Hotel San Jose Hostal
Ranked #17 of 54 San Salvador B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 8, 2010

I came upon this hotel 6 years ago and have returned to it every year since whether I am alone or with my groups. I take groups of 4-12 people and have always received very positive feedback from my group members about the hotel and, above all, the staff. The staff and the atmosphere are very professional, but also very homey. They go to great lengths to make sure you are comfortable. Breakfast is healthy and fresh, there are hot water showers, a comfortable central meeting/leisure area and three patio areas. The whole hotel sparkles with cleanliness. It is close to nightlife, a shopping center, and many restaurants (Las Fajitas is a wonderful restaurant on the same block). The staff are very hospitable and helpful, and are very willing to suggest things to do around the city and beyond. They have also been willing to take me to the places I need to go when I cannot arrange transportation.

Also, I know they offer extended-stay rates for language students and longer-term business stays. A friend of mine stayed there on my recommendation for three months while he was studying at a language school and was very pleased with everything.

I would recommend this hotel to solo travellers, business people, couples and groups. Tell them Anna sent you! :)

This is one of the nicest places I have stayed on my whole trip. The rooms and bathrooms are spotless, the breakfast delicious, the location excellent but best of all was the welcome I was given by the family who own the hostal. They could not have been more helpful. I was picked up from the bus station and even given a lift to the beach the next day . English and Spanish are spoken . No trip to El salvador is complete without a stay here.
