“Beautiful location - lovely hotel”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

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.

Room Tip: if you like to swim by hot weather: outside the city at direction to Bari you will find several org...

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 of wifi. Great value!

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 plays an eclectic mix of music and ear plugs are essential if you're early to bed! The staff are very friendly and helpful but perhaps a little 'amateurish'? It wasn't very professional seeing them congregate in the courtyard for smoking breaks. Overall though it was a very pleasant three night stay and the Centro Storico of Giovinazzo, where the hotel is located, is a remarkable place. It's a bit like staying in a film set.

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.
My coworker had a great room. Unfortunately, mine was very small. I'm not a big girl by no standards, and I found the bathroom to be tight. The shower was way too small, and the plastic curtain kept sticking everywhere... Not the best time there. Also, I do a lot of work remotely, and there is no wifi signal from the rooms. Supposedly you should be able to access it from the reception, but I had little luck. Having to Skype with my boss while sitting on the front steps was not the best experience...

If you are looking for a good place to vacation away from modern technology this hotel is a way to go. However, if you like your internet, and would prefer to have a bathroom that you can actually move around in I suggest a different place.

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!
