This is a great place for someone who is looking for a quiet and pleasant time. The good or breakfast that is included is very good. It is a bit hard to find. Parking could be an issue because you parked on the street.

The rooms are comfortable and there is AC, hot water and wifi - a definite plus. However, I and a few other guests in the hotel had a few small items stolen (we can only assume by the cleaning ladies). Breakfast...is...just awful - Cold toast with a slab of butter and jam, coffee with no milk or heavily sweetened orange... More

Stayed at the Hotel La Posada del Rey Primero in February at the start of our trip through Cental America. Service was mediocre at best. The front desk staff at night on arrival was friendly and accomodating. The staff the next morning was anything but helpful or friendly. There is no WiFi at the hotel and no computer for use...

A pleasant enough hotel, though slightly out of the way. The staff were helpful and courteous, the room was clean and comfortable, and there isn't really anything good or bad to say about this place. If you want an easy overnight stay in San Salvador, this will be fine, but anything more, you may want to look for something with... More

I went to San salvador for vacations and I stayed in this beutiful place. If you are looking for a different place to stay. Its colorfull and so nice for a good time of relaxing your body and mind. I was so happy that they have a good location closer to Paseo del Escalon. I really love the place. I... More

Staying at this restful, beautiful urban inn was like visiting a relative. My tropical green room with real art on the walls made my visit to San Salvador even better. I stayed 4 nites and did not want to leave. The staff members are friendly and helpful. The happy colors, tropical plants and thoughtful art choices make this a cozy... More

This hidden jewel in hte heart of the city is San Salvadors best kept secret. once you walk thru the front gate you are transended into a lovely paradise. the furnishings, art and faux wall finishings made me feel like I was in Antigua Guatemala or San miguelle De Allende Mexico. It had different patios, Big comfortable rooms with comfortable... More

As opposed to the other review here, I´d say "More than Adequate and Quite Special!" This hotel has the most character of a dozen hotels I´ve visited in San Salvador. Most have that generic modern feel that could place them anywhere in the world or just are not up to par on cleanliness for the prices they charge. This hotel... More

I guess the "Rey Primero" is Jesus, given the extent to which His visage is displayed throughout the hotel; but don't worry, there was no proselytizing by the staff and no Bibles on the bedside tables. The room was a little small but, along with the bathroom, had wonderful views over the neighborhood and out to the surrounding hills and... More
