I had a nice stay in this hotel. The lobby was undergoing renovation, which made it unpleasant at times, but the kindness of the staff made up for it. The restaurant and room service are both very good. You can go across the street and find a variety of restaurants and fast food too. The room was clean and the...

The Holiday Inn in Sal Salvador is a nice hotel. The service is good and the location is also good. Just 100mt outside you can find a square where you can eat at many different small restaurants and it's safe to walk there. On the down side, the hotel lacks a bit of local style and is a bit overpriced

The hotel lobby was undergoing renovation so I didn't see it at its best. Rooms were fine, standard Holiday Inn. Very good location in terms of safety and nearby restaurants. Restaurant ok not great though free breakfast buffet was very good.

Clean, comfortable, very good location and quiet - what else would you expect from a hotel!?!?!?! Service, service staff and breakfast are very good - also with the price ($85 p/night) you get free wi-fi and free parking - a lot of restaurants a step away ... what else would you ask for?? recommended A LOT!!!

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.
