I spent 5 days in Pienza while exploring the Southern Part of Tuscany. This small hotel has a good location, but more importantly the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast is provided and is good. De rooms are a good size, very clean and with good facilities. Thank you for a great stay! Siamo contentissimi.

I can't say enough superlatives about the Arca. We stayed for four nights and everything was perfect. The building itself and the furnishings are plain, but it is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It's a 2-3 minute walk from the historic district of Pienza, an ideal location. The rooms are spacious and at least the ones in the rear have... More

We stayed here for one night in May, and it was one of our favorites of the hotels from our 10-day trip to Tuscany. The room was lovely (very clean and comfortable), and even had a small private terrace. We appreciated the free wifi and the fact that there was free parking in the lot across the street. The hotel... More

We stayed in this hotel only one night, and chose it thanks to the TripAdvisor recommendations, which were fully justified! Very clean and well-appointed, friendly and courteous staff, great location, excellent breakfast.

This hotel was a fantastic find in Pienza. We were able to base ourselves here comfortably, explore Pienza and surrounding Tuscan countryside without car parking hassles. The car park is free, large and across the road from the hotel. Easy access in and out. The historic town is 2 min walk. Our room was well furnished and very comfortable with... More

This hotel is located in Pienza, two minutes walk from the ancient town and major attractions. The rooms are great and very clean. The service attentive and the breakfast is fantastic. The only little negative point would be the parking (we arrived by car); it is advertised as free and it is if you can find a free spot in... More

Very nice small hotel running by one family, hosts are very friendly and attentive, we felt ourselves like we were family guests not hotel guests. The room was lovely, with beautiful terrace (unfortunately the weather didn't allow us to enjoy it). The old town is in 2 minutes walk distance.

While the room itself was small, it had a patio- garden area. Breakfast was a small buffet and owners were friendly. The town is known for its pecorino cheese and the shops featured it. Charming walks in and around the small town, worthy of a short visit.

It is located about 10-min walk away from town center of Pienza. There's a petrol kiosk opposite of it and a small Coop supermarket right next to it. This family-run place served good quality breakfast and the lady owner who couldn't speak a lot of Englsih was very patient to explain the direction to town and internet access to us.... More
