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...

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...

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.

We spent 3 nights at the Arca di Pienza in May. Very clean room with a lovely courtyard and king size bed. Antonio and Gloria were gracious hosts and assisted us with booking a winery tour. They suggested excellent recommendations for dinner. Wonderful breakfast each morning with savory and sweets and cappuccino. Walking distance to the old town area which...

We stayed here for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the time you are greeted at the door until you leave it is a great spot.

I booked a reservation here and then my travel plans changed. I emailed the hotel (several weeks in advance... well within the cancellation policy) to cancel the room and got no response, even though I was following the cancellation instructions on their website. I tried three more times, still no response. When I returned from my trip and got my...

Madame, It was so easy to write us back at the right address (a clue: the one in your reservation where is written, for assistance write us at). You did not. There was a telephone number in your reservation for assistence, you could call us. But you did not. You were in Pienza, you did not show up because you...

The Arca di Pienza is highly recommended. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need – including a comfortable bed, a nice bathroom and either a balcony or a terrace outside. Prices are reasonable and the location is perfect, only a few minutes on foot to the pedestrian streets in the historic centre. Breakfast is included and the coffee...

This was a good small hotel up in Pienza Italy in Tuscany. It was clean, the rooms well appointed and all fully ensuited. Breakfast was included in the reasonable price. It is not a big selection but quite adequate. All the rooms have doors opening I to a terrace area of their own or shared with another room. We had...

“The rooms facing the main street look out over a gas station and the road is fairly busy but it wasn't particularly noisy.”

“Request a patio room.”
