And enjoyed a delightful and delicious dinner in the restaurant. Would definitely return and look forward to... More

This boutique truly is a gem. Large, clean and well appointed rooms. Breakfast set up just for guests. Stunning landscape. Friendly staff. On site restaurant one of the best in the city! Although I'd like to keep this place my little secret I have to recommend it.

Casa ILB is a boutique hotel conveniently situated in San Salvador. The service is friendly and attentive and the rooms large and pleasant. The restaurant (lunch and dinner) is outstanding. Breakfast is served in the garden. Appeals to a discerning clientele.

Fabulous. Gorgeous. Modern. Chic. Not exactly the words you usually hear used to describe hotels in San Salvador. Casa ILB is all of those. You definitely feel like you are in Italy while you are here, which is the intention of the Italian owner, and he succeeds beautifully. The hotel's restaurant, while quite pricey, is also one of the best... More

Stayed here with my partner and his parents on our last two nights in El Salvador and it was our favourite hotel of the bunch! The grounds are gorgeous, the rooms are massive, and the staff are extremely friendly and hospitable. The staff speak a variety of languages among them (Spanish, English, Italian) and are always willing to help. Samaria,... More

A Salvadoran friend suggested I stay at Casa ILB (the official name on the receipt). Stay here if you want personal attention in a lovely house converted into a boutique hotel. If you want to be an anonymous visitor, stay at a one of the chain hotels. The room was huge, the king bed comfortable, the breakfast was just what... More
