5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

This is a place to stay when you want genuine caring people around you. I don't think I have ever stayed in a hotel where you feel so much warmth. I have been here for 10 days on a work assignment, and initially resisted it, and was thinking of moving to one of the big international chain hotels, like the Intercontinental. But boy, am I glad I stayed. It is a small hotel with solid but slower than US standards WIFI, no gym, and no pool, but the place is spotless, and the people serving you make you feel very special. You get to know them, and they make sure you are doing well. Breakfast is always good, and the hotel is close to shopping. Everybody pampers you in every way.

I stayed at Villa Serena on my first of six trips so far to El Salvador (each time after that, I stayed with my wife or with friends or in another city) and it was more than wonderful. The service was perfect. The cleanliness was perfect. The homemade breakfast in the beautiful courtyard patio was perfect. It was quiet, yet I was two minutes from many great places in the city. The owners are wonderful and professional. When I was there, they didn't have wifi but they did have two computers for guests to get online. The neighborhood is safe, but remember that it is still El Salvador, so still be careful. The price was so reasonable for the quality I received. (I was there in Sept. 2007 but that's not a choice on "when did you travel".)

I have stayed here three times now, and each time haas been a delight. The hotel is clean and quiet, with comfortable rooms. The staff is welcoming adn friendly. It is agood value for the price, adn it is walking distance from a large mall and several restaurants. I stay there whenever I visit San Salvador.

I had a night here and it more than met my expectations. San Salvador tends to be a little expensive, but this place had large rooms with cable TV, good wifi and aircon in a neighbourhood that seemed safe for a reasonable price. If you're interested in using the gym, I would caution that it does have very limited opening hours. Overall, though, was very satisfied and would definitely stay there again.

My wife and I have stayed here a few times. The rooms are clean and nice and open up to a well-cared-for central garden. WiFi is included along with a full breakfast that has healthy options. A large shopping mall is nearby that has a very good movie theater.

I spent a week here in November/December and enjoyed my stay. This hotel is well managed and the staff are very good. The rooms are more than adequate and are kept very clean. The neighborhood feels pretty safe for San Salvador and walking around even at night felt OK. The night eating options are pretty much limited to US and El Salvador fast food chains, especially at night. My one gripe is with the breakfast. This is not a cheap hotel but the breakfast was on the cheap side. There was a limited selection, not very El Salvadoranian, and no fresh fruit or fresh juice.

Villa Serena is located in the upscale Escalon area of San Salvador. The hotel rooms are comfortable and the staff goes out of their way to accomodate. The included morning breakfast is tasty and you have a lot of choices. We stay here whenever we visit the city.

Room Tip: We never had a bad room, no noise, etc
