Hotel Bussola di Hermes

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff at the hotel were so kind and answered all our questions. The building itself is a bit of a hike from the bus stop, but takes you through some piazzas where you can see locals talking it up! Our room was spacious, but it was a bit hard to get to the toilet which was sandwiched behind the bidet and the shower. We were pleasantly surprised when we found out we could order a second cappuccino at breakfast! Yum! Overall my wife and I found Anacapri to be much more fun and relaxing and cheaper than Capri, so I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to visit the island and not break the bank too much.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. They greeted us with complimentary fruit juice which was very refreshing. After check-in the lady at the desk gave us lots of great advice on the best things to see and do in the area. In particular her restaurant recommendations were excellent. We knew in advance about the Blue Grotto and the chairlift to top of the mountain, but she gave a great recommendation that we go to Faro for a swim. Just what the doctor ordered on a very hot day. Bear in mind that it is probably about a quarter mile walk from the nearest road that a taxi can drive on. Plenty of scooter traffic, but not reachable by car. I don't know why some websites say the hotel has parking available. Not that many visitors would have a car anyway. Biggest disappointment was that we had to pay 10 euros a day to get air conditioning in the room. Even after paying for the AC we still sweated quite a bit, and we had to have them come to the room again to adjust it (the guest does not have control over the thermostat). Breakfast was also a disappointment, given that it was the most expensive hotel we stayed at in Italy.
