“A small Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

This family owned and operated small hotel was a great choice for exploring San Salvador and surroundings. A prepared to order breakfast on their terrace looking across the city was a great place to start the day. The staff was friendly and welcoming, even with those with whom we did not share a language. The daughter-in-law and manager, Gretchen, was a most valuable asset to our trip--helping us to plan what we did on our own in the city and taking us on a several hour tour of the volcano that overlooks the city and then on to Joya de Ceran and Lago Coatepeque. We felt like we were guests in a home--and, indeed, the hotel building was originally the home of the owner. The staff was very helpful in getting taxis and providing directions.

We stayed for two nights after spending a week on the beach... it was a great location, very safe to walk and explore. The staff were extremely friendly and willing to provide any information needed to enjoy our stay in San Salvador.
We were trying to find somewhere to watch the olympic hockey game and Gretchen was on the phone calling all the sports bars and found one that would play the game for us. She even organized with the staff to call her in order to organize a taxi home when the game was done. Absolutely fantastic customer service!

My young son and I travelled to El Salvador in January 2014 from Canada. We stopped in at the Morrison on the way in and on the way out of the country. We asked that they arrange a car to pick us up at the airport and there he was holding our name even tho our flight was delayed at least an hour from Toronto. The drive was an easy one and we got checked in. Most of the staff's English is sketchy, but our "charades" and their patience did the trick for a few days. I can't say enough about the hotel itself: the photo's don't do it justice: it's petite but lovely, understated in decor but very comfortable and so authentic. It felt like a combination of old Europe and the wild west. Breakfast is divine and generous, coffee keeps coming for tired Moms like me and all with smiles. :)
I can't speak a word of Spanish so our hostess assisted me with so much of my travel plans beyond her calling I wasn't sure a thank you was enough, but it was. My son bounced around the place like it was his playground and splashed in the pool. It's actually bigger than it looks and a great place to spend an afternoon to relax.
We also enjoyed the free Wifi, walking distance to everything and feeling safe everywhere we went!!
We went travelling for a few days, hit the GORGEOUS beaches, saw some of the best sunsets I've seen in the world, then headed back to tell our friends goodbye. On our way out, our doors were held open again, our taxi arrived again on time and we said good bye.
I loved the Morrison and I'd recommend anyone to stay here and meet Gretchen and her staff. Thanks to all of you and please remember that you all have a friend in Canada!! Love A + K

this is the perfect spot if you don't have a rental car. Galleria, wendy and a lot of other stores are within walking distance. Public transportation is around the corner. Great Access. Hotel itself is homie. WIFI is free and available in all areas including the rooms (something that was hard to get at other hotels).

We have stayed in this bed and breakfast two weeks and are going back! The staff is very friendly and helpful! It is located in a nice location with lots of shopping and dining options. Gretchen and Camilo are very knowledgeable and helpful. Don't think twice about staying here! A real gem!

We stayed in this very nice hotel for 5 days. Everything worked perfect, the rooms were quite big and the bathroom was nice. The beds was very comfy and we slept like kings. The staff are very nice and quite serviceminded and always available to help you. The location of the hotel is perfect, very near to everything. The value of this hotel is good and it is absolutely a hotel we will use again.
