We stayed there for one night. Very nice welcome and good rooms for the price. But the AC did not work - and it was very hot. Of course a big minus. Breakfast good and plenty. Parking for free across the road a big plus. Recommended.

Good location, 3 minutes walk to village and right next to supermarket. Staff were sooo helpful and great room. Shower has crazy door which ends in wet floor. Magnificent village, so beautiful If you are driving, plenty of parking which is free in surrounding streets and the views will blow you away.

Located a very short walk from the centro storico, this hotel is a great base for exploring Pienza and its surroundings. There is a parking lot as well as a gas station right across the street and a coop store next door. The rooms are spacious, spotless and beautifully furnished. Ours even came with a little terrace. The staff is... More

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.
