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.

We stayed here in July. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, especially when my partner had trouble getting WiFi. The location was great and our room on the second floor offered splendid views over the sea. The decor was a little dated, but comfortable bed and adequate storage for cases and clothes. The air-conditioning a little disappointing as...

La Bussola is more than a 4 star hotel; with a friendly staff who goes out of their way to please. Our room #353 had ocean front view. It was on the third floor, I highly recommend it. The hotel includes fast wi fi, free in the rooms and throughout the hotel. Delicious Buffett breakfast is included with the price...

After a long day's travelling and a stay in a 3 star hotel, I was looking forward to our 4 star experience at La Bussola. It was easy to find and we were impressed by its location. The receptionist was welcoming and saw us up to our room, arranging for our bags to follow. The view from the balcony is...

We had a great family vacation in Italy and stayed at Hotel La Bussola in Amalfi. The entire staff was extremely helpful and pleasant, especially Mena and Vincenzo who I dealt with a lot . The room had a balcony with a great view of the ocean. Amalfi is a great little Italian town with a lot of great restaurants....

The seafront view of this hotel is stunning. Most rooms offer a balcony opening onto a picture perfect ocean view. There is a rooftop terrace where the guests can relax. The rooms are clean and pleasant. The breakfast buffet offers good variety and quality. The hotel is located within walking distance of everything in Amalfi.

The view of the marina and the promenade from our balcony window was like the front row seat of one of the best theatres in the world. In the morning I would open the shutters and there were bobbing boats, early morning passers-by and the sight and smell of the sea. The roof terrace has a fabulous view of Amalfi...
