Great place to visit!

Posted Aug 11, 2014
We were there for biz and plesure. The staff at the hotel were fantastic! I don't speak Spanish but some of the staff do. They went out of their way to take care of us. Room is a little small but very clean, modern and comfortable. Air Conditioner worked great. breakfast was wonderful. Internet worked well. I will stay there again.

EXCELLENT HOTEL!

I couldn't find anything wrong with this hotel! The room was comfortable, had air conditioning, hot water, and tv. The staff was friendly, helpful, and attentive. Breakfast was WONDERFUL! It was quiet at night. There are Some restaurants nearby, and you can either walk it take a taxi to the historical center. I highly recommend this hotel.

Well located with modest but good basic facilities

Posted Jun 15, 2014
Pros: Economical but good.
Cons: Making the reservation was a bit difficult
Location: Other than the old city, Bocagrande, where this hotel is located, is the main tourist area.
It is a very good hotel for the price. Includes a fresh and good breakfast, internet and pleasant employees.

Perfect hotel

Posted Mar 13, 2014
Pros: Location. Staff friendliness and efficiency. Room cleanliness.
Location: The beach is 1 block away. Near supermarkets (great opportunity to try local fruits and sweets like arequipe), near a great variety of restaurants.
The staff is incredibly friendly and efficient. Everyone is always smiling and making sure your stay in Cartagena is pleasant. Lourdes helped me book my tour to Islas del Rosario and gave me recommendations for what to do there. Later on I had the chance to stay at a 5 star hotel and I wanted to run back to San Martin. There was no point if comparison. When I come back to Cartagena I'll stay at this hotel again. Perfect location just 1 block from the beach and right next to great restaurants.

Nice hotel close to beach and old part of town

Posted Feb 11, 2014
Pros: It was comfortable and it still liked authentic part of the original city design.
Cons: Better wireless internet
Location: The Cartagena Biennial is on till the end of April. It's a great art show and a fun way of getting to know the city since the exhibits are spread out.
It was very nice and we are looking forward to our next return trip to the city and this hotel

Awesome hotel, great staff

Posted Jan 17, 2014 on Hotels.com
Loved my stay in Cartagena at San Martin. The staff at the front desk were the nicest people ever, despite the fact I could barely speak Spanish. Location is terrific as well. Cabs everywhere, and piece and quite when you need it. If I'm in the area again in the future, I'll probably end up staying at the same place.

Pros: Location and cleanliness.
Cons: More items on breakfast buffet and definitely English speaking staff.
This hotel is in the middle of town, accross the street from Hop-on-hop-off stop and a couple of blocks from the beach. Would definitely recommend it to anybody who just needs the basics. Very clean, only you need to know some spanish as about 99% of staff do not speak English. Breakfast is OK, basics.
