We had three nights at this hotel. Dinner was a godfather pizza. Luckily we didn't go for the large as there was more than enough for two after a Sunday family feast. Our room had a great view. There was always something to see. Pigs rooting for seafood or roaming along the street. Of course dogs wander buy. The staff... More

We stayed there for 2 nights before flying back to SYD and the 1st night we had pizza at the restaurant downstairs. I'm very picky about pizza, being of italian descent, but I must say it was actually very good. The room is nice and spacious and the balcony overlooks the shore with nice colors at sunset.

We were here only two nights, one of them being Sunday. Only church happens Sunday in Tonga. But fortunately we had arranged a tour by car. Saying all this as a preface to service on a Sunday vs. other days. Sunday breakfast was delivered to room and the restaurant opened to guests that night. That was it, but we knew... More

After coming from the Cook Islands (Rarotonga), Nuku'alofa was a little disappointing in that it was quite dirty in and around the capital. Little Italy is supposedly the best hotel on the island, but it's still quite basic. It has a nice restaurant at the bottom where you also have breakfast, and all the staff were polite and welcoming. I... More

We checked out today at 10.30 am and left our bags for return and taxi booked 12 noon to take us to the airport. While waiting I asked to use the bathroom but no I was not allowed into the restaurant to use... More

We stayed 9 nights in this hotel. The rooms are clean, beds comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful. Sometimes there English is not too good and you certainly have to wait for things you order as they are never in a hurry. We hired a car from little Italy which is very handy. Also worth going on day... More

Nice and quite hotel in Nuku'alofa. Very clean rooms and nice breakfast. Very friendly staff. Pizzas are great. WiFi works very well. We spent just one night since there is not much to do in this town.

We spent one night here after arriving on a late flight. At 10pm the staff were friendly and welcoming and helped settle us in, although there were no restaurant or bar facilities open. Room was clean and tidy and adequate for the one night stay. Very good breakfast and worth having. Close enough to walk into town.

Nuku'alofa in Tonga runs on Pacific Time, and there is nothing wrong with that. The Little Italy Hotel also operates in the same time zone but given that they are rated as a 4 star hotel, they need to lift their game. The rooms are clean, the staff friendly and the food fair. It is well located, with wonderful views... More
