We had a very comfortable two individual nights here (separated by visit to Quirigua, Guatemala and Copan, Honduras). 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

I stayed here with a friend last week for 5 nights while I was in El Salvador visiting my sponsor child. Being young 23 year old girls we were a bit worried about the country, the people and the stay. We worried for nothing! It's a great location and is very safe to walk and explore and the staff are...

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
