Booked off the internet so can confirm positive reviewers were right this is a very pleasant little gem in Catanzaro Lido. We booked a sea view room and got that plus balcony, nice toiletries and slippers. Not a chain so hotel owners on site gives it a warm and friendly feel with attention to detail and every effort made to... More

I stayed at Grand Hotel Paradiso for a couple of days in June and had an excellent stay. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the fact that the owner, Signore Paradiso himself, was around and just as attentive as his staff gives this hotel a familiar atmosphere. He always offered a lift to the beach/train station even though it... More

If you are looking for a quiet place and comfortable stay for your vacation in Catanzaro, this hotel is perfect. Minutes' walk away from the town center, where you will find nice walk along the beach or the sea and good pubs and restaurants. The hotel owner is very nice and staff are all very friendly, polite and helpful. The... More

On arrival in Grand Hotel Paradiso, the management offered us an upgrade without additional cost: I booked a Junior suite an got a real suite instead. Very nice of them. The hotel is not very close to the center of Catanzaro Lido, you need a car to get to the beach.Walking is not really an alternative because the roads to... More

They say in the room brochure that this is a 5 star hotel. Well it isn't, it is a 3 at most. A 5 star would provide a room service menu, not just say it offers it. There would be chairs on the balcony to enjoy the sea views, there wasn't. They would even provide a number in the room... More

Symbolically one of the 4 stars on the facade of this hotel is missing. Although the hotel seems to be relatively new, it is build completely without any charme or imagination! Everything is a little depressing to look at. The aircon in my room couldn't be switced off and the sink in the bathroom hadn't been cleaned since the previous... More

First I chose this hotel based upon the reviews. I wanted a nice hotel, with a spa and parking, since I would be driving. Parking is free and right in front of the hotel, which was convenient. Overall i had a very nice time at this hotel and the staff were very courteous and helpful. I will break my comments... More

Classy new hotel with modern and classy facilities. Friendly and helpful staff both in reception and the restaurant. The food was excellent - breakfast was a good selection and the dinner menu also varied. The pool was excellent. It was a nice touch for the owner to make a point of saying hello to all guests who were in the... More

We had an excellent time during our one week stay at Paradiso. The hotel itself was impeccable, the food delicious and the room couldn't be any nicer. The pool and the wellness center were really nice, and we really enjoyed the view from our window from which everyday we would see free roaming horses in the meadows overlooking the beach.... More
