It is definitely not a 4 stars hotel. The room is very poorly furnished and the bed is very low quality. But the worst thing is the smell in the room. It stinks of naftalina! It made me feel sick! Good that we booked it only for 1 night, as I would run away even without refund. It is a...

Nice hotel with a beautiful view - good friendly service, rooms could use a bit of attention but overall a really lovely hotel. 1st floor balconies are stunning overlooking the sea. Staff definitely deserve 5 bubbles!

Our travel agent, Becky, at Beach Bum Vacations did an excellent job finding this hotel on the Amalfi Coast. We really didn't have a plan for our trip other than seeing Rome and one other city. She suggested Amalfi, so we went with it. It was a great small city to contrast Rome! Becky found this hotel for us on...

A well run hotel with all the amenities. It is located at the end of a cul de sac (read light traffic therefore) cobbled road from the main town area on the beach. Across the road is the Marina and a small beach. Views from our sea-side room balcony were great. Reception staff were excellent. The wifi worked well. There...

Service is very bad (first day of the year at 9am breakfast was not even prepared), rooms are at 80s 3 stars level and it is quite expensive compared to Positano. I advised the night before the car valet, and I had to...

Staff ae generally welcoming but not overly so. The room we had was extremely dated and has been mentioned on previous reviews - the bed throws were stained and the...

Trippers when in Italy and at the Amalfi coast, hotel LA bussola is great.. The staff are all friendly and in particular the kitchen staff.. Across from the hotel is your own private beach available to hotel guests only..towels provided and there are meals and drinks at an extra cost charged to the room if your feeling peckish.. Thank you...

Very nice hotel,location, staff, service,view. The room was tiny ,but the scenery made up for it . The only advice to people working at this hotel is not to recommend Capri Tour to their guests. They had recommended Lemon Tour ,Tour to Ravello, some restaurants, and we enjoyed them all. The Capri Tour was a disaster. We informed the what...
