Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The location is excellent, close to shopping malls, restaurants, bars, etc. The breakfast buffet covers everybody's needs, including some local dishes. Great bar on the first floor, as well as a batista style coffee shop. Amazing gym, fully equipped, and plenty of equipment. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because of the lousy WiFi.

13 Day stay. GOOD: Personnel is very helpful and friendly. Rooms are very roomy. Very good location across the street from a small Mall. BAD: Food in the 10th Floor (Executive lunch and dinner) - the meats were mostly dry. Television - Outdated and without features like Netflix, Youtube, etc Wifi - Disconnected on a daily basis and very hard to reconnect. It took hours most times and sometimes didn't get to re-connect until the next day.

The breakfast was excellent and the staff were very nice Stay here if you find yourself in San Salvador

I thought I picked the right location to stay, and when I found out a certain soccer team had stayed there the previous week, I was assured of my decision. When the most famous footballer in the universe sleeps there (the one from Argentina), you’re in good company. Service and staffing were friendly and helpful, and the rooms were elite for San Salvador. The city is an upcoming destination, so there isn’t a roster full of upscale hotels (Four Seasons, Ritz, W, etc.), but Barcelo is filling that void rather nicely.

Any time I’m in San Salvador with my family, I always try to reserve a room at the Barceló. I have stayed at other high end hotels in San Salvador and none of them compare to the service and quality we experience at the Barceló. The staff is wonderful, the rooms are extremely comfortable and the breakfast buffet has a great selection to choose from.

We decided to stay at a Barceló Hotel in San Salvador based on previous great experience in Barceló Hotel in Guatemala City. The hotel was very nice, good amenities, food was excellent, drinks as well. Elevators were a little slow. Staff was very professional, and we felt welcome all the time. It was my birthday and they have a very nice detail. Location was perfect. Lots of great restaurants, and shops/malls around. The surrounding areas of the hotel were very clean, and most important, very safe during the day, and at night as well. I will definitely recommend Barceló Hotel. It was also conveniently located in a very nice area.

Great choice in San Salvador. Much preferred to stay near Zona Rosa vice the historic district due to traffic. Housekeeping is excellent, A/C works well, everything is clean. This was once a Hilton, but is now owned by the Spanish concern. Still has a slight aristocratic feel to it. The hotel bar, Churchills, was the only full service bar we could find in town. We looked, too! Professional staff. Much recommended.
