Good location on Avenue San Martin with all amenities nearby---shopping, restaurants, sites. The lackluster beach is a block away. The hotel is clean as was my postage-stamp sized room with its microdot serving as the bathroom. A small desk and chair was in the room and an in-room safe. A/C was fine; hot water was available after a short wait;...

This was a good value, nice, clean, simple hotel. Breakfast was simple but nice in teh morning. Nice deck. If you are a beach goer, it is good location in Boca Grande. It is a simple cab ride to Old City, but is a bit of a walk. The staff was nice and hospitable.

We stayed here for one night and enjoyed the location and hospitality of the front desk staff. The interior of the room was a little dated and the wifi had its challenges but the breakfast and helpfulness of staff made up for it. They gave us helpful info to find our way around Bocagrande.

At our budget, we couldn’t have chosen a better place to stay than Hotel San Martin. The location, at Bocagrande, was ideal to access the beach, the old city and the airport. It is just 50m from the beach and there are lots of options to eat out in the area. Our room (2nd floor) was very clean, had a...

I spent two weeks in this hotel. The location is great in Bocagrande. It is literally one block to the beach one direction and one block to the boardwalk in the other direction. The staff is attentive. One of the staff leaned my morning coffee routine on day 1, and everyday thereafter brought me my coffee just the way I...

We stayed here three nights total - one night, then 2 nights a week later in a different room. The location is fine, on a busy Bocagrande street. It is a small hotel amid many high rise buildings. The public areas of the hotel are OK - arches and plants, open hallways. The rooms are spacious and beds comfortable. But...

*Our restroom clogged the day before we are going to check out, so we informed them about it, no update or nothing was done to it. *Rooms were very outdated and improper lighting and gives the impression of a 2 star hostel. *Location is nice and it is close to the centro as well, taxi's would cost around $2-3.

I called to book this hotel 2 days ahead of my planned visit to Cartagena. I saw other reviews on this site that gave it good reviews so I decided to stay here. I called the reservations department and spoke in Spanish to the receptionist. I was quoted a price of roughly 186,000 COP per day which is around $63...

The hotel was very convenient. The staff was excellent and always tried to help even when we had language issues. Its a small hotel and there are stairs for the second floor just in case someone has issues you would want to be on the first floor. There is free WIFi but its a bit slow at times. Breakfast was...
