Myrna and family as well as Ezequiel were friendly and attentive. The place is clean and comfortable. On my second day at the inn, I left my car keys locked inside. The whole family came to our rescue, and all in the most sincere and beautiful manner. My wife and I loved the place and when returning to San Salvador,...

We booked this as a safe/convenient/affordable option in San Salvador on arrival in the evening. It's ideal for the first few nights in a new county. The hotel arranged an airport pickup which was there and waiting and the rooms are really quiet in terms of outside traffic noise etc. There are a handful of restaurants within a two minute...

This is a great hotel for the price. The owners/staff are willing to give you any information or help you might need, and the 16 year-old translator is delightful. They made sure that our stay was comfortable and ensured that we got to the right bus station for our trip to Honduras. The breakfast and free wi-fi only add to...

This is one of the nicest places I have stayed on my whole trip.
