Fabulous 8.6 From 116 reviews

Good 6.0
Wanted to love it but didn't
Superb location. Dated and expensive hotel. Staff friendliness was hit or miss. Asked for an iron and they said only housekeeping could iron my shirt. But it was silk so I wanted to do it myself but they refused to let me. I said I would even come downstairs and pay to have it done but I wanted to do it myself. "No" was the answer, no suggestions or recommendations on how I could get it ironed. There was no A/C turned on in the rooms and the radiator was on. It was during a very warm phase in May and it's too close to the street too keep the doors open the whole time. The wifi was abysmal to non-existent. This could be a lovely boutique type hotel but they probably see so many tourists they don't bother.

Poor 2.0
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!
