Close to Anacapri central. Friendly staff, clean room and bathroom. Comfortable bed. Towels a bit on the scratchy side but no biggie. Overall, my wife and I had a great, memorable experience. Cristian is a great guy! We will be back, for sure!

I truly believe that all these glowing reviews are because the staff is so friendly and incredibly accommodating and helpful. That being said it makes me feel bad to complain but as someone who takes reviews into account when staying somewhere I owe it to my fellow travelers to point out major flaws/characteristics of this hotel. First of all in...

A great hotel and much much better to stay in Anacapri than Capri itself . Much less touristic . And the chairlift ...what fun. You can easily get to the main town and explore the ruins of Caligula's Villa Giove . It's a spectacular site . The walk there from the main town is just a delight . Also only...

We stayed here for one night while in Anacapri. They are simpler accommodations, but the bed was comfortable, the shower was hot, and the view was incredible. Very nice for the price. The service was fantastic too; breakfast was served, there was transportation to the dock, and they were eager to answer our questions. It is a little hard to...

We enjoyed our stay here. The hosts could not have been more accommodating and friendly. They were very knowledgable and helpful regarding things to do in the area. The room was fine and the wifi worked very well. Location was ok - a very quiet residential area yet only short walk up to the main section of Anacapri. Breakfast was...

We had a great time at Rita's. Her and the staff are incredibly helpful, they accommodated every single request from us, making us feel welcome. Our room was clean and the bed comfortable. The position of the B&B it's ideal if you want to visit Anacapri; really close to the city centre, and to other amenities. Bus stops for Grotta...

Rita and her family and team made our holiday so special. From the moment we were collected from the port, experienced the hair raising journey up to the hotel, right until the moment we were dropped back we were made to feel welcome and cared for. The hotel itself was a calm, peaceful oasis. The pool was idyllic and we...

I stayed here for 3 nights and it was worth absolutely every single penny! Rita, the owner, was unbelievably kind and helpful. She took a map of the island and told my friend and I exactly what to do on the island, and if it hadn't been for her I'm sure I would've missed out on the chair lift and...

Very welcoming and helpful staff, we came to Hotel Bussola on holiday and it was absolutely beautiful, the hotel staff were always there to help you out, one of the best holidays our family has been on. The view as we woke up in our room was outstanding and we couldn't believe our eyes. Thanks Rita.

The main thing that struck us about Hotel Bussola was how hard all the staff worked! Rita worked tirelessly to make sure we were comfortable, found everything we needed on the island and made sure we caught our ferry to Amalfi on time! The hotel itself is lovely in a beautiful spot on Anacapri, perfect for watching sunsets and is...
