If you don't expect North American chain hotel standards this hotel is great. The rooms are a bit dated, they are musty until you get the air conditioning going and the room cooled. The rooms are clean, but not immaculate.

The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant is very good and the pool is excellent. We spent each morning in the garden for breakfast - it was an excellent start to the day.

The hotel is in a quiet residential neighborhood, away from the tourist areas and I see this as it's strongest benefit. If you want a nice Salvadoran experience in a real neighborhood without becoming a target for the riff raff around the big hotels, this is the place.

I would stay here again without reservation, although I would leave my big hotel expectations at the door.

My room was next to the hotel kitchen i guess, so it had a greasy smell to it. My friend stayed in a room near the garden, it also smelt really bad, due to that the plumbing from the shower is interconnected with the one from the toillet. The hotel is old and the restrooms really small. My overall experience was really bad, never going back, it was muy second time, but not vouching for it anymore.

All international 5 stars hotels being fully booked during my last stay in San Salvador, I choose this one. And it happened to be very good!
The room confort is not luxurious but more than acceptable. The hotel is very clean and is very well located, in one of the safest area of San Salvador city.
The restaurant is also quite good and the whole staff very serviceable.

But clearly the greatest asset of this hotel is its nice garden. It makes it a very confortable place for long stays.

A minor minus point: they tend to fill standard rooms with 2 or 3 beddings (they also accomodate families). Ask for their removal or you'll be crowded.

Of interest for business trips:
- the hotel has two meeting rooms that they lend guests for the price of the coffee). One can accomodate 10 people, the biggest one much more than that.
- Free WIFI connectivity works ok(for El Salvador) and is reachable everywhere in the hotel.

Room Tip: Have a go for the junior suite.

This is a greta hotel in a very peaceful part of San Salvador. The rooms are basic but have all that's needed. The service is greta, the internet works well, and the food is excellent. The breakfasts are a little basic, but the a la carte menu saves the day. All in all, it was a pleasant stay.

My family and I (7 people, adults, young adults, and a chld) spent 2 weeks at this hotel, the price was great, the service was super. Everybody was friendly, serviceable, the food was delicious. They took us on a tour to see El Boqueron (the crate) was fabulous. We are planning to go again to El Salvador and will go to the same hotel. We are telling all our friends to stay in that hotel.

I enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Mediterraneo and plan on staying there again in the future as the service was excellent. It is located in a central area making access to the beaches, airport and other parts of San Salvador easy.
