This delightful hotel is located just a five-minute walk from Pienza's old city and its restaurants and shops, but it's also very convenient for day trips by car to many of Tuscany's hilltop towns. (And, there is free, on-street parking just behind the hotel.) The rooms are clean, breakfast is delicious and plentiful, and the staff is extremely helpful and... More

Wonderfully helpful, delightful rooms with super comfortable beds. Breakfast simple and tasty. I have been visiting Pienza as a halfway point stopover between work commitments in Florence and Civita Castellana for over 10 years ... This will be my new place to rest my head!

Stayed 1 night on the way to our usual destination in Tuscany. Greeted with a very warm welcome, room delightful with a lovely little balcony . Breakfast very traditionally Italian which was gratefully welcomed. 5 minute walk into the heart of Pienza.

We stayed one night at Arca di Pienza and it was very enjoyable. This is not a big hotel but more of a bed and breakfast. Arca di Pienza was incredibly clean and the owners, Antonio and Gloria, were very helpful, carrying bags and setting chairs up outside for us. Our room did not have a courtyard or balcony so...

As part of our tour of Italy, we often picked rooms from the internet the same day. For Tuscany (Toscano) we planned several days in Pienza, so it was more important to find a nice place. We were not disappointed with our choice. The staff was great. Always helpful and polite. I assumed they were the owners from the effort... More

We stayed at Arca di Pienza for two nights and had an amazing time! The room is comfortable and we loved having a terrace. It is only a 2 minute walk to gorgeous Pienza. The thing that sets this hotel apart from others is the wonderful customer service. Antonio and his family are beyond wonderful. He helped us carry our... More

They couldn't have been more helpful from carrying our bags to restaurant recommendations. Talking of which walk right through the old town to the end you will find a lovely restaurant, you need to book, its set in a triangle, great food and good prices, but DON'T ask for ketchup with your lasagne. Hotel staff were so helpful and courteous.

We spent 3 nights at the Arca di Pienza in May. Very clean room with a lovely courtyard and king size bed. Antonio and Gloria were gracious hosts and assisted us with booking a winery tour. They suggested excellent recommendations for dinner. Wonderful breakfast each morning with savory and sweets and cappuccino. Walking distance to the old town area which... More

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

There was a telephone number in your reservation for assistence, you could call us. But you did not. You were in Pienza, you did not show up because you... More
