The hotel is located in a really good location, close to many restaurants and pubs if you like to get out at night. It's a walking distance to the Casino, mall and to the beach (Av. Peru). The staff is very helpful and friendly. Breakfast really good. If you don't like the ocean sound.. do not choose Ocean View, at... More

The hotel is located at a walking distance of everything you would need.. restaurants, mall, "victorias", etc. The hotel's staff is very kind and they are always ready to help you in anything you need. The hotel's restaurant menu was also excellent, and the breakfast with many options (although the coffee was not the best). The rooms are spacious, and... More

Get a room with a sight of the beach/ocean, listen to the waves at night as you doze, and walk the beach and the area - a charming stroll. Food is first rate at the hotel, but to savor Chile, walk from the hotel to the left-hand corner, cross the street and walk a quarter block to the first street,... More

We went to the bar to meet some friends for drink. We were there for 2 1/2 hours and could get only one drink during that time. Service was terrible. Waitress had no interest in serving anyone. Everyones glasses were empty, our table and many others. Place was not full so I do not know what the delay was. We... More

The hotel is a full service hotel. the Bar named Don Joaquin is a great place for meeting people and enjoying the best Chilean drinks like the Pisco Sour. The bartender will let you taste the drink before pouring it into the glass and ask you is if needs more sugar, pisco, or lemon. My drink was always perfect. In... More

We had 3 nights in this hotel on our Chile road trip. Although they don’t advertise that they have parking, we were able to park in one of their spaces as guided by an attendant. A warm welcome at reception and then up to room 605. Quite compact, ie small, but spotless & comfortable, and we had booked a sea... More

San Martin is next to the Ocean (though a street runs between them). It's right by the downtown area with restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. The rooms are standard and the Internet service was reliable. Restaurant food was good. The downside is that the showers are a little snug and if you're on the street view it can get noisy at...
