Piccolo Grand Hotel
Ranked #1 of 10 Hotels in Pizzo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 May 2014

The Piccolo Grand Hotel, Pizzo, Italy, is one of the jewels of southern Italy. Located a block from the town square, the facility is new and is kept exceptionally clean and the staff goes above and beyond to tend to your every need. Enjoy a private dinner on the roof top or walk 3-4 minutes to shop or eat in town. Nice views of the Mediterranean! If you stay for a week, they have several wonderful suites with kitchens that overlook the ocean and have great sun terraces. To get to Pizzo, it is a quick 20 minute train ride on a local train from Lamezia or jump in a taxi and within 25 minutes you are enjoying a "welcome to Pizzo" drink in the bar.

Room Tip: Don't let the train station sell you a ticket to Vibo-Pizzo. Buy a ticket from Lamezia to Pizzo...

We stayed here in October 2013 just before the close of season and, as other reviewers have already stated, Piccolo Grand is truly outstanding in every way. We stayed in one of the apartments which is in a separate building. Breathtaking views of the sea and so peaceful! The apartment is huge and we spent many pleasant evenings on the terrace, sipping wine and enjoying a meal cooked with fresh local ingredients bought from the little grocery shop around the corner. Breakfast was taken on the hotel terrace with delicious home made cakes baked by the lovely Carlie. All the staff were very efficient, friendly and helpful. Pizzo is a charming little seaside village and very Italian. It is a good base if one does not have a car. There is a little train station which runs up and down the coast and a bus which goes to the wonderful town of Vibo Valentia. The hotel organises local tours with brilliant Nicolette who speaks perfect English. The trip to the olive farm was excellent. Another day she tailor made a trip for us to the nearby countryside with a specialist guide and Nicolette translated for us. Piccolo Grand looked after us so well. It is the perfect place to refresh both body and mind.

It says a lot that the highlight of our trip to this breathtaking region was the hotel. Every detail and comfort has been well thought out by the owner. Truly an embodiment of casual elegance. I will never forget the views from the rooftop terrace. The colourful cushions and beautiful china made me so happy. I could have sat at breakfast all day. It was relaxed, healthy, and meticulously home-made by Kala. Vincenza, Sandra, Massimo, Gustavo were unbelievably helpful and accommodating. Hotel very easy to get to. You must have a small car. We did not, as we were travelling with 2 seniors; but Vincenza made sure things worked out for us, shuttling my elderly mother back and forth in the trusty golf cart. Pizzo grows on you. You will have it scoped out in one afternoon. Do not expect much shopping. Follow the advice of staff when choosing local restaurants. Memorable meals to be had. This is a very special place. I selfishly hope it won't get so popular that bookings become difficult, but I think this will be unavoidable given the quality of the stay. Would return in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: There are only 8. I imagine they are all good. We had adjoining rooms that were perfect for a fami...

the staff of this hotel is very friendly and accomodating, the hotel is lovely, and breakfasts and dinners there were memorable. Eating upstairs on the deck w views of the Calabrian coast are not to be missed. John and I did a month anniversary tour of Italy in 2011. We stayed here a week on recomendation of my calabrian girlfriend. We discovered the charming bakery on the right hand side at the end of the same street too late. Don't miss his Baba au rum. Location is great and the lobby and decorations are wonderful. In a town famous for tartuffo (the gelato) not the mushroom, this place is a charming wonderful find.

This is a wonderful hotel in a central location of Pizzo, very clean with amazing interior design. Staff was very friendly and most helpful, we miss them already. Breakfast with home made bread and cakes served on a terrace with spectacular sea views. Highly recommended!

I didn't really know what to expect from our hotel as we drove in to Pizzo -- a very cute coastal town that feels like it has felt the ravages of the global recession more than most. But when we walked in the Piccolo Grand Hotel, I was blown away. The place is beautiful and the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. Breakfast on the penthouse terrace is fantastic. I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a clean, well-designed space.

Room Tip: We stayed in the penthouse apartment. I would seriously consider going back to rent it for a month o...
