Recent guest reviews

The Quality Service is always the BEST, i was satisfied with professional appearance of the staff.

I travel quite a bit and have stayed at all sorts of hotels, and I must say, this is one of the top one. Breakfast was excellent; a variety of choices and the best that there was a lot of typical choices. The staff was very professional from the minute we drove in. The room was clean and had all I needed. The decor, one of my favorite. Great experience and if I come back, I will stay here.

Your staff is so professional, helpful and caring. i was satisfied. The Hotel Room was clean.

The staff is so friendly, wonderful beds, spacious rooms

Helpful , caring attitude of hotel staff , quality service

Only bad experience was the check in. The person at the from desk was not nice enough, I had to show my reservation papers to prove to him that the breakfast was included, and even after that he was not convinced, at one point I was getting upset that told him that as I got back to states I wil complaint about. Person on telephone did allow to let a friend of mine to let a message on for my, told him that probably I was not available that I was not answering the phone, call back. I stayed in hotel a few years ago, and it was a better experience at that time. Thanks.

Friendly staff, clean beds, the room was a very nice.

Very nice hotel in the nice area of San salvador. Staff nice. Very welcoming

It is a nice hotel to stay but the facilities are quite old, the staff is not friendly or give a really good customer service, the rooms are really comfortable, big and clean but there this pipe noise at night, terrible.

We spent 2 nights while visiting friends. The room was very spacious and clean, the staff were all very helpful. Check in / check out were quick and efficient. I would definitely recommend this hotel

Enjoyed our stay at the Barceló. The room and facilities are nice, especially the gym.

I went we my 93 years old grandma and she felt confortable, except in breakfast time when they felt they were watching her while she was eating, and they start to clean near her. And in the description they said ESA dogs are available so I have to change one of my days because it was not able.

Nice overall, but needs room updates and a bit of remodeling. Fraying wallpaper, chipped paint. But overall clean and well run.

Staff is always very welcoming and friendly. All they are definitely stars.

Everything was okay, good location, staff was kind

Do not use the room telephone! I paid an exorbitant amount of money for local calls.. Playroom floor extremely slippery and no AC, hot food at executive level was greasy and not good variety.. the attendant was good. When I first arrived to the room discovered that the toilet was clogged, I found this after using it!! room 909. Bathroom floor cracked. Bathtub chipped. Bathrobes had been dried too long and not soft.. Unwearable to my standards I had to change my access card 3 times, it kept being disabled.. Same thing with my room Wi-Fi connection.. This was at the executive level. Annoying Room service was really good, and the condition of the room was very good, except the bathroom. The hotel personnel were very attentive.. The lobby and building condition were very good. Location is excellent.

I stayed here for New Years Eve. Much of the staff is bi-lingual (English/Spanish) and the rooms are quite comfortable. Amenities are good (pool, wifi, bar / restaurants on site) and you are in the heart of Zona Rosa. The more local spots are in Santa Tecla like Paseo El Carmen but these places are very close by via taxi and they don't have any hotels this nice. And while there are some good restaurants and clubs in Zona Rosa, we spent more time at Gran Villa and the Multiplaza. It was only a short cab ride ($4 or $5) but if you are planning to go back and forth a lot it might not be a bad idea to have a car since there is free parking at the hotel and cabs from the airport are about $25 to $30 anyway. A car is also convenient for visiting other sites as most things in San Salvador and El Salvador in general are not walkable.
