The breakfast at Little Italy is very high quality. Rooms are tidy and internet works really well which is great for keeping in contact while on a work trip. The staff were helpful and didn't mind getting the kayaks out for us so we could check out the reef.

Visited with my husband and young son. All of the staff were extremely friendly and patient with my noisy son. The room was nice and cleaned every day. They were organised and happy with any requests needed. We will visit again in a second it was such an affordable friendly time.

Its rooms are clean, comfortable, functional for business (desk, free wifi) and staff service is exceptional. The restaurant downstairs serves a range of food including a variety of authentic and tasty Italian pasta and pizza dishes(with generous... More

Little Italy is along the quiet seafront of Nuku'alofa near the King's palace and well away from the dirty wharf area. We were upgraded as the hotel was quiet in the low season and had 2 balconied rooms facing the sea. Breakfast was the best we got in Tonga including hot and cold options included in the room rate and... More

Great food, very popular - tables always busy despite this staff are attentive and were quick to recognise repeat customers. Prices are great too, the two is us ate for the same price for one at the big hotels! Had to queue some nights but never had to wait long.

This was our third stay at Little Italy. It is by far and away the best choice of hotels if you are staying in Nuku-alofa. The rooms are very clean and the staff are lovely. Choose a sea-view room and enjoy sitting on your private balcony. Breakfast was included for us and was a very nice smorgasbord in the restaurant... More

This hotel has great character. However it has no pool and the menu was very basic - no sea food or fish both nights we were there. On a Sunday - no cooked breakfast - just a tray for your room the night before. Great ocean views - but the beach is not a swimming beach.

I stayed three nights here and liked it. Quiet, comfortable, well located. My room was OK, the staff are super friendly and breakfast delicious. They helped me to get a car and driver to visit the island of Tongatapu. Also assisted me in booking a spot to participate in OHolei feast and show. I dinned once at the restaurant. It... More
