They couldn't find my reservation/payment, so I almost had to pay twice. The bathrooms don't have good ventilation so all the smells go into the bedrooms. The lady at the front couldn't tell me where to catch the bus to go to the airport. It's a small town, she should know. I never did get an answer. The night watch... More

We stayed here after we decided to leave our first accommodation we had booked as we weren't happy with it. The staff were helpful, the room was good with a comfy bed. The only draw backs were the AC was loud but we could sleep without it on in December, and the shower hot water was pretty average. They did... More

We read the reviews in tripadvisor but didn't confirm a hotel until we arrived at Port Ayora (Santa Cruz). We (2 females) booked a room with 2 beds (1 double, 1 single) for $50 a night. Our friend booked a single bedroom for $30 a night. If you pay cash they don't charge the extra fee on the credit card.... More

the location is great. Rooms are without any complaint. Be ready To climb some stairs, our room was in The 4th floor. In The First room, The Aircon was Not working. The replacement room had a terrible noisy Aircon, which was very old. Breakfast was okay, Nothing special And no variety. Okay for The Price.

We spent 3 nights at Hotel Espana. The hotel is close to everything in Puerto Ayora and easy to find. Our room was very comfortably large, well lit, nice bed and bathroom. Staff were friendly and attentive, the breakfast (which is an extra $4) is simple but fine. There was limited availability of wifi and had to use other places... More

Lovely hotel, stayed here for 6 nights. Staff really friendly, room huge, fresh towels every day, aircon, free wifi (in common area only) and great location from restaurants, laundry, shops etc! Only slight negatives were that the shower temperature was either scolding or freezing & that after requesting a twin room we got one double bed & one single bed... More

This hotel was only a couple of streets from the harbour and the main street. Our room was huge with a balcony. The room was really clean & the beds were comfy. It was in easy walking distance of everything we needed. The staff were friendly & helpful. But in my opinion there are other hotels in Puerto Ayora that... More

We booked this hotel for 3 nights in July 2014. We paid $50 per room per night. The room and bathroom were clean but I do not recommend this hotel. My first impression was not good - there were too many warnings: "If you spot towels, you must pay $15", "Mattress urinated all be paid in full" My second impression... More

We booked this hotel for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. It was very clean, with a nice sitting in the lobby in hammocks. We stayed on the 4th floor (lots of stairs), and there was construction on top starting every day at 7am, but it didn't bother us because we left the hotel early. The hotel is two... More

Really enjoyed my stay at this cheap and cheerful hotel close to the center of Puerto Ayora. Reception staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, and the downstairs open lobby with the hammocks and couches is a great place to sit and relax. Room was small and basic but bathroom was adequate with hot water so no complaints from me!
