I stayed at Ximenas for one week, as I used it as base to explore the rest of El Salvador. The hotel is located in a great and safe neighborhood called Colonia Central America. It is within 5 minutes walking distance to many restaurants, and 15 minutes by foot to the Metrocentro Mall. It is 40 minutes by car to the airport. Many beaches are only 30 minutes by car.
My room was a single with a private bath. The room was clean, and daily service was adequate. Must supply own shampoo and soap. Water pressure did suffer at times, and I was told this was common for 2nd floor rooms. There was also hot water, cable TV, and A/C. There is parking space for 2 cars, and there is 24 hour food service in the kitchen.
The staff (Oscar and America) were great, friendly, and extremely helpful. This is without a doubt the finest budget hotel I have been at in Central America. You will not be disappointed.
