The Casa ILB is surely the best-kept secret in San Salvador. Far from the bustling crowds of the Metrocentro in the safe and leafy suburb of Zona Rosa, it provides the personalized service that very few hotels--even those that call themselves boutique hotels--still do. It is in a former neo-colonial mansion, each room an original room in the house with... More

Forget the endless hotel corridors and staff who work like machines! Staying at the Casa ILB gives you the feeling of staying at someone's home. When we arrived in the evening, the friendly barman of the restaurant showed us to our bedroom, which was modern, sober and comfortable. And very quiet! The breakfast lounge with garden sitting is pleasant and... More

Beautiful, quiet spaces, plushy beds and is filled with employees who will do anything to make your stay perfect. There is a quiet bar and the attached restaurant is rated #1 in San Salvador. It is also very safe and secure. I really loved this wonderful hotel.

Really terrific boutique hotel in the center of the Zona Rosa with lots of really nice touches: red velvet muffins on the bed on arrival, large 'rainmaker' shower, huge California King, and breakfast patio surrounded by flowers. The gin bar is also a real treat with a knowledgeable bartender, and a great selection of gins. The onsite restaurant is also... More

Casa ILB is a lovely city estate that has been turned into a restaurant and gorgeous inn. The room was well appointed with a very comfortable king bed, beautifully updated bathroom with a luxurious shower. The common areas are comfortable and chic. Samaria, the manager, greeted us warmly and attended to every need throughout our stay. Breakfast was simple but... More

The hotel is located in a safe, quiet neighbourhood. The restaurant is Italian as is the owner and the food is excellent. It was our second stay and we hope to return again soon. Major sites and some other hotels and restaurants are a short can ride away.

Fantastic place, modern and chic. The room was huge and the king bed comfortable. The breakfast was lovely; you can call to the kitchen for eggs, made to order. There is also a machine to make espresso. The hotel located in a very nice area, and is very close to safe walking area and fancy restaurants and bars in San... More

Casa ILB This is a tiny hotel of 5 rooms with an excellent restaurant. In fact, it's easier to think of it as a restaurant where you can stay overnight. The rooms are amazing. We stayed in suite #1. Very quiet. Super comfortable king sized bed. Nice bathroom with rainfall shower. Nice amenities. Breakfast was fine. There's a machine to... More

Incredible luxury for $160 USD/night. Large high-ceiling rooms, marble floors, giant walk in closet, designer furniture, flat screen TVs. Our favourite was the nicely manicured garden/patio area with complimentary espresso coffee, Dolce de Leche snacks and toffees! Our lovely English speaking host Talina gave us great advice on restaurants and places to visit in San Salvador. It is located in... More
