It was delightful staying at the Busoola hotel, I would definitely recommend this hotel. The staff is friendly, attentive to your needs. It is a very clean hotel, and the lobby is a great place to sit and relax.

Aircon barley worked and it took hours to get the room cold. The doors/isolation in the rooms were very thin and we woke up multiple times hearing people in the corridor outside or in the rooms next door. Otherwise an ok hotel with good location and views.

10/10 Exceptional

My wife is recovering from back surgery and has difficulty walking and climbing steps. This Amalfi Hotel, The La Bussola, is on the Main Street along the water front. There are six steps up to the main floor and two elevators to the other 4 floors. When we walked about 500 feet from the ferry landing to the front of the La Bussola, hotel staff was waiting to help us with our luggage and the entrance steps. Entering the lobby we were met as old friends by Lucianna who had answered several of my wife’s inquiries. She set the highest standard of service which was met by all other on the staff from room cleaners to restaurant personnel. Our room was extraordinary clean and am decorated. The flooring was ceramic tile with accents of local flowers. Our room as all rooms had a small balcony over looking the Amalfi Promenade and bay. Several time we needed assistance with scheduling activities. The staff immediately attended to our request. I can only say that it was one of my best experiences among those I’ve had in my 82 years and 40 countries visited.

4/10 Fair

The hotel has a great old charm to it. However, it was quite noisy outside. The noise started at 5am with barking digs and motorists. The housekeeping started at 7am with moving furniture and lots of banging. The hotel was clean but has an awful smell in the evening of rotten egg. The size of the room was fantastic and the location was convenient.

8/10 Very good

Very close to bus and ferry terminals - very convenient to use as a base to go to Ravello, Maiori, Minori and close by islands. Helpful staff who provided good information on tourist spots and transport connections. Wifi in room is very weak - best to use internet in breakfast area or lobby.
