Hotel Villa Florencia Centro
Ranked #17 of 54 San Salvador B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 January 2014

A very nice interior set up but staff speak only Spanish and this might be a big problem. It is located centrally and near the historic centre. Easy to walk to the main attractions of san salvador.
we stayed three days.

Room Tip: ask in Spanish whether breakfast is included to the price

Rooms were good for the price. Grounds felt very safe. Like mentioned by others, it is 45 mins from the airport.

We only had 14hrs in San Salvador, so when we arrived we found a bar on the corner about a block away where we had a few beers before calling it a night. The next morning we hired the cab driver who picked us up from the airport to take us to the main Cathedral/square downtown and then to hike around one of the volcanoes. It was a great morning and we had plenty of time to make our flight at 3pm.

We would stay here again if driving into the center of San Salvador.

It was a 45 minute ($25.00) cab ride from the airport, this hotel
Is very small & hard to find. The hotel lobby is decorated in a nice southwestern decor. Front desk clerk very friendly & called cabs for me whenever I needed. The rooms themselves are very small & bare but does have wall mounted A/C & a small
TV. You get a couple of towels & a small bar of soap. There was no hot water for the shower but water wasn't too cold. There are larger rooms available for a higher price but for $32.25 night can't complain. There is not much to do around this neighborhood so I recommend another hotel if you want to be within walking distance of city central. If you are a solo traveler or couple who prefer value over frills then I recommend this hotel.

It does what it says as advertised, for the price and a private room it was a good deal. Showers were cold but because of the hot weather we did not mind. Several english channels on TV

The staff are very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast can be found for £1 at various cafes a couple of blocks away. Definitely a great budget option in San Salvador. if you want to be in Zona Rosa or staying longer than a few days then you need to be closer to the entertainment. Zona Rosa about 15 - 20 minutes away by Car.

Will stay again there.

Room Tip: The bottom floor rooms are fairly private and a nice dining table in the centre for you to use or wh...

The hotel is very convenient to the bus station and center of town. The room was small, basic and clean. No hot water, but a shower was bearable. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast can be found for $1.25 at various cafes a couple of blocks away. Definitely a great budget option in San Salvador.

The staff at this hotel were INCREDIBLE! They were very helpful with everything we needed and were very friendly and honest.
The rooms were spacious and clean and the beds were comfy. There is no hot water, which wasn't really a problem as it was warm. We had a room witih a fan, which was sufficient as it was a super powered one!
The lobby are is nicely decorated.
This hotel is located in the Centre of town - great for the bus station but there isn't much around in the way of restaurants or attractions. I think if you're staying for a while the Zona Rosa area is the place to be.

This hotel is very convenient to the bus station. Only a 2min walk away.

The rooms are clean and our A/C worked very well. TVs with some English stations too.

There are a few food places available if you turn left out of the hotel and then left again. They are comedor places or street food and some with tables a seats inside. We had a full meal at one for $2.35.

The hotel has a really nice lobby and open area with a good size dining table.

We stayed here 2 nights and spent a bit of time in the open area organising the next part if our trip. The Internet is very good.

The negative is there is no breakfast and no hot water so you have to have a cold shower. Free coffee though. Our bathroom has a bath but its not much use without hot water.

This is perfect if staying a short time and arriving on bus and moving on by bus or to the airport. $5 colectivos to airport 2 blocks away. Good value rooms too.

There was an English speaking staff member on reception who was very helpful.
