The room was clean and roomy with an AC, which is a must in Cartagena. The breakfast was included and offered options to please most. Lots of fresh fruits, 3 different kinds of...

I was booked here as part of a package of flights and hotels for a Colombia vacation. This place was so much more than I expected that I had to write here.

This hotel is excellent on all fronts. The position is very good and the beach is only a short distance away. If you need to supermarket shop there is the Olympica not far away. The beakfast is very good and the food if ordered from the room service menu is outstanding and all at a very acceptable price.

There were 8 of us: two couples in double rooms + 4 teenagers 15-19 in a Quadruple room. Some more details: The good: 1. The stuff, headed by Orlando at the reception,...

The Hotel San Martin was a very cute and reasonable option while touring Cartagena, Columbia. It's located in the Bocagrande area, it's easy to get around and well situated for dining, shopping and beaching. The hotel is a good 3 star option with clean rooms and very attentive staff. If you are looking to spend all your touring time in...
