“Good value, excellent location, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

Hotel de Maria was where we stayed during our few days in San Salvador. The hotel is in situated in an excellent location (Zona Rosa), very safe, walking distance to many restaurants and other hotels. It is also right by the Tica Bus (Central America transportation) ticket terminal. The facility is very clean, staff is very friendly, our room was towards the back so very quiet, the room size is good, has AC and free wi-fi. There is a very nice patio that is used as a dining area, but in between our excursions we used to sit there and relax with a drink. We stayed there the first two nights, then returned for the last night before we left the country.
It was refreshing to stay in an unassuming place where you actually can get to meet the locals and stay away from big hotel chains. If you are looking for luxury, this place is not for you. But if you want good value, a clean place, friendly staff and something a bit low key, this hotel definitely won't disappoint.

Overpriced and basic.
staff don't seem to know anything nor are very helpful.
Too much easy business from Ticabus I suspect
Only worth staying I would say if you are two or more people wanting a room together and are travelling on with Tica. For that, it is undeniably convenient and the easiest best option.
otherwise, single travellers, try Hostel Australiano down 500m down the road near plaza beethoven
