Imposing Hotel that can be appreciated even from remote parts of the city

This is the best hotel I’ve stayed at in San Salvador and I’ve stayed at a several throughout the years. Its an imposing structure that radiates grandeur and class. I went with my partner up to the volcano
and it was easily distinguised amongst the sea of grays and blues that made up the city landscape. The staff are curteous and professional and the breakfast is an excellent and delicious way to start off the day. The view from the room is impressive and looking up at the building from the pool leaves you in awe. This was formerly the Hilton Princess and it can be appreciated from all corners of the city. The rooms are excellent. I had an issue with the bathtub handles that were quickly rectified to my satisfaction. I lost a keycard but was not charged, a somewhat common practice with other hotels. The location is excellent and the its surprisingly affordable. Definitely reccomended.

Wonderful hotel for business travel

I was only at the Barcelo for three days in Sept. 19, but I hope to go back in the future! The staff was great, the breakfast was wonderful, and the location seemed super too. The hotel is right by the art museum and many delicious restaurants.

Roxana took care of all our needs and it was great that our business meeting was able to be held within the hotel.The food and refreshments were delicious and the bathrooms were clean and welcoming to our 30+ attendees.

My room was clean and all cool. Not sure which side I stayed on, but I had a beautiful few of the mountains and city when I woke up. Any/all the desk clerks that I interacted with were very helpful. (Arranging pick up and drop off to the airport, etc.) I am terrible and do not speak any Spanish, but this was not a problem as everyone spoke English.


We stayed here for one night only, we are so disappointed at ourselves for not booking this hotel for our entire San Salvador stay, the room was sensational, the service was great, the facility were top quality and location was central and perfect.
