Hotel la Bussola


The Bussola Hotel is in the centre of Amalfi and the Amalfi Coast.

It is situated on Lungomare dei Cavalieri,16 on the sea front. Saint Andrew’s Cathedral, the bus station and the port, from which you can take a boat or the hydrofoil, are walking distance from the hotel.

The Bussola (the compass) is not only the name of our hotel but also a reminder or our ancestors who introduced the compass to the rest of Europe. The name is also appropriate as we still continue today to act as a guide to our guests.

For centuries Amalfi has been the crossroads for commerce and culture, thanks to the initiative of its traders and the wise diplomacy of its rulers/governers. The “Amalfitani”, in fact maintained constant relations with inhabitants from all over the Mediterranean and it was due to these connections that the secrets of navigation were revealed to the rest of the world. The diffusion of the compass, from which the name of our hotel derives, is traditionally attributed to the “Amalfitani” who were also the first to write the laws of navigation and commerce which were adopted by the other states within the Mediterranean.

Today Amalfi and the Amalfi Coast are the favourite destinations of thousands of tourists all over the world. This is because they are guaranteed a holiday where they can enjoy the beauty of the region which has remained intact along with highly professional tourist services.
