Avoid La Bussola at all costs! Anywhere is better!
La Bussola was by far the worst of all hotels on our European tour. This Rated 4 Star Hotel... is not even a 2 Star hotel! No Doorman, No Concierge, No security, extremely poor/no wifi, One English TV channel and it didn’t work, repair attempted, response...oh well! Spoke to manager about poor/no wifi...explained we have a daughter who just had surgery and needed the wifi to communicate with her as calls to US are expensive. He told us it’s not his problem it’s ours! The nerve... if he was the manager he should be fired! If owner even worse! Free hot/cold buffet breakfast was the worse! A card with added charges for cooked eggs! (See pic) Tables set with a knife and spoon... no forks! Waiters were busy putting forks on buffet table and making service absent. A dirty milk carafe (See Photo) made us pass on dinner at the hotel restaurant which was empty most nights. At over $400 a nite it was unacceptable. Other guests were also heard complaining. Fortunately wifi in a little restaurant across the street worked perfectly, two FaceTime calls simultaneously, no problem. The only thing going for this place is the view and proximity to Amalfi center & 2 nice counter workers. The mattress, like sleeping on granite. After two days was thankful for pain meds. The bathroom, size of a closet. The shower/tub barely able to accommodate this 5’7” traveller. The tub so high to get into was a fall hazard waiting to happen! Don’t believe internet pics! BS, I highly recommend somewhere else!

Very Good8.0
so so hotel for an amazing city
The Amalfi Coast was amazing, better than any picture you have seen. I recommend avoiding summer - way too busy. The hotel was waterfront, amazing views. But definitely an older hotel, beds only so so and towels not comfortable at all.

Nice find in Amalfi
Hotel La Bussola is very conveniently located. We were able to walk from the ferry right to the hotel. The reception staff was very accommodating and helpful. The room was quite warm and the a/c was minimal, the bathroom ceiling was in need of repair, and the shower stall very tiny - but all in all the room was clean and comfortable. We had a small balcony overlooking the port and there was a "bathing dock" just outside the front door to lounge and take a dip in the water. The room fee came with breakfast and dinner (or lunch). The first night was so so, but the breakfast and the second night dinner was really good. Again the staff at reception was very helpful getting us a taxi, storing our luggage and giving us suggestions on how to spend our day.
