In my opinion it would be a waste to visit Pienza and stay at an ordinary hotel (there are a couple nearby). This place is different and suits the romantic atmosphere of this charming hilltop town perfectly. It's in an old building with interesting history; high ceilings and thick walls. It's also inside the city walls and five minutes from... More

My husband and I were booked to stay at this hotel in October for our birthdays. However, my husband is relocating with his employer from the UK to the US. We are therefore not able to honour this booking. After explaining this situation to Booking.com and the hotel, they were not prepared to budge on their cancellation policy. As my... More

Andrew B's review describes this accommodation really well. It's more of a room rental rather than a hotel but is a great way to stay within the centre of Pienza. I really enjoyed our stay here because of the freedom that comes with effectively renting a room. We stayed on one of the 1st floor rooms which opened onto an... More

Stayed in the Antica Locanda for three nights in late June 2013. The place is a delight - rustic, charming and characterful. It is well furnished and equipped, and impeccably clean and well maintained. The rooms vary in dimensions and aspect, from the splendid three room apartment on the top floor which we were allocated, with postcard views over the... More

We stayed in the Locanda for 4 days, It was a lovely place and the lady was really pleasant. Although she does not speak english, she got out of her way to help in any way. After all we were in Italy and did not expect everybody to speak english. I was really upset when I read the negative review... More

We spent here three nights in April and we were absolutely impressed by this B&B therefor it is highly recommended for those who are as keen on rustic, charming and characteristic accommodations as we are. (If you prefer large spaces and modernity, you are not cut out for this B&B.) Our room was small but clean, charming and it had... More

We stayed here 2 nights on our 2 week trek through Tuscany. After reading the reviews it was the place we stayed that I was most concerned about, as we had a lot of luggage and the stairs did not excite me. I was also concerned about the language barrier. My fears were for naught. We were able to stay... More

This was the worst three nights during our 2.5 week traveling in Italy! Check in was ok, even the host didn't speak any English. The B&B is a like a dorm - no kitchen, no living room and no common space at all. We were given an attic room with a tiny window (with a view). Half of the room... More

My wife and I travelled to Pienza in April 2012 and stayed at Antica Locana. We could not have chosen a better place. We rented an apartment with a kitchen but also had the opportunity to view all the other rooms available. Every accomodation was different, comfortable, squeaky clean and welcoming. The location was perfect and we foud it hard... More

When we asked locals in Tuscany "where should we go next?", people would say "Pienza" and then sigh. And so, we booked two nights in this hotel last minute on advice of TripAdvisor. Upon arrival - on a Saturday late afternoon, parking was difficult to find (note others have advised to be cautious of Pienza parking) and we learned we... More
