“Lovely and well-cared for hotel”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

We stayed in this hotel only one night, and chose it thanks to the TripAdvisor recommendations, which were fully justified! Very clean and well-appointed, friendly and courteous staff, great location, excellent breakfast.

This hotel was a fantastic find in Pienza. We were able to base ourselves here comfortably, explore Pienza and surrounding Tuscan countryside without car parking hassles. The car park is free, large and across the road from the hotel. Easy access in and out. The historic town is 2 min walk. Our room was well furnished and very comfortable with access to a terrace and garden seating area. Breakfast was delicious. Cakes were baked each day. Gloria, Antonio and Elvio were our attentive hosts. We were sick of the crowds,queues and frenetic traffic of Athens and Rome. Pienza and the Tuscan countryside were just what we needed.

Room Tip: Room with a terrace.

This hotel is located in Pienza, two minutes walk from the ancient town and major attractions. The rooms are great and very clean. The service attentive and the breakfast is fantastic. The only little negative point would be the parking (we arrived by car); it is advertised as free and it is if you can find a free spot in the public parking with the right color lines (avoid the blue).
Pienza is a great place to get a tour to Montepulciano and visit the Enotecas and wineries. We recommend you take a bus tour as I enjoy wine but obviously a problem when driving a car as we were.
A two night stay, arriving early the firsts day will give you the opportunity to visit Pienza's most important attractions and the tour to Montepulciano. If you want to spend more time on Montepulciano, stay there. If not, spend two nights and then drive on to San Gimignano as we were recommended by our travel agent.

Very nice small hotel running by one family, hosts are very friendly and attentive, we felt ourselves like we were family guests not hotel guests. The room was lovely, with beautiful terrace (unfortunately the weather didn't allow us to enjoy it). The old town is in 2 minutes walk distance.

While the room itself was small, it had a patio- garden area. Breakfast was a small buffet and owners were friendly. The town is known for its pecorino cheese and the shops featured it. Charming walks in and around the small town, worthy of a short visit.

It is located about 10-min walk away from town center of Pienza. There's a petrol kiosk opposite of it and a small Coop supermarket right next to it. This family-run place served good quality breakfast and the lady owner who couldn't speak a lot of Englsih was very patient to explain the direction to town and internet access to us. We had a nicely decorated room that has a patio door that opened to a courtyard garden. The whole property was very well mainatined and clean. There is free parking available at a nearby car park.
