Owner Florida is a pleasant woman who made our one night stay comfortable. El Salvador has a bad reputation for the crime so staying in a gated community made us feel a little better. Nice room and bathroom. Air conditioned rooms with cable tv and free wifi. Had pancakes and fruit for breakfast and it was standard. I would stay...

Florida made our stay in San Salvador simply wonderful with her eye to every detail possible. She helped with taxis and gave great suggestions for restaurants and attractions in the city. The bed and breakfast is very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Located in a very safe area. Would definitely like to go back!

This was my first trip to El Salvador and I must say that Florida and Jose Alfonso made me very welcome in their home and their country. They are both very attentive to your needs and helped in every way they could with questions about places to go (or not to go). I arrived late the first night and Jose...

Florida & Jose are excellent host's, nothing seems like too much trouble. They give you lots of information and have maps available. The room we stayed in was very nice, and the breakfast was excellent. The location of the B&B is in a residential neighborhood, but it seem that in San Salvador this is the safest area to stay in....
