The apartment is very spacious. We have a tv in the bedroom with lots of channels. The bathroom was also very clean. The area is safe and can walk to many shops. Breakfasts were served in the apartment and they were yummy.

Overall, value is good and good quality.

This was the second time I've stayed in this hotel. The first time was in September and both stays were a week long.

The staff is great. Room are spotless. Water is hot. Breakfast is excellent and always on time. The area is safe and convenient. I thoroughly enjoyed both stays.

All of the rooms are full apartments. There is a kitchen, living room and bedroom with ajoining bath. The rooms are sparsely furnished but totally functional.

The hotel doesn't have a restaurant, but each room has a booklet of menus from area restaurants that deliver. The front desk is happy to call for you if your Spanish isn't great. There are also more than a dozen restaurants within easy walking distance - sushi, burgers, tipicos and a lot more.

Taxis are available just down the street or the front desk can arrange one to pick up.

This a great place to fly under the radar. The big hotels are fine and both the Sheraton and Hilton are nearby, but I really preferred the service and rooms in this place - and I had no worry of anyone following me when I left - a consideration at certain times in San Salvador.

Highly recommended!

We stayed a week at this apartment hotel. The best location for the money in San Salvador. This is located in Zona Rosa with many, many restaurants within walking distance, deluxe as well as fast food. A very secure area of San Salvador. A supermarket is located within 10 minutes' walk so you can do your own cooking if you want as there is a full kitchen.
PJ, Esperanza and Carlos were all super helpful. Esperanza found a great tour operator for us and arranged all the sightseeing tours for us with El Salvador Travel Plan, formerly know as Murray Travel Plan. They are also highly recommended and their prices were half of other tour operators.

PJ speaks and writes excellent English and answer your emails immediately.

They have the cutest little pool and we had our breakfast there every morning. You can choose between six different a la carte menus.

Wi Fi is good everywhere on the property.

The National Museum of Anthropology is within walking distance and well worth a visit. The elegant Bistro restaurant annexed to the museum offers excellent value lunch specials.

This apart-hotel is very centrally located, it is close to commercial areas with plenty of food options. The area is safe. The apartments have one big room with a bathroom, TV with cable. The living room, dinning area and Kitchenette are well furnished. Breakfast can be requested to the room, they provide a menu with great local dishes. Laundry can be provided. Staff are friendly and helpful, PJ can manage to resolve any request. Just ask. I recommend this hotel for short or long stays, location, price and quality are top.

The environment is nice with very good security. Staff is friendly. I specially like their breakfast. They offer 11 types of breakfast on the menu which I can chose everynight. The following day the breakfast is served as room service on time. I enjoy the stay.

I stayed for a week for work. The suite is clean and the staff are kind and attentive (although most of them do not speak English). They have several choices for the breakfast (no rice or meat though) which they bring to your doorstep everyday.

The location is excellent - I was told the area is safe because it's hear the major hotels like Sheraton and Barcelo.

We stayed in this hotel on business for one week from late June to early July. We had a nice experience due to its friendly staff, clean and spacious room, as well as safe and quiet environment. This hotel is an excellent place to stay if you have only limited budget but still want to enjoy your leisure time in San Salvador!

I had the pleasure to stay here for three months. I was working at sites across El Salvador, and Apart-Hotel Maria Jose became my base of operations and oasis from the chaos of San Salvador. This hotel is a superb value. It is ideal for business travelers and those attending family events in the area.

Location- Colonia San Benito is quiet, safe neighborhood with plenty of shopping, bars, and restaurants nearby. I was quite comfortable to walk around alone at night. The streets are wide and clean with beautiful landscaping. This area is one of the best in the entire country.

Rooms- The rooms are functional but not luxurious. However, one has all the basics to live comfortably. There is AC and cable TV in the bedrooms. The WiFi was reliable and reasonably fast with good coverage throughout the building.

Facility- The building is very secure and has three stories, an elevator, a small but lovely pool, secure access, covered secure parking, and 24 monitoring.

Dining- There is no restaurant, but a free breakfast is included. One may choose from among several option and specify delivery time. Breakfast is served in the room or poolside. The breakfast was always good, always on time, and always correct per the order. The staff even would notice if a guest routinely did not eat any item on the plate and thoughtfully substitute it for something else.

Service- A staff member is on duty 24/7. Access to the building and parking area is controlled by the on-duty staff member. The rooms are cleaned daily, and the cleaning quality is superb. Cleaning even includes bussing the breakfast and washing any pots, pans, and dishes left in the sinks. Filtered water is delivered daily. If you have any concerns or maintenance issues, it will be quickly resolved. The front desk can help arrange taxis, tours, or any special requests you may have. For example, I enquired about travel options to La Ceiba. They provided me with a chart listing various air and land options with schedules, prices, contacts, and suggestions. Now that is truly exceptional service above and beyond any reasonable expectation!

Staff- The staff is the best part of this hotel. You will always be greeted and given a warm smile. Every single staff member was so friendly and kind: front desk, maintenance, and housekeeping. I felt almost like a member of the family. Often I just spent several minutes just chatting with staff. PJ, the manager, is especially amiable. He is sincerely concerned about the comfort of his guests, and it shows in how well everything operates. PJ is also fluent in English.

Enjoy your stay here. I definitely did. If I have another project in El Salvador, I would not even consider staying elsewhere. Best of all, the price is very low!

Hello Miss Alejandra. We work with a of taxi driver (very honest and reliable) that could pick you up. He charges between $28-$32 depending on the time. It is the same amount no matter the number of people that will use the service. If you have any other question let me know ;)
