Loved the hotel, loved the friendly staff and loved Pizzo - the town is slightly worn round the edges but ever so charming - right down to the church bells - none of which actually chime on the hour.

The owners of the hotel really know what they are doing when laying out the rooms, everything where it should be and of the highest standard.

We had room 9 on the top floor overlooking the sea and with its own terrace - fantastic. Although it was the first week in October we had really warm weather - which all helped us have a great week's holiday at the Piccolo.

As for the staff they were all so friendly and helpful. A special mention for Carla and her wonderful breakfasts. However, one night we opted to stay at the hotel and have Carla prepare a meal for us. It was the best meal of the whole week. So if you want a really well prepared meal don't miss out on having one of Carla's dinners. A big thank you to everyone at the Piccolo, we can't wait to come again.

The Piccolo Grand stands out as a subtly illuminated jewel in the workaday town of Pizzo.It is situated down a narrow (1 car width) street, close to the main piazza, so handy for bars, restaurants, pizzerias etc. It is a small 12 bedroomed boutique hotel which has been creatively and tastefully designed with lots of attention to detail; brilliant white walls, bright contrasting furnishings, marble steps, vividly coloured artwork, soft pastel lighting and quirky murals. Our room, No 6, overlooked the main street with views over the rooftops to the sea. The room, as was the whole hotel, was immaculately maintained; very clean with beautiful matching furnishings. Although the room was on the small side, there was adequate storage and the adjoining shower room, also quite compact was well maintained and very clean. A small balcony overlooked the street below but was not large enough for any seating. We could not access any English speaking channels on the TV, but had good free wi-fi access in all areas of the hotel. A star feature of the Piccolo Grand has to be the rooftop terrace where breakfast was served. It was beautifully set out, again very stylish and comfortable. Karla, who managed the terrace area, made breakfast to order; great coffee, freshly made juices, eggs cooked to order, delicious home made cakes and there was an abundance of good quality breakfast food from cereal to cold meats. We enjoyed our stay very much. It was quite an upmarket hotel for Pizzo and more expensive than most others, but it did provide excellent quality. The staff were friendly and keen to offer help and advice. One thing to be aware of is the limited parking. The staff were helpful in guiding us to a vacant slot when we returned after a day's sightseeing but the streets are very narrow so the smaller the car, the better!
After a recommendation from another hotel guest we had dinner in the main piazza, (the restaurant with orange table clothes! - ) pretty basic food - pizza and pasta - but it was delicious and inexpensive. The local Negromare wine is worth looking out for as is the tartufo dessert.

We thank you very much for your comment. We know that our strong point is the terrace where each morning our guest are served a plentiful buffet breakfast of fresh fruit, Kala's cakes, cold cuts and other tasty things. As the hotel is situated in the historic centre is not possible to reach us with a big car of course but the public parking area are not fair from here. We hope to have the opportunity to meet you in Pizzo again. Grazie!

Yes, it really is as good as everybody says. I think there are 2 reasons, maybe 3. First, the hotel is so well designed. There's more to great design than just putting a few quirky items in a room. I sense that a great deal of thought has gone into this hotel, including details like the lighting, mirrors, etc., making it very user-friendly. Second, what a great team of people! We couldn't have felt more welcome and, as everyone comments, the breakfasts on the terrace are wonderful. And finally, the location is ideal - in a quiet street but close to the centre of Pizzo and its cafes, restaurants, etc. This is a seriously good hotel!

My second stay here: wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Pizzo. Very central, but quiet:beautifully decorated and very well-appointed (with a spectacular roof terrace); charming, very helpful staff; delicious breakfasts - couldn't resist Carla's cakes! - and all extremely good value. Highly recommended!

Nestling in the heart of Pizzo, this charming hotel is a perfect choice for a quiet weekend to unwind. Nothing is too much trouble. Helpful staff take an obvious pride in the standards they achieve. The rooms are spotless and ours had a quiet private terrace looking over the rooftops. The terrace on the top floor must have one of the finest views in Pizzo, where one can enjoy a peaceful leisurely breakfast or just watch the fishing boats against the backdrop of Stromboli.

I have little hesitation in recommending this excellent hotel, and am looking for a reason to return soon.

We absolutely loved this hotel. Upon arrival, we were greeting by friendly staff and offered a drink as it was very hot. Once we had checked in, we were driven back to fetch our car and shown where to park it free of charge not far from the hotel. The rooms were excellent. Great air-conditioning, great beds, great pillows and first class facilities (ie. bathroom, etc). We also had a little terrace but didn't use it as we preferred sitting in the piazza or at the beach! Cannot highly recommend this little boutique hotel enough....!
p.s. my only small complaint was that wifi was not available in the room.
