Cost is quite affordable and worth the service and accommodation, quite big rooms, friendly staff and comfortable beda. However they don't have a lift for PWD, SC, Pregnant Women etc. I got pity to the bellboy who carried my 45kg luggage. Wifi is not accessible inside the room.

This hotel is not a five star bit if you have a big family and want to live close to everything in gensan, then this is the great place to stay. We were 5 people in the suite and we have all we need. The breakfast is great like any european dishes. I noticed several foreigners in this hotel mainly... More

Just visited last week. This hotel is very centrally located, close to SM City General Santos and other major malls. The room was OK, European design and cool air conditioning. It was pretty pleasant. Airport pick up on time. Very lovey and cute staff. The best thing that this hotel has going for it is the location- it really can't... More

I guess I lucked out this time as it wasn't very busy during my stay. I arrived later in the evening due a delayed flight. Check in was quick and pleasant. I was given a room on the third floor. I had to take the stairs as this four storey building does not have an elevator. The hotel is an... More

Pros: Location Cons: 1. No Elevator 2. Your room card key is only valid up to 11 AM or earlier. When you're out and get back past 11AM to fix your stuff prior to checking out, you're doomed to go back down to get your card updated so you can open your room and get your things. 3. You will... More

The thing we like the most about Hotel San Marco is its central location. Almost everything is just a short tricycle ride away. It's just few minutes away from shopping and dining establishments such as SM City GenSan and Veranza Mall. If you need to take a trip to nearby towns, the Bulaong Bus Terminal and the KCC van terminal... More

Was able to stay here during official trip in the city. Nice hotel staff. Nice ambiance. Clean rooms. Clean towels (hope they could maintain this, as a rug-colored towel is really a turn-off). SM is just a walking distance for those who have walkathon while enjoying the smell of durian being sold along the side walk. Or just take a... More

The hotel looks old from the outside and even inside, but thats how they wanted it to be. It is one of the new hotels in the city that has a touch of italian architecture. Walking through the hallway may be a bit eerie but the whole italian theme was rather unique and awesome.

Great prices all around, Room and food were nice and reasonable. The staff was nice. The rooms were fine. I'll stay here again next visit. Only thing I would like to see is better furniture to sit on up on the big balcony instead of just the marble table and stools.

The hotel is very new, with a strong Italian influence in the decor in its lobby and rooms. It is very strategically located near the just opened SM mall in the City, it's a 5 minute walk from the hotel! The rooms are a bit on the expensive side - we got a family room of 2 double beds that... More
