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...

My mother, friend, and I stayed for Christmas in a junior suite with beach views. We originally had a two person reservation, but when my friend came the hotel staff found us a junior suite on spot without an upgrade charge. The staff continued to be very helpful in making a Christmas eve dinner reservation- the food at the connected... More

The hotel is in a good location with a view of the beach and ocean but there is a restaurant directly across the street that is quite loud at night and in the morning they dump their recycling in to big metal bins which makes the most horrendous noise. The rooms are very small and a bit cramped for a... More

The hotel is really good and its location is excellent (just a few blocks from the Casino). The thing is if you are paying at least US 380 for an ocean view in low season, you expect some luxury. The pool is really small and really cold. There's no spa, the tub in the bathroom quite small, not such a... More

First of all it's a low 3 stars, other than the prices you won't find anything of a 4 stars. Let's start with the city view room, the road is very busy, no big deal if the window was sound proof. Well it wasn't. Requested to be moved to an ocean view but was told none available and to check... More

Stayed a weekend at the hotel. Got the recommended from locals. The location was god, close to the beach, restaurants and not to fare away from the busstation. The hotel is not new and room is out of date. Close to Stabucks for an american style morning coffee.

Our plans were to drive to Viña from Santiago for the day but ended up staying over the w/end because we were charmed by Hotel San Martin. The rooms are under US$200 per night , the hotel is clean and safe. Will be going back on the next trip to Chile.
