“Great business hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

This is my 6th time at the Clarion. The suites are big with a very comfortable bed. I stayed for 6 nights, the staff are very friendly and helpful.. I do not even have to look for another hotel when i have to go to San Salvador. The breakfast is very good, the views are amazing, overlooking the beautiful volcano of San Salvador. It is very good hotel for the money.

Stayed for 6 nights on business booked by my hosts. Location is safe with many restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. The rooms are spacious and well equipped with fridge, iron & board, hairdryer & filter coffee machine. The bed was very comfortable and the linen immaculately clean and pressed. Breakfast is served on the roof top terrace or inside and there was plenty of choice with fresh fruit and proper orange juice. No complaints whatsoever & will definitely use it again. There is the most amazing restaurant attached on the ground floor called La Gastroteka - very small and intimate- the head chef came to translate the menu for us and is a total pro...classically trained and brilliant. The food was sublime and the service second to none. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

A friend, who previously lived in El Salvador, recommended the Clarion to me and a friend. The hotel staff was friendly and the rooms were pretty good; the balconies were spacious. We arrived on a Saturday, told them we would be back on Monday and wanted the same rooms, then spent 1 day at a beach hotel When we came back on Monday, my friend got the same room and I had to change rooms which was no problem. However, when we checked out, the rates went up 50% and, because we didn't speak Spanish well enough, we were not clear on their explanation.

All and all this is a nice hotel and staff is very friendly. The area has a few restaurants in walking distance however be aware it is a bit sketchy at night and really nothing note worthy in walking distance. If you have the option rooms in the main tower are newer and nicer. I was in the old tower and the room was very large but dated and a bit musty. The breakfast is great, work out room adequate. The pool is awkwardly located and very small. The staff was always helpful and very friendly I'll be returning in Feb and will hope for a suite in the main tower.

Room Tip: Main tower

Stayed one night here splurging a little as we were between two long distance buses from Guatemala to Nicaragua and we wanted to maximize our evening in San Salvador. We really appreciated the location as we felt pretty safe at night walking to and from the many restaurants in the area and didn’t need to take a taxi.

Location: Right in Zona Rosa, just half a block from a number of restaurants and along a strip of designer stores mixed with American fast food chains.

Rooms: We were given a large suite with a very comfortable King bed, a large flatscreen tv in both the bedroom and living room, a small kitchen, and a small balcony looking out over the city. The AC worked perfectly once we found the control and the tv had lots of channels.

Rooftop pool was small but nice, having great views of the city.

Breakfast was decent, nothing all that memorable but a typical buffet with some local dishes like papusas.

At $94 we felt it was good value. Given we only had the evening there and wanted to be able to walk around a bit, it was perfect for our purposes.

I have to go to San Salvador twice a year for business, I have stayed the last 5 times in this hotel, I am very please with the location, the suites are big, well equiped, clean, every floor has a laundry room which is very convenient. On the 7th floor they have a restaurant where you can have a buffet breakfast, looking the beautiful volcano of San Salvador, very unique and beautiful scenery,
The hotel is in the middle of Zona Rosa which in one time was where everything was happening in San Salvador, You can find good restaurants in the area. Le Citron, if you would like to go upscale. or next door if you like steak.
The area is pretty safe.
A perfect home away from home when you are traveling for business.

I usually avoid chain hotels but for the Clarion Hotel (aka Las Palmas) in San Salvador I make an exception. I have stayed here several times over the last few years before embarking to the beach or coffee mountain areas. One huge plus, contrary to most chain hotels, are the daily presence of the owners, who oversee every aspect of the hotel. This translates into exceptional service from all their dedicated staff. The rooms are unusually large for the price and many offer very private large verandas overlooking the city and surrounding mountains. My stay also included a great breakfast from their sunny penthouse dining area with a view of a shimmering clean, albeit tiny, pool.

Though San Salvador has a dangerous reputation, it is simply not the case in this area of the city known as Zona Rosa and I always feel very safe when walking about.

There are many nice contemporary restaurants and night life within easy walking distance of the hotel and the main city mall (Via Gran) is a short ten minute taxi drive.

The price of the hotel is very reasonable when compared to other nearby competitors.
