We loved staying at Nico Urban Hotel and eating at the on-site restaurant Il Buongustaio. As soon as you enter the hotel there's a feeling of relaxation and comfort. The hotel offers modern amenities but keeping its vintage flare. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating, making sure our every need was met during our stay. The rooms were beautifully decorated and had everything we could ask for. We especially loved the little private garden. The food at Il Buongustaio was absolutely delicious - we couldn't get enough of their authentic Italian dishes. The best part is that the hotel is so central to everything meaning you can walk or take an uber to wherever you are going, we loved staying in San Benito it's the safest and best neighborhood in El Salvador. Overall, our experience at Nico Urban was top-notch and we can't wait to come back again!

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.

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!!!

My check in was OK, the receptionist was a lady not welcoming, no smile didn’t even ask how we are doing. Me & my
Friend booked this place over the phone randomly calling hotels for availability and Fernando picked up our call and with his hospitality and knowledge we booked our 3 night stay right away. I felt a warm welcome
Through the phone.
So when I checked in I wish it was by him but turned out it was the manager. As a director for a Hilton property here I am always on the look out to see who brings the real hospitality and Fernando did, we later met him in the evening for his shift and I knew right away It was him. He was so kind, ATTENTIVE, welcoming.
I wish I could bring him back to the states. Everyone please request Fernando to take care of you,
Your needs and concerns he’s the best.

Brand new boutique hotel situated in one of the most prestigious areas in San Salvador. Nico is modern in style with suite-type rooms; everyone the its 6 suites are well above the average room size. Next door is Il Bongustaio restaurant which is the best restaurant in the country.

This is one of those places that you hate to praise publicly because you always want there to be space for you. But this little hotel, and the adjoining bar and restaurant, are so pleasing that the owners deserve public commendation. This is a magnificent old house, exquisitely renovated and understatedly decorated. There are only five rooms and so it feels very tranquil and private. The staff is there when you need them but so unobtrusive that you feel a real sense of space. My room was huge and confortable and esthetically pleasing in a minimalist way. The large, stone--walled shower was amazing. There are green apples on platters in the hallway, and 24/7 espresso. They put out a great, healthy spread for al fresco breakfast in their courtyard, lots of fresh fruit and yogurt and bread and cheese and will make you an omelette or whatever if you choose. The gin bar is relaxing, with good music, and the Italian restaurant is first rate, a real surprise. The only thing I would caution is that the bar and restaurant are closed on Sunday night, so if you are arriving then, think ahead ...

It is the best restaurant in El Salvador. The quality of food and service is world class. They also have the best Gin and Tonic bar in El Salvador. You will be happy with anything you ask from the menu, but I highly recommend the steak with porcini mushrooms and the Shrimp and Lobster pasta.

Situated quite closely to the center of the town and surrounded by a beautiful garden, Casa ILB offers you a perfect place for retreat and tranquility in a crowded and sometimes hectic town. What you can expect here is not the kind of fully standardized, dull and bland service of the hotel chains of this world but rather personalized hospitality, offered by the owner and all of the crew members who are all extremely dedicated and kind. Dishes are equisite and tasty, not leaving any wish unfulfilled and this at most reasonable prices. The (few) rooms make any stay a great experience with the generous space they offer, a decor which is not overdone and their absolute cleanliness. When ever back to San Salvador, I won't miss the chance to stay anew at this most charming guest house.

Casa ILB is a clean, modern, and beautiful boutique hotel. The lobby, the rooms, and the outdoor patio are elegantly decorated. To go with its style, the staff provides exceptional service. Samaria was very helpful with tips on where to go/eat, arranging transport, and even gave us takeaway breakfast for our early morning flight out. The staff went out of their way to meet all our needs and for us to feel as comfortable as possible. Their restaurant and bar were both excellent in quality and service. The complimentary continental breakfast was delicious. Would highly recommend this hotel!!

Stayed in this hotel two nights and I'm 100% convinced that no hotel in San Salvador can match the level of service, excellent food, beautiful rooms and quiet atmosphere of this Casa ilB. I'm coming back next time I'm going to San Salvador.
