We recently spent 3 nights here, and I had to take photos of every nook, it is so cozy, yet with its open breakfast area/patio, so breezy and open. Our room overlooked the patio, and was nice and cool without A/C. The breakfasts were delicious, and were included in the price - be sure to try the El Salvador "desayuno... More

If you want to explore the city this place is perfectly located in a safe neighbourhood,close to the boulevard de Los heroes (15 minute walk). Breakfast is included and fleshly cooked (even the scrambled eggs). Staff was extremely helpful in finding our way through the country. Last but not least the place is clean and looks nice.

This is one of the best places we've stayed whilst travelling over the last 10 months. The owner was really friendly and helpful - gave us maps and an umbrella - and the rest of the staff were really friendly too. It's like a 2* hotel (European standard) - clean, quiet, AC and fan, good wifi, cable TV, very comfortable... More

We just visited San Salvador for the first time and had a wonderful experience here. The room was clean, the staff was friendly and the breakfast was very nice. I would recommend this to anyone taking a trip to San Salvador and would definitely stay here again.

Myrna and family as well as Ezequiel were friendly and attentive. The place is clean and comfortable. On my second day at the inn, I left my car keys locked inside. The whole family came to our rescue, and all in the most sincere and beautiful manner. My wife and I loved the place and when returning to San Salvador,... More

We booked this as a safe/convenient/affordable option in San Salvador on arrival in the evening. It's ideal for the first few nights in a new county. The hotel arranged an airport pickup which was there and waiting and the rooms are really quiet in terms of outside traffic noise etc. There are a handful of restaurants within a two minute... More

The excellent reviews here are not exaggerating. This is the best value, friendliest and cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in (and I have been living mainly in hotels around the world for the past three years). I came for a while and stayed a month. Here you are not just a hotel customer, you are made to feel totally... More
