“Exactly what you expect from a Hilton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Lovely hotel located centrally and in a safe area of San Salvador. THe rooms are comfortable and clean, and the beds firm with great linens. The staff is very helpful and warm. The buffet was delicious although a bit pricey. Overall, really excellent hotel!

I chose the Hilton Princess San Salvador for my first visit to El Salvador and could not be happier with my decision.
My room was clean, the gym is good, the views are incredible and they staff was extremely helpful throughout my stay.
The concierge arranged a wonderful day trip touring several historic Mayan and natural volcanic sights within hours of the city.
I will definitely choose this hotel again!

I only got to stay here one night, but both the hotel and restaurant were very nice and very comfortable. Worth a try if you find yourself in San Salvador. I stayed on the executive floor so, both my breakfast and Internet were included in the room charge.

While this is a relatively new hotel and it has all of the mod cons it does not have much character. The pool area is small and there is no garden which is a shame in the beautiful climate that they have in San Salvador. Good friendly and efficient service but no charm.

Definitely it is one five stars hotel in El Salvador. The hotel structure is awesome and the spa is very good. The service is kind of different... The reception booking employees deserve one ZERO in service. They really don't know how to deal with people and with troubles. I have one trouble that they didn't charged my credit card when I've done my booking (advanced purchase of 1 month, no refundable) and they didn't contact me. But I don't mind because the service of the rest of the hotel was perfect. The Concierge and Door Bell men that helped me in this stay deserve the maximum classification. They really know how to deal with one guest. They helped me planning my tours, giving me water and advices. The restaurant and room service were great!! Best meals that I had in central america. I would recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for two nights on a business trip. The staff were charmine and helpful, all of them. Rooms large and comfortable. It was really nice to stay in a chail hotel that did not look or feel like one.
Downside pool small and transfers from / to airport expensive, get a taxi!
Highly recommended would love to go back. Concierge arranged trip up to see volcano with car and guide, very enjoyable and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: Executive room with use of lounge is worth the extra.

You are are checked into this hotel with smiles and a warm welcome. Check-in was efficient. The room was very spacious with an excellent bathroom and extremely comfortable bed. The room was very clean and there was free WiFi. The restaurant food was very good and not excessively expensive. The lobby bar is useful for working over a beer. The hotel exercise room is excellent. I was very pleased with this hotel and it was one of the friendliest I have ever been too.
