My daughter (adult) and I were completely exhausted and needed a relaxing, peaceful few days sitting by a pool and relaxing in the sunshine and this is exactly what we got. This is a lovely place to stay and only a short walk away from town. The buffet breakfast is very good and they serve light lunches on the terrace... More

Excellent choice. Really convenient walk into San Gimignano with its sights, shops, restaurants, etc. staff were helpful and friendly. Great air con. Made for good nights sleep. Great buffet breakfasts. The pool was normally quiet but a large British wedding party started the ball rolling on "towels on loungers" - what a pity! Highly recommended if you're staying in Central... More

Our second visit here. Excellent hotel, friendly staff, nice pool, good location just outside the busy town centre...and an outstanding breakfast. We got married in San Gimignano, and the hotel couldn't have helped us more. Family members who stayed with us felt the same. Would come again - grazie!

Great hotel, nice room, v. good staff, ideal location with the most spectacular views. Great breakfasts with the option of inside or verandah dining. We had lunch there a few days and this was also v. enjoyable. Pretty gardens and a great pool. We will definitely return.

The only thing we wish is that we'd asked for a Countryside view when we booked (our own fault) as it is just stunning. Having a leisurely breakfast in the countryside was delightful, and the countryside views have the same thing but one or two floors higher. The rear of the property offers a glimpse of the towers, but also... More

Relais Santa Chiara is a wonderful modern Tuscan hotel where I have stayed many times at different times of the year with either family or friends. I have visited many parts of Italy and have therefore sampled many hotels but Relais Santa Chiara is one of my two favourites. The decor is elegant and stylish. All the reception rooms are... More

We stayed here for 10 nights and enjoyed everyone of them. Hotel was spotless, gardens kept beautifully as was the pool. We had a room at the rear of the hotel, and although we did not get the view it was quiet and cool. Breakfasts were always fresh and plentiful, and being able to sit outside was a bonus. Staff...

We landed in San Gimignano in June 2015 and chose the perfect place to stay! Relais Santa Chiara is perfect in every sense...the location, the quality of the hotel and the staff. When we had to leave suddenly and unexpectedly the staff couldn't have been more helpful. This place was our perfect piece of paradise and we intend to return... More

We had a fantastic stay in beautiful surrounds. Opening the balcony doors to such an amazing view was a great treat. Having the pool for a refreshing swim during the heat wave was wonderful. We also enjoyed eating breakfast on the terrace overlooking the pool and lovely landscaped gardens. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Being able to stroll... More
