Hotel San Martin is a beautiful place to stay. It's proximity to the walled city, helpful people at reception, excellent room service raise its points. They accommodated our preferences for kind of room. Breakfast was ok, it could have been better.

I stayed in Hotel San Martin for 9 days. Very pleasant hotel with helpful and wonderful staff. It was very nice to have my breakfast in the garden. Nice old building that looks like my grandma house and with nice bedrooms. Wonderful place at a very fair price. If you want to take a taxi to Ciudad Amurallada, it will...

The staff is very friendly, the rooms and building are very clean. The rooms and bathrooms are a bit small but very clean and the bathrooms are updated. The lobby is beautiful and always smells great. The ac in the rooms works great which is needed because it gets super hot in Cartagena. Also, the beach is one block away...

This is a nice, beach-style hotel. The room we had was very plain, with tile flooring (makes more sense than carpet in a beach area), but very clean and comfortable. The breakfast each morning is great, and the staff are very accommodating. It's on a busy street, but fairly quiet. The short cab ride to the old city cost 6,000...

This is a beautiful place if you're thinking of staying in the Bocagrande area, which is about a 10 min cab ride from the old walled city in Cartagena. The breakfast daily is very nice and the people who work at the hotel do everything they can to make you comfortable. I stayed with a friend and we didn't find...
