My family and I recently stayed at the Santa Chiara in San Gimignano. The hotel is beautiful and located in a very peaceful place. Our room was nice and comfortable and bathroom was very clean. Gardens are beautiful and pool is nice and offers beautiful views. Breakfast is ok and staff in the restaurant is always willing to serve you with kindness (hotel only offers breakfast).
The hotel is located very close from San Gimignano (10 minutes walking). However, if you are planning to visit other towns in Tuscany, it is absolutely a great idea to rent a car. Only thing to improve is the Wi-Fi……it really does not work well.
Overall, this is a good hotel to stay in Tuscany.
