I've been traveling El Salvador for the past 15 years and nothing comes close to ILB il Bongustaio. Beautiful and spacious rooms, tranquil environment, perfect place for the business traveler to relax after a busy day. Bongustaio has always been the best restaurant in El Salvador, so coupled with the hotel it's an easy decision to stay here.

As other guests have pointed out; this is not the normal hotel experience. It's more like checking in to a room in a private members club of the kind that you find in London or New York. You're treated as a VIP from the moment you arrive. The general manager, Samaria, was extremely friendly, warm yet professional. The rooms are... More

Situated quite closely to the center of the town and surrounded by a beautiful garden, Casa ILB offers you a perfect place for retreat and tranquility in a crowded and sometimes hectic town. What you can expect here is not the kind of fully standardized, dull and bland service of the hotel chains of this world but rather personalized hospitality,... More

A hidden gem in the city of San Salvador. Beautifully arranged and furnished with unique and interesting design pieces - huge comfortable rooms - definitely a top choice for the aesthetically conscious traveller. The staff are very thoughtful - especially Samaria, the manager, was very lovely and helpful.

Our second trip to Casa IlB did not disappoint. We relaxed and felt pampered as soon as we arrived. The suite was huge and every detail is elegant luxury. Samaria and all the staff are very attentive and welcoming, but disappear into the background so you feel you have the place to yourself! Things seem to be cleaned and replenished... More

Casa IlB is a fantastic hotel. It has a modern but elegant feel to it, and is also a relaxing oasis for which to get away from the hustle and bustle of city, located just beyond the gates of the enclosed property. The hotel is situated in a safe part of town surrounded by great restaurants, museums, and night life.... More
