“great location and excellent staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

I am really glad I chose to stay here - it is small enough that you feel taken care of personally, but yet can have quiet and privacy when you choose. Also, as a traveler who speaks Spanish but is sometimes a bit limited, it was comforting to have bilingual owners Gretchen and Camilo. If you are new to El Salvador like I was, then this is a great starting-off point. You can also walk, closely and safely, to amenities - I had a pedicure a few blocks away, met some friendly local police, and grabbed snacks at the modern supermarket right around the corner. As a solo, female traveler, the fantastic security staff and good location make a big difference too. Added nice bonus: really gorgeous and creative art all over the walls, which capture your interest when you are just relaxing and hanging out. Ask about tours / rides & drop-offs etc too, because they are very amenable for this too. Cheers Camilo y Gretchen!

Room Tip: yes, as some of the reviews point out, a number of the rooms are dark and no window to the outdoors...

Friendly staff, good service, safe, conveniently located, good parking, everything works. This is a great little place. We stayed twice for business reasons and once with my family. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and all our expectations were full filled. The location of the hotel is perfect and very near everything. The staff are very nice and very serviceminded. The rooms are nice and quite big. Everything worked fine. The beds are quite good. The cleaning is ok, but could be better. We had breakfast at the hotel and it was so and so.

Thank you Camilo and Gretchen and please extend it to Doris, Mirna, Luis and the rest of the staff. I'll recommend this hotel to all my friends and family traveling to El Salvador.

Overall stay was fine. Nothing really to complain about. I was a bit disappointed with the breakfast and the cleanliness of the bathroom. Shower was plugged. However, staff was lovely, location was great and price was good.

When we arrived to San Salvador we were a bit worried as nobody was speaking English (and we can't speak Spanish). However, when we checked in this hotel, we met Gretchen and all our concerns are gone. Hotel is nice, location and breakfast is good but it is really all about Gretchen. She arranged our bus tickets, helped us on bank, showed all the places to visit. She and her husband are like friends. Try this hotel and reward this attitude. You won't be disappointed, promise.

My mother and I were visiting relatives in ES and needed quick lodgings for a week. We were very lucky to remember the recommendation of our bank manager for the Morrison.

I have never before been welcomed and greeted so warmly by hotel staff. The double room was a bit dark, but clean, comfortable, cozy and quiet. The beds were large and comfortable, so we slept soundly each night. The free WiFi signal was strong once I located the power outlets. The TV in our room was a bit old and the volume had be turned up to compete with the A/C, so we read books instead. Shower water pressure was good and the water was hot. My mom particularly liked the provided coconut soap and mango shampoo and when she mentioned it to the staff, they gave her a bunch of it to take home with her. Definitely a nice and appreciated touch.

The complimentary breakfast was authentic and delicious and served by friendly staff. They were patient and helpful with my halting Spanish.

After a day, I was walking the neighborhood and visiting local stores. I was disappointed by a few things (size of the pool/lack of a bar) but the warmth of the people here outweigh those concerns. Just as we were truly settled, it was time to leave. I would have loved to stay longer. Dora at the front desk told my mom that even though she had only been there a short time, she had grown quite fond of her. It was a very enjoyable stay and we would stay here again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended and a great value!

Room Tip: We received a room on the first floor to cut down on the number of stairs for my elderly mom. Remem...
