I love this hotel. It is a small hotel but perfect for our vacation. The place is clean, staff are attentive they are always happy to help. Breakfast is included in the stay and was delicious. The hotel is located in a prime tourist zone with a lot of restaurants and things to do around. The location is also safe we walk around and we feel safe people around are friendly too just try to blend in do no go there flashing expensive stuff and you not going to have any problems. We are so happy to stay at villa florencia hotel.
The location is very good, close to best areas of San Salvador. We ended up staying at this hotel due to lack of availability at our usual hotel. We had a reservation with 2 rooms, however they only had the reservation for one room. The lady at the front desk gave us another room. The rooms are beyond small, and they only offer sheets, no blankets. We slept with the AC off but it was still hot, even if El Salvador is very hot. So, you may want to ask for an extra blanket. Overall, it's an OK hotel.
It's a small hotel ideal for work traveling or when on a budget, although not luxurious, everything was in good condition, A/C, bathrooms and the room itself. Service is good and specially during breakfast, the ladies are very attentive.
The rooms are comfortable with air conditioning which I did not need to use. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is basic but good. Location is very good close to Sheraton for the Pullman bus terminal to Guatemala City. Will stay here again in future. Very good value.
We arrived late at night to find out the lazy owners had not even checked the emails sent from Booking.com and they had rented out our rooms. Yes, you are reading right. We reserved on Monday for two double rooms on that same Thursday and we arrived with our confirmation to a full hotel, we were not even on the reservation list. When they checked their email, our reservation was right there with all the other reservations they did not bother to read. Even worse, they had not even bothered to take down the rooms from Booking.com and on line you could still reserve in the hotel even when there was no vacancy. Very irresponsible people, stay away from this dump that advertises free parking but had cars parked in the street. After a very long 45 minutes at 1 AM, the owner, Ms, Bellini Siguenza, tried to get us into a hotel in a not so nice part of town even though the Sheraton next door had space...they just did not want to pay for it. We chose San Benito for safety reasons, I was not about to go to a not so good part of town at that time in the early morning. There was no compensation whatsoever (not that I wanted it, I just wanted to sleep) and we even got a nasty attitude from the person at the front desk: "how dare we get mad for them not keeping up their part of the LEGALLY BINDING contract". Horrible attitude. Stay far, far away from this hotel, they should not be allowed to run a hotel with such poor attitude. First time in my life I have a situation like this and I am on the go about 120 days every year...just plain terrible attitude.…
This is a very nice hotel and much cheaper than the Sheraton which is down the street. Staff is extremely helpful and nice. Hotel is about 100 meters from a bunch of food trucks that are open for dinner every night except Sunday. My only complaint is that the hot water is closer to warm than hot. Overall it's an excellent choice for someone visiting San Salvador.
I just stayed here for two weeks on a business trip, and it's all been said already. The staff speak little to no English, but they really know how to run a hotel smoothly. My room was spacious for the price paid, with a nice A/C, TV, and shower. It also came with a small patio / safe zone (for earthquakes and emergencies) that had a few tropical plants. Daily housekeeping was great, and the breakfast crew will cheer you up as you start your day. The portions are somewhat small, but it's good homemade (made to order) ...and it's free. Overall it seemed like a mostly younger/local crowd, but with the exception of one night things were very quiet by 9 or 10. It's easy to catch a cab, as there are three drivers who hang around the front entrance most of the time. I got overcharged pretty obviously on my one ride down the street in a rainstorm, but there's a pricing chart available for common destinations (and you should always ask ahead of time). The reason I didn't need cabs is that the surrounding neighborhood has 8-10 very good restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk. I highly recommend The Green House and Pomodoro for "foreign" cuisine, and any of the local small cafeterias for assorted Salvadorian lunches. The area is relatively safe (largely residential), and there are guards on just about every corner any way (as is standard in the city). The two museums (MARTE and Museo de Antropologia) are both within walking distance, and the latter gives a wonderful history of the country with most exhibits translated into English. If I'm nitpicking, the only complaints I can come up with are some small stains on the sheets and the noise on the patio when it rained. Neither of these would prevent me from returning. On the other hand, the wi-fi was outstandingly reliable, and everyone on staff was happy to have you staying with them. **Heads Up** They charge your card the full amount upon check-in, which surprised me but ended up not being an issue.…
I was given a suite and they gave me a cheaper price for cash so I thought it a real bargain. The suite was cleaned every day but if they provided the equipment I could have washed my own dishes. The cable tv was great but with an upgraded remote I could have watched more english channels. Wifi worked really well in the room. Breakfast was included but it was very light. The mattresses was comfy but they don't provide blankets. I requested a blanket and got something not much thicker than a sheet so I didn't sleep well. It was lovely and quiet. The staff do not speak English so I was unable to arrange any tours. I had to rely on their non English speaking drivers who charged very high prices for their services. It is located near the Sheraton hotel and the modern arts museum but not much else. It is walking distance to some fast food outlets but I was continually told of how dangerous San Salvador is that I was too afraid to do much and glad to get away. There is is first class bus service to Guatemala City located at the Sheraton which I recommend …
This little hotel was a home away from home for my family and myself. We booked the 3 bedroom 3 bathroom suite and were more than happy and actually quite impressed, by the level of service from the Villa Serena staff. Breakfast is also delicious, and they will ask you what it is you wish for them to make for you. They literally fuss over you and are concerned about making your stay with them a pleasant one. There is also a massage and hairdressing salon at the property, which comes in handy if/when you need to use it. The only negative, and this is not the hotel's fault, is that, because it's so close to the Museum of Art which tends to host weddings and other type of events, it can be quite noisy at night. But if it's night life you're after, this place is great as it's right in San Benito, a place full of restaurants and supermarkets. Tip: if you feel like cooling off (the hotel does not have a pool) you can use the pool at the Sheraton Presidente IF you consume at their restaurant. Overall loved my stay at Villa Serena and will continue to stay there in future ocassions.…
Value for your money. Its a nice hotel, well located and most important VERY CLEAN. All personel is very kind. I have being here for almost 4 months. Its perfect if you just need a place to sleep if you come for business or pleasure.
