“We had a delightful stay here!”
Reviewed October 19, 2010

Really enjoyed our week-long stay at Piccolo Hotel in Pienza. The hotel is well located, just across from the small historic center of Pienza. Pienza itself is a charming little town, and while small, I found it to be perhaps my favorite hill town in Tuscany.

Back to the hotel itself - it's a modern building and is well kept and very clean. Marco, who I assume is the manager, was incredibly nice and helpful, as were other memebers of the staff.

The room was reasonably sized and featured amazing views of the Val d'Orcia. The bathroom was large, the shower had doors (hallelujah!) and excellent water pressure. The bed was not the most comfortable, as it was a bit firm for my liking and the pillows were of the thin and flat variety. The TV could also use a few more channels - if you are an English speaker, CNN International is the only option, and the WiFi service pretty weak once you leave the lobby.

Our room was fairly quiet, though at night the lobby occasionally gets a bit loud when a few of the locals came to the small bar for wine or espresso. It wasn't really an issue for us, being on the first floor, but those staying directly above the lobby must have noticed.

Each morning we enjoyed a great breakfast spread as well as fresh coffee of our choosing. This breakfast was really one of the best parts of our stay - it was delicious and probably would have run 20+ euros a person to get an equivalent breakfast elsewhere.

All told, it's a great little hotel and I'd definitely stay there again.

My husband and I stayed at the Piccolo Hotel La Valle with our 8 month old daughter in September. The hotel is in the best position in Pienza, which is a beautiful stopover on any road trip around Tuscany. The hotel staff were fantastic, and made a big fuss over our daughter. The crib was even set up before we got there. The room was nothing fancy, but it was very clean and spacious. The breakfast terrace overlooks the Tuscan hills, and the breakfast buffet was a lot more substantial than we had in other hotels. Overall, highly recommended!

This small hotel provided outstanding service, clean and quiet rooms, beautiful views, and the best breakfast of our two week trip. The lobby has comfortable seating and the outdoor patio offers breathtaking views. We would go back again!

Spent months looking online for a perfect place to base in Tuscany for four days. Scored a perfect 10 with this great hotel. Ditto to all reviews - superb views (you must get a balcony view), helpful service, delicious breakfast, impeccable cleanliness. We especially loved the ability to park the car at the end of the day and walk to a nice selection of restaurants in Pienza. Speaking of Pienza, do not pay attention to Rick Steves, who gives this town a bad review. It is charming and the perfect size, with some of the most spectacular scenery in Tuscany. The promenade on the lower part of the city wall is spectacular - my most memorable stroll in Italy. If we are lucky enough to get back to Tuscany, then we will most definitely return.

Everything about this hotel is delightful : the rooms (spotless ; chose one with a balcony), the location (incredible view of the Tuscan countryside ), the food (breakfast plentiful and tasty), the staff (charming. and helpful).
We spent eight nights there and wish we could have stayed much much longer !

My wife and I started a two-week Italian vacation at Piccolo Hotel and when all was complete, it is the one place we said we would return to any time in the future. The central-Tuscany location makes it a great place from which to base your sightseeing adventures and we did just that for four days, seeing many local towns, wineries, etc. and of course, restaurants.

Piccolo Hotel is a charming mix of old and new, the views from their terrace are spectacular and the service is very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Very clean, the air conditioning was welcome during the very hot weather during our stay and the off-street parking was a plus. Their breakfast offerings were the best of our five different hotels over the two weeks and having it out on their terrace overlooking the countryside was just a wonderful way to start the day (or end there it with a glass of wine as well!)

Overall a great value and we will indeed return and recommend to others.
