Truely a very good place to stay when in San Salvador. Family run, overall clean, secure, very good breakfast. Rooms in my experience are small but typical to many smaller B&B and budget hotels / hostels and always clean accommodations and linens.

We stayed here after flying into El Salvador for a six week holiday. We chose this hostal which is infact more like a hotel due to it being in the safer part of town. The hostal is a ten minute taxi ride away from downtown and there is nothing really around in the neighborhood. There was nobody else staying in... More

We went to San Salvador for a Zoe concert (which was unfortunately cancelled). This place was located only minutes away from good restaurants, a university, and the concert venue. Staff were helpful and I enjoyed the breakfast. Extra points for "show" as the "chef" brings out your breakfast in full garb, chef hat, etc. Aircon was definitely necessary in San... More

We recently spent 3 nights here, and I had to take photos of every nook, it is so cozy, yet with its open breakfast area/patio, so breezy and open. Our room overlooked the patio, and was nice and cool without A/C. The breakfasts were delicious, and were included in the price - be sure to try the El Salvador "desayuno... More

If you want to explore the city this place is perfectly located in a safe neighbourhood,close to the boulevard de Los heroes (15 minute walk). Breakfast is included and fleshly cooked (even the scrambled eggs). Staff was extremely helpful in finding our way through the country. Last but not least the place is clean and looks nice.

This is one of the best places we've stayed whilst travelling over the last 10 months. The owner was really friendly and helpful - gave us maps and an umbrella - and the rest of the staff were really friendly too. It's like a 2* hotel (European standard) - clean, quiet, AC and fan, good wifi, cable TV, very comfortable... More

Myrna and family as well as Ezequiel were friendly and attentive. The place is clean and comfortable. On my second day at the inn, I left my car keys locked inside.

We booked this as a safe/convenient/affordable option in San Salvador on arrival in the evening. It's ideal for the first few nights in a new county. The hotel arranged an airport pickup which was there and waiting and the rooms are really quiet in terms of outside traffic noise etc. There are a handful of restaurants within a two minute... More
