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

We stayed here four nights at the end of August. The hotel is in a beautiful setting, with wonderful Tuscan views and just a few minutes' walk from the walls of San Gimignano. Being outside the town made it quiet and peaceful on the whole (see below!). The Reception and waiting staff were excellent, friendly and extremely helpful and the... More

The perfect match amid a very nice place like San Giminiano is and the best location where to start. Well placed in the middle of a very beautiful region makes easy to reach Siena and other villages like Volterra and many others. Hotel's facilities as well as the courtesy of the staff are the best hospitality a tourist can expect... More

We booked two nights in the Santa Chiara Hotel and when we arrived we loved it so much we booked a further two nights. Excellent location, very friendly staff. The rooms were very clean. View from the pool area is absolutely fantastic. Maybe you could encourage guests to stay in the hotel at night time by providing some entertainment.

We arrived at the hotel for a few days for a very dear friends wedding. Our suitcase with all our clothes etc did not arrive at Florence airport so we were not feeling very happy. Erika and her colleagues on reception made us so welcome and immediately took over the job of chasing up our baggage-as we do not speak... More

After 2 not so pleasant experiences with hotels on our visit to Umbria and Tuscany, we arrived in San Gimignano slightly apprehensive as to what type of accommodation we would find. However, we were delighted. Easy to find. Very welcoming, helpful and informative staff. Lovely room although not large. Wonderful views. Perfect oasis.
