Recent guest reviews

The hotel is very clean. The breakfast is ok and the street is quiet. It's a great place for a night or two stay. The staff is very good, and the pool is nice. This is a great hidden gem and the price is very good for this hotel. Those that say it's too high don't know how to get a good rate. I got it even cheaper than what the price is on priceline.

Room was big, there was a small kitchen and a balcony. Air condition and wifi worked well. A small outdoor pool. There was a good breakfest with typical salvadorian food. Delicious fruits. A lady made omelettes. Restaurant was open all day so you could have there lunch and dinner.

Plus: big rooms, airco, great breakfast, swimming pool, restaurant service, fridge, possibility to cook (kitchenette) Min: wifi works for mail but not very strong to use for social media. Some rooms are very dark because of the plants/trees in front of them (although it is beautiful)

Everything was very well, starting off from the receptionist to the restaurant and the room. The whole hotel was very good for what I needed. This is my 5th time staying here not only for the cheap price but how quiet it is even though it's in the middle of the city.

Great place for the money! Breakfast is included! Rooms aren't modern and the location is a bit sketchy but once you are inside, you will feel at home. Pool is small but never crowded. Dinner and lunch in the on-site restaurant is great. we stay here every year for semana santa! Great service, great people, great for anyone on a budget.

Although the staff, with one exception, were excellent, we felt that the place itself was very overpriced. The room was ok, but at this price one does not expect the shower/toilet in-one-room combination, with not so much as a shower curtain to divide the bathroom. There was no in-room tea/coffee making facility either. Again, for the price, a minimum requirement. The wi-fi was also virtually non-existent, a very poor signal throughout the hotel grounds. Now to that ´one exception´. Returning at night, there was no security leading to the parking area. We had to unwind a thin piece of wire that was closing the fragile gate - no padlock, no sign of security. After parking we then had to wait for a surly nightman to open the hotel lobby entrance. He neither greeted us, nor asked for identification, but simply scowled and stepped aside as though we were most unwelcome guests. As stated, all of the other staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Security does need to be tightened, and a few more room facilities added. This could be a very nice little spot to stay in. We sincerely hope for a few improvements, in which case we will happily return for another stay.

We stayed 4 nights at Novo Apart Hotel. Breakfast was exelent and the the restaurant made us a really good dinner with coconut shrimps. The room was actually a small apartment, no wonder:-). A litlle balcony facing the swimmingpool set in a lovely litlle garden in front of the restarant. The kitchen in the apartment was suposed to have a microwave oven and cutlery. But no, only a few spoons and a knife. Internet was good until the voucher ran out in the midlle of our stay. It was replaced at once when I asked for it. The room was OK tidy and had a safe. The hotel is placed in a relative safe and nice area of San Salvador with a 6$US taxe ride to the Cathedral in city center. There is always taxis waiting in front of the hotel. A driver with the nickname TaTu took us to the volcane park just outside San Salvador, (Boca...) where you can look down the crater and see another crater mouth inside it. We paid him 40$US for taking us to the place, waiting for us and then take us back to the hotel. An OK prize for the 3 hour service. He also drove us to the airport at 06:00 on a sunday morning. 25 $US. We did take buses in daytime. The were filled with people and, but felt safe enough. You will see lots and lots of men with weapons everywhere outside shops and banks. But I would like to say that San Salvador did not feel any more unsafe than a lot of other cities in the world. Take the usual precausions and dont flash your Rolex, then you will be OK. Salvadorians are wery kind people. Give a smile and you will get a smile. We loved El Salvador and will come back.

We stayed here for two nights and were very impressed with the safe neighborhood and the helpfulness and friedliness of hotel staff. Additionally, the food in the restaurant was excellent and well priced. This is a budget hotel so the furnishings were not elegant but very substantial, beds were comfortable,each room had a balcony or patio and the grounds were very wel kept. A very good choice!!!

A group of friends and I were spending a weekend in San Salvador to go see the motorcycle races at el Jabali. We stayed at the Novo Apart-hotel and I must say we had no complaints. The service is really friendly and there is someone who speaks english all the time. The rooms were very clean, the bed was comfortable and if you are having a long stay in San Salvador, the rooms are equipped with a small kitchen. They're pool area is nice and relaxing. The restaurant had a really nice choice of plates and the food was really good and nicely presented. Their kitchen closes at 10pm, we arrived about 15 minutes before that and the kitchen had no problem serving us dinner even though we were a large group, we ordered a la carte. Their breakfast is included with the room, they had a nice buffet, with a nice variety of choices. I also loved the fact it was really close to Galeria, a huge mall and right on the main street there is a large selection of restaurants, everything from very trendy restaurants to all the American fast food franchises. The Galeria also has a movie theater. I'd definitely recommend it and stay here again.

Some friends and I travelled to El Salvador for a week. We were searching for a small like hotel, a cheap one, since we're backpapers and surfers... I most say that this hotel actuallly delivered us what we were searching for,it was cheap, clean,good "huevitos con platanitos" as they called their breakfasts,and the overall service was very kind and heartwarming even though almost nobody could speak English(only a few people could talk to us inside the hotel, a lady and a grumpy looking mister). But I most say that they helped us know the "insides" of El Salvador. I give them a 4.2/5
