This hotel is located in a very safe area of San Salvador and is less than a 10 minute walk to the CIFCO convention center. Most of the cab drivers did not know where the hotel was, so we just told them it was the one behind Denny's restaurant and they knew how to get there. Denny's is just down the hill. You can also walk to the Sheraton and Hilton in about 5 minutes.
We stayed here in November 2013 for a trade show. The hotel was completely full, but in our 5 days there, we only saw another guest one time. It was a very quiet hotel.
The rooms are very basic, but clean. In our bedroom, we had a single bed and a double bed. In the outer room, there was a couch which opened into a bed, a dining table with 4 chairs, and two additional casual chairs. Kitchen included refrigerator, stove, coffee maker, and toaster oven.
Each night, you make your breakfast selections and they bring it to your room at the scheduled time.
Only two minor complaints were that the air conditioner is mounted at the ceiling and blows onto the single bed and the beds are fairly firm.
I would definitely stay here again. The staff at the hotel are extremely nice. Of special note, Carlos, who works the night shift, was a delight - very helpful, polite, professional, and friendly.
They have soda and bottled water available for purchase, but no beer.
