“Makes a layover pleasant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

On my flight to Roatan, there was a delay and I stayed here. Taca chose this hotel and I thought it was very good. Yes, there was an armed guard, but so does nearly every other hotel in Central America, even the nice resorts. It is close (not to walk), the shuttle is timely and every 30 minutes to the airport. The staff was very pleasant (including a couple of months later when I needed a copy of a receipt). The rooms were very clean and what I would expect from a hotel for a layover. The pool and the grounds were very nice. The buffet at breakfast, lunch and dinner was exceptional, as there was a large selection of food, including a chef to make things like omelettes and pastas, depending on the meal. If you are only laid over in San Salvador, don't be put off by this hotel, it was very nice.

The hotel itself was average. I must say I did not feel safe at all but it was not just the hotel that made me feel this way it is the whole country. The people at the hotel were nice. However, as soon as I could I I took a flight out. The airlines I took was better than the hotel .

I arrived late night into San Salvador and decided to stay in the closet hotel i could find to the airport as the road to San Salvador dark and the drive is about 45 minutes.
So I stayed at the Quality Hotel Real. Happens that from what i have heard and seen of other "Quality hotels" i did not expect much - however i was happily surprised.
They have a shuttle every 30 minutes to the airport, the reception staff was SOOOO helpful and just made you feel right at home.
The rooms are well equipped, the breakfast had a good selection.
I'd stay again :)

While traveling to roatan Honduras one of our flights was cancelled and my wife and I we're put up here by taca airlines. When they told me the name of the hotel I would be staying in I wasn't thrilled when on vacation I am picky about where I stay. As we pulled up there was a armed gaurd witch was a little concerning But I have to say the people and amenities were great. I would not stay there if i was visiting san salvedor but only becuase of how far it is from the city this is a great layover hotel 5 minutes to the airport and there is a free shuttle each way the rooms are very nice and clean also we were surprised to see so many Americans but I guess it issued as barracks for our navy personnel. The bar and pool were beautiful

I stayed here for 6 months can say it wasn't too bad though, but after a while it does get old. The staff is willing to help you out for anything, and they all speak English rather well. For those that go you'll run into lots of US Navy personnel, they can be from laid back to drunk, don't let this deter you from your stay, because when the senior enlisted hear about guests not liking what they are doing they will do something about it. Apart from that, it's not a bad place to stay, you'll find that the food is good and the breakfasts quite good, especially the papusa on the weekends.

I stayed from 2009-2010.

Room Tip: Sometimes it's hard to get a good room with almost 100 Navy personnel, but it shouldn't be t...

goods:
- all the amenities you expect from an international chain hotel
- nice staff, perfect English, free shuttle to the airport
- low prices for an international hotel (high prices for the country)

Bads:
- in the middle of nowhere (highway to the airport and nothing else)
- air con engines are attached to the windows so it is quite noisy, especially in open areas (swimming pool, for example)

I wasn't sure what to expect with the Quality Hotel as its been years since I was in San Salvador. Not to worry, this place could just as easily been an airport hotel in the U.S., and that is what I would compare it to. Nice, clean, gated, and up to date. I felt extremely secure at all times. Not only was there extra security at the gate screening new arrivals, but there were also a large percentage of guests who were clearly U.S. military. There is an excellent free breakfast buffet with delicious local variations on traditional breakfast staples. Do not miss the pupusas! (They were the best part of the breakfast and were handmade and grilled by a local lady while you wait)
