This was, I think, our fourth visit to this lovely small hotel over the last 20 years or so. Nothing much has changed over that time, and nor would we want it to. A calm, relaxed atmosphere pervades, and the staff are helpful and friendly, but unobtrusive. Our first floor room (junior suite?) with small balcony overlooking the pool and... More

We stayed 3 nights in San Gimignano and it was a highlight of our Italian vacation. Hotel was very nice. Nice 10 minute walk to town. Great views, nice breakfast, very nice staff. We are already counting the days when we will return.

We have stayed here 3 times now and always enjoy it. The owner Monica and her staff are friendly and very helpful. The rooms are clean and well kept. They have renovated half the rooms and the rest will be done this winter. The breakfast is very nice. Nice pool and grounds for relaxing and you can't beat the awesome... More

Had a lovely holiday at this hotel which is ideally situated for visiting San Gimignano. The room was spacious with a small balcony which took advantage of the amazing views over the Tuscan hills. The hotel was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Breakfast was perfectly adequate. All the staff were helpful and we would love to visit again.

Not the biggest hotel but ideally sited if you want to stay close to San Gimignano and avoid having to drive there. About 10 minutes from the centre of the town the uphill walk in gets you ready for dinner and the downhill walk back is quite relaxing and stomach-settling. We stayed in mid-May and the weather was OK with... More

We have visited the Relais Santa Chiara over quite a few years, always in May, and have never been anything but delighted. The very position of the hotel is just one of its great assets, located just 400 metres from the city gate which makes it the nearest hotel to the city with car parking on site. It also means...

It's a fabulous location - just a 5-10 minute walk from the southern gate of San Gimangnano (slightly uphill) and with views to die for from the south facing rooms over the Tuscan fields. Our superior room was great, although water was only lukewarm one morning. Breakfast was pretty ordinary but perfectly satisfactory. Wifi was free but a little hit... More

A beautiful place to begin our tour of Tuscany. The pool and views that awaited us made our first lunch there such a treat. A short uphill walk into San Gimignano (but then it's downhill for the return journey!) was worth it. San Gimignano is a little Tuscan gem! We loved our evening passeggiata for gelato and pre-dinner drinks in... More

We booked this hotel because it provided Tuscan views, walkability to restaurants and parking. The hotel is around 400m from the San Giovanni gate into San Gimignano - admittedly it is uphill but still very manageable. We used the hotel as a base to wander around Tuscany. We had a Jnr Suite which has a bedroom with firm King bed,... More

we stayed several nights and the hotel could not have been nicer. we had the countryside view including the view. nice short walk to town to restaurants and gelato. small charge for wifi, which since it is so small, i guess every euro counts.. its a very nice hotel in a very popular location, so the cost was no surprise....
