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 hotel is really beautiful. The building itself is a former monastery. The feeling inside is unbelievable. I would recommend wonderful giovinazzo and San Martin for a romantic trip with your beloved ones. Truly wonderful experience!

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

Nice Hotel in the 'centro storico' of Giovinazzo. Romantic and charming rooms, good service, very friendly staff. Good breakfast and many good restaurants nearby. 360 " view on the roof gaarden at the 4th floor. Other terraces on lower levels. Absolutely to recommend!

The St Martin hotel is superb – well worth 120e per night for 2 including breakfast – even though our room was not very big & a little short on good lighting. We had the requested sea view, the concierge couldn’t have been more helpful, and the place is a delight. Formerly a 12thc convent with a paleo-Christian chapel upstairs,... More

This is a beautiful small hotel by the sea in Giovinazzo. The rooms are quirky and very characterful with good bathrooms - our room was very small but others with us had larger rooms with kitchens - it seems to be a little random. The staff are very friendly and give very good restaurant recommendations. There is a small bar... More

We stayed only one night at the San Martin hotel before flying out of Bari. We had spent 3 weeks in southern Italy and this hotel was by far the worst experience and sadly the most expensive. I had booked directly with the hotel 2 months in advance of our stay and was quoted the top rate on their website.... More

Dear Jo B I have read with much interest your comment and I wish to thank you to have written it. The S.Martin was an old monastery, and as long as the renovation of the building was going further, the owner has had to deal with the reality of the structure in order to manage rooms, services etc. Some decisions...
