Cannot imagine why anyone would want to search further than the Morrison Hotel. My husband and I recently spent 10 days at this wonderful hotel while helping our son relocate to San Salvador. We speak no Spanish but because of Gretchen, the hotel's manager, who speaks fluent English and Spanish, we were able to navigate through the city. Our son... More

I've posted elsewhere that TripAdvisor ratings are not a straightforward "tick the box" exercise. The Morrison is rated at the top of San Salvador hotels, but not for the same reasons one might expect to find an Intercontinental or a Crowne Plaza high on the list. That complicated equation balancing cost, charm, cleanliness, convenience, and character just plain works out... More

This family owned and operated small hotel was a great choice for exploring San Salvador and surroundings. A prepared to order breakfast on their terrace looking across the city was a great place to start the day. The staff was friendly and welcoming, even with those with whom we did not share a language. The daughter-in-law and manager, Gretchen, was... More

We stayed for two nights after spending a week on the beach... it was a great location, very safe to walk and explore.

this is the perfect spot if you don't have a rental car. Galleria, wendy and a lot of other stores are within walking distance. Public transportation is around the corner. Great Access. Hotel itself is homie. WIFI is free and available in all areas including the rooms (something that was hard to get at other hotels).
