spotless third floor room with balcony giving uninterrupted sea views, a very varied breakfast, free afternoon tea, a private garage - what more could you ask for! Charming staff and an unrivalled position help make this hotel a real gem. Pay the extra for a third floor room - it's worth it.

This hotel was in a perfect location right on the beach. The staff was nice and very helpful. You could walk everywhere. The room was a little dated but for what it was, it was well worth the money spent.

We stayed at Piccolo Lido whilst on our honeymoon in September 2013. I have family who live in Bordighera and they recommended this hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the front desk staff spoke good English. The restaurant we thought was basic but our meal was still nice. The breakfast included was very nice each morning. And... More

Placed just by the sea! Of course the rooms not facing the sea won't be so attractive. Great restaurant at the hotel and very helpful staff. The city is slowly closing down, since there is not so many tourists any more!

I stayed here for a week in July 2014, and enjoyed it greatly. The owners evidently take pride in their hotel, and run it with charm & efficiency. No detail is overlooked, and the reception staff give good advice about exploring the Italian Riviera. The location is perfect, situated 10 minutes' walk from the centre of Bordighera, and with restaurants... More

We stayed here for three nights in April 2014. We booked the hotel after reading reviews at Tripadvisor and we chose Bordighera following an article in a Swedish newspaper, describing it as an old fashioned Italian resort. We had a de luxe room with sea view on the third floor with a half moon balcony overlooking the Mediterranean in 180... More

This is a friendly little place (except for one male receptionist who was very rude to my wife) and is in an idyllic spot right on the promenade of this charming town. Beds and pillows a bit hard but room spotless. Toiletries/tea coffee very basic. We stayed in January and the heating was more than adequate - in fact we... More

We had a week in this hotel at the end of September. We chose a superior room with sea view and had a room right at the end of the hotel. Great views, superb terrace. Breakfast plentiful, hotel staff accommodating and friendly. Fantastic location as we could sleep with the doors to the terrace open and hear the sea. Great... More

Wonderfully situated right at the beach in Bordighera, with such a nice and pleasant atmosphere. Pretty decoration and a terrific terrasse at the roof. Very comfortable rooms and bathrooms. The staff ever so helpfull and friendly. Breakfast excellent, and you can take it on the terrasse, right in front of the sea. A place you want to go back to.

We booked late so we could only get a room in the ground floor. But we had sea view anyway. I believe most, or all, rooms are with a sea view, and if you book from first floor and up it is also with a small balcony. the rooms are reasonable big and everything functions well and is in good... More
