“A Quiet, Peaceful Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

We stayed 2 nights at the Piccolo Hotel in early May. The hotel is conveniently located on a ridge overlooking the surrounding countryside with wonderful terrace gardens and amazing views. The staff spoke excellent English and were especially helpful in finding nearby restaurants and providing driving directions. The rooms were very quiet and comfortable. Pienza and Hotel Lavalle provided a charming alternative to the hustle and bustle of the larger and more touristy Tuscan hill towns.

We asked for a room with a terrace and view and we got a lovely room with spectacular views.
The staff were lovely, the location perfect and Pienza was a perfect hill top town.

Room Tip: Pick a room with a terrace and view, oh it's well worth it!

We had a room with a balcony. View was amazing - you can hardly have better view from the small terrace. The room was really small and unfortunately you can hear neighbors if they are a little bit more louder. Breakfast was very good and a gluten-free-heaven ... they offer by default gluten free muesli, bread and more.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

We spent 3 nights in this little, comfortable nice hotel in the heart of Tuscany between Montalcino and Montepulciano.
Hoped but did'nt know what to expect and were blown away by the fantastic view from our room and own little balcony! 180 ¤ wide and high view over the valley and all the hills beyond, and to one side the end of the old towns castlewall and the hotel's lovely breakfast garden. It all made our stay fit into our longed for dream of the Tuscan escape!
From early morning sun to the beautiful landscape lay bathed in golden light below, even from the bathroom window! The old renaissance town of Pienza has a spectacular setting on top of a cliff and is beautiful and very quiet. We enjoyed our stay very much and everything was very pleasent and comfortable. We hope to come back to that great view of the heart of the Tuscan countryside! Underground parking, great breakfastbuffet and friendly staff. Good value, we stayed during low season.

Good standard, clean and cosy.
Breakfast very good - wide selection of fresh local food, quite rare for a small hotel in Italy.
Fantastic landscape from the backyard terrace where we could sit and try Aperol Sprtiz in warm days.
Safe in the room. Underground car park included. WiFi available FoC in the lobby.
Non-problematic English speaking staff.

Very good place to stay for couple of days and to visit surrounding places such as Montalcino, Montepulciano, etc.
