Was looking for a place to stay over the weekend and this was the closest in the city. Room/bathroom were very clean. Our room had microwave and mini fridge which are great for drinks and snacks. Free Wifi only in the lobby. Continental breakfast was great and coffee was good! I would definitely come back!

My wife and I stayed here from a friday to a sunday the last week of july 2013. We arrived and met Luis at the front desk, he was smiling and after we requested a room with one bed he quickly made the switch. The room was spacious including the bathroom.

In the morning we had the breakfast buffette (included in the price) and found that was a full traditional Salvadorean breakfast, still they had several items to choose from including fresh fruit

We did not have an issue with the building nor the company, but we were treated not to well by the night time front desk person (alex cubias) who was very rude when he insisted that our friends did not make a reservation when I was the one who made it since they do not speak spanish. Please do not use this as an excuse not to stay at the location.

We stayed for 2 nights and both mornings were very quiet and the attention from the hotel staff did not change any. We liked it alot. The grounds around the hotel are very well kept and the only thing missing is a swimming pool but not a deal breaker.

Take care of yourself........ first.

I stayed here four times whilst travelling throughout Central America. The rooms were a standard chain room but that meant that everything worked, they were clean and cool and had a nice solid feel about them. I liked the open plan layout of the floors and the free wirleless internet in the rooms was a real bonus. The breakfast was good and the location not bad at all. I enjoyed my walks to the nearby shoping mall and further afield. The security was first class, staff excellent and helpful to a tee. I would thoroughly recommend staying here if you need to spend a day or two in San Salvador. The laundry service was excellent. A large washing machine and dryer downstairs allowed me to get all of my laundry done in one go for 8 US. Yes I know that a cheap laundry would be cheaper but you have to find one, then carry all of the clothing and then collect it. For 8 US dollars I doubt you could get more than two or three drinks back in the US.

We arrived from a red-eye flight at 1 am, all that we wanted was go to the hotel and sleep nice, well, from the very first moment in the middle of the night the front desk person was very nice. He informed that our room included free breakfast too, our first good surprise was when we got to the room, it has a small kitchen with pretty much everything except a stove, I tough that was wonderful, specially when you have a 8 months old baby.
We did like a lot too, that was simple but neat, and spacious we were 2 adults with 2 kids, there were 2 queen beds, and we still setup the travel crib for our little one.
At breakfast this was the best!!!, we were expecting the typical "American" breakfast....NO WAY, they have a chef! with a table buffet style, my husband and big kid are very picky and didn't like the eggs with vegetables that they were offering..., when I asked her if she could get me some eggs without anything.., she even asked me, if I really didn't want to add something..., well she cooked eggs with ham, just at the way my family likes, and that right there, I can not give them less than 5 stars.
This people really care about COMFORT and pamper their guest!
By the way I am bilingual English-spanish (I know not so good in the first one, hehehe), but my Hubie doesn't talk Spanish in all. But the front desk people were full bilingual in a dawn good English!

This is not a luxurious hotel, but it definitely has everything one needs for a comfortable stay as far as business trips go. I have stayed here a few times in the past 18 months.

Some of the things I like
* Free and fast wifi
* Nice and clean rooms (at least the last three times that I have visited)
* Buffet breakfast, though not the most extravagant and varied in San Salvador, has enough of the basics to keep one happy (variety of fruits, egg menu varieties, cereals, types of bread, etc)
* Secluded area not in the business district
* Nice lush patio area makes one forget one is in the most deforested country in Central America
* Good ol' true Salvadoran hospitality

Some of the things I do not like
* Towels have low thread count, leading one to need two towels instead of one to get oneself dry after a shower
* Not all cabbies know this address by heart, unlike bigger hotels like Holiday Inn, etc (better to keep the address on record)
* No external restaurants within walking distance

Overall, I think that looking at the price vs. what one gets (in other words, value) this is a great option for a business traveller in San Salvador

It`s a small hotel, comfortable rooms however the cleanness of the rooms can be improved. Good restaurant and great location. It has a small gym, pool and free wifi. If you are planning on staying much time on the hotel I would not recommend it.

This is a small hotel with comfortable thematic rooms (energy, relax, ect.), good food, and bar with a nice wine list. The hotel offers professional messages onsite. The rooms are clean and attractive (nice lighting and linens); each day there is a small gourmet snack left on the small desk. A nice experience.

I try to visit my home land every year and when I do I always stay at this hotel. It has a great location in San Salvador, it is very clean, service is awesome from the moment you enter the building. It has all you need in the rooms. House keeping is excellent and they have honest people working for them so your personal items are always safe. The area around the hotel it's safe but you always take caution of your surroundings in El Salvador any where you go. I recommend this hotel to any one that visit El Salvador that makes use of a hotel room to have a good sleep and keep your belongings safe. This hotel gives you the best for the value of your money. I will keep on staying at this hotel every time I visit El Salvador.

We were very skeptical about this hotel since the price was very affordable compared to the usual known hotel chains in San Salvador which had prices per night in the range of $120 - $200 per night at the moment. We just needed a one night in San Salvador so we thought to test our luck for around $45 per night hotel.
The hotel seems a bit hidden and the area is not the greatest in San Salvador but once you drive in it looks nice and decent. The receptionist was polite and answered all of our questions.
Our reservation had not gone through since it was a last minute booking through price line so we needed to send an e-mail to the receptionist with the price per night info from priceline.

Free Wi-Fi is available but the connectivity is not so good.

The room was clean and the bed was confortable.

Continental Breakfast/Salvadoran Breakfast was included per guess.

Private parking is available and a security guard is around to open and close the gate entrance.

Local calls are not possible from your room. You would have to come to the front desk for that.

Swimming pool and garden area is very well kept and clean.

At check-out the front desk was polite and helpful.

Cleaning staff and the cook who we met in the hallway were very nice and polite.

Over all: for a last minute one night in San Salvador with an affordable price... I WILL RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL.
