Nice location and beautiful surroundings. Upon arrival were just handed the key and left to our own devices not really knowing how things worked like air conditioning, when and if we could get something at the bar, etc. It was a bit like they weren't ready for guests. As the weekend progressed, we figured that all we had to do... More

We made a day of reservation to stay at San Martin hotel due to an early flight from Bari the next morning. The old building is interesting, the rooms and furniture are quirky and the operation of the hotel is somewhat less than well oiled. But, in lieu of staying at an airport hotel, the little seaside town is atmospheric... More

Giovinazzo,is THE place to visit for us, a Norwegian family, who wants to get away from places full of tourists and experience a genuine small Italian village with a lot of local resturants with good Italian food. The hotel is a historical place, and old monastery, converted to a comfortable hotel with a spectacular view. We even had the roof... More

This hotel was a real disappointment. We had a confirmation number that we received from our travel agent, who booked the hotel in May.

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 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
