Superb service. Staff were pleasant, multi-lingual, and very service oriented. Excellent room - clean, modern, everything worked. Internet was fast. Used the Executive Lounge. Food was excellent. Would certainly return to this hotel for either business or pleasure.

I went to San Salvador (El Salvador) several times, and always stayed in Hilton. It's a very nice hotel, very fancy, but with a reasonable price; probably due to the country economy status. (For the native this is probably a very expensive place) Anyway, the staff are great. They really try to make you feel as confortable as possible. The... More

Overall had a great experience at the Princess Hilton. We basically used the 12 night stay to sleep, we didn't eat at the restaurants, or use the gym. The restaurant was pricey and the gym looked clean and had lots of machines. Used pool once, very nice! Hotel had 2 computers with internet access, always available when I used them.... More

room carpet dirty; most of my stay; I was afraid of getting a bacteria in my feet. The gym has broken machines, the steam room smells bad; carpet in the open areas need to be cleaned; internet should be free for hotel guest; I stayed in this hotel back in 2008, and they have not updated the rooms at all.

I was the presenter to a large group of customers at this hotel. In addition to the business event, I really enjoyed my stay at the hotel and the responsiveness of the staff. The executive lounge was easily accessible and had generous hours for free food and drinks.

This is a very nice hotel with a great location in the Zona Rosa. The service is fantastic and the entire staff is very nice. The lobby is very nice and so is the Churchill bar, though inside the bar tends to be a little sleepy. The pool is not amazing but it's serviceable. It is oddly off the lobby,... More
