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,...

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. Then I went to complain because I just couldn't sleep (also - howling baby next door, paper thin walls, etc). The guy from the front desk came and fiddled ineffectually with the aircon...

Great hotel for the price. We were travelling by Tica Bus so it was really convinient to stay there for 1 night. It's in a safe area, close to a museum. You can find some local pupusas if you walk around a bit, and a supermarket is about 15 mins walk. Nice terrace. The service is really nice, the rooms...

Transiting from Guatemala to Costa Rica, I came here because it's right above the Tica Bus terminal (San Benito). Not knowing what to expect, I was treated like royalty even if I was on a very low budget. The manager, Estela de Hernandez, took care of me personally and made sure I was completely satisfied. I have'nt been treated like...

This was a great place to stay while traveling through Central America, Very convenient and has a great restaurant above the hotel. Excellent to have a coffee while watching El Salvador wake up. Totally recommended!

I stayed here with my husband for just one night. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room had two single beds and was a little small but was comfortable for the night. The food in the restaurant was delicious, you could have it as a sit down meal or in take away containers for your room. The shower...

The last hotel in San Salvador that Tica Bus dropped me off at was beyond ghetto. This place on the other hand was a delightful surprise. The WiFi isn't too bad, they have a nice outside deck with food and cervezas bien fria. The place is clean, and comfy, and since you can't really walk around here at night, it...

We came across this hotel because of its connection with the bus company Ticabus. Eventually we booked it because our 3 am bus to Nicaragua was leaving from outside the hotel. We ended up sleeping and eating there. It is very pleasant, very clean and reasonably priced. Even if it wasn't for the early bus departure we might pick it...

The hotel is not Redisson, of course, but if you want a room for one night, during your bus`s trip, this one is just all you need. You`ll find the main entrance of the hotel in a few meters from your Ticabus. Room is small and simple, but clean and with aircon. Bath is clean and no problem with hot...

This hotel is right at the first stop Tica Bus does coming into San Salvador, just above their office. Rooms are small but clean, come with AC, TV, WIFI and private bath, enough for an overnight stay to head on early the next morning. There is a restaurant out front facing the street at regular prices. The staff is welcoming...
