We stayed one night at Hotel Tazumal House while stopping over on our way to Peru. All in all, we found the stay very pleasant -- the room was spacioius and comfortable, we enjoyed the nice common areas (a small sitting room outside the guest rooms, a computer for guest use in the lobby, courtyard, etc.) The staff was attentive...

I only stayed at Tazumal for a night so it wouldn't be entirely fair to read this as conclusive, but it's a great little place. A little far out from the Tica terminal i arrived in around San Benito, but set in a spookily quiet neighbourhood in which every house has a security gate. The hotel itself isn't one larger... More

Looking at the map of San Salvador we didn't know where to stray, but we were elated that we chose Hotel Tazumal. The city bus is only a block or two away and was fairly easy to navigate (especially with the assistance of hotel staff). There are a lot of decent restaurants and sights in the area as well. Don't... More

I stayed here 3 nights and would stay again. My room was quite roomy and had a view of the Volcano. The prices includes bfast, free drinking water, free internet (altho all places seem to have this now). The staff were super friendly and helpful. It is 15 minutes to the Metrocentro - a large and busy mall and another... More

The staff at this hotel were friendly, but the room was extremely small and cramped and the price really was not competitive with other hotels we later found in better areas of the city. The neighborhood is quite a walk from anything of interest. We found the Hotel Meson de Maria cheaper and in a much better neighborhood. In fact,... More

This was a good find for us with all comfort factors: AC, clean room, clean bathroom and wifi. We were both sick so it was a good place to recover. For $40 it's a good find. We spent abit on taxi: $10usd (to Tica bus office and then dropped off at Gallerias shopping). 2am taxi ride to Tica bus stop... More

As a travelling couple we stayed just one night here in San Salvador, but we would have happily stayed longer if we didn't have onward plans. We received a warm welcome (without reservation) in the evening and were given a number of room options. The beds were sooo comfy, new mattresses and the sheets were crisp and clean. The shared...

Stayed here for 2 nights in April 2012. They arranged a taxi for us from the Pullmantur bus station, which was a pleasant surprise when we arrived. The hotel is in a safe area, very secure, our room was nice and clean, it had 1 double and 1 single bed, a/c, cable tv, bathroom (our shower was cold tho). On... More
