe to cafe, and, of course, asked for donations at the end. They were quite good though. By now, it was starting to drizzle a bit, and we were ready to hop on the bus back to Amalfi... Along ...
... for a beach on the other side of the island. When I got there I saw a big rock like an island and I relaxed on it. The water was crystal clear and there were lots of deck chairs on the beach. Mum and Dad watched us from a rocky balcony over hanging the water.
When we got back to Sorrento for the night Will and I played on the beach and Mum and Dad had a drink with Michelle and Allan.
