We stayed at this hotel during a school tour I was running. The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. The students enjoyed the pool and the gate locked at night to see who was entering the leaving the area. The food in the restaurant was acceptable and we had access to a 5 gallon water cooler to fill... More

My friend's aunt who is from Ecuador got us a great rate for 3 nights. Included in our fees were rooms, a few tours and breakfast. Rooms: The rooms were clean, but the shower plumbing was somewhat clogged and water pressure was inconsistent. It didn't bother us too much so we didn't do anything about it. Staff: They were helpful... More

I booked this for my parent's trip to Galapagos because I would be working and wanted a place with a good location. My parents are in their 70's and speak no Spanish. The staff was amazing to them. Their suggestions for activities were exactly what my folks wanted. The rooms were clean and modern. The location is steps from the... More

Go Elsewhere We stayed in over 50 hotels and guesthouses over the past year. Ninfa rates last in our experiences. The staff is unfriendly to downright nasty, excluding the dining room staff, who are very nice. The rooms are moldy (we had 4 rooms, each of which suffered from mildew stench and visible mold). There is construction going on, so... More

Great location. Looks nice with courtyard, pool, pool table. Free breakfast daily and the food workers were very cordial. Check out your room beforehand. Smallest bathroom ever and felt like crackden. People were helpful though.

Was on a business trip in October 2012 and stayed in the newer portion of the hotel, which they called a suite. The nightly rate was about $ 135 + tax. The room was on the second floor, no elevator. It had rained slightly so the steps up were very wet and a little slippery. Had to carry my suitcase... More

The pool was nice and the food was extremely mediocre -- unless you are fond of small, moldy smelling rooms in the old section (where they automatically place you if you're with a tour) or love the smell of raid that accompanies the upgrade to the "suites" even though it is a much nicer room, you might want to stay...

We booked a 5-day tour in Quito and arrived here. The lodge (cheaper) option has a small bathroom and a basic room with AC and minibar. It's not too bad considering the whole 5 day tour (includes 4 breakfasts, 4 lunches, and 4 dinners) is $485 per person exclude air ticket. The local people only pay $ around 280 I... More
