Most importantly, excellent staff throughout the hotel, bar and restaurant. Rooms were large, airy and tastefully decorated. Very comfy beds. Pretty garden overlooked by the restaurant. Good location for bars, restaurants, museums. We felt comfortable walking, even at night.

It was our first time to San Salvador and the location was perfect to most everything we wanted to see. We walked around to explore different restaurants and museums and felt totally safe. The grounds of the hotel and rooms are beautiful. The little details of this place do not go unnoticed. We spent 3 nights here.

Our overall experience was EXCELLENT. The rooms are very spacious, beautifully decorated yet still cozy. It feels like you are staying in a grand home, not a sterile hotel. The breakfast was delicious - I looked forward to it every day and the bar staff made great drinks and the setting was lovely and intimate. The overall level of service was EXCELLENT. I cannot recommend this hotel enough,

Boutique Luxury Hotel in posh area of the city! Not many rooms, all with different designs. Chef is AMAZING and food is top notch! Airport transpo service is very good and they make a difficult city to manage easy. Would keep quiet about this place as its getting harder and harder to book this hidden gem in San Salvador! Hummm I am dropping the ball with this review???? LOL! ONE warning! Bathrooms and Showers are not for the shy as they are in FULL view of other occupants!!!

We stayed in room 4 for three nights while we were traveling around El Salvador. The neighborhood seemed safe - although we only went out during the day. I really liked the open and spacious room layout. It's modern done the right way. I even liked the paintings (I'm fairly picky about art). Beds are comfortable - and I liked the robes, pillows and slippers. The hotel room was quiet, even though there is a restaurant in the other part. The restaurant was pretty awesome. We ate there two nights. The breakfast was really good as well - I had avocado toast and my son had corn pancakes. The staff was really nice and arranged car transit for me (as well as a tour around the city). The restaurant is closed Sunday night - so prepare accordingly. The only small complaint I have is of a smoke smell in the bed (even though its listed as a smoke free hotel). I think someone smoked heavily in there, and the smell was deep in all the mattress/pillows (in both of them). However, I want to go back and highly recommend.
