We loved this hotel and San Gimignano in Tuscany. This is such a wonderful town and the only way to get around is to walk. The hotel wonderfully sited on a gentle hillside overlooking the Tuscan countryside and only about a 5-7 minute walk from town. We wisely upgraded for another 40 euros to a balcony room overlooking the pool... More

Very nice hotel, good location. My luggage was delayed, the staff, Romina and Erika, were most helpful in calling the airport in Rome and following up on my bag. Wonderfully friendly staff! We are most thankful for their help.

Our recent re visit to this hotel was as usual a delight. The views from the balcony rooms are wonderful. San Gimignano is a beautiful city to stay and with the hotel located a few minutes walk from the city walls makes it somewhere to relax during the day when SG is very busy. There are plenty of good restaurants... More

The location of this hotel is great as its only about a 400m walk to the beautiful walled town of San Gimignano. The hotel itself is very good, well maintained, clean and it has lovely views over the surrounding countryside. The pool area is very nice and it too has lovely views. Breakfast was very good particularly when taken on... More

Stayed here with a small tour group in September. View from our room was quintessential Tuscany. Enjoyed a wine (or two) from the balcony. Room on the small side, but balcony compensates. Really lovely breakfasts, good service. Nice tea at breakfast. Hotel reception attentive, & personable. Nice to be able to park our bikes out front too. Very easy walk... More

This hotel is situated well for visiting Florence, Lucca, Pisa and Siena and is only an easy stroll into San Gimignano, so location is great. The staff are very obliging and pleasant. Our room wasn't very big but overlooked the pool and typical Tuscan countryside, although there was an additional charge of 40E/night for the privilege. I would recommend it... More

My husband and I returned for a second year running after discovering this gem of a hotel and a town. Erika was there again at reception helping us with all our queries and requests. Fantastic lady and all her staff were equally welcoming. Breakfast on the terrace and the pool and the stunning views make this hotel the perfect find... More

We stayed in this hotel in September 2014. First of all, the hotel is in a fantastic location, it is an easy ten minutes walk to the centre of San Gimignano, so not as noisy as some of the more central hotels and also benefits from a swimming pool and available parking which you would not get in a hotel...

Parking was available both inside the gate (15 euros) and outside (free) but would be limited in high season.Pity the hotel charges for wi-Fi as this seems nickel and dime for a... More

The hotel is ideally located for exploring Tuscany. The short walk in to San Gimignano (approx 400m) very friendly and efficient staff, comfortable clean bedrooms and excellent views out over the garden make the Relais Santa Chiara an ideal place to book for a Tuscan holiday. The only area for improvement in my view is the swimming pool water temperature.... More
