We can confidently say after having spent a month on Santa Cruz, Isobela and Cristobal, that good hotels, dining and value for money is virtually non-existent on any of the Galápagos Islands...BUT there are literally a handful of exceptions and Casa de Nelly is one of them. Our room was superb, excellent views, clean and windows on three sides that... More

We came to San Cristobal after a cruise, with no accommodations booked in advance - just with some hotel names written down. After looking at several places on the malecon, we went to check out Casa de Nelly, which stands practically on the "outskirts" of town (a few minutes' walk, anyway). Nelly showed us around. For the first night, the... More

We just recently came on a school based trip with teenagers and the rooms were all so close together that they could spend lots of time in the rooms and in the courtyard area. The breakfast was wonderful and the people were so friendly! We walked into town and to the beach, and always felt safe and happy returning to... More

This is a great location just a few minutes walk to the Malecon. The rooms are spacious and everything works. Our room had a refer and there is a common kitchen where you can cook if you choose. We paid a bit more for a top floor room with a view deck. Worth every penny. Nelly and her staff go... More

We stayed for two weeks at Casa de Nelly, located a bit away from the main fray of the malecón and near lovely Playa Mann beach. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and the A/C is absolutely wonderful to have on this sweltering island. There's a kitchen that guests share, and other than the usual diffusion of responsibility... More

Location is close to Mann beach, which is a small and nice beach to visit when arriving to San Cristóbal. The Hostal is also close to the harbor, which is where most of the restaurants and stores are located. The owners are helpful and kind. The place is clean, comfortable, and the surrounding is quiet. You can rent either a... More

This Hotel lies halfway between the harbor of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno and Playa Mann. In this price-bracket (we payed 80$ for a triple-room) Casa de Nelly is the best option in town! The owners are very friendly & helpful. A great place to relax after a long day snorkeling. The correct address is: Av. Tijeretas y Manuel Agama (sector Playa... More

This hotel is fantastic in every way! Recommended to us by our guide Rick at "Come to Galapagos". Our room was on the top floor with an amazing view of the harbour. Beds are very comfortable and shower is hot which is not always the case in South America. Great location! Close to main boulevard of bars and restaurants and... More

Location at NE end of this village is distant from eating places but being in a small village not a big issue. Nice room. Top floor has partial harbour views. No breakfast. Kitchen not open to guests. Manager sometimes disorganised but always cheerful.

We stayed three nights at Casa de Nelly to kick off our Galapagos vacation. The Casa is about a 20 minute walk from the airport and a very short 5 minute walk from both the main boardwalk/downtown area and the Interpretation Centre/Playa Mann area. Great location overall, as you're close to everything. I booked with Nelly by emailing her directly... More
