Based on other reviews I was really looking forward to my stay at Morrison Hotel de la Escalon. I booked a room through Despegar.com (via a link on tripadvisor). I received a confirmation email after booking and thought I was set. NOPE! After travelling all day with my family from Guatemala City I arrived to discover they were overbooked. They... More

The hotel is close to good restaurants and other amenities but without being too noisy. The staff is very friendly and everything is clean. A nice salvadoran breakfast is included. Basic, but it is highly convenient.

This is a very clean hotel. Ambiance feels like you were at home. Food was delicious, the service and kindness of employees, especially the receptionist Dori was outstanding, and the hotel location was walking distance to a shopping mall.

This is a nice budget hotel in good location of San Salvador. The hotel is very neat and clean. It provides all the basic requirements that one needs when staying away from the comfort of home. The staff in the front desk are really very helpful and cooperative. Even though they do not understand English, but they will try their... More

The hotel used to be a private property, and all the interior decorations make you feel like you are in someone's home, which is a great experience. The owner and the staff are all very friendly and helpful, they treat each other like families and they take great care of their customers. I got two free rides from the owner... More

The room is very comfortable (we stayed on main floor so no view at all! but safe and secure). The air conditioner worked but as we're not ac loving people, we did not do well with the lowest setting as the ac... More

This place is very quaint. The staff are extremely helpful and service minded at all times. From opening doors, room service, holding an umbrella out for us when it was raining to assisting us to back up our car during high traffic hours. Its was very easygoing. Once you are in your room you feel right at home. I will... More

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
