Hotel San Martin is a beautiful place to stay. It's proximity to the walled city, helpful people at reception, excellent room service raise its points. They accommodated our preferences for kind of room. Breakfast was ok, it could have been better.

We stayed with Hotel San Martin for a week. Great Hotel! They have a wonderful staff. The property is older, but well maintained and very clean. The AC works well and they have hot water with good pressure. The wi fi is slow, but works and is accessible throughout the property. Thank you Nelson, Erik, Evelin, Orlando, Mauricio, and Lourdes...
