“Small hospitable hotel”
Reviewed 1 March 2009

I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for eight days. The location is ideal and the Hotel employees were quite helpful. The rooms are well attended by housekeeping. The condition of the rooms themselves very and some require some touch up work. Free breakfasts are included in the price of stay, basic El Salvadorian morning dishes are prepared by caring staff. Security staff was extremely helpful and courteous while not being menacing even though they are armed. The hotel is situated in a safe neighborhood and is right across the street from a local El Salvadorian nightspot which has a pretty decent view of the city. There are restaurants ranging from traditional El Salvadorian cuisine to Thai food, Chinese food, sushi and major chains like Subway, Burger King if that's your thing. The hotel also has a small pool and children's waddling area which is in the back of the hotel nice for a quick dip on very hot days. All in all no complaints from me. It is a family owned hotel. Owned by a Taiwanese couple as I understand it.

Stayed February 2009, travelled with friends

Reviewed 13 September 2008

A regular-quality midrange hotel in a convenient location in Colonia Escalón. A good choice for this range of accomodation.

I spent at this hotel two nights in July 2008. The hotel is housed in a nice property in a quiet spot half a block off Paseo Escalón, the main avenue of Colonia Escalón, with easy access to eateries and ground transportation.

My room was basic but clean and comfortable (photos attached tell the story), with cable TV and a decent shower. The only issue I had was with air conditioning, an old-generation equipment that as a matter of fact was quite noisy. A non-memorable breakfast was included in the rate. Complimentary access to internet through a shared desktop in the breakfast lounge. There is a small pool as well that I did not check out.

As well as other hotels in the San Salvador, the Hotel has security. An armed guard guards entrance to the building and checks out guests and visitors.

My understanding is that this Hotel caters essentially to business people but my experience as a tourist was fairly good as well. It is a midrange type of hotel in a convenient location in town and so long as you do not expect frills or luxury it is a fairly good choice.
