“A nice stay in Nuku'alofa”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Not Italy nor Venice but a nice clean hotel in Tonga! Just along the foreshore with plenty of good food . A comfortable stay with nice staff and would certainly consider going back. Breakfast included and plentiful . Enjoy the 80's music while sipping a G&T on the balcony.

Room Tip: May want to book an ocean view room as the back rooms do not have a view!

We were so pleased that we chose to stay at the Little Italy Hotel during our honeymoon trip in Tonga. It was a romantic and memorable stay for myself and my husband and it definitely lived up to our expectations. Our room was great and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We hope to visit again. Thank you to all who made our stay so special and one that we will never forget.

We had two nights here with an ocean front room complete with balcony. Very nice facilities, clean room, comfortable bed. Easy to walk into town. We also had a lovely meal in the restaurant.
Breakfast was also included which was a bonus. Free wifi too!

We visited 'Little Italy' restaurant with a large group of 17 and had a great night out. After a few days of Tongan food we were very much looking forward to some Western 'Italian' food! The food was absolutely delicious and was quite good value. The set out of the restaurant is fantastic - I felt like I really was in Italy enjoying a slice of my four cheese pizza (very good!). We had a big group and all were impressed with their meals. The service was a little slow but as they say, it was 'Tongan time' and this didn't bother us too much. Check it out!

Fantastic and friendly customer service. The view is amazing on a clear sunny day! Room was very clean, had all the necessities similar to westernized accommodation - huge comfortable bed, quiet A/C, flat screen telly, good mini bar, laundry, big shower and quiet rooms. Great location to walk to town, palace and wharf. This place lives up to its reputation. Side note: if you want a raw Tongan cultural experience I wouldn't stay here. Other than that this place is faultless.

Room Tip: If you love a view like me, the price difference for a ocean view room is worth it! These were all...

We visited and did a deal on price, after a night in a crappy back packers, They let us move in at 9.00am on a Sunday morning (left a packed breakfast in our room, which blow me away!), Our room was a rear one, but we didn't care, satellite TV was a bonus. We really appreciated the air-conditioner and swimming pool. Breakfast was included and had cooked stuff, which I enjoyed. The staff were accommodating and very friendly. While we only stayed one night, we did do dinner and that was outstanding. We will be back. Suggest if you have a night or more to stay on the main island, strongly suggest you spend it here - you wont be disappointed.

More than acceptable, pleasant stay. Have stayed here on account of its good reputation and it was perfectly fine. Whilst on a main street there is no traffic noise when closed door & window, hotel staff were most accommodating. Definitely a unique place to stay with a wonderful view.

Room Tip: An Ocean view room.
