“Charming hotel with beautiful terraces and a relaxing vibe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2010

This hotel has all the best sides of a family run bed and breakfast, no kitsch, no noise, beautiful rooms, clean and comfortable, from the balcony you see the sea and the port, even books in the lobby in all possible languages and most importantly really relaxed feel.

Stayed July 2010, traveled with friends

Piccolo Hotel Luisa is an absolutely magical Italian experience… you will find yourself at home in this family-run place full of Italian charm. Rooms are very clean, comfortable and full of history… (don’t forget to ask Luisa for the interesting story of the hotel)

Staff is super-friendly and extremely accommodating. In particular, Luisa is great!!!! She had excellent suggestions for local restaurants and things to do in the area that were not in any of the typical tourist guides (ask her for renting a boat to Palmarola Island – a must do when you are in Ponza!!!).

Breakfast is included and was phenomenal with a wide assortment of cheeses, fruits, cereals and jams but the best touch was the still-warm cakes made by Luisa!! Waking up with the smell of homemade cakes and finding them for breakfast was unforgettable!!

We definitely will return to magical Ponza and the Piccolo Hotel Luisa!!!

There is little that could have prepared me and my friends for the wonderful stay we had at Hotel Piccolo Luisa. A proper family from Ponza with the "nonna" is watching every move of her grandchildren (Luisa and Gianluca who now run it), this is the BB of your dreams and indeed mine. If you know Italian islands, and Ponza in particular, then you know what a crap shot it can be. But when I finally found Hotel Piccolo Luisa, I was totally charmed. The spacious and beautifully decorated rooms in an island Sri Lanka style (they spend the Ponza winter in Sri Lanka I learned hence all the decoration and colorful bed linens) are inviting and comfy. Luisa bakes the morning's treats of cakes and focaccia. What Luisa has is also the best quality to price ratio in Ponza. Of course, the nonna is there to ensure that and when I left she was wagging her finger at Luisa saying 'remember, the customer is always right'. It could have been American level service and this also goes back to the large immigration of Ponzese to NY in the 50's. You will be very happy and do take time to hang out with Luisa's nonna!

Simple, clean rooms, nice view, friendly (family) staff, good atmosphere. A bit expensive in high season. At walking distance from port and chiaia di luna beach.

A few advises: try to go to Ponza before or after high season (August). Ponza is very crowded and much more expensive then.

The ferry from Fiumicino is a great connection if you want to go to Ponza directly (without sepnding a night in Rome). But beware: with strong wind this ferry turns into an extreme rollercoaster-like experience (imagine riding a roller coaster for 4,5 hours.... not so fun).

  • Liked — atmosphere and walking distance from shops, beach etc. Quiet at night.
  • Disliked — small room, little window with moderate view
