Tica booked us in here in transit to Guatemala City we only stayed 4 hrs but were grateful for some rest after 16hrs in a bus, the facilities are basic, but for $24 any port in a storm. No A/C only fan, cold shwr, no bfast.

I had the unfortunate experience of spending one night here. The room was dirty and spartan furniture. I didn't feel safe sleeping here so only got 2 hours. They didn't do my wake up call. It's right above the bus station so guess if that's how you are traveling would be convenient

Te hotel has all it is needed to spend a comfortable day/night or even a week, either for business travel or vacation time: good acomodations (Cable TV, shower with hot/cold water, rooms with 1 or 2 beds, A/C), good food service (the meals have a nice home-made taste), WiFi, taxi service in front of the building, phone service for emergencies,

This is at the Tica Bus terminal. Good value for the first night. $32. They say after that the discount, for TICA customers, doesn't apply. Quiet, and I was so tired after 13 hours I didn't even hear the buses that left at 3 and 5 in the morning. Hot water, wifi. Friendly, helpful staff and bus station/terminal is right... More

Stayed here following bus from Guatemala City to San Salvador. The hotel is owned and run by Tica Bus, so is highly convenient if getting off or onto one of their buses. The room was clean enough, no rubbish bin a hassle, fan. Shared bathroom was also fine. Cold water. Staff were friendly enough. Location was good with 24h Denny's... More

I have stayed at Hotel Meson de Maria in San Salvador on several occasions. There are so many reasons to stay there. It is centrally located in an upscale neighborhood, the price is reasonable, rooms are clean, and the staff are very helpful. There is an upper deck to relax after a long day. And as you sits there, your... More

Good place if you travel with TICA bus as it is right on the bus stop. In the center of the night life district, good restaurants close by. I wouldn't stay here if I was just visiting the city as there is nicer places to find for the same price

Great hotel if you're traveling by Tica Bus, especially if your bus leaves at 3 am! This bus is upstairs from the Tica Bus terminal. For $32, I got a private room with a bath for my daughter and I. And it had air conditioning! There are two museums within walking distance along with several American chain restaurants (Wendys, Dennys,... More

So I paid the extra $$$ for aircon and it worked then it didn't, off and on, from 6pm til 11ish. The room was hot as hell.
