Travelling to El Salvador, I spent some days in the capital.
From the international airport to downtown El Salvador, it takes about 30 minutes; a taxi costs aprox. USD 25.
The climate in October is hot and mostly very humid
For the hotel Capital you find information on their website or even on the Expe..a website:
Shiny beautyful pictures - a good looking hotel. At least on the website.
I booked this hotel, because of it´s convinient location (close to reach the places where I had to go for business); and because I am not willing to pay the exaggerated tariffs of the international hotels in El Salvador.
I made my booking through the mentioned website; tariffs around USD
55/night; breakfast and free WIFI included; single room.
Walking from reception to my room, my mood was coming down - and when I arrived in my room and looked at the details, it reached an absolute minimum. See pictures.
The size´of the room was OK; the minibar possibly was meant to be for ascetic people, because it was empty.
The floor; with cigarret marks on it. Burned.
The wallpaper in the bathroom was coming off at several places.
The shower was a kind of weak; not a lot of pressure.
It urgently needs some maintenance.
Positive aspects: it was relatively clean!
Internet access was stable and good; and the room relativly quiet.
Breakfast: buffet - but very limitid variety
With real windows to open. Plus the air-condition and the television were functional as well.
It´s a 1 minute walk to a super-slectos supermarket where you find food, drinks.
Only 5 minutes by taxi to the "Gran via" area with a large variety of international stores, boutiques, and restaurants...
Trying to do some sports and taking the adventerous walk from the 7th to the 8th floor where the "pool" and the "gym" are located:
A dangerous stair; holes in the wall, dark - it looked like in a horror movie...
The gym: A dirty, ugly storage area of old 100% NON-functional equipment!
The pool: See pictures and judge for yourself.
If you don´t plan to do any sports and are happy with a small breakfast-buffet,
spending very little money - it´s an alternative.
