Hotel Piccolo Mondo3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Rooms clean and functional. Staff friendly and helpful. Booked for a relaxing break and delivered exactly as required. Amusing broken English/Italian conversations with Roberto, Antonella and Franco, but we got through it! Lovely beach. We booked B&B, and food (the buffet breakfast) was ample. Wouldn't attempt location without a car, but wouldn't hesitate to book for a short break again.hesitate for a short break again!
Don't stay here, overpriced and dirty. Very unfriendly staff, not what you expect at all. Nowhere near worth the price. Restaurant too expensive too and not good. All in all no good experience, really feels like a rip off.
We stayed at the hotel for one night as we were travelling towards Sicily. The room was good, though there was no way my kid could get up on the bunk bed (no steps or ladder) so we ended up putting the mattress on the floor for the night. As we arrived around 7 and had not seen a lot of restaurants on the way, we decided to eat there. We were told that the restaurant which "specialises in Calabria cuisine and international dishes" only offers a set menu for 15 euros, with a choice from 2 starters, and 2 main course. We were probably the last eating at 8.30, as there were a couple of other families finishing their dinner when we went. When it came to dessert we were presented with a bowl of rotten apples and plums. When we complained, we were first told that fruit was the day's dessert. We told her that we saw other guests having some sort of gateau with ice-cream. She then went in the kitchen and came back with 2 ice-creams. She said that is all that's left, and that there was only 1 rotten apple! That incident spoiled our evening. Breakfast in the morning was good, and partly made up for the previous night. As for the view from the room, we had to keep the windows shuttered down or you have no privacy. In any way, we only had high trees in front of us, but the view from the hotel grounds is nice.

Stayed one night. Pros: Very attentive staff - best of the 12 hotels we stayed at in Italy - and we found several hotels to have very outstanding staffs. Kept kitchen open for dinner for us as we arrived just minutes before they were to close. Breakfast was outstanding, which included cook eggs, breads, and homemade cakes. Cons: Hard to find with GPS. I would stay there again if I were going back to Calabria.
The top floor rooms we had had great views out to sea, the rooms were spacious, well equiped, clean and bright with very good modern bathrooms. The food was very good and plentiful; in particular the breakfast was excellent with hot starters, croissants and a vast buffet. Drinks prices were also very reasonable.The hosts were very friendly and attentive and made everyone feel very welcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. I feel some reviews have been somewhat unfair, true the coast road (a normal 2 lane road, not 4 as claimed) does run past the front of the hotel, when we stayed it did not produce significant noise. The cliffs rise steeply immediately from the coast and the hotel is located on a very tight site on the cliff side, they have little choice of where to build, indeed, in my experience it is common to build hotels near main roads in Italy anyway.
We stayed at this Hotel out of season for 3 nights so it was very quiet. Fantastic location - balconies at front overlook sea and busy road - if the noise from the road worries you ask for a room at rear overlooking mountains. Short walk to the beach but need a car as no restaurants shops etc close by. Proprietors very welcoming, breakfast good choice of pastries breads ham eggs cheese etc. Dinner preshly prepared good local Italian dishes (huge portions) Well worth chosing halfboard option. Overall for the price this an excellent establishment
It should be nice vacancies in the South of Italy, a cozy hotel with local flair and food. We could easily find the hotel by car. It was located directly at the main coastal road SS18 with heavy traffic even at night. The railway is some 20m more downhill but does not make too much noise. Watching the sea from the tiny balcony you can see the beautiful sea and - count the cars. The rooms are clean, the staff was friendly. To the public beach you have 15 min to walk. The private beach is called Lido blu – 4 min by car. It is clean, an umbrella plus two sun chairs you get for 5,50 Euro/day. WLAN works in the hotel only in lower floors. There is a small terrace to sit in the evening mostly on plastic chairs. Breakfast and dinner – the worst I ever have eaten in Italy. Unfortunately, in September most restaurants in the surrounding are closed. The hotel was complete. Probably, other people have fewer problems with hotel conditions than we had. The second week we spent in a typical hotel – all was excellent.
Stayed at this hotel over Christmas and I think we were the only guests in the hotel. The owners were very helpful, the room was clean with a balcony with a sea view. They made us feel rather special in the hotel on Christmas Day and cooked us a lovely evening meal just for us. I would recommend this hotel for people with a car as the only safe route to the town and the beach is travelling on the busy coastal road (no pavement).
We stopped here for a night on a trip down the coast. Everything was good - service, room, breakfast. Only small negative was noise from the road, but it wasn't loud enough to keep us awake so wasn't really a problem.
