“All fantastic, Location, Staff, Apartment and Price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We stayed a week at this apartment hotel. The best location for the money in San Salvador. This is located in Zona Rosa with many, many restaurants within walking distance, deluxe as well as fast food. A very secure area of San Salvador. A supermarket is located within 10 minutes' walk so you can do your own cooking if you want as there is a full kitchen.
PJ, Esperanza and Carlos were all super helpful. Esperanza found a great tour operator for us and arranged all the sightseeing tours for us with El Salvador Travel Plan, formerly know as Murray Travel Plan. They are also highly recommended and their prices were half of other tour operators.

PJ speaks and writes excellent English and answer your emails immediately.

They have the cutest little pool and we had our breakfast there every morning. You can choose between six different a la carte menus.

Wi Fi is good everywhere on the property.

The National Museum of Anthropology is within walking distance and well worth a visit. The elegant Bistro restaurant annexed to the museum offers excellent value lunch specials.

Rooms are very big for the price. Not overly luxurious but functional and clean. Staff were very friendly when we arrived. Walking distance to good restaurants and shops in a safe area. Noise does travel between rooms a little bit too easily.

I stayed in Apartamentos Maria Jose for work. The place was quiet, full of light and with good wireless Internet connection. The apartments are very spacious and clean with all the facilities one might need: fridge, silent air con, stove, kitchen equipment, tv, etc. The decoration is not the most modern but it is pleasant enough. Service is impeccable.
Location wise is perfect, between the Sheraton and the Hilton, close to embassies and public administration buildings. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and a shopping mall a short drive away. It is on the way to Santa Tecla, a lively town to go out at night.
The area is also rather safe which is important for those who like to walk.
I'll keep stating there every time I go to El Salvador.

This apart-hotel is very centrally located, it is close to commercial areas with plenty of food options. The area is safe. The apartments have one big room with a bathroom, TV with cable. The living room, dinning area and Kitchenette are well furnished. Breakfast can be requested to the room, they provide a menu with great local dishes. Laundry can be provided. Staff are friendly and helpful, PJ can manage to resolve any request. Just ask. I recommend this hotel for short or long stays, location, price and quality are top.

Room Tip: All rooms have good light and are confortable.

After looking at several hotels around the same price we found this one to be the best value. The rooms are a one bedroom apartment with full facilities including AC, tv etc. Located in a very safe up market part of San Salvador we could walk to a wide choice of restaurants and bars. The staff were very friendly and helpful and understood enough English to make our stay enjoyable. If we were to come back we would definitely stay here again.

The apartment is very spacious. We have a tv in the bedroom with lots of channels. The bathroom was also very clean. The area is safe and can walk to many shops. Breakfasts were served in the apartment and they were yummy.

Overall, value is good and good quality.
