Room was ok, it is an old monastery! A few things could be done to improve the rooms, i.e. updating the bed frame, I suffered several bruises due to the large frame of the bed, another mirror, the only one was in the bathroom. Having said that, the hotel rooms were very quiet and we had an enjoyable week in... More

Just in the heart of Pienza, close to the dome and to Piccolomini palace, this hotel is in the buildings of a former monastery, accessible through the cloister. The place is quiet and solemn. We got a very spacious room, with a very high wooden ceiling. Breakfast was very good and various. Staff ok. Recommended

We had a very relaxing week-end in this place, the room was tidy, very confortable and wide. Breakfast was rich and all the staff was very kind! We had a spectacular view on Val D'Orcia. We advise this Relais!

I was a group of 4 ladies travelling with Canadian Woman Traveller in late Sept when I stayed here. We had 3 rooms and all were very different....didn't seem to matter whether single or double. One single was huge with awesome bathroom. One single was very small but quaint. And the one I shared was lovely, a nice size for... More

This hotel is well located, in town but with rooms off the main drag. The public spaces of the hotel are spectacular. The restaurant has the best dinner in town of many excellent restaurants and you eat outdoors overlooking the valley. The rooms are spacious, but the least satisfactory part of the hotel: the beds are hard, the wall unit... More

Stayed at this hotel for two nights in a deluxe double room. I think the "deluxe" part was for the views of the valley each morning. But there was nothing deluxe about the very small room and the pigeons scratching around in the ceiling. No, really. The pigeons need to go. While some might see them as cute and all... More

One of the most undiscovered, beautiful places to stay. We had a fantastic honeymoon in this typically beautiful traditional italian hotel. All the staff were really friendly and made you feel welcome in particular the ladies at breakfast! The junior suite offered beautiful views of the hidden streets and treasures of Pienza. Both lunch and tea were a lovely example... More

Can't say enough about the beautiful views from the restaurant. Was supposed to get the view room but ended up looking at the alleyway and into someone else's window. Had to scale three flights with bags. Hair dryer did not work for all four days despite repeated notifications to front desk. Breakfast just OK.
