We loved this original hotel, the old building has been converted well, but it's a shame the air conditioning wasn't working. The sun terrace was lovely, but it would have been nice if the top roof was open. Giovinazzo is a beautiful town which is very welcoming and the place to go for a quiet Italian break.

San Martin is a nice hotel that exudes modest class and history. The hotel is excellent located in the pleasant town Giovinazzo. You can have your breakfast inside but also on a nice terracce outside. In the neighbourhood there is enough parking.

We spent two great nights and would come back in a heart beat! The location is unbelievable. Close to some amazing restaurants. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. They made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in the door. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The only thing that we could complain about would be the lack... More

We had two rooms, 206 and 210. 206 is a suite with small kitchenette - we were moved to it because our first room, 212, had a problem with the heating (too hot). The refurbishment of the old monastery has been very well done and the exposed stonework creates a pleasant and unusual environment. The bar directly below room 212... More

Myself and a coworker traveled to visit a local supplier and stayed at the hotel. Now, the area is amazing. There is an awesome bar next door (Ecclesia), and a lot of places to go out and try authentic, Italian food. The hotel is right on the water with amazing view. It is very quiet, and very well kept.

Hotel is nice and clean well integrated in an old building. Located next to the sea and close to the city centre. The hotel is a bit clairaudient. Friendly staff. Shower cabin a little bit tiny. Internet and cell phone reception sometimes poor.

The town is perfect for an early flight from Bari airport. Not much more than 10 mins drive away you are in a fantastically atmospheric Italian town with a wonderful old centre. We were there on a Saturday night when it was full of local families promenading in and around the main square. The hotel is situated on the edge... More

Our recent visit to Giovinazzo for ancestral research was a pleasant surprise. We chose S Martin Hotel, a former convent, and what a treasure! Our room had a very nice view out to the Adriatic and was decorated with rustic antiques and a sea theme. The entire hotel has many special public areas and each is loaded with charm. From... More
