“A peaceful retreat at the end of busy days”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

We loved everything about your hotel. It was very clean, our bedroom was huge, the bathroom was wonderful. I just did not bring enough clothes to do justice to the huge walk in closet !! Breakfast was perfect and everyone was so friendly. The night we had dinner in the restaurant the food was excellent. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend this hotel. I would only get a large resentment if it gets so popular it would be difficult to get a reservation !!! Many thanks.

It is like being a house guest of a wealthy Family with impeccable taste . The rooms are huge superbly finished with the Italian modern style . The bar is run by Estela who is Latin Americian Coctail champ , ask her to create you something unique , the adjoining restaurant is deserving of a Michelin star . San Salvador is safe excellent value ( 1/3 Costa Rica) and full of wonderful people ready for a bright future . Casa IlB is one of the true pleasures of travel .

I stayed in this hotel for two nights during a recent February trip to beautiful El Salvador. The hotel was incredible- gorgeous setting, spacious rooms and bathrooms with all amenities and extremely clean. Loved the breakfast in the morning in the outdoor space. And enjoyed a delightful and delicious dinner in the restaurant. Would definitely return and look forward to doing so! The staff was so very welcoming and helpful!

Room Tip: All the rooms (I saw three of the five) were beautifully designed, unique and spacious. You can'...

This boutique truly is a gem. Large, clean and well appointed rooms. Breakfast set up just for guests. Stunning landscape. Friendly staff. On site restaurant one of the best in the city! Although I'd like to keep this place my little secret I have to recommend it.

Casa ILB is a boutique hotel conveniently situated in San Salvador. The service is friendly and attentive and the rooms large and pleasant. The restaurant (lunch and dinner) is outstanding. Breakfast is served in the garden. Appeals to a discerning clientele.

I can only say our stay was far more than I expected! The hotel is a wonderful respit in San Salvador,
beautiful, restful, welcoming! Samaria, the manager, treated us warmly as family with her kindness and recommendations, even taking us to dinner at a wonderful local pupusaria! I would recommend Il B
to anyone visiting in San Salvador. One of the guests we met was a local staying there celebrating his birthday!
