This is the smallest hotel room we've ever stayed in. It felt cramped and would benefit from some modernising as almost all the fittings had seen better days; our bed was bowed and not very comfy, the air-con loud, the fridge hot, and the shower cracked. We both killed 2-4 ants each time we used the bathroom. I was a...

Very. Nice hotel, best view you can have, pool and place around calm and pleasant, rooms and amenities excellent, but we first entered the hotel, we were disappointed, if not shocked by the cold and distant way we were greeted and recieved at the hotel reception. The lady there should really stick to what they say in the Dolomites, where...

My husband and I stayed 4 nights at this hotel. The room we had was very spacious and very clean although we did not have a view of the grounds or the surrounding areas which didn't bother us as we weren't in the room much. I had read previous reviewas in regard to breakfast where people stated there wasn't much...

Travelling to Sicily we thought this would be a nice place to stop over for 3 nights. We arrived early and requested a upgrade to a room with a view and balcony based on the reviews..for a extra €90 we did receive a upgrade. We had a fabulous view overlooking the pool and the valley, the balcony was small but...

Lovely hotel. Small, friendly, spotless, well managed, excellent bar service, rooms cleaned to a very high standard. Small pool with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. Does not have a dinner restaurant but breakfasts very good with excellent service. Short walk into San Gimignano

If you want to be close to San Gimignano but not at the centre of it, then this hotel ticks all the boxes. It's only a 5 minute walk into town so super easy to get to. The scenery is stunning and there are lots of eateries both in and on the way to town. However, it's unlikely you will...

Just returned from five days at RSC hotel. Had a picturesque view of tuscan countryside within walking distance to SG. The rooms were lovely, delicious breakfast, relaxing atmosphere full of Tuscan charm. The highlight of our trip was attending Andrea Bocelli's rehearsal concert in Lojatico. I tried to get tickets a month prior and couldn't get anything. Thanks to Erica,...

Great location, within a short walk to the old city of San Gimignano. Beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside from the terrace and poolside. After a week in Rome and three days in Florence, this was the best place I could have chosen to relax, soak up some rays and enjoy the pool. Staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Relais Santa Chiara is a charming and elegant hotel located in the heart of the rolling hills of Tuscany, between Florence and Sienna. The hotel looks over the splendid, peaceful countryside towards Volterra and is situated just 400 mt. below the city walls of San Gimignano, a town of fairy tales with its 14 medieval towers that testify to a fascinating past. In addition, the strategic location allows one to make day trips to all the major cultural and artistic sites of the surrounding area. The hotel offers 40 rooms, made up of 4 different room types either facing the rear garden or facing the splendid Tuscan countryside. Many rooms have beautiful balconies and our superior rooms have bath with hydromassage. All rooms have air-conditioning, digital TV with international channels, hair dryers and mini-bar. Other services include private parking, a meeting room with a capacity up to 60 persons, Mediterranean garden filled with olive and cypress trees that encompass the swimming pool, which includes a separate, heated mini pool with hydro massage and an inviting and well stocked bar serving an array of beverages and a variety of snacks and light meals. The breakfast is a complete buffet that will certainly satisfy the biggest morning appetite. In the summer breakfast and bar service are available outside on the terrace. Particular attention has been given to the hotel’s furnishings. Some of the most prestige materials make up the guest rooms, such as brier wood and national oak. The public areas breath an atmosphere that’s classic Tuscany. Florentine terracotta covers the lobby which is integrated with a colorful pastel marble mosaic. The famous Serena gray stone is another dominate element found throughout the hotel, like the reception desk and the grand fireplace. Activities available nearby are: walking itineraries departing from the hotel, guided tours of the historic centre, scooter rental, wine tasting (come with light lunch), cooking classes, tennis, horse riding and a 27 hole golf course 18 km away. ... more   less
