The restaurant was fairly high end and kept quite separate from the hotel so didn't really feel welcome to have an afternoon vino. When we did one evening it was a tad difficult and cost 7 euros a glass compared with 2 Euro at the bar on the main square overlooking the church. Would be nice to have a bar for guests or an area where vino della casa is available for a more reasonable price.
The room was clean and had everything you needed safe, hot shower, fridge, hairdryer, shutters, air con that works well and comfy beds with extra pillows. Breakfast was continental and really good with fresh fruit, tasty cereal, cakes, toast, meats and cheeses, though make sure you ask for a coffee as the 'American coffee' is horrid most places in Italy and this is no exception. Also the pool added the extra wow factor for an hour's chilled time and often in the morning we were the only ones there! Pienza is small but perfectly formed and filled with families and couples, a good base to explore fabulous Tuscany.
