This is a great little hotel, clean, with friendly staff, and a great restaurant on the ground floor. We walked to town along the coastal walkway and passed the palace each day to breakfast in town (about 20mins) because we liked the exercise, but we had one breakfast at the hotel and that was fine too. Great views of the... More

Stayed here for a week while running a course in the main town area. The hotel is within a longish walking distance of the main town area, facing directly out to the ocean. The rooms on the sea-facing side looked good with nice balconies, which would be delightful breakfast spots. My room was on the side of the building overlooking... More

When we first entered the room, we were disappointed- having read the reviews here, I was expecting correlation to reality- and there wasn't any. Since I am used to high standard hotels, it took some time and travel around the main island of Tonga (Tongatapu), to understand that all is relative. Don't expect high level- the hotel is more like... More

The Little Italy is a perfectly adequate hotel for leisure or business. It does seem to be a bit past is prime and could use a little more attention to detail in cleaning rooms. Wifi was fast, breakfast was included, and the bed was comfortable. We had a car but it's possible to walk downtown from the hotel.

Recommend booking a balcony room as the standard rooms at the rear of the hotel look into someone's backyard full of barking dogs & squealing pigs that keep you awake all night, ask for a room on the first floor if you find it difficult to climb stairs as there is no lift. Staff were friendly & helpful. Hotel was... More

Hotel caters for all you need but is very basic. The restaurant food is amazing. Compliments to the chef. A massive selection on menu and still very short waiting times with exquisite meals. WOW! Highly recommended.

I had the meatlovers pizza (with added pineapple) and the other 3 had the steaks - all meals were well presented and tasted good. My pizza was probably one of the best I have eaten in quite some time. The staff were accommodating - and shifted us outside easily when we requested it - due to being hot :) priced... More

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.
