“Excellent B&B”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

I'm sure I will come back to 'Íl Rosellino' and also to Pienza.
Pienza is a small and beautiful town, worth a detour and to plan a visit.

B&B is on the main street (inside the city walls!), and is 2 or 3 blocks away from a parking lot (outside city walls). It isn't so easy to find a place to park during the day, but if you try after tourists have leaved town, you can find a place nearby or at least in other parking areas, a few more blocks away (usually they are free, between 20 hs and 8hs (early morning)).
Il Rosellino is an old and well preserved building. It has few comfortable rooms. Ours (on 2nd floor) had a bathroom with shower, 5 metres away and it was exclusive use for our room. Room is very clean and with nice furnitures.
Breakfast is okay, quite basic but can be improved.
The owners are very nice, but don;t speak much english (she speaks only italian).
The terrace, can be reached thru a stairway, and has magnificent views of Pienza's terraces and specially from tuscan countryside (surroundings of Pienza are very beautiful!!).
Highly recommended B&B.

Room Tip: You have to reach second floor (by stairs), were you have the first rooms available. Take note if yo...

Pienza is a lovely town, and Il Rossellino is a lovely B&B -- our room was lovely, large, with a very comfortable bed. We had the room with a private bathroom, which had an enormous shower. The location is perfect -- in the middle of the old town, on the main street, with many restaurants and shops. The panoramic view from the roof is great -- but the view from just about everywhere in Pienza is great and the town is simply charming. After the crowds of daytrippers leave, walking through the quiet streets is fantastic.

Parking can be a bit of an issue (as it is everywhere in Tuscan hill towns), but we discovered the secret - arrive at 7pm (give or take a few minutes) and there are a bunch of spaces freed up outside the walls, and in the small parking area on the other side of town. Either way, it's a very short walk to the B&B.

Oh! And the BEST pillows! Some sort of memory-foam, and they were fabulous - such a change from most pillows when we travel!

This is our 3rd time staying at Il Rossellino.
Smack in the middle of the village, it has the most amazing views from the terrace.
The rooms are typical tuscan style, charming, clean and cozy. We have always stayed at the top floor room with a lovely view of the tower from our window.
The hostess is really charming, always wows us with the personal service and the best coffee in town! We will of course stay here again next time we are in Pienza.

We recently stayed at B&B II Rossellino and highly recommmend it!! We were two couples traveling together and had the whole top floor. Both bedrooms were spacious and very clean with comfortable beds. We each had a bathroom and availability to a washing machine. Up the stairs was a patio with the most amazing view. We spent lots of time up there enjoying local wine and cheese. The breakfast was yummy and the hosts were very nice. The location can't be beat as it is right on the main street, but not at all noisy. This town is the most charming place we stayed and a great location when exploring southern Tuscany. I would highly recommend this B&B and would definately stay there again, in fact, I wish we did not have to leave!!

If you are looking for a scenic and historic place to visit in Tuscany, I suggest Pienza. This is the so called 'jewel of the valley of gold'. Pienza was the location for the movie 'The English Patient'. Once you see the breath taking countryside you will return as often as you can. The reason for making this your destination in Tuscany are many fold but amongst the top reasons are; food, wine, coffee, hospitality of residents, and close location to other picturesque towns (Montepulciano and Montalcino). The local foods include; wild boar, pecorino cheese, and hand rolled spaghetti (pici). At the writing of this review, the truffles are in season and the local cost for having it as an ingredient in your dish is low compared to that in North America. The red wines in this region are the brunello and vino noble, both of these are excellent. When in Pienza we stay in the B&B Il Rossellino. It is ideally located in the heart of Pienza with easy access and the host family are wonderful people. The B&B is well equipped with clean and modern bathrooms for each of the rooms. The roof top of the B&B has a small patio that has a panoramic view of the surrounding country. It is impossible to explain in words the view that you will see but once you have experienced it, you will understand. For dining in Pienza, we suggest a restaurant also called Il Rossellino but not part of the B&B. The restaurant is run by a couple who are experts in preparing local dishes using the freshest ingredients. The best way to order is not, just ask the owners to prepare whatever is in season. We have never been disappointed.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: We usually stay in a room on the main floor.

My wife and I spent eight wonderful days in Pienza at the B&B Il Rossellino. The hostess was a wonderful and kind lady named Fanny. Il Rossellino is located in the historic center of town near shops and a host of osterias, trattorias, and ristorantes. You have to park outside the walls of town and walk up a slight cobbled stone ramp that leads to the town’s main square. Il Rossellino is easy to find, as it is on the main street of Pienza that runs from one end of town to the other end. It is on the second floor, so you do have to climb two flights of stairs. (sorry, no elevators here) The bedroom was quite roomy and had an ensuite bathroom. The breakfast area is located in the common living area and has a kitchen where you can keep things cold in the frig. There is a stairway going up to the terrace where you have a commanding panoramic view of Pienza. Even though Fanny spoke little English, she was more than happy to break out her Italian-English dictionary, so we could communicate. She asked what time we would like to have breakfast, and always had a small bottle of fruit juice and a steaming little pot of wonderful Italian coffee waiting for us. We would absolutely stay here again and would recommend :Il Rossellino” to anyone visiting Pienza and who’s not afraid of a few stairs. Great job Fanny!

Room Tip: Book early as there are only 5 rooms available.
