San Salvador's reliable hotel brands
San Salvador is no stranger to quality hotels featuring names recognised around the world. The city may be home to an array of historic and cultural sites, such as the National Palace and the Monumento al Divino Salvador, but you can also find modern and Westernised accommodation. These well-known establishments offer committed service and comforts.
One of the city's most popular hotels is the Real InterContinental, conveniently located next to Central America's largest shopping mall. Other options include the Hilton Princess, Courtyard by Marriott, Sheraton Presidente and the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
Visit San Salvador on a budget
San Salvador doesn't make you settle for underwhelming accommodation when visiting with a strict budget. The city has a generous amount of mid-range and budget-friendly accommodation to go round including the Apart Hotel Maria Jose, which has a spacious and self-contained suite perfect for visiting families.
The Alicante Hotel is also located in the city with a green outdoor patio and pool area. It's a short distance from the enormous Panamericana Multiplaza shopping mall, where you can find plenty of ways to spend any money saved on accommodation. Alternatively, you can stay at the Hotel Gardenia Inn to enjoy an onsite kitchen, gym and lush garden area.
Historic sightseeing with modern living
While visiting El Salvador's capital city, there's argument to suggest an itinerary based on the historic monuments and attractions within San Salvador. As monuments go, you might want to check out the Plaza Gerardo Barrios and the Monument to the Sea. Afterwards, duck over to one of the city's museums, such as the Museo de Arte MARTE, or catch a theatrical performance at the Teatro Presidente.
Fortunately, accommodation in San Salvador isn't as historic as its sights. The Morrison Hotel de la Escalon has a peaceful outdoor pool area and comfortable beds for resting between activities.
