Casa ILB il Bongustaio is Italian owned and by far the best boutique hotel in San Salvador. Your alternative in the entire country would be chain hotels such as InterContinental and Sheraton. Casa ILB il Bongustaio is small, intimate with only 5 suites and 4 staff. The suites are up to a surprisingly high standard with separate sitting area, comfortable bed, flatscreen Tv and L’Occitane products in the bathroom. The same as Four Seasons used as their standard products in all their hotels.
The suite and enitre hotel is spotless clean and has a great feel to it. The hotel is mainly used for business people and it’s really perfect for that. Working desk in the room and high speed complimentary wifi. The service is hard to judge. Only the manager speaks a limited English, but the entire staff had a great attitude and were very helpful with all requests during my stay. Two surprising facts would be that the check out time is 1 PM instead of the standard 12 in other hotels and that breakfast only is served until 9 AM. To sum up it’s a beautiful little hotel with a great feeling. Their suites has a very high standard and this is surely the place to stay in San Salvador, especially if you are tired of the typical chain hotels.
My opinion: Great experience.
