I booked a reservation here and then my travel plans changed. I emailed the hotel (several weeks in advance... well within the cancellation policy) to cancel the room and got no response, even though I was following the cancellation instructions on their website. I tried three more times, still no response. When I returned from my trip and got my... More

The Arca di Pienza is highly recommended. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need – including a comfortable bed, a nice bathroom and either a balcony or a terrace outside. Prices are reasonable and the location is perfect, only a few minutes on foot to the pedestrian streets in the historic centre. Breakfast is included and the coffee... More

This was a good small hotel up in Pienza Italy in Tuscany. It was clean, the rooms well appointed and all fully ensuited. Breakfast was included in the reasonable price. It is not a big selection but quite adequate. All the rooms have doors opening I to a terrace area of their own or shared with another room. We had... More

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.
