Beds are comfy, A/C comfortable, buffet is pricey but you don't have to eat there. The staff was kind, friendly, and attentive. They accommodated us when we arrived too early and let us leave our bags with the concierge while we were out all day.

Enjoyed 3 nights in this excellent hotel situated in the best part of San Salvador! First night included the Premier Lounge & it was well worth the additional price. Room was lovely with beautiful windows to enjoy the view of the city & surrounding mountains. Excellent service. Highly recommend.

This is our favorite hotel to stay when visiting El Salvador. The staff is by far the most friendly and professional we have experienced. The furnishings may be a little outdated but the hotel is clean with comfy beds nice showers and most importantly friendly staff every where.

Came in on business to take care of a few things and was not expecting too much from this visit but, to my surprise it was a great stay with friendly staff and clean room. Now I'm planning to come back and bring my family.
