The room is average...they need to give it a bit of spruce up...some of the bathroom fixtures need a bit of maintenance. The carpet needs a bit of deep cleaning. The whole staff was friendly and very helpful.

I Recently visited San Salvador in a business trip and for first time I used the Holliday Inn for lodging. I have to admit that they exceed my expectations on almost everything. Starting with location which is fantastic. They are close to a complete variety of stores, restaurants, malls and just in front of my favorite coffee store chain (... More

Very clean hotel. Would stay here again. Felt safe at all times in this hotel and in this location. Had to call for maintenance once due to toilet backing up and the maintenance guy did not speak English very well. Luckily I did speak Spanish so we could communicate well enough.

How about super awesome staff? Yes, that is exactly what you get from this Holiday Inn. I have stayed in many Holiday Inn hotels, but never one quite as impressive as this one.

For the price this is a great hotel. Lobby is inviting, room is clean & comfy, staff is friendly & helpful. Breakfast is adequate for this type of hotel--but I'd add better quality bread or croissants. My room AC was difficult to control. It was usually too cold. Luckily I didn't need it much and the fan was enough. Room... More

Just had the pleasure of spending three nights at this hotel. Attentive staff, quiet and safe location. The hotel is located in the next block past the American Embassy. It's a safe place for an early morning walk or run. Restaurant is OK, but you will want to explore other options - other than breakfast. Will definitely stay there again.
